Thank you! I treated it like an investigation gone very wrong. Glad you enjoy the work!

(check box) Yes, this design makes use of clip art, photos, traced photos or hand-drawn renditions of existing images



Question: I'm new here and not a great artist. I recall a product design class I had in college where we were supposed to draw our car - during class, quickly, with no reference image. Homework was to go home and draw the car while sitting in front of it. It was an eye-opening exercise for me. I've learned that my mental image of things is often distorted. (Like I said, I'm not a great artist.) If I want to make sure I get hand positions correctly, I have someone pose for me, or I take a photo of someone posing for me, and reference it. Is that not allowed?

Sorry, but as a physics guy I can't let you get away with saying that Curiosity is light years away...more like light minutes...around 7 min right now and 22 min when we are as far a part as possible.

Your own image is fine. But there are a million pics of the Golden Gate bridge. You will have a hard time making a drawing that would not look like one of them--even one you took--so come up with something else or be prepared to discuss it a lot.

And for those wondering why shirts lower in the fog are less scrutinized...it has nothing to do with the artist or a threat. Shirts below 100+ votes will not print, so why bother? Pretty much every artist who fogs has been subject to drama. Good competitors accept it and move on, either correcting or not.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

I've attached my three iterations, just to show that it's a rough outline that doesn't match the previous contentious image.

Please vote again...



Major props for being so persistent and working through the issues.

I think the IT Crowd one.
I LOVE that show, but im pretty sure the 8 bit graphic of Roy and Moss has GOT to BBC copyrighted, it doesnt look any different from the opening credits from the show :/
I tattled on it even though id really want that as a shirt.

[quote postid="5175856" user="omarfeliciano"]Not original work, sorry.

I did create the 8-bit characters from the intro to match the theme, but I didn't copy that image...I guess next time I can make them more illustrative if I do another IT Crowd design, its not going to be printed anyways. I appreciate the feedback though guys.

Really you could say that all of the Mario(or other popular themes) referenced designs are not original either because those images are also being re-created...its hard to create a "pop-culture" design without someone saying it is unoriginal...its all about the context I guess...IDK, I guess that's why so many people don't want pop culture references anymore.

I do understand your concerns though, I'll know for next time. Derby=Stressful blegh :/

Is this considered original work?

http://shirt.woot.com/offers/keep-calm-heres-a-towel

I wouldn't think so, yet it was in the fog the entire time and is being printed. It wouldn't bother me if there weren't already tons of very similar shirts out there with the same concept/joke and everything. I just don't get it...

The difference between your shirt and the Mario shirts is they aren't directly traced like this image obviously is. It's not surprising you don't understand this since you were defending the exact same thing in the Eye washer thread. You can use a reference. You can't trace. Reference = your own. Tracing = you're a thieving fink.
