Re: Happy Mexican Food! (V.3 on cran)

Ok, I *think* this is my last version... I made some more changes to the design, and then also decided maybe it looked better with the changes on cranberry. Thanks for looking!

"Good time??" Was that all it was to you!? A "GOOD TIME!?" It meant the world to me, and all you can say is you had a "good time!" I'll never be as good as Walmazan, will I!? You were thinking about him the whole time, weren't you! ;)

AZ, NM, TX, etc. were all part of Mexican territory at some point also. Are designs referencing these areas/cultures all also fair game for this week's derby?




I don't see why not, unless you want Woot to start enforcing that everything posted must be factual within the context of the present day. Sweeping rejections for anything that show Mexico as it was in the past than it is today. I'd like to see everything to do with the wars, and everything historical rejected. ¬_¬

So I made a shirt about it. ^_^



This is a really great design. I hope you resubmit on a different shirt color!

Re: Happy Mexican Food!



Is this not precisely what the derby prompt said not to do?

ramyb wrote:I can understand woot's decision to reject for text, but stating that El Zorro has nothing to do with Mexico is completely false. Not only was the fictional character of Zorro a hero of the Mexican people, but the real "El Zorro" was an actual hero in the Mexican War for independence. I wanted to resubmit this because I feel that it deserves a chance to compete, but ultimately it is up to woot to decide.



He's not Mexican. He'll never be Mexican. He was even created by an American named Johnston McCully (who isn't Mexican either!). Even the guy who played him on TV (Guy Williams)wasn't Mexican! Focus on the rules for once! Gah!

It makes me happy and creeps me out at the same time. That's a good thing.

Your colouring skills continue to absolutely astound me. I may have to get into some illegal fighting rings myself, in order to make some cash & hire you to colour some of my indie comic book projects!

This seems just inconsistent and silly, and frustrates me for reasons which have nothing to do with the artist and everything to do with woot's rubbish, inconsistent, opaque and seemingly randomly applied rejection policy.



I think that woot's decision to reject the original is fine based on the fact that the background symbol resembled text. I wasn't sure if I was crossing a line with the original, and it seems I was; however, I wanted to dispute the second part of the rejection notice, and that's why I resubmitted with a correction to the background. I took the time to defend my design, and hope that woot will read it and consider the inspiration for the design. Like I said before, it is obviously woot's decision in the end, but I didn't want to just let it go. The theme is not famous mexicans, the theme is Mexico. And for the record, the derby theme states Spanish colonialism as fair game. The entire Zorro story is based in Spanish colonialism and represents the struggle of the Mexicans against the Spanish with Zorro as their hero.

This is an awesome shirt design! I'm still waiting on your red zebra one coming in the mail...hopefully it'll be here soon. And naturally, I did get Kevlar's In the Library with the Wrench shirt. Two fantastic artists!

Re: Ancient Astronaut



As a big fan of Mayan culture and their extensive knowledge about the cosmos i wanted to do an illustration based on the Mayan King Pakal and his famous carved stone sarcophagus lid , which according to many people its a proof of ancient astronauts or aliens visiting our planet since many years ago , check the similarities with a real spaceship … In the center of the frame theres a man sitting like an astronaut on a complex chair with some kind of ungravity in his hair , he has a mask on his nose probably to breath , he uses his two hands to manipulate some controls and the heel of his left foot is on some sort of pedal with different controls or positions , the rear portion is separated from him where the engine is and outside at the bottom of the whole frame you can see a flames like in the spaceships propulsion systems , also you can see some kind of wings on both sides o the frame , i think theres about 18 or 20 similarities with modern spaceships.

Here the real stone lid

6 color on black , here a larger view and hope you like it , thanks.

I have literally never heard otherwise in my entire life. Seriously.

As I've understood it and as a quick Google search appears to support, the character Zorro was an upper class Mexican dude (with some connection to Spain) who fought his area's oppressive government.

And also, though you're dismissing the Alta California argument, that seems really shortsighted. If at the time the design depicts, that area was considered part of Mexico... then how would the design itself be off topic? The areas clearly shared major cultural influences and even a government.

I'm no fan of the design (cutesy animals just aren't my thing), but it seems plenty on topic.

Don't worry, ramyb. I don't necessarily like or dislike you, but from what I can see...people on here are just jealous that you have a lot of support. Haters gonna hate, and all that.
