Re: Edison Plays Dirty


Not only were Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla always rivals, but they also were born with white hair and a mu-stash respectively. This story telling of their grade school science fair projects is foreshadowing of their future conflicts. Though less brilliant, Edison knows how to get the job done. Sometimes simplicity wins... in this case, its just down right cheating.


Let me know what you guys think. I always welcome critique. I hate it that I had to turn this one in late. I really like the History behind these two.

This design is awesome. Very clever.

I don't know why you don't have more votes. I'll buy at least 2.

Thanks for the support. I still feel like Im trying to learn what the woot community likes while not sacrificer a scene of it being my work. I like things to tell a story. I wish I could get more critique even bad ones. It would help my improve my work either way.

Yeah, sorry. Looks like it didn't hold. We've had problems in the past with spammers and now require a purchase before allowing images in the signature. Good thing is that it can be from any site (except deals).

It wasn't clear to me exactly what was going on until I studied it for a bit. Now I get that Edison snipped Tesla's cord, but what is that on the cut end? It looks like a wad of gum to me.

hmmm I see. It suppose to be sparks that are illuminated. I can see how it might be hard to tell... Sometimes when you get the joke you forget to look at it with fresh eyes. Thanks for the thought. Ill make sure to get a couple of guys in to look at my work next time to make sure the joke is clear.

My only critique is that it's on grey and that's a personal dislike rather than a design flaw.

Still gave it a +1 because the art style is great.

Awesome! Got my vote. I hope the rest of the wooters understand the Edison/Tesla rivalry.

I love the design. I think that your message is very clear and I like the story it tells. My only critique is that Tesla's head is twice as big as Edison's. Voted anyway though.
