This is super cute, super clever, and very well done. Deserves to be printed.

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.



Very clever my young padawan! Do not follow in my footsteps or you will face the wrath of the rejectionator!

I think it's freakin' awesome! I want 3!

Wow hope I didn't ruin your whole day. I believe there is a difference between appropriating and making an homage to something though. Sometimes the appreciation is commentary enough.

Thanks a lot! That means a lot coming from an artist like you. VERY impressive hand skills on your design even if the rejectionator got it.

I like the idea of a "stained glass" feel, but I think there are too many sections of the different tones. If there were fewer or made more general, it might have a better look. Other than that, I love the concept.

striker138 wrote:Woot frowns upon using straight live traces. I am sure if you used a trace, and cleaned it up, and recolored it, or whatever, it would be completely passable. I see shirts all the time that look like they use traces in one form or another, but they are typically reworked to the point they don't look it.



I have to join this discussion; here is my oppinion
Reference means "I looked at it to make sure it looks right." While many artists create things straight from their mind or memory, many artists will usually use many of these. It is called a reference because you "refer" to it.

Copying an image, whether freehand or, worse, through live trace, isn't really art in any viable sense. Art involves creation. Xerox machines aren't artists. But then, neither are forgers. It's great if you can replicate the Mona Lisa. Good for you, skillboy powerhead. But you're not DaVinci. That's why museums don't regularly have high profile forgery galleries.

To put reference in a clearer contrast: I can't write a book on the civil war by picking and choosing parts of Shelby Foote's trilogy, quoting them, and linking them with conjunctions and short phrases, even if I cite every quote. I need to add my own commentary, make connections between sources, and create a new book. I "refer" to the earlier ones to enforce my individual argument. I do not simply handwrite someone else's words in a different script.

I hope that clears everything up

Not quoting as it's above me aplenty...

Alright, I get that. Don't trace work and call it your own. I teach graphic design and Illustrator. I recognize that a trace is not real original art. Not everyone is as good with the Pen Tool and work from scratch. Sometimes that needed shape is beyond abilities. It is for me and I've been working with Illustrator for over 20 years.

All that being said, I encourage my students to make all work theirs even if a trace was part of that. There's a difference between a quick livetrace, and a trace that's been scaled, altered, cleaned up, simplified, recolored, and integrated into new original work. That's the trick. And here it's a large-scale trick. I find it hard to believe that every stroke of every pen tool here was born by dint of hard handwork.

All of this posted work is great stuff, but all of it isn't 100% original. My $.02.

Love the pose and the colors, only thing I'm not fond of is the face. Maybe it's just the placing or posture but it doesn't seem 'right' to me.

Blinddog...I think you have to wait 6 months before you get back the rights to any artwork submitted here.(If I am wrong, maybe someone can clarify this further?)
(Not sure what the policy is if it's rejected though.)

Thankz Dude!

Yeah I was a little salty after seeing that they rejected your design. Yes it was a parody but it was not like the original.

I really liked that movie went back and added to my NETFLIX que. I was trying to make a cool little theme you know wolves are wild so a wolf-man biker would be wildererrrr!!!(is that a word?).

The revolver is a picture of a Webley & Scott Mk VI. It was adapted from a shot taken from the Wikimedia Commons repository. As far as I can tell a remix and reuse is allowed. I have no trouble owning up to this one.

Actually it is 60 days so 2 months. But I believe that may only apply to the selected entries and not those that did not win.

LOVE. THIS. SHIRT! It's the only one I voted for in this derby. For those who don't think it is on theme - Look at the rest of the field....I'd say 50% of the shirts fall short of the meeting your criteria, but this one is spot on.

It is 60 days, but this was rejected, meaning they will NOT print it. It only applies to entries that make it to the end of the derby. They give you 24 hrs. to change your mind. If they print this after rejecting it, I'll call my attorney & see what options I have, but this Tshirt needs to be made & worn. It's just 2kool4skool.
