The Gravedigger (T-shirt submission)


Author Comments

I have read and agree to the terms and conditions for this Tshirt design competition found at http://jazzastudios.com/ShirtDesignTerms

This is a submission for Draw with Jazza July challenge of the month!

For the theme of the T-shirt i thought of how in digital art, with a stylus you can create any effect, while in traditional art you need a lot of different supplies.

It presents a drawing tablet stylus as a gravedigger or Charon digging graves (in this case pencil sharpeners) for the traditional art supplies.

Though traditional art supplies have a value that can't be appreciated with a stylus, this theme is only to show how transition from traditional to digital occurs, and not to present some kind of preference between the two media (traditional and digital).

Honestly this is the type of piece that makes me wish I had spent more time working on my design, because this is excellent all around. The color palette is great, your idea is super clever and uses a lot of arty imagery, and the final product has a lot of character and life to it. Maybe this is a personal nitpick, but I'd like to see what it might look like with the outer lines a tad bolder, or at the very least an even width for all parts of the image— it can be a little thin in some areas, especially looking at the preview. However, I still think this is an excellent design, and I totally would get this is if is a contest winner. Very well done, I wish you the best of luck!
