Re: Fun in the Sun



this is really cute, but it feels too big for me to wear comfortably.

maybe a little smaller? and I wonder about a blue shirt instead of cream, then it wouldn't need as much ink.

great concept never thought of a dragon cooling off!

L O L Thanks jbedwar! Yeah we actually roast lots of marshmallows in the summer. It's like THE thing to do when camping. (we don't camp in the winter here considering it snows by Halloween, in most cases) Especially like this weekend. it's in the 60's here and partly cloudy, so it's been relatively cool. The fire keeps us warm and entertained, and mostly entertained with burning food items L O L

Because for a lot of people ... the votes aren't for the "Talent" or how Nice the artwork looks. It's simply a vote for a shirt they would like to win so that they can buy it because they think it will look good as a shirt. A lot of times, people spend so much time on artwork that doesnt really look all that good on a t-shirt or is hard to explain or whatever. Where as this one is nice looking for a shirt.

JadenKale wrote:You know, I agree with you on the cattails now that I'm looking at it (cattails in seed would be cool) But I'm going to say again, the black is going to be lost. If it's hard to see on royal, it's invisible on navy (and the only reason why I know this is due to my Nessie print) and over two thirds of the detail will get lost... mainly the bees and the tips of the grass.



I saw your comment the first time (I really appreciate it, by the way), but didn't get around to changing it. I sort of had to submit and run at that point. I'll poke at it tonight. I tried different colored outlines when I was first working on it, and it made the fireflies look very peculiar, so we'll have to see.

As for the cattails, I actually thought about them when I was originally planning the idea. The thing is that they would I would probably have drawn them in beige, so the focal point of the picture would fall on the brighter colored fireflies. This wouldn't have been bad, but it would have made the design very top heavy and a little dark (even for something titled "summer nights"). I decided to specifically look for a type of flower that blooms even during the summer, to add some brightness to the whole thing.

Maybe the reasoning seems a little weird, but that's what it was. XD

Again, thanks so much for the feedback.

Some people won't see summer in it, I know. It really depends on the sort of climate you live in. Where I live, we get really hot days as well as really rainy days. Here's hoping that Woot is ok with it!

Just let it go and chalk it up to experience. Besides, the idea was hardly ever new. The concept wasn't as original as say:

Re: Idol Summer



what a cool totem pole of summer!

I see no beach chairs, sailboats, or swimmers, but that might be our beach-centered view of the world. it's stll cool and gmv

Nice details. My skeeter is jealous. Considering its one of the ideas Woot threw out there I dont think anyone can claim ownership...

seems a bit too intricate, then again I'm not sure as a person isn't wearing it

MKugs wrote:How did you get the great faded/vintage look?



Photoshop, photoshop, photoshop. Specifically, I desaturated and jacked up the contrast on a tree bark photo (any photo of anything with vertical texture will do). Then I deleted out its white areas, leaving just black texture, which I selectively copied and pasted over the samurai and his stuff.

Thanks

I see an angry midget, a baseball batter, and a cowboy with a gun handle hanging out of his pants. They're just clouds, you can see whatever you want.
