binkdrop wrote:An explanation of the design!! Yayy!

Red Giant and White Dwarf are enjoying a game of marbles. To further explain how this fits the space theme, Red Giants and White Dwarves are both star stages, and the "red giant" and "white dwarf" are playing marbles with our planets. Pluto is out of the marble ring because it was revoked of "planet status".

Credit goes to my rather clever boyfriend for coming up with the "Red Giant, White Dwarf" idea.

I hope this one is able to print. I really, really do. : )




Bink Drop,

this is an awesome shirt!
I remember when it was in the Derby the first time and it really stood out. The colors are awesome. If you dont mind me asking, what software are you using?

It was a joke, Adder; get over yourself. It only makes you look foolish when you get your panties all in a twist, slinging insults back at people when what I said was meant in jest.

Hi RebellionCH! First of all - thanks for the wonderful compliments!

For this one I sketched it out on paper, drew the outlines in Macromedia Flash, and then colored it in Adobe Photoshop. Flash has a tendency to help smooth lines and make them cleaner. When I try and ink things in Photoshop it takes more time and usually ends up less sharp. :p

"besides, liking Edgar's work makes you hypocritical" was a joke?

Man, people say -I- need a better sense of humour

Unless you meant the "man crush" part was a joke. In which case, I wonder how little credit you give me to think I didn't catch that, and still continue to wonder what the hell you meant by the other bit.

Just caught site of this discussion. Could I ask why you switch over and color in photoshop instead of coloring in flash?

I think whether or not the black shows on the navy is largely irrelevant. It will look somewhat different than displayed, but should maintain roughly the same look.

You're so argumentative.

So, to clear things up, the first part about the man crush was a joke, which I'm glad to see you got. The second part too was poking fun at you rather than a full blown accusation, hence the ":O" face, but I'll go ahead and change that now to just "you're a hypocrite".

I just found it strange that after campaigning for so long about quality art, you took a liking to Edgar's style. I'm not saying he can't produce quality work, I was just saying that of all the people you choose to openly and fervently endorse, it struck me as odd that he would be the one.

The man-crush part was because your explanation of why you like his work didn't completely make sense to me. It just sounded like you are one of those people that thinks the crack addict on the street corner, spouting out warnings of the impending apocalypse, is "insightful", because he's saying something that no one else is, and is therefore "thinking outside the box".

As to your comment earlier, "Many other designers bring the same nonsense every week, so that even when they step out of the box (not that they do often, or go very far out), it seems generic and uninteresting..."

It probably seems generic and uninteresting to you because you don't give people a chance. You seem to think the worst of everyone right off the bat, especially if they're not within your little following of cult members you seem to have attached yourself to here on Woot.

I won't step down and stop challenging you and your thoughts just because you've been on this site a long time like some people do. I won't stop questioning you just because you're snarky and a jerk, and I won't stop pointing out when I think you're being a hypocrite.

I will, however, avoid having long and drawn out conversations with you about nothing; so unless you bring up a particularly interesting point that I think needs addressing, I'm pretty much done with this conversation here. We don't need to fill up this forum with stupid. (Yes, I did just use stupid as a noun.)

But go ahead, Adder. Bring it on, and be a jerk to me. It won't phase me, because I'm totally out to get you now. >:D

^ See that very last part was a joke. Maybe.

Jasssssneko! :p I color in Photoshop mainly because I don't normally do t-shirt designs, thus I became accustomed to using all of the great tools Photoshop had to offer that Flash just doesn't do. I still use Photoshop to color mainly out of familiarity, plus sometimes I like to use different brushes and tools that I only have available in Photoshop and not Flash (like for a grunge effect or something). Another reason is I don't like how flash erases (it always erases more than I want it to), and Photoshop offers more control and precision for me when it comes to coloring.

And I think we already talked about this a while back, but the reason I stick with Flash for the outline instead of just doing it all in Photoshop, is because when I try and ink things in Photoshop it looks like I was riding down the highway over a thousand speedbumps while doing it. :D

Ohhh you people here are rather fickle!



I'm personally unfamiliar with most of his work. I just love this design to pieces and have been waiting for the double take derby every since this one didn't print last time.

I do like both versions and I have voted for it (again). However, looking at it again I wish woot had some kind of light pink/orangey yellow (muted) shade. I think this comp would look beautiful on a background of that colour.

eHalcyon wrote:So is the pink-ish part an orange halftone? Or is the black the same dark blue as the darker halftones in the clouds?

I don't doubt that only six colours are used (I'm not always a fan of his pieces but Edgar definitely knows what he's doing). I'm curious as to which colours were actually used though. The watercolour effect is great.

I also keep coming back to this design and trying to figure that out. The texture of the shirt behind the shirt makes it also harder to see. I'm curious to how the water color effect was created with the color limits... would love to see a larger detail image to take a look!

Hmmm.. interesting! You are right about the control for coloring. I guess I like the ease of sizing with vectors, so usually ready my designs pantone/printready-wise in illustrator after flash and only the comp gets made in photoshop.
But perhap's I shall experiment with coloring in photoshop sometime, if the mood hits!
And yup, I remember (and agree) with the shaky thing that happens in photoshop when inking!
Thanks for the reply=)

Beautiful linework, art. You have my vote for sure. The way it's laid out, with such perfect symmetry, would make for an uber-wearable shirt.

That's an excellent point. This design would've looked great on AA slate grey, imho. Wish woot would expand its selection of shirt colors like they hinted at way back when. Alternatives to asphalt, white, and cream would be particularly enticing (I'd love silver and slate to be added for those reasons).
