That's an Epic dragon! =D And it's very cool how you had the Kanji pop-out like that while having the Dragon twist around and surround it. =)

I thought the Kanji symbol was such a nice touch. And Chinese dragons are always cool. :] That'd be a pretty cool t-shirt.

I got your artwork on a tee! :D

I was wondering, is there any real hard limits to getting artwork to a company that will make them into T-Shirts?
wallace's avatar
Cool :D

to answer your question: it is a bit harder than other kinds of companies.
Most t-shirt companies are looking for very specific artworks and/or artworks that already have proven commercial success

I can recommend you to submit artworks to RPG Publishers,, the door is more open to new artists so to speak;)

good luck!

have you ever tryed different ideas about dragons?
Like how chineze dragon suposedly gave a man a scroll, and taught him knowledge? Or dragon that do other things, like breathe and live in water? Im just saying, i see alot of repititive ideas. Dont get me wrong, im a complete fan of your work!

Thanks for your feedback really appreciated:)

Yes I see what you mean and I agree.
I want to say that what you are referring to are 'storytelling' artworks.
For t-shirts unfortunately these kind of images work less effective,
it must be eye-catching and relatively simple composition wise as
t-shirts are glanced at from pretty much all the cases.

I hope I can do the kind of artworks (again) that is more compelling storywise,
in fact I'm doing a couple right now on and off, but it's between projects
so it takes more time

LunarBorealis's avatar
hmm, never thought of it that way. Well good luck with th projects and everything!
