"Warpigs!"

A collaboration between DianaSprinkle and Bassanimation. Bass drew the image and I inked and crosshatched it. I love crosshatching. This is all hand inked and scanned in.

Here are some close ups:

Oh my goodness. I have been following the derbies for the last year, but this is the first time I have ever felt the urge to comment.

As a former mouse and guinea pig owner(currently a proud rat owner!), I think this shirt is absolutely amazing. The mice and guinea pigs look spot on and the detailing is fantastic. If this prints I will buy it in a heartbeat. Good luck!

Wow. I can't give a sarcastic post. No outrageous stories. No mention of my girlfriend (Tina Yothers).

This is just really, really incredible. Very good job.

You had me at mice on t-shirt. I also love the total Joust feel that this gives me.

Re: Warpigs


Hi all,

this is my first collab with my good friend, Diana! When I saw the theme, I instantly thought of her, as she has -mad skils- in this area of art. I had this drawing in my sketchbook and she decided to give it a go. It looks SO fantastic, I could not be more thrilled with her execution! EEEE!!!

I hope everyone enjoys the War Pigs . I really love to draw little rodents and fantasy things, so this was like pure art chocolate for me. Thanks for doing this with me, D!

Awesome, always nice to see fellow rodent lovers and ratty owners. :D I have 8 ratty girls at home and I work with area breeders/fanciers. I loves me some wodents. <:3()~~~~

Bass, were you ever a part of the Florida Rat List forum? You just seem so familiar to me. Regardless, I've been a big fan of your work in the derbies.

Cool as, I love stuff like this. I had mice fighting on birds in an old entry, not as well done as this tho. The costumes are dope.

Leilia, I am totally a part of the Florida group! I haven't been there in a little while, but I know Bella really well. I work with her 'team' here in Texas and have some russian blues from her lines :D. Thanks so much for joining the fray here! I need to post this guy on the Florida list in case the rodenty peeps would like it ^^.

I keep coming back to this. -So- impressed by what you've designed together here.

This is how to win derbies, right voters? :^)

They clarified this in the pre-derby thread, you are allowed to use outlines to develop the image so long as they are filled with cross hatching and hatching: http://shirt.woot.com/Forums/ViewPost.aspx?PostID=4234209&PageIndex=1&ReplyCount=395#post4234276

"Outlines are fine, they should just be shaded or filled with cross hatching in some way..."

D, you should really post the original inks you made. I could not believe my eyeballs... No way I could do that stuff. It is amazing!

Re: Warpigs


My one tiny quibble is that I wish you'd gotten the number of toes on the guinea pigs right. G. pigs only have three toes on the back and four on the front. Other than that, I think it's great!

Awww, I'm sorry about their footies. I see what you mean though. Blast! I feel a fool.
Thanks for spotting that. I would like to make a full color version of this image at some point, and then I can revisit their feet .

Yeah! I actually just posted this over at the forum for the Mouse Guard Role Playing Game. It fits perfectly into the setting.

Re: Warpigs


Thanks for all the comments and votes everyone! I'm so happy to see the war pigs still in the fog.

I just wanted to comment so I could post a close up for the other guinea pig. I used a crosshatching technique on this guy that makes it sort of look like the texture of leaves or fur but it's really just 5 to 6 short parallel lines placed over each other at slight angles. I don't see this style of crosshatching much outside of Japanese manga.

Re: Warpigs


My favorite part is the different colors of the guinea pigs. My little sister has a guinea pig and I know she'd love this shirt.

You guys are the best.

I love this website! ^^

Wow. I'm on the same page, I have always had hamsters growing up and currently I have a mouse. I love him. My boyfriend loves woot, and got me into checking the derbies, I've been doing this for a long while now. My second favorite woot shirt even came from one of the derbies I followed......anyway, none of you care about my history....Basically, I LOVE THIS DESIGN

that is all, I love it, and would love a print of it, even if the shirt doesn't win, but it should, because it's fantastic

I've heard people mention Redwall, but I did not know what it was until this derby. My boyfriend told me about and I looked it up. I'll have to pick up some of the material and read it as it looks right up my alley.

As a fantasy lover and a rodent lover, my weird brain naturally puts them together. I try to make my drawings look and feel different from similar ideas that are out there, but it is hard. I had no idea there was so much cool stuff out there about rodenties.

Glad everyone is still enjoying the War Pigs! Thank you so much for your support and comments!

Re: Warpigs


Sorry I didn't comment sooner, been out of town and sick this week. Great collab you two (But Diana your gonna have to fight me for Bass if you plan on doing collabs with her on a regular basis ;) ). Great clean lines and the texture is amazing. The only thing I maybe could have done without is the outlines on the figures but that's a little point. Needless to say though it got my vote as soon as it went up. Here's to an overdue print for you Bass.

Re: Warpigs


Hi all, I wanted to give one more thank you to everyone who commented and voted here for the War Pigs. I really owe Diana the biggest thanks of all for taking my sketchbook drawing and turning it into this amazing work of crosshatch fury! Thanks so much, dude!

Hope everyone enjoys Thanksgiving today. Alas, due to some food poisoning last night, my boyfriend and I are stuck in our house, with no turkey dinner ;_;. He'll have to eat broth and I'll probably throw in some microwave burritos, hahahah. Word of advice: if you're going to the deli for a tuna melt, don't go after 7, cause you'll probably get the old crud that has cooties in it. >:{

Thanks again guys, fantastic art abounds! I really loved this derby!
