Re: Tattooed Lemming



Larry Lemming has... changed. Once upon a time he was such a goody goody trying to change the world with his protests. He has fallen in with a bad crowd, and is following the pack. Looks like Larry won't be making it through another running season.

This is basically a resub of a design I did for the Individualism derby. My first entry was doing so poorly, I had to take a second shot this week.

Thank you your great feedback. If I make a version two of this, I am going to reconsider the shirt color. I had a tough time with it and since the point has been made a few times, I will definitely revisit it. Thanks again for your input. It is much appreciated.

Still don't like the concept. There's barely anything to allude to it being a tattoo.

i like the thumbnail better than the whole design. not to say this isnt good, but i dont see the need for more than 2 zebras.

Re: Acherontia lachesis IIIx



This is beautiful and has my vote as well. The line work and halftones are amazing, but there is one area that in the halftones that seems odd to me in the upper part of the abdomen between the wings.

The halftones seem to be almost uniformly symmetrical with the exception of this area. There is a horizontal "line" of lighter orange (running across where the wings meet the abdomen) most apparent on the left side as it is between two darker areas. As the line runs right, it staggers down in the middle then continues across. Was this intentional? Considering the detail this has, I am guessing it was, but it just throws me a bit.

The Freaking Rules of This Week's Derby wrote:Your design must have some clear connection to tattooing, tattoo culture, or recognizable tattoo styles. This doesn't mean your design has to be a rose or an anchor. If you're an expert in tat arcana and you want to parody a 16th century Malay thieves' tattoo, explain yourself and provide links to backup documentation and you're set. We'll also accept designs involving the idea of tattooing - your zombie tattoo parlor cartoon is fair game. But you can't just submit any old design and claim "This could totally be a tattoo."

cool idea but the way it just crops off on the right and at the bottom is unfortunate and makes me not want it :X

I think the only thing that could possibly make this shirt any cooler would be if she were sporting derby style roller skates with those striped socks. Hell, it already looks like it could be a ladies roller derby logo.

Re: Acherontia lachesis IIIx



Thanks for all the nice comments and votes everyone.

@earthart - now that you mention it, that area's bothering me a bit - figured I had spent enough time on this design and it was good enough. Probably not worth it to pull and resub this late in the game, doesn't look like a print anyhow.

It looks fine on the hi res art, just this size with the halftones seems odd.

It's a direct parody of a common aspect of tattoo culture: People scratching words they do not understand into their skin. It's not blatantly obvious unless you speak Chinese, but if it was, the joke wouldn't work.

Re: Yeah, thats what it really says.



If the tatto is on the back - he can't read it. And since the head is only turned 90 degrees - it seems safe to assume that is as far the head turns, or he/she/it would completely turn his/her/its head to address the bot doing the tattoo.

At least that's the way I'm reading it (heh-heh).

Nice. Sweet and simple. Although it might look better if you enlarged it and centered it on the shirt.

V's are way more attractive. I guess we could start a petition. We have 2 signatures anyways and it can only go up from there.

Of course you can add me on facebook. Be my friend or fan, I have both.

Everyone else, thanks for the great comments. The more this goes on the more I'm wishing this would do better too. It would look so good for the summer! Guess I'll have to just make one for myself. Wouldn't be the first time.




Two votes from me--
one for the v-necks and the other for this design. Looks great!

Well i sort of agree. I still love the shirt but would have preferred the front half, tattooed zebra, back half combo. Love the design on the zebra and would have liked it to be a little bigger on the shirt.

Love Star Wars and this is a great concept but it's pretty unwearable. Who wants to walk around with a giant, disembodied gold arm across their chest?

Actually I did (and Serpens Cauda and Caput, too), but only because I was a dedicated stargazer for a while as a kid. I didn't know the zodiacal aspect, though. Neat!

i think the "77" is in reference to the bible verses on forgiveness--if you look closely, you can see the sublimated "forgive" scrolling across the left side...

i'm not really pushing too hard for printing (i already know it's probably not good enough to win)

i'm mostly just looking for concept approval.

i just thought it'd be hilarious if he had my little pony etched across his stomach.

if it does win, i'll change the characters enough to not be the originals, but still have some semblance of recognition.

but thanks for the vote! whoever that was
