We're looking for designs that mess with perspective. Maybe they bend it, maybe they foreshorten it, maybe they Escher it, or they DESTROY IT ENTIRELY! Or maybe you just wanna make a design that's like a first-person video game. We don't care, as long as the perspective is funk-ay to the max.

hmm... not feeling too inspired on this one. I'm expecting fablefire to win with foxes playing hide and seek on Escher style stairs

I have several ideas. Which I can actually pull off and which ones are actually appealing to tshirt wearers is the challenge to figure out!

Is there a rule against using half-toned textures? I only ask because they are pictures, but it seems like artists sometimes make use of them.

Will I be rejected if I do one representing a different outlook (perspective) on something? This is not necessarily the art school version of perspective.

We're looking more for the art school perspective on this one. Otherwise we'll get a bunch of oddball characters who are "different" and that's not really what we're shooting for on this one.

Not sure that worked. If it did, what do you think?

It didn't work? Go here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152394076247225&set=a.330931277224.146675.634247224&type=1&theater

After laboring for hours trying to get something artistic to work and failing, I came up with this. I think it fits the theme!

they'll reject that, i guarantee it. remove the M from his hat and your chances are much better of not being rejected. Nicely drawn, btw.

I think it is a clear enough parody though. But probably a good call on the m, I was already debating whether to put it in.

Well, do what you will, but I've seen people sub with the M, get rejected, resub without it and that one sticks. Just saying this isn't a guess, it's based on stuff I've seen.

[MOD EDIT] I liked the pic, but that 's' word, can't have it here. Sorry.

umm...I asked earlier in the thread whether or not this approach would get rejected. I was told they REALLY are looking for perspective drawings. Yikes! I don't know.

Forsee. They almost always will reject Mario with the m on the hat. And you also have to wonder if it will get rejected for not being on topic. It might come down to their definition of perspective.

The joke in my design I think is on topic because it is references a change from 2d to 3d. This enables Mario to go around the pipes that he previously had to jump over. If the joke isn't clear, than it probably could get labeled off-topic. Either way I enjoyed making it.

Heck, Walmazan got away with a Star Wars reference the other week when there was a rule against it.

I've been saving this for the right derby. Do you guys think this fits the theme? I'm worried about getting lost in the flood of pop culture, but I haven't seen a 'no pop-culture' rule in a while. Any one remember the last time?

Dude- that is phenomenal- and you have wild perspective with the turtles getting infinitely smaller- SO, yeah, it fits the theme, and that's without mentioning the other interpretations of perspective that could apply.

...still want a teapot floating in it but that is likely just me-

Sub it so I can buy it-

Hi Wooters.... i have 2 versions of a design I'm working on. Which do you prefer? I'd love your opinion. Stomach or Heart?

I would like the second one with a splash of color like the red in the first one. But either way you go, you should consider breaking up the edges so it's not so boxy. Just remove a bunch of puzzle pieces to give it a nice flow.

/2 cents

Thanks man, I guess I'll give it a go. It's a collab with Cu3ik.

I agree with Orabbit on the coloring of the second one and the edges. But I like the heart better. IMHO.

I don't see the stomach.
The whole does need a splash of red, so I like the first... or the second if you redden it like the first.
I also wondered if you wanted to draw puzzle marks and remove some puzzle pieces from one of the children...because they are part of the puzzle, too... for a different perspective inside a perspective? Does that make sense?

My weekly skill practice.... I mean submission. Just imagine a strange universe where President/ vampire hunter Lincoln did not have small wooden logs named after him. Perhaps, even imagine these so called Lincoln logs do not exist...Duh duh duh. In this distorted reality along comes a simple man, an artist, named M.C. Escher. Although this man has ben blessed with somewhat charming facial hair, he struggles throughout life, until, one day he stumbles across an idea; an idea for a children's toy oh so perplexing... without further ado ESCHER LOGS....

I wondered about the blue and red glasses, and then realized he was doing 3D... is he looking at 3D and seeing it as 2D or am I just too tired to figure it out?
I don't know the Mario franchise and the pipes. (Am I the only artist here who doesn't know that?)

This is about the idea that the world is flat and is balanced on the back of a giant tortoise... and what holds that up? Why, another tortoise, of course!
That's a reference to mythology. (See "Turtles all the way down" in Wikipedia.) But I don't see that as pop culture.

I'm not seeing the Escher effect in the logs. Maybe the illustration is too small? It would be larger in the finished shirt, but it needs to be more obvious on a small computer screen.

A good start, clearly Escher... I just think something could be done with the dogs... except for showing one behind the twisted thingy, the dogs don't change in any engaging way.
Don't suppose you could make them gradually turn inside out without being grotesque?

Haha. I'm not sure I can do that yet. But here is another attempt. I have it on black and cranberry shirts too. What do you think?!

I meant that sometimes it's hard to rise above the waves of pop-culture, and that this design might get pushed down the rankings by Zelda/Star Wars/Heisenberg/TMNT.
