The Crane And The Cobra
This design is inspired by an ancient Japanese story about overcoming adversity. The crane is badly injured and he must utilise everything he has learned about balance and timing in order to pull off a fight-winning move against all the odds.
It also is inspired by the finale of The Karate Kid. I think the crane might even be wearing a bandanna.
paint the fence!
it's always great to see people trying something different from their usual style. this attempt turned out great!
SWEEP THE LEG
very pretty line work
CREATIVE! I think t-shirts should have a message... and yours gives a great one!
Very nice style. :)
like the different style and concept! good luck :D
you don't cease to amaze me with your work!!
lol great stuff as usual!
This is the funniest shirt you've ever done! The references all over the place amuse me to no end!
Or, you know, a very classy and colorful take on a time-honored story of overcoming the odds. That also is pretty dang cool too, hehe. Nice work man!
Sweet! Where's the bonsai?
Some nice strokes there buddy!
print on, print off
I get it and it looks damn good on the shirt!
Thanks guys! I'm really pleased with how it looks on the tee - thanks Rodrigo!
Really cool, love the style!
Too bad Karate Kid depicted the cobra/serpent as evil, ahh western culture...Anyways cranes destroy snakes, I hope this cobra has a chance! Awesome style as well : )

I can not submit work, who can teach me?
(If you can, please sent a sample of my work e-mail to serve as a reference)
i think it's cool, and i like where it's going, but i do think it can be simplified even further. there is so much beauty in simplicity, or rather, simplicity brings out the beauty. check out some Chinese paintings for inspiration? but i think it's nice.
Japanese paintings, I meant. Well, both. Just a suggestion~
Thanks guys - and thanks HangBok - I agree with what you say about beauty in simplicity. I did test out varying levels of simplicity in the strokes and tried to strike a balance between that and being able to clearly convey the concept.
I have heard the fable before and the design is great. $5 from me (which I very rarely give).
love the chinese-ish style.... reminds me of kung fu panda..hehe 5$$
hi fatheed, i always like your design. just wonder if you could suggest what weight of stroke for illustraion is best for tee :)
Nice to see a new style from you! ;)
I learned how to say, "This sucks!" from Karate Kid 1
