Lol. Nice. Did you really edit it that fast or did you have this one waiting just in case?

And this is exactly why I think Woot needs to do their rejections quickly. Plenty of time for this to be resubmitted.

I actually like it better now

Really impressive drawing. But without the sign that says National Park, how does this have anything to do with parks? I'm wondering if you had this drawing laying around from something else. It doesn't fit the spirit of the derby and that bugs me, even tho it's well done.

i think i agree. especially considering that it was first a design of mordor. i feel like he probably had it done in advance and then just threw the sign on there. i get no national park feel from it.

p.s. the link to your moon didn't work for me

Without the LOTR references, now it just looks like a cheap imitation. Had a much better feel before the rejection, it's a shame it couldn't stay.

Re: DEATH NATIONAL PARK


I'd like to give you a vote, but the sign just seems off to me... Maybe not even the sign as much as the type. It just doesn't seem to fit in well with the design. Maybe some distressing or giving it a more "carved" look would suit it better... Idk, just my thoughts.

I didn't see your old entry post-rejection and so I didn't see the specific rejection reason. Was it bounced for being a game reference, a reference to the book, or a reference to the movie that used specific images from the movie?

This is kind of easy- It's just, watch the movie, draw it like that.

This is creepy. Great illustration but I wouldn't wear it on a shirt. Good for Halloween, though...

implying LotR is a video game reference.

Sorry artist, this design was awesome pre-rejection, now it just doesn't feel right at all.

LoTR is a book reference. All the LoTR video games are Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966) and shouldn't exist.

Could you please post the image of your shirt with the all-out LOTR parody. I remember Sauron, Frodo, Samwise, and Smeagol were all in the design, but I was curious about what else was changed from that design. Thank you, and I wish this design the best of luck! GMV

Yes, I too would like to see the original design. I really liked this shirt because it reminded me or Mordor, but if you made one that looks even closer, I would like to check it out. Thanks

This looks like a copy from one of the LOTR artist interpretation art books. Looks nice but still a copy.

This is the time I thank cwarrington for creating ShirtDerbyStats.com. This is quite possibly the only reason I use his site now (because, I've learned to not trust the vote predictions at the site).

Nitro, Click Here for Patrickspens' initial design. You'll also see he removed it twice before it was rejected. (he misspelled 'Admission' on the one that ultimately got rejected and before that, he tried to be witty and use no text) Also, he removed two of the 'hobbits' from the entry gate.
