Ripley: Attacks from Space (Ms Paint) by kopfstoff
Ripley: Attacks from Space (Ms Paint)
Alien (Isolation) fan art again, called "Ripley: Attacks from Space"... since i wasn't be able to be among the lucky winners of the "Official Community-pack", i thought it's a good sign that i actually found another contest where the participants have to draw art to win art.

price: "THE ART OF ALIEN: ISOLATION". i need that book! found out about the contest on the day of the deadline, so i had to rush the ripley painting, lost too much time with all that wet tubes and pipes... but the idea works (homage of the great giger with a twist). wish me luck.

done with the standard pen in ms-paint. hope you like.

for a little bit brighter version and WIPs please visit my >blog.

//EDIT: I DID IT, just got a mail from one of the organisers, that Art Book is coming home! :D

Naughty Dog is my favorite Game-studio and The Last of Us my all-time favorite Game (seriously),
You all know that i love to do fan-art, and everytime ND opened a design/painting contest, i actually
found out about (missed the first big firefly fan-art contest, DAMN!), i took part in it.

Two contests until now, and i never won anything. my new daddy fan-art, the joel-sculpt didn't quite cut it... so to say.

the sculpt and a new "30th anniversary" artwork is in the race for the new 30th anniversary t-shirt design contest,
so if you like these two things, pretty please vote for me, since you can only win by high numbers and it's only
like ~two more days:

"ENDURED AND SURVIVED" (JOEL 3D Sculpt)

Your Birthday by kopfstoff
Your Birthday

"Over the past three decades, Naughty Dog has brought us some of  the greatest video games out there."



... so true. to celebrate that unique developer studio, i jumped right in and contributed this t-shirt design called "your birthday.". i found out about this contest by accident and instantly added my 3d sculpt of joel (you remember him?), but then i decided that this 30th anniversary is enough motivation to do an exclusive drawing - yeah! they pushed the deadline back a few days, otherwise i never would have started on this... but since i can't recall when the new deadline is over (blind...), the thought that it might be too late by the time i finish "your birthday." struck me very often while rushing the hard blending for the characters. at first i didn't like the edgy style on this one, i wanted to do soft blendings and more detail but i couldn't risk to be too late... now i like it as it is. hope you like it too, IF you do, pleaaaze share, like and vote for me ->

where to begin...


i've ordered a stretched canvas with a painting i did on it as a gift and the quality was incredible. honestly!
now i wanted to spend some money there again and bought printed fabrics for the first time. the order arrived today and i am bound to say, that i am shocked.

after unpacking (Tri-Black v-neck and Brown t-shirt), there was a heavy smell of printed fabric for some time in the room and the shirts were stucked together (at the printed design), as if they did not have the time to dry correctly. while the fabric quality itself is really good (the shirt i mean), the prints are dull, the white layer and the colour layer are not alligned correctly at the edges of the design and the colour itself is already "detaching" as small dots if you look closer. the print is also a bit "sticky" if you go over it with your hand.

the t-shirt is the biggest problem, since all the details are drowning in some brown/grey mud, the file is completely fine, i double-checked it and there's no problem at all.

the print on the v-neck shirt has atleast a bit more power on it, but the whole rectangular design is shifted in one corner (it's not just the stretched fabric, even on the straight shirt it's distorted).

i am really sad to experience this, because i really enjoy the paper/canvas art print quality they have, like their concept, the website layout, philosophy and offers. it's such a shame that so many great artworks from so many great artists don't shine through the fabric products. i know printed fabrics won't have the detail and "in your face" colours like art prints on high quality paper or on canvas, but thats quite not enough.

i really hope that these guys can change the printing process for fabric products, especially dark ones (there's the biggest problem as it seems) in the future. until then:

I ADVICE TO NOT BUY (DARK) PRINTED SHIRTS ON SOCIETY6!


here's what i got...



maybe white shirts/fabrics work better, maybe me and a lot of other people on the internetz just had bad luck, anyway:
i just pulled down all my shirt-designs and try to find a better provider for this. please don't get me wrong, the prints from society6 are fabulous according to my records, thats why i keep them up! but the shirts... "beyond suck" ;)

on the bright side:

i asked for a refund here, since i did some investigation and the internet is full of bad reviews of society6 fabric products - there are photos, videos and letters to back that up.
support answered me in about 5-10 minutes (seriously! that was FAST!) and already processed my refund! payment has been processed too... i don't have to send anything back, i can keep the shirts. at least really good service.

where do you sell your printed fabrics? are there good alternatives to society6?


i feel so sorry for all the people who've ordered (my) shirt-designs from society6, i hope that you're pleased with the result! i really do.

hope you all doing great, just wanted to post this real quick to warn you guys.
have a nice one,
david
