I think the text could get moved a bit, but I love this.

I think you should have taken this to the critiques first. Looks good but could use some work.

I wouldn't say "were quickly bypassed" I'd say somethimg more like "were quickly forgotten"

But otherwise I like this. It reminds me of Calvin and Hobbes.

Freshview would be correct. "People are delicious" is stating a fact, which doesn't cease to be. The tenses in the statement are fine.

jpweeks

it'd be awesome if the text was like a comic book

jpweeks

...the text needs to be more expressive

roboroller

you should have put the text in one of those little boxes like in a comic book, like where they put narration or notes from the editor.

pretty please print this. O_O

ditch the text

The entire sentence is awkwardly worded, which is what is throwing people off. Something along the lines of "Rex's ambition to become a superhero was quickly abandoned when he realised that people are delicious" would flow better and put the attention on the humor and the drawing, rather than causing the reader/viewer to spend 10 minutes trying to figure out just what it is about the sentence that bothers them.

Who cares if the sentence is a bit awkward, not all comic strip lines are grammatically amazing either, but IT WORKS. Really funny...without the text, this wouldn't be half the shirt it is. I'd like the text underneath the dino and larger, or putting this in a comic-strip type environment or box to give it more of that ripped from the comix feel. Like this a lot tho.

  1. keep the quote the way it is. it's perfectly fine.

  2. keep the font. it works.

  3. keep making shirts that i want to buy. (this one is a $5!)

The illustration is awesome. I think it works with or without the text but if we're going to turn into grammar-nazis about it, it should read, "Rex's ambitions of becoming a superhero are quickly bypassed when he realises people are delicious".

some different placements. i did the font myself, handwritten. I also changed the sentence to read: "Rex's ambitions of becoming a superhero are quickly forgotten when he realizes people are delicious". I do hope this makes people happier with it :) I may just resub.

i can also change it to say "rex's ambition of becoming a superhero is forgotten, i just reread some of the above statements. :)

LedPizza

change "quickly bypassed" to "dashed" and you've got a $5
