Gym parodies seem to be a trend and I couldn't resist doing more. I did a couple of these for a HFIL Gym design, with Goz and Mez variants. I really love doing stuff like this with Manga Studio, though I wish it had a stronger font engine or whatever... I usually find myself coming back to Photoshop or Illustrator when I have to do any aligning or font-based work.

There are a couple things here that I really dig a lot, such as the Snake Way ring that borders the "HFIL" scene in the middle; HFIL is depicted inside the ring/underneath Snake Way, like in the show. Also, what year would you even say a HFIL Gym was established??? I opted for the original air date for the American episode in which the infamous edit HFIL first appeared.

Anyways, I hope y'all dig it tho! I really love these two designs, it was definitely a nostalgic experience for me; something I wish I could take to my younger self back in the 90's when all the cool kids had the cool DBZ shirts from Hilo mall, lol! You can find the other variation of this design on my page! :)

As I said, this one was done almost entirely in Manga Studio (except for the font work and aligning) and again I use Brian Allen's brushes pretty exclusively. Not that others are bad, but I find Brian's to be super addicting and conducive to my style and workflow.
