For the same reason most rejections are happening this week. The point of the derby was to re-interpret the title of a famous piece of art. Instead of using a different style/scene/setting to depict a "starry night", this artist recreated Van Gogh's Starry night, but with a few twists.

That being said, I think this is a great first effort.

This is gorgeous, and I would want one... but for the storm drain. For some reason I find that distracting from the beauty. Just me?

I wonder how it would look if you made your images smaller to represent the full flag, but still keep the gothic texture...



Or put it vertical.

Re: The Phantom Landscape by Magritte



Thanks for the comments! I love doing book related designs like this one but they seem to be really tricky to make wearable and avoid that "two things right on your chest" look. One day I'll figure it out.

Re: Burning Giraffes in Brown by Dali



I'm still a sucker for any burning giraffe drawing... but wouldn't this one fall under the "Off topic, reinterpreting artwork, not title" rejection?

Lol, I thought that the first time i saw it too. But then I was trying to explain the connection to a friend and I realized that it's an alien in District 9, not a robot.. :X haha, still love it, and I love those paintings someone posted up earlier (!!)

When I saw the rejections for that I began to wonder the same.

Here is the original piece by Dali. I tried to draw something that was very different, concept-wise. It will be up to the staff to decide the fat of the poor flaming tall ones.

Yes, but how does this represent Don Quixote reinterpreted? Not the original piece, but the title?

Re: Tommervik's Robin



I gotta disagree with this rejection - yeah the artwork is reinterpreted, but so is the title. It's no longer a person named Robin, but the bird also called robin - removing the letter would have been a nice touch too but just because the artwork has been reinterpreted doesn't default it to off topic

I don't think that reinterpretation and recreation (but with twists, as you put it) are mutually exclusive.

So the rejectonator seems to be hitting some entries with no rhyme or reason - some entries are kicked for reinterpreting the art, not the title (although they do both) and then others that do the same thing are left alone. I know the rejectonator is fickle, but cmon, a little consistency please

The image quality is due only to image artifacting from reducing it. I spent FAR too much time making pen strokes on the actual design.

I'm always a sucker for dark green ink on a green shirt. Something about that color scheme just calls to me. And I really dig all the subtle little details here, especially the snake. I can see how Eve was so tempted!
