So you're saying that a plot device negates it's story? Inception = 2 and 1/2 hours of blank screen?

Please see below:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_fairy_tales



I do know from other "rejects" that woot! is taking a VERY hard line on this derby: faerie tales, not fables (as in Aesop's Tortoise and the Hare), not legends (like Bigfoot and Robin Hood), not novels. They're sticking straight to faerie tales that have been collected from local culture, don't have an overtly stated morals, probably were put in a compendium by some insufferable academics turned heroes (I'm looking at you, Grimms!), and definitely not tales made up in the last couple centuries. They want tales with *history*, thank you!
At least, that's what I can figure (and, I'll admit, part of me agrees with that hard line). Sorry you got rejected. I'm sure the time'll come when you can use this. It's a really nice effect, the purple so close to black that it looks like the Cheshire Cat is disappearing into the shirt. I also lime the eyes, they're pretty darn captivating. Good luck next time!

Ramble over.

Ignorance ≠ fact

You do realize the Wizard of OZ movie is based on the Wonderful Wizard of Oz story, right? Obviously not. Let me enlighten you... Dorothy's time in Oz did in fact happen in the story. Dorothy even goes back to visit Oz in subsequent Oz books.

I realize watching movies is faster than reading books but I highly recommend it... especially before commenting on what happens in the story.

I like your colors. Two things tho - you need ot fix your thumbnail (detail) image - it's not displaying on the screen. And, without a larger image to see, I'm going to take a guess that you have gradients making up that glow and the moon. Woot's rejectionator will get you for that. Check the submission guidelines. You'll need to convert them to halftones.

I appreciate the idea, sortof. At least the modern take on the tale. But I'm not down with Goldi offing endangered species. Just a shade on the blatantly bloody side for me.

The design, specifically the color choices, seems off. Any helpful critiques would be appreciated.



Sadly, I can't access your larger file from here (damned site filters!). But as to the color choices - it all looks OK except for the Sea Hare itself. I'm not familiar with the critters (apparently they're mollusks), but if you want to represent it as an actual hare, maybe a blue-grey would convey both hare and sea, and pop better against the shirt. Then if you still have colors left, use a bit of blue or blue-green to set off the waves... Just a suggestion.

Thanks! Those messy lines will be the death of me... as I will tell myself each week, "make nice lines, all the good artists out there are making nice lines.... how hard could it be... just make them nice and neat.... "

Well, it turns out it's pretty damned hard.

I appreciate all the comments on this one.

I agree- Girls who kick-butt are awesome, I'm more likely to buy then versus a girl who's focus is on her legs.

uncleregis wrote:So the main reason this was rejected is because Star Wars isn't a myth? Did I understand that correctly?



The reason why this was rejected is this (if I understood right):
They wanted a derby based on the traditional fairy tales (as in short narrative) with the traditional role schemes.

Though some sources may call "The Whizard of Oz" a fairy tale (different countries seem to be of different opinions as to if it is or not a fairy tale), it is novel length and not the same style as typical fairy tales of old.

"The Toy Peddler" is a fairy tale told to me by my grandmother from Yugoslavia (now Macedonia). Without getting too wordy, it begins when a young boy is sent by his mother to go to town to fetch some bread and cheese. On his way, he comes across a mysterious old man with a sack full of toys. The peddler offers him something from his sack of toys, the boy's greed gives in, and uses the food money for his own wants. Of course, it is a trap and is taken by the man. Skip a few pages, and the boy must escape the clutches of the Toy Peddler much like Hansel and Gretel, Vasisilla from Baba Yaga, etc.

Thank you, Hiortdahl, I didn't know that story went as far back as the Middle Ages, or the connection of Santa Claus! Of course, after thinking about it I can see the relationship of the magical men with a sack full of toys!

jerkbait83 wrote:I never heard of Baba Yaga but it reminds me of my daughters play for Bony Legs. Awesome shirt!



Yes, sometimes Baba Yaga is known as "Boney Legs" because no matter how much she eats, she stays boney and skeleton-like. Sometimes Russian fairy tales depict her as a good witch, but I prefer those where she's scary. She lives in a hut which roams the forest on chicken legs, searching for naughty children to eat. When the hut perches, a fence of bones rises from the ground and encircles it. She also travels perched in a large mortar with her knees almost touching her chin, and pushes herself across the forest floor with a pestle... and she can fly in this manner, too!

hyuk, that's no any way to change their minds, that will only enflame them! :P

The points I would make are.

1. It's not a pentagram, it's not upside down, it's not even a complete star.

2. Pentagrams don't always mean Satan anyway, the symbol is well represented in other things throughout fiction and history.

3. Even when a pentagram IS a pentagram meant to invoke evil it's often slightly badass tongue in cheek, ala a metal tee shirt or horror movie cover.

Nobody is going to think you are a satanist by wearing this shirt, not normal people anyway. Lighten up.

What does it mean that it's 'in the fog'? (I realize that I can't see the vote count, but why do they do that?)
