Re: Sign Above the Dotted Line



this will get rejected, you need to get rid of the lines on the bottom and the text.

I looked into trying to automate it via a process like that, but then I wouldn't be able to get the rounded transitional "bumps", and it did seem like it would be cheating. I did this all with vector lines of varying widths, manual editing of segments, and liberal use of expand and divide.

Good job. With the difference in colors you can see the beauty of the design. Thanks.

orabbit wrote:Thanks so much for your comment, mothlab. Yes, it's a luna alright. Can you make fabric from luna cocoons? I never quite put it together that silkworms are moths. I'll have to dwell on that next time I wear silk boxers.


Luna is in a group called "Saturniids" - related to Polyphemus, Cecropia, Prometheus (common names) moths native to the U.S. Their silk cocoons aren't very high quality (probably bec fibers are uneven, break easily, etc.) so I doubt anyone uses it for textiles, also because it would be hard to rear enough larvae to be practical. OTOH Antheraea pernyi and A. mylitta are close relatives that are semi-domesticated and cultivated en masse in China (Ap) and India (Am) for silk. They're the source of what looks a little like muslin fabric - the natural fiber is light brown and uneven so it's not shiny, but still has a nice "feel" or "hand." I believe it's often used in wool and cotton blends. Your boxers are probably made from silk of Bombyx mori, the only fully domesticated silk-producing species (can't survive on its own) which is the one used for most silk textiles. It's a moth but adults can't fly because bodies have become too big for their wings (or wings too small?) during domestication - a result of artificial selection, probably for bigger bodies and higher silk yield, also easier management in breeding, etc. Sorry to be so long-winded; probably more than you wanted to know.

Your suggestion is greatly appreciated To be honest, I was struggling with which colours to go with, so I will definitely give this a try!

Thanks! I got to the Derby late (I just found out it existed, in fact) so I had to go from start to finish yesterday.

Thanks. I also do not care for the O. I figured I'd throw it in and see what happened. I'm going to do another design in a little while with the same flames but, the O will be replaced with an eyeball.. after I install an icemaker.

Re: The Mouse Ran Up the Clock



Maybe a dark brown on creme? Are your lines crossing on the text? That would cause rejection, but it's hard to tell from the comp.

Wow! Thanks for all the info. Looks like the Bombyx larvae are used as a food too? Mmmmm, "ground cucumbers"!

Fabulous design, but hate that light blue shirt color. How about putting it on silver or cranberry with blue lines or navy with lines?

Re: Steampunk Fantasy



One more, just because I really enjoy this derby. Someone wondered if my previous design was done (somehow) with halftones. I decided to do one a little more complicated, and to try and get a little bit of a 3D effect...

Alternate color scheme.

Yeah, it was 4 AM this morning when I finally finished this one. I wasn't really on top of my game when it came time to pick colors. Thanks for the suggestions!

I love the flair to the lines and how you drew the eyes. This is definitely one of the better designs this week, it needs more votes!

oh nooo that's quite a typo! I meant you ARE a workhorse as a compliment, not that you EAT work horses. sighs
