This hypnotizing, maniacal grin is share by both The Joker and Oogie Boogie. Batman replaces Jack Skellington, standing tall over the scene. Batman’s wind-blown cape creates interesting wild shapes also mimicked throughout Joker’s crazed appearance. The city scape along with the “HA” signs create wonderful visual complexity and keep the eye jumping around the design. The lighter long stokes in the background along with the lighter figures in the teeth nicely break up the solid yellow plains keeping the design active. The Batman logo background also mimics the pumpkin shape of The Pumpkin King, Jack.

This Dark Brotherhood sign would nicely mark the underground settlement in Skyrim. Wonderful, well-balanced composition with bilateral symmetry. I enjoy how the crossed arms create an arrow which points to the red hand print. The thick red outline really makes the design pop and serves as a nice clean trim around the design. The skeletal figure is mostly made up of soft grays, except for the white on the blades, giving them a highlight and a shine.
Thank You Hilary White

Only class 5 engineers may sport this design. This interstellar mining ship is portrayed small in the lower center. The name of the ship is in a large, bold font on a curve in the top center. Together, they anchor and contain the other components in the design as they seem to float in space. Isaac’s plasma cutter tool dominates the center of the design, a makeshift weapon for dismembering Necromorphs. This calm and simple design hides the gruesome and hideous nature of Dead Space. A subtle shirt that non-gamers would never look at twice.
