+1

of course similar designs exist! we live in postmodern times.
this design is much better in every way (i wouldn't wear the original even if it was free).

maybe i should quit voting here. all it does is make me yearn for the great shirts that could have been.

Seriously? Dude, pirates have to get their fake hands and legs somewhere. And I say good on Peg-Leg Pete for running an upscale stablishment.

Someone please help me out - how could this possibly be offensive to folks with prosthetics?

On second thought... no. This is my style and I'm not changing it. There's nothing wrong with her face. It has character and it offers something other than sickningly cute. She's smiling. She's not sad at all. There's one style here and it's mine. But thanks anyway.

Re: Some Translation Required



Though I think it's a bit text heavy I think it's a cute idea. I would have preferred there to be a bit more custom art on it and less clipart, to give it a more personal, unique feel to it.

Re: [url=http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=61031]Yo Ho Ho



Clever but I read it yo & ho ho, then saw the bottle (I'm on my phone and in the thumbnail it looked like half a top hat and mask)

Yup.

I think you may have taken that the wrong way. I'm not saying change your style, I'm saying the styles you used in this piece don't match each other. You rendered the face in an organic/ cartoony fashion while other elements are angular/retro.

This piece, for example, shows a cohesive style and works very well.
Same with this one:


I'm not saying draw a pretty pirate lass, I'm saying draw an ugly pirate lass with the same hand you drew her boots/(treasure) chest/other details.

HTH.

Re: Hook Shot



A couple of friendly pointers...

First, you need to make sure your thumbnail artwork is square. Otherwise, it will be squashed.

Second, this is not a woot tee color. That means this will likely be rejected. You can fix, and resubmit.

good luck.

Re: Peg-Leg Pete's



I've seen a few shirts in this derby that while I think are well done, I wish that a little more time had been put into them. This is one of them. I wish there was more of a graphical element other than simply a watermarked image resting in the background. When I look at this the 'star' of the shirt is the text. I just wish that the star was something a little more artistic.

Re: Classic Bust



You have more than the maximum number of colors. Might want to clean that up and resubmit. I'd also suggest working the design so that it isn't so boxy.

I prefer it as is. Your way feels like more work to say. But I might be crazy.

THANK YOU for explaining yourself. You can probably tell that I thought about it for some time before I replied the second time. Seriously, thank you. I see what you mean. I started adding random strokes on the girl, but I was running out of time. Not that it matters... nobody votes for me anyway!

I mean, illustrator strokes to make it more angular.

Re: Big Dream Little Bottle



I really like this design. Here's hoping we all get the chance to pick up a few of these shirts. I can dream, can't I? Oh right, the shirt says I can.

I took a risk saying what I thought and clearly that all backfired. I'm not some "troll" just trying to stir things up. I'm someone with an opinion and when I tried to express that everything just fell apart. Guess I wasn't clear enough or I really did read into things too much. Whatever it is, I'm sorry that this became such a mess. Now, please disregard everything I've said and just leave me alone.



I am not and was not trying to pile on. I am trying to give you a better perspective and way to criticize in the future.

Some woot back history:
The way you responded to MR is reminiscent of what things were like in threads 1-3 years ago. When any negative comment (constructive or not) or link to a similar shirt had fans reply along the lines of: 'your just a big meanie who can't draw and is jealous, this art is the best ever and you want it to fail just help yourself print- I'm never voting for another thing you enter (or if they weren't an artist- any artist you praise) ever again!!!'
One artist with particularly rabid fans wound up getting banned for blatant IP theft, since then most of the drama has died down.

Welcome to woot.

Looks ok to me. If the people who are telling you this haven't purchased anything from woot, those links are not visible.
