I'm hoping to make a real good 'un, and submit it here. I'll post updates as I progress... ;j

Inspired by one of my fav artists is Aaron Horkey. His work is NUTZ! Check him out on the google = http://dearcomputer.nl/gir/?q=aaron+horkey&s=7

    It's looking really good. I love the lettering and the scroll. My only suggestion is to perhaps move or change that shape near the "P" cause it kinda makes the word look like "Hore." Maybe if it's in a contrasting color it won't matter though.

    i don't like how the letters aren't...uniform, i guess. ocd. it feels like the big ones should both be the same size and the little ones should be the same size.

    is that a phoenix? i can't wait to see the progression.

    are you planning on leaving it as a 1-color sketch? that would be awesome

    I cant tell whats going on at the bottom but the top looks sweat. do you sketch out most of your stuff before you make it?

    1-color sketch would be awesome... but I already own "Crow"... However, it is my favorite shirt for now...

    I like it. I got no other input.

    You have an unfair amount of talent and this is just more proof of that. Looks great but I think you should take theinfinityloop's suggestion because the wing and the 'P' meet in a really unfortunate way.

    i thought it said hore at first too.

    This is hot though, i love the flames.

    Ah, instead of thinking it said 'hore' I thought it said 'hare'. Not even sure why, I guess it just made more sense in my head

    whoo hoo! thanks for all the positive feedback!!!

    it is a phoenix

    i usually do sketch 60% of it. like this one, i duplicated and copied the left side banners, so i didnt draw that.

    it will probably be a 1-4 color design. dunno. it usually evolves by itself. with art im just a worker, i just uncover whatever is supposed to be born. i never have a fully imagined vision of what it will look like. ;)

    thanks for the crits. ive fixed some parts.



    here's an update

    I was stumbling for a few hours thinking I should ssmurf the whole design, then I worked on it for a couple more hours. Im diggin it now, although I hate that I lost the pencil drawn look.

    Im really excited about how the gray on black to the right of the heart turned out! That was an accident. Very dimensional.

    I don't get what the deal is with the hands. I feel the flow of the work would be better without them. They just look like floating hands to me right now and it bugs me. :)
