I liked the idea of a pair of gentlemen squaring off for a duel, but while I was working on it I realised you could make them take their ten paces and turn by unzipping and spreading it out. The back image is optional.

Oh gosh. This just might be IT. I think you've used the hoody format in a way no one else has in this comp.

And the back image should be Mandatory!

Great, great stuff. The illo is SICK and the colors really translates all the tension and suspense of the scene. A must print!

jublin

i like the bottom photo because it looks like theyre both about to shoot the girl. witch! This is one of my faves because it looks great on the hoodie and the front print doesn't cover too much of the pockets. And the drawstrings alllmost double as smoke coming from the pistols.

i actually reduced them twice before subbing. sorry.

And the drawstrings alllmost double as smoke coming from the pistols.

I'm excited to see who wins this; there's been some many amazing subs--including this one obviously! $5
"Shall we say pistols at dawn?"
"We can say it...I don't know what it means but we can say it."

kashlen

You know how I love southern gentleman...and you can't beat the damsel in distress with the perfect tits and expression. I also dig the detail on the guns.

This better print so I can buy it...

$5... p.s. I'd totally buy this as a shirt as well as hoodie.

p.s.s. who wins? The dude on the left or the right? Because my vote is for the dude on the left.

DAMG0014

Did I mention tits?

TITS!

I remember seeing your blog about this (before the tits) and thinking, "okay..." - the tits really add to the concept. This is pretty cool dude.

TITS!

Where's the "I'd buy it ... as a hoodie" button?

Doesn't matter, I'd buy it as a shirt anyway.

And a hoodie.

It will be on a hoodie because it will win the hoodie contest.

Wow. Best use of a hoodie ever! While everyone is doing the zipper/split thing no one thought of using the back as well. Amazing stuff dude. Judging by all the comments in just one day, it seems this will be the sure winner.

the back has the feel and mood of the classic WWII bomber art.. even the rising sun with the girl - the 19th century twist makes it that much more intriguing.. just loaded with qualities

bcrider

Wow; this blows my mind completely. I just love what you've done with the entire "canvas" of the hoodie.

i think the only way this zip-up should be presented in real life once it gets printed is to do the jacket trick that bill pullman did in the movie zero effect. this is a definite $5 from me!
