Human hand is optional

AlinaT

what kind of message is this?

Bramish

Looks fantastic on the shirt. Greta detail.

pickledbib

wow... quite a striking image... excellent detail too.

AlinaT

but what does it mean??

(matthijs)

Great work, although I would prefer it without the other hand

amaliaslash

hahah! awesome!

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?

adam antium

great detail on this one.
awesome

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...

Ah, fantastic! I think the human hand is unnecessary, the the art and the theme are great.

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.

jenraskopf

Is there any way to make the hand be more in the style of the god hand or the clouds and less photographic looking?

funkie fresh

without the human hand pls! looks great with those colours

herky

top notch illustration and execution of the mechanical hand, really nice.

Leslee

The mechanical hand is amazing, but the clouds look a little off. Great work, though. 5.

Ufarious

Excellent design. I definitely think you should keep the human hand -- parodies "Hand of God" nicely.

Quid Pro Quo

I want this on my torso. Right now.

$10

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

FRICKINAWESOME

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.

NomesMcFly

awesome. id prefer it without the human hand tho. or maybe with a little version of that hand. =]

kingforaday

i love it!

just not on blue.. there are so many damn blue teeshirts..

id still buy it!

Fish Pie

awesome

Robsoul

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.

Ste7en

I dont think the human element is necessary, but it works either way, and is gorgeous

jpweeks

i think it'd be better without the human hand, but it's awesome either way

OlliRudi

sweetness

helo

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
to touch

Damn helo, thanks for the legwork. I like your interpretation.

Modestodg3

Oh my good!! This is marvel!! Veeery good!! the god's hand is perfect!! Congratulations!! 5++

BrobAZ

Awesome design. Great Detail!

Cantatus

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.

polynothing

ditch the human hand and I'll $5 it!
