Hand drawn, hand traced

EDIT redone per some requests. let me know what you think EZ.

EDIT updated again for EZ

EDIT tiny change to the DOC OC power cables on his back for EZ. Also lightened the color a tiny bit on the shirt so more detail can be seen.

  • Colemadethis

    probably your best so far.
    something about the stroke on the shirt looks off though…
  • Kyle Crawford

    yea i actually really like it too.. i think the tv is kinda meh, it looks too clean, def neeeds texture i just realized thats a vcr in his hand too…

    i could prob use this one i just have to figure out what i want taken out and added
  • dobi

    looks neat, i would almost like to see him smaller, and have the wire on the floor expand out more. also, not really feeling the text on the screen, i would almost like to see a pink brain there.
  • dobi

    also, bottom of the shirt on the left looks like crap
  • ryanmiller

    This reminds me of a few of Rob’s shirts put together, haha.. I agree with Rob, maybe take out the green text all together, or switch it out with something else. I don’t know if texture would look that great on this design, since you’re going for the clean cut vector look..
  • Kyle Crawford

    lets get some blood in there too maybe and switch the color of the shirt. liking this. i just think the shirt needs to be roughed up a little more… clean up the feet (they look too jagged)

    if more changes come up ill post them here
  • labyrinth

    yeah this is pretty sweet.
  • Joshua Stomberg

    wow, quite a lot to wake up to this morning! I’ll go make some changes, I’ll have it back in about 3 or 4 hours i would guess. EZ, do you want me to stick with the text or go for the brain?

    Oliver said: no blood necessary, although the feet are a little pointy. I think it’s pretty solid overall. I would take the black stroke off of the shirt though

    good idea to remove the black stroke. thanks.

    he’s slightly smaller on the redo … not a huge amount. I loved your idea for a pink brain in the tv set. great idea.
  • dobi

    new version looks way better dude, you are the little engine that could.

    haha, thanks. I would be lying if i didn’t say you weren’t a big influence on my silhouette work. refraction retraction is one of my favorite shirts of all time, and i just found out a couple days ago it was yours. It’s sad the lack of comments you have on your work. You’ve got some gold in them hills. :D

    Natealus said: I really dig the new version. It reminds me of Fullbleed a lot now… The crack in the TV is a nice add on and the detail on the VCR is great.

    you can see the detail in the vcr!? i can’t see it on this one … i put all the normal buttons on there for this run tho. thanks :D
  • CMYKBRAD

    Sweet, would buy this in a second!
  • Joshua Stomberg

    faithbydesign said: so much better this time around! I still think it looks a little clean but you are definitely learning from what everyone is telling you!

    I try, thanks :D
  • ryanmiller

    looking good man..
  • labyrinth

    i like the new version a lot.
  • Joshua Stomberg

    Andwhat! said: this is what more people need to do. they need to take what everyone has been telling them, turn it into something positive. not complain about so and so is a dick. this is great, it’s good to see someone progress.
    this is what the site is about, growing as a designer and learning. great job.

    one thing i still think needs a little improvement is the left side of the shirt on the zombie dude, like dobi said, for some reason it looks off. but other then that, i think you’re set.

    i redid the left bottom side of the shirt … it’s supposed to look like it’s slightly torn and pulled out of his pants … while the other side is still tucked in … kindof a “i just got the shit kicked out of me” look. not sure how I could make it look better … hmm. thanks fer the comments tho :D
  • Kyle Crawford

    ok loose the blood and the brain. I love the cracks are, if theres some kind of way that yu can make the prongs of a power cord come up kind like dr.octopus in spiderman, just like 1 or 2 that would rule, im def gonna use this dude great work!

    also when I get this from you, make it to where i could place things in the tv, so leave the inside part blank, but on mocks keep it white, man this is great

    I’ll get right on the Doc Oc stuff. brain and blood will be gone shortly :D
  • Joshua Stomberg

    i think i enjoy the brains and blood version better. this one would be easier to print though.
  • Kyle Crawford

    ok the one on the left looks too cartoonie and maybe make the wires a little thinner same size as the others
  • Joshua Stomberg

    ok, will do.
  • jfinley

    too late on this to see the original version, but this version if your best so far

  • Joshua Stomberg

    apparently. :D

    heavyprints said: Is it just me or was it like watching the underdog pull off an upset in a high profile game? Sittingduck kept trying, and keeping a great attitude, and you just kind of wanted him to succeed. lol.

    Awesome shirt, btw.

    haha, i wasn’t THAT much of an underdog. I just had to feel around for what people liked. I’ve been doing graphic design for years, this is just my first shot at putting that on t-shirts, so it was really just the same criticism I’ve always had, just on different subject matter. haha, oops, did I spoil it?
  • Randomentity

    dude, awesome work, you’ve come a loooong way.
  • jfinley

    congrats on the feature
