I thought about not submitting as suggested, but I spent all evening and half the night on this and I'm proud of it. I did not use trace on a photograph, i don't have a program that does that.
When I first got this idea, I talked to a friend of mine that is a professional graphic artist. I thought it would be cool to do this like an old fashioned comic book hero and I was trying to talk him into doing it. He said I could do it, it was easy... find a photo of Hercules or Conan or something and look where the shadows are. Where they are dark, make it black, where it's a medium shade, make hash marks, where it's light, leave it white. So I did - with my pen tablet - I guess that could sorta be called tracing, but I was not in any way shape or form making an exact copy and every stroke was made by me.
This is an early version, before I decided to go with a black shirt and color, instead.
I guess the one time it doesn't pay to be ocd is when you keep tweaking until it looks like you cheated. :-) I do hope you guys like it... if it gets zapped... oh well, I tried!

I love it!
As far as your post, I've seen your other submissions and I highly doubt that you would submit something that you blatantly copied. You seem to be a very conscientious, active wooter and very aware of the rules. You even submitted all of those awesome stats. So I doubt you would hurt your reputation around here by cheating.

Thank you... I figured if it made me laugh out loud when I thought of it, it couldn't be a horrible idea!

Thank you for all of your support! Love your shirt, too... glad you stuck with the white and didn't listen to any of us who told you it wouldn't be a good idea!
