After I decorated a couple of tshirts for my recent swap partner, I really wanted to make one for myself too, so I made this! If anyone reads the Discworld series of books they'll recognise it, for anyone else this is Great A'Tuin, the turtle who swims through space carrying the world on it's back   Roll Eyes

I used the design in my avatar but had to draw most of it freehand with tubes of paint...not the easiest things in the world to manipulate but I only had one major error, and I managed to cover it up  Smiley

Awesome! it looks great! and either you did an amazing job at covering up the mistake, or it wasn't so major, because I couldn't figure out where it might have been Cheesy

This is absolutely fantastic!  Not only the subject matter, but of course your perfect (or seemingly so, anyway!) painting too.  I want one! Cheesy

Thanks! I think the distance shot improves my painting skills, but I'm glad it's not jsut me who loves it  Smiley

This is so cool! Discworld is my favorite series EVER! So, I think it's fair to say that I love this shirt, and I possibly have a crush on you because of your love of the books. Wanna go out sometime?  Wink Just to show you my qualifications, here's my desktop:

I looovvveee this! My boyfriend just recently got me hooked on Terry Pratchett, I love it! I was thinking of screening him a Discworld shirt for Christmas or something, or just screening a quote from Terry Pratchett... Not sure, but you totally inspired me!!!

I love how you included Cors Celesti in the middle Smiley Anything Discworld is awesome sauce!

Osiris Cultist: Ohh. Fill the Jackal's head with OIL. Now it makes sense! At first I thought you said scalding hot 'voile'.
Osiris High Priest: What the hell is voile?
Osiris C.: It's a soft, sheer fabric. I warmed some up in the dryer.
Osiris HP: What kind of torture is that!?!
