Re: Liquid Hibiscus



Wow. That was a lot to read.

Ok, first off, I want you to know that I voted for it BEFORE I read *ANY* of the comments. Then I started reading. And getting unhappy. I started feeling that maybe there was something wrong with *ME* because I liked this design. I am so very glad that you posted your sketches, and "proved" that these are hand-done drawings, and not a stencil or cut-out (I was unfairly accused of that, one derby well past).

In any case, who CARES if there are other similar shirts? Am I only allowed to own ONE flower shirt? ONE Koi shirt, etc? What if it's in the wash? People are voting for this because it is a beautiful shirt, nice colors, nice placement... just very nice.

As for the people who say you can get these for $5 on "the big island"? Good for them. I live in New York City. The subway doesn't go there.

Now, having said that I think this is a beautiful, and WEARABLE design, I will take this opportunity to say something that I have been holding my tongue on for some time now. There is one particular artist who often submits his works here. I do not care to mention names, which is why I never commented on any of his designs directly. I believe that his designs are VERY original, and extremely detailed, but the way he portrays them is, well, childish. I never understood why he zooms up into the fog every single time. His designs are interesting, as in I spend time looking at them (with interest), but I would never ever buy one. I have very similar quality drawings all over my fridge, drawn for me by my children, my nieces, nephews... well, you get the idea.
Now THIS design of yours I certainly would buy and wear. True the IDEA might not be "original" but it is very very well done. I hope it does well, and I would buy it were it to win. Please keep submitting designs!

P.S. Boni - DON'T LEAVE!!

Thanks for the input. The "face" was not intentional, guess I spent too much time on the rest of the background getting it to work towards the black and didn't notice. I should change it, but I don't have the files handy. Maybe on Monday I will be able to.

Boy, you've been busy! This is beautiful! I'm glad to see more artists putting people in their designs. Heroes is awesome. I can't wait for the new season.

Re: Maori Love Birds V2 (RESUB)



After getting some great feedback (thank you!) I decided to resubmit this design. If you voted for the first version, thank you and please vote again. If you haven't voted for it, check it out and, if you like it, please consider voting for it. I was quite excited to see this flirt with the hotness earlier and I hope to see this version do just as well, if not better. Thanks for looking and for your consideration.

As I mentioned in the first entry, this design was inspired by Maori/Polynesian tattoos, although I combined that inspiration with my own style. I decided to keep with the tattoo feel and went with the dark colors to fit. For the second version, I added the fancy-shmancy tail to the male, reworked the female's tail a bit, lightened up the female one level, and added a little space between where the birds overlap as well as between their faces and the heart for better delineation. Hope you like the new version. If so, please vote. And I always welcome critiques, good or bad, so your comments are appreciated.

Is That You? and I bought it anyways. Seriously, great design, I like that the food-tormentor is actually featured in the design. very funny.



Haters? Theres haters on here? I'm sure theres other over used memes that they can spit thier vitriol on and not bother little ole moi...

thanks for the kind words, and glad you like it. But i agree, i'm growing tired of the scared food theme too.. Maybe next week i'll do birds and trees.

Absolutely love this!!! I think it is beautifully executed! The pig retains the focus clearly, and yet the background people make it clear that the pig is at a luau without taking the focus off the pig! Not to mention the pig is well drawn and the motion is well defined! If this gets printed, I will be buying!!!

Never mind about the colors, you can't make everybody happy. Every shirt that wins has a comment about not liking the color choice. I would be very happy to wear this shirt as is, like I said before, beautifully executed.
