Gooder than good.
That placement is golden. +1!
This is extremely interesting in that it poses an enormous challenge to my aesthetic philosophy.
Normally, I despise kitsch—by my definition, any unoriginal and uncreative display of technical expertise—which is exactly what this design by itself is.
However, I agree with others that there is just something remarkably awe-inspiring about the composition by virtue of the design’s placement: the neck-hole just integrates too beautifully with the design, almost as if it were a hat or crown resting casually on the tiger’s head, and there are other items of compositional interest besides! In addition, the grayscale color scheme with white used only minimally in the foreground makes the design appear terrifically vibrant against the medium-gray background!
But is that enough to justify voting for a design which, on its face [no pun intended], is clearly kitsch? Conversely, is the design’s status as kitsch enough to justify withholding a vote from it in light of how compelling it is on a shirt?
It will take me a day or so to decide. :]
infophilaic: you have an interesting way of viewing this!
I am pretty new to t-shirt designing, but I’ve been drawing since I was a kid. For now, most of what I submit for t-shirt contests are either scanned traditional drawings with some photoshop effects, or purely digital drawings (such as this), which are similar to what I would create with pencils on paper. I acquired photoshop not that long ago, so I have lots to learn. I have ideas for more interesting designs, but it will take me some time to be able to re-create them digitally.
Whether you decide to vote on this or not, I appreciate you taking the time to view and express your thoughts on my design :)
