Pirate Shadow by Danielmorris1993 makes an anime shirt extremely stylish with its unusual presentation. While a lot of pop culture shirts aim for sales by imitating the precise look of a character, trying to get as close to genuine merchandise as possible, this design succeeds by reducing the character to a silhouette and a few well-chosen colored lines. The pose chosen is classically heroic, standing above the viewer like a towering statue, and with one raised hand helping to highlight the iconic yellow hat. The background gives the hat and face even more emphasis by placing a huge moon behind them like a halo. But the colorful, streaking pattern of the sky is for me the real star of the shirt- it achieves gorgeous sunset tones and even a sense of motion, the perfect setting for implying adventure and wildness.
