This has been in the making for quite some time now. Finally decided on the colors and lines. The battle between the pirates and the ninjas has raged for many ages, who will be the true victor!?
As the preview shows its a full sized 13x20 print, high density black linework and 5 other spot colors.
omg here come the comments!! this is so crazy. i hate you and love you. why do you give me such mixed feelings. i'm going to go cry in a corner now. congrats on the print in advance.
this is soooo goddamn amazing. Awesome colors, concept and composition. Super amazing. $5.
amazing! great work man!
Way to take a couple of tired subjects and turn them into one of the finest looking tee designs I've ever seen anywhere. $5, no question.
I just hope that they give this the correct print treatment when it does get put onto a t-shirt.
This gets a $10, because I'm going to buy two of them
all I can say is WOW! 5 good job
gorgeous work, I hope its a bit brighter on the shirt, so its visible and doesnt easily fade
There hasn't been a "set the alarm to buy on Monday morning" t-shirt in a while, this is it! $500
fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuucknugget! that is all sorts of awesome. screw the voting, just print it already!
my mind just exploded.
yeah this is like the ultimate sure-fire print. Very nice work!
so lovely...that is all
Very sweet. It's great timing with the taller submissions now too, I couldn't imagine seeing this at only 480 px tall.
Every single person who now attempts to do a ninja/pirate design will be shown this one.
Then they will cry..
I cant think of a more deserving 5
dude....how many hours would you say went it to making this?
awesome. need I say more? just plain awesome.
Totally awesome ellsie, I'll be buying this one for sure. Just tell them to print it on American Apparel, I'll pay the extra $2.
$5 for every character
If this doesnt print I'll eat my neighbours hat.
i hope this shirt comes printed with a special hole, so i can make love to it after i buy it
Okay! Threadless, print this shirt already!! It been like...hours since it went up!
Holy crap, we must invent a word that aptly describes how incredibly awesome this is. Until then, we will have to satisfy ourselves with alfjfjslfjsklfjklsfjlsjf.
Amazing! Sure print!
Wow, just wow. $$5 The whole things rocks, from the placement and design to the colors.
Joey Gladstone would tell you to cut it out, cause this is incredible.
looks great man, amazing details. def a print.
just truely amazing
Your colour choices are fantastic. Amazing work!
that is by far the most incredible sub that i have seen in a very long time
^what she said. $$$$$
wow! perfect! $5
i will be inside of it? 5$
ive really never seen more of an obvious print ever on threadless
i didn't realise how good this was at first glance. As I kept looking then I saw how much the different actions were intertwined. the part where a ninja is stepping on a pirate and his hat is flying off, whilst interlocking a pirate's arm that thrusting his sword which is caught in the palms of another ninja who is... and so on. good work. good luck. 5
this should've jsut gone straight to print. awesome!
I agree with what lady above me said.
great job buddy!
you summed this up in the title.
This is EPIC!
Its killing me, how long did it take you to do this Awesome work?
I'm so glad my sub isn't next to this one:) 5$
too ill for words so Amazing will have to do for now...$5
OMG!... that's bloody amazing
WTF? $5 MILLION! geez!
there will be a THREADLESS EPIC BATTLE if this doesn't get printed. i will never love another tee again ever after owning this.
and i had to go back to comment again
This is so sweet. Killer job on it.
I would love to see images from the process it took to make this
$5 easily! Amazing!
Eye seckz $5
I bow before thee ellsswhere

from the parrot to the fighting this is priceless!!!!
nice work indeed.
you're freakin amazing. $5!
W O W W Y
holy shit!!!!bestee!! $5
New word in dictionary because of this design: "refuckindiculous"
awesomeness10 = $5
Amazing! An obvious print.
print 5 can't wait to buy
106 comments on the first day, this better get printed as soon as it's done scoring
Print print print.
its a print
Badical. So so bad-i-cal. I love everything about it EXCEPT the muddy beige and pink. I think they are too soft and blend too closely together. Still. Fuck it. 5$.
I hope they print this before the holidays... $5!
if someone deserves 10,000 is you! woah!
seriously, what they all said.
Awesome, but too dark! I want people to see what's in my shirt!
you finished it!!
fuck yeah!! 5 and buyed my good man!
This is going to be the highest scoring print of all time dude.
:) sick illo
wow its just over. you already won
Not like this needs another comment...but sholy hit...
Someone finally did the perfect ninja vs pirates...i love you...i mean that...
This is so incredibly awesome. There's no doubt in my mind that this is going to be printed. And I'm going to be wearing it.
$5 (I'd give it more if I could)!
thinking this could hit a 4.
thank you everyone,
i can't begin to tell you how much i appreciate the response i am getting. 100+ comments on the first day
Also mezo and madrug and others are right, i will prolly boost some of the muddier colors to make sure this design is visible and doesn't fade.
I just need to find that balance so the design doesn't overpower the shirt
Ross' animal hunt shirt is up near 180 comments now, that means im almost as cool as Ross!
can we see a version with brighter colors? Maybe use the same color scheme just all brighter?
perhaps an 8 color version with metallic ink on the blades?
GO TO MY BLOG IF YOU WANT TO SEE SOME COLOR PLAY
I'm $5-ving this like a muthafecker.
Not that you really need it anyway - there'll be a riot if this doesn't get printed. I only hope they print enough!
5 for you. :)
... this is beyond freakingosity. TOTAL YAYNESS. LOVE MORE THAN WORDS. $5
def wil BUY! $5
GREAT $5 & PRINTED!
The more I look at this the more I love it! Based on how amazing the pirate in the bottom left corner is alone; I want to buy this. $5
This is just plain AMAZING.
Wooooahhhhh... Simply amazing!
wow, just wow, really great stuff, I could stare at this for hours!
Wow, that's a gorgeous design. Maaaan.
I'm curious, would Threadless be able to print this design at the dimensions you're looking to get? I thought prints that large were only available as Select tees.
this is beyond amazing
dude! ive always had faith in you from day one on here! you keep on giving me MORE faith just like george michael
stop it, nate, you're slobbering! :p
AND foaming at the mouth!
Boosted colors and monotone colors are both awesome. +1 metallic ink on blades!
Also, it kind of seems like they're fighting in a square .... if the fighting was sloppier it would look better :)
I predict it will break 4.3 score. They should pull this early and haul ass to get it ready for the holidays! I am buying at least 2.
beautiful illo! would like to see it a littttle less muted but otherwise, 4, id buy it!
as i said before, print this, and do a fucking select because this is the best print on threadless, of all time, no exaggeration.
Sure take a long time to do this.. very cool sub.
HOLY HOLY HOLY HOLY HOLY!
$5! Get it done threadless.
I'd wear it!
I hope this breaks a 4. I just want to see it happen. There's no doubt in anyone's mind that it's going to be printed and then probably reprinted lots. Elss, you're going to make some good money from this.
love you too jan, we will see
and i just wanted to stop in and say im blushing right now, and i dont blush often
200 comments is more than i could ever have hoped for
OKay in all honesty .. I wouldn't wear something like this (just not my kind of design) but this looks great!!!
I'm not gonna lavish compliments on you.
I'm NOT gonna lavish compliments on you.
I'm NOT complimenting lavishly on you.
I'm complimenting lavishly on you.
I'm complimenting lavishly.
Utterly brilliant - I'll be buying this.
Make it a wee bit lighter, then it's an instant win. :)
I think this is what is called positive feedback. 4 from me with a possible $
this is awesome...
the intensity is captivating
all the detail is worth all the time it takes to view it
and I hope this shames the people who go around Threadless
telling designers that they are tired of specific themes like
food with faces, skulls, hearts, etc... Ninja vs. pirates has
been around a long time, but when a designer comes in
puts a smack down like your design has done then all
critics and designers should learn from your example
that the theme isn't what really bothers people, it's the
constant flow of poor execution and lack of creativity
around a theme that people should get tired of.
i wonder what this will score?
amazing sub jeff!
awesome! ^__^ i absolutely love it
now i'm slobbering!
i'd give you more $5's if i could
we shall soon know the truth..
Very nice score.
that's a shit score consdering!
wtf.... if this was subbed a year ago it wouldve gotten at least .5 higher
deserved to break a 4 but dosent matter it will be printed with this fantastic score anyways
haha! it did too well!
it's not the highest score ever, but that's okay. in the grand scheme of things, this is a sure print, and all that matters is that we all get to wear it. congrats!
nice score man! congrats it's going to look great on a shirt!
well, this is gonna print
I agree, it should have broken the 4 barrier
Great score. You should recieve an email anytime... now.
Shoulda scored higher, but congrats and I'm buying this next week!
Just posted about this sub on Loves Threadless. :)
please please please please use silver shiny on the blades!
You know a shirt is way to the right side of fantastically amazing when it gets a 3.2 score and people are all up in arms about it! I think we just want to see a record smasher is all....anywho, on with the print!
CONGRATS on the score and print!
So can I buy this yet or WHAT?
ok, when they print this, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE print this on a Threadless Select shirt...not fruit of the damn loom...can I get a hallelujah?
dacat=== AMEN brother!!!!
they have to.. or perhaps their own brand of tees... to do it justice!!!
After looking through a bunch of my 5$'s recently, man, there are some AWESOME tees coming to us eventually, this one most certainly included.
P R I N T!
P r i n tah......!!!!!
WHY hasn't this been printed yet? Threadless is guilty of dereliction of duty!
Printprintprintprint! Best ninja/pirate shirt ever!
guys, it'll get printed. i promise. just be patient, and when it does, you better be on the site the second it comes up or you WILL miss this shit.
i'm just wondering what the guys/girls colors will be..
so freaking awesome!!!!
SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO deserving of a print, way more so than a lot of the subs out there . . .
Great work on this, it really deserves all it's plaudits.
Another awesome design.
I wish I had gotten there in time to rate it the 5 it deserves.
Setting aside some money to buy this when they print it.
is gonna take an act of good to get this printed
print it is what i was trying to say
STOP WASTING MY TIME AND PRINT THIS ISH ALREADY!!!!
WTF ARE YOU WAITING FOR THREADLESS!!!!!
HOLY CHEESE AND CRACKERS!!!
ALL CAPS MEANS I'M TALKING VERY LOUD.
Can we just call a close to the whole ninja vs pirate thing now? No one's ever going to beat this tee.
print this shirt already!
why wasnt this shirt printed?
Because Threadless print whatever they want. Obviously we don't see the number of 'i'd buy its" but judging by the comments there were a fair few of them for this design, but sometimes it seems like the voting process is a bit pointless.
Maybe it is in the process of being printed, or they are saving it for the right occasion, but my hunch is there are a large number of cutsey, fey, and generally pointless designs to print so this has been pushed out in their favour.
I think it was the shooter from the grassy knoll
Man, I missed this. So amazing! PRINT PLEASE!
this will be printed. i'm going to cry if it won't. threadless wouldn't let me cry. please. please. threadless. please.
Even though I'm broke if you print this I will buy it! Print Please
You'll dice onions?
mmm cheddar... how about some summer sausage and crackers too
If this doesn't print, I don't know what pats2fat will do...SO PRINT IT!!!
We're all scared of what pats2fat is capable of so please do...
If this gets printed anywhere else, please let us know so we can buy it.
Don't worry. It's coming. Should be any week now, they sure are taking their sweet time, though.
it will print it will print it will print
I think it's coming on Monday. Damn, I hope so.
Congrats on the print!
Woah! I have no money in my bank account, thank GOD for credit cards!
as of yesterday, my order for this shirt was shipped.
i'm. so. excited.
i got 3 of this shirt for 2 friends of and myself. it's great. I have a question though. what's the ninja called with the mask and the claws.
Voted this for Bestees.
linofthewood...I think that would be a very dangerous mime
LOL i like how the flag says "fag" on it xD
or, maybe i dont know how to read xD lol
