Looking at the replies, I would have to agree about the feet and the too-small thumb. But dangit if I wouldn't buy this shirt!

Just don't give me all these excuse. The only excuse that could have persuaded me was that you didn't know how to convert your colors to pantone, and even then I would have trouble believing you since you have been doing this for so long.



Since you didn't address anything I actually said, I'll just bring a couple of things to your attention.

ramyb wrote:...you should reach out a little more and try to "educate" some of the other artists out there who aren't using them as well...

Next week I can give pantones a shot again and see how it goes....



I think this is a fair compromise- If your intentions are to create an even playing field and help out the consumer, prove it. There are plenty of other entries to go after (in fact, sometimes you praise entries that don't use pantones rather than make a mention of the issue)- I can do my part and try using them for a few weeks and see how it goes, but if this is an actually important issue to you and not just targeting me, there is a lot that you can be doing. The fog is completely dominated by entries that are not pantone color selected (and I'm not just talking about mine and you know it)- and while it is fine to give the benefit of the doubt to new wooters, they are the ones that you should be especially targeting since they might not know better and it is a perfect opportunity to make a difference.

I'll be honest, I didn't read most of it because I felt we already both made are cases and were about to go in circles.

Also, Which ones should I educate? Are they regular artist? Honestly, I spotted yours cause I love many of the bright colors you use ( I love working with a bright palette) and I know I can't use them here. I don't have the whole pantone SC palette memorized....

Sorry, to have played the Captain Obvious.



It (The capture/rejection by the Wootenshmirtzes) took a bit longer than I expected, but clearly they don't watch the show- Perry would never act the hipster. Perry is a dead on Mike Hammer; if ever there were a serious agent, it's Perry. I mainly liked the idea of him blowing on his coffee using the tooth-chattering that he does, so I feel like the design worked.

Spirit, you always bring your A-game. I am so impressed by the detail in this. Not to mention it hits the theme right on without using an obvious gimmick (the apple could be part of a parody, or just a really cool worm house). Absolutely lovely.

I usually like the way you render stuff and your color choices are generally great but I often get disappointed by the line work... look at his feet for instance. It's an easy fix and I'd probably vote for this if you re-subbed it but as is it's really jarring (and the tiny nub thumb holding the cup doesn't work great either.)

Plus if you take out the sunglasses and just leave the frames that will silence the issue of hipster enough or not.

I draw a lot of mock carebears so this definitely speaks to me, I just wish you'd pushed the apathy a bit more.



I second the comment about the feet and glasses. I was considering voting for this, then I saw the foot, then it struck me how much this reminds me of old Mad magazine cartoons with a blind guy selling pencils. He needs glasses, not shades.

Close, but no cigar Ramyb. *golf clap*

Great expressions and a drawing style that suits your idea so well coffey bean. Cool colour scheme on the cranberry shirt too. Over-dependence on scarves as an accessory for a sub-culture with scarf preoccupation is not something you should excuse yourself for. +1

I'm not a big fan of the feet either, but to be fair, that thumb is right on. All you have to do is a google image search for care bear and you can see that they are almost always drawn with tiny nub thumbs.

Re: Indie Turtle



To be clear, we do not require artists to use the Pantone matching system. We prefer artists to use it if possible, because it does make communicating the colors easier. While your RGB monitor can display millions of colors, the Pantone system only has 1,341 colors to choose from. Limiting these color options means it is more likely that the final print looks like the original entry.

Do not get hung up on how Pantone colors display on screen, because they will vary from monitor to monitor. The PMS colors Photoshop picks out are not completely accurate either. The only option for true PMS matching is to buy a physical Pantone book and use it for one year (it's pricey and must be replaced annually).

If you want the colors of your final printed shirt to closely match the orignal entry, and you want to save a tiny bit of the art directors' sanity, Pantone colors are preferred.

I agree plagiarism is bad but it's not something you should blacklist a person forever for. All the question is asking is whether you would buy the shirt or not and not whether you believe that the designer is a morally just individual. Also unless you only buy from organic and fair trade stores I'm sure you've bought things from people who have done far worse than plagiarizing.

Maybe it's the fault of the movie for not really explaining that or for making it more about them being in a band or getting on with the plot. I don't know.

Where was I going with this. Oh, I really like Scott Pilgrim.



I think the fact that Scott shares a mattress with his pony roommate, thinks garlic bread is a full dinner and when they splurge they splurge on Pizza Pizza indicates their meager income level...lol.

Oh, I just noticed you are also the one who designed the haunted house. Wow. No wonder I like this piece a lot. I'm a fan of the artworks with so much details. And this one is the only one I'm looking forward to buy this week. Hope you win.

BTW I made a Woot account just to buy the haunted house t-shirt. I came across this site by accident when they sold it on the first day, and I was like mannn I need to own that shirt. Although I don't wear gray shirts at all, but the design is too good to pass up.

Fourth, if the carrot/text is supposed to be on the shirt, that looks like it puts you over woot's six color maximum, not to mention it looks like you're using some gradients. Fifth, your comp doesn't match your thumbnail. Your thumbnail makes it appear as if your shirt background is white, as well as the carrot that doesn't appear anywhere on the front of the shirt.



Yeah, i see they didn't list all of those, I suppose the rejector has more to do then sit and write long lists of how they screwed up XD
