Someone correct me if I'm imagining this posture wrong.
Dashie was flying forward and has stopped to look in the other direction. Her right leg is angled down at the shoulder, angled up at the knee (hence the 'bump') and back down again at... where? the non-existent wrist? Bent back down at some point.
So there are some definite... skeletal issues in play here. HOWEVER!!!
This remains one of the most beautiful, dare I say mouth-watering designs I've seen on this site and I plan on buying one just as soon as I stop being so relatively impoverished.
Keep it up, Sam.
Ordered it from Germany. Fucking worth the 40 bucks :D.
Just got yesterday. I showed my mom and she said... "that looks gay." I said, "No, this looks beast. You're just mad because you don't have a MLP shirt." "The rainbow makes it look gay." "It's Rainbow Dash! It's in her name; she needs the rainbow!" "Just don't wear it around me." "Rainbow Dash is the best pony.... your argument is invalid." Again, the printing is simply fantastic!
This is definitely one of the most artistic designs for sale (which is what you expect coming from a contest), and for that reason it is one of my most favorites on this site. Although almost all of the shirts on this site are great, I would only actually buy and wear the ones that are presented nicely such as this. Shirts with a longish caption or "Brony" plastered on them come across as being a bit tacky, which is fine, but I personally wouldn't like to wear those kinds of shirts.
Something like this, on the other hand, is elegant, clean, and (dare I say) even fashionable. The design flows nicely, and overall just looks awesome. So for that I thank you, Sam, for giving to us one of my favorite MLP shirts. =)
Yup I see it. That "bump" needs to be there, else her right leg would be cut off.
This has sold so may shirts because of all the argument over it. I can see how the bump is her knee. You just have to look at it funny for a second.
Her knee itself isn't there to be "artistic," it's just part of her outline. I don't think it's stupid-looking at all, and the picture doesn't look good at all without it---then her right leg is much too short. She'd have no thigh. However, since there is a way to look at this shirt so that her knee does resemble an odd protrusion from her chest, there must be some way to adjust the size or position of the knee, or perhaps even twist or outline her body somewhat differently...SOMEthing to alleviate people's discomfort with the current image and clarify the parts. I agree 100% with Bob--the WING is the issue here, but the right leg is distracting everyone!
Put your finger over the bump. It looks far better without it. This is the only shirt I really want so if the bump was gone I would buy it in a heartbeat. Those who say were not artistic enough to realize what the bump is is bs, its a stupid looking bump that's it, there's nothing artistic about it.
freind of the person that made this
@ SOME OF YOUSE
YOU WISH YER WHUTCHOOCALLIT LOOKED LIKE THIS
Just posting this link from the girls version of this shirt to show what the lump is :)
To me it's plainly obvious that the "bump" is her right knee. There's nothing awkward about it. Her mane and tail are just fine, too. What weirds me out is the one visible wing...it doesn't appear to be attached to her at all. I'd redo it with a nice pair of wings in the proper position.
I like that design very much. If tees I have ordered will meet my expectations, then that will be my next order :). Fantastic!!1
1. Fix Bump
3. GET MY MONEY!
Really, fix it and I WILL buy this. I do realize that it's part of her thigh, but it looks....very odd. And it also makes her right leg look ridiculously longer than her left.
tl;dr: fix bump, get money
if you put your finger over the bump/thigh/whatever, the design looks far better. i would buy this shirt in an instant if it were removed. it's the only shirt i really want and it just looks awkward with that bump.
Wow, this shirt is amazing.
The thing with people saying shit about the bump looking odd I think aren't creative enough to "visualize" her pose. To me it's very clear that is her leg.
The bump is her thigh. What people think is her other leg is actually her Tail.
Her body is kinda twisted so her back leg is up by her knee showing off her rainbow butt tattoo thing.
Hey everyone. The bump is her thigh. It would ACTUALLY look ridiculous if it wasn't there.
You guys are being silly. This shirt is perfect.
Dear Mr./Mrs. Sam, I will love you forever if you redesign the bump a little bit.
I mean it. I'll be your best friend :(
If the wing and bump were fixed, I would buy this t-shirt immediately.
I want this so.bad. But that extra leg boob looking thing is really distracting. This shirt would look so much better if it was taken out.
I get what everyone is... fussing about, but now that I see it as the right haunch, it just works for me.
I can see the bump and now I can't un-see it! AHHHHHHHH!!!
I gotta be honest, that bump in her chest which I realize is her elbow, looks bad design wise. Her pose would need to be fixed for it look correct. The tail should look like it's connected too for better flow. I don't think this design was thought out very well.
Guys, she HAS a tail! It's flowing the same direction as the back of her mane! Look at the second set of rainbow colors!
One, two, three, four, FIVE?!
Okey so the bump..the fact that she only has one wing over her mane instead of front and the tail doesn't feel right either...
This is awesome, who cares about her right flank, it still looks cool, and that rainbow IS her tail, guys.
I GET IT. All three of the protrusions to the left are supposed to be wing-feathers, not forelegs. She doesn't have her forelegs bent out behind her, it's just oddly-done too-wide wing-feathers.
She has a tail, sillies. That's why the rainbow resets for the longer flowy part. It's curving around behind her, out of sight, then comes out on the left side of the shirt.
Also, uh, she *has* a tail. The lower swoosh is her tail; note that it has another set of green, blue, and purple in it. Her mane's upper colours just aren't extended.
1. Fix the bump
2. Take my money
Really, I want to throw lots of money at this shirt. The bump is the only thing in the way of that. This is a really amazing design otherwise. Fixed bump + tail = perfection.
Yeah, I would buy this in heartbeat if it weren't for the wonky looking leg and no tail. I think Sam should redesign it a little bit to fix those little problems.
That shirt needs a fix ASAP. Once you spot the bump, it looks, for the lack of a better word, hideous.
Someone contact "Sam" and make him do a redesign. I so want a revised version of this t-shirt!
Oh, I see it; it does seem to be her other flank. I feel stupid now. xD
That is a good question
I think it's her right knee.
Now, I'm no expert in pony anatomy, but I'm pretty sure that ponies have at most four legs.
It's her right flank.
It's the knee of her other leg
Is the top one supposed to be part of the other wing? If it looked a little more like the one that's fully shown it wouldn't look so weird...
@simon, the reason I didn't purchase T_T
Yeah, what IS that bump...? It's the only reason stopping me from hastily buying this (AMAZING!) shirt. Seriously, I didn't notice it 'till Simon pointed it out, but now I can't stop seeing it. D:
Lynn “Zhorken” Vaughan
That's... her right knee. Her left leg is stretched way further out.
That looks awesome! @Simon, the bump at the front is her other leg on the other side of her body being raised. So, its pretty much her knee.
Her other back leg.
Yes my point exactly..the bump by her left front leg is all wrong AND she has NO tail???
It's her right horse knee, or whatever it is you call that thing that's like a knee on a horse.
Yeah i noticed that... what the hell is it?
Looks like she's facing forward, with her head turned the opposite direction. Cute design though.
That bump is the reason I'm not going to get this shirt.
@Simon: Unless I'm mistaken, it's the elbow (or equine equivalent) for that front foreleg.
Either that or a REALLY fat parasprite.
It's the haunch of her right back leg (the leg behind her body)
its part of her other leg i think
Crap, I can't unsee that bump now. What is it? Damn shame, because this is an otherwise wonderful shirt.
Crap, I can't unsee the bump
That confused me too, simon... I think it's supposed to be the upper part of her right hind leg. The proportions are kinda wonky though.
simon: That's .... I don't really know.
It can't even be a man-thing.
I think it's the top part of her right, bottom leg.
Her stomach. Mind outta the gutter 0_o
I think that's meant to be her wing.
...what's that bump up by her front legs?
