Siren Tee Design By Tim Shumate

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.

Mashup Tee Design by Vintz

Mashup Tee Design Review.

The mashup tee design is for Star Wars and Indiana Jones fans. This design works Stars Wars into Raiders of the Lost Ark.

First off, awesome concept. The mashing up of the two franchises has been done many times like the Starcheology for example. But this is one of the best takes and better mash ups out there and is definitely worthy of the name. The archaeologist is about to snatch an ancient golden android head which is the focal point of the design. Got that, C3PO is the star. Second, that's the laziest title for a mash up tshirt that I've ever come a across. There are countless "mashups" of characters and whatnot out there. It is a genius move though for people typing "mashup tee" and other variations will probably find this one first. So is it "genius" or "laziness" on Vintz's part? The art would suggest "genius".

The Mashup tee is a very well executed design that breaks all the rules. Unlike the actual scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark (shown above), Dr. Jones is reaching out from the shadows. Instead of basking in the glow of the priceless artifact. Which happens to the head of the droid C3PO instead of a golden idol. Having him enter from the shadows is smart as it is effective. It requires less work with the character being implied. It also avoids any copyright infringement by not showing the face. The design looks really nice as a t-shirt by keeping it simplified. While the highlights are added for emphasis, they are actually in the wrong place for the light source to be from C3PO's head. But that was an artist's call to solve the problem of making the character stand out better. It may be wrong but it still looks good. The coloring couldn't be better.

The Mashup design is perfect for wearing to screenings of Star Wars, Indiana Jones, Comic cons and so on and so forth.

Future Wars Tee Design by DCVisualArts

Future Wars Tee Design Review.

The Future Wars tee design is for the Futurama and Star Wars fans.

This is a good mash up as it combines two hit sci-fi shows. In this, 4 of the Futurama characters are spoofing the Star Wars episode 4: A New Hope movie poster (shown below). Philip J. Fry is holding up a lightsaber as he replaces Luke. Turanga Leela, holding her ray gun, instead of Princess Leia Organa posing with her a blaster. Bender is drawn up to look like Darth Vader and is the giant face in space instead of Darth Vader himself. Instead of R2D2 and C3PO in the background there is Zoidberg as Droidberg C3PO and I'm not sure who or what is replacing R2D2. Bessie (The Planet Express Ship) and NNY traffic replaces the tie fighters. The location based on the background and said traffic is New New York.

Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope Poster

As for the artwork, it is a nice homage to both Star Wars and Futurama. The colors good and retro like the original poster only cartoonish. There is minimal shading which is okay for the style.

This Future Wars tee will make a nice gift for the Futurama fans and some Star Wars fans would appreciate it as well.

Children are in luck because this comes in kid sizes too.

Forever Young Tee Design by Nasken

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.

A Very Long Time Ago Tee Design by Vintz.

A Very Long Time Ago Tee Design Review.

The A Very Long Time Ago tee design is for Star Wars and Gremlins fans.

This concept is effing hilarious and clever. If you have ever wondered what the love child of Yoda and an Ewok would look like, this is it. Whether you wanted to think about that or not. But that is not the funniest or even most disturbing part. Check out how creepy Yoda looks with his bulging eyes and old man pipe. It's like viewing one of those post-mortem photos. Add all of those elements together and behold, one of the greatest pop culture tees of all time. If this tee looks familiar, it is because the design used to be sold at Threadless... (Also) a long time ago.

As for the artwork, it is drawn in a cartoon style that is made up to look like an old early photograph from the Victorian Era. Think Conté Crayons on cardboard. The shading and highlights are superb. The facial expressions are on par with damn near all the old time portraits. Probably because people had to be still for a long time for the photographic plates to be exposed. At first, it took roughly 15 minutes. Then just a couple years later it was down to a couple of minutes. Which is still a long time to have to strike a pose. That and people back then were ashamed of their teeth due to the lack of dental care and hygiene. Either way, Vintz nailed it.

This tee is for any Star Wars and Gremlins fans or at least of the cute Mogwai form.

Wear this tee everywhere that tees are appropriate. It would make a great conversation starter at Comic-Cons and Sci-Fi conventions.

Sword Of The Master Tee Design by TeeKetch

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.

Busted Ghost Tee Design by Naolito.

Busted Ghost Tee Design Review.

The Busted Ghost tee design is for the Pac-Man and Ghostbusters fans.

The concept is far from original as there have been various Ghostbusters and Pac-Man mash ups and parodies. This one uses the ghost trap as a coffin. Speedy aka "Pinky" is the ghost in the coffin but the character is shown as a dark blue. This is because when Pac-Man eats a power pellet the ghost turn blue then they can be chomped. However, once chomped they no longer have their "sheet" or color as they just roam around as floating eyes. This was done this way because eyes only would look weird in a coffin. The best part of this design though and by far the funniest thing about it is how Shadow aka "Blinky" stares at the coffin like he knows something is not quite right.

As for the artwork, it is a decent illustration but it isn't perfect. For starters, where is the other lid flap and hinges for the coffin? At first glance people might not notice that it is missing. Some may never notice. Second, the shading is great except the lighting on the ghost in the trap is different. It is just a cartoon type design so it really doesn't matter so much but I notice it. IT was done that way to show the contour of Pinky because that is the only visible side. Illustrators often break the rules of physics to force a perspective. It does however look good, it has great coloring. The layout is perfect. the middle ghost Pokey aka "Clyde" is raised a little in order to have him stand behind the others so they aren't in a perfect straight line. Making it look more natural and overall better than lined up like ducks in a row. Each ghost also has their own facial expression.

This Busted Ghost tee will make a good gift for Pac-Man or Ghostbusters fans. Basically anyone that was around in or at least born in the 80's will appreciate it.

There are no Kids' tees for this design from this retailer so it gets docked for that.

Wear this tee anywhere and everywhere that tshirts are socially acceptable.

Episode 4 A New Formula Tee Design by Ninjaink

Episode 4 A New Formula Tee Design Review.

The Episode 4 A New Formula tee design is for the Breaking Bad and Star Wars fans.

The concept is more of a parody than it is a mash up. Luckily, because it would just be outright stupid to combine the two as a mashup. Seems like anything and everything is mashed together at some point. With this, 5 of the Breaking Bad characters are spoofing the Star Wars episode 4: A New Hope movie poster (shown below). Walter White is holding up a beaker of his famous blue sky meth instead of Luke Skywalker holding up a lightsaber. Skyler White, holding a cigarette sits at his feet, instead of Princess Leia Organa standing while holding a blaster. Gustavo Fring is the shadowy face in space instead of Darth Vader's trademarked helmet. Instead of R2D2 and C3PO in the background there is Saul Goodman and Jesse Pinkman. An explosion of a 747's replaces the tie fighters as the pink teddy bear free falls from the midair collision. The location is pretty much the same in both scenes a desert landscape give or take a few details depending on the franchise.

Star Wars Episode 4: A New Hope Poster

As for the artwork, it is damn good. Almost perfect in fact. Saul Goodman's face has a shadow on the opposite side than everyone else's and that is the only thing wrong with it. To be fair, he is trying to match C3PO's lighting rather than focus on his own creation. I'm not taking away a point for that as I am the only one that would notice or get annoyed by it. FIX IT NINJAINK! The textures in this piece are outstanding. As are the colors. The fact that everything stays true to Breaking Bad is again, a smart move. This is one of the best jobs for capturing the characters' likenesses as Ninajink is not afraid to add any details.

This Episode 4 A New Formula tee will make a nice gift for the Breaking Bad fans. Even some Star Wars fans would appreciate it.

I Want To Believe Tee Design by Cubik and ZombieMedia

I Want To Believe Tee Design Review.

The I Want To Believe tee design is for Sci-Fi fans that enjoy Back To The Future and the X-Files.

The concept of this design is based on the Back To The Future Hoverboard and the poster "I Want To Believe" that could be seen in "Spooky" Fox Mulder's F.B.I. office. It is also the title of the second feature film installment of the X-Files franchise. An actual hoverboard has been the dream of almost everyone that has seen the Back To The Future II and III movies not just the fanboys. WE ALL WANT TO BELIEVE. So much so that two variations of the hoverboard have been made this year to match the deadline in the movie... the Hendo Board and the Lexus Hoverboard. Though neither are as tweaked out or perfected as the one in the movies.

As for the artwork, there is a good full colored illustration of the fictional Mattel Hoverboard in the foreground with a silhouetted Hill Valley Courthouse in the background. Awesome coloring and contrast. Personally I think it is a little weird to see just a hoverboard without a pair of legs attached to it, but that is just me.

The 80's children would probably love this tee as the Back to The Future movies are iconic.

This is a good BTTF tribute tee as this is the year (2015) that the Marty McFly character traveled to in the in the Back To The Future II movie.

Hear Me Roar Tee Design by Alberto Arni.

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.
