Yup. I was a dumbass and thought I could submit on the 30th.
Turns out I misunderstood from the start and it was the cutoff.
Oh well. I saw every entry, and I think I would have juuuust missed the top-10 spot. There were, in my opinion, about a dozen amazing pieces, that when I studied them, thought "Yep. That would be a great shirt. They really got the know-how for graphic design."
There are things about this pict that make me unhappy. Poses of hands, pose of the characters, the background, etc. BUT, I had fun with this, even if Lewis's torch arm made me insane because I simply couldn't get his hand tilted right over the course of 5 hours.
I have an alternate background that's just white, and another with the circle painted with some simple, blurby biomes like a little world, but, it was extremely distracting. With this ravine bg, I figured 'a bit
less is more'. lol Also, I based this general pose concept on the iconic image of Calvin and Hobbes flying over a hill in a wagon. I found it fitting, and fun to pay respects to the beloved characters and art styles of the classics. Last design thought, is the typography. I was nervous about exact placement, which is incredibly import for the flow of the viewers eye, but when I went to look up the original quote from Simon on youtube, I found that he didn't say it very smoothly. It was more like captain Kirk, but not as sudden. Just spread out, which I think I managed here. Just barely. I hope. XD I left out the "Lewis,-" bit, only because I have the pair of them already here, and they say it so often. BUT ANYHOW, this is way too much info. I'm sorry. lololol
The original image is roughly 12x12 inches, I believe. I'm going to end up throwing this in the art section of the Yogscast forums anyhow, simply because I did put effort into it. Oddly enough, when I realized I missed the deadline (and was unfinished with this at the time) I worried less and more ideas came to me. I have no idea why that ended up that way. I would have been so proud, and it would have been amazing fun to get this on a shirt, or just get a shirt from their store. Having the guys take a look at it would have been great. I don't want any fame, but I do love the idea of lurking at the edges of it. Just an itsy bit. lol
