I know it isn't cartoony, but I thought this was cool- worth pursuing, or not? black or royal blue?

I like the black, but I almost always like black. Orc likes them both, but he thinks if you did the blue shirt you should see what it looks like if you invert the colors so that the jelly fish is a lighter color.

I tried that before, but it was not a good idea. ;^)

You might get a "we did a jellyfish on a halftone background" from woot though... I got the previous one.

Thanks! It's kinda slipped out of the hotness and into that place where designs from 15-40 live... Hope for a HM though!

I really like it. I feel like it's a bit generic, but still looks really good. Your artistic talents are growing (and I like it on blue)

I think I am much better at realism than at cartoony. thanks for liking it, though as far as improving my technique, it came directly out of my raindrop ocean design from about the middle of last November.

I'll work on it.

So, people did the flea circus? Unfortunate. But I really don't care actually... I'll submit it anyway.

Well, it was that or cream or light blue.

Don't worry. I'm not exactly pleased with the results of the design, so it's likely I may just decide to delete the whole thing. It's contrived, and doesn't look very good. Bleah. SOOOO glad I wasted 3 hours fighting with a MacBook on it.

excellent.

Tantor always shakes before going into the big tent. He will never forget the night those clowns, the awful, horrible clowns, the night they gave him the bag of peanuts, so innocent-looking! and then, and then...there must have been nearly a hundred mice spilling out and over the top of the peanuts bag. The horror, gah.

He trumpets. He stomps the picture of the clowns as he gets to the opening. He goes inside and rides the little bike.

another day, another bag of oats.

Okay, I got another idea. Ranks an 11 on the cute scale. Involves goldfish. Maybe I'll get time tonight to get it done.

And a third idea involving shooting a shark out of a cannon into a tentacled mass of jellyfish.

It's really good, skek, and I voted. you submitted it at possibly the worst time possible. If you end up resubmitting later, I'd make the other fish look disgusted, with their mouths twisted up, maybe rolling their eyes a little. might even have a little one with big shining awed eyes.

When a major designer posts an artistic marvel about 5 designs after yours. As a result, nobody goes any further and you don't get a single vote later.

oh, that.

it's a bad thing. happened to me more than once. more than 10 times.

though, most of y'all are major designers compared to me.

I'm just glorying in being a serious artist for once. what a surprise!

I'm starting to feel like kenney. It's more fun to do my meme even if I don't win. I just can't cowtow to the voters.

V2 will have better fish (shading will not be so creepy), and I think a small goldie with a balloon animal on a string might be a good thing too. should I try to add some random background to make it less like fish on a blank shirt too?

yeah, like that castle silhouette you used in the last derby.
