really sweet design, i love the concept

MooseDinner

I think you should experiment with color combinations, including changing the birds and/or the dude.

nicolelindsay

I think you should have incorperated the birdcage in there.. What a wicked photo!
And I don't know... I kinda like it as a solid coloured silhouette. $5!

i am a music fan

i really like this $5

and may i just ask, whats with all the purple backgrounds on designs recently?

halo8

haha, I don't know. I just liked it as another dark tee/light design option. :P

joannchilada

I just LOVE this and I think it's great just the way it is

JAYGATZ

pretty cool... but does anyone else see frankenstein when they look at this?

styx021

i like the design... but all you did was trace the photo

styx021

oh, and bottom corner placement would be cool

steff2

I applaude you for stating the source of your design. But I have to say that your rendering is not nearly as strong. With it being a flat silhoette, the man looks like he's melting into the ground. Why not take your inspiration a step further and use color, more lines, and different types/styles of birds? Something like this would be really interesting if it were vultures attached to a little girl or swans attached to a giraffe. Try not to simply outline someone else's idea.

halo8

I know I just traced the photo, like I said I'm a fan. If ParkeHarrison sold shirts with his designs I would buy them all. :P

yeah, if he were really being lifted by the birds, his arms wouldn't be straight out--they'd be more of a v-shape--and his feet would be dangling, not flat on the ground. i like the idea but the design needs some tweaking.

OCEmu

Hummm... I really like the idea, but not so much on the execution. It doesn't look like he is being carried. The birds and the man don't fit together.

halo8

^well, he is not being carried, he is standing on the ground. maybe I should've added a horizon. I think this needed more work. oh well. XD

hairygrape

yay.
I like it.
a lotttttt.
$5

OCEmu

Ah. I thought you were trying to make it look as if he was being carried through the air. Work on it some more, it's a good concept.

Seaj

something like this happened in a hey arnold episode where this bird man was carried away by his birds which pulled him up by strings on his jacket.

EclecticListener

i love it.
bottom corner placement maybe?

Fairydust3654

placement is off, but i like the silhouette.

halo8 from Highfiber?

halo8

^yes, and you are? you made a survival guide blog entry. so, kerplunk? :P

ElektrikStarfish

I like it, but it almost looks like he's being weighed down instead of pulled up?

sugarkitten

Yes add a horizon, but keep the sihloette, usually I hate them and they take away from the satement that the artist is making but it works well with this one. $5

toeeey

the person seems a bit weird, but i like the idea.

spacesombrero

Pigeon Man from Hey Arnold..

cucharita

amazing! and finally a shirt on purple, it's been too long $5

facinorosa

$ 5 .. I love it

No account?
