Man....first Santa, then the Rapture, now this...



No, and I didn't admit to being "Fat," either. It's "nice" because it shows how close I got. If I traced it, I would've had this in on Friday. I don't cry over spilled woots, I just learn and "keep swimming."

It's "rejected," and we know why, 'nuff said. They told us, if you parody too close, it's in jepordy of rejection, and not to whine about it. I played it too close, got chopped, and I haven't "whined" once.

I had some work come up, or I would've re-done it. I decided to save the others I did and recycle them in future woots. I leave for Phoenix, tonight, for a week, so I'm pretty much done with this derby. So, be nice while I'm gone or I'll bring my pencil.

See y'all next derby. I'll try to be more "original" in the future. Thanks for playing!

I actually had him looking more realistic and with the motorcycle but I changed it last minute after i saw what happened to blinddog3d. My thought had been keep it similar to original but make him a werewolf. So I went in a direction to ensure there would be no rejection. May post another entry soon.

I'm not putting it down - it's a good composition and attractive overall. Just 'splaining that pretty much all of the elements here originated as photos or drawings that became open-source vector art, like this, and this.



naaa, theres not much science involved but a big mess in a super hurry of paint brush , smudge , eraser , bluring, gradients, and lots of halftoning and distress process to try to create a good overall looking composition thats all, here the link for a larger view so you can see how bad my birds look compared to the vectors you said i used, if i were used vectors it would look way better but a trick here for me was to create in a very fast way a nice overall look instead of detailed individual elements.

Except the film strips are the only thing keeping this entry *remotely* on-theme. Without them, it's just another painfully generic Woot tee with swirls & birds.

While the image would work well enough as, say, a desktop wallpaper, I just can't see this as a wearable shirt. Clearly though, I seem to be in the minority.

Re: Gone With The Color



Here's my thing: You say that your granddad said that all the magic went out of the movies when color arrived. You also say that your granddad's favorite American film was Gone With The Wind. GWTW was in color.

My other thing is that the world is in color. Black and white films weren't black and white (mostly) because it was artistic. Black and white films were in black and white because it was available and then because it was affordable.
Embrace the color. (in movies, that is, not always in shirts, although if every shirt were grayscale, what a boring world it would be.)

Of course, none of this has anything to do with the actual design, which I like --- except for the film strips on either side. And if your inspiration had been Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds, that would have been great. (Of course, IMDB says The Birds was also in color.) As it is, the shirt is off-title.

Re: Soak the Witch!



The super-soaker is too foreshortened - the height of the gun diminishes too quickly for the apparently length, giving it a distorted effect, yet the witch seems in good perspective. Also looks like it's being held over to the shooter's far left side awkwardly, like he's shooting around a non-existent corner.

The perspective is spot-on. The gun looks great, actually. What it needs is a "squirt of water!" But, I think it's fine as is, because it's implied.

Ooo, snap. I didn't tattle, honest. It takes something pretty egregious for me to complain. Sorry, this probably would have placed in the final three.

Re: All you need... (v2)



You design can't be out to the edge of the shirt. Keep the design inside the bounding box on the template.

I am living proof. I have submitted 122 shirts, and never finished higher than 14th place. But it's fun, so I keep plugging away.

This is starting to annoy me. I checked the artboard. It's at 16"x20". I even made sure that there were clipping masks in place to keep clear of the artboard edges.

Are we talking like a 2% reduction on the art to keep it obviously clear of the margins of the template? If that's the case, let me know as soon as possible so that I can mock up a v3.

Make sure the original file is 16x20 at 300dpi. That way all you have to do is copy and paste the design straight into the shirt template. It should fit perfectly then.

It was created on the shirt template in the first place. As far as I can tell there's no issue with going over 16"x20". I'll resub a smaller one.

Re: Forbidden Future



I'm in awe of the detail. The first time I saw it I was like "that robot kind of looks like Bender" and thought it sort of took away from the monster movie style but as soon as I saw the one eye and realized that it was all on purpose, it made the design great! This is a perfect example of how to reference something without tempting the rejectionator!
