1. First Draft; Arm too long. Not dramatic enough. Bicep weird.
2. I didn't like the placement of the NVGs
3. Better pose. More interesting.
4. Needs better eye wear. I didn't like those goggles.
5. Looking good!
This illustration is based off the Greek Gorgon and the Perseus myth. Some deep subject matter to wrestle with this monster: PTSD, physical injuries, loss of friends, lovers etc.
Maybe you're a Marine who did a lot of deployments and lost some friends, maybe you're a cop who spends time seeing hard stuff on the streets. Man has an internal struggle after he's battled a beast, and he must battle the beast within himself. He isn't a demigod. He's a regular Joe who is a hero to many. This shirt illustration symbolizes the brotherhood of man, men and women, that seek out and battle bad things.
"WE FIGHT MONSTERS. I'm not afraid of anything in this world that's been seen. I have scars on the inside. My badges of honor. There's a light inside my heart; it's for others to see. I live to show the way to those lost and in pain. And you? Walk with magnificence. Cock of the walk. Lead the way or follow those who use their pain to fight monsters and the injustices in this world"~Michael Kurcina.
The Gorgon is a crafty monster with many serpent heads.
Every piece of Spotter Up art represents something deep and powerful! This art represents the cop, the soldier, the mother, the person that fights back against a screwed up world.
We don't care if you have scars from the battlefield, child abuse or divorce. Everyone has a story to tell and they can either follow that long line of men and women who state "woe is me" or they can break from the path and find a new track to follow. Spotter Up simply pushes the idea of being your own person, finding solutions to problems, and not being a drag on the world. Learn new things, impart wisdom, build friendships, and learn to not be a slave. There are lots of great sites and communities out there. Well, this one is ours.
Stay hopeful, stay strong, stay cool and be bad ass.

Spotterup promotes the idea of the classical "whole" man found in ancient texts. For our modern day he is the GUNFIGHTER WRITER WILDMAN MONK: Man of Action, Man of Intellect, Man of Emotion, Man of Spirit.
A man needs to have a lot of heart, and act daily as if he is short on life. In medieval symbolism the skull represents life. It can also represent death. Our skull with the heart for a crown represents living and dying and man must operate as if he connected to the best parts of himself, the creative, spiritual, and wild parts of himself. He is the whole man. He is a fighter, a creator, a reckless, wild animal and a God fearing and humble man. Oh, but he is much more, far more...
Consider the Athenian ideal of a balanced education. From the book Greek Realities: Life and Thought in Ancient Greece, By Finley Hooper "They could play some flute but should not neglect wrestling." They avoided the excesses of life. They might focus on music or philosophy but spent enough time so that their bodies did not become soft."
A Spotter is known as the consummate Chessman. He identifies issues, gathers information on the threats, devises a plan, and executes it successfully. In heraldry, the skull represents victory of life over death, and Thanks our spotter tower is a fortress that is a testament to his ability. Sometimes success is achieved by looking inside rather than beyond, and it is gained by listening to what you ‘know’. He is the sentinel that watches over others, himself, and learns in order that he can point the way out of danger. AUT INVENIUM VIAM AUT FACIAM-I will either find a way or I will make one. Legend has it that the military commander Hannibal said this to his generals after they told him it was impossible to cross the Alps on elephants.
