Sorry! I thought two white characters on the shirt would look kind of boring. And I guess they'd have to look more antagonistic which could have been fun too...

Nope, pencil and ink. I definitely use a tablet for color though.

profbrendan wrote:See, I was thinking along the same lines as you. For one thing, your initial point about the interchangeable concept is completely true. And perhaps this IS supposed to be Death's bunny that mistakenly got used by a magician and is now being retrieved by his rightful owner. I guess my question to Ramy would be, since when does Death have a bunny? I'm not even talking about comedic license here because I have no problem with absurdity (done well), I'm saying there's no establishment of these two characters having any sort of connection. I could even understand the intent if the bunny had maybe a tiny cloak or a scythe or bone hands. ANYTHING to identify it being Death's pet. General carnage doesn't do that.



My take:

The Magician accidentally pulled out the rabbit from "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" - you know, the one that decapitated several knights before they blew it up with the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch. RamyB's comment alludes to this being the case.

Rabbit proceeds to kill EVERYONE.

Death gets called in to reap their souls, and is perplexed that a single rabbit causes the damage.

It's probably true that Death is unnecessary in this picture if you look at it from the POV of concept. But, if he had gone with a rabbit decapitating people, it probably would have been rejected for copyrighted material. Otherwise, if it had been the rabbit eating people, it'd have been rejected for being too close to the aforementioned meat-eating rabbit shirt. By including Death, while it confuses the meaning of the shirt slightly, it allows him to execute his design without risk of it being rejected.

Maybe the sword is magical, and inhabited by an ethereal dragon?

Lots of ways to go with this to tie it to theme. Seems fine to me, and GMV. I hope this prints.



That may well be, but this seems like a stretch. However, I'll wait before hearing what radiomode has to say before saying off-topic just yet...

The curtains are nicely done but the lack of a bottom jaw on Death bothers me.

I'd hardly call that a blood soaked bunny... especially for the carnage.

Makes you wonder how he stayed so neat during the carnage creating... I'm guessing "lobster bib"

Thanks. Maybe I could have showed it a bit taller but I was trying to stay within the realistic boundaries. Either way, it's a side placement, top to bottom in the printable area.

Albino ferret with hair slicked back. :D

And a whatever would represent a hufflepuff just like "Don't mind me... I'm just background filler"

I don't know about that. It all depends upon what you are using as the basis for what you consider "magic". If you look at DnD and other games of their ilk, it's hardly a stretch at all. If you try to force it with Japanese legends, then it's a bit of a stretch - though, the Japanese had a few swords they considered magical in nature as well. The Kusanagi was a sword that controlled wind, and Muramasa blades were thought to be cursed and demonic.

This really captures the magic of nature for me. I like the contrast between the image in the box and the green shirt. I want one!

No, the 8 would still get you rejected. Any numbers, letters, or symbols count as text. I'd advise trying to find a way to rework it for this derby, wait until your 60-day hold has passed and try submitting somewhere else, or hold on to it and maybe it can fit in a future derby.

I love the design, but you really should consider a resub with the darker colors of the draft. I think it would get more votes with this crowd.
