Derby #84: The Sea

Steampunk Discovery

Great illustration, but the concept is too similar to a GlennzTee shirt here:http://store.glennz.com/deepsecret.html . Can you resubmit with a slightly different take?

On a routine soap-seeking mission, the greatest discovery of all time was made.

Remember discovering the drain. I was afraid at first.

This is such a great illustration. I wish it were bigger, though. I think some of the great detail will be lost at that size.

The size will just encourage people to get really close and to stare

I imagine that would be somewhat awkward for the ladies.

I love the illustration, but the size and placement doesn't work for me. Nice work, however.

Agreed. Great illustration, but not the right kind of design for a "Pocket Placement"

I love steam punk, this is really cool. I don't know if I like the drain plug though.

I loved watching the whirpool down the drain and would put my finger in the little gap left by the whirlpool and see if I could keep from getting touching the sides.

Can people stop using this as an excuse?

Designs with large circles over the chest, or with text that's going to curve around them is awkward. A design that just has a picture over one side is fine.


My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

I agree 100%. The drain is too far away, and the eye keeps being torn between the two images rather than taking it in as a connected piece. I love the drawing though, go steampunk!

Re: Steampunk Discovery


You know, I think this derby is creating more great pieces of artwork than most (especially the last), but still in every case there is only 1 that I can see myself wearing. GMV

As hopeful as I am that this will win, it looks like it might not make it to the fog. If not, pleeeease print this through another site!

I believe when Iceman made his comment he was referring to DeadFrog's comment about the size of the design:

Re: Steampunk Discovery



I think his "take" is already different enough than the one from that other site. It's realist rather than cutesy, it's steampunk, and altogether it's a better version than the other one. I doubt he copied the idea, to be honest.

Absolutely agreed. I couldn't believe it got rejected for being too similar upon seeing the other shi...er...shirt.

It inhales sharply and creates suction big time that this got rejected. This is so much better than the one it was rejected for. Please please please resub so I can vote for it again.

Wow, that's kind of a stretch don't you think.

This rejection brought to you by the same people who rejected the "John Henry" shirt in the Myths/Legends derby, for being "off topic."

...???...

Too bad...I would've bought this one...the other one just inhales sharply and creates suction.

The rejection all but tells you how to save it..

Its not rejected for steampunk (thats what everyone likes).. subby just needs to eliminate the plug from the design..

If by "kind of a stretch" you mean "the exact same concept," then yes

The plug makes it awesome. A similar idea doesn't make the art less valid. It's executed completely differently. Concept isn't everything.

ah! a ghost!

Re: Steampunk Discovery


It's inhales sharply and creates suction that this got rejected. Out of all the designs submitted so far, this is still the best. Even better than the steampunk resubmit, though that does look good, it's not something I would buy. This one has great design features along with being humorous.

Personally I know it's similar in style of the other t-shirt but this is soo much better. Let's hope that even though it might not win the derby, it'll still get printed sometime somewhere.
