There is not a single photo used in this design - not even as a model.



I don't understand that at all. Where are they getting that from? You had a legitimate shot at winning. Bummer...

I think it means that some of us would rather have a cool plagiarized shirt than the usual sappy stuff.

No tinfoil hats here. You don't need a weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing.

I don't see anyone defending "blatant plagiarism". I see a pile on for no real reason.

The overlay way up there above doesn't prove anything at that resolution. Even at that there are obvious differences - and when you add in the rest of the design, I wonder if some people don't have better things to do with their time than try to nitpick the nerdy kids.

There are other designs higher up in this derby with coloring book images blatantly copied into them, yet we have guys here blowing up images 20X and trying to make pixel-width comparisons.

Madness.

I'd be really interested to know who this "cool crowd" that is, and also specifically which designs make use of these blatantly copied coloring book images. I'm not trying to be cutlassy. I'd genuinely like to know. The vagueness isn't really winning any arguments.

Thanks. Young Frank is one of my all time favs. I had to pay tribute to it..(of course without making "Igor" look like the actor in the movie) It was either this or another great scene from the movie which I will have to save for a later date. The Idea is is still cooking in my head.

Me too, but don't tell anyone. I don't want people to think I care. That would be totally uncool. Unlike unicorns (which I hear are totally in this season).

The background doesn't read Mars to me, too pinkish maybe, and since I'm not too familier with the Curiosity I thought it was Johnny 5 or Wall-E at first. Something that makes the design seem off to me is that the Curiosity has a hand-drawn, unsymetrical style. Since it's a machine I think it would be better if the lines and angles were more straight and symetrical like a real machine is. That's my two cents, hope you find it helpful. Keep on truckin'!



I had a similar reaction to this design. The idea itself is good, I just personally prefer when the design is a bit more polished, for lack of better phrasing. One aspect that stuck out to me is that the white part of the background reminded me of the effect the spray can in MS Paint has. That's cool for doodles/sketches, but not necessarily something I'm going to pay for. Again, the idea itself is not bad and I think the big thing is to just keep working, keep practicing. Talk to artists, watch tutorials.

Well, hell.

If you're going to reject entries I want to buy for minor use of other images, why not do it for blatant ones?

Re: Laboratory Assistant



Ok folks... I'm looking for feed back. I've been steadily sending in submissions for this contest for a few weeks now. I still can't seem to break a bad pattern for lack of votes. I seem to waiver in and out of the hot list but, that seems to be it. Send me your feedback, good, bad or indifferent, please...

Re: Laboratory Assistant



What you've got here is what we call a Cult Hit. The people who like it love it, and the rest just blink and move on. You can tell by the high vote to comment ratio.

You did a great job cartooning Eyegor there. This is the most professional thing I've seen you do to date. Keep this level up, and pair it with an idea that is more universal, and you're gold. I don't think 76 votes is anything to sneeze at though.

I would like to address the Cute Clique conspiracy. It's hard to get printed. You have to have the rare combination of artistic talent and clever and universally appealing ideas. The people who have figured out how to do that keep doing it again and again, and learn from each other's successes along the way. It's easy to see patterns when you're looking for them. It's called confirmation bias.

Sure, there's a tendency for the usual suspects to socialize together, but that's just because artists are all secretly insecure and reclusive, and keep to their own kind.

Every post you've put up has been so great. Well thought out and put. Thank you. Just, thank you.
