More Tee Advice... and a T-shirt Portfolio


I got a comment that the guy in the robes was a witch, so I worked on his face. But just to clear things up, here is the list of Dark Lords on the shirt:

1. Sauron (Lord of the Rings)
2. Voldemort (Harry Potter)
3. Dracula
4. Ganon (The Legend of Zelda)
5. Emperor Palpatine (Star Wars)

Also here is the list of suggestions I got to add to the Dark Lords t-shirt:
1. Doctor Doom
2. Xenu
3. Lord Darken Rahl (from the TV show Legend of the Seeker)
4. Darkness (from the movie Legend played by Tim Curry)
5. Modok
6. Darth Vader
and finally
7. The Devil

I had to look up Xenu (thanks a ton Lee) but the others I all knew. As far as the shirt goes, I was trying to keep it to characters that called themselves or were known as dark lords in their stories.
About the suggestions, I'm not too keen on including any religious dark lords. Including them with fictional ones might be insulting to a believer. As for Darth Vader, I already have one lord of the Sith, so a second probably isn't needed. I'll think about the other ones, but I did get a suggestion that adding any more would crowd the design. Thanks to everyone for their help.

On a related but different note, here is a link to my t-shirt portfolio:

Some of the shirts are for sale at online sites, if you are interested in purchasing any of them, send me an email and I'll tell you where to get them.

That's a pretty sweet design! You could probably submit it as is. I always have random thoughts, so if it was my design, I would try implementing some blue into it, and less of the purple. The pink is ok, but blue could look really cool in some places, like the type, the electricity and other places. Also, I'm not a huge fan of the straight edges on either side of the text. What if those jagged edges on the bottom came up around the ends too? Then your whole design would look like it had more footing with a wider base on the bottom. That probably doesn't make sense. I think it will be awesome either way, but its fun to throw out my two cents anyways.

I would love to buy Gibson the KISS shirt or the robot shirt. And Stella the start shirt. How do I go about that?

Kasey, all of those shirts are ones that I haven't sold anywhere so I don't currently have a place to sell them. I'll look into it.

MIKE! What an awesome Idea! The only one I didnt know was the dude from zelda honestly. But the rest are icons hard to miss. :D As for the suggestions. Darkness would be cool, but I don't think he is as well known as the others. Although he is a good red balance for the group, and he did have a black outfit...with sparklies I think. Lol, I'll have to watch the movie again. Take care man. Later
