Re: The same thing we do every night



Love the concept and design, except for a minor quibble. The rust stains are going to just look like stains. Kudos for being realistic, but your success means the shirt will look perpetually dirty.

I think it's an "I've got a black hole where my heart should be" sort of thing.

Incredibly well done with the halftoning

Re: Dimentional Leak



I do look forward to seeing where you take this, it definitely is a top notch design and I'm really pining for it. So if you ever get it up somewhere, let us know!

Much love for the bloby rainbow dimension escapees.

Lol! You have no idea... My Dog is the inspiration for this... But ur right forward momentum would in fact lend his ears to be tucked back especially bursting through boards... Appreciate the vote and the feedback...

Not sure about "Tromp-L'oeil," but that is pretty darn hilarious! I would buy one for every "Schnookums" owner I know!

I mean, I own lots of RamyB shirts, so I like the guys art, but if it's not on-topic, then it should be rejected like everyone else's that's off-topic. It's not even being mean, it's simply the rules of the Derby.



You're kidding me, right? This is fogging? The above comment and the others pointing out the flaws in this shirt are dead on, and yet it is STILL fogging. This is proof to me that the artists worth anything need to just leave woot and go elsewhere because this site is just not worth it.

Yes it does. The fact the Rejectionator hasn't shown up for 4 days, and most people aren't on topic, doesn't mean the topic isn't here or shouldn't apply. It's like saying beating someone with a stick is ok, because you only hit them in the stomache, and other people were using tire irons.

mrwednesday wrote:I agree that the flames detract from the perspective you gained with the sword. My other issue is that though it's a cool looking design, I don't see any parody here that would make this fair use.



I'm not up on how much of the imagery from the game is trademarked, but I think the elements that are visible in the image may not be sufficient grounds for a challenge. It looks as much like an 80s metal album cover as a piece of Zelda art.

I'm assuming this is talking about the comments about the non Trompe-l'œil nature of the flames. You can't see it but I'm giving you the stink-eye. That's the single most trollish thing I've read today.

Re: Realistic Line



This is wonderful... yet very close to not passing because it does not appear "3D" - However the simplicity is perfect and although it is not something I would personally wear I appreciate the concept, the cuteness and the execution... For that reason alone it has my vote... Nice Job!

On the flipside, when I accidentally get chocolate on it, people will think it's just more drawn in rust stains that are supposed to be there ;)

I like it

Re: inked



This is brilliant. Voted.

On a purely technical note, any shirt design that puts important elements that close to the bottom will only show properly if the shirt is worn untucked. You might consider moving anything crucial up to the halfway point on the shirt. There will still be people whose huge... tracts of land will obscure the design, but you'll get the patronage of people who wear tees tucked in, which is an awful lot of us.

I'm afraid your assumption was mistaken. I was referring to the comment about fair use. The flame is clearly graphic and not realistic, that much is obvious. The matter of it being fair use on the other hand is open for debate. A use of ones imagination to see potential parodies or mashups is essential as you demonstrated by comparing it to an 80's metal album cover. I did not mean to be "trollish," only slightly humorous. Humor is a subjective thing it seems, so I will apologize for my attempt.

Good Day to you sir.

Re: Bad Temper

Hmmm... I really like the dragon's expression: it looks just like Diva Dog when she doesn't get her way. However, I agree with previous comments that this doesn't demonstrate trompe-l'oeil style. So I hope this prints somewhere, at some point, but I can't vote for it in this Derby. (Ramy, it is super-cute in all the right ways.)
