This is a shirt I was going to use for the Harry Potter movie release in November. Seeing as it's now set for NEXT August (I hate so many things about this), I wanted to go ahead and do something different with the shirt. So I dug up a sketch I had done, and ended up re-sketching it onto the shirt (the original sketch was like, 5x7, so it had to be resized) and then painting over it with fabric paint. It's the first time I've ever done this, so I'm kind of pleased with myself.



So you can see the arm going into my armpit. Heehee.  Tongue

Yay octopus. I think the drawing really suits the colour of the t-shirt.

Thanks everybody! It was a weird coloured shirt. I originally was going to put "Voldy's Gone Moldy" from Harry Potter on it.... hence the green colour... but when I changed my mind, I was like, what is going to look good on lime green?
I think it suits.  Grin
