Every time I see this, I think of manga, because every time there's a panal of some scene with the main character, the main character will be shown in as a close up for more effect (if you know what I'm talking about), because not only does it show Gengar with words proving to be a pic for his teeth adding detail, but it also makes it creepier than usual adding twice the effect, which is perfect, since Gengar is a ghost/poison type pocket monster I like how the T-shirts are shown at the bottom, since (in a way) it helps persuade people to buy it as a print, which is quite clever, a technique that is quite useful/convenient in many ways. I especially like how the colors come in purple, since that's the color of Gengar, and in black, because of more effect added. (Sorry, I'm a little bad at critiqing, so if the manga didn't make any since, then sorry about that...) Scale of 1-10, I give it ten and a half for epicness
I am absolutely sure Pokemon fans have immediately recognized this at first glance. Every Pokemon fan knows about the creepy unsettling Gengar, and you did a wonderful job of showing it in this extremely simple design.
The subtle change between the two eyes makes a whole difference than if they were identical. What's more, its silhouette is very well done and with a few zigzags, you managed to capture Gengar's outline perfectly. But what's the most important part of this piece is its teeth. Usually, Gengar has this huge grin that can only be rivaled by Electrode's. You replaced the teeth by the word 'nightmare', which has to be the smartest concept I have ever seen, even though it is quite simple.
Even for those who have NO IDEA about the existence of this ghost Pokemon, they'll immediately associate this with a random nightmarish creature grinning at them.
All in all, this is a quite straightforward design (the line for the outline, the two eyes and its grin), but it is extremely clever. Even if this didn't have a DD, I would definitely be buying it. Great job and I wish good success on your future designs!
Sweeeeet! This totally deserves a DD! I love it! I'd consider buying it, but then one of the reviews drew my attention to a very unpleasant fact. The eyes are asymmetrical. I love the shirt design! But I can't stand asymmetry in my fashion xP
I let my Gengar keep Hypnosis and gave it Nightmare and Dream Eater! So this is awesome to me. And I had to keep a Haunter also, because my Gengar couldn't fight without putting targets to sleep, really, so Haunter had the attack moves.
No wait! It was the other way around! It was a long time since I played POKeMON Red and Silver OTL
Dream Eater is wasted on Gengar - He has a super devastating Special Attack.
My Gengar goes in for the Kill and splits when need be:
Shadow Ball (devastating, even when hitting for neutral damage, it will dent a lot of foes) Focus Blast (iffy acuracy, but still worth the risk, for the normals that would otherwise take advantage) Pain Split (to be used wisely) Last slot can be up to you, Hypnosis is probably best, but substitute also works, and you could even use explosion for when Gengar is on his last legs
But forget Dream eater - use him for what he does best; a killer special attacker!
Yeah, I had my memory the other way around like I remembered at the last second before I sent the comment! I don't think Focus Blast or Pain Split existed in generation 2, but I know I gave my Gengar Shadow Ball. I think I kept Hypnosis, gave it Psychic and Confuse Ray. And then I had the Haunter as backup with Hypnosis, Dream Eater, Nightmare and Confuse Ray. I think that was it! I had to have Haunter with those moves just because they moves+the pokemon combination was just too cool to me.
If I really needed to find out, I still have my old Game Boy Advance right next to me, but I don't know for sure where the games for it are, other than the game inside it now (Final Fantasy Tactics Advance FTW). I just know for a fact the game's still in the house. Don't know for a fact if it still works...
That grin IS notorious! In a really cool way! It's Gengar's trademark, and that's why it's on this shirt like this! Still, despite Haunter such an awesome feature, put the name and the look together and Haunter is the most kool looking ghost I've ever seen in a video game. I think.
