Keeps things a mystery... shirt.woot would lose some of it's charm if you knew what was going to print ahead of time.

It also cuts down on voting games...

I agree. I think this should be rejected as "similar shirt exists".

Thanks for the props ochopika. I did most of this artwork by hand and then did a high resolution scan. The original drawing was very small like 4"w x 3"h so you can see every mark when I have it blown up. I wasn't too happy with my designs this week. Thanks again and I absolutely love your dragon shirt. Great work!

Re: Queen Bee



This is super incredibly late, but I thought I'd still give it a shot. I based this off the Grimm fairy tale of the Queen Bee in which >spoilers< Simpleton (an awful horrible name to give your child) receives help from ants, ducks, and a queen bee in order to win the hand of a princess and inherit a kingdom. Yay!

Eleventh-hour, but what the heck. The idea was cute and wouldn't get outta my head.
Six colors: black, white, green, pink, lavendar and yellow. On Slate.

Agreed, the lines on it are perfect. My eye is also drawn to the firewal and the shading there. Great job! Sweet.

It took me a few seconds, and then I realized that although you clearly took time to shape them well, her legs are disproportionate to the rest of her body.

Maybe she is Italian. My thighs are almost the size of my midsection. Small waist, wide hips, it's the ideal.

If I had the ring, I'd give it to the dragon.Maybe he'd take me for a ride. I'll buy this shirt next week.

I like the artwork. Cute with a bit of scary.



They've rejected all other Alice in Wonderland-related designs, so at least for the sake of this derby, they're NOT considering it a fairy tale.

Edit: makes a whole lot more sense with the word "not".

I actually only used half tone twice in this 1 for the window and the other was on the shadow on the ground everything else as far as shading was all me. And Thank you.

paigeg wrote:Sadly, I can't access your larger file from here (damned site filters!). But as to the color choices - it all looks OK except for the Sea Hare itself. I'm not familiar with the critters (apparently they're mollusks), but if you want to represent it as an actual hare, maybe a blue-grey would convey both hare and sea, and pop better against the shirt. Then if you still have colors left, use a bit of blue or blue-green to set off the waves... Just a suggestion.



That is what I was thinking but I used 6 colors and couldn't decide what to get rid of. I suppose I could halftone the yellow and blue to make green and then I could use one more color (grey) but I'm afraid the halftones would 1)look goofy 2) the resulting green would be kinda brownish since the yellow is in the redish-yellow spectrum.
So what color would you get rid of?

I think the sea-hare is too dark either way.

And, without a larger image to see, I'm going to take a guess that you have gradients making up that glow and the moon. Woot's rejectionator will get you for that. Check the submission guidelines. You'll need to convert them to halftones.



Thanks for the advice.
I'm still new to this and pretty confused about the halftones. I tried to get around it by using the Illustrator gradient, but goofed up someplace. I switch back some with PhotoShop, where I'm more comfortable.

Thanks, quetza

Its funny, the design used to look really flat and I didn't know what to do. I was about to quit on it when I accidentally used the yellow instead of the eraser on one part. That's how I make most of my good designs, if only I could do it on purpose...hmmm.

Re: [url=http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=55138]Castle



doing halftones is pretty easy. Just google search a tutorial (or a couple). It is just another filter.

When they say that illustrator uses can use gradients in the guidelines they mean someone who does there entire submission in a vector program (i.e. illustrator). You can't switch back and forth and still get the gradients rule waived.

as for the design itself. Try integrating the shirt itself more, square designs never really do well or look good. Have some transparencies that use the shirt color to your advantage.

I have never done graphics where I needed to do the colors all on separate layers and all that and I never figured out how to do that. Gotta love the tutorials where they show you a blue square and a red triangle and show you how to separate colors when obviously my design is much more complex than that. Oh well. I guess I need to go educate myself further.



It is always best to separate colors in layers while you are working rather then retroactively doing it. When I'm working I usually have about 30 layers going if not more (all set to transparent base). When you get close to completion you can just merge all the ones that contain the same color. Lemme know if you have some specific questions.

You are required to have made one purchase from any woot site before your little voting links show up. Helps keep people from creating multiple accounts to vote for shirts.

You've got a nice, painterly style here. You are right that the colors need to pop more. What I would do is leave the halftones in the background as they look good there. Make the animals solid, with maybe parts of the highlights and shadows halftones.

The yellow in the background does look good, but you could play around with the color. There would be more contrast if it were closer to the shirt color, and the animals were a more contrasting color. The brown shirt is very dark and warm, so the highlights and shadows should be very cool (white or dark blue/green).

The highlights and shadows on the animals could also be amplified a bit. I try to make my lights and darks more bold than I think they should be, then when I'm done it usually looks better than I thought it would.

Here is one of my brown-shirt designs where the colors kinda worked (not that I'm a color master or anything, it's just the only example I can think of now): tree thing
Hope that is helpful and not too much text.

Are you capable of making anything that is wholly yours stylistically? Dr. Seuss is one thing, but even your fellow derby artists? And please do us all a favor and not reply back saying that "you've never seen this entry". We can only be fooled so much.



Why has this not garnered more attention? It is the exact same composition and idea. The only difference is the manga style.
