Threadless recently had a TMNT themed design contest that allowed artists to use ANY characters from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I've had TMNT villains on the brain lately so the timing was perfect. I went with Rocksteady and Bebop.
Threadless is pretty cool operation if you're an artist looking for some feedback. See what resonates with people in your work. The community is encouraged to score and leave comments on all the designs and since it's a contest, you can get some instant feedback from the masses. Even if it's just a one-word exclamation ("Neat!") it's still pretty cool. And I gotta say - a lot of memories have come flooding back just looking at all the submissions. Some of the obscure characters and references crack me up! Mondo Gecko never thought he'd be on a shirt! I wish I thought up something for Krang! Or the original NES game!
Anyway, I have these two Rocksteady and Bebop designs up for scoring for the next 5 days or so. If ya like 'em, login and vote! :)
Also, I gotta post some development/process pics. Maybe some other Threadless folks would dig this :)
Til next time!
