Why, it's the mating dance of the Blue-footed bubi! His dancing looks awkward and ridiculous because "bubi" means "stupid fellow" in Spanish! Hooray!

Re: Salt and Pepper (resub)



I like this one, but I liked the original better. It made the point excellently, with the shakers made out of lines. This kinda messes up the meta-pointillism by having the shakers done in that style as well. =\

I still got some gummy bears, if you're interested. Haha. :P

Thanks bellarific!

Phew, took me a few minutes to find this thumbnail. I came HUNTING for this design today, because I think it's completely fabulous and I want to own it. And I want my boyfriend to own it as well so we can wear it everywhere we go.

Please win, little blobby guy with a suitcase and amiable family/friends.

Re: I am become death, the destroyer of worlds.



While I really appreciate all the details you put into this, I feel like the overall piece looks sort of flat. I don't personally care for it, but I'm also not really familiar with this style of art. Was making it look.....sort of like cut outs of textures....intentional?

Re: Orbital Rendezvous

I wouldn't wear it as a shirt, but again, I really do love this design. You really did a fantastic job with the body language/positioning - love is definitely in the ... space!

This shouldn't be in the fog right now.

Because it should have printed during the original derby instead of the schlock that didn't even fit the theme.

Re: Steamworks Operatica V.2



This is not typically the kind of stuff I'd wear on a shirt, so I always neglect to comment on your designs, and I've just realized that THAT is a complete travesty. You're extremely talented, Draxxx. I can tell from the love you put into these designs that you breathe art, which makes you the type that inspires other artists. Mucho respecto.

That this design was inspired by the works of Japanese pop artist Takashi Murakami?



Were You Aware?

That 36% (4 out of 11) of my derby entries to date involved characters wearing bowties?



Thank you Woot and voters for giving this a second chance!



No wonder it looked familiar! Good luck again omnitarian your air submission definitely has my vote! :D

I did not know that. I would much rather have the Red Giant/White Dwarf shirt than this one. I guess I just don't really "get it" with the bird dance. Oh well, it's early in the Derby yet.

And also, dancing is a traditional way in unlocking a woman's heart. Too bad I never had a set of the dancing keys. I guess I lucked out, or should I say locked out? Mwahahahahaha *sigh*

GMV. As stated by others before me, I think the colour choices here really make this piece pop, and I like the intricacy of the detail.

No, I don't think it's more than 4 or 5 colors, it's just got a lot of halftone work. It would have been rejected last time around if it went over the limit of 6.

EDIT: Yeah, I think I see 5 colors total.
