But threadless' terms of submission, say that regardless of whether or not they print it you surrender all rights to your design. Unlike woot they do not have a 60 days and you get your design back policy.

Yeah I think heather grey is enough to make people come burn your house down and salt your earth. I look quite smashing in baby blue, so maybe I'm partial to it. But the bottom line is I could put every design on black or asphalt simply because they're the least likely to get griped about, but if I think the design works best on another color that's what I'm going to use. Variety is the spice of life.

Hey Joshua,

Yeah, I use a waccom tablet with photoshop.
But you can also use GIMP, a free program that works a lot like photoshop. If your looking to get a drawing tablet, you can get them for around $50 nowadays I believe.

Thanks again for the continued support guys!

That is the worst kind of torture!!! Well I know we all hope you have a great trip and we will all be on pins and needles FOR you ( Why suffer alone!) Just the health care professionals alone in this country would make this a best seller, also with the passing of the health care bill there will be a huge need for more doctors\nurses etc to handle the new influx of patients...

have a safe trip.

I absolutely love this design.
If this makes it I am for sure buying one and completely disagree with everyone else who seems to be giving you such a hard time.
I like the fact that the line between the two elements is blurred and that its hard to pick out alll the elements but if you try you still can.
No it isnt a cutesy shirt but the design is awesome.
Would it be possible to get a high res shot of this because if it doesnt make it I definitly want it as a poster or background or something.
It is amazing and you did a fantastic job!

Here's hoping! And welcome to NY! It's too bad you couldn't have come last weekend, when it was gorgeous. Now we're in typical March weather - windy, alternately gray and sunny - confused!

I am so loving this thread - I just bought the tablet, and can't afford new software right now. Not a Adobe's prices, for sure! Thanks!

Oh, snap - I didn't even think about the shirt color. Damn! That gets lemon juice in the eye. Maybe if you get a chance later, you'll be able to resub on a correct color. I sure would like to see this again, here or somewhere.

Ah man. Once I read your comment and realized what was going on I love the idea hardcore. But the fact that you had to explain it to me means I can't bring myself to vote for it.

Your idea is awesome, but you should find a better way to execute it IMO.

I will take advice any time. I have some great ideas just getting them across sometime can be hard. I did not even know there were submit rules. LOL. Thank you again for you help and advice. I look forward to your future support and help.

SnowQueenVT wrote:James this is a really REALLY cool picture and I just voted for it, I know how crazy it is to get your first submission submitted correctly, but you have a couple things still to fix (Don't hate me!)

You are only allowed 6 colors
Your artwork needs to be displayed on a woot shirt template
That foggy amorphous looking effect may not be allowed either(No gradients)

You are talented and I love your design, good job fixing your 1st image that was on display but it still has to be on a "shirt template"
(look at some other peoples to see what That is if you do not know, and you can't draw the shirt template yourself that has been tried and rejected.)

Good luck James Your design deserves the screen space!

Your character alone, with the nuts and bolts above would be enough to get your point across and it would then be printable...

I do love the character and the anguish so apparent in its body language.

I used GIMP to color this actually. It supports .psd files so doing these collabs are possible even using two different programs. Awesome!

AdderXYU wrote:This comment is untrue. There are THOUSANDS of anti-artist wooters. Hence this design being in the fog at all. It cannot be called artistic. It's the same damn thing as always.

there are many many wooters who only ever praise a very small, very generic, very untalented subset of this site, and then spend the rest of their time implying the people who expect good work to win do nothing but complain and troll (though anyone who paid attention to the site would know such people DO regularly praise work, while the others literally only exist to support the worst of the worst).

It's obvious woot doesn't care. They have no desire to respect anyone except the ignorant masses and multiple fake accounts. Which is all the more reason we have to. So long as trolls are calling intelligent, factual art critique trolling, we have to fight if we truly care about intelligence and quality.



Oh, Adder, please keep on trying to tell people what is art and what is not. How stupendously ignorant to the very concept of what art is.

This shirt is a reminder of the often forgotten weakeness of the classic Hollywood vampire; vanity. If the sun has gone down and you're all out of wooden stakes, garlic and holy water, Dracula's irresistable compulsion for photo booths might just save your life.



Here's a close-up detail of the photo strip. You will need to add your own sound effects:

Thanks!

I'm a ink sketch artist at heart. and when I take one of my pieces and recreate it on the CP it gains a more professional quallity but loses some of the depth that it once had.

The way you make your art is something to aspire to my fiend. For what it's worth, you have my vote. and thanks again
