Superstition themed submission based on the ol' belief the "the sound of bells drives away demons because they are afraid of loud noises"

note: the spelling in the title of this shirt is purposeful

Kewl! I'm not sure about the shape; it's awfully symmetrical and might be mistaken for something Buddha-like from a distance...which is not all bad, actually. Great demons!

It IS an awfully symmetrical design. It looks almost like a....bell-shaped thingie.


This is fantastic. Especially on the hoodie.

This looks really good! I like the skulls at the bottom.

Its actually 4 colors (so less), except some of the highlights (on the bell mainly) got messed up and are slightly off, but the file has already been fixed.

was it because of loud noises?
never knew that
thought it was because back then bells were usually church bells and that then implies something holy
awesome shirt
:D

thanks everyone...

koager...I actually dont know, I didnt research it, we had a list of superstitions to pick from...but I do know that churches/barns used to be round so demons couldnt hide in the corners, which may mean that being "holy" wasn't enough

Love the color!!!! For some odd reason this reminds me of Wishbone can't remember what piece of literature it was on ....maybe the time machine where there was this place that was dark and had demon like creatures in it.....umm...lol I have no idea

Great!

I like it; but the fact that you have used just a line to illustrate the demons but filled the foot that crosses the colored portion irks me a little. thats just me though, so don't worry about it.

hey oJimo, I used the brown fill to give the sense that the demons weren't just lines, but solid masses...I can see how it might not work for everyone, but it was my best solution to the color limitations

I really dig this design and the colors used, i just wish there was more action or some kind of effect to make the bell look like it was producing a really loud noise...maybe some line warping? Still a 4$ from me tho b/c of sheer intensity of the design.

Because demons are supposed to be about temptation, so I was tempted to draw them with larger breasts...except only one demon's breasts are actually "huge"

cool... i feel like you stopped the design too soon, could be much more fluid and crazy

yeah, I did stop early on this, because I had to get it in for the alumni thing by the deadline
