Re: 1989: RIP Salvador Dali


On Jan 23, 1989 Salvador Dali died. This is an homage to his Les Elephants paintings. Except mine would be Les Giraffes I guess. :D

Check out my Food design please!

At least this giraffe isn't burning

I know someone that would LOVE this shirt. He named his son Dalí...

This is beautiful! I only wish that the design itself wasn't enclosed by such a harsh vignette. Is there any way to tone it down (considerably) or somehow alter the design without the vignette altogether?

Thank you! The vignette is only harsh along the bottom, the sky is pretty soft, and the stars trail off the purple in some areas. I liked the ground to be a little more solid than the sky, but that's just my personal preference. If other people agree with you then I'll resubmit for sure, but I kind of like it as is right now.

Oh, when I used the term 'vignette', I was actually referring to the top portion (how the sky fades out). I really like the bottom portion and wondered if you could use the t-shirt colour as an element of the design - to give it more of a 'cleaner' look. To better explain myself, here's a couple of examples from a past derby to give you an idea to work from:

http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=60303


And forgive me, the vignette is just a personal pet peeve of mine and I'd say the same to anyone who had an outstanding design. This one has substance to it (unlike the usual pop culture entries) and would like to see it FOG.

I just realized that you were the same artist who designed 'Snowy Footprints' from the last derby - I seem to be drawn to your entries.

...With my last commentary on "Snowy Footprints", I focused only on what other Wooters saw as a problem - I didn't have the heart to mention my distaste for the vignette there either *hides under desk*.

For what it's worth, I rarely comment on Woot unless I want to see select entries succeed.

Thanks for all of the advice! Ending the design is always a problem for me, especially if it's an outside scene. I see what you mean about defining the shape, but all I can think to do is clouds at the top, lol. And I'm not really sure I'll do it justice.

I don't know the artist but this is so beautiful that I would be hard pressed not to purchase one if it prints. We don't see purple on shirts much around here, and it's such a shame as it's my favorite color.

Good luck!

I really like the bite that was taken out of the tree. And it's a pretty design, too.
