I finally finished this! This brings me up to four paintings of fanciful hermit crabs using weird things for shells.

I made something for the Rage of Demons contest on welovefine. Then I set it as my desktop background and forgot I'd done so. Next time I booted up my computer...a little startling, I must say.


Anyway, rate my design! 5's are awesome.

Rate my latest entry on WeLoveFine - http://community.welovefine.com/m/contests/design/38466 - I have crafted a sinister portrait of Peppermint Butler from Adventure Time. (You must have an account to rate designs. 5's are best. Voting open July 1 - 15, I believe.)

Art for Shadowfist. These are from a couple of months ago, but the terms of my contract said I couldn't put them up on deviantART and the like right away. Just looked again at the contract and it was safe to put them up on March 1. Oops. For some reason I was thinking it was April.

Voting is over for my second threadless design...it went very poorly. Worse than my little t-rex with a balloon.

Average Score: 2.3
285 Scores
16 Fives
79 Ones

Compared to:

Average Score: 2.72
172 Scores
20 Fives
44 Ones

More total scores, but far worse ratings. Maybe Cthulhu just didn't have enough mass appeal. I'll have to try something with a wider potential audience next time.

Planning to submit this to Threadless later tonight. Any feedback before the official submission is appreciated. Still time for tweaks.

For the "Make Ugly" contest on deviantART. Pity I couldn't make it more horrible, but hopefully it's dreadful enough.

Well, scoring for my first Threadless design is closed.

Average Score: 2.72
Total Scores: 172
Fives: 20

Total comments: 1

According to the FAQ:


What’s a good score?

Anything close to or above a 3 is considered a very high score. Remember, designs are only scored up to 5. A low score is no reason to get discouraged; many printed Threadless designers started out with low scores, too. Use the feedback to reinvent your design and take it in a different direction!

How are the submissions chosen?

The scoring system gives us an idea of which designs our community thinks are great. Then we look at the top scoring designs every couple of weeks and pick out designs to print based off the overall score, comments, and of course, its general awesomeness. We make the final decision of which designs are printed.


2.72 seems bad, but it's reasonably close to 3, so maybe not as bad as it seems? More than twice as many 1's as 5's seems really bad, though. I'm supposed to use feedback to improve the design, but I only have the one comment. I stumbled across someone else's submission that has not been printed in spite of its 156 5's, 3.34 rating, and 20+ comments.

So, yeah, I really have no idea how that went. Clearly it didn't go well, but I'm not sure how badly.

I revisited my cute little t-rex holding a balloon and submitted it to Threadless. Go forth and score my design! Tell your friends to score my design! Tell strangers to score my design! Etc.

I have cooked up an entry for another of WeLoveFine's contests - The Robot Uprising. If you have (or wish to make) an account on WeLoveFine, you can rate entries for the contest and help determine the GLORIOUS WINNER.

My entry is here:


...to confirm you have the right one, it will say "Designed by Wes" just above it. I painted a robot with a huge cleaving sword stepping through a tear in the shirt.

I you like my design, please give it a 5! If you don't like my design...um...move along quietly? Or something? You have until May 14th to rate things. Thanks.

A huge thanks to everyone who rated my designs for the WeLoveFine My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic t-shirt design contest. I am pleased to announce that my Fluttershy design earned a runner up position, and has been entered into The UberContest. So, the time has come to rate things again. If you like my design and feel like giving it a big shiny five and already have an account on WeLoveFine from before, or feel like making one now, then please head over and help me out again. Thanks!

My entry in the new contest is here:
