Re: Troop Support


Here's to the troops of the air, land, and sea. Together, they fight for the land of the free.

This is only my second entry to a woot derby so comments (yes critics) welcome!! Thanks!

Keep in mind, any critisizm you get will most likely not reflect upon how well something will sell, based on the mob mentality here.

It's not a terrible design but it's a little "wide". It could use more north/south balance and it is less like art and more something you can get in the PX to send back home to dad.

What's good about it. You certainly got your message across, which is important. People go in for that patriotism thing, even if it's in an inactive, passive knee-jerk way.

And the word you meant to use is critique. Anyone can be critical but you want someone to give you an honest critique and that takes some understanding of the art.

I was referring to actual people when I used critics but yes I want honest critiques. College seems to force it down your throught until you like it so don't be shy.

Mine won't win, there are others I know to be designed on a higher level than I. To be honest I'm not really shooting for a win at the moment but more trying to get back in the swing of things design-wise. Someone on the forum asked for troop support so that's all I could come up with. That was probably my "inactive, passive knee-jerk way." Hopefully doing a couple of these derbies will get the juices flowing again. Thanks for the advice! It is appreciated.

I meant knee-jerk patriot in the sense that a lot of Americans buy a plastic flag and then call themselves a patriot.

Patriots DO something and I guess I'm a little hard-nosed on the subject. the country is going down the crapper.

Agreed. It's sad. Nothing like the old days.

Me too, though that is the reason I chose to do just the anchor since all three share at least that in their logos/signia. So I'm assuming it worked. :P The goal was to represent land, air and sea as generally as I could. That way everyone is included. Sorta.
