This is awesome. Two of my favorite things! ...and I can totally see Jessie wearing a watchmen shirt-

I really like the blue but think I agree with apelad about the grey popping slightly more.

Not sure who is supposed to be on the throne. If that is Joffrey, then the dragon would only make sense if it was shooting fire at him, IMO. Also, keep in mind that there are three dragons. Perhaps having the other two flying around the throne while Viserion toasts some buns would work.

Great idea, though.

Love it! So funny, my first thought was "cute walter & jesse" and I even started doodling them. Glad I didn't go much further 'cause I wouldn't have been able to compete. Nice work.


PS Thanks KP. Yeah, after I gave up on the cute-Walter I started thinking of other 'evil' characters I could make cute and Joffrey was the first one that popped into my head. I kind of thought it was 'cuter' to have the dragon licking the candy cane throne - but I do like the idea of adding the other two flying around. Appreciate the advice!

@Ewing - I like green, then lemon!

@omar- I think the colors go better on the royal blue.

I went with asphalt instead of black because it seemed like a softer base color for all the halftones to live on...

I would love to see some sarcastic cuteness, like things vomiting things and whatnot.

I think you made a good choice- that's a lot of color you summoned from 6 spots... Fun design.

God I suck at cute. I re-drew a really old derby entry. It's the six types of quarks. Any tips to cuten it up? I'll likely redo the shading.

Cool, cheers oaken. I managed to make the orange from a careful red/yellow halftone. It's like 7 for the price of 6.

I am always a sucker for cryptids, and these are done so well. I love the personality and detail in both. Great job.

I think burg = burgundy = cranberry.

Guess I'm the only one who likes the green best.

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

Can only reply in spurts since Im at work- ;) I agree- Don't know if the arms are needed- also, you can change alot about the characters just by slightly altering the placement and size of the faces. The ones you have are great, but play around and see if you like it better- I know I went through about 10 versions on mine.

What do you think?



I think if you add ", man" to it like your wife suggests, if you've ever heard the song it makes sense and plays in your head making it more impactful to the reader.

I like it the best so far, but I wish the graphic was a little more new, clean & shiny; as opposed to the worn & vintage look, since the derby is cuteness. (I'm not saying it isn't cute, it is. I just think it could be cuter if not for the vintage look.)
