Re: beard magic!



Cool. I went and bought some silly T just so I could vote for this one.

So if it doesn't make the top ten, are we still able to buy it somehow?

I have a red-beard, lol. I need something to show my mom to prove it's magical next time I go over and she says the same thing she says everytime I go over (when are you gonna shave that all off?!?). LOL

Re: Finders Keepers...



Your daughter does have terrific promise. Definitely encourage her to learn more skills, with paper, and with the software. She has a good grasp on composition - I especially love how the dragon's tail wraps around the leg.
BTW, I didn't see if anyone commented on your scanning issue, other than suggesting tracing paper.
When I scan a drawing, I set it to 300dpi, then desaturate it so it's just grayscale, and the background is pure white. I beef up the lines in PS if they need it, then I select by color and copy just the linework onto a new transparent canvas. This isn't 100% foolproof - for some reason I lose opacity in the lines and have to re-fill them. But that's quicker than having to erase all that gray!

To quote: "That's why for this Derby we want to see your interpretations of magic: its power, its effects on people and nature, or maybe just your favorite magic trick. Conjure up some images that invoke power, showmanship, and mysticism."

I'd say Tim definitely falls into the showmanship category if nothing else.



Parody is required by law for use of intellectual property for profit. If this shirt is made and Monty Python decides to sue, woot would have to prove that there is some form of parody and this shirt makes some kind of statement that the original creators would not have been comfortable with. Woot would lose that battle pretty quickly.

AS stated many many many many many many times before, parody is a defense. IP is property and the burden of proof is on the party creating the derivative work not the license owner.

Excellent advice! Thank you. I'll be sure to do this next time.

Last night I was playing around with halftones, and now have a very basic grasp of them. I'm actually starting to get excited about future entries, and am certain I will improve my speed on formatting her drawings with each subsequent entry. Your advice will certainly help me do so.

I may request a partnership at some point, but for now I think I want to continue learning this on my own. It never occurred to me to teach my daughter about PS, but I can do that, too, as I increase my knowledge. Many thanks to Spiritgreen for his/her tutorial on halftones (it was far better than anything I found in my 5+ books on Photoshop!) at http://shirt.woot.com/Forums/viewpost.aspx?PostID=4382556&PageIndex=6&ReplyCount=252#post4384363.

I will take that as a complement.
By the way, if you have never read the book The Neverending Story, you should. It is amazing.

I think that qualifies. As a fellow Minnesotan (with a red beard) I think anyone who can survive our winters should be an honorary Scandinavian. Plus, it's perfect for Vikings games!

I liked this shirt better when I saw the closeup view of just the wizard and the cards. With the other stuff it's just too busy.

If you like to gamble, I tell you I'm your man
You win some, lose some, it's - all - the same to me
The pleasure is to play, it makes no difference what you say
I don't share your greed, the only card I need is
The Ace Of Spades
The Ace Of Spades

I love this design! The dragon, wizard, fairy, mermaid, and unicorn are all great! I like the water droplets coming out from the mermaid.

Also, great idea to have it all come from a book. I can think of at least 6 people that this would make a great gift for. I would definitely buy a few if this one wins!

Someone mentioned to me that they didn't understand that the design was them playing Paper, Scissor, Rock... Do you all see that? or does it not read that way?

Wait, is it just me or are the elf's thumbs on the wrong side of each hand? With hands in those positions, the thumbs should be on the far side, not facing the viewer.
