Re: Captain Ahab



Hey SnowQueen

I like how every week your designs have a very distinctive style, and I can tell that it's by you. Normally though I just don't like the way your designs actually sit on the shirt.

This design, however, I think looks good on a shirt! You've taken away some of the boxy/framing elements and let this one "float" a little bit more. And I really like the details/hatching on the whale.

Definitely a step forward for me. It took me a while to figure out how to make my own art look good on a shirt (being more than just a pretty picture). I hope your work continues to move in this direction.

Good luck!

Nice adjustments. This one is much better.

Couldn't have said it better myself. I'm down with murkiness if it's intentional and well done. This shirt is a hot mess.

Re: The Clockmaker

When I saw the linework for this in the pre-derby thread, I thought this was one of the best pieces I've seen from you ... and CrescentDebris still managed to match that - love the highlights on the clock and lighting.

Awesome job guys.

The name of your design makes me hungry! As always your design is as beautiful as it is intricate, I love the colors and the little crazy dude in the middle!

Re: My best friend



I love this! My favorite part is easily the shadow where the invisible friend is. Very clever.

But it's on white. I would be all over it if it were on a different color. Nice work, though.

Thankyou Jesse, for this and the other comment. I really would have liked to keep detailing this one forever, I didn't even use all 6 colors, but forever is one day around here!

We 'll see if anyone looks at it. Thanks again hon!

Thankyou Drakxxx, I appreciate that so much. I haven't had a chance to compliment your other design yet , trying to formulate what I want to say but basically, the way you depict human beings is absolutely mesmerizng..I love the little girl right down to the crown on her head!

Your dedication inspires me to try harder and for that I must thank you. (Thankyou!)

Thanks again for the tips & advice. You're helping me immensely here! I like the tracing paper & ink idea. I've never been a big fan of illustrator (even though I learned it back in the 90s in a graphic design program). I may try out some of the other stuff you guys said, but for now I'm most likely going to be a strictly hand-drawn designer.

Good luck on the derby!


Cripes, Sub, thanQ for those questions! I gotta find a way to bookmark this thread so I can keep that advice in mind. Just bought a tablet, and may eventually upgrade my software. But advice from these folks is worth its weight..
And good luck - you have an awesome first entry!

Hi again Jesse, Thankyou so much for this nice comment here, I guess I am figuring out the formula

a) Do not sleep
b)Get it done by friday
c)One good one = better than 2 bad ones

(The hardest one is getting it done by friday, thats the toughee!!

Xazy thankyou so much. I appreciate your comments on my work.
It is very helpful to hear such straightforward advice. I love your work and I enjoyed checking out your blog (several weeks ago)it's so nice when you get a chance to SEE who others are on this site, a real treat, so thankyou for that! (I want to make a blog , when I do you will see me too! I look like my picture from the nightmare derby of the mom with 2 kids locked in a cabin with a bear at the window!
Thanks for liking the whale, I have always wanted to take a stab at this subject matter so I am happy that I got this great chance.
-bye for now!

LOL! Pastor, you rock! Definitely got my vote (not GMV - the real deal).
Art-wise this is great, just wish it had a bit more pop to better portray the manic character you do. I do love the distressing, but maybe just make the specs more solid...

Definitely one of those subs that is literally too good for Woot. I can only hope for the best. Someone mentioned this was composed similarly to I Met System I. Yes, indeed, and far surpasses it in quality. Drakxxx and CrescentDebris complement each other SO well...

You know, I think a better thumbnail would get you more attention. I was interested in the thumbnail because i wanted to see the crazy lady, haha... but if you zoom out a little and keep the witches' face in there, you can also include some of the house and the trees- where the greatest (and most impressive) detail is. Just a thought =) I really think it would help!
