I made this to submit as a tee-shirt design on Threadless.

It includes an edit of this early piece. I should have redrawn it from scratch instead, as the original is a very wonky iso. Laziness ends up costing time.

Colors are a little different from the Threadless submission, but this background is (probably) not available as a tee color.


Update: slightly more flashy colors.

this is mind numbing!

The people were a real awesome touch. :] 

With only 5 colors, this looks so cool. The background really highlights the subject of the piece.

 Wow, this would make an awesome Tshirt. Did it make it, or do you know yet?

=edit= I guess it hasn't been a week yet, nvm. Hope it scores well!

 Gostei das cores !

I remember old robot, but here you make great rework. Also new character is very nice. I like combination with BG colour and use him for shadow areas.

I love the guys, I was going to mention that before but didn't; they definitely make the design that little bit more awesome. Maybe you could balance out their locations a bit more though, especially the armpit one, that just seems like an awkward place for one of the runners. Anyway, they definitely give a sense of scale and it also helps give the impression that these robots are supposed to be menacing.

Thanks guys!

Kryptonite, cure: I've been and I am totally undecided about those guys! I wanted to have something to give scale and context, I don't think these fit so well, I don't know if there should be 1 or 2 or 3, what color, with or without shadow! I might edit again if I get a better idea.

 I LOVE THE PALETTE HERE SO MUCH.. okay but yea this is awesome! I would so wear a shirt with this design

cure (Level 11 Pixellite) @ 1/12/2011 13:59

no way, the lil dudes make the scene. nice work, dig the colors personally

SpaceSalmon (Level 1 Rookie) @ 1/12/2011 12:31

 This is great stuff. I want it as a shirt so I will give score. er..

Nice use of shapes, sizes and palette. I must say this is really good, but I do find the stickfigurines distracting and useless. If youd concider dumping the sticks, this would be a 6/6 work.

fawful (Level 6 Yonkyu) @ 1/12/2011 10:27

this is awesome

Manupix (Level 11 Godzilla) @ 1/12/2011 09:08

Thanks people! =)

ska: thanks for the edit! Lovely colors, but well I find them too bright! One thing is sure though, I didn't give colors enough attention on this piece, I just liked what I came up with at the start and didn't change it through the whole work. Also, when working for print you can't go too saturated as inks have limits. Only when I made the PJ final version did I make a quick change as the bg color didn't have to be that olive green; I didn't notice the dark greyish became too washy relatively.

Edited, a bit more flashy contrasted.

Btw, the version on Threadless doesn't show the right colors! This is a bad case of stupid browsers changing png colors, and stupid me thinking of it! I'll link a gif as soon as comments open.

 Marvelous colors , great use of hue changes to imply indiferent colorschemes.

Just wow :D

Mis-BUG (Level 9 Bio Mutant) @ 1/12/2011 00:50

Fantastic design! That would make a great t-shirt...

Imho you should consider something like the NES version proposed by skamocore... that would be great on a green or turquoise dress.

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 1/11/2011 23:35

Manu, you are a wonderful human being!

luisniel (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 1/11/2011 21:37

 Nice job. Favorite.

skamocore (Level 11 Dolphin) @ 1/11/2011 21:36

Nice design, but I can't help thinking that the colours don't look all that great. I assume you had your reasons for picking the colours, but I think they're a bit washed out and lack contrast; perhaps something more vibrant would work better. I decided to play around with some NES colours.
