Breakthrough Eagle by wallace Breakthrough Eagle by wallace
Hi All:)

Another t-shirt design from me.
I wanted to depict the tension in the fabric due to the power of the eagle that is flying/crashing through the shirt.
Painted with my shiny new black quadcore comp:P
Wacom Graphire 4 tablet and PS.

Lots of references used

PLEASE view fullsize:D

Comments and crits are always welcome, thanks!

EDIT:

I have made two important changes:
1. The eagle’s head is much more upright
2. The tears that are wrapping around its left wing are more dynamic, as they look like they are about to snap

All the shredded fabric, the dramatic background/pose, the layout-this is such a great piece!

Whoooa this is really fantastic. o: I love the tension in the fabric, and the threads on the rips and shreds.
The feathers, too, are really well-done. Not too detailed, but rendered enough to like... blow my mind. Wow.

Yet another tattoo worthy piece. Just to let you know, when I say it would make a great tattoo. I mean it as the highest compliment. Art is lovely but tattoos are for life.

that's a really neat idea. You know what would make it funny? By putting like organs and or a ribcage behind the shreadings so it looks like the eagle popped out of the tee-shirt wearers body XDDDDDDDD

Unfortunately this is mainly for the kid's market and
I think it would be inappropriate:P

Will keep that idea in mind for horror shirts

Thanks!

Well I am a late starter as I have been a psychologisy for two years before I made the choice to be a 'digital' artist.

I think I got my first tablet hmmm four years ago so, I have been painting digitally for 4 years

Thanks again 'hugs'
