This is the scene depicted on ancient amphora by the Greek painter Exekias. It shows Achilles and Ajax playing a board game in between battles. I think it is such a great image that I just had to draw. First I drew it with all the details as original but then thought this simpler image works better on the T-shirt and I guess it works on almost any color. Hope you like it!
but this isn't really your original art. you just took someone elses art. i think you should come up with your own unique and creative ideas. it would be more interesting if you drew a different version of this image or did a humorous take on this idea.
Yeah, I don't see how you made this into your own.
I really like this. I agree with optional color palettes. For some reason my eyes are first drawn to each characters facial profile. I love the style and size.
The silhouette on the left looks quite distorted - as though he has a weird growth on the back of his neck. The overall lines and proportions of the two figures have also been distorted - and the Greeks were really rather good at the whole proportion thing. I like the idea of a shirt referencing Attic art, but agree that something original rather than a distorted copy would be better.
Thank you all and let me say something in my defence:) First, I have a lot of original ideas, at least I hope so but this time I wanted to do something different, not so original but at least original on the T-shirt, I did have humorous twist ( I had Ajax saying " I win") and it's not problem to put that again if that's better and as for proportions, well I'm not ancient Greek:) and it got distorted when I put it on the T-shirt.
I disagree. I think you DID make it your own, through the silhouetting and the placement on the shirt. I'd wear it.
not many people know that Mrs. Pac Man is 3,000 years old.
Yeah,tell me about it!:) But I like debates, I like people reacting, the worst thing is when nobody says anything!
Yeah, my best score so far! Damn, and it's not even my original design:(Oh, well, this one is for great Exekias!
