Giant Robots Leave Me Somewhat Apprehensive

This is my homage to Japanese comics and floppy rubber monster movies from the 70s and 80s.



The kanji says "fear", but the idea is more important to the design than what it says. The people are frightened by something we can't see.



The shirt color options are meant to represent the paper colors that one color pulp mangas were printed on back in the good ol' days.

I really like the intentional mis-registration. Great illo. I like it best on Sagestone. 4$.

ekaj47

i actually like it on the pink the most

gradinDotCom

What action! Well played.

Arco

Awesome job. I agree with bies about the intentional mis-registration. I'm wondering if it might be even better if you removed the kid with the fishing hat and let the white lines breath a bit?

High-five!

Arclight17

Niiiice.
My favorite on turquoise, but sagestone is good too.
Excellent work

CheesecakeBree

Very cool! Ryan reviewed this at Loves Threadless, by the way. I'm scoring the same with a 4$... great concept.

Seamus McClernan

It's ALL good.





That said, I'd prefer a gold one because it looks like aged, yellowed newsprint.

Hey this is super, pope!

rsegrest

This is funny and cool. I would wear this. $5. I wonder if there shouldn't be a small element eluding to the robot, though? Just a thought-- maybe a subtle reflection in a glass window?

stardance

Nice color on the blue.

Sagestone is best. Great design - I like it but I reckon the main guy looks more excited than scared!

Ruefulstar

I like it on gold

potatoesrus

i like all the color options (except pink, cause i don't really like pink, though the design looks real good on all), and i really think you did a great job, artistically and representationally.

cheese_baguette

this is cool, I like :) I think I prefer the pink.

Julie_Pooly

Dandy design :)
its bomb diggity on the pink

Ryuk

Awesome job.

$5.

Odelay

I'd wear this but I'm afraid my manga obsessed friends would try to steal it from me.
I like it on the turquoise, $5.

Sinareo

I don't know how I feel about wearing manga on myself.

I guess I'll get over it. Great design and concept. I think after reading your explaination, I was sold. Best on gold or turquoise, IMO. $5 and a buy.

podium_06

very nice but i would like to see it bigger in the middle. much much bigger.
as it is 5. if it was centered and bigger 5$.

dustyknapp

Fantastic artwork and colors. As mentioned above... centered and bigger = $5 :)

nadira

aqua blue for me on this one...i'm sooo not a fan of anime style shirts, but this one can be made 1,000 exceptions for.

BeckRokk

$5'd for gold color.

bantrybay

great illustration, I would buy this.

corey8

nice!

Lancasaurus

Lovin' the classic pink and sagestone. 5'd for both.

PacificLight

Sagestone is perfect, off-center is perfect. Hats off to you, Popey.
