The Ariel The Little Mermaid shirt design is for the Disney fans, especially the adults that dig the quirky Redhead.
Conceptually, this is simply to make Ariel from the 1989 Animated movie The Little Mermaid, a more realistic Pin-Up Girl. This isn't a new and original concept as there are many like it out there in the world. Especially of the low-brow variety sporting Ariel with tattoos. This one does not. The artist focuses on showing that Ariel can be sexy as well as cute. While this may tarnish some people's cherished views of the Disney princess, others see it as symbol of empowerment for women, both animated and real. The thing to keep in mind is that it is still art and art is always subjective.
As for the artwork, it is done remarkably well. First, please consider the shading. It is worthy of a tattoo as it is steps beyond that of a flat cartoon. Second, you will notice that the coloring is bold and that it stays true to character. Third, the layout of Ariel's pose rather captures her elegance and it is done rather tastefully. However, the only nitpick that I have about this design is that the White outline. It just isn't needed and it looks wrong in some places. Such as between the sweeps of her hair. Other than that this design is a solid 5 out of 5 stars.
This Ariel The Little Mermaid Shirt will make a nice gift for the pin-up girl enthusiasts and the Disney Princess buffs. Plus, it is available in kid sizes which isn't a bad thing since Ariel isn't revealing too much of herself.
As for the print, this is one of better and best examples of a TeePublic shirt and therefore it gets a 5 out of 5 stars. It may not be 100% true to the design thumbnail's tones but it bold and it does include every detail.
Overall, it makes a good casual shirt that fits in anywhere such as Coffee shops or Comic-Cons.

The Beer King Tee Design Review.
The Beer King tee design is for Futurama fans and those that have fond memories of The Lion King.
For the concept, The Beer King tee design parodies Disney's most famous Lion King scene by having Bender from Futurama holding up a bottle of beer as if it was the new born king. There is no real originality as Firebeard does not own the rights to either Futurama or The Lion King. Bender is like a straight ripped copy with no edits or alterations as a true parody would have to avoid copyright infringement. Bender is simply Bender. Not that I really care, I am just commenting on the originality and creativity aspects. But the mashing up of the two franchises is cool and make for a funny concept.
As for the artwork, the coloring is good with some tricky shading that could fool the eyes into thinking that it is wrong. It isn't perfect but I wouldn't go as far as to call it "wrong". The only area that really needs fixed is Bender's left arm. As for the glass beer mug, there is a concave on the bottom of the beer mug that is why it has shading there as there is a side to a ridge. Plus the background shows through the mug as it is drawn as transparent.
This is one of many Lion King parodies and ranks up there with some of the best.
I'm not much of a Disney fan but I enjoy the Hell out of Futurama. This design is funny and suitable as a Futurama tee as any Earthican would agree..

Princess Tattooed Ariel Tee Design Review.
The Princess Tattooed Ariel tee design is for the Disney Princesses and fans of Ariel from The Little Mermaid that have a bit of a rebellious wild side.
The concept is good though not unique. The low brow inked up Disney princesses definitely have a market. Turning the pristine princesses into Gothic and punk bad asses is trendy but expected. Like the Siren tee design this will be a crowd pleaser as sexy pin-ups never go out of style.
As for the artwork, the colors are good for Ariel though not at all like the actual cartoon. There is like next to no shading on this but shadows aren't really needed given the type of design and the art style. The colors will be printed just as they appear because Neatoshop is awesome like that. The flowers are added as an extra but unnecessary design element. Mostly to add some more color to the piece. But the focus of this tee is Ariel's ink and makeup. Featuring Nautical, Tribal, Celestial and Sugar Skull tattoos.
This Princess Tattooed Ariel tee will make a nice gift for the teenage and older Disney fans.

Siren Tee Design Review.
The Siren tee design is for Disney Princesses and fans of Ariel from The Little Mermaid.
The concept is good and low brow definitely has its market. Transforming the Disney Princess into bad asses with varying amounts of punk attitude meets sultry is on the rage now-a-days. Tattoo style pin-ups will always be popular.
As for the artwork, the colors are appropriate for Ariel. It has adequate shading with lots of details. The way that Ariel and the top fish extend out of the oval frame to add a bit of the 3rd dimension is a nice touch. This is more interesting than having everything in a frame looking flat. It is one of those things that distinguishes an a amateur from a professional artist. The Reds on this tee printed closer to my expectations than the Quinn of Diamonds P.O.D. tee (Which wasn't bad at all, just the red didn't match what was on the screen) so it scores slightly higher for the printing method. Making it a 5 out of 5.
This Siren tee will make a nice gift for girls that don't want to conform to other people's expectations.
This design is available on kids' tees too.
Siren Tee Design by Tim Shumate.Is available on T-shirts. Navy, Turquoise and Mint are the only fabric color options and they are good choices as they are aquatic colors which match the theme of the design. The review breakdown is as follows:
Forever Young Tee Design Review.
The Forever Young tee design is a mash up that comes to everyone's mind at some point or other Link and Navi with Peter Pan and Tinkerbell.
The concept is okay. Link and Navi are solid with their shadows taking the shape of Peter Pan and Tinkerbell. I'm not sure if anything else is being implied or not. Surely no one thinks there is any copyright infringement of any kind by Nintendo. Both sets of characters have many similarities. Link and Peter Pan are both heroes and are roughly the same ages most of the time (kids). They both wear green clothing and have their weapons of choice. Navi and Tinkerbell are both fairies that follow their boy in green around everywhere.
As for the artwork, it isn't bad. It has appropriate colors and moderate shading. The stance is a bit off for the shadow to be properly aligned so it is forced for the sake of the concept.
This is a good "green tights club" Zelda themed tee that kids of all ages should love.
This casual shirt is good for getting double takes.

Sword of the Master Tee Design Review.
The Sword of The Master tee design is for the people that like the stories of young heroes and adventure. Especially, if they happen to be a young King Arthur or Link. Which this tee is based on both.
The concept is good and the style is on par with The Sword In The Stone cartoon. Both have a Sword in the stone (or anvil) in their storylines.
As for the artwork, the colors is good and the shading is minimal. The textures of the anvil, gateway and ground are done with simple splotches. It looks like old VHS cover art. The art and text are done in the Sword In The Stone drawing style.
This Sword of the Master tee will make a nice gift for the fantasy and RPG lovers. The ones that are Legend of Zelda fanatics and those who love The Once and Future King or The Sword In The Stone will wear this Sword of the Master tee like it was their skin.
This is a good casual shirt that fits in anywhere such as Comic-Con or while gaming.

Hear Me Roar Tee Design Review.
THIS DESIGN IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE FROM THIS RETAILER.
The Hear Me Roar tee design is for Game of Thrones fans and those that have fond memories of The Lion King.
For the concept, The Hear Me Roar tee design corrupts the Game of Thrones world with the evilness of Disney's The Lion King. But it looks damn good. The Lion is the sigil for the House of Lannister and putting Tyrion on a cliff with two other famous lions is a fun idea. It has the right balance of cute and funny as well as all the needed references to make a good mashup or parody.
As for the artwork, the shading, lighting and coloring are all fantastic. It looks like a still from a large production Disney animated movie. It has loads of stunning detail and effects. Especially with the use of the simulated sunlight. It looks really good on a red tee.
As a result, this is one of the best parody tees.
This is an fun Game of Thrones shirt that is bound to bring laughs to many fans.
Writing as someone that is not a fan of The Lion King or of Disney in general, the Game of Thrones fans would still like this tee. But die hard Disney fans would only like this if they like Game of Thrones.

A New King Tee Design Review.
The A New King tee design is for the people that like the tales and movies about heroic princes. Especially, if they happen to be a young King Arthur or Luke Skywalker. Which this tee is based on both.
The concept is great and the style is on par with The Sword In The Stone cartoon.
As for the artwork, the colors and shading couldn't be any better even if Disney had done this themselves. It looks great on any color of fabric, especially on the Black shirt. Alberto added the detail of the two suns of Tattooine into the background which is a nice touch. Sand completely covers the stone in which the Lightsaber is placed again showing that young Luke is in Tattooine. The mash up is done 50/50 and is executed beautifully.
This A New King tee will make a nice gift for the fantasy and sci-fi lovers. The ones that are Star Wars fanatics and that love The Once and Future King or The Sword In The Stone will wear this A New King tee to their graves.
This is a good casual shirt that fits in anywhere such as Comic-Con or to the movies.

Just Food Tee Design Review.
The Just Food tee design is for the people who love parodies but hate Disney, especially Tinkerbell.
I have nothing against Tinkerbell but this tee is hilarious. Both characters were probably minding their own business and Tink just happened to fly by in the wrong place at the wrong time. A praying mantis has to eat. As the title states it's "Just Food". Don't judge the poor evil and sadistic bastard. You can feel sorry for Tinkerbell though.
This is what a parody is supposed to be. That is that well known characters that find themselves in situations that they wouldn't find themselves in normally with their faces hidden by some clever method. That way to avoid copyright law violations.
As for the artwork, it is clean with minimal shading. It's not really needed. The concept is great as it adds a little reality to the fantasy world.
This Just Food design has attitude and that is something missing from a lot of the new tee designs lately.
This is a good Tinkerbell themed tee though her fans may not appreciate it much and it probably wouldn't be good as a kids' design. Unless it is for the people with a sadistic non conformists view of the world.
