Hello folks! This is my third shirt fight and what a fight it was XD. Just kidding. Anyways, this wasn’t my real design this week, just one that I did for fun because, oh, it was easy and didn’t take too too much work. So, just thought I’d do something extreme and kinda spiffy. Hope you enjoy. My other one kicks ass though

DESIGN NUMBER EIGHT: Extreme Afro Skull

Submission Site: ShirtFight (here)
Challenge/Competition: Shirt Fight #4 – Hidden (subliminal) Messages ( here )
Submission Date and Time: Friday April 10th
Concept: I just thought a skull with an afro would be cool. And I couldn’t resist.

Voting requirements: Must be registered on ShirtFight to vote for design. Though if you’re planning to go vote for me, I suggest you also look at some other designs up for voting as well. Some are really fantastic.
Outlook: Pretty lame. I did a pretty lame design. It was just for the fun of it.

Other notes: Did completely in photoshop elements with the marquee tool. Took not long at all.

Comments and votes are very much welcome and appreciated, but I suggest you hold out for my second one. There should be a woot this week, cuz I have the idea, I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. I’m being really lame about woot, I feel so ashamed.

May the force be with you, Abby

Design Seven: Beware of the Beasts: Results

So this was really really really exciting guys. I had my first truly successful design and I’m SO proud about it. This week’s design you can see on previous blog entries, and I submitted it on ShirtFight.com, which is a wonderful shirt designing website that I have been LOVING so far. Anyways, you’ll notice this isn’t atypical results because of the format of the site.

Anyways, the design went very well. I got LOVELY comments from people, none of which I can view anymore (:/) but that I can recap. People said they liked the beasts and I even got a comment from Miss Etti which made me so ecstatic that I ran down the hallways squee-ing. I was so excited to get that and I was super greatful for it. And here comes the best news of all: I GOT IN THE TOP 10 HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPIONS. I was so excited about this that I had a silent dance party (my dad was sleeping) and immediately changed my facebook status appropriately.

My top 10 can be viewed here:

And I’ll just copy paste what El Presidente/Miss Etti said:
“another really really clever idea, the “Miss from Massachusetts” really fooled me! I saw the boxes and thought “uh oh…what’s inside??” and then when I saw the glow in the dark part I laughed and said “awwwww!”. Great concept and well done Miss Llama!”
*blushes* Aw shucks thanks guys.

I’d really like to thank ShirtFight for this. It really made me SO happy and made my day THAT much better. I really really really appreciate all of the voters who voted nicely for my design and everyone who commented on my design. I’m sending it to Woot to beg them to print it now, and hopefully that will yield results, though who knows? If that doesn’t work out, I might submit it at either Threadless or Cameesa. I want this one printed cuz I worked super hard on it and I kinda like it.

So exciting news on all fronts. Congrats to my new compadre Sassa for winning this week! He had a super cool design, definitely worth checking out.

May the force be with you, Abby

I will be posting results for ShirtFight designs. Sorry about teh lies.
And I didn’t woot this week. Took so much time with the ShirtFight design I didn’t get a chance to do woot. Hopefully I will though this next time around cuz I’m gonna try to do the shirtfight one, oh, now.

Design Seven: Beware of the Beasts: Submission

Hello everyone! So this will be my second ShirtFight submission. You’ll notice I didn’t really do results for the last one, probably because there really wasn’t any way to measure my results. So, in the future, I’ll just let you know if I make the Heavyweight Champions list or in the case of the apocalypse, get printed. Woot results will still be posted. Anyways, this was a hard topic but I had fun with it.

DESIGN NUMBER SEVEN: Beware of the Beasts

Submission Site: ShirtFight (here)
Challenge/Competition: Shirt Fight #4 – Hidden (subliminal) Messages ( here )
Submission Date and Time: Sunday April 5th
Concept: For this challenge I needed to have a hidden messages. So I started thinking “things hidden inside boxes” and I just thought it would be funny if a “dangerous animal” crate had a bunny in it. And I went off from there

Design: (shirt comp)

higher quality with no glow /// higher quality with both images overlaid

Voting requirements: Must be registered on ShirtFight to vote for design. Though if you’re planning to go vote for me, I suggest you also look at some other designs up for voting as well. Some are really fantastic.
Outlook: Okay. I’m pretty much guarenteed the top because there’s only like 10 submissions so far. So yay for me! This might be the only shirtfight I have a slight chance of winning which would be beast but, I doubt it.
Design Specs:Asphalt ShirtFight Shirt, 5 Colors plus glow ink.

Other notes: This one I did completely in Photoshop Elements and with my tablet which I was quite proud of to say the least…uhm…yeah that’s about all the other notes.
———————————————————————————————————————
Comments are more than welcome and very much appreciated. I had fun with this design, and I hope you guys like it. There is a fair possibility that I’ll submit this one on Threadless if it fails (after fixing a couple things) because I’d like to have one that I worked so hard on (4 hours!) get printed. I mean, how cool would that be? Anyways thanks for reading guys!

May the force be with you, Abby
