Good color choices, the design fits the shirt well, and the theme is well presented.

Nice work!

Re: Not the Sharpest Boomerang



I'm going to go out on a limb here, and suggest that "ninjas" (considering how overused their common depiction is) are part of pop-culture, and therefor objectively should not be allowed in this derby.

On the other hand... subjectively, I'm just sick of seeing them.

I'm pretty sure this is a "Crocodile Dundee" reference, which falls under pop-culture.

But let's sit back and see if the rejection fairy pays you a visit...

I like the design a lot, but it looks a little weird/excessive to me the green shirt. I feel like there needs to be more contrast between the turtle and the landscape.

Re: Down Under Mutation



You know, I have one simple request. And that is to have kangaroos with frickin' shark fins attached to their backs! Now evidently my cycloptic colleague informs me that that can't be done. Can you remind me what I pay you people for? Honestly, throw me a bone here.

Ok,

Australia does NOT look like a mutant-conjoined-Lhino-baby. You simply squished familiar lion & rhino features into the Australian landmass.

If I were an alien, I'd be offended.
If I were an Australian, I'd be livid, mate.

A fairy penguin basking in the warmth of an Australian beach enjoying the fact he's not in the south pole like his larger cousins resting his feet on a snow globe of the south pole, with the Sydney Opera House in the background. I hope you like...I realize some people are gettin sick of penguins, I just couldnt resist

@ambergreen:
Cool! I haven't seen it. Is it any good?

@microburst54:
Glad you like it! Most of the time you can imply movement by tilting things sideways. Your brain does the rest!

I like the aborigine feel to this.



Thanks! That's the feel that I was aiming for.

I did the dots all by hand - I can think of a couple of ways to do it easier but I think that would have spoiled the look.

My eyes wanted to fall out of my head by the time I was done though >.<

EEEEEEEE!

I have 5 of these guys (mom and dad and 3 joeys!). I really want this to win now even though I'm submitting a design later. There's room at the top!

Do you have them as pets, too? They're like no other pet I've ever had. Like mini psycho jungle cats!

I do not understand the appeal of this shirt AT ALL. It's not creative. It has no joke, no story, no silliness, no anything but "cute."

Re: Blue Ring Love



A blue-ringed octopus shirt!? My pre-Derby prayers have been answered. Good stuff, indeed. Just have a few suggestions:

1) Might just be me, but the head seems just a little bit off on the top portion of the octopus (that is, the part that is coming from the left side to the back).

2) Those jellyfish look rather phallic, to the point of being pretty noticeable. Once you see it (look at the "head" of the jellyfish, you won't be able to unsee it.

That being said, once again, very good job, particularly as your first shot at this kind of thing. I am also particularly pleased that you tied in the "Australia" bit of the theme, rather than just an octopus itself. I highly look forward to seeing any future work you submit to future Derbies.

Sometimes, that's all that some folks want ...

Back to the shirt ... fake pockets are not my thing, so no vote from me. Still, thank you for NOT doing another turbunguin.

Yeah, I'd have to agree. It's nearly as overt as the other "knife" shirt that was rejected earlier, but it's still relying on the same source. I'd be surprised to not see this one rejected.

Probably. I looked up a bunch of references but I will admit, this is the first time I've ever drawn an octopus anyway. It's hard to figure out positioning/perspective on the little buggers. D:

OH GOD. *deletedeletedeletedelete-- no jk, no delete* I'll have to keep that in mind for the next time I draw jellies (another subject I am unfamiliar with) but my intention was definitely NOT to make them look...weiny-y.
