You are right!
I like your feedback
thank you very much.

This one appeals to me more than your other one simply because it tells more of a story. You can imagine all sorts of situations that have this as the end result. Nice work regardless, and your art style is awesome. Keep up the good work, hope to see more in future derbies!

(And yes, you never quite know what's going to hit with woot voters so don't get discouraged. )

Would have been a lot better without the border, imho.

Really nice!

I am not to fond of grey though. Red/yellow/orange on black, or for that matter grey on black) and I would be more likely to buy it. But still, worth a vote

SHIRT!!!
I am hoping "less is more" with this design. I enjoyed the characters but I had a tough time figuring out where to place them on the SHIRT! It was suppose to say shirt. Hahaha I might have forgot the "R" and it put all that pony crap in its place. haha go figure!

I think this is really pretty, but I think I would have preferred it centered on the shirt.

Your legitimate faults need to be objective for anyone to take you seriously.

Nice shirt. Keep up the good work.



My complaints need to be objective? How is wanting a design that people can actually see the detail of not objective? But I can accept the fact that not everyone will share my opinion about that. Although, the fact that this shirt is suppose to be about balance, but the two halves of the circle aren't even close to being proportionate isn't really something that can be disputed as acceptable.

Re: Afraid of the Dark



Purple is such an under appreciated color, and I'm grateful for you choosing it for your design!

I've been consistently loving your entries in the derbies as of late (Underground in the Hipster derby being my favorite so far), your concepts and art style are right up my alley. I sincerely hope to see a print form you very soon.

This is terrific! I like the hyenas, too.

The Chase (from the Hipster Derby) would have been a good one for this derby, too.

Your art is great fun. I look forward to seeing more.

Thought I'd provide links to the actual reference photos I used:

Eye | Giraffe | Tree

I didn't alter the pose for the giraffe much except for the direction of approach, which seemed to work better with the design.

The two halves are actually almost identical- I broke the symmetry in a few places to make it a little more visually interesting and to push the fact that it isn't an exact reflection. Size-wise, though, they are nearly a perfect match- that was something I made sure of while working on the design. The top half has an extra "glow" around it, since it is illuminated by sunlight, while the bottom half blends into the darkness, but I don't see that as an issue. The design may not be to your liking, but I designed it this way because it is the visual I wanted to create and I don't think I failed in bringing my vision to life. As for the complaint that it will just be a blob from far away, just how far are you talking? Even from thumbnail size I can at least make out that the design shows a bright sun on top and a night sky on the bottom, as well as the silhouettes of trees and animals. That's about as large as the design would be from across a large room.


Anyway, thanks everyone for all the kind words I put a lot of time and thought into this design and went through many iterations before reaching this as my final product, and I'm glad people are enjoying the outcome.

Oh my goodness I think my heart just skipped a beat.. This is one of the best designs I've seen. Ever. Plus, my middle name means Lion in Arabic so this is a perfect shirt for me. Kudos to you.
