This piece of artwork was inspired by this great wintery season. I was contemplating about how hard it would to be survive this chilly time of the year without modern conveniences. I decided to pay homage to all the hunters who have come before us sacrificing themselves for life to persevere through time.

I chose to use two different inks, one charcoal grey for the entire scene and a silvery blue specialty ink for their cold breath. I’m debating between metallic clear or shimmer ink, let me know what you think?

.MINUS.

This is a beauty. 5

What a lovely picture with a great story. Love how you've used the entire shirt as your canvas. Really nice job on minimal inks & white shirt- really gives off that wintry feel.

Nice presentation too :)

helo

very well done!

using the whole shirt really gives the design some zing since
shirt viewers ends up resembling what the hunter is doing
by walking around the wearer like a tree during a hunt

I definitely think it would be cool inverted as well, the only negative is that it might lose a bit of it's winteriness without the white.

Thank you, Thank you!!!

I initially thought about using embroidery for the breath, but then I didn't know if it would contrast enough against the characters? If it does stand out I would definitely use it, for now I'm leaning towards metallic clear ink. Thanks for again commenting!

I hope this one gets printed because it is one of few that I would actually buy and it is on white which is my least favourite colour!

Love it!
