Re: Shell Competition


great design. Love the shading. I'm so glad I bought an olive shirt from woot already, so I know how nice the color is in person! This is a very wearable shirt that says "greed" without saying it so loud that you'd have to explain it to everyone.

I'm collecting beach t-shirts, and this is perfect for going to our (hermit-crab over-populated) beach!

& the Gaggle of Girls; so many shirts, so little space in the dresser!

Can you post a larger and less compressed picture of the image? I pulled all these colors out of it in Paint.

Yep, I checked it out. It's cool. The print file is only six colors.

Excellent design. A+ Would vote again.

I really like the colors used. It's #1 on the hotness, so heres hoping it can make into the top 3.

On the shirt images .. many artists resize the image using "smart size" or equivalent ... which will resize it, but add more colors and shading so that the image still looks great.

I would also like to see a blown up version. I do understand that you are only using 6 colors, but I'd like to see your method -- it looks great.

Bravo, gets my vote.

VOTE!

Definately top-3 material. I think I was 5th to vote last night, but figured it would be a hard climb to the top -- at this pace though, there's hope! Well done kp!

The small image is probably costing you votes. The higher quality jpg you posted is great

Wonderful work...gmv...but is it "greed" or "risk management"?

Re: Shell Competition


Based on the current voting momentum it looks like this derby will finish tomorrow at: 1st- penguin, 2nd- pig, 3rd/4th- thief or hermit crab
so, if you like this better than the thief design and voted for both, take back your other vote

Or everyone could take back the votes from the penguins. Sorry cho, but you've won so much and we've had penguins, share the wealth. Let the crab get some love.

I want that hermit crab so much, I actually did this. Who am I kidding, I've done it before...

Please vote for this shirt!!

And I'm not even including the ones that were gifts!

Re: Shell Competition


Thanks everyone for the kind words! I feel bad if you're taking away votes from the other guys. I've voted for 3 of the shirts in the fog and I'm hoping to buy some.

If only the hermit crab didn't have so many shells on his back, maybe he could climb the ranks a little faster... greedy little bugger.

Honestly....the first shirt I've seen in this derby that I'd actually wear. I like a lot of the other art, but not to parade about in. Thanks for the hard work!!!!

I love the steady, resolute, uphill crawl into the fog. Here's hoping that crab makes you some serious clams, and by clams I mean money.

And by crab I mean skill as an artist.

very good idea for this derby. In those nature videos these little guys are so funny, competing over shells

Don't be sexist. Broads hate that.

Just a heads up, check the website on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday at 1:00 A.M EST when the new shirt goes up. Because if this shirt is in the top 3, its likely to sell out in 1 or 2 hours. So if you wait till you wake up in the morning its more than likely going to be sold out and you'll have to pay $5 more the next day.
