Thanks for all the positive feedback everyone - I had fun with this design, especially the colors, and I'm glad many of you like it even though I put it on a lemon shirt ; )

ditto. I saw the cow design first and later found this design. I had assumed they were by the same artist b/c there are drastic similarities...you should've made a point of making your design more unique by at least using a different color scheme.

shirt is navy not brown, outline is red not orange, text is white not black. so not sure why everyeone thinks this is the same thing besides its a unicorn not a cow :P

So, Machete sporting chef's knives, salt, pepper, tongs, steak knives... Not meat related? That'll teach me to remember to link to a bigger comp.

I was really torn on what to do about the spam. I thought it made sense evolution-wise, but there isn't any real distinguishing feature to it, other than it's squareness. My other idea was to use a hamburger, but that didn't work as well in the concept.

Re: falcondog



Even if the falcon got the hot dog, do you think he could eat it all?

As much as hot dogs are not a part of my diet, stylistically I love this shirt and the caricatures of each animal.

I really do like the concept. Keep your stuff coming, though man. You are very talented and I was like seeing what you create every week.



Riiiiight. I got the connection right away. Maybe you should check your connectors.

Also, I just tried the lengua for the first time. It tastes like beef, but there's also something else in there that I can't compare the flavor to.

It was out of the fog for a little bit there but then I voted. :D Looks like it's fighting with the turkey. That's the one that took it's place and that's the one that left the fog when I voted.... hmmmm wonder what that means.

Um - the euphemistic phrase, 'beating the meat' is the reference. You mean, you didn't intend the entendre? I'm actually disappointed!

People really like color here. my picture looked to fake with the colors I added. I wish I knew how to blend.



It's called a halftone, and strongly discouraged by Woot, yet widely used. There are a number of helpful threads with advice, tutorials, etc., here.
But, I liked your drawing as-is.

pickabattle wrote:Anybody have any feedback for me on this design? I'd really appreciate the help. I wasn't sure about the color combination (cranberry / lemon). Also, I wasn't sure whether to color in the individual elements or not. I started to and then scrapped it in lieu of this version. Thanks!



I'm still learning, myself, but I'll take a shot.
I think this is composed nicely, and I like the choice of shirt color. If I'm not going to use black lines, I like dark colors like navy, a dark green, brown... Cranberry wouldn't have been my first choice, but it looks good.
To color this, you'd have to remove some of your shadning, and beef up your linework quite a bit first. This would probably look great with a faded, muted color scheme and some halftoning for the shading. I don't think you'd want to go for full-blown saturated colors.
My opinion, fwiw.

How is this not in the top 9???? I've been keeping my fingers crossed for a baconoctopus shirt for the last week and I'm going to be crushed if I can't get one.

WHAT?!?!?
This sucks. I had my finger hovering over the mouse button with the pointer hovering over the exact spot where the "buy button" would appear in my browser as soon as this shirt went up for sale.

This entry (indeed a re-submit) could have used some improvement from the initial concept, which wasn't bad at all.

Thanks for the comments. ^__^

I'm strangely fond of this design, unloved though it is. Or maybe that feeling is hunger.

Bad time to point out that the 'oyster' bits are a little further back? That bit that hangs down is the male-bit, but not the 'oyster' bit.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

If you don't see the creep factor, what about the design signals "anti-McDonalds"?
