No man...What Drakxx means by that is, "Hey... Derby artists! You shall not pass" ...into the fog that is.

As usual epic design, Drakxx!!!

So I'm going in a different direction today. The pro-arson point of view, I guess. Haha. ;p

Firestarter




...I think I might use spark shapes instead of stars. Still tweaking.

I love how the things that will explode (the bomb, rocket, and TNT) seem to have more horror in their expressions than the things that will just burn. Or maybe that's just my imagination.

I'm just waiting for the inevitable turtle with a blowtorch threatening something furry like a squirrel. This will only be because bunnies with blowtorches are against the rules.

Or the red dragon with lots of twining flames aligned on the right side of a black t-shirt. Yeah, either one of those designs will be a shocker.

Maybe a puff of smoke from his nostrils, to make it more evident that he caused all the damage?

This has a very charming quality about it. It's cute, but there's an artful style about it. There's something maybe a little off about the dragon's eyes, but I love the trees. I like how they're all different.

Thanks spratman, kairanie and Josephus.

After a few more changes this is it:




I -did- make the explosive characters look more shocked. Good catch! ^__^

thanks for the input theinfinityloop
i agree in trees that aren't identical, kinda necessary. seeing what can be done with the eyes. much appreciated!

Should be up sometime during the contest. let me know how you fell about the drawing.



This is really a very pretty illustration, and I admire your work tremendously. But seriously? This is a scene lifted with only the scarcest of changes, directly from a hugely popular movie and book. There is no satire or twist.

This is like making an illustration of a phoenix carrying a kid with a wand out of a cave with a dead basilisk, and titling it "Fawkes".

Again, your work is consistently my favorite in these derbies, but this really isn't classy.

I'm disappointed in the lack of more serious artsy shirts this week. Hopefully there will be more added later!

CMDixon and Infinityloop will surely sub something pretty . It seems like the art driven folk come in a tad later so keep watching.

I am drawing something right now that may or may not be considered arty. I have no idea @_@. It's kind of weird, and probably won't appeal, but I really wanted to draw it. Alas, I have plans tonight, and I have to go habitat hunting tomorrow so I may not be able to finish her til super late. Blast! The Hall of Late Subs will forever be my kingdom.

I like the cute stuff so far but I am also waiting to see the pretty things that roll in a bit later. :D

yeah, I am in the same boat. I totally nixed the Terry Pratchett idea and no working on a Djinn. Wow how the mind wanders. Is there a snack bar at the Hall of Late Subs?

There is indeed a snack bar! We have ramen and peanut butter sandwich crackers...and sugar packets. :D

There are a lot of nouns that look happy to be on fire. I am considering this for myself.

Nickelodeon would then perform a firebending move on the unsuspecting artist. ^^; Then again, if you can't afford laser hair removal...might be a good option.

I have another design to submit this evening, I think.

quality posts: 2 Private Messages manikx66

here is what i have so far, will add scorched marks to the kids face and icecream cone where the drive bye dragon melted his treat. Also will have a smoke trail or puffs of smoke trailing behind the dragon as he flys by

need to add the center line to the boys tounge though maybe it would be better without him being in mid lick of the icecream????

let me know what you think thanks.

the composition with the story fire in the same spot as a real fire is awesome. I think the story teller log looks a bit like it's floating, higher than the other logs. maybe make it taller by stretching its bottom half down? love the characters and expression!

the idea and composition are funny, but there is a small anally retentive part of me that asks if cut logs aren't already dead anyway.
