Simpson Family Locomotion - Revised

The design is up for voting here.



Here's the process for my Simpsons entry. The concept was to mimic Edward Muybridge motion studies to commemorate "The Simpsons" historical achievement of being the longest running sit-com on television.


The humor of "The Simpsons" is obvious, so I focused on the family aspect of the show. At the end of the day, "The Simpsons" is about a family that has stuck together and loved each other for 25 years.


Revised final version (8.12.13)

Crazy well done! Can't get over the movement in Homer's flab. Now I've got the Muffin Top song from 30 Rock stuck in my head:)

Love it. So nicely thought out and executed.

I love your design, kuro_te. It's clever, memorable, quirky, and elegant. Voted $5. But I thought starting forum threads asking for scores was looked down upon here? Am I wrong in saying that?

You are indeed correct, and I've probably referred you to a guide to the Threadless forums. This was a thread documenting my design process. It's considered acceptable to turn a work-in-progress thread to a promotion thread once the design is up for scoring.

What is frowned upon is creating a thread for the sole purpose of soliciting votes and comments. Threads like that generally don't contribute much to the forum or community.

Thank you for the kind clarification kuro_te! I was just looking through the forums for some cool designs to score, and I'd rather ask prior to doing anything that annoys people. :)

The design is up for scoring, but I made some revisions to make it look more like a vintage Muybridge print. I increased the contrast, too. Overall, I think it's improved.
