Be honest. You've been this dude. Or seen this dude. It hurts. But makes for some kick butt youtube videos!

I love it. Is that blood coming out of his ear?

This is funny. A lot of work went into it obviously, the stairs are done pretty cool too.

I was that dude, yes. Except I am a female. And I was wearing a skirt. And heels. And it wasn't stairs. It was a parking lot. And it wasn't because of a skateboard. It was all the wine from dinner.

The tooth part is accurate, though. Boy am I glad that's not on tape anywhere.

Not sure if you should post that? This slightly-nsfw-flowchart will help.

It's supposed to be an earring... but blood is good too.

Ouch. Yeah, I've done that too back in the day (it was steps, but think twisted ankle on an uneven stair), but thankfully my teeth stayed in. Lacerated my ear pretty bad tho.

great details! I love the grass stairs, very cool use of shirt color.

someday I'll get a SkekTek shirt...

Thanks. But I don't think it'll be this derby... I love that it came out like I wanted though.

Maybe I'm crazy but this isn't the style that I'm used to from you. Great job though! It is cool and totally has my vote . Should have been on orange though

There are 10 types of people: those who know binary, and those who don't.

I absolutely LOVE the polka-dot boxers. That's the greatest touch, and the iPod... this hurts to look at but it's very imaginative and funny in an "Oh, no!" kind of way.

Yeah, but I haven't seen an orange come within sniffing of the top 10. Yeah, this is my normal sketching style when I'm doing people. Don't do people that often on shirts. Too bad this derby seems to be overrun by resubs from previous derbies.

Touche. I did change the entry, and entered it after I noticed tons of resubs, but yes. However, THIS entry is original, and the votes aren't as good as I hoped while some resubs are kicking tail. So what does tell designers?

So, do people like this better, or the orange one? Voting aside...

I like the orange better myself. it feels more like he fell on something hard - the green feels like he fell onto grass.

very cool concept, either way. were you inspired by your own experience, or did you see someone face plant recently?

I got these skateboarders outside my window that do all sorts of tricks (attempt at least) on the stairs nearby. So I was inspired by them. The wipeout, well, that's a concoction but I've fell on my face a few times to know that it hurts pretty bad. And I loved the arched back look. Can't believe this is not up in the top 20 though... I worked hard on getting the look right. Sigh.

I personally think, that if it was a lil more clean sketched looking, and if the stairs were made outta dots, i think it would have looked a lil better, concept and idea is fantastic ttho! it already has my vote, shame it didnt do better.

I once ate a cricket.
