No, that's not Jemima Puddleduck. Yes, I'm sure.

As someone who has the "with our powers combined" shirt, you still have some 'splaining to do.

So...which side of the family is responsible for the venomous spur?

The Duck side. Ducks are filthy.

This looks more like stippling to me. But I'm not sure.

Well I think I see some blending between colours but it might just be blending into the shirt, which would be stippling? I think I've been looking at too many dots.

No, No, Its definitely just stippling, like almost every other entry. In fact, the only reason I submitted this was because I saw that they were allowing any form of art that was composed of dots or short dashes, and not rejecting any entry that didn't blend primary colors to create secondary and tertiary colors.

Seurat was really the only person OCD enough to get pointalism right. I'm pretty bad with color to begin with, so there is no way I would consider attempting to master pointalism in a week.

Well, I would hope that Seurat was OCD enough to get pointilism right, or we wouldn't have the technique. And as far as the misconception of only primary colors, he used 11. The point is to form new colors using a limited palette without mixing pains together, not limiting yourself to only primaries.
He did avoid white though, using the canvas itself showing through for that. He also avoided black, as did the Impressionists, because black isn't really a color, it's the absence of color.

*points to Friday's shirt*

Some color models would beg to differ. >_>

Really great. Not my style for a shirt, but amazing shadows and brightness. It almost looks 3Dish.

My kid would love this. In Oregon, most people are ducks (U of O) or beavers (OSU). My kid declared himself a platypus - neither one. This is great and I love the image. Nice work.
