Wounded Warrior Project – Charity

Hi!

So, I don’t know if a lot of people know what I do for a living, but I work for the Military Medical System. I’m an overrated paper-pusher really 😉

I love what my job does to support the soldiers. My passion is and will always be the arts but I am proud to be a part of a great cause.

So…as you saw in my earlier posts, I submitted some T-Shirt Designs for a Marvel Contest that will be held on We Love Fine http://www.welovefine.com/. The winning prize is $2500. Now, not that I couldn’t use this money; however, if I win, I’ve decided to ask the company to instead donate the money to the “Wounded Warrior Project.” I would rather the money go there than in my pocket. My heart is to give to others who need it most.

The “Wounded Warrior Project” is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to “honor and empower wounded warriors” of the United States Armed Forces. “The Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) works to raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of severely injured service men and women, to help severely injured service members aid and assist each other, and to provide unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs.”

These are the two designs I submitted:

They are still being reviewed and haven’t been put up yet. (They might not even accept the designs). Who knows!?

It’s the thought that counts!!!

Have a nice day Everyone!

Loki T-Shirt References

20120607-230849.jpg

Hi!

First: I do not own anything that has anything to do with Marvel. I did this for a contest and for fun.

A few people asked me what images I had referenced to do this shirt design so I thought I’d post the links here.

I designed a “Marvel” Villain shirt! I had to draw it in Inkscape tho so I know it’s not the best and I couldn’t use Helvetica like I would have liked too.

Images below were used as references.

Loki’s Suit:

Let me know if you have any questions! Inkscape is a great freeware out there for us poor people so I really enjoy using it. I hate that I don’t have all the features that I’m used to for Illustrator and Photoshop.

Have a great night!

Loki – Both Sides (T-Shirt Design)

OK, so I was at work and got INSPIRED! I started to draw this idea out for a T-Shirt Design! I used Inkscape because I’m too poor to buy my favorite program, Illustrator.

It was all drawn piece by piece in vector. I am still working on drawing on a computer without a tablet so I know it’s not too good. A lot better people out there but I had fun doing this!

I used some photographs and posters from the “Avengers” movie for Loki’s helmet.

The scarf was the hardest part. I looked at the photo of Mr. Hiddleston in a suit as Loki and didn’t realize how much designing really went into that scarf. So, I drew hundreds of tiny golden circles to get the same effect. It’s close enough. 😉

Let me know what you think!

Loki – “I’m Listening” – T-Shirt Design

Hi!

So, I designed a T-Shirt for a contest and wanted to get some feedback. The rules are that it has to be a Marvel Villian and not look like any of the actors. So, of course, I picked Loki from Thor because he was always my favorite villian in the comics and now in the Movies.

I put this together referencing a scene from the movie, “Avengers.”

Any feedback – good or bad – I take all!

Thanks!
