TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Thank you. I really REALLY wanted to add some Elvish script to this (kind of a circular/ovular bit above it all), but I vaguely recall other entries in "NO TEXT" weeks being rejected when they included fictional text/symbols.

I love the detail work here, but I feel like it would play better on white or gray the image sharply ends on the black. Even a yellow shirt with brown detail (white becomes yellow).

Nice work regardless.

Oh yeah!

I already have a taker for this if it prints. ^_^ I hope it does, the execution is brilliant.

Very cool. It's got a little Invisible Man action to it as well.

Thanks for the input! As this is my first entry into the derby, I appreciate any feedback I get. I'll look into editing the image for different hues and designs and see if it makes sense to resubmit.

Re: Tell Tale



I think the case here that has to be made is that in pretty much any anthology with Poe's works, it is listed as a short story, not a poem. It's more that it is commonly recognized as a short story in the cannon. I think if it were a less common work of fiction, it would slide through pretty easily.

But, it's up to the rejectionator, not me. I wish you the best of luck no matter what happens!

Re: Fire and Ice - Robert Frost




Was hoping someone would do this poem, as it's a long-time personal favourite (and even used in the signature on my regular email address.) Thanks for taking it on.

I don't know if I can vote for the design, however. It just doesn't grab me, or fully capture the spirit behind the poem imho. Sorry.

That means diddly.

In the "Year You Were Born" derby the year was to be the title of the work. Such was not the case for 50% of the entries and they slipped on through.

Does the poem title need to be in the shirt title?

Thank you!

The version on black reads a little better. I think my brain will explode if I try adding a little color to the black and white version, though. I am probably going to just finish it into a real painting and post it on DeviantART. I had a ton of fun drawing it.

Photoshop is being mean, though. I don't think it should lag with 6g of ram. Keeps crashing on bigger files too. >_<

Re: How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.

SOOO adorable Lucky! I can't decide which bunny I like the most, I keep changing my mind (spaghetti bunny! ice cream bunny! salad bunny! soup bunny! bunny in pot! taco bunny! salad bunny again! hehe), they are all so darn cute! Wish it were on a brighter color though, I could see it on baby blue/grass green, or even kelly green.

Vote!

Re: Tell Tale



A lovely design, but "The Tell-Tale Heart" is most definitely a short story. The various types of poetry aside, it reads nothing like Poe's poems.

Re: Happiness



John needs to meet Susie!

Galoshes
Susie's galoshes
Make splishes and sploshes
And slooshes and sloshes,
As Susie steps slowly
Along in the slush.

They stamp and they tramp
On the ice and concrete,
They get stuck in the muck and the mud;

But Susie likes best to hear
The slippery slush
As it slooshes and sloshes
And splishes and sploshes
All round her galoshes!

Yes resubmit with a different color shirt. I think even if you blurred the edges it would help it on the shirt but different color would help it.

Love it besides that!

Re: Fire and Ice - Robert Frost



As usual, excellente execution. I think that the cool thing about poems is that every person can interpret them in their own way with no right or wrong form of doing it. I happen to love your interpretation.

I'm hungry now... :D

Fried or grilled or stuffed in a bun,
or maybe in some soup.
A salad, some sushi, a taco, spaghetti,
perhaps I'll just have dessert!

Re: The Rose That Grew From Concrete ( 2pac Shakur)



I,m a big fan of 2pac, and this design are based on the poem of the same name.

The Rose that Grew from Concrete

Did you hear about the rose that grew
from a crack in the concrete?
Proving nature's law is wrong it
learned to walk with out having feet.
Funny it seems, but by keeping it's dreams,
it learned to breathe fresh air.
Long live the rose that grew from concrete
when no one else ever cared.
Tupac Shakur

6 colors on black. Hope you like it

Re: Evolution -Langdon Smith



This was so beautiful in my mind.

I posted the poem in the pre-Derby thread...
so I had to submit this crud-filled design..

I will say, it may look simple but it is the most work I have ever done for an entry.

(somebody tell me I'm improving, please)

I still don't have the color thing figured out, either. 6 total in use.
