Re: Tornado Time



It's good looking, but I think it would do much better in a different color... I look at this and think "water tornado?"

I had something to say, but I seem to have forgotten it.

oh dear. now there's decisions. I'm voting for both... but I'm trying to decide which I like better. I think this one looks more like a cereal box... but I do like them both.
love the expression on the tiger. it makes me happy.

I liked the kelly green version in the pre-derby thread, but still adorable - especially the sprig of cilantro!:D

Vote!

Unfortunately, the thumbnail for this does the actual shirt little justice--this is effing brilliant.

Re: Tall Tales of The Midwest



better late than never.
I'm not sure people will dig the design. I wasn't going to finish it but I'm not a quitter. So I got it done went with sepia aged feel on creme. I know people hate creme but it was fitting. Any comments are appreciated and definitely open to any feedback.
here's a link to a 16x20 detail version of the design.

Re: turtle tutoring



From the Derby description: "And stay away from pop-cultural personas and properties (like the afore-mentioned Misters) and do something original."

Huh.

WOW! Awesome art.

I have a couple on here and I'd buy yours way before either of mine.
Best of luck to you brother.

While I do think making money is OK and that this shirt is well done for what it is, I wouldn't vote for it, because I prefer something other than cute turtles drawn in this style. I can't design a shirt like this, so if I wanted one, I could turn to ramyb for a generous supply of them. But I don't really want one.

In fact, I am also sick of dinosaurs and shirts praising the eating of meat, but no one seems to mind those being in every single derby. And I'm sorry if this hurts someone's precious artistic sensibilities, but if it came down to it, I'd prefer this largely expressionless turtle to a shirt with a hamburger or a dinosaur.

Luckily, I don't have to vote for or buy any turtle, dinosaur or meat shirts.

What frustrates me is that there are artists here who put substantial effort into creating original, intelligent, edited designs that are so often over-looked. Many of these artists' styles, I do not like so it's not like a "I want my artists to win" kind of thing.

Further, this designer has a history of stealing designs.ideas, not following the derby rules (sometimes blatantly ignoring them), and lacking any effort. This design, for example, is on topic but is nothing close to an original idea (see posts above for similar shirts). Further, there are blatant problems with the design itself like the perspective. And, it's just boring and looks exactly like 1/3 of his other designs. The other 2/3 are made up of swirlies and anime-like art.

It gets really frustrating when a shirt like this prints ahead of other artists who have respect for both the community and art.



I understand your dissapointment. However, reality shows that the general wooters get what they want, and what they want is what they vote for. This isn't a deserve-to-win competition, and that's because Woot wants to sell the product most wooters like. Whoever wins does, and thats because people like voting on art that appeals to them, right then and there when they click on the derby image. Not everyone takes into account the hard work of artists who submit designs every week and never win. It's too bad the art critic's comments don't appear before the image, but that is good marketing on Woot's part to make sure they don't lose customers. Only a few people actually scroll down to watch the epic forum battles that are waged across work like ramyb's. Unfortunatly, derby's aren't only about who has the best art. It's also about who can appeal to the large pool of wooters through the use of common themes and interesting artistic tequniques.

For a cleaner preview you can see it on my DA page

The preview on your Deviant Art page looks a lot better. I highly recommend you start halftoning at an angle of 22.5 or 67.5 degrees. This will prevent the problem in the future and will make your shirts when they print look a lot better - woot does a scaled down version of the print for the ladies sizes and if you don't halftone correctly for the full size the women's prints get a bit jacked up.

Also those wondering why there's a fannie pack and glasses must have never watched Nickelodeon back in the '90's. ;)



Hooray for Rocco's Modern Life. Thanks for catching the reference, I completly missed it because I'm too caught with Ramy's clip art.
