Re: Stop Motion
Breakdancing turtle anyone?
Edit: actually, it's a tortoise.
Originally from the motion derby. Changes include the colours on the rings, the addition of halftones, the removal of the before/after turtles and the shirt colour.
Five colours on navy.
Another Edit: Just to address some concerns that have been brought up...
I realize that there has been a large number of turtle entries recently (and two recent turtle winners). This design was created back in the motion derby. I believe that was only the second derby I'd participated in, so as far as I know turtles hadn't yet attained the status of "meme." I know there were several turtles in that derby, probably because it's just natural to use a turtle in a motion derby. Anyway, it remained one of my favourite designs because of the colours and beause of the ring effect I came up with. I thought it deserved one more shot.
As for the design fitting the title, please realize that this turtle is doing what is known as a "freeze" in breakdancing. I'm a little bit surprised that the people who have brought this up see the motion but not the "stop," as if I had to choose between them, I would say that my image is more representative of the "stop".
My original design included four other turtle images, meant to be "before and after" images of the same turtle as it danced across the shirt. This time around, I kept only the centre turtle as I felt that the other lines conveyed the sense of motion well enough on their own. Perhaps they do too good a job.
