I didn't get it from there but that's cool too. That's also a better option cause it woulda been easier using the custom shape tool than redoing the guns..

I've been here a long time and my design is far from being worthy of these sarcastic "snortz! vector!!" posts.

Especially since it's not a little leaf or something like that. :D

Wow I didn't know "lo.l" gets changed to "snortz". That's pretty funny.

Be here as long as you want. This is blatantly the same guns as in that vector pack no matter how much you deny it.

For the record, I do like this design. If you had made your own guns I would be in for 1.

It's the old-fashioned black powder pistol that really makes it impossible... I mean, who puts Glocks, Beretta, Steyr Augs, and old pirate guns in the same image? Where would that even come from? Why no canons? Heck, the winchester shotgun even is a stretch.

I'm glad that at least someone else sees it.

That's weird... I don't see the word BANG at all in the rogue status one.

Weird.

Re: BANG


Okay I didn't think there'd be this much outcry against my design. It's irking me more than I want so here's some explanation/defense.

1. I never denied getting these guns from elsewhere. I DID get them from another site that had it open to the public for use. Whether you care or not, it wasn't a simple cut and paste since the quality of the pictures weren't good enough for the large file size so I had to retrace most of them. Again, you guys linked better sites so it doesn't matter. Pre-made vectors are pre-made vectors either way.

2. My design is no different than the countless other designs out there involving all those grungy/floral/splatter/urban vector designs. You can easily make many of those designs with vector brushes which is even easier than just cut and pasting. I guess since these guns are a little more identifiable than complex looking splatters, I'm getting more flak for it. But it's pretty much the same process.

3. And that Rogue Status shirt... I wonder where they got those gun vectors.. Hmm.. probably one of the many available gun vector packs available out there?

Well that's that.

Couldn't disagree with you more. Just because both shirts have guns on them does NOT mean the artist copy/pasted the guns from another shirt. I think the artist provides a perfectly adequate explanation a couple replies up from mine.

However, this shirt is awesome and that shirt is carp. They're stock guns, this guy didn't copy and paste from that other piece of garbage. They just used from the same source. The fact of the matter is that the guns are stock and free-to-use and this guy made some great art with them. Seems like most of the complainers are just whiners.

OMAN! You should make a gun out of little copy-pasted leaves! That'll learn 'em good. XD

IMO if anyone wants to retrace that many guns, and copy-paste them that many times, more power to ya. Copy-pasting drives me insane. I found a new respect for the ctrl-c/ctrl-v after those blasted leaves on my giraffe. D:

I just wanted to mention that woot might need you to specify where you got them from to verify that they are royalty free. Not all clipart open to the public for use falls under royalty free, and I know they have questioned this in the past

http://openclipart.org/media/files/Clue/3211

That's where I got the images from. The site says all art on the site is public domain which allows me to use it in this design.. I think. If there's anything wrong, then Woot can do what they see fit.

And I'll definitely remember to link source material in the future. Thanks for the tip.

Re: BANG


I love it. I don't see what everyone is all up in arms about. Like you said this is WAY better than those crappy leaf/spatter prints that have been coming up lately.
