Re: Shell Shocking


Turtle's spinning, spinning, bouncing, and -woah! - handstand! Waves of pure awesome ripple through the ground and the energy pulsates into the air! Then turtle flips around again, and spins and spins some more...

I think that if I'd submitted it when the derby opened, it would be way up there. Well, I hope at least. But summer is almost here, so university won't get in the way of that anymore. XP

Here's hoping for a surge in turtle dance fever...

Here is an example of trying to cash in on other people's success with subject matter, thus trying to create a meme. -5 on originality in my book.

I had the turtle idea before the derby opened, and the only similarity is in the animal. The subject matter is quite different. But I do appreciate the constructive criticism.

I really like how the greens pop on the black, even if I'm getting tired of dark shirts! GMV anyway.

Thanks for the support! Not much hope for the turtle though. I'm hoping to see Cho sweep, just for the epic history-making-ness of it. =P

Really wish you could have given some detail and depth beyond shape to the turtles. I love turtles! Only one turtle woot to date (thanks Failoan!!), and we need more!!!

Thanks for the kind words! For this particular design I only envisioned silhouettes, but I'll see if I can actually draw a turtle fully next time I decide to submit a shelled friend. Turtles aren't appropriate for every derby, of course. They just happen to work very well for motion. XP

A little too late now, but thanks anyway. Depending on the derby themes, maybe you'll see it again. XP

Of course, so many people are against resubs...
