Where’s my pump-action shotgun? “I like to keep it handy… for close encounters”.
Texture – Wonderful dripping wet effect.
Color scheme – Awesome dimensionality developed with color. The bright green gives the design an acidic look. While the bright white teeth against the black background almost shine like metal.
Appeal – The bright colors on the dark background really make this design pop. The large size of the Alien head coming towards you is definitely eye-catching and a little scary.
Thank You InkOne

“Hypnotized, I’m shakin’ to my knees”
Execution – Wonderful translation of the original Def Leppard album cover.
Color Scheme – Great selection of colors. They all harmoniously glow. I really enjoy how the Loki helmet shines brightest in the center giving the design a 3-d effect.
Complexity – The wonderful dynamic angles keep the eyes moving throughout the design.
Thank You JuanFoo

“They’re all gonna laugh at you!” This image is just as incredibly shocking as the events of the movie Carrie. This might be the first shirt I’ve ever seen that actually scares me! The design really captures the anger, fear, and pure horror of the moment. The red pools and drips wonderfully delineate the negative space creating the figure of a scorned girl. The artist did a wonderful job of giving the design just the right amount of information to create the image. The contrast of the bright white teeth and bright blue eyes help reveal her facial expression of pure anger and fury. I absolute love her delicate hands that seem to writhe in pain and direct her power.

Classic good vs. evil. What an amazingly complex image. The gigantic, Lovecraftian Cthulhu made up of dark negative space with bright gleaming eyes towers over this cityscape made up of thin, long strokes. While the little hero in the bright positive space jets up in the center ready to defeat the monster. I love the texture created by the slanted sketch hatching to show the destruction. It nicely contrasts with the soft billowy look of the clouds above.
Thank You Karmazero

Game over for this little floating spirit. The other little neon buddies, Blinky, Inky and Clyde, hover nearby to lay a dead Pinky to rest. The Little Ecto Trap serves as a nice little open casket. Nice clean lines and solid colors. I enjoy the little expressions on their faces. Each spirit portrays a different emotion: shock, sadness, and reflective. Who knew these little guys could be so expressive? The angles, perspective, and slanted lines on the Etco Trap make the design dynamic.
