Re: Scuba Cat

In the future, Catamari, consider the color of the shirt you use when you pick colors. Your palette was decent but when you use black on navy, the shirt color is too dark and you cannot see black ink on it. You could have tried baby blue or even royal blue and the black would have been more prominent. I would have also made the cat just a bit bigger for the shirt. Don't be afraid to go a little larger with your design.

That link goes to Drakxxx and Zenne's collab. You might want to try that again.

Both are ripping off Hawkeye, the Scuba cat.

Get over it.

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

Well, missinggoat beat you both to it.

Does that mean people should chew out your sister for ripping off that idea? After all, she posted hers two days after missinggoat did.

There's how many world-in-a-water-drop entries in this derby? Three? Doesn't necessarily mean anyone stole from anyone else. Same thing here, I think.

Teknikas,

I think you're just sour because 2 other people came up with versions that are stronger than your sister's. Mayvn pointed out that the idea is HARDLY original (however, there isn't a shirt that I could find in checking for 5 mins, and since none of the scuba cats are winning, I'm not going to invest more time into it). missinggoat must have had the idea before your sister and this derbyist if her entry was put in 2 days before your sister's. So really, I don't see the need to sling mud. If say, two raven entries won a derby, I could see complaining about printing two shirts exactly the same, but just coming up with 3 different versions of the same idea to compete for a place is not uncommon.

As for calling me re tarded, I can honestly say I laughed my ass off when you stooped so low as to insult my intelligence. I've been competing in derbies far longer than you (or your sister) and I've been printed twice, had a few strong entries up in the top 10 and a few of my entries have gotten Best Loser nods from Thatrobert's site. Am I the best here? I'm not so full of myself to believe such a thing. But if you think your sister owns the exclusive rights to a cat in a scuba suit, you should just open a Cafepress website and just have her make shirts there. Because her entry just wasn't as strong as either of the other versions. Just don't take her design there right away, since woot actually owns this for 60 days. That's right, even if it doesn't win, the moment you upload it, it temporarily becomes woot's for 2 months.

catamari5, I apologize that your first entry's thread got overrun by people. Continue to participate but should you feel your idea is too simple... it probably is and it was likely done already. Make sure you try to push the envelope next time.

It would have to be a suppository. No one would want to put it where their mouth is.

"As for calling me re tarded"...wow, you really do need those pills huh? You really should at least learn how to spell your own disability correctly, might benefit ya in the future. You could just call yourself "tard" for short, it's easy to spell and kind of catchy don't ya think?

Hey, I'm the "sister in question", and actually, this was my first time posting something too. Good for you, JadenKale, for all your success in this weekly competition. It sounds like you have a lot to brag about. You must be proud of your accomplishments! You must have a lot of good tips and supportive comments to give to people just starting out in something like this.

Actually, my design is from a pen and ink drawing that I did in a "just for fun" art class about 10 years ago, so yes, it is my original artwork! I'm not exactly as techno savvy as the rest of you, as I mostly paint with real paints and real canvas. I thought about posting my picture here just for kicks, just to see if I could figure out how to do it (which wasn't exactly easy!). I'm not taking it overly seriously.

I don't necessarily think it is fair to say that this design is "stronger" than mine, just more (how do I say it without sounding insulting, because that is not how I mean to come across) "cute", which seems to be what a lot of people like, thus resulting in more votes. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE cute! I guess lots of other people do too!

In regards to scuba cats not being very original...I guess great minds must just think alike!

The word gets filtered if you spell it out, watch:
"infatuated"

I edited it, much like you did in order to insult me in the first place. You really need to stop taking this so personally. You're holding an unnecessary grudge, both against the designer and me. All I did was point out the facts as they stand. You're just lowering yourself to an unappealing level.
