Re: Some Simple Saucers Soaring



Hi They killed kenny... I like black and white shirts (and flying saucers too!)!!

Do you ever submit to the daily woot contest? I get the idea that they prefer shirts with fewer colors , you know, an easier to print type of shirt than all these halftone six color prints that enter the derby.

This is your type of thing...one color designs...

You should enter a few designs for the daily, I am planning to do something summery, not sure yet, you should do something too!

JesseBYAH wrote:DAYUM girl! Your designs are just getting better and better. I've been a fan of yours since I saw you first submitting, and I can't believe how much your style has evolved in the last few weeks! This looks fantastic! The proportions on the mermaids seem a teeny bit off, but that is not too big of a deal. The colors may be a bit girly as well, but I think they were great choices for an underwater piece! Keep up the good work, snowqueen. I loooove this =)

Also, I am REALLY hoping you get an HM from the "Madness" derby. The Lady in the Woods is my favorite piece of yours, and I hope to see those trees in a future design! They were amazing!



Thanks Jesse! I was all about being in Jesse -mode when I picked the thumbnail...I really wanted to zoom in on the seashell selling mermaid but forced myself to back off, then I saw Drakxxx's closeup of his samurii (can't spell that word) and I was like, oh no, I wanted a closeup too! When submitting at 2 am you can't really think straight!!

Thanks so much as always for your feedback! Jesse =ALWAYS RIGHT!
Jesse for President!!

Re: Silent Seahorse



I have Sullen, and I don't think it printed too awfully bad. I was expecting worse from the furor on the boards. This is beautiful, kdeuce. A bit too 'beachy' for my personal taste, but still lovely. And, FYI, there are variants of seahorses that actually look like this - (this is a dwarf, but a relative) http://www.montereybayaquarium.org/animals/AnimalDetails.aspx?enc=n3f4wmcSJaO0z33cvrEuog==

Nice fast resub Lefty!! As I said on your first submission, I really like this design, the white shirt is really working for you here , it really says "Silence". ..and I love the artwork, a great job !


Could someone more brilliant than me please answer Leftys Question about his slightly squashed format?

I know what you mean. I always feel like I have a little bit of trouble trying to make the design integrated with the shirt and not just plopped on a background color. Thanks for the constructive criticism! I'll keep it in mind for next derby;)

This shirt makes me giggle.

People are always nasty here; best practice is to just get thick skin. And appreciate what positive comments you do get.

Did you trim your canvas before adding the image to the shirt design space? You may have some unused white/transparent canvas space squishing things on you...

Artulo asks for comments on design

Hi Artulo!
I love your glorious skateboarding owl, maybe the shirt comp with the black shirt covering it's wing should have been tinier (so you could see the whole wing) (but you did a beautiful job as always!)

I think the changes to the shirt really added to it, it's more appealing and clear what the idea is.

I think i know whats happening. the images displayed are obviously square in dimension and im posting in 16x20 dimensions. I'll just trim next time I post. I believe the PSD file is correct though.

It's super dumb, 'cause I was all ready to buy 3, one for me, one for my brother, and one for my brother-in-law, to go with the Villainous Victorian Velociraptor I bought for all of us on Day 1 of that shirt.

I don't know - the concept is funny, the detail in the artwork is terrific, the colors are attractive (I have one little quibble about the left wing placement, but...). Maybe it's just not the week for skateboarding owls? I gotta tell you, there are times (many times) when I scratch my head at what gets votes around here, and what doesn't.

Yeah, the PSD print-ready file needs to be the right size for printing, but the design detail and comp need to be square. If you're in Photoshop you can use the rectangular marquee tool, and tell it (in the top toolbar) to make it a 'specific size', then pull out 580X580 and 240X240 size chunks for the comp and detail (you'll have to temporarily resize the master).

Thankyou so much Chris, as I said already this shirt of YOURS is a beautifully controlled dynamic and surreally magical piece.

We love checking your portfolio page. You are such a huge talent.My very favorite piece you have done is "collision" , and this piece reminds me of that.

Also, your wife is pretty! I am so nosy, I enjoyed the shirt thread where we can see people wearing shirts. Your house is clean.End comment!

Edit: Hah, on second thought, maybe I wouldn't actually WEAR it to work. Probably shouldn't encourage seventh graders to stare at my chest to figure out the references...

Re: Six Super Soakers

This is really fantastic CapedCrusader, very clever how you squirted the letter S. And there's a lot of movement in the way you did each supersoaker, and each one is in a great style and colors. They have an almost painted look.

You should try selling it to the Supersoaker company;) Seriously, if the company is still around, it's a great advertisement for them!

Re: SAMURAI SHOWDOWN



I'd love to see this again at a later date, though I'm not sure how much you'd have to change it to be "significant".

If the samurai was more clearly visable, maybe a *little* less splatter so it's not so messy. But I do like some splatter if it was reddish and highlighted the bloody swath our hero just cut through his enemies.

I know there is beauty in fewer colors at times, I just think it this case it detracts from the detail.

Haha! You crack me up. I'm glad you like my portfolio page. I'm not always very good at updating it like I should.

Don't tell anyone but I'm nosy too. I love looking at peoples portfolios and seeing what sort of design work people do outside of woot. It's fun. Besides, it's fun to see other aspects to peoples lives. I always thought it'd be fun if Woot somehow had a profile page for designers so you could see pics of shirts they designed/own/love, plus a chance to put random info for people to read about them. I don't know, sort of a get-to-know your community type of thing. One of my favorite things about teefury is getting to read the little interviews.

Just realized what a dork I am.

Woot has kill shirts for pseudo text before:

http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=38280

http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=37961

To me this shirt begs the question: What is the distinction between text and squiggles? If a designer took a series of random chinese characters, randomly flipped them left to right, and randomly removed or added strokes would that be text or scribbles?

Personally, I belief if it looks like a meaningful sequence of symbols, even if it has no meaning, it should be considered text.

You're going to give me a big ego. If that happens, I'll be too cool for pictures on my portfolio and I'll have to be all recluse and unapproachable. Maybe I'll start wearing some weird hat, I don't know. Once I start wearing sunglasses while inside brightly lit buildings you'll know I'm in trouble. Don't do that to me. I don't want to be that guy.
