DRAGON by wallace DRAGON by wallace
The second design of my scheduled dragon 'trilogy'

The stone structure is the chinese character of the word 'dragon'
Of course, this being a chinese dragon I tried to make it colourful and radiant

This design will get printed on tee's

peinted with Photoshop and Wacom Graphire tablet

Thanks for viewing,
comments are welcome and appreciated:)

DRAGON by ~wallace is an impressive Chinese dragon design. Very cool how it coils between the sections of the Kanji. ( Featured by Aeires )

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?
Reply
:iconwallace:
wallace Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2009
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 distance..in 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

Thanks!
