If you put this shirt in a gift shop at the Grand Canyon it would probably sell a dozen or more shirts a day at $30 a shirt.

Amazing design idea and implementation.

Re: If It Looks Like a Duck



If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it's probably a platypus trying to pull the wool over your eyes

I too am in the same boat, never seen the movie, and this is exactly what I thought of when I saw the shirt. It just seems to say "SWISS army knives just don't cut it in the down under."

But I also understand the pop-culture rule too, and while it can be vague, it is there for a reason.

I really like the placement and color choices, by the way, very appealing. Though the beer bottle opener I would have made just a slight bit larger in proportion to the handle of the knife.

Re: Blue Ringed Death revised



I removed the alleged text. replaced 'X's with sphincter looking spots; err, I mean, STARS. Left the blue rings as they are the natural pattern of the octopi and aren't rejected on other designs.

It's not looking like it's going to make it to the FOG, which is unfortunate because I think this is hilariously adorable. But yeah, I wanted you to know that I very much appreciate this design because, IMO, it is full of win.



Thank you so much for commenting! I really, REALLY appreciate your thoughtfulness and kind words. Your comment really made my day. Thanks!

Re: Australian Army Knife



Although this is a pop culture reference it also hold quite a bit of humor in the character of those living in the outback. I enjoy the fact that there are only two things on the knife: the bottle opener (for beer of course) and the knife! And as much as I love this shirt, I feel as though it's lacking something in the background.

The light green against the darker green even looks grey at a glance.

I wish I could see a bigger view of this. On the surface, it looks like a really nice dot-art take. Not sure there are Aboriginal themes represented, tho. Bigger please?

Re: Walkin' About



I was just scrolling through, wondering if someone would do 'walkabout'. I think the actual 'journey' is missing, though. Assuming you subscribe to Walkabout as a rite of passage, and not just a bit o' vacay, there needs to be some indication of that rite.

Sadly, this might be my last derby entry for awhile, depending on how long it takes for me to get a new laptop. Mine barely held on long enough for me to finish this entry, and now it just doesn't seem to want to live anymore. (If anyone wants to PM a recommendation of a new laptop to me, that would be cool. And tablets too, while I'm at it, since the one I own is so old that it's what cavemen used to draw on cave computers with.)



One of the best in the derby, no question. I hope you get your gear sorted out. Really, any current gen laptop with a decent graphics card and RAM will work. Oh, and good screen res. I'm sure there are folks here who could supply specifics. This might help, though I can't speak to what your actual budget might be. As for tablet, I seem to recall Wacom's Bamboo being the pretty universal tablet of choice around here. You'd have to have others weigh in on model - I don't have one!

Re: Pointillizard



Great job. I have a hand-painted didge (urk! HAD! Just had to give it up for reasons of space - we're moving.) and the colors here are dead-on. The style is really well-rendered, too. Good on ya, mate. I was hoping for some nice dot art designs, and this balances true-to-style with sellable. GMV.

Maybe your 'same-old' is our 'exotic'. Or maybe many folks are missing the boat. But I agree, this one has a great feel that is appealing on its own, and does a great job of evoking the spirit of aboriginal art.
Well done!

I respectfully disagree. The subtle contrast with the soft orchid color to give it depth works for me. I have a bit of an issue with the hard, straight line along the carapace, and the face that the tail seems to come out somewhat left of center. But those things dont' stop me from giving this a vote - nicely conceived design.

Re: On the Back of a Turtle



Maybe I'm actually seeing more than is here, but I really see some depth and a very, very nice take on the real spirit of aboriginal art, a less 'dotty' take notwithstanding. The turtle carries the world in so many cultures. The arms/legs wrapping over and around, that almost seem to make a face, as well; the frog as a symbol on its own plus looks like the nose...
Like I said, I could be imagining it but, I think this goes farther to touch on the heart of aboriginal art than most other similar subs.

On the other hand... subjectively, I'm just sick of seeing them.



This coming from someone with "assassin" in their user name.

Re: We Are



Excellent. While this sub from a past derby paid tribute to the pigment-blowing style of prehistoric art, yours is dead-on this theme, and evokes the style beautifully. And I love the title/theme - We Are. Nice.

Re: The outback



Nicely done haltone color graduations. This pops really well. I can't argue it's the most original design here, but definitely one of the most eye-grabbing.
Be careful, ramyb - you seem to be slowly breaking your 'predictable' mold and surprising us! Good job!

Nice design, and I do like it on the brown. It kinda misses on the true dot art feel, but the overall design is really cool. I'm torn as to whether the distressing is a good/bad thing. Flipping a coin...

I agree. Would have been interesting if they added some background of leaves like one was going through the brush.

Re: Kookaburra In The Old Gum Tree



why does shirt.what say this design has been removed? I find that a bit counter productive if someone was wanting to vote for my or others designs via that site. I know their not affilliated with woot but it has been a source for many artists and voters here at woot. So anybody know what the deal may be?
