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
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
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
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
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 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
we want shirts
we want shirts
water would be my element
I want one
Especially the Fire one.
I love the design ^^
P.S.- Yes I screen print my own shirts. I'm a geek lol
if you ever get them designed let me know, i want one of each, except for the fire, i want three of those. (do you have wind?)
Its probably been a while since you got a comment on this, but have you made these into real polos yet?
I'd buy one of each if they were
im actually thinking of redoing the shirt designs to be a little more graphic o3o
Really really cool!
