Mythical Creatures T-Shirt Design Challenge by DominiqueDuong Mythical Creatures T-Shirt Design Challenge by DominiqueDuong
My second entry for the Mythical Creatures Design Challenge! [link]

This gal is a baobhan sith from Scottish mythology and folklore, a beautiful seductress that preys on young travellers at night to suck their blood like a vampire. They can take on the form of a crow or raven, but usually appear as a beautiful woman to lure in their victims. With this design, I wanted to make it seem as if she was caught in mid-metamorphosis, halfway between bird and woman.

Voting for the semi-finalists starts next Wednesday on July 25th so make sure to vote for me, guys!

EDIT: Whoops, uploaded the wrong file. SORRY, GUYS.

EDIT 2: Got rid of the white-box border.

Was this paint with ink? O.o Nicely done! I'm wondering where her other arma gone. Can't find it anywhere. But still very good drawing :) Good luck!

Nope, just black gel pen. Thank you! Lol, her other arm ain't there. It's sorta still metamorphed into that wing.

Good luck to you, too! Holy cow, you've done so many XD All your entries look awesome. The faun one is my favourite, though. I love nature and warm colours, and on that black t-shirt, it's a really eye-catching image. I really like how you incorporate the DA logo into such a natural image on the back as well.

Whoops, accidentally unfaved and refaved. >_>;

I sure wouldn't want to come across one of these things in the dead of night. Does she only have one arm, or has the other arm already morphed into a wing? Or am I blind? lol.

Don't worry about it XD Haha, me neither. Yeah, her other arm's still a bird's wing, sort of.

The picture is awesome, however as a shirt it doesn't work, a white box on the shirt takes away from what you created. I would vote for the pictures but not the shirt, just based on that. If you're going to put it on a black shirt what I'd suggest is just outlining your work in black, or possibly fading out the box's edges. Or even better stretch out the edges so they look like they're a part of your work.

Yeah, I get what you mean. Unfortunately, there's no white t-shirt template, and I've only got Paint to work with, but I like your idea for a white border - thanks! That's a good idea. Even in Paint I can do that, so I tried it out and got rid of the white box. Don't worry, I know what you meant XD

I meant outlining the design with white (black would kinda defeat the purpose xD)

However, it'd probably be better on a white shirt. or on the black shirt with inverted colours.

Yeah, it would, but they didn't have a white t-shirt template, and we can't change the colours of the templates they provide us with.
