Re: I'm Killin' It!



Here's a quick, little idea I had. It may be a little morbid, but there's got to be at least a little joy in a successful hunt. Enjoy!

Uh, sorry to tell you, but neck stretching is a Southeast Asian tradition, not African. It comes from the Karen ethnic group.

Which should give you a clue as to the OP's mistake, as there are no tigers in Africa.

Sorry.



Ohhkay, so I should read the whole thread before I inadvertently repeat what someone else already said. Sorry.

Man, I've only voted for and bought one shirt since I joined over a year ago, and now this derby suddenly has two shirts I would buy, "The Hunt" and this one. This would actually be religious for me, relating to the Lion of the tribe of Judah. Plus, I'm a leo, so double win. Stunning, GMV.

I don't think they realize that they are dinner. They are just having a fun time dancing.

Nope.

It was named the "Dark Continent" by 19th Century Europeans because most of the map, itself, was "dark" (unexplored).

Great design! We have missionaries who go to Africa and I think they would love this shirt! Ido!

SJulian1 wrote:I'm going to have to side with those who are saying they aren't the same design. Ramyb tends to reuse general ideas over and over and over again. So yes, both designs are spherical and located on the chest of the shirt. But that doesn't mean that he just rehashed the Aztec design and slapped on a new name. Ramyb just uses the same few formats because he isn't really that creative.

There are plenty of legitimate faults to many of his designs, people can't go out of their way to make up something to complain about. Because when that happens, then all the blind Ramyb supporters can point at all the complaints, even valid ones, and say that we're just trying to bash on Ramyb.



Your points are valid. I was thinking the same thing about this terrible artist that used the same tired technique throughout different points in his life. He clearly just took every painting, copied it, and then just changed a couple things about it 'til at some point he'd actually have a creative idea and switch it up a bit. I remember something about a blue period and cubism, but the guy's name escapes me. Pretty sure no one liked his art.

Do note, though, that personal taste dictates whether or not someone wants a subtle or intricately designed shirt with high color complement vs. a shirt that says "I LOOOOOOOVE PONIES" in bold, white, two-inch letters just so someone can read it. Your legitimate faults need to be objective for anyone to take you seriously.

Nice shirt. Keep up the good work.

Re: Impressing the Ladies



Thanks to all for the lovely comments. I learned a LOT on this one. First, that I draw cars better than people. Though the hubby disagreed when I told him it was a '66 Impala. Well, the reference photo was; maybe my drawing didn't do it justice.
Second, that my draw-and-scan then cleanup and color process wasn't working. This time I drew, re-drew the lines I wanted, scanned, then redrew in PS on a transparent layer over the scan. Lots of work, but I'm SO much happier with my lines.
Who knows? If I ever get time to learn to use a tablet, I might hit those triple-digits in votes!

Whoosh! Super lion.

Sometimes eliminating a part on a character silhouette helps. After all, I think it's safe to say that we can still assume the lion has four limbs.



Maybe the lion's belly just hides the leg?

I like this, but there is a rule for this derby that specifies "Animals you would see on an African safari only".

This is how a real man goes on safari. I would proudly wear this shirt, Sir!

I wrote up a post replying to missmelis and blanked. I think, perhaps, that it was too long. Is there character limit, maybe?

Edit: Or maybe it was because I hit "add comment" as opposed to "reply," since I was replying to the two of them. Is there a safeguard to prevent someone from posting too often on a shirt design?

You're quick, btw.
