Element Shirts by Tyshea Element Shirts by Tyshea
an idea ive been working on for the past few days
im really proud of how these turned out...even my parents liked them! 8DDD

but yush, i based each shirt off of one of the 5 Chinese Elements...the front is a random longish design of the element and the back is a stylized version of the Chinese character is corresponds to
__________________________

-Fire (Passion)-
the design for fire was the least creative but the most natural....there wasnt much for me to do...though i like how the front design looks like a goldfish
-Water (Serenity)-
the water one was actually quite hard to work with....i really wanted to convey the feeling of flow....so i went with very swooshy strokes....i like how the front design looks like a guitar
-Earth (Strength)-
the earth one was inspired by runic designs....ancient rock faces and temples and stuff....i used that circular Chinese coin design since i remember reading about this Asian island tribe that made their currency out of giant boulders...i like how the front design resembles a sword
-Wood (Growth)-
for wood i tried following the grain of trees...it was pretty easy once i decided on that idea.....the front obviously looks like a branch xD;;
-Metal (Inginuity))-
metal is always my favorite element to stylize...there are so many options for it to use....this time i went with gears and high-tech-ish looking designs....i even used the USB symbol at the top of the front design XDD

These are amazing, I'm currently making my own OC and his powers being able to control all the elements. I have been trying to come up with cool elemental tattoos. I like your idea very much, great work :D

So well designed! I think the iconography of the characters and elements, their melding and expression, is brilliant.
