Modern Pygmalion

This shirt is based off of the Greek myth of Pygmalion. Pygmalion was a sculptor who sculpted a woman so beautiful, he fell in love with his sculpture. Aphrodite took pity on the artist and turned his work of art into a real woman. They lived happily ever after, etc etc.



As an artist, this has always been one of my favorite Greek myths, so I decided to try it out as a shirt. I think all artists wish they could just create that perfect somebody with their pencil (or tablet stylus, or whatever). If blue isn\'t your thing, the hue could be changed very easily since it\'s all monochromatic, but I personally prefer this in blue.

I'd want the text on this just 'cause we did a musical that had Pygmalion in it, and it was the best scene ever.

veggieheadgeek

the cat kind of ruins it for me...great concept though.

Wilde Nut

I can picture me in this shirt
"Hey , Do you draw girls you want to kiss, just like the shirt you have on?"

"Yeah, but It's not just Kissing"

That is completely adorable - I love everything about it, the sweep of his hair, the cat, the blue colours. Please print!

Great design and concept.......but this SO needs some colors to really bring out the emotion of the subject, at least the painting beying a vibrant color that comes alive in the artist's drab little world. Or maybe a different color. I want to buy this....so do something! Great job tho. 4.

famous literary refrences always get a five and by from me

It's nice, but something about the squiggly textures on her dress/hair looks a bit odd to me. I realise it's probably meant to look 'painterly' but distracts a little. Good concept though.

Torn Jeans

nice, but can use with more vibrant color. gd job

realslimnatey

this is most definitely a beautiful design!

Xaverie

Yes! Pygmalion & Galatea is one of my favorite myths!

Xaverie

And I kinda disagree about the sketchy texture on the dress and hair. I really like it and I think the design needs it to show the transition from painting to life, other wise it would just look like a woman popping through a window or something.

I don't think it works for a tee! Nice illustration tho'

nice illustration and colors. I like the painterly effect of the girl.

MeLa de Gypsie

hmmm... it's not really my type of design.. I see it more as a cartoon than something that would go on a tee...

NerdyArtist

Love it. Absolutely love it!

$5!

Joyproject

Great idea & nice style of illustration...BUT, the style feels more spot ad in Cosmo instead of unisex t-shirt.

pepa78

jar_bombadillo

Wow! It's super-original... which means you deserve a 5!

pixel_dust

Theatre, Mythology, and art? Man I want this.

beautiful concept, but I think you have too many details in your art. It would be much more stricking if it were more simply drawn and perhaps a little less cartoonie.

Jooliesays

Love the cat's face.

wow, that's cool. i really like how the bottom of the woman in the painting looks like it was painted, but as she comes out of the painting, she becomes more cartoon-like. i think it's just a bit too big on the shirt, but this is really cool :D i like the style, too.

whootie

aww!

it's awesome. $5

This is quite nice, I must say, though I don't think my girl would appreciate me wearing this.

gtrachel

Every time I see another design with a beautiful woman's face, I think about the stupid myth of Pygmalion. I wish people would get over it. Not only can you not date women you draw yourself, you also can't date women on tee-shirts.

mahatma_blondie

I like the idea, but I am thinking that a modern pygmalion would better be represented by a gamer and an anime chick he created
