Undestood, though the only time I got to watch him was when I was working nights in manufacturing and child-sitting in the morning right after its debut in 1999. We'd been waiting for it almost a year, as Mark O'Hare (one of the lead animators) was at Purdue while I was there, and had a great comic strip for those 4-5 years ("Art Gallery"). The Purdue newspaper hyped it for months before it debuted.

Good times.

I feel as if this isn't close enough to any of the actual characters, but maybe that's just me. None of the characters these are based on have ever looked like that. $0.02

Zach and A.C. Slater no. Generic high school D-bags yes. If we think what we're looking at looks too much like a copyrighted character it will get rejected.

For text: Proper nouns "i.e. Mario or Bayside High School" are a no-no.

A good rule of thumb in dealing with pop-culture is tread lightly and don't get all butt-hurt if you get rejected (or someone else doesn't.)

This rule is a little unclear this time, so I just went with what Travis said in the pre-derby thread. I am kinda taking a risk since I don't know if these will be considered "generic super-heroes". If it doesn't work then I'll try something else. It will possibly be something Tamagochi-related.

Is altering colors not significant enough? Oh well, I guess I'll put this one to rest.

Maybe I'm not remembering right, but I thought this one was rejected before (in which case, no alterations are needed to resub it in a later derby)?

Am I missing something?

LOVE this design.

I originally submitted it for the Internet / Art History derby, but it looked like this:



I tweaked the colors, and redid the hair shading. I thought that would get me through, but alas.

Yeah, these are totally not copyrighted. I see it as a combination of a bunch of elements of different pop culture 90s characters.

Is it 100% safe from rejection? Nope. Obviously you never know with those guys what they'll do...

This is a great idea, btw. I'm having fun looking at this and trying to figure out the references. I think I have them all figured out except the green one...

Idea: what if you'd combined 90s elements all into a single super hero? ...or maybe that's un-ninties since it was a time of Power Rangers, Ninja Turtles, Battle Toads, and other teams of heroes/parties of heroes.

The green one is supposed to be Link. I wonder if I could have made it resemble him more clearly. Hmm. Incidentally the Green Ranger also plays an ocarina-type thing.

Re: Kitchen Safety 1999



I think this is a clever design, but I have to agree with what someone else said. Spongebob was the very first of the 2000's generation of Nick cartoons. He was VERY different from the 90's Nick cartoons. IDK, it just seems off topic a bit. But I think it's a well executed design.

Re: K vs Blue 1996

This is the first reference that I understand! (Besides Game Boy...) This is a super-clever depiction of a news event that also represents the progress in computing power and AI, which I think were two of the technological revolutions of the '90s that had enormous impact. It's really nice to see a design that's referencing news events instead of just entertainment.

You keep choosing things from '99 that are very much iconic of the next decade, not the 90's.

Harry Potter and Spongebob are not 90's culture. That's like saying Nine Inch Nails is a famous 80's band because "Pretty Hate Machine" was released in 1989.

Nice. Thought about doing an AOL one (with all of the discarded "free" discs), but decided the copyright thing would bite.

I worked nights during much of the 90's, so it all blurs together for me.

I *did* see Office Space at the theater, though. Twice. (And I was going for a riff on Office Space and the red Swingline stapler (though I made sure not to model a real brand of stapler, to avoid IP issues).
