[+duracell-]

I agree the110..unfortunately I've never said photos shouldn't be used on shirts. I've only stated that the payout should be less. Obviously playing with lighting is easier than creating an entire design from scratch. To argue against that would be silly and nonsensical.

ginetteginette
ginetteginette profile pic Alumni

duracell, without falling into a longwinded arguement here... you're wrong. the design world doesn't entirely work payement on an hour by hour basis. just because someone can work out a design problem (making a design for threadless as a 'problem' that needs a 'solution' so-to-speak) faster than someone else doesn't mean their pay should be penalized! if some other designer's method is to work on a threadless design for 100 hours they shouldn't be paid more just because their method is overly time-consuming. that's the designer's own issue.

Duracell the worth of a piece of art/design/illustration is not directly proportional to the amount of time it was made. That's just a dumb way of looking at things.

Tonteau

igo2cairo

Awesome!! Congrats Randy, this makes an amazing tee!

[+duracell-]

I wish you guys could just read what i wote instead of arguing against something you think i said or intended. Something halfway finished (take cooking for example) is easier to complete then something thats not finished at all. It's a very simple concept.
Everyone seems to accept the reason why typetees get paid less. You aren't submitting the design, just the idea. With photos you arent submitting a created design either, you are just altering something already created. Therefore we can conclude that photo prints should be paid somewhere in between $500 and $2200.
Now if this doesn't happen then don't be surprised if we continue trending towards more and more photo designs. If that is cool with you then cool. :shrug:

ginetteginette
ginetteginette profile pic Alumni

you are terribly misguided.

the110
the110 profile pic Alumni

Haha are you for real duracell?

littlem

duracell, people have subbed photos before and they don't always look fresh on a tee.
also, it's not just any photo. ir0cko actually snapped and edited that photo. it's an artform in itself, if you know anything about photography. anyway, you're entitled to your opinion of photo-tees getting less payout. you are in the minority thusfar.

[+duracell-]

Yeah I wish Veloso. In reality, its not brilliant at all, it's just common sense.
For the record, I didn't virtually crush anyone's imaginary ice cream cone either. I actually do like the t-shirt.

littlem

bloke228 on Apr 28 '09
@littlem: it was somebody else who made the effective suggestion of removing the "suspenders" so you seem to be suggesting Bio-bot 9000 take a cut and some credit for mastery of the artform, right? Or was it the way irOcko wielded the eraser tool or adjustment mask that counts?

huh?
it's irocko's photo. photography and editing is as artsy as it's made to be. i've made many suggestions to artists, that they've implemented into their design. i would never demand a cut or credit for it. i don't know what your point is, exactly. good day.
