Edgar's design is an original idea with execution that, while not everyone's taste, is still impeccable and vibrant. I can certainly see why many wouldn't want to wear it, but it's a wonderful bit of work, utterly odd and interesting.

Ramy's is a muddled batch of cliches, with the half-assed execution we see time and time again from him. If you can't tell the difference, I can't begin to know what to say to you.

i cant help you with the first one, but the answer to the second is a definite "no".



I don't really get upset with Ramy's designs in and of themselves, but it's annoying when they win.

I post because it's a message board, so why the hell not? If only posts that did anyone any good were allowed, than there'd be no point in posting a damn thing, other than the odd critique.

Except that's what people do with Ramy, and his defenders freak out. They may be harsh critiques, but they're critiques.

That's foolish logic, and does nothing to address the main point. I mean, why even converse with anyone unless the purpose is to "do any good"? That's one of the weakest retorts I see bandied about on this site, and amounts to little more than a childish "I'm not listening!" It's a classic strawman.

I have no problem asking for help, and apparently the cool folks here have no problem giving advice. That's actually really cool, and I appreciate it a lot. There are some places where folks just hate and push others down, but you guys have really stepped up.

Much respect!

Ezshrkman wrote:How small can you go with the halftones for woot to accept it?



I don't know if woot has made any definitive statements, but the halftones on "sky fishing" from the flight derby are pretty fine. I measured them and the biggest individual dots are about .040 inches or about 3 points or 12 pixels at 300 dpi.

The halftones I used in the design are based on a cell size of 10 pixes so they are slightly smaller, but I think they would still pass muster. If not I could easily reapply the halftones with a slightly larger cell size.

I'm guessing woot only rejects halftones when they are used for very large areas, or are used to replicate a four color printing process.

Ezshrkman, no one at shirt.woot has ever asked me what sgreenip means. Thanks! It's a secret, though. If I tell, who knows what will happen. Hard boiled eggs falling from the sky? A river of melted peanut butter flowing in the streets? I can't risk it. And oh, I have always judged my success by how many votes, but I think I am going to switch to your placing method. I like that.

I haven't tried halftones because of the rules... but i see way 2 many designs with HT being printed. I am so new here that i don't wanna spend my hrs making a design and get "Rejected" slashed across my hard work. For god sake i just learned that you can lock the transparent area of your layer for coloring.
I have been watching tutorials on PS and inksacpe during every free moment i get.
I apreciate your response and youe design should definaltley have more votes in my mind
Thanks Lagbert
See u next week i hope!

LOL! I think it might mean that you are a sexy green Asian... or if you mix up the letters it could be "penis reg" I don't know what that is...but i would keep it a secret 2! LOL!
As for the placing method. i was so proud of my fish and thought i had the slightest chance of getting some descent votes. Some of the designs that are above mine just make me think that my fish must be total gristle. I just know that someday one of my ideas will be a winner.

Don't worry about rejections too much. You can usually rework a design to get around them. They can be great learning experience too.

I've been teaching myself inkscape too. It's a great program. Your style is very clean, so you can probably do all of your work in vectors if you want to.

Thanks! I'm surprised you don't have more votes. I think your thumbnail might be working against you.

Good Luck!

Re: Loco Luminescence



Nice entry. One thing that others here helped notify me of, you should put your thumbnail image of your entry in your signature. Go to my account and paste the info in the bottom dialog box. I'd suggest doing it in notepad first then pasting it. If you do multiple images don't put in any return breaks just a space or else it stacks them. Keep it up!

Is that reddish-pink color the same throughout? (the hair ties and the scribbles?) I can't tell it it's six or seven colors because of that. If it is six, it's a pity this wasn't submitted earlier because it isn't bad.

Dude, you are cracking me up! Oh, and by the way, negative on the sexy green asian, but penis reg? Not sure what that is either, so I can't rule it out. And also, I consider myself a decent cartoonist, and I don't think I could ever have made an Angler Fish look as likable as you did. Props!
