That looks like some gradient shadowing there... or is my monitor just fuzzy?

Definately but, you know I never thought of it that! So yea, loungey feel...that's really cool... I like that!

I always love to hear what the art makes people think of or feel. I personally have a strong attachment to this era for some strange reason or another.

Re: Girl and swirls



Fair enough on the rejection. I'd developed a Josephine Baker-inspired composition, but it was a design inspired by Art Deco and using Deco motifs, rather than a design which was aiming to resemble pastiche Deco. Also, the hand-drawn style meant there was a tendency towards the organic rather than the geometric.

I swear, if this gets into the fog and wins any place, 1st 2nd or 3rd, it'll be the first shirt I've ever bought from this site. I love it!

You love this signature. It's awesome.

boy howdy. ;^)

ramyb, I've read both of your attempts to justify the design as 'on theme'. or 'on write-up'.

My big dissatisfaction with your design winning, or sitting in the fog and the hotness, taking away a place for something, oh, maybe Art Deco, is just that it clearly isn't Art Deco. Sure, there are elements that have some resemblance to Art Deco: you have some repeated geometric forms, you have quite a few gears (which at most have been a minimally 'art deco' motif), and apparently you feel that drawing something like a tall building, and then hiding that feature, is enough Art Deco to allow you to fit the theme. Yet, anyone who sees the design will never think "ooh, what a clever use of Art Deco in a novel way".

The contest is an Art Deco Contest. While woot's drunken writers may have described it in a less than perfect way, my impression from the writeup was more that they were trying to describe what Art Deco is, and failing, rather than that they were spelling out requirements for what is on-topic.

For a design to quite possibly win it that has virtually nothing to do with Art Deco is just wrong. If the theme is that boring to you, that to hold your interest you have to mess around so far from the actual theme that no-one who is honest with themselves can call it Art Deco, then why did you enter at all? You're allowed to take a week off, for Pete's sake.

Nice concept, but I'm betting that it is going to get rejected due to copyright.

Re: Construct



Well, after all the discussions, I still don't see what this has to do with the actual theme. It's not deco, in my opinion.

I'm also not sure that you understand opinion... so if I made something in the style of Dali, and someone said "that's not art deco," that would be opinion if I thought otherwise? because that seems to be your response.



That's because you're not an artist. You, my old and simple-minded friend, are the artistic equivalent of the slow gazelle in the herd that gets eaten by the lions on the discovery channel.

I still love you though. What would batman be without the joker around. He would be Bruce wayne a boring millionaire with no purpose.

And so, I thank you adder for making my time here so fun. And just so folks don't get the wrong impression, please realize It's all in fun and by no means do I wish any harm on adder or his cultish followers, and by no means do I wish a swarm of starving locusts to fall on his home and stay there.

re: construct



I don't see how this fits the theme. It was discussed pre-derby that it did not quite fit. Damn the rule torpedoes and let the legions of fans vote for it anyways.

Oh well, I guess that's why I am not a "real artist" but still try to bring something different and on topic when I do submit, (and end up unsuccesful in votes.) Meh, back to my engineering job...

Re: Construct



Alright Ramyb... It's time to come clean... Although I think you are a fantastic artist and you've had some pretty good shirt ideas in the past, I feel that your recent shirts have been very overrated. Unless woot has a ratio of 75% asian girls on their site, I don't see how your cutesie Chinese Zodiac shirt won in the last derby. And now your piano key shirt and this one are very highly ranked in another derby. I don't get it. Although both of these shirts are good, they don't seem good enough to be in the fog. Did you get a bunch of your friends to buy a leak frog each on woot so they can vote on your shirt designs? I'm not an artist by any means... but it just doesn't seem add up to me.

Ok.. Sorry, so the Chinese Zodiac shirt wasn't Ramyb's shirt design. But that doesn't dispute the fact that both of Ramyb's current shirts seem to be highly overranked in this derby. Does anybody else feel this way? I'll shut up if its only me. I'm just saying.
