[new improved] blue goblet T(s)




Here's a few ideas I came up with over the weekend, any takers?

Hopefully these will be available here soon. Plus, any feedback on the one (or ones) you like the best would help me.

I would have to say i like the hand grabbing the goblet throught the shaft of light the best, but that's just my preference. They all kick butt.

Cory said...

hey thanks~ the ones that generate more interest are the one that are a lot more likely to be actually made.

maybe they'll all be made. i don't know. i would like to see it.

There's already 4 or or 5 differnet Portland Studios tshirt designs ready to be made so i don't know how many of these will be able to be printed right now.

number two is my favorite too. it makes me want to read the story more than the others do.
i'm a big fan of your woodcut-looking pieces. keep up the good work!

i like number three. but number two is nice as well. i like them all. i like t shirts. since you can't get them all done, number two is my favorite. i want all of the portland studios tshirts.

ooooooooooooh I lke them ALL. But I think #2 works the best.

Well Cory not knowing what the story is really about, I too think the second one has more T-shirt appeal. It is dark and eerie and implies that the goblet is about to be stolen. The first one is just as dark and eerie, yet it looks like Julia is about to be eaten. The third one takes in all aspects of the title and is good work. The last one has the idea that Julia is on a journey searching for the "Blue Goblet." But as far as T-shirts go... #2. All are quality work.

Hmmm...my preference in this sequence: 1. The claw reaching for the goblet (for the mysterious feel, the suspense) 2. Dragon hovering julia. 3. Julia walking against the wind and 4. julia's image on the goblet itself.

i have changed my mind. upon further study i feel that number two reminds of the grinch who stole christmas, and it doesn't give me a blue gobletish vibe. i like number three the best. i'm not sure how it would work on a tshirt unless you had a bigger graphic for the front of the shirt, like number two, and then put graphic number three small, on the sleeve. i kind of like shirts like that. have you ever gotten a shirt from onetruth? i had one a while ago, and i can't find it. but it had the onetruth logo on the front and on the back, near where that bone that sticks out up by the shoulder, it said in a little rectangle "living for someone greater." it was really cool. because you didn't know when you bought the shirt it was on there, but when you got the shirt it was like a little surprise. so you could have a main graphic and then a little one elsewhere. but that might be too complicated. i'm not sure how that works. anyways, i like number three or four best for tshirts. i wish the font you made for the story could be on the shirt.

always love your dragons but i am leaning more towards the second one… the composition adds such an air of mystery… although nothing is said about julia… maybe the first or the forth would be my choice if i knew more… maybe i'm not much help… too tired… must sleep…

#2 is the one that grabbed me most at first, probably because it's simpler or more graphic or whatever, but the more I think about it the more it reminds me of a cross between Monsters Inc and The Emperor's New Groove.

My next favorite was #4 because of all the flowy lines.

#1 is cool because of the size contrast and the scariness factor.

#3 somehow didn't grab me as much as the others, but if the point is the goblet, then I think it communicates that better than the others.

Gloamer said...

wow. #2 is kick-everything awesome.

Ben said...

#2 is boss. The "grommet-dots" are stell.

This is inspireing stuff! I mostly like the second one (counting from the top) becouse it's clean. Lots of black and white and not so many lines. Makes me curious!
