sokowa, back to the fog with you! I do love this design. That expression on the octopus is priceless. Best of luck. Hope you're back in fogland when you return.

Love it - combines my two favorite topics of the week, balloons and many legged sea creatures. Great job.

Everybody talks about the expression in the eyes of your creations, and they're right...but I really think it's the color pallet that you use. It always has a warm feeling to it, like it blends ever so slightly with the shirt color. Do you do that by messing with the layer's transparency? It's awesome.

carp... this just went out of the fog for a second, which means it's in fourth place. It has 197 votes right now.

Great art! Love it. Unfortunately, I'd never wear it as a shirt so no vote. But love the work.

Thanks! I struggle with the pallet sometimes. No transparencies here. I just pick a shirt color and work from that instead of making a design and hoping it'll work with a shirt template after the fact. And congrats on fog!

Re: Helium: Octo's Great Adventure


This is easily my favorite shirt of the derby... sokowa, if it doesn't print here (sadness) by some chance, please let me know where it might show up :D.
I love this design but especially the pallete (is it pallet)? Well, whatever word is used to describe the selection of colors and how they relate. I am loving the soft warm feel to this shirt and somehow all your shirts seem to have that. I have a few of your shirts but I would love more. I also especially appreciate how you experiment with techniques and styles and subjects. Ok, better stop now. Just "color" me impressed and keep stylin'!

Octopus are awesome. And your illustration is hilarious, love the colors too. I'm sure I'll have the opportunity to buy this one later. GMV.

Thanks. Shirtderbystats.com estimates at least 50 more votes to hit 3rd place. But everything in the fog is a tough contender and getting good votes, so printing at this point would be impressive. Well, at least with each drawing I do I tend to learn something.

I really would be okay if this shirt didn't have the ugly squawking bird.

Without the bird a great deal would be missing from this shirt. As it stands this is the only shirt I would definitely buy from this contest. I am honestly confused as to why this isn't the top voted shirt with the competition the way it is this time.

Re: Helium: Octo's Great Adventure


This shirt is one of the reasons I wish Woot printed the top 7 in the derby instead of all the random shirts. I don't know about everyone else, but I don't think I've ever bought one of the random shirts.

It just always seems that some of the best shirts don't quite make it.

Man this is good stuff. Bummed that it's only at 7th, since it should clearly be number 1. Let's hope the staff gives this one a chance even if it doesn't win! For sure in for one if I can!

What's horrible is that I only like 1 shirt in the top 4, and not enough to buy it.
