Loving the season so far, but glad I haven’t read the books. The season sounds like it has been veering significantly away from the books.

5/1/15 Top Pick; The Last Hand Standing

TextmateIcon Composition РInteresting combination of image and type. The type acts almost like part of the image.

TextmateIcon Lines & Forms РGreat simplified render of the Game of Thrones characters. I really enjoy how very little info is given in the background to reveal the characters.

Thank You Laughing Devil

07/01/2014 Top Picks – Daily Shirt Designs

Good and evil. Light and dark. Positive and negative. Day and night. Any of these dichotomies could describe the relationship between adoptive brothers Thor and Loki. I present this conflict today in the form of two designs.

It’s not hard to imagine Loki embracing his power and status among the ancient civilizations is it? With that charm, wit, and cunning one couldn’t help but feel the presence of a god.

07/01/14 Top Pick; Loki-Tut

star Composition Р Bold, well-balanced render of this God of Mischief.

star Texture –¬†I love the repeated horizontal lines in this design creating dynamic patterns. The small intricate lines create a variety of textures throughout the design. I especially enjoy the circular lines in the horns.

Thank You Jimiyo

The metaphorical “light in the darkness” comes through here quite literally with the God of Thunder, Thor! While he may not be able to match Loki’s brains, he makes up for it with his formidable brawn. He also has a great butt, just ask Natalie Portman. ūüėõ

07/01/14 Top Pick; God of Thunder Returns

star Composition – Beautiful and dynamic angle. The figure is also in a great action pose.

star Color – Wonderful use of positive and negative space. I really enjoy the teal thin outline around the negative space figure. The bright stark thunder bolt creates a wonderful contrast against the dark scene.

Thank You Six Eyed Monster

06/18/14 Top Pick; Bete De L’Apocalypse

Great design depicting Hellboy as a prancing demon, labeled with his real name Anung Un Rama¬†(“Upon his brow is set a crown of flames”).

starColor РNice creamy light yellow paired with the deep crimson red creates a nice contrast.

starConcept – Interesting concept of having Hellboy look like the infamous French Quina Imp Poster.

Thank You Spicy Monocle

06/18/14 Top Pick; Headlight Glasses

His side slicked hair, light gray suit, and bright red tie make Pee-Wee easily recognizable.

starComposition РWonderfully balanced frame around main figure. The horrors of the forest seem to surround poor Pee-Wee.

starLines and Forms РEach animal is nicely formed and rendered in an etch like quality. I really enjoy the bear in the top right. His open mouth and glowing eyes look amazing.

Thank You Dave Quiggle

06/18/14 Top Pick; Dark Fiction

Both seductively appealing and horned, this is a match made in hell.

starConcept – These¬†two super villains would make an awesome evil team! These two would definitely “shepherd the week though the valley of darkness”.

starLines and Forms – Nice, clean simplified render of both characters.

Thank You Zerobriant

04/29/14 Top 3 Pick; Avengers of Shield

“Earth’s mightiest heroes”. The design is a nice circular badge-like composition, segmented with¬†a character in each compartment. Together, they form the shield.¬†Each hero is nicely rendered using positive and negative space. The small white details make them pop and give each hero their identity while giving the design complexity.

Thank You Alecxps

04/29/14 Top 3 Pick; Great Scott!

“There’s that word again. “Heavy.” Why are things so heavy in the future? Is there a problem with the Earth’s gravitational pull?” A deliciously clever mash-up of Back to the Future and Scott Pilgrim! Scott Pilgrim is portrayed here by Marty McFly as he performs his “Go, Johnny ¬†Go!” scene from the end of Back to the Future. Wonderful line and color render of the figure. I enjoy the typography treatment of the letter forms especially the thunderbolt T’s. The large white letters nicely balance the colorful figure underneath.

Thank You Coinbox Tees

04/29/14 Top 3 Pick; ESCAPE

When the president or his family is trapped in a major U.S. city surrounded by savages, who are you gonna call? It’s gotta be Kurt Russells’s one-eyed, warrior persona “Snake”! Wonderfully distressed, this figure is rough and ready to rumble. I very much enjoy the unnecessary, but much appreciated detail to the figure’s hair. The design’s bottom is very nice balanced to the top. Although they are similar, I enjoy that they are not entirely identical.

Thank You CS3INK
