This version includes all the suggestion / feedback from the pre thread (I think it's all... may have missed something) . I will be deleting one of these before the 24 hours is up, so speak up if you prefer on over the other.

Very cool design. I agree that this 'darker' version captures more of the mood that I originally felt from the design from the pre-derby thread.

My only question is where did the knife silhouette wander off to?

+1 anyway. Good luck!

This really looks nice! Reminds me of a Calvin Harris music video I saw awhile back.

I'm new to the "derby" but I LOVE and want your shirt so much! The black is a GREAT improvement but the blue already has 40 votes! Will they combine the votes for the black and the blue if you pull one (I mean they really are the same design). It would be awful to lose all those points because you improved it...

Anyway, I hope I get to buy this shirt-- I love it so much! Great work!

The darker one definitely conveys the mood of the image better. Great job!

Trashed the old one since many more people enjoyed this one. I made the mistake of not reading the new comments on that one, so I truly apologies to anyone who liked that one more.

Special thanks to OdRoc for recommending, and displaying a better color scheme. I usually go light shirt if I want my line art to shine more, so I am thankful for your "fresh" eyes and your willingness to help me out. I probably won't have noticed due to past habits.

Thanks, Chump. I always like to help when I can. I generally spend 40-80 hours a week coloring, I'm constantly thinking about it. When you posted the sketch, I already had it colored in my head. Great job, btw.

Spooky and ominous, as, I said on the other thread, makes me GLAD I didn't have any brothers !! I love the silhouette of the sister in the doorway...great characters , even the unfortunate bear! (Don't worry kid, sissy's comin' to save you!)

Re: Curiosity Kills V2


Way not to disappoint, absolutely love this design. Excellent illustration of the topic as well as an interesting and wearable shirt. Thought both versions were very good but this one has a much more intense feel. Good job implementing the recommendations (although i do prefer the nasally challenged individuals of your universe), the new lighting and colors create an even better story. i do miss the 'sous-chef' silhouette, but get the omission due to the fear of the dreaded big red stamp. Hopefully this will get into fog, great job on another fantastic entry.

This color scheme brings a 'secret lab' style to the design. Very nice. :^)

I voted for this not so much because I want one - it's not really my cuppa - but because it's one of the very few shirts in the derby that's on-topic. And, it is very well-executed, despite not being something I personally want to wear.

Re: Curiosity Kills V2


I am just going to say this and sorry I didn't say it before....I love this design but I also really loved the one in the pre derby thread where the sister had a knife. I think that one element added alot of power to the design...just that one little element. And maybe it wouldn't have gotten rejected for the pg thing...look below at this Tarzan pic. I did had a knife.

There are still some days left here, any chance of chucking the knife version into the mix for me if I say pwetty pweese?
(check Page 7, 5:01 am pre derby thread anyone who missed it...)

(ummm since I am making a special request...I liked the pre derby knife one on blue.)I don't blame you for leaving things as they are though,late in the game etc.Plus this version keeps climbing and is excellent as is.(and I hope it prints)

I'll go far away now!

I had the original up for a bit (on light blue), but when I finished and entered this one, it immediately soared passed the original version.

A lot of people asked me to remove the knife. I do really miss it, but I just pretend she is hiding it behind here back now. I may popped up a version 3 with the return of the knife, but I doubt it will get the votes to make it to print since there's only a few days.

I usually don't comment unless it's positive, with your design it's all positive...It just nagged at me that I didn't tell you my opinion (that I liked the knife in the sisters hand in your prederby thread( page 7 prederby thread,around middle of page, for anyone reading this) when you were getting it ready, I guess I was 2nd guessing my opinion about the possible pg13 rejection issue as much as you so stayed quiet, didn't want to push you the wrong way,.

Re: Curiosity Kills V2


If everyone likes the brown best(shown above) then so do I and I can pretend the knife is there too for the sake of the kiddies!(I know it's there!!!)

I'll go far away again now!

Good luck with this one though, it's wolverinetastic!!!

I am with everyone who is disappointed that this one isn't doing better. I think it is a fantastic design, and it is awful that it isn't AT LEAST fogging. (Should print too!!)

Re: Curiosity Kills V2

Glad you stuck with this design. A shame this isn't in the fog... yet. I am hopeful. I really enjoy your work.
On another note, Oh Shiny came in today. I did notice the slight difference due to Woot's color mix-up (possibly only because I was looking for it), though I still think it looks great. A very worthwhile purchase. I hope to see more of your work win derbies.

Love it! It's a shame this isn't in the fog yet. It seems to me to way more on topic than a lot of the shirts that made it there so far this derby.
