Out of all the shirts in this derby, this is the only one I'd want to win.

Re: The Sad Wittle Rock...



I like the idea here, but the sad rock, being such a dark grey color, *completely* gets lost against the navy shirt. It would be easier to see if you made the rock a lighter shade of grey or chose a slightly less dark shirt color - maybe royal blue or slate would work?

This a riff off of another entry of mine earlier in the evening. It needs some love too.



I thought of that news story as soon as I saw the full design. Nice "current events" allusion!

Re: NERDBOT



Ha!! This idea is hilarious - I love that he transforms into a SmartCar! I'm sorry to say, though, that I hate it on this shirt color. I'm normally a big fan of the grass green shirt, but it's really clashing with the colors you used here.

..thank you...that's how i felt at the moment, so i decided it might be best to deal with it by wearing that emotion artistically on my sleeve...

I really like to concept of the shirt. Btw, it's not evolving, it's just metamorphosis.

Thanks for clarifying that, Diana. The other day when I first saw this, I almost commented that it was not very on topic, because I thought it was a regular badger (which wouldn't be out of place at Hogwarts, duh!). Then I saw ramy's first comment about the honey badger and it all made sense...

Honey badger definitely don't fit in at Hogwarts, but HONEY BADGER DON'T CARE!

ramyb wrote:I always apply them at the same angle (67.5 degrees)- for backgrounds and solid colored areas I use a round halftone, and for shading I use a line halftone. I find that keeping it uniform makes things look a lot cleaner in general.

Here are some closeups so you can see how it works:



The nice thing about it is that, when printed, it doesn't look like dots or lines but sort of "blends" to some degree with the color underneath to create a really convincing shading effect where the halftone is almost imperceptible

(edit)- I went back through the show us your woot thread to see if there were any photos from other times I used this technique. The best example I could find there was from my school design, where I used this to shade all the turtle shells- the colors are a little bright from the flash in this photo, but you can clearly see how the shading comes out really smooth looking, as though another color were used.

Line halftones especially, when properly placed, can really play tricks on your eyes and create great shading effects without getting excessively small.



Dude, thanks for explaining some tone stuff for us. I've found that no matter what I do I can't get my halftones to look nice. :{ This is extremely helpful.

Zagazoo wrote:beautiful, I know what you mean. Unless it's a derby like the last "watercolors" one I feel like the entries that go for the less humorous approach and go instead for beautiful get less votes. Kinda frustrating, though that has just been my observation



yes...i'm new to submitting designs on woot, but that seems like a fair observation...not that voters here don't appreciate non-humor themes or anything, but there's a fine line in t-shirt design for what looks good on paper, and what looks good ENOUGH to walk around sported across your chest or back...and sometimes it can be fairly difficult to hit on the latter...

(i should've went with three cartoon faces and a detailed portrait i guess...lol)

Re: Three's A Crowd, Buddy...



My description didn't go through, darn it. Well, let's try it again. I guess it's up to the viewer to decide who doesn't belong here...

Is it Mr. SpaceMan interrupting a secret rendezvous?

Is it The Amorous Alien who has come between the duo of Comsonauts?

Or is it Ms. SpaceLady who the home-wrecking hussy?

This is a design I submitted to a previous derby quite a while ago, so if that is something that is not allowed, I will be more than happy to pull it if someone would just let me know. Thanks!

Be prepared for it to be "rejected" as it's not on a t-shirt template... best to just redo and resubmit... and why is it so distorted?

Is the grey of the penguin/lion shading the same grey as the shirt? I can't tell if it's the same or it's a seventh color. I hope it's not an extra color

Also, this shirt makes me wonder what the actual height ratios are of the Valkyrie, soundwave and a gundam. I think it must go: Soundwave, Valkyrie, Gundam.



you know that asimo is probably twice as tall as it should be judging by the scale of the valkyrie cockpit.

this is maybe too otaku for most wootsters. i gotta get some of these made. ... after 90 days of course.
