this design is inspired by an ancient chinese belief about solar eclipse , they thought that the sun was swallowed by a dragon, and if you were wondering how the simple rough sketch of a dragon turned into a vector art suited for a tee design, go here and explore the process and tutorial i made just for you guys =D

Very cool drawing but I'd agree that it doesn't look that much like the sun. Also I don't think that colour tee does much for the design. Would like to see it on a red tee.

actually there are different styles of drawing the sun, i just wanted to have it like the one we see on encyclopedias or more likely on some other style where the sun looks like a fiery ball instead of the typical sun with rays, i hope that answers why i made the sun like that, i feel it fits the sketchy dragon too =D, keep the votes and comments coming guys! =D

Love this; loved the tutorial you put in Flickr; I also love the blue tee. I think the blue makes the dragon POP. $5

Very sweet illo! My only beef is with the line through the sketch version, but since that's minor compared to the sweet color version, you got my high vote!

I wouldn't have guessed this was a vector drawing and had to see the process to believe it. Nicely done!
