* Not math that's common knowledge, anyway, other than genotypes and probability (Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, crosses...). You could argue for significant differences between sequences or quantitative genetics or something, but that doesn't come to mind from this.



I do specialize in genetics, specifically quantitative genetics, and there are absolutely no mathematical concepts that this evokes. You can't have Hardy Weinberg without a population. I see none. There are no mathematical constants associated with DNA stability or binding energy between strands because it depends entirely on the amino acid residues in a given strand. This is like drawing any random object, say a cute bunny, on the ground and saying it represents gravity.

Re: Geometrees



The concept is great, but the text ruins it for me. I suggest either ditching the text or incorporating the theme into the text. More "geometrees" might be better too, like a forest.

It appears that the Ss heterozygoes have the dominant phenotype. I think the costume differences are a result of how each turtle was raised.

Yay! I voted for the first one, but I'm glad I came back and checked the derby again before I went to bed and saw the resub. I hope you make it into the fog!

I would totally buy this if you made a version that was just the cow I love it.

Post it. There are many times in which the idea is the same, but the execution is completely different.

I just thought it was visually striking.

This. Obviously "doppler effect" brings to mind "Big Bang theory" but also, this quote from RHPS springs to mind- "you won't find earth people quite the easy mark you imagined, CFDunbar. This machine- it is I suppose, some sort of audio vibratory, sonic molecular transport device?"
As such, it's /GMV. =)

Re: Fluid Dynamics



This is beautiful. The math isn't as obvious either, which is different and refreshing. But mostly beautiful. If I bought this, I would frame it... With my body.

Ha, you think that Gingerbread shirt was original, that it was the first time that da Vinci's Vitruvian Man design was appropriated to something that's not a man? Hardly.

I like this design, very cutely drawn cat, and I like the pencil like style.

I wish I had more of an explanation. "can't print" is a bit open ended. Is the design too complex or is it due to some other issue? I would resubmit if I knew what to fix.

As for the design itself, this is ultra cool. I have not been overly impressed with some of his recent entries, but I love this one.



I wasn't accusing him of plagiarism. I had used one of the stock illustrations the other day and this design made me think of it. Thought maybe he submitted at both sites- I do. No offense intended.

Can't print generally means due to copyright restrictions. Regardless of how they feel about the design, the characters are copyrighted.

Edit: Why is this posting here? Oh well.

Ummm... It says no text-only designs (which this is not), and it says that this is a hermit crab in the title.

That's why I worked on red shirts the past couple times (the color is harder for me to work with) and why this one has lots of halftones going on. If I can't win the derby I might as well use it to make my art better.

@noble aborigineemeyer (mommy): thanks for sounding like a huge hippie
*edit: lol it censored your name.*

@citizencoyote: lol, kthulu reference. At first I thought you left me a word jumble to solve.

@walmazan: I always appreciate your vote!



I want my new screen name to be aborigineemeyer!

There's a youtube video that explains it, here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zWivbG0RIo

If that doesn't work....just search "The Golden Mean" and it should pop up

I think the design is delightful, even with the eyes, even though I'm not a pop culture fan either. Somehow you managed to keep the delicacy of the design with the eyes there.

But why would this be any more copywrite infringing than the cookie monster shirt that's sold so well?

I actually started off with a homage to Big Bang Theory, NOT a Zebra but while researching Doppler Effect (so that I had a working knowledge of what I was drawing) I came up with this idea.
It has been so long since I last saw RHPS I can't remember my lines.... I will now wear the paper bag of shame.
Thanks for the +1 Cephy!
