05/30/14 Top Pick; Bounty Hunter

(Geez, another Boba Fett shirt! He’s becoming the Doctor Who of my blog!)

star Color Scheme – The yellows, reds, and greens work well together. I really enjoy the various color splashes and the white highlighting.

starComposition – The helmet side view at a tilt gives the simple content of the design much-needed visual excitement. The mandalorian logo barely peeks out in the background. Awesome detail!

(Mario Kart 8 is out! :D!!!)

star Color Scheme – Wonderful warm color palette . I really enjoy the solid bold color shapes and gradients. The highlighting and shading of this design is wonderful.

star Composition – Well developed foreground, mid-ground, and background. Wonderful transition or fade from the block of the design to the shirt. I really enjoy the small details like the mushroom power-up and ramp in the background.

05/19/2014 Top Picks – Daily Shirt Designs

Hello loyal readers! I’m shaking things up a bit today so bear with me…

So I only picked 2 shirt designs today. I am changing it up a little because no other design really caught my attention. Going forward I will be posting only the daily designs which truly captivate me so I can give them their due. I don’t want to be stuck with a rigid 3 design quota, and this allows me more wiggle room. I hope you enjoy!

05/19/14 Top 2 Pick; Boba The Animated Series

Have you noticed all the Star Wars and Batman designs lately? Well here’s a little of both. The lone bounty hunter stands tall, surveying the scene. Wonderful, strong silhouette stands surrounded by warm copper tones and cool glowing blue details. Boba’s armor, jetpack, and cape cast a strikingly similar silhouette to Batman, which fits nicely. I really enjoy the brown copper color which I feel I rarely see paired with that bright blue. The contrast of these two colors gives the design dimension. As a designer, it is always fun to try different color combinations. Sometimes they work and unfortunately sometimes they don’t. I think this color combination was a success, I’ll have to store it in my color combo memory bank.

Thank You Nicko Designs

05/19/14 Top 2 Pick; Frosty Flakes

Cool down this summer with Elsa and Shirt Punch. These Frosty Flakes are Grrrrrreat! and magically delicious! Wonderful, well-balanced composition. I love the variation of color and thickness of the outlines. Elsa’s large bright eyes and wind-swept braided hair looks well rendered. The rest of the design consists of a wintry background with snowflakes for a well-rounded composition with depth.  I greatly enjoy the snowflake cut out shape that helps the figure’s cape transition to the shirt. Yes, I do catch these small details, and I love them!

Thank You GillesBone

shirtpunch_rogue-leader_1399177390.full

05/04/14 Top 3 Pick; Rogue Leader

Happy Star Wars Day! May the Fourth be with you! Awesome render of the X-Wing spacecraft. The amount of lines and details in this design are out of this world! I very much enjoy the old-style bold script type creating the fancy red frame around the design. The thin lines creating the sunburst around the craft are a great way to lead the eye to the main focal point and help it stand out from all the patterns contained in the design.

Thank You Buzatron

05/04/14 Top 3 Pick; Bounty Hunter

Another awesome Star Wars design today! A gruff render of the bounty hunter Boba Fett’s helmet. Wonderful use of large, bold strokes and shape to create a larger image. While this design looks plain, the dry brush effect causes a distressed look and gives it complexity. The eye is to meant to finish the shapes in certain areas which keeps this design interesting. The missing shapes and negative space give the design an element of mystery and intrigue as well, playing on the hidden identity of the man behind the helmet.

05/04/14 Top 3 Pick; Vive La Imp

Ok, so this is not a Star Wars shirt, but it is a design I definitely enjoy. Viva La Revolution! Tyrion Lannister is absolutely one of my favorite Game of Thrones characters! This design renders Peter Dinklage in a heroic and revolutionary way which fits thematically with his persona in the series. You can almost hear the shouts of “Half Man!” in the background. The solid, basic black and white colors on a red shirt is bold and makes a statement which is why this combination is usually the color palette in most propaganda. I especially enjoy the little details. Like the little lion on his beret, the slash across his face, and the three-letter label.

Thank You Nertee Designs

“Mine name is Glenn! Cyrus’ hopes and dreams…and now the Masamune, these will now become my burden! Forthwith I will slay Magus and restore honor!” A beast quote from a beast character! It’s Frog from the classic RPG Chrono Trigger! This design makes quite a splash! The splash texture is fitting and looks amazing. It also serves as an interesting method for shading. Great composition with a round time element in the background.

04/23/14 Top 3 Pick; Xphile

The truth is out there. X Philes rejoice! This design nicely conveys this science fiction horror drama television series. The letters are formed from many different elements from the different episodes: the Smoking Man, the Lone Gunmen, the elongated arms of Eugene Tooms, the list goes on! Each letter form has awesome details. All the components are very nicely handled with detail and care. I enjoy the way each component doesn’t seem forced but naturally form the letters.

Thank You Captain Ribman

teevillain_born-to-kill_1398226706.full

04/23/14 Top 3 Pick; Born To Kill

The deadliest weapon in the Star Wars’ universe is a bounty hunter and his blaster. A simple yet effective mash-up of Boba Fett and Kubrick’s Full Metal Jacket. The composition is simply made up of an interesting angle of the helmet. The design consists of a well rendered, simple line drawing. I enjoy the rough, gritty texture of the helmet. Due to its simple nature, the shirt is offered in several different color options: red ink on green shirt , black ink on gray shirt, gray ink on black shirt, and black ink on red shirt. I think all options look very appealing.

04/09/14 Top 3 Pick; Armored Legacy

“He’s no good to me dead”. Thought Boba died in that sarlacc pit? Think again! With any luck, our favorite bounty hunter will make an appearance in episode VII! Wonderful chewed-up texture on the helmet next to the countless sharp teeth. The zillion center pointing teeth also create an inter woven texture and visual excitement. I enjoy the maroon and teal color combination opposed to the traditional hunter green and red.

What do Bruce Wayne and Ace have in common? Their fear of bats! One will transform himself into an instrument of justice, the other will… well, he’ll just transform.  The artist definitely did not mess with the [hair]do! This White Devil is nicely rendered including Jim Carey’s crazy facial gestures. Well expressed great white bat shape. I also enjoy the devil horn shaped letter forms.

Something tells me this guy is a few circuits short of a Terminator… Hey there momma! Hasta la vista! Looks like Johnny Bravo is ready for Halloween. Displaying his square jaw, large upper chest and small lower body, both figures are visually similar. Cool blue hues nicely express the leather jacket against the simple warm red background.
