Re: Darwin's Data


The illustration alone deserves a vote! well done. I saw your pencils in the thread and was blown away by it. Great job!

I like it. There's usually a lot of hate for creme, but I don't think this would have worked as well on any other colour. It's definitely got a Victorian sort of feel to it. Nice work!

Re: Darwin's Data


did you do all that sketch in a graphics program or did you pen/pencil and paper it first?

No. Yes.

Fantastic. Would be nice to get a real piece of well done artwork into the fog instead of the cutesy joke-laden norm.

Re: Darwin's Data


Maybe I'm dense, but why is it called Darwin's data? He kept his original data forever...huh? Birds are data? I don't get it.

It is a really cool looking design and I love the colors.

the birds are Darwin's finches. His data is the beaks of the finches, which he measured to help explain how evolution worked so dramatically on the Galapagos. One of the fundamental rules in science is that you keep your raw data, so this old Darwin kept his finches, see? so he was keeping the raw data unil he died, in case anyone asked for it, he could prove- oh, never mind!

Thanks for the explaination! Makes me like it even more. Guess I should read up on Darwin, since I am a lab tech and all.

You mean his data "supported" his theory, right? Nothing can be proven. ;)

"he could prove that he had actually done the measurements that supported his hypothesis." See how that works there? ;^)

I voted!!! Gorgeous! I'd buy one. I'm on the same thought as everyone else ~ I'd like something away from the silly side.

Pretty cool, except that without the title, I don't know that I would have known that it was Darwin instead of some crazy bird man.

Just wondering...Do you have pet birds or do you feed wild birds?
Do they sit on your head?

OK, I really hate to be the one to pee on someone's cornflakes, but... I knew I'd seen this concept before. And while I love the style and execution of this much more, the proportions in the Sudyka painting are more correct (finches are itty-bitty birds). The size of the birds has bugged me from the start.
All that said, it does make for an interesting and attention-getting design. Good luck!

HAHA! I rather like the big fat bird sitting on his head ~ just makes me chuckle every time I see it.

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • So I'm taking a rainbow up to the 5th floor.

By "raw data" you mean live, raw, uncooked, chirping data? That's kind of neat.

you really can be a PIA, can't you? ;^)

So, the finches I drew are Galapagos finches of a variety of species, not all the same species of finch as in that drawing. I wanted them to be way big, so that's how I drew them. I don't really care whether they are relatively right-sized, dig?

god forbid that anyone who tries to draw things in a relatively realistic manner should take a tiny bit of artistic license and draw them an unrealistic size.
