SUN LION is a lot different from my first submission. Going to the flip side of vector type art, this design is straight out of my pen and ink sketchbook. I distressed the design to age it a it a bit. I think it adds to the age of the art, almost a mythological creature, or ancient deity.



Thank you for checking it out,

Adam

Nice job on the sketch. I think vector art is great but your right about the sketch book ... nothing beats Pen Ink Lead

Amazing!
I dunno, though, it seems either too large or too small.

I was torn between over sizing it, or making it small, floating mid chest, even maybe on the lower side.

Mocked-up some versions before submitting it, and decided I think this is a good size. I am really happy with it.

I absolutely love this design just the way it is, but I'd be interested to see it placed a bit lower on the shirt!
$5 My friend would love this shirt for her birthday :D

I'm not a big fan of the yellow, but other than that, it's a fantastic work of art.

Looks like something out of a Norse myth. Great job.

Very nice, though the overly-distressed look bothers me some. It's too good a design to print it already worn out.

harryco79

WICKED DESIGN! Will so buy it.

nerdfinger

looks like a Greenman from myth. I like!

i can see this being a tattoo. good illustration.

If Threadless needed the distressing taken out to print it, I could do that.
