  1. Great illustration.
  2. Threadheads will probably not like the boobs or the hard edge square shape.
  3. Good luck.

i think the illustration is great, and i think i know what you were going for with the box, but i just do not like the outline of the box on the shirt.

amaliaslash

-don't confine yourself to a square with a border, it's a tshirt and that looks weird.
-your illustration style is neat, but i know a lot of people are going to have a problem with the girl's boobs that look like green olives. they look a little goofy to me., but for the most part they don't belong on a shirt? i dunno.

amaliaslash

oops. didn't mean to repeat what everyone said.

Congrats on that 2nd sub, you made it to the list.

Mimeon

Love the illustration, great colours dont know how the title fits in. I have to agree with previous post that the box does confine you a bit. Cos im sure you could come up with more. Have no problem with the boobs. Bring on more boobs for all I care. It is Satan after all. Who cares if they look like olives what are they suppose to look like? Pancakes!

The Ending

is that a trident he is holding in his other hand or...... ill stop there shall i hahaha fantastic illustration as usual!!!! 5

It's an amazing illo, more great line work and color. I knew when I saw it in your blog voters were going to not like boxes. If this doesn't do well. I would say re-submit but use the flames and smoke to finish of the design instead of the box. With your talent it's only a matter of time for you to get a print. None da less great art!

yes to echo the above statements...
your illustration skills are amazing, and a great style.
but, yeah the medium of a t-shirt requires a bit of a different approach to layout. [exactly what "edword" stated]

Beautiful artwork. You got skillz. Just lose the square frame. I love the scratchboard look you got going on. 5

Sinareo

The art is cool, but is this just an excuse to have boobies on your shirt? I agree that the square frame is lame, but this doesn't seem to be a Threadless shirt, know what I'm saying?

I like your style but the boobies are abit odd - bit big maybe?? - never thought I'd say boobs were too big!!! nice style.

double awesome

jamonit

I think you should use your skills and make something that will "fit" the threadless style that people tend to like. You will dominate.

I'm glad someone else uses 'threadheads'

the detail is freaking insane.

Just made an account so I could comment on this shirt.
As to the misogyny, I think that perhaps one is missing the point; this is Satan, embodiment of evil, and he happens to be presented as a dude. Art is a slippery thing to define, especially when it is confused with individual tastes. I am hard pressed to find another designer with as much technical expertise so far, and give this shirt a five for provoking so much spirited discussion.

you are a master, penguinx.

Great drawing as I suspect it will continue to be -- however the box doesn't work for t-shirts, so if you could just re-sub to where the illustration fades out somehow, you win.

g-regulate profile pic Alumni

your technique is superb (i loved the vid you posted too). besides the box, my suggestion would be to put it on red - that's a heck of a lotta ink to put on a shirt. good luck!

Really digging your style my man, and you are correct with taking some of the advice people have given you here and shunning some of the others. Things you should listen to if you wanna get printed here: no box, no boobs. As for the other things, about "toning down your style" and especially the "people here don't like veins, gore, etc.", screw that. I have never seen a vein bias on this site (lol), and if this is your style, keep your own way to illustrate and interpret the thoughts in your head, not conform to exaclty the way nearly every else on here draws. but yes, you can probably curb your illustrations to something more digestible for the Threadless crowds without losing what makes your drawings so indivdualistic...i like your artwork, so hope to see more submissions in the future here...good luck!

Not really my style as far as a shirt, but damn, good work. Horn dude's forehead bothers me a little. What are those weird sort of vertical wrinkles or whatever? One looks like an "x" and the other looks like a giant bead of sweat. Anyway, props again for the skills.

You know what would be really awesome? If, instead of a naked chick, he was holding something random in his hand, like an ice cream cone or a penguin. Or a sunflower!

rudra

ditto to FRICKENAWESOME's last comment

you got the box thing - it's fine for print, but they are [i]very[/i] hard to make work on a tee - it's the "distortion over anatomy" thing

boobs aren't a black or white thing - they have printed boobs - but they should be tasteful, and appeal to a larger audience - as said these ones look like martini olives - so, don't be afraid of nudity - just something a little more "natural" or something that really has a purpose in the overall image

amazing technique and illustration!!

awesome, but not for a t-shirt.

I agree with most of the folks had to say, but a great illustration no less. 5 for drawing skills alone.

shadow_shrine

not for a shirt...to huge... try this on a poster!

Willish

It is stunning creative work. With its depth and detail but again seems more poster orientated.
Still I look forward to future designs.

Ms Squid

I have to wonder at the point of creating a shirt that seems linked very closely to rape what with the girl looking freightened, being tied up, yeah it's satan and so that makes her a "bad" person, but satan is a figment of someone's imagination, rape is a reality. you have to be careful when creating things like this as there are many examples of images that are suggestive of rape being extremely painful for victims, and bringing on panic attacks and the like, i think you ought to consinder the potential pain this image would cause. be considerate to your fellow humans, if you're going to show satan hurting someone, choose something that isn't so horroific

mindtrance

Make the beads of sweat a different color so it stands out as sweat and not part of the actual satan. They appear to be boils to me :)

this is just tasteless, and not at all creative


Nope. Not at all creative. I shit better illustrations than this.

sigh Some people are silly.

i'm going to buy this shirt and rape someone while wearing it

i love it! oh but why a square! 5

pamelf

I don't think the box would be as confining if you made the image a lot smaller. If it sat in the middle of the chest it wouldn't look so weird. That said though, the image is such a spectacular piece of art that it seems a shame to make it smaller.

truly satan is holding a dildo.

HeadOrange

It looks like any 50's horror comic involving women and satan.

VeronicaS

Like the box
Maybe boobs are a go for guys, but mine stay under my shirt :)

alexan

i think it looks porn like,
dosent work for me

brittbolen

I don't get it? What's the point of this? Should have left it in your high school art class sketchbook. It's bland and uninteresting subject matter, and the style is overwrought and way too precious. Loosen up. Or, find a subject that actually makes sense with your over-the-top, comic-book illustration style.

brianfuchs

you are talented, but I hate this.

vermillionhorror

Love the satan drawing, but the girl's boobs make the T unwearable. The fact that you've gotten this much response from people is awesome, though. Keep up the great work!

that red hair dye is seeping into your brain and making you stupid.

Why the fuck everyone say the boobies made the T unwearable? I can wear this in the church for all I care.

Great designs often get bad scores and awful designs get good scores, and even printed. This deserved more, sure, but to not sweat it is the stance I would take too. You're clearly going to hone your content/execution with each sub, and I'll eat everyone that commented here so far if you're not printed eventually.

I love your work Penguinx, it's classic stuff. I'm amazed at all the "cutesy", kiddie-ass shit that gets high marks. Whatever, man. Keep doing your thing. Thanks for sharing your submissions.
