The Dark Knight Rises T Shirt winners

The winners for the Dark Knight T Shirts are here. Some of the best drawings and digital renderings Design By Humans has ever seen. From Bane's angry face, to the stealth actions of Batman; each new Dark Knight Rises shirt has story of their own.

The Rising Shadow introduces a large portrait of Bane with Batman running toward the foreground. The ink and brush stokes give this tee energy and texture.

The Bane Shirt, by Mr. Nicolo is known for his intense shirts like Sasquatch and Dino Frenzy. He captures Bane building intensity in his hands, with a brilliant use of blues, accented by orange eyes and energy. The sure grip of Bane comes alive in this T Shirt.

When the bat signal is called the Dark Knight Arises. This Dark Knight Shirt is a sure portrayal of Batman, Gotham and the bat signal.

Once the signal is called the Dark Knight will Come From the Dark. Batman drops to the ground with a storm, accented with the cape flowing from above. This symmetrical balance frames the leading lines so you stare right into Batman's dominance.

The final fight between Batman and Bane under the depths of the bat signal put this design at the top of Christopher Nolan's list. Hello, Mr. Wayne features many fantastic design elements. This tee captures contrast, shadows and highlights to create an intense fight scene. Action, leading lines, and brilliant contrast make a t shirt worth a thousand words.

All 5 Dark Knight Rises tees are for sale for a limited time. You can purchase a piece of the Dark Knight legacy or for the big time fans you can collect the entire series at a discount. The designs are printed on soft cotton shirts for comfort and quality. The movie releases July 20th, but the shirt are available now. Thanks for all the submitted, voted and purchased shirts.

With limited print runs, get your order in as soon as you can.

This contest is more of a social popularity contest than an actual ART competition. The ten highest voted on are mediocre compared to some of the incredible design work submitted. I am shocked to see some great work ignored.
