Beautiful calligraphy, appropriate to the art of Wyeth and such.

Re: Pierate


The colors are a little too pastel/faded for me, but what a clever idea to put the patch over the missing pie piece.

Re: Away from me BOOTY!



Rofl. I got a good laugh, but I don't think it will make it past the rejectionator. Also Woot doesn't allow prints on the back... usually. Funny though (:

Nothing better than a snuggly pair of ratties on your shoulder! I'm always psyched to see them in your designs.

This is a little different than my normal, but here is my second entry for the week. If you would like a better Picture here is a mid sized one.

This is the cleverest and most subtle shirt I've seen in a while. GMV!

I wonder if the stereogram will still work when it prints, though.

Re: Not Just for the Injured



It's speculated that eye-patches weren't just for the injured-- they were possibly used to preserve night vision!
Switching the patch from one eye to the other when going from a sunlit deck to the dark underbelly of a ship (or a well-lit cabin to the darkness of night) would have provided instant nightvision... albeit at the expense of depth perception.

it sure does belong, and it will belong until it doesn't belong. that's not for us to say. vote or don't vote, that's where your power lies. personally, i think it's a bit cheeky. i like cheeky.

Re: The Rusty Hook



Wow man, really just wow, this really looks familiar...

Next time try not to be so blatant about using art you didn't draw and then filling it with some crappy jokes.

Re: The PiRAT



Why are people complaining about it not fitting the theme? It's not like it is a random shirt, it is a pun. No it is not a traditional pirate, but what are you guys the shirt.woot police? Leave that up to the actual shirt.woot police. Good Lord.

mightyrain wrote:and those radio towers look like other radio towers too... Oh My Gookie! ... and that pirate has a bandana like other pirates!?! The reason they look familiar is because we both used the same refferance picture most likely. I didn't use that image in mine, look closer, you will see the flags are not the same and the mast is thicker on mine. Mine also has more curve to the rear mast. I used a photograph, not that image.



WOW, chill out dude.

Oh is that a keg? I thought it was a treasure chest... hence shaking the booty...

Re: The PiRAT



The way I approach these derbies is if we can make somebody chuckle, they are more likely to forgive our shortcomings as artists. We are never going to out-draw some of the great artists around here, but perhaps we can try to out-idea them. I always try and think of an alternate way to approach the derbies because going straight in the front door, we get pummeled.

Thanks for all the great comments and for keeping us up in the fog this long...it's quite a thrill.

Sorry you don't like the jokes (which I did come up with, along w/ the concept), and yes, I did use a clipped medallion (which I altered in another derby, as well) that is free for commercial use (from a standard bundle w/ Illustrator).

My understanding of the policy of clip art usage is that it can't be the only graphic involved, and it should be integrated into the work, as a whole. I only had a couple of hours available for this week's derby work, so I had to go fast, instead of starting everything from scratch. I can point you to a number of winning entries from the past few months that integrated royalty-free, commercially available graphics into them.

Yes, I normally like to create my own, but real life sometimes gets into the way between noon Thursday and Friday and I integrate "clip art".

Sorry.

[Edit: I can see at least one, if not two, other shirts in the fog with royalty-free art in them, as well. Technically, I'm guessing most of the text you see in this Derby (and other text-related derbies) is also of the "art you didn't draw" variety. I do try to be careful to use fonts that are "royalty free" for commercial use.

Most artists reuse elements - their own and ones they got from other sources (hopefully royalty-free sources, or with permission of the artists) - and it takes awhile to build up your own library of elements. If you submit "daily" shirts to shirt.woot, they ask you for links to any commercial art or photos you've used directly or indirectly. It's not verboten, they just ask to check your sources.

Again, I'm not trying to "fool" anyone, anymore that the other artists here than occasionally use royalty-free elements. My apologies if you thought I was.
