Re: rain dancer


Does the shape of the cloud/rain represent something? Like the outlines of a country? The symbolism could be very powerful.

I really like this, but I almost think I would like it better without the raincloud.

Re: rain dancer


I don't want to be rude, but I fail to see the appeal of this design. It looks quite rushed and uninspired. This is a giant block of ink with random scratches coupled with more scratches that is supposed to be rain falling on a "clip artish" silhouette of a girl who's not even "dancing." She just seems to be standing there just getting soaked. Where's the crosshatching technique or "soul" of this design?

Sometimes i need days, weeks, months to achieve a design, sometimes i need 3 hours.it doesn't mean it was rushed , and if i consider that there is no need to sweat on a design,i'll do it that way.My choice.
I usually do very complex and intricates designs, on this one i decided to stay simple and bold, and it is the first time i make a such high score on shirtwoot.
Then , i do my own vector, the character is a photo of my daughter.About dancing or not ,there are so many ways of dancing, in a lot of culture, this one is more a kid's one turning around herself.
After, i didn't see in the rules that we had to demonstrate the cross hatching technique or "soul" of it.

Well, the rules do state that you must demonstrate crosshatching technique.

Re: rain dancer


I love this shirt except for the cloud. Any way it could be toned down or shrunk a bit? It looks kind of tattered in contrast to the rain and the whimsical silhouette.

Technically, they said "using only hatched lines" but there are alot of submissions in this derby who have taken their design and applied hatching to it to get the feel of the theme. Looking at the clouds and rain, I'd say those capture the hatching feel. Only the girl is a solid outline, and plenty of entries are using solid shapes, which I don't think detracts from the effect of hatching at all.
