Re: Genesis in the Mind


I decided to rework the elements of the design a bit, hopefully it works and they match better in style now

I'll take the risk of looking stupid and say that I don't quite understand how this relates to the derby theme of "beginning". Personally, I think it would fit better with the theme of the "cabin fever" derby.

It also seems very similar to other shirts out there that illustrate the whole "there's all this stuff in my head just dying to get out" idea. I'm sorry if that's not what you were going for, but that's what I see when I look at it.

Besides that, I won't be voting for/buying this shirt because I just don't wear black shirts. Nothing against you for that one, it's just my thing.

I feel bad for all the koi that got thrown at you in the pre-derby forum. But then again, you did just get, like, 2 grand this past month for drawing things and posting them on a website, so I can't feel all that bad for you. :P

At least you're getting paid for your 15+ hours of derby work. I feel like I'm just entering these derbies now to keep me distracted from the nothing I have to do with my month off.

Beautifully intricate and almost mesmerising, as well as fantastical and mythological...I'd buy it. I don't totally like how large the design is or the head as a feature, but I see that it's important for the concept. I also think another colour shirt would work better. Still, lovely art.

This would make an awesome poster for sure. I personally think it would look better if it was off-center...somehow...
Anyway, its a nice design and I like the way you drew the birds. GMV.

It's not just ideas in someone's head, it's the story of creation, with Eve and the serpent and the tree.

Ramyb, this is an amazing shirt. The more I study it the more I find. I love the bar of music in there, and the bunnies and fish referencing (I assume) your other shirts.
You have my vote and my purchase should it win. It's beautiful. And I love black. ;)

Why? Forty-two...you see, it doesn't work.

Re: Genesis in the Mind


I love this and if it doesn't win someone make this into a poster so that i can buy it

And thank you for the high res version...if you have higher res, that would be awesome. I guess if it doesn't make it into poster form i could always rasterbate it

Black isn't my thing, but I'd buy this anyways. I'm with everyone else in chanting for a poster.

Re: Genesis in the Mind


I just don't get it. Overall, the grey color all sort of merges together. It might help if the pieces that are supposed to be farther away were darker, or somehow transparent-er, but they aren't. The few lighter grey items stand out, but they don't seem any more significant than any other of the bits. The shape, I suppose, is supposed to be a tree, but it's pretty bleh in shape; it reminds me of a nuclear cloud more than a tree, kind of like Kim Jong Il's hair. I don't really see genesis here, but rather a gemisch of 'stuff'. It is clean, and sort of pretty, but overall, generic and not particularly interesting. Even the elven face itself has no character to it.

Ah. Well, then, I guess that makes sense if you look at it that way. I *personally* don't think it's obvious enough to fit the derby theme (again, I reference all the shirts with "stuff in my head"), but I'm glad people are seeing things that I'm not.

I also don't understand why Eve is wearing clothes, then, but I assume shirt.woot wouldn't appreciate a nekkid lady too much. ;)

Good luck, regardless.

Nice design! I like the way you did the face!

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.

This is going to be such a shame if it doesn't get printed.
