Wouldn't this kind of be like owning a black shirt? Or is it just my computer?

Re: Redder Eyed Star-Spawn (resub)



Love the design, it's awesome... but how does it relate to the "red" theme? His eyes?

Immediate psychedic flashback: Arthur Brown the artist, 'Fire' the song. Around 1967? Good shirt, the mental association is mine.

If you are a demon born from Fire, you'll always be very thirsty. So having a Kool jar of juice near at all times, it's a most!

I like it because it's simple. It's an actual T-Shirt design. A lot of the things are here are amazing, but I'd never wear them on a T-shirt. This is good.

Agree. He's super cute but changing his eye color to red doesn't really make it red-themed.

Re: Cardinal



Nice! I bet this will do well in Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio, Virginia and West Virginia (where the Cardinal is the state bird).

The Red Panda population is estimated to be less than 10,000. They are close to becoming an endangered species. Even with protection their numbers are still falling due to deforestation and illegal poaching.

People say I'm the life of the party, 'cause I tell a joke or two.

Although I might be laughing loud and hearty, deep inside I'm blue.

Not to mention Missouri and Arizona (for sports reasons).

I have to agree with Travisdoesmath. I think it's very generous to say Ackbar is red. He's brown with some orange thrown in there. I'd say burnt orange at best, and not even close to the shade used in this design.





That he's kinda sorta reddish is the only connection to the theme, and that's a stretch for me even by the wide standards of color-based themes. If this is on theme, someone could take a basketball, make it red with no other context, and call it on theme. Based on the rejections so far, simply taking something that's not necessarily red and making it so is not keeping on theme.

That aside, I'm really, truly weary of "It's a Trap!" as a meme. While this is definitely a clever take on it, it's reached "The Cake is a Lie" levels for me where almost nothing with it has much appeal to me.

Anyway, I have nothing against you or your work, Apelad, and I don't think this is a bad design at all. I just don't think it's on theme.

stingray69 wrote:You could say that about most of the designs in this derby. I mean if strawberries were blue, then there wouldn't be anything connecting them to the theme so the fact that strawberries are red is incidental to the design. The fact is Ackbar is red (reddish enough, anyway, I think) and that's why it works in this derby.

On another note, nice touch with the death star there. It may be a Star Wars design, but at least it's not just a cheap reference.



In the blue theme, featuring something blue front and center was enough, and that should be the case here. However, I don't think taking something that's not really red and making him cranberry (which is absolutely not his color) counts.

+1 to this comment. Someone even submitted a Darth Toad right after this one. . . . I don't think anything would be hurt if (at least) a certain video-game franchise and a certain science-fiction franchise were banned.

It's a very, very diverse alien species, color-wise. As I said, there are even blue and grey ones in the ever-expanding canon.

This isn't cranberry. Cranberry's the darker color.

Ah, my bad. Looks like I need to adjust my monitor.

Anyway, all that aside, I would like to reiterate that this design is much better than the typical Star Wars reference. Ackbar as a hobo is quite funny and pretty charming.

This may be the best pop-culture reference in the derby.

+1 for the shirt, although personally I would've called it "O solo mio."

Re: Caught



You might be a bit outside the printable area and some women might not appreciate a hand on the chest area. Otherwise cute interpretation of the theme.

EDIT: If you can convince me this was a red-headed girl wearing a red bikini I might be persuaded. The "red" right now looks like an afterthought.

Re: Redder Eyed Star-Spawn (resub)



Thanks for the comments guys. It is my understanding that cthulu had red eyes? Would red eyes not be as on theme as many of the other designs?
