I think you misunderstood, and as a result, you straightened his point. Each one of those characters is completely different. Each one is a new character, a new rendition (and in some cases, a completely new style). The ceiling and ahab ones are close, but not close enough to be targeted like this... It's a far fetched analogy in my opinion.



No difference for me. Drakxxx recycling of the Cthulhu character is not that different than what RamyB does. In fact, I could make a case that at least RamyB's characters are original creations vs. the Cthulhu being "lifted" from Lovecraft. Listen, I'm not a big RamyB fan. I own one of his shirts and rarely vote for him in the derby. What's downright tiring is the same people constantly going over every freakin' RamyB entry with a fine-tooth comb while not holding the other "chosen ones" to the same standards.

For the record, I did not choose Drakxxx. I heard he's a MOT so blame that one on God...

In seriousness, I don't own one Drakxxx shirt and rarely vote for his submissions.

I guess we don't see eye to eye which is completely natural. I honestly don't feel its recycling for the reasons I stated above.

Also, since I decided jump in this, I will add that I don't have any issues with people recycling characters. It does get old when people abuse them, but as an artist, I know that if I create a character I like and I am proud of, I am tempted to stick him/her/it in everywhere.

There are many layers there but at it's very base level there are at least two jokes if not three or four.

I suppose you could argue that, "hah, the genie is supposed to be a genie but he's a cat and the cat is a cat so they are both cats," is funny making it an even two but I'm not that kind of person.



With the cat as a humanoid, it doesn't look good on a shirt. Let's end the argument about the joke quality and realize that it just looks better with the cat genie.

Cats: Good on shirts

Humans: Mediocre at best on shirts

Is it kevlar51 (or something like that) with the Victorian robot? I like the Victorian robot.

Also, Drakxxx isn't re-using Cthulhu in the same sense ramyb re-uses his characters. Drawing the same concept different ways is hardly re-using.

And as for ramyb, that is how he draws Death, and bunnies, and turtles (at least for submission purposes). Are they really "characters?" I see no problem with his use of them (week after week after week), but it grows tiresome. That is a compliment to his buisiness sense, by the way.

I saw this and my jaw hit the floor, perhaps you even heard my squeal before it did. Killer design! I'm already trying to figure out how to pay for the number of shirts required for all of my friends who are Holy Grail freaks and/or notify them if/when it is printed before it sells out... Tim is awesome, but coupled with the killer bunny (we call him "Alfie")... Words alone...

Right! Here's my justification. Beside me being the biggest Harry Potter nerd ever and trying to weasel something by.
Im gonna give you the short version.
In the books only a person who can preform true magic is allowed into a school of magic. In turn they're kinda like constant walking talking magic. Just cause they're not making things disappear or float doesn't mean they're not doing magic, they are. Just in their own little subtle ways. Like if they're living moving magic. :D

It's a bit of a stretch I know, but so are most entries every week. Anywho with this being a late sub and me not having any real art skills it'll never make it up to print. They're just fun to make. :D

Ninja Magic!

Clean the edges of the picture so it doesn't have the square on the black, and maybe off-center the doll a little? Maybe to the left over the heart or to left down on the side some

Thanks for the heads up, I'll do so and then try to figure out where I went wrong so that the shirt color being off error won't repeat itself.
