Meh.



Check your thumbnail files - I think you have them reversed.

Funny that the song doesn't mention the gnomes. You'd think that'd be important. :^)

Re: Devin



Wow, this is really beautiful. However, it has bupkiss to do with the theme of the derby, I think the design might be too large for printing (needs to be 16 X 20), and - are those 'shopped photos?
Super pretty, and would probably fly well on Cafe Press, but I would expect a visit from the rejectionator, here.

Starting to sink in that you might just win this? It's been great tracking not just the shirt but your reactions in the thread. Best of luck, the shirt absolutely deserves it.

Re: How Golf Balls Forever Find The Water Hazard!!



I see you're not getting any commentary on this one. Probably because it's really not apparent what anyone is looking at. Without your description, I really didn't get it. Actually, I still don't, visually. There's just not enough detail to see that those are rowing Vikings. Also, I can't tell at this level of detail, but it looks like you're using gradients, which is sure-fre rejectionator bait. Good concept. Just needs work.

Ignore my comment on the other thread -they're not reversed. You're just using the same one twice. And neither matches the shirt comp.

Did you ever think that maybe he hasn't painted that last stencil yet?



Lol, no - I hadn't thought of that. Maybe it's just the changeup in style that threw me, but beside your other entries (and past stuff) - readily apparent in your sig - this just isn't half as appealing. I'd love to see you re-work the idea, though, cause it's cute and funny.

I'm going to feel stupid if I'm wrong... But shouldn't it be "write a book about a vampire whom sparkles."

Because you would say "write about book about him" not he, "a vampire" is the indirect object in this case, and who (or as it should be whom) is referring to the vampire.

tgentry wrote:Well to be super picky, I didn't say he was well-known for his water gardens just that he did them. Without digging too deep on it I'm pretty sure I remember some ponds and water lilies from Renoir. But you're right, Monet would have been a better pick as he is THE water garden guy. Regardless of which I picked the analogy is still apt. And I agree that there a lot of off-topic entries, they should really get around to rejecting ALL of them.



Perhaps he did. He did so much, I don't really know. I do know the only Renoir water lily painting I've seen is by a contemporary artist with the same last name. Doesn't matter. You're right, your point is still valid. I'm starting to wonder, after the last 4-5 derbies, how many of the folks subbing here really pay attention to the details of the theme. Do they just look at the title, maybe a quick skim over the text? Yeesh.

Re: Devin



I love the design, but between being off theme and being this late in the show, I doubt it will make the fog. If you decide to sell it on Cafe Press or something, let me know. I'd love to have one.

I'm not convinced that would even be legible on a shirt, of course. The whole "hypothetically printed on clothing" thing sort of slipped my mind, really.



Yeah, that's a downfall when Woot allows text. They really should keep the ban in force, but for this particular theme it was almost a requirement. Well, while I love this idea (with the caveat, still, on some of the text being euphemistic), I almost hope it doesn't print. I'd hate to see a good piece of art come under fire because it does'n't translate well to clothing, and then gets bashed by disappointed buyers. Although..... That's been happening for years with Nevermore, and the damned thing is STILL selling.

Does anyone have any recommendations for online tutorials on coloring and creating halftone effects in Illustrator? I know that Woot may not allow halftones but I like the effect!



You may want to visit here, and here. They aren't specific to Illustrator, but may be of help to you.
You may also want to just Google "Adobe Illustrator Tutorials". There are a lot out ther, like this one.

Don't feel stupid, but you're wrong. Don't worry - English is too complicated for anyone! 'Who' is correct, because 'he' sparkles. I knew I was right, but had to look it up to be sure and be able to explain why:
(Example) The delegates differed as to who they thought might win. (Not whom. Here the entire clause is the object of the preposition. Substitution is particularly helpful in cases such as this. They thought he might win.)

Re: Devin



This doesn't seem to fit the theme... and if that blue color is a gradient it might not even be printable. Still, I voted anyway just to show that I *would* buy one if this somehow gets printed at some point in the future (possibly after being revised). It's quite pretty.

Re: how ice cream works.



This is sweet! Pun intended. I don't see how it's grotesque though. It's just a heart (etc.) after all. The placement is obviously meant to be over the shirt-wearers heart. Nicely done, I'm a sucker for anything ice-cream related.

We have actually gotten a few with those traps. Very few. Not as many as our water feature has accidentally managed to take out. Know how we finally got rid of 'em? We didn't! The chipmunks kicked them out! Now we have no moles, a booming population of chipmunks, and STILL have an entire NYC subway system-worth of tunnels under the yard. Fewer humpy trails, more holes in the ground. Garrrumph!
BTW - so cute, and so well-done, and so hitting a nerve of mine, too. GMV!
