I'm sorry I lashed out, but I came to a fairly reasonable conclusion. You said "I feel like I've seen this tribal tattoo thingie elsewhere." Not that you've seen this _style_ elsewhere or this kind of thing elsewhere. If you'd said, "It's similar to other things out there" as you stated in your most recent post, I never would've commented.

If you didn't mean to accuse Dave of art theft, then I apologize.

Looks closer to eye-ease green to me, or institutional green. The kind they use in hospitals. There's a reason this color is associated with sickness. I'd suggest a light blue instead (minus the green), or good old fashioned white. These color choices are just weird and the green color shouldn't be used in anything.

I created an account just to leave you this comment:

I love this - the simplicity is really nice, and I think it does effectively draw attention to act of masquerading.

The horse loses form around the tail - I could tell that you had taken the linework away from another drawing. For the silhouette to read more clearly, try moving the tail out from his body so you can see the full shape of the legs.

So it appears that this shirt and "Greedy Pirate" are battling for that 4th place spot In the Fog.

Re: Acorn Greed



I like this shirt quite a bit. I agree that the green is very eye-catching, but I never saw it as a bad thing. To me, it's what made it clear that the the design represents greed.
Even though this shirt probably won't print (which is unfortunate ... but maybe there will be an 11th hour voting surge), I hope to see this little guy featured on a shirt in another Derby. Very well done, ramyb!

It's the same kind of odd green highlights DavidShenoda uses on his entries. I agree it's an unnatural color and just an odd choice.

I'd wear it and I'm a girl. xD But in specific situations only.

I appreciate your opinion, and I'd love to get together over lunch and discuss our plan of action. Let's say tomorrow round 11ish, or maybe 12. I'm anxious to hear more of your brilliant ideas for our t-shirts. Toodles!

Actually, I think you might want to check your monitor's color settings because there's no way this green is "lime" green. In any case, I tried blue but it just wasn't the same. Also orange lacked contrast.

Re: Grapes of Wrath



Love it! Especially the one getting screamed at by the one behind him. Or is he getting eaten?

Kinda funny... this derby would've been perfect for clydefrog's entry from derby 61:

i may do that, but it'll be completely different since DBH doesn't limit art to six flat colors.

they won't since it's not getting enough votes, but it'll be in my shop (see link below) in 60 days.

Charging with sword drawn. That's what Samurai do.

Personally, I don't care for it; it doesn't show the sin. I see him charging at an opponent and screaming to unnerve said opponent, but I don't see the representation of Wrath. However, I can appreciate that there are those that like - and even love - this design.

Now, that is not to say I think kduece is not a talented designer. Quite the contrary. I liked the The Dandy Lion. If I remember correctly, someone called that design "lines and splotches" and it still won 2nd Place.

This one is done in the same style. Although is popular enough to make it up into the fog, the popular vote is all that discerning as evidenced not only by some of the placing designs in past Derbies, but also by some of the other entries garnering votes in this one.

That's my two cents . So, I'll just say, "Congrats, kdeuce, on another fogged design and may the fickle Woot-gods continue to look upon you favorably!", and then move on. :-P
