As far as new trends go, 2010 will be the year when cozy cottages, secluded lighthouses and rustic cabins finally get hot. All puns aside, this was fun to paint and thanks everyone for the help!
Simulated process with maybe a light coat of sparkly metallic glitter over the water.

I love how many Kinkaid fans will come up to this shirt when i'm wearing it and say "what a wonderful shirt!", then notice the soft-glow on the robot happily and peacefully torching the shit out of the entire scene, and look at me with disgust as they give me the finger and shuffle off.

I'm so looking forward to that.

awesome skillzzz but to make it work on a shirt you need to find a way to make it blend more harmoniously to the medium, at the moment it looks a little cut and paste

[+duracell-]

I can't believe you painted all this and then forgot the cherry on top, which is the hiding of the letter "N". I spent at least 10 minutes searching and no payoff. I'll have to dock 2 pts for that.

awwwwwesome

HA HA! The hilarity of the scenic landscape and cottage paired with the flames and robot is cracking me up! I agree - 5$

I'm not sure it has anything to do with 2K10, but it definitely is print material

Great art, looks kinda clumsy on the shirt, though.

ndstillie
ndstillie profile pic Artist

^ Probably due to my photoshop skills. The edges will be paint textured and gradually fade if this were to be a print. also putting it on white is definitely an option.

border transition could be a little softer, and I could quibble about shirt color, but that's all incidental to the overwhelming awesomeness on display. definitely needs to print.

$5


I agree about the border transition could be fading out at the edges more, but I think if it were on a lighter-coloured tee like creme this would be less noticeable.

i agree that if you worked a bit harder on blending the image into the shirt you'd have a real definite winner on your hands, but the image by itself is great.
