Wait a second. We aren't calling this anime, right? Because I think that would be giving it too much credit. There are simple designs and then there are three identical paint cans copy and pasted with a different fill color.

This... is a t-shirt design. Specifically it's a t-shirt design that shows all the overused memes that plague derbies everywhere. Two of which I've participated in (being the angry squirrel and the dinosaur). It's really meant for people that have participated in the derbies for a while (My one year woot anniversary was last month). If you stick around and notice things this shirt only gets funnier, or sadder depending on how you handle disappointment.

I for one like to laugh at it.

Also, if you're going to be critical of a shirt you don't understand, you better have some kick ass designs to back your statement up or you're just going to sound like a complete anus. A complete anus.

One more time:

A complete anus.

Adder, I'd love to see a clear description of parody some time. Perhaps I don't understand it. Deriding me for a lack of knowledge of copyright law doesn't really do much to fix the deficit in my knowledge, and I have not seen anything online anywhere that clearly explains it. Who knows, with a little help from you, I might become the poster child for parody design.

Re: The epic begins



As much as it is a non-issue to some, i finally figured out what was bothering about this design. I agree with gizmo that there is nothing original going on here. It's a simple reproduction of a generalized scene. Most of the defenders seem to be asserting that the best part of the shirt isn't the scene but the art style which is original. That also isn't really the case either and I've thought as much since the beginning it just took me awhile to find it. They are incredibly similar to the baby turtles in the old cartoon show. The major difference is that these are monotone.

Starting from about 6:00 minutes you will see what I mean and particularly at 6:32. I suppose DF still gets a little credit for having one upsidedown though that doesn't particularly feel original to me either but I can't find evidence of it.

Thanks! Good idea, the trunk could use a little bit of deformation, but a strong shadow is cast so I figured it would be quite straight. Thanks for the feedback!

Did you notice the head and foot shape of the glowing turtle(6:11)? Use your eyes when you look at things. You will see a difference. Turtles look like turtles. Cartoon turtles resemble turtles. But no one would confuse one of my turtles with an original pre-ninja turtle.

Now you're just arguing semantics so to speak. And you're also incorrect since when I saw your design I thought immediately of the cartoon. If you're going to say that rounding out a bulge and not having a tiny point as if to simulate toes makes your design completely your own you're more than welcome to take that stance.

But the real issue which many are keying off of is that it's very easy to pander to the community here. It's arguable whether or not that is a good thing, but for every design like this which simply plasters a well known scene drawn slightly differently, there are a lot more creative, clever and original designs which aren't getting printed. Most of what I like about this site is that I can get something different than I would see anywhere else because there are some incredibly talented artists doing really creative stuff.

Your shirt is going to sell out before 8am so I wouldn't worry about a little dissent, but the design doesn't do anything for me for the reasons I listed. As a final note, if turtles always look like turtles and you admit to having added nothing to the scene, what exactly should we be getting from this design other than a reproduced scene slightly distressed?

Lastly, the solid line of rain isn't really appealing. Maybe shorten it and make it not as solid toward the top?



Good suggestions, I went with the classic bright yellow raincoat for contrast. And the rain looked a bit better... not so small. Thanks for the crit, it always helps with future posts!

Err... heh sorry i didn't know you were a female. I would certainly do so if I ever planned a trip to africa. My girlfriend lived there for 2 years so I know it is in the cards to go back! My best trek so far is doing all of the Superior Hiking Trail on MNs north shore. Took 5 trips to do it (stupid school costs) but it is more then worth it in my opinion. Send me a message if you ever plan a trip into Quetico and the BWCA.

No, I'm pretty sure he got the design from here. 7:56.

See how that crystal kinda looks like a vial? and then all he did was make the turtles quadrupeds and stole their weapons and clothing. The upside down turtle isn't even original. You can see that michealangello fell on his back at 7:29, right after the shredder cut him down from the net.

If you put it into specific context of THIS derby, it's not that bad. Why? Take this design out. The remainders in the fog become the top three. Either the Disney shirt or the tree shirt get 4th and have a chance at printing. Even if it's an "original" concept, I think this is a better shirt and something that I would rather buy than the "blank" shirt. The tree shirt is cool, but I worry about the coloring on it. I love the Disney shirt, but it's still pretty far behind, so I don't know if it could make the climb to third.

Yeah, there are some designs I love by designers I love *coughbootsbootscough*. Unfortunately, those designers tend to be relatively far down the chart, so whether this shirt deserves to be here or not isn't REALLY that big of a deal.

*shrug*

As for the shirt, I didn't like the style for the Narnia shirt because it was just like...three things chilling on a shirt. Here, since it is an entire scene, it seems to work better for me, despite the controversy over originality and whether or not you're a terrible, terrible designer for stooping to that level.
