Re: Cthulhu BBQ

Its way too simple for my tastes

So aren't the history lessons a little over-the-top? Yes, It's a Korean/Japanese/Chinese/Asian style dragon. Yes, it's Japanese Kanji on the apron. While we're at it, lets make that a German Bratwurst just for the sake of it... And he's referencing Mongolia, and he's selling to primarily Americans!!!111oneoneone
Now his shirt is somewhat multicultural. wow.

Thank you for trying to teach the world a lesson based on a witty shirt title and design, but really. I just want to wear the damn thing.


I think one could potentially argue that it's off-topic in a way because of the titling. But also, considering the designer put so much care into the design, I'd have appreciated at least a minor amount of accuracy. There are people who care about education. ^_~

Commenting on your own design with an alternate account? Blah.

Needs to have a shirt in there somewhere so we know the placement.

no no..... not BEE BEE CUE... BAR BEE CUE (note the word 'drunk'). I had been goofing around with with a piece like this, but it definitely was more cohesive. I stopped halfway because I remembered woot looks down on alcoholic themes as a general rule.

It is a beaver surrounded by BBQ gadgetry and he is cooking a log, so I assume he is basting with BBQ sauce. I don't think people have confused the red sauce to be actual blood...its just that the bright red color triggers an a pretty common association with blood. The sauce is a dripping liquid substance, if it were black it might look like tar and if it were blue it might look like water. Brownish-red would probably be more traditional for BBQ sauce.

I voted for you because I really admire your work on this illustration...I love the retro cartoon style illustration. It is really quite spectacular!

Thanks for the guess... I'm so saddened by this. I don't think it was using the lolcat for drawing reference, tracing or what have-you, it was noted as off-topic... yeah, idk. =[ On a brighter note my randoms came today and I got a Yay Brocolli shirt =]

I like the execution here much better than in 'Oh, Burned' (not to mention the addition of the hilarious sadistic hot dogs XD) but alas, it's way too similar.

Re: This one is done



I love the style and detail of the fire and the colors of the whole piece, but I wish there was more detail on the monsters.

Also, the placement isn't great for the ladies, if you know what I mean. My lady is always quick to remind me of that aspect on my own designs.

You really should. I don't have a graphics tablet myself, so hand draw and hand ink, scan it in and then add color. Illustrator is tough to use (I can't use it very well) especially if you don't have anything to work off of. If you have a digital camera, you can draw it out with pencil the old fashioned way, take a picture of your drawing, and then "trace" it in illustrator.
It is really important to draw it out first, because if you don't your illustration will end up generic and computery.


That being said, keep working at it! Dude, Illustrator is tough, and competing on woot is tough. You're going against people from all around the world, and it is real easy to get discouraged. But if you like doing it, keep trying. It will definitely make you a better artist.

Agree. Too bad. I did not buy "Oh, Burned" because it sold out (not willing to pay the $15 for it). I would have bought this design and paid the $15 if need be. Sorry Fable! Let me know if it prints elsewhere!

Re: Dragon Flames



Very cool idea, and GMV.

One point to ponder though. The design looks like a dragon sitting on coals. Maybe if you were to define the bottom edge of the dragon less (no outline) in the right places, it would look more like the dragon IS the flame.
