Re: Blue Bird v2



I lowered the design a little on the template and went with dark blue on light blue, what do you think? Is there another color combination anyone would rather see? This is all one big learning experience.

Re: It's a Tree!

I like how you rendered the differences in texture on the bark and leaves. Nice technique!

Re: Can I Keep It?



This is one of my all time favorite designs. Now that doesn't hold much water because my favorite is a Boots design that didn't win. But anyhow, excellent.

Re: Midnight Masquerade Blue


The melding of what looks like a luna moth and an owl with the moon is a nice use of hidden language and image. As a silkworm geneticist I use the handle mothlab" and like your design in part because Luna is a wild silkmoth. I have no fear of moths but some people in my field do, so you're not alone. Am writing mainly to encourage you and hope the judges recognize the strength of your design even if the masses don't.

My speech is slurred because I love beer... and the design is 19" tall, well within their requirements.

mrwednesday wrote:By crossing over I meant trace back. I didn't mean to imply that there were lines that X'ed across one another. I also realize that there are other designs that skirt the no tracing back over a line, but this one is by far the most egregious. There's at least four or five of the sharp points that absolutely could not be created by except by tracing back over the line (and no varying the line width, yet having them still touch giving the impression of tracing back over is not different than tracing back over).

I realize that there is a threshold level that many of the designs are pushing to not have rounded points, but I think this clearly crosses it. Putting in calligraphic elements to create points is one thing but the lines should separate at around a 45 degree angle. There are many here well below a 20 degree angle and some at less than 5 degrees.

Edit:

I'll also add that if you look around the derby so far none of the other designs have sharp elements like this one. The points on Patrick's web come close and I think are pushing it and some of the mane elements in truffle's unicorn, but I think this one is so different precisely because it pushed well past a reasonable level independently reached by at least a dozen people so far and where I think the limit reasonably should be.


It will be interesting to see what the rejectionator thinks is retracing. But this is by no means worse than the spiderweb, not really sure how you can make that argument. If they dq this one, they will have to get rid of the spider web, the unicorn, the dragon (tips of its wings) the seahorse (inside its snout) and octavious, just to name the leaderboard. I am not sure woot is ready to pull that trigger since most, like this, are done so well.

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.

I concur and the colors are really nice. The upper figure looks very much like a canid to me, though. Throws it off a little bit, but otherwise really fantastic.

Re: Extinction V.2



Your designs are always amazing walmazan. I have one question for you if you have time to respond: How do you make all your corners pointed?

In AI, I noticed that the pointed corner of an angle made with the pen tool goes flat as soon as the angle gets to acute. How did you make all your angles pointed? If you used AI, did you simply not make your angles too acute? Thanks!

Don't go swimming.
My mind is a strange place.
