It's hilarious once you get it, though.


On your other design, you don't want a big blob of ink on the chest, that will wear horribly. "punch-through" the kid to be the same color as the background.



It is. The silhouette will be shirt color. Is that what you mean?

Update: Is this still too obscure?

Yes, better, but your core subject is still obscure. (hint: not the game, everyone knows Galaga )
Also, needs some "splats" to drive it home.

Maybe make his hair longer and frizzier too. He was never had a neat head of hair that I saw. I saw him live many, many times and usually in the first couple rows.

Thunderthighs can you tell me what size the.pictures have to be to submit them? Also can we use blue for the shirt color this week?

Yea, or a hat. The mallet needs to be bigger, more recognizable. It had a darker smashypart that was proportionally larger than currently depicted, for starters.

Re: Inspired by Portal -- I'm tryna figure out whether I'd prefer a clever interpretation on a game title (i.e. Donkey Kong, as previously) or just a nice shirt that uses a title as a general theme. Seems the latter was the winning formula for the previous derbies of this sort, but that to me seems a lot like "draw some things based on stuff".

I guess it's power to the people, at this point. Good thing there aren't many cat games.

Personally, I don't think so. Perhaps it's a split along age/generations? I think they brought him back for a Geico commercial, tho, so he's got that going for him! =)

Would it break the feel of the game to show him from the front, get the facial hair (and suspenders? he does suspenders, doesn't he?) to work for you?

No, but celebrity likeness rejection would likely follow....possibly... are pixelated likenesses considered obfuscated enough?

Also, I agree with TT, more "wild" to the hair.

Super smash bros inspired! More fine tuning required.

I find it sad how so many entries are identical in concept, even sadder that many designs already subbed are ideas I was toying around with...

Turns out that when you haven't worked on a design for many months... you forget to do things like save your work as you go in case of crash.

You are my hero. I used to watch all the HBO specials when I was a kid.

He's in a commercial for geico or something now.

I'd just like to put this out there as an idea- I'd love to see a design based on the game Dreamfall. I'd love to see the interpretations based on that name.
