Kanji by 1NNU3NDO Kanji by 1NNU3NDO
Shirt designs for a clothing brand. They commissioned/challenged me to base the designs on the Japanese Kanji signs mixing it with my own, took a free interpretation to the 4 signs chosen.

The idea was to mix traditional Japanese culture with western elements (yes, one of them looks like the 300 masks. They were inspired by Noh masks themselves apparently).

The themes are Way of the Samurai, Legend, Perfect and Victory

Not a fan of the gradient on the Bushido image, but otherwise the collection is bold, very striking and iconic.

The guns are brilliant, that would be my face. Especially like how the white smoke eats up part of the neckline of the teeshirt. Good stuff!

Thanks man :) The gradient is to represent a gold print... the actual print is in a gold

Sweet. Are you planning on printing this proper? Gold inks are pricey... Metallic inks in general are over the top from what I heard, though I havent had much most exposure to the print industry.

loving the first and third. The shading scheme on the first one is just totally ace. I love the smoke on the third one, so crisp and yet not at the same time.

Hey one of them looks like it's from 300.

Kidding ;) I just wanted to be one of those annoying type of people who don't read.

Awesome job, very stylistic and crisp.

easy? lets see you come up with that without copying his...if you've ever used vectors you'll know that that isnt simple.

relax man i'm not discrediting his skill.
i was just pointing out how whenever i see that filter it somehow makes the piece seem less remarkable, which is weird because it still looks great

the effect actually is pretty simple to do, but a lot of art is how/where you use the simple things... and it works here :)

Absolutely great, colors, shapes and mixes, probably the one least stunning is "Bushidu", may be the gradient, i don't know doesn't seems as good as the otherones.

I put in the gradient to illustrate the gold print. Didn't spend a lot of time on making it look like perfect gold. Thanks very much!

I'd actually buy and wear the first two easily, especially the legend.

I gotta tell you man, that I don't really like the smoke on the 3rd one, cuz it obviously was done with the help of illustrators distort/swirl tools, riiight? :D

cmon dude, you could do much better by hand!

my apologies if it actually IS done by hand, tho but otherwise yea :toocool:
