This is my submission for the Purple Rain theme. You see the young fella on the right is laughing (perhaps at his melting elders) - ignorant of his own impending demise! It's about the inevitability of death and the optimism of youth.

I'd say that's pretty deep.

damn you fatheed! No more good subs. NO MORE! $5.

Momentarily

never thought id use these two words together in a sentence but: deep and adorable! ;)

courtney pie

man, this is really deep. (love the wax in the eye detail!)

Luke...

haha, light it up!

Ste7en

I would have liked to see some wrinkles or other signs of age on the elder candles, but it is deep and well done anyway

wotto

looks good on the tee.

Can the young candle have some hip shades or something? I saw this as a penile reference rather than an age thing. But my mind's perpetually in the toilet I guess. It's all TV's fault I tells ya! I'm still deathly envious of your drawing skillz though.

Oh...i thought you were saying the folly of youth as in the young kids were burning themselves as the elder sat and laughed, which didn't strike me particularly funny. Now i get it and it's all the more neato. As Ste7en already stated, please put some things on the each candle to designate they are old/young. After this has happended, I'm $'ing all over this!

courtney pie

but doesn't a burned down candle imply oldness, and being so tall imply that he was just lit?

ImNoLo

i think courtney pie missed something...

anyways, i rather love this shirt. I'd like it better if the two older ones had laugh lines or wrinkles or something, but it's not even needed to make this great.

Ava Adore

great, love the colours

Hahahe. It could be, I guess. Innuendo is in the eye of the beholder. Take from it what you want.

ISABOA

dude - this sent me spiraling into depression for 5$ seconds

Based on the number of comments, I didn't think this was going that well. What a pleasant surprise! Cheers guys :-)

Hmmm. Not all my recent subs have scored as well, so I don't think that's really the case. When I did the WIP for this - I said I was going for the popular cute tragic comedy concept because I know a lot of the voters have a soft spot for this kind of thing. I think if anyone else did this concept, the score would be about the same.
