A-Kon 23 T-shirt Contest Entry by Shinjukou A-Kon 23 T-shirt Contest Entry by Shinjukou
This year's theme is "youkai", oh god I can't even tell you how happy that makes me, hahaha~

This design is probably way too busy, but it was really fun to draw and pretty well shows everything I wanted to include (a cute girl, cute demons, inanimate things come to life, and the Dallas skyline, lol). I'm kinda worried I made the demons too cute and I don't know if the umbrella is even recognizable as an umbrella anymore because the handle is not visible. ;_;

I have at least two more designs I want to finish before the contest is over <3 I also have lots of other projects I'm working on, so we'll see how this goes~

Being a guy and all, I don't know if I could wear this without feeling a little less than manly. >.> Definitely a cute design though, I love your paper lanterns. Good luck!

Aww, I'm sorry to hear that ;3; I tried to make it less scary and more cute for kids~
I'm glad you still think it's cute though, thank you so much! <3

I'd be happy to wear such a cute T-shirt ;A; Good luck!

As a serious suggestion, you might want to enter an alternative version with less detail. The rules state that the detail will get drowned out with the screening processing of making the T-shirt. It might effect your chances of winning... and I'd love to see you win because the world needs more cute shirts! XD logic = win

I keep hearing the Youkai theme and it makes me want to enter! I like drawing art for cons but I hate doing contests ;-; But I love drawing anything demon related... this makes me wanna join... but... but... ;-;

;v; Aww, thank you so much!

I planned on submitting a less-detailed version (with less stars/city lights, that sort of thing), but I just got lazy last night and didn't actually do it. *w*~ As long as I submit it before the deadline I think I'm good though! I'm so glad you like it...I thought about you when I saw the theme too (because of all of the youkai stuff you've done in the past <3), give it a shot! Who knows, the theme next year might be...big beefy men with slick muscles and body hair standing in front of sports cars! ;_; Then I think we'd both up a creek, LOL.

I dont think this has too much detail. Take a look at 22's T-shirt. It has way more detail than this and it won :) I agree that this is cute though. I would like to see more cute shirts instead of the usual ones we get. :D I entered it as well, but good luck to you.
