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.

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!

thanks

HangBok XD

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.

HangBok XD

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.
