Why, thank you! It's only my second submission, so we'll see how it does.

Interesting that you're involved in this kind of imbroglio again, Alberto. Similar situation almost exactly one year ago. FTR, I tried to stick up for you back then.
I'm just surprised you didn't think people would find out and start making noises about it, Tjost got in your face pretty hard back then. Oh well, hand me the popcorn and let's see if this prints on both sites!

Oh man, white! I can't do white, but this is sooooo good! If this prints I may just have to take my chances.

Thanks guys! I really wasn't expecting much for this reworked design, but I'm happy that you like it enough to have this many votes.

@sonofafish Thanks man, I really appreciate that thought!!!

@Arabesque It is a reworked design I made back in 2012 Here is the link

Man, this is embarassing. I didn't realize that loooong comment wasn't in the thread for its corresponding entry. Sorry for the threadjack. Like I said in the prederby, this rocks!

Re: Why so Sirius?



Not to be that guy but the stars in this design look taken from the images on http://powerpetsmania.com/ppm/profile.php?guide=backgrounds. I don't think it's allowed to pass anothers work off as your own but I leave to the woot staff to say (image below).



Also the clouds behind the dog looks like a photo of a nebula, but I can't find the photo so it's hard to say. Don't want to make accusations that cannot be proven.

This is my first Derby entry. I wanted to make sure that I didn't miss anything. I added a description, but I don't see that anywhere. Is that just for Woot to see?

I am assuming you don't use photoshop. The stars are used using one of their preset brushes that comes with photoshop. they are in the shape of the constellation Canis Major.

Many many apologies to the artist.

Before you apologize, this is the same artist who took a photo off the internet that he probably didn't make, ran it through image trace, and posted it as a derby entry. he didn't do a good job of covering his plagiarism. A little skepticism about his entries is called for.

sonofafish wrote:You give so much feedback, it's only fair that someone reciprocate:

I really like this design, but right off the bat, I think you robbed yourself of some votes by using a thumbnail that doesn't tell the story.

I don't think asymmetry is problematic. the solidness of the color is more of an issue for me. It's a bit of a missed opportunity where you could have loaded the "positive space", and in this case I think even general foliage would fit the bill and give viewers a little more to be drawn in by / fall in love with.

I think maybe more saturated colors too, although that is more a matter of taste; I just think I'd like it a little more if the colors popped a bit more.

I really like the use of alternative media (cutouts), but you gotta know you're taking a chance when you do that. Anyway, lovely work overall, keep thinking outside the box!



Thanks for the feedback and compliments.
You bring up an interesting point: what to put in the thumbnail?
Sometimes I haven't clicked on a thumbnail because I felt it told the whole story and I wasn't interested.
I felt that the Buddha head didn't look right for the thumbnail, with no facial features.
I hoped the contrast between the bird in the thumbnail and the title would pique curiosity.
But I agree, I should have gone with something that "told the story."
This item has so few votes, I'm wondering if I should just resubmit with a Buddha head thumbnail and lose the votes that it already has.

I hate to tell you, but the best thing for you to do is just chalk this derby up to a loss and focus on collecting your energy for the thursday night hustle coming up later this week.

Generally speaking, I find that for those of us without a big fanbase, posting after Monday is almost completely pointless.

Don't feel too bad about low vote counts, we've all had them. Just come back stronger next time!

Re: Fury of the Night



While I love the movie and character, and I generally like this design, I have to wonder how this can be considered for printing. This is no less of an obviously copyrighted character than Batman and Mario and all those designs have to be tweaked to be more strictly allusions or parodies to be printed.

Hey, welcome to the derby! Yeah, only they see the comment, but I suspect they crib from it for the write up if you put something really funny in there.
