This isn't a critique on this particular design, but conflicting light sources in a drawing that contains a single figure, aren't a good thing. Even cartoons have to follow some very basic rules.

Yup. Rainn Wilson has been my t-shirt model at Threadless for quite some time now, but I have been using him for everything lately. He does the job well

Re: Aye!




To me, this very obviously would be considered a parody of pop culture. How is this in the fog when other completely original submissions aren't?

Pretty sure this will be rejected for Pop Culture. If a Facebook riff isn't Pop Culture, then the rules mean nothing.

Might as well have a ninja, too.

Re: Aye!



Fun fact: one of the language options in Facebook is English (Pirate). The "Like" command becomes "Arr, this be pleasin' to me eye." So maybe "Arr" would be a better choice.


<- uses Facebook in English (Pirate). Arr!

Took me a minute to get the joke. Maybe add some "boozer bubbles" to the pirate? Otherwise, clever.

Be still my heARRrrrrt!

+1 for simplicity
+1 for execution; The placement of the eyepatch rolled into a brilliant type design, I just love!!!
+5 for surprising me; I would never have guessed that this was designed by you. I'm so used to your trademark style and love that you chose to switch it up this week.

GMV!

Seems a little harsh? I don't see anything wrong with the lighting.

I'm actually really digging this entry. I love how you always have some kind of background to bring out the picture. I'm also always amazed at your halftone usage, you can't even tell they are there. Whenever I try to use them they stick out pretty nastily.

I just gotta know how you manage to grab that number one slot so often... I've tried beating you (not this week) and have never gotten close.

Re: No Escape



Thanks so much for the comments everyone! I've sat on this idea for a long, long while now. Im really glad to have a derby that it finally fits into ok. ^_^

I've been practicing a bit more with shading thanks to a few helpful artists here. Im usually super scared of halftones, but Im trying to face the monster that they are and best them. I sure appreciate the positive feedback! :D

Re: Pimped Out Pirate Pet



i agree with the color choice comment above. i think it would look better on a tan-ish colored shirt, something that makes you think "sand". love the idea, though.

Re: A Crabby Pirate



This pirate's a bit crabby, he doesn't want anyone to touch his treasures! I had fun trying to make as many colors as I could with just the 6.

Check out my Food design please!
