May the tortoise be with you
So this is my take on the "preloved" theme.
A certain someone wasn't using a certain helmet anymore so my tortoise friend decided to use it as a house!
A preloved item once used for evil now used for good! His friend is somewhat confused and surprised!
Thanks to Manos for the flash template and Sonmi and irOcko for the tee template.
Using the same tortoise in mirror image unfortunately flattens out any compositional interest. It's a time saver, but a design killer.
gotta agree with zeropluslessthan here. even just moving one of the turtle's feet around a bit would have killed some of the monotony.
also maybe it's because i'm not a hardcore fan of star wars or anything, but i don't think i would have jumped to the conclusion that this was a parody without the title. i would have just been like, wow that guy has a shiny shell, and the other guy wants to know where he bought it or something.
but whatever, it's sure to score well because people like everything with a star wars reference.
zeropluslessthan - i hear what your saying totally but I have to disagree that using a mirror images is a design killer. Lot's of successful designs have mirror image and repetition but you're entitled to your opinion and I respect that.
Ginetteginette, I hear you too - hopefully most people will realise it is darth vaders helmet - i didnt want to make it too obvious because I was unsure of copyright issues.
thanks for the comments though - i appreciate it!
6 more days....
this is so fun!!!!! awesomeeee!!!!$
awesome work, the placement of the leg is a bit bad tho it sorta looks like a peepee ;)
without the title, I doubt people will get it's Darth helmet.
back leg and tail blending together looks kinda weird too
and yeah i agree with other comments: people won't get this is darth helmet without the title
Yup, really looks nothing like Darth's helmet....maybe getting a light saber in there somewhere would help the concept ride a little better?
Alex! ok it does look a bit like a peepee!
Man, i thought more people would get that it was darth's helmet! Oh well, thanks for all the comments anyways. :)
I dunno... I'm not a huge starwars fan and knew what the helmet was. I'm in slight agreement with the mirrored design thing, mostly in that the turtles have nearly the same expressions... doesn't fit with the one saying "WTF?" to me.
If you've seen a Star Wars movie you know the helmet! Good work!
i see darths helmet
it is cool!
thanks for the comments people! :)
Really cool idea. Great! What method do you use to create your designs?
Bootzilla I use a combination of illustrator and freehand.
^hmm - not sure what your trying to say here??
