Did you see the movie? If you watched the movie, you would see what I mean. This person nailed that persona perfectly. I mean, they could have snagged it from a screencap!

Re: Murder Mystery





I got to wondering about the fine detail in the shirtcomp for this design, so I tried to recreate it. I opened a 16x20 300 dpi blank design, and pasted the image of the design into it. I then shrank the higher resolution detail picture provided in the shirt comp to the size of the 16x20 design. I drew a couple of cyan lines of 1 point diameter across the design, and made this image of the result. It looks to me like there are a variety of design elements that are much smaller than woot's 1 point minimum width limit. There are also a lot of lines that just fade away, as if they aren't vector elements at all. I suppose that they are gradients? I also see places where there are halftones that overlap, causing the minimum width of the covered halftone dot to be narrower than the 1 point limit. Overall, I see a lot in just this small piece of the overall design that looks to me as if it is in woot's 'unprintable' range.
I don't think I made errors in how I did this, but I'd like to hear in what way I'm completely wrong, etc. I'm still trying to learn this design stuff, myself, and I may be mistaken.

Second point, Yeti's can't be cute in a small way without looking ridiculous, I would have gone for a more gentle giant approach a la "A Goofy Movie" (although they did BigFoot).

Third point, the mountains look like a last minute addition tacked on without second thought and completely contrast the "cute yeti" look.

It's not a bad creation but I just don't get why it gets +333 votes during the summer time.



agreed. not taking anything away from this or any other design, but there are plenty of good ideas below with superior execution that never seem to make it. i guess most wooters like it cute.

Not really. The design is much more a generic slack jawed yokel hunter than anything. The khaki pants/flannel shirt/orange vest is iconic and far far far precedes Open Season. That and the two don't have any facial similarity whatsoever.

It would be the same as saying every bigfoot design should be rejected for copying Harry and the Hendersons. Ridiculous.

Um, I have to respectfully disagree and question your logic. Ths facial features are very similar I bet if a found a open season coloring book, that is exactly what you would find. The image included isn't the best example if you saw the movie, or grabbed on of those chocolatey movie books, the image is so close.
Plus, I must ask, do you have any artistic sense? The hunter is not of a similar style at all, except for color choices. He should be far more cartoony as well in order to keep proper rhythm. I think that is what threw me off the most. He is of a totally different style from the rest.
I am not advocating reject perse. But people should take back their votes do to replication. This is so chocolatey to mimic something that doesn't need mimicked. The bunnies and concept is great, but the hunter was phoned in... That is all I am getting at!

The hunter from Open Season is a very generic character design.... Vest? Gun? Boots? Bad facial hair.... Check Check Check Check and wait a second, the illustration hunter has a hat.. Hmmm... Let's look closer at this

Looks like your hunter has a puffy vest, the illustrated hunter does not... The hunter from Open season appears to be svelt and in shape, but the shirt hunter is obviously overweight and lumpy.. Open season hunter has a mullet and a 5 o'clock shadow, the illustrated hunter does not... Gun scope on open season, no scope on the illustrated hunters gun..

A lot of differences, JJJ.... The hunters style totally matches with the rest of the shirt design, did you look at the line weight?

Who the heck (besides you) ever watched Open Season on purpose anyway??

It sounds like you have some reason for jealousy or perhaps a vendetta against this style of illustration..... seems like an knee jerk reaction to say that people should retract their votes because the illustration of the hunter is "phoned in"...

I think your logic is the only thing needs questioning... Good day sir..

Taking apart his composition .jpg doesn't make sense at all, because it's not the file he submitted to be printed.

It's like you're taking apart a blurry photograph of bigfoot pixel by pixel to determine if bigfoot can exist.

LIKE I SAID, the attached image isn't the best portrayal of THAT hunter. In the movie, he IS NOT svelt, he DOES wear a cap, etc.
Um, as far as insulting the movie, it's kinda ironic that you would defend this generic image and insult a generic movie. That's like saying my chocolatey silk dragon shirt is better than your chocolatey silk drgaon shirt... On another similarity note; one of the main resolutions in the movie IS about sasquatch!

But the detail that CAN be seen has to fit. And, on the image, he has posted a higher resolution portion of the design, which is what I looked at, not the low resolution portion,; that part I only used to get the size right.
The lines are clearly narrower than 1 point, the dots are certainly smaller than 1 point. Furthermore, a line that is shown blurrier than the print file is going to be a larger diameter than the sharp version would be if anything. They look smaller here, which means that any visible blurriness makes the original even smaller than they show here.

If he's posting an image that isn't the same as his print file in the visible detail, then he's not showing the voters what they're going to get. At the resolution shown, it HAS to look the same as the final shirt print file will look. If it isn't then everyone is voting on a lie. I'm sure that the print file is essentially the same as the file made to produce his jpgs, he's not one who would mislead like that.

Oh, and there's really no mystery about bigfoot. The guys who took the famous photo have confessed that they faked it. I think the guy even still had the suit he wore in the photo. sorry.

and the famous photo of the Loch Ness monster? Also confessed to by the little penguins who created it as a fake. sorry again.

Even if he posted a higher resolution version, it's still never going to be the same as his vector file that will be printed. You can zoom in an infinite number of times on a line in the vector file and the edges will still be sharp. Not so in any resolution jpg. When an image is converted to a jpg, information is lost. That's the whole purpose of converting it to a jpg - to save file space. So if some lines and dots seem smaller than 1point, it's probably because the conversion from vector to jpg decided to discard that information. This isn't defending the shirt - just helping to clarify a point of confusion. If woot posted the vector files for everyone to see, it would put a lot more strain on their bandwidth and each page would load a lot slower.
