Vote, create, duel and Threadless with all of your heart! And do a little smack talking while you're at it. Also some GIFs of butts and dancing, because GIFs.

the poop tee is so cute, and quite informative. If I had a child, I would want it in a baby onesie.

this is kind of where I am with my pattern, not too sure where to go with colour. may just sub as is because I'm tired of it.

I think it works really well as a one color pattern, sub it! :-)

Lidija, I love your animal facts. You need to do one about gross animal stuff that is put in our food. Like insects for red dye, beaver anal secretions for "vanilla" flavors, etc. Mmmm.

That's an awesome idea!!! I also wanna do one about bacteria that live inside us and help us function.Our little internal friends :) These are so much fun to do. Did you know they put fish scales into lipstick?

both of those would be really cool to join my other two in the teachers' comp. That way I get 4 pieces with 4 images each, yay balance!

Chayground

the insects and poo designs are so lovely, they both deserve to be printed!

I've been away again and now have "real" work to do again that I can't put off any more. I'm really really hoping I can manage to do at least one entry for the "science" challenge as it is my favourite subject matter, but it's not looking like I will. Boo hoo! :(

celandinestern
celandinestern profile pic Alumni

thanks Chay! Hey you've been amazingly productive in the minimalism comp, you deserve a platybreak :) Try to sneak in some free time for at least one science sub though, that comp is awesome. I'm still trying to come up with a concept for it.

Chayground

I have a problem, and I don't know if it's just me, or if everyone feels a bit like this.

When I look on threadless, especially at the "top unprinted" thread, but also at the profiles of those with awesome prints, and often just as I'm scoring entries, I just think

"man, there is so much talent out there, so many people deserving of a print without one, deserving of many prints with just one, or deserving and receiving prints left, right and center, that I should just give up!"

I reckon I feel like this about 50% of the time, the other 50% of the time I look at the stuff and think "wow, that's inspiring me to try harder and do better"

The trouble is I have no control over it. Some days I'm inspired, other days depressed by it! (sometimes over the same piece of work!) I realise this makes me sound a bit bi-polar but I think perhaps it just makes me sound human? right?

hahahah :)

it just makes you human, Chay. I feel the same way, half and half. Just wait for the good half to come along and then draw draw draw!!!!

celandinestern
celandinestern profile pic Alumni

wait for it to pass.... look at other people's cool art, that always inspires me in the end. Focus on how making art makes you feel. I really believe the most successful designs are those we didn't make trying to be great artists, but trying to express what makes us happy or excited about life.

hahahah it is a super awkward interview!!!

why was it declined? copyright? whut?

TheInfamousBaka

That interview was painful to watch, but she seems like a cool person. :-)

Stinks that you get declined, amaara. :-( Are you going to try anything else, or maybe take out the furby?

Chay, draw inspiration from others but don't get yourself into a slump by comparing yourself to them. My tumblr feed is always a constant source of inspiration, but also a "This person is amazing and a genius and I wish I could be like that." but you have to tell yourself that it isn't a very productive way of thinking. :-) We're our own worst critics.

yup, not enough parody. I especially think its that drawing of a furby.hrmmmm. I had a feeling, but it was really good drawing practice for me anyway, plus I had a reason to try out your pattern-making method!

worked really well, this was definitely the most intricate pattern I've ever managed.

well that's something at least :) glad it worked for you!!!

yeah, we can't all be the best in the universe. What I always tell myself when I get daunted by amazing artwork is that hey, not even Mathiole and Silverqe get a print with every single sub, and other people besides them do end up getting printed. So that's something :) We can't all be the best, we don't need to all be the best. Just keep on truckin' :D

I couldn't agree with this more. Chay, don't ever worry about being the best artist a) because by definition there's no such thing, art being subjective and all, and b) the old tenet rings true, as good as you get, there will always be someone better. Just have fun with it and try your best to transfer that fun onto the tee.

^ I agree. Chay, the universe is infinite! What's the sense of be the best on this tiny planet?

alrighty I had a very depressing day yesterday, but today I have been reborn with boundless new energy and enthusiasm!!! Allow me to share!!

I've set up a proper design portfolio!!!

My work got published on a Serbian design portal!!!

gebe the magnificent made my pokemonz carrrrd!!!

Can life get any better? Methinks not!!! There is actually more good news but more on that when I know more (no it's not threadless prints). Hugs!!!

Your portfolio is beautiful 0.0 you made it by yourself?

Wix is a free website maker, gebe - their editing software is suuuuper easy, you just drag and drop things, you can adjust everything and it really doesn't take long to get things looking great!!! It's free if you don't mind putting up with their ads etc.

I had a website that I coded myself and it looked pretty much like that but without the sliding galleries, (this was like 6 years ago when I was dabbling in web design) but it was so much work to keep it running and the hosting really cost a lot considering I was doing nothing with it. So I let it die and now I made the Wix one to show prospective clients, because there's nothing lamer than pointing people to your facebook page when they ask for a portfolio.

celandinestern
celandinestern profile pic Alumni

thanks :) it's so easy to maintain too. I really like how they've arranged things. Really user-friendly.

yay for ideas!!! I have two or three new pattern concepts plus the new two biology lessons spinning around in my head, but worrrrrrrk so gets in my way.

I managed to make my own all alone XD I know, it may looks way better, but I like to have a total control over my stuff :)

hahaha awesome :D I loved making my own site, but I never was a brilliant coder so every change took me sooooo much time and trial and error to get things to work. But yes it's an amazing feeling when you're putting it together from nothing. I'm just lazy now.

can't wait to make more of those.

Thank you for doing those stat cards, Gebe! They look awesome. :-D

I like how your portfolio is simple and to the point, Lidija. :-) It works really well with your intricate and colorful style!

Seems like a lot of us are bogged down with work this week and the lack of Michael is very noticeable. Dang swing shifts! I'm hoping I can get a thing or two done this week.

Honest Abe finished at a 3.23 and only 24 ones! :-D Good job zayed and Daniel~

Lidija, your science/teaching designs are so good. Love them. And congrats on all the recent achievements.

Gebe, those stat cards are pretty great.

Lost the Threadduel with a 3.08, 48 fives & 37 ones out of 187 votes. Feel a bit crappy about it. I have thought about reworking the design on a lighter color but the color would be duller and less 80s.

Also my new 90s sub "Full of Beans" is scoring/bombing. I am not complaining but most of the highest scoring 90s designs are things from the 80s; kind of discouraging.

I also came with a winning 90s concept but don't have time to finish it.

Please excuse my negativity.

TheInfamousBaka

Only 187 votes, man that stinks. I think maybe if you ever re-do it, just do solid bright colors instead of adding the textures and draw the bricks in the background. I think it would score better then, though that's just my opinion. :-)

I think your beanie baby design is funny, though it's a joke that you have to sit and think about for a second and people don't tend to mull over things while they're voting. Voting is rough right now. Things either get no attention, or get a ton of attention and then get down voted to hell, unless you're well known and have a pretty solid fan base to counter the hate.

Just keep it up, Josh! :-) You're noticeably getting better and better.

celandinestern
celandinestern profile pic Alumni

voting is so crap right now. Things get attention for 2 days and that's it, after that nobody calls, nobody writes. Sadness.

Yeah man, if you have the time. Could you please use a cutout from this design for the image; I think it best represents the style I try to work in.

Sorry guys i have been a bit quiet this week, i am voting on all house pies as soon as they go up so i am always giving my support :-) i just noticed my paranoid android design has increased its scores by 134 in three hours and has dropped from page 2 to page 4, some severe down voting is happening i assume :-(
