Adding the headset really sells this for me.

I love the art and you have mad skillz (as I said before, humbling). Just not a shirt I can wear.

Awesome job! GMV and my $10 WHEN this gets printed!

You can ride with me, or you can find your own path. Don't stab me in the back after I've cleared the way.

i thing this one is a little too subtle, maybe if the controller was bigger

I wouldn't wear it, but I wish I could put it on the wall in my living room.

@Andy - Thanks! Yeah it needed a little something extra aside from the controller.

@Keelmy - Thanks! Ahh come on, you could wear it! ;)

@Boots - Much appreciated! Diggy looks good too!

@Cobol - Gracias!

@shaivya - I hear you. I had thought of making it a more contrasting color, but I wanted to maintain the overall subtlety of the original painting.

@j0naht - Thank you! You could put it on your wall.

This came out really well, I like the tilt of the painting. It really throws off the original geometry and makes you realize it's a parody.

Truely well done. You kept the integrity of the original piece while still balancing the with overall theme. GMV

@tiernane - How so? Did she game or was she a very conservative dresser?

@dekonstruct - Thanks. The tilting of the painting was a kind of last minute idea.

@lkackman - Great compliment! Thank you!

@DavidShenoda - Thanks.

@sundbe - Thank you!

If there's anyone who is not familiar with the original painting, here's a pic:

I know I already commented on this design, but I just can't stop looking at it and I really hope it wins.

What a masterpiece of understatement! She has such a subtle focused expression; very genteel, but very intense. I'm glad you resisted exaggerating color, size, etc. with this. You also did a beautiful job with the lace, it's a nice soft contrast to the headphones & big screen. I'm not much for video games, but this is by far my favorite!

Great design, InfinityLoop!

Dang, I will be crushed if this doesn't end up on a shirt next weekend!
You did a fantastic job on the colors, very subdued and soothing. Also, I love the askew picture on the wall, I imagine her to be so engrossed in her XBox that she is letting the house go to pot all around her......

This design is too awesome to fall out of the fog. Granted, this week has lots of great designs, but it's still frustrating. Well, GMV at least!

Agree, rglee!
I can't believe it's not totally running away with it, having fallen out of the fog. Here's hoping it will bounce right back into it!

I agree completely. There are many that are very good, but the subltety of this really got to me. I hope it will rally!

Loop - it took a while to find the right words for this!

she plays a lot of WoW. it's cool for a while. and then it gets to the point where i get asked to play her character so she can make dinner :/ And then my brother who also plays will play for me for her while playing for himself, but only if i make him cookies. So glad i only live there 2 months/year.

Very creative! I would never have even thought of this. Anyways, if this doesn't place in this derby, seems like it definately will whenever they do the next do-over.

@rglee - It's frustrating for me too. Oh well. C'est la vie. Thanx for the vote though!

@jestik - I love your enthusiasm!

@bradyson, amethest, and rachel1aaron - Thank you!

@domenator - I'm glad this made you laugh. Hopefully you're not laughing at me for falling out of the fog though...I'm just kidding. You wouldn't do that.

@tiernane - All I can say is: WOW. ha ha.

@eyeslikesugar - agreed.

@dea007 - That would be awesome. Although I still feel really sorry for my poor pig. I'm hoping he'll do well in the do-over.

I've held off on commenting on this one simply because I didn't think my words would do this justice. And now I see it's dropped out of the fog. ACK! I'm starting to see a trend here that my favourites aren't going to continually get the love they deserve.

Anyway, this is really wonderful and I don't know how to describe it other than it really makes me smile. Nice work, loop.

I love this! It's very clever and executed very well. There are some good entries this derby, but this one is one of my favs. If it doesn't print this time around I hope they print it in the next editor's choices.

Re: Gamer Mother in the style of Whistler


I like how the design as a whole has just enough shape to it to keep it from feeling boxy.

You're getting good at making a design look like it belongs on a t-shirt.

@dea007, rachel1aaron, derek, montron, klswoot - Thank you!!

@SpastasticNomadic - I'm glad it makes you smile. Even though I'm sad it fell out of the fog too, it makes me feel better to get comments like yours.

@tommyt827 - Thanks! That would be great!

@SailorButterfly - Thank you! Yeah it's hard to get used to putting compostions on shirts after you've been putting them on canvases and paper for years. llo
