Should have used sea lions. They really are jerks. The will grab onto the top of your hood and pull and pull your regulator out of your mouth and your mask off your face

Otters are scaredy pants.

giving the otters a circling feel makes them seem like bullies, playful bullies. Which I think is exactly what you are going for. I say this because I think the circling was a really good call on your part. =] gmv

Yes I realize that. If I had my pics from my vacation I would post those. The last time I went scuba diving, the mouthpiece attached to the hose attached to the scuba tank was not attached to the snorkle mask. The scuba gear was separate from the snorkle gear, but one wore both in case one wanted to go deep with the scuba or just float through shallow waters with the snorkle.

Originally the otters took the scuba gear entirely, and the top otter had the mouthpiece bit, but it looked like a skinny snake with a fat head, and didn't make sense without being on a face. I figure he dropped it.

Maybe I'll be able to find a better picture that shows the gear is separate though.

So you're new to woot(!) right? Cute's been around since the beginning, and it's only been growing in popularity. In fact, if anything, it's becoming woot(!)'s identity.

Fable's a great artist, you're negativity in her shirt comments is misplaced.

I'm under the assumption that when the otters so cruelly attacked this poor little guy and stole his oxygen tank, his oxygen mask and tubing got ripped off in the madness and fell to the ocean floor, never to be seen again.

Uh.. the thing you've circled is the *regulator* not a scuba mask. The mask is what covers the eyes and nose.

And sea otters don't have long tails. They are jerks though.

Oh don't be such a stick.

It's clearly the SCUBorkel invented by Ron Popeil and sold for $19.99 on a late night cable channel near you.

Apart from which it IS possible that the regulator was yanked off with the tank, and has since sunk out of sight.

this so funny but the little person looks a little too little compared to the otters. Is he four? Still, I want one.

No pirates, squids, waves: check.
Original style: not exactly. its like you just didn't care about looking like the Ramy or Seki cartoon style. So what?
Clever idea: this trumps all of them. Good Job!

Re: Otters Are Jerks


Ok so I don't expect anyone to listen to this but I'll put it up anyway. As a certified SCUBA Diver with my own gear and many years of experience I can tell you that yes, there is a snorkel. You use it on the surface if you need to swim somewhere. The piece that is circled on that picture is a 'regulator'. That what bring the air from the air (not oxygen, all divers would be dead if they used oxygen tanks) tank to the mouth. This attaches to the top of the tank with a piece that is screwed in and held by the extremely high pressure in the tank. It's almost impossible to get it off if the tank valve is open so it couldn't really have 'fallen off' the tank but it could easily have been pulled out of the mouth. There is also a few other cords, usually an extra emergency regulator as well as a piece that goes to the Buoyancy Compensator which controls your bouyancy so that you aren't too heavy and stuck to the bottom or too light and shooting off to the surface. So in the end all that is missing is the 'Octopus', as it is commonly known, that should be on the top of the tank. Mmmkay? Oh, and a mask goes on your eyes and a diving mask has to cover your nose or you can't balance the pressure and you will end up with black eyes.

And otters do have tails, but I still think that these should be sea lions as they are very well known for harassing behavior.

Haha, the harassing behaviour of sea lions can also be construed as playfulness, though---at least in my experience with sea lions in the Galapagos, they never did anything particularly nasty; however, they would swim swiftly toward you, until their face was only inches away from yours, and then dive away backwards. Maybe they are a bit mischievous.

And I very much appreciate the accurate information on SCUBA gear, as I've never been diving.

My dad in particular hated diving if there were sea lions in the water. They would try to play with the exhaust bubbles and grab the top of the diving hood and pull. this knocks the regulator out of the mouth and the mask off the face. Not being able to see or breathe isn't a great feeling.

Glad to provide clarity, even if it's only for one person ^.^

i see a lot of comments here (not just this, but others as well) being scrutinized due the lack of accurateness in comparison to reality. i just don't get this. i mean we can pretty much criticize almost every submission here about what's missing or what it's suppose to be. like how on earth is that otter even holding that tank?! he has no hands or fingers!!! but that's not the point, these designs are meant for aesthetic reasons, and not for deep pondering. if that's the case, then what the heck is the design doing on a shirt!?! i'm not scuba diving kinda person, but i get the idea and discussions should just be centered around how awesome (or not) it looks. kachaw! on to the voting poll!!!

Well otters do very well holding small food and even using rocks as tools to break open shells... but now I'm just being difficult ^.^

I disagree in this instance. If you are going to "correct" someone, then it is imperative to have the facts.

Worse, the posts, that fablefire was responding to, were concerning the existence of a snorkel, more so than the regulator. Every post specifically mentions snorkels. SCUBA divers wear snorkels, which is what fablefire was showing (snorkels).

So what point was clear exactly? That a regulator was missing (on the tank not the face as circled)? Well he is not wearing a nice neoprene suit, diving belt, knife, emergency vest...the list goes on. Those details are not necessary for the style of the design.

Critique the style/theme.

a bc
an octopus
a weight belt
and with a satchel.

Those are not scuba masks, those are regulators, scuba masks are what protect their eyes from the water so they can see, which he is missing in the picture, if the otter took his tank the regulators would have gone with it.

In the case of snorkels most divers will wear them while we dive, because often you spend alot of surface time in the water, rather than waste air, use a snorkel

Good post. I noticed that too about the fogged entries. People have a problem with imagination this week. XD

I miss Looney Toons.

Oh, would someone mind telling me where the "hoof" terminology came from? It looks like a nub to me, at best. Like when something gets amputated?

And otters do have tails, but I still think that these should be sea lions as they are very well known for harassing behavior.


Nobody can prove it's not possible that otters won't do the same. Besides, i think they are just being playful as illustrated in this piece of art. The otter is smiling :D (not in an evil way, but playful)

Re: Otters Are Jerks


Usually there's one aspect of shirts here that really bugs me, so I like them at first, but I can't buy it because something isn't right.

Here, it's the paws/feet of the otters. Why don't they have flippers instead of flat feet? I'd say that they look more like river otters, but then they're too big, and furthermore what's someone doing SCUBA diving in a river?

Just wondering why they were designed that way . . . I'm not trying to be hypercritical, just trying to figure out what the drawing was based on. I'm a huge fan of otters, and saw this and thought I'd buy it immediately (fun idea), but then looked more and had an issue (as mentioned above). Not trying to be hypercritical.

I am, however, trying to be repetitive apparently.

I SCUB dive in rivers. There are great spring-fed rivers her in FL and people SCUBA dive in them all the time.

I just laughed at this for roughly 25 seconds, literally. Count. That's a long time
