If the smile was below the bottom of the "T" it would look like a nose and mouth possibly. But what do I know. I really like the artwork and the idea.

How long did it take you to do the feather textures? I know you had started this prior to the derby and was just curious.



I was thinking the same thing.

sTyLeS wrote:Just a comment/suggestion. I think your thumbnail could really benefit from a different image. It's hard to make anything out in the current one. Maybe zoom out a little bit and show the whole planet, or get some of the fork in there. Something like that to give the prospective voter a little more to go on.

I personally click on every single entry because I don't want to miss out on any hidden gems. But I know there are probably several people that just skim over the thumbnails and only click on the ones that look slightly interesting to them.

It's something I struggle with every week too...trying to figure out what image to use for the thumbnail. Not always easy.
Good luck.



Yeah, I see what you're saying. Here's what happened:
I was trying to think of an idea last night, then I thought of that. I'm awful at executing ideas, as you can see. By the time I got to the thumbnail, I had already seen the ones that are doing well, and I know I don't really have a chance. So I was kind of just way over it by that time, so I opened the design file and didn't resize it at all, I just threw it on.

Long story short; I'm pathetic.

Well, every week I know I don't stand a chance either. I go in with high hopes thinking "this might be the one", but then soon realize I was just kidding myself.

Although, I do enjoy sketching the pics in the first place. And I'm having fun learning to use my new graphics tablet. So, in the end, it's still worth it.

Re: food is murder!



unless youre a vegetarian. in that case, this shirt is about forcing meat-eaters to confront their own meat-eating habits. vote for my shirt.

Part deux. Sorry for the incorrect French on the first one. Here's the resub with the correct French for, "This is not bacon". Silly Canadians

Instead of constantly trying to skirt rules, it might be better to simply come up with something more original and with your own style instead of borrowing a style.



I agree with your first point... the entire reason I went ahead with the design was because

1.) there are no characters involved with the design.
2.) I hand drew the scene
3.) I want to see where woot stands...

as for your second point sTyLeS... please stop riding my back, you've been on me for 2 weeks now and dang I'm getting tired... Shirts like this exist, and they sell, and they get votes, whether you like it or not... That's the sad truth.

I agree that in the past (including last week) I've been a whiny baby when it comes to rejection and pointed fingers at everyone but myself, and now that I've come to terms with that please let me be.

In the meantime I will probably continue to skirt the line due to the type of content I like to draw and the Ideas that my head comes up with. And in return I'm sure I will continue to get rejected from time to time... I'm just trying to determine where exactly that line lies... One thing I have to say is that MOST of the time I try to at least stay original with my parody shirts, so please stop riding me and let me enjoy designing,

I dont jump on you for copying Chik-N-Fila...

Re: Feel The Burn



I didn't even know what anyone meant by 'tusk' at first, but I can kinda see it now too. I was just using a simple shape for the mouth because it was sitting on the t-bone and giving it any 3d-ness seemed to contradict that.

I'll take a look at what I can improve and put up a resub later! Thanks for your honest thoughts. ^__^

Re: Hot Dog's Identity Crisis



When I first looked at this, the first thing that caught my eye was "a tiny bit of poop" then I just had too much fun letting my eyes roam around to see what else there was to find, haha. Very nice! Really like the texture on the hot dog too.

I would so resub this on a secondary color. I would wager you would get more votes.



I happen to love the heather gray shirts. I wish more people used it. I don't know why people are so against it here.

Re: F.Y.I.



I really like the vibe I get from this shirt - feels like a 'vintage' shirt with the colors and text. zombtastic work, Boots. GMV.

I'm aware that there some wierd things on the comp (like parts of the bacon coloring getting cut off), but those shouldn't appear in the actual shirt.

I love it -- the T-bone looks like a nose maybe the 'mouth' could be below that.Or make the T-bone a tad shorter

It is 532 Navy. I'm not sure why it doesn't look right, but I checked it again and it is right.

Canadians and french Canadians are a MUCH different breed... If I ever got offended, this would be the thing to do it.
