Here you can see a comparative to show how the size of the haltone has increased a lot:

I'm new at woot so you probably know more than me about this
In this case, I drew a skelleton with the pose of the photo, and then continued drawing looking at the rest of my reference photos. I don't think that use reference photos is a bad thing.
Anyway, woot decide

I would totally rock this shirt. Not sure how on-derby-topic it is but I absolutely love the design no doubt about it.

People use reference photos in artwork all the time. I was always told that using a reference photo when drawing was fine (and in fact was often encouraged to do so), as long as I didn't trace the photo. In this case, I think the drawing is reminiscent of the reference photo, but isn't so much alike that it makes me think you might have traced it. Just my opinion.

Personally, I love this illustration and think you did a great job with it!

I use reference photos all the time. As long as it's not directly "live-traced" I think it's fine. Nice job, Naolito.

Edit: "Live trace" refers to an automated function in Adobe Illustrator, where you can import a photo and the computer "traces" the image or does the work for you.

@tattooedbear-Ha, the next time you "live trace" your model, use a softer lead pencil. ;)

I tried live tracing once. My model ended up with scars all over him.

Hahaha

Thank guys, of course it's not live trace, I didn't even overpainted it, I just take the "skelleton" from it, the pose (i don't know how to tell this in english)

Naolito - I am experimenting with half-tones for the first time. Can you tell me what was the cell size you used on the resub?

Thanks!

Great job on the resub. The colors are still awesome. Glad you decided to give it another shot.

You can submit a different color version while this one is up but you will probably split your vote if you do. I wouldn't suggest it since you're right outside of the fog.

Dude, nice job on the chameleon. You know you have a great design when it fogs, gets rejected, gets resubmitted, and then fogs again. I hope you get a prize for your efforts. Good Luck!

Yay! I'm so glad you redid it. It looks much better without the branch out of the head, too.

And I really like it on green. On black, I feel like it would look like sooooo many other shirts.

*crosses fingers for a print* I want this shirt!

Nicely drawn, and nice color choice for the intent of the piece, but I'm not a fan of this style of half-tone usage. I mean, it looks great at a distance, but close up, it's kinda looks like a mess to me. Also, heavy saturation on the shirt = unhappy when perspiring.

A colorful simple design that can be worn at any time, I hope this wins.
