Color – Wonderful cool color scheme. Even the reds and yellows are treated cool and soft. The light, muted blues and green give Ariel an underwater look.
Lines and Forms – I really enjoy this new school tattoo style of design. Nice thick lines with interesting shading and proportions. Her hair adds wonderful oblong and organic shapes which adds interest to the composition.
Composition – This beautiful Siren’s pose is elegant and alluring. The little flounders nicely frame her beautiful face while the rope nicely contains the maritime scene.
Thank You Tim Shumate

The final season is coming up!! I have been busy re-watching previous seasons getting ready for the last. The trailers make this season look very intriguing, but I still love season 1 the best!
Creativity – Wonderful way to portray the theme song with an iconic True Blood image.
Execution – Looks amazing! Seductive, scary, rough, and the letter forms remain legible.
Composition – Wonderfully bold and balanced. The contrast of the bright white fangs with the deep red drips are breath-taking.
Thank You Zerobriant (this was an insta-buy!)

Composition – Amazing Art Nouveau style Disney princess. Ariel sits bright in the center as the various little icons of her character are nicely laid out in circular shapes radiate around her.
Color scheme – All the colors look amazing together. I especially like how the gradients really give the design depth. I enjoy how the green tones with the bright purple create a nice contrast.
Lines and Forms – The wonderful lines in the design really help give it an Art Nouveau appearance. I really enjoy the various thicknesses of the lines creating complexity. The forms and curve of the mermaid’s body are delicate and wavy giving her an “Under the Sea” look.
Thank You Megan Lara (also an insta-buy…. I am going to go poor buying all these shirts :P)
