Deus Ex Machina
Larger version at;
Human hand is optional
what kind of message is this?
Looks fantastic on the shirt. Greta detail.
wow... quite a striking image... excellent detail too.
but what does it mean??
Great work, although I would prefer it without the other hand
deus ex machina means "god from a machine."
it's a literary technique...anyway, this is the literal version of it!
Art means what YOU want it to mean, alina. Neat design, the intricate God hand looks fabulous. The colors chosen are so weird, but strangely work. Instead of a floating human hand, why not a smaller full figure reaching up?
great detail on this one.
Deus ex machina referred to the tricks that playwrights would use to solve an impossible/unlikely plot situation. In other words, the sky would suddenly open up and the hero would be lifted into the sky for no reason, other than to get him out of jeopardy...
dude... you are walking in god country here, this is one of those designs i don't have to think about buying because the reaction is immediate. just perfcect
Ah, fantastic! I think the human hand is unnecessary, the the art and the theme are great.
ohh!!! its you, your design "what makes it go" was blaster, it must be printed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
killer on the detail man!
Theatre nerds love it!
I agree with mezo about the smaller human figure btw.
mezo, I tried it with a human figure, but it came across as too specific. I thought a human hand would be more of a symbol, more universal.
Is there any way to make the hand be more in the style of the god hand or the clouds and less photographic looking?
without the human hand pls! looks great with those colours
top notch illustration and execution of the mechanical hand, really nice.
The mechanical hand is amazing, but the clouds look a little off. Great work, though. 5.
Excellent design. I definitely think you should keep the human hand -- parodies "Hand of God" nicely.
I want this on my torso. Right now.
i like this but i think the human hand should have been more clear a bit like the robot hand or lose it and make the cloud more dense GREAT CONCEPT THOUGH
The positioning of the robotic hand really wierds me out, but in a good way. Just an odd position to draw it, but by no means does this mean i don't dig it. I didn't like the human hand at first, but looking at the entire composition on the tee, it really blends in better. Great idea and fantastic placement equals a robotic god-fearing 4$ from me.
awesome. id prefer it without the human hand tho. or maybe with a little version of that hand. =]
i love it!
just not on blue.. there are so many damn blue teeshirts..
id still buy it!
I actually like the human hand but would actually like to see it as simple line art, just a black line with no fill to contrast the complexity of "gods" hand.
Beautiful work and pleased to see it has received the attention it deserves.
I dont think the human element is necessary, but it works either way, and is gorgeous
i think it'd be better without the human hand, but it's awesome either way
the light color & fuzzines (halftone) of the human hand gives
it the appearance of being beyond (behind) the machine hand
which makes it look like the hands missed at their attempt
aerial perspective -- example picture
Damn helo, thanks for the legwork. I like your interpretation.
Oh my good!! This is marvel!! Veeery good!! the god's hand is perfect!! Congratulations!! 5++
Awesome design. Great Detail!
Fantastic idea, but I agree something needs to be done with the human hand. If not lose it, then something that makes it so it doesn't just look like a floating hand.
ditch the human hand and I'll $5 it!
fugk the giraffe design, print this one instead... i would actually wear this one... bravo dan, you are amazing
congrats on both prints this week!
