Giraffes are very oddly shaped. The more you look at them, the weirder they are.

JadenKale wrote:Perhaps it's not the same idea, but if you look at the sunsets on the top, it's the same shape. He basically tossed a gradient on the new one and trimmed back the rays from the first piece. It's pretty much the same as the one from the summer. It's a sunset silhouette reflecting over water. It's not EXACT, but he's reusing the idea he did only a few months earlier and printed with last time.



I'm going to have to side with those who are saying they aren't the same design. Ramyb tends to reuse general ideas over and over and over again. So yes, both designs are spherical and located on the chest of the shirt. But that doesn't mean that he just rehashed the Aztec design and slapped on a new name. Ramyb just uses the same few formats because he isn't really that creative.

There are plenty of legitimate faults to many of his designs, people can't go out of their way to make up something to complain about. Because when that happens, then all the blind Ramyb supporters can point at all the complaints, even valid ones, and say that we're just trying to bash on Ramyb.

Very cool - I just wish he didn't look like he had cataracts in the preview - hopefully less creepy in print?

Re: Serengeti



Well,you would get thrown out for a violation of theme,but this image would work alot better without anything directly representational (i.e loose the giraffe,tree and stuff under the tree)

No, seriously. How do you think he ended up "Fat Elvis"?

Thanks for the kind words Spiritgreen, walmazan, uniique and Andy47240. It's always great to have compliments from fellow artists when trying to gauge whether a design will strike a chord with the Woot audience.
The idea was spontaneous, but putting it together ended up being more involved than anticipated.

This is SO cool! I saw some of the comments on this in the pre-derby thread - your changes are subtle, but added up to a strong improvement, I think!

You're right - I don't think I would have been able to put my finger on it, but it is very Charley Harper-esque! Cool design; GMV.

I figured the meerkat was just planning to push the little guy out of the way and steal his (bug) lunch! ;)

Re: A Walk In The Park



Totally totally randomly awesome. Randomness by itself is meaningless, but combine it with a rhino and hippo and it moves into the realm of incredible incredibleness. Next time I find myself standing on the back of any animal as I ride out of the sunset I will salute you.
