I get so worked up about this because in college I made a watercolor painting of an avocado, I got the color exactly right. A panel of instructors at my semester review said the green looked like barf, too!!! I was like "that's what a freaking avocado looks like! They are brownish green, what the crap?"

I think Shrek is supposed to be green and if people think that barf is green... well you'll just have to show them otherwise!




Yeah... unfortunately I sort of agree with them.
I think a problem with a lot of my designs is this: that this is a pretty good drawing, and pretty accurate blend/representation of WoW and Shrek. However, people don't want a big ugly ogre on their chest. And I don't know that grass colored shirts are all that popular.

Shirt design is really a balance between making something funny/novel and making something attractive. People don't generally want ugly things on them- even if it is well done.

But thanks for the kind words, anyway.
And I'm sorry about your bad experience with avocados. People can be so cruel when it comes to vegetables.

bile is green like that, though, and sometimes, when you're really, really sick and you've barfed up everything else, you'll see that bile liquid nastiness. just sayin'

LOL unfortunately the GIMP secret for halftones IS the newsprint filter, but if you do it a certain way they will look fine. My entry "the redwood estate" was made with GIMP and used that filter for the background. I know it didn't win, but the halftones didn't look horrible.

Maybe I'll post how to do it on the forums?

I use combinations either texture files or texture brushes. Thanks!

turtlegir1 wrote:I totally agree! This would be a really cool coffee mug!

Second, it's interesting you have 2 shirts that are like a story, the reverse of each other. Interesting....This one is the better of the 2, though.





I agree! Would love to see it on a mug! T-shirt is my first choice tho

Thanks to everyone who voted and commented!

I like larger prints myself and think print size is personal preference, I usually try to display them larger on the mock-up so they show up better.

I probably wouldn't wear it, but the colors work GREAT together and with the shirt, very nice pairing, and your linework is nice too. Great job on that octopus head.



Thank you! I think it turned out really well myself. I'm not surprised it didn't go further in the Derby as it's a lot more bold and non-gradienty than the best performing stuff, but I'm proud of the design. I will almost certainly use it elsewhere.

Lol! Sorry! I only meant that the lines might appear fuzzy on fabric, or at least look odd controured over the Twins. I get the woodblock look. But I think I like this better.

Hey Rad, just got your Rock, Paper, Scissors shirt today. I love it! Love the detail on your shirt this week too--I like Shrek, but didn't know it was a WoW reference (don't really know anything about World of Warcraft, actually. However, I've heard ignorance about Wow gives me a +124 cool factor).

(by the way, I've had long shifts at work lately and wasn't able to see how things unfolded with the rejected design before it disappeared, so if some one has a link to the comments thread that had this I'd appreciate a link in a PM)



There is no link to the specific comments thread for the rejected/removed design that ramyb submitted, but the individual comments are in the derby comment thread (along with all of the comments on all of the other submitted designs).

Imposter Pete was Unprepared for the Almost Human Nightmare Cuckoo Clock. The Walrus and Eggmen were the Height of Envy at the Monkey Bar. See the DJ spinning records on a Flora Phonograph while simultaneously playing Rock, Paper, Scissorhold.
