Re: [url=http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=41324]A Tale of 2 Cities of War



While I loved both books, I'm not a huge fan of this shirt. They both had pretty dark themes, and this is such a lighthearted shirt.

Really nice composition and concept sir. I love the colors as well, and the fact that it's jam packed with great characters!

no other shirt pulled off so many characters with such a cohesive interaction. Good job on keeping it classic.

I made the llama stiff on purpose so that it almost looks like it doesn't care or isn't in any real danger, because I thought that would be funnier than having it flailing around in panic. I can imagine a scenario in which the squid just sets it down, and it goes about its business like nothing happened. LOL. I'm glad you appreciate it!

I still say it gets eaten though. ;P





I absolutely love that about this shirt. It has soooo many possible outcomes and each is just as delightful as the next.

Be sure to vote if you haven't and get others... We all want to buy it, imagine how AWFUL it'd feel if it didn't print... It may drive me to go llama hunting -_-

What a neat way of making the theme work outside the context of the derby. And very nice colors and characters to boot! GMV!

Re: Treasure Island/ The Sign of the Spider



You have a great sense of color in all your pieces and I really like your fun style. As a side note the fireflys in the rigging remind me of the flames you set in the old Zelda games

I love this design! It seems the most wearable from this derby so far. Here's to hoping it prints! <3

Re: Romeo and Juliet/Humpty Dumpty



I love the droplet pattern on her dress. The black lines on the foreground characters look a little thick compared to the rest of the piece, I'm assuming it was to define the foreground? Great job, just a bit girly for my taste

Why should it ever be? To paraphrase a popular and horrible joke, "what do you call art that's not yours? Nacho art!"

Parody still allows use of IP, but parody is not the all-encompassing blanket wooters, and all commercial artists, it seems, think it to be. Parody requires strong concept, it requires hintings instead of full-on showings, it regularly requires making a commentary. There is more to it than slapping Sam-I-Am on a tee with a plate of not green eggs and ham.

But even so, I see ZERO REASON why copyrights should -ever- expire. The only people who want that are people who want to profit off other people's work. You can do it differently and uniquely. You can come up with your own idea. People who say "everything's been done" are only half right... lots of stuff has been, but there's always more to be done. There is no reason that we should feel that we need Dr. Seuss's intellectual property to really be creative. Really creative people can already utilize Seuss without biting him.

Simply love this comfy, cozy feel! This design makes me feel like I can take "The Shop Around the Corner" book store with me where ever I go. Who wouldn't want one?! Where's my easy chair?

Re: [url=http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=41391]Myths of Norsemen / myths of Ancient greece



Bulfinch's Mythology is the classic resource for Greek myths translated into English. I am sure that there is something similar for the Norse myths. Therefore, this should be on topic.

Love the texture in the clouds.

Re: Baba Yaga - Wizard of Oz



Did you put a touch of orange on the green leg on purpose? Or was that from copy and paste? Just wondering because if it was a copy and paste oversight, you may have some orange on your green layer. At least I would...you appear to be an actual artist though so you're probably less likely to have that problem.

Re: THE CALL OF CTHULHU / MOBY DICK



Theres that awesome water again!(from the 5 element Dragons)That in itself is a treat!
I am glad you said Ahab wins this one he does look like he is a bout to triumph!

I hope you win and can buy yourself a new tablet for your birthday although noone would know from looking at this that there was anything going wrong with the one you have.

You 2 have done it again. I've never seen this cthulu creature before you and woot, didn't know he was a book character, will need to read the book!

Gave my Dad The Clockmaker (Was going to, but couldn't wait for fathers day) Told him about you 2 and he said That you were both very talented, quite the artists, he was impressed. Said he would wear it to the clock shop, he has a very fine cuckoo clock that cuckoos when it wants, not on the hour!


Happy Birthday TO Drakxxx, BlueTuba and David Letterman too, may all your wishes come true!

I like this but it feels like it should have been in the Egypt derby a couple months ago, it would have done great there.

That is why she isn't on a balcony, I felt like drawing a dress. Took the gift of your previous advice and decided to enjoy myself and stop pressuring myself.Thankyou, advice that makes a person free is a valuable gift!
