Yeah, it really is a super-downer. But I kinda love it for that

I love this illustration, but something seems off with the placement. Perhaps it just the nature of the illustration slant.

Either way, your illustration is quite original and looks great in monotone.

You should have named it "We're gonna need a bigger grill."

i really like the drawing and style. i think if the water stretched horizontally across the shirt more it would feel more balanced, but it's a great design! GMV

Mmm-mmm, tasty plesiosaur. And a sharp illustration, kevlar!

Thanks for the kind words and critiques all!

I'm glad this has been well received. It's much closer to my actual style than the more cartoony designs I've been submitting--so this certainly helps build my confidence going into future derbies.

Nice design! I like the drawing style on this one.

Great sketch . . . but something is bugging me about the perspective of the flying contraption. Because you can see the inside surface of the hull, it makes it seem like the ship is heading down or in some direction other than it should.

Thanks elviswind. Perhaps the plesiosaur is dragging it down?

In reality, I drew the airship with the idea that the viewer is at the same level as the area between the balloon and the gondola. But in hindsight, that was a poor composition choice, as the image would have been much more powerful coming from the waves.

I guess my enthusiasm was premature. Any momentum this one had seems to have completely disappeared.

Chin up. It's a really great design. You're joining the ranks of tons of great designs that never got printed at Woot.

Welcome! By the way, I think you really have something with this style. I'd keep going in this direction, rather than with the cartoons. It's awesome.

^^ Agree! Woot has plenty of cartoony shirts IMO.

  • 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.
  • Wrap you up in a melody so you'll be stuck in my head all day, 'cause you're already there anyway.
