Rock by theShad0w Rock by theShad0w
So this is the design I came up with for my geeky-but-still-cool t-shirt.

First of all, I only made shirts for myself and I won't be selling them in my shop on SpreadShirt.net, because I don't feel comfortable making profit off of other people's work.

I wanted it to be geeky yet still cool. Originally I wanted to go for a catchy phrase inspired by geek culture (referencing computers, sci-fi, or other 1337 stuff), but then I thought that it wouldn't be much of a design job, just type.

Then I thought : "hey, Roger, what is cool AND geeky ?". Well not many things are...but ROCK IS ! Well...it is geeky if you add a Guitar Hero controller (one of my favorite game franchises...EVER).

Of course, 90% of the pixels in this image were taken from pre-existing work (I didn't have a lot of time to finish the design, cause there was 25% off and free shipping only for a limited time).

Naturally, I have a LOT of people to thank, and here it goes :

*gomedia for his awesome vector resources,
~WhirlwindZOR for his crazy vector splatters,
~LukeAvery for the neat dripping cloud circles,
~namespace for the great vector swirls and swishes,
and finally `smashmethod and ~corelila for their splatter brushes.

I'm sorry if i forgot to mention someone, I just downloaded so many brush sets and vector packs to find the perfect ones for me. In the end, I couldn't really remember which I used.

Maybe I'll upload a photo of myself with the shirt when I get it !

UPDATE : Here is a wallpaper using this design [link]

UPDATE2 : I created a new version of this design, entirely in Illustrator this time. Check it out here -> [link]
