Blue Dragon Flowers
Influenced from the Japanese dragon, a mythical creature of power and luck.
This is a hand-drawn design, dragon on the left sleeve and the additional flowers on the left-side of chest. On black hoody jacket or long-sleeve t-shirt as my initial suggestions.
I thought about adding a stick-on tattoo of this design--for a fun day out during the summer (glue it on your arm, if you want), but it would depend on Threadless's decision.
I hope you like it.
Threadless is not in the tattoo business.
Sorry, when I sent the submission I hadn't seen the missing cloud as is on original sketch and final design. There is a curvy cloud missing above the dragon's head. Slipped when I converted to gif.
PLEASE VIEW FULL DESIGN AND LARGER VIEW
Haha, I know Threadless isn't in the tattoo business, but sometimes accessories can be cool for certain prints. It is just a suggestion, an extra... it could be a sticker too... Threadless had wall stickers some time ago... it isn't obligatory of course.
Thanks for the comments
The colors are perfect! Too damn good.
Thanks very much for the comments.
lose the gradients = winner
oh such great idea,,
I agree with eZ - like it better without the cloud, makes the head Pop more.
awesome layout though!
Depending on how many people prefer with or without the cloud, I can finalize design with that solution :) Thanks for the feedback.
does threadless actually do these things such as including tattoos, pens/markers, and stickers?
I've put the idea in the air. I don't know if it could be an option for some tees. Since some people collect tees, it would be fun to have a little extra if possible. But as I said at the beginning...it is a crazy suggestion, and Threadless does sell clothing which is obvious...it is up to them :)
Very cool! :) I am torn about the cloud thing. I kinda like having something up there for balance, although I like the the swirly shaped cloud by the dragon's chin better. LOL Also would love to see it in a different ink set, but its pretty this way too. :) Nice work!
The colors - I actually think they came out well. I wanted to use less conventional tattoo tones, colors that are currently trendy for clothing wear. So that was the influence and I actually made this design with guys and girls in mind. I don't see why it doesn't work for guys as theinfamousmatt states. Dragon's are usually manly and tattoo art has a lot of flowers...so I don't know why it would be girly, I see it as unisex.
If Threadless allows more than two tee colors, I can definitely work up a 2nd palette for it. Maybe that is an idea :)
um, i mean "pretty"
Print, if only for the stick on tatoo
And it includes a custom bumper sticker!
awesome, looks great on the hoodie, $5
i like the design better without the cloud over the dragons head. leave it as is and its awesome! i would absolutely buy it!
plus i love the tatoo idea!
