Not meant to insult the American soldier - just the notion of war and the people who initiate them.

wo

cJw

Is it just me or does that monkey look ston - ehd?

inVZbl

Like the start off… ill respond soon… just got to get some work out of the way…

zdoob

inVZbl: I noticed that you’re in Sydney. Very cool. I’m in Manhattan.

thadwiddle

aw yes - something fresh and new! i just can’t get enough of anti-war sentiment lavished with originality and depth.

inVZbl

Hasta la Victoria Siempre Monkeys!!!

anyways that’s my first response, had so many ways to come back at it, but this was the first thing that popped into my head

great reply, inVZbl. That little highlight of blue and white balances all that red very well! And good job morphing Che Monkey…

zdoob

Nice job! Thanks for raising the bar. I love it. I’ve got a bunch of work to do for Friday, but I’m really psyched about making my next image.

This site is addictive. I’m almost happy that there isn’t a lot of activity - otherwise I’d get nothing done.

inVZbl

Thanks for the response so far, its great being able to do collab with other great designer from around the globe… cant wait to see the next one

zdoob

All of the red in image 2 immediately reminded me of a certain band - which I happen to really dislike…

V nice parody of the ‘Stripes’, and keep uses elements from both previous images. Smart too. More or less keeps with the theme, I think? From what I gather (I’m new here), this thread is what a designlologue is supposed to be.

thadwiddle

very clever

inVZbl

Nice one, the cowboy suit looks good. Love the glow on it… damn gotta think of a clever response now…

fashionvictim

it’s funny, i saw a shirt at a tshirt store that was just black with white type. it said: The White Strokes

thought it was great!

inman

That glow is like Tron meets the Wildly Homo-erotic West.

Lincoln

wow, I think you’re onto something there with this homo-erotic western tron thing. Somebody call hollywood and make this happen.

inman

Somebody get Helena Bonham Carter on the phone and get her to agree to dress up like a monkey-lovin’ Ape again. So not hot.

inVZbl

Thought i would switch it around abit, and introduce a new colour… the red was beginning to bother me for some reason… Now its time for the RIAA to strike back at the kiddies and get the millions they well deserve… um okay…

Nice work. This gives me an idea…

zdoob

I decided to air it out a bit.

inVZbl

kewl, nice come back… cleaned it all up… ill be posting soon…

inman

Nice treatment on the headshot! The line and type treatment at the bottom feels a little tight though. Nice bowtie Napster, you sell out. ;D

cram

where is the monkey ??

bharper

monkey in the middle

cram

dance with the monkey..comeon

miyavi

I’m surprised there wasn’t a reference to Napster’s ports somewhere in that mugshot. (ah, 6699, we will miss the goodies you delivered…XD)

inVZbl

sorry zdoob, ill post a reply image soon. Just been so busy at work and landscaping my house on the weekend, havent had time to do shite as yet…

zdoob

No sweat.

Landscaping a house sounds sweet. I live in a little box with no sunlight, a closet of a kitchen, and a male prostitute upstairs.

inVZbl

The Napster Strikes Again….

this is fabulous. if i was sitting on a chair, i would have fallen off it.

RevDrLuv

Outstanding type treatment here. Really takes it to the next level.

inman

Tops indeed, inVZbl. The Rev is right about the type making it.

Nice use of the yellow bar from the previous image. Were you upside down for this one too?

inVZbl

my head certainly felt like it… bloody felt like it was about to explode…

cant wait to see what zdoob comes back with though

zdoob

Great job! Looks just like the movie title.

Blake Edwards is a genius.

Lincoln

yeah, that’s pretty cool. I’m not totally sold on his head but its still a 4

thadwiddle

one thing that’s a little distracting:

the 2 different colors of the tail

inVZbl

shite… thats what i forgot to do… the shadows underneath the characters… that why his tail is darker than the rest…

jeromius

most original dsnlg in awhile.

I like.

bharper

the face really doesn’t do it for me. but otherwise, its GREAT (4)

Lincoln

i didn’t notice the tail. can I change mine to a 1? ;p

yeah, this is a great logue. almost every image has taken a different direction, but you still manage to always incorporate the previous one and stick to the theme

zdoob

The Pink Napster needs to learn tact…

the pink napster always gets the girl :P

Thanks zdoob for the designologue.

I’ll just say that I love the progression in this ‘logue.

inVZbl

no offence but some ppl are fuct… u vote a low score without any explanation, critisism or improvement… how does that help any1 on this site?

clevsone

personally I thought the last one was the one of the bests..for this logue…to bad it’s gone…anything that makes me laugh..is great in my book… invz… I like your last image it fits well…with all that happened…

zdoob

it’s interesting that the thumbnail from the original image stays… kinda cool - like a nod.

unfortunately, it looks like if you voted on the original image, you can’t vote on the new one. i guess this image must carry the burden of the lower score of the previous?

i think the image looks cool, and is clever… but it doesn’t really follow the progression.

thanks for the logue inVZbl!

inVZbl

thanks for my first designologue zdoob… it was good.

yeah for the last one i decided to go with the striked image theme, sorry i went abit off, but the idea seemed good at the time…

zdoob

thank YOU my man.

i really like it. you don’t get too many chances to play off the striked image theme… or do you? ;)

inman

zdoob, you should refresh or clear your cache, this image’s thumb should be loading. As for the ratings, that’s not something I considered. I’ll see if there’s an easy way to wipe the existing ratings for the old image. I can’t promise anything though since the rating storage system is just dumb. I didn’t know what I was doing when I developed it. Not a lot has changed ;D

inman

Ugh, yeah, very dumb storage technique. Fortunately only 10 people had rated it so I cleared the existing rating count, sum and average and then deleted the reference to this image from everyone’s list of rated images. Done. Then I gave this image a 3. The only thing that kept if from fourdom is the lack of reference to the previous image (number 7 not the old number 8). You’re a good sport VZ.

zdoob

out of curiosity…

on average, how many people vote on any given image?

inVZbl

I just remembered i did reference the last one, only in the use of the yellow bar on the bottom…

inman

Ah…touché!

inman

Average number of ratings a single image receives: 10 Maximum number of ratings for single image: 30 Minimum number: 0

The minimum doesn’t surprise me. The average and maximum both seem low though. Goes to show how active the average member really is. Out of 750 members, 277 have never rated an image. Hmmm.

Beerad

Is that 750 members who can vote? I know that I have been lazy and not done a one off so I can’t vote yet.

inman

Bam, good point Beerad. Not all 750 are able to vote. My head is still addled by the medicine no doubt.

RevDrLuv

Sweet. This is a much better ending to this dsnlg anyway. Nice recovery inVZbl!

zdoob

i noticed the yellow bar, and one could argue that you also reused some design concepts from image 4, but you and I both know that each of these images had some meaning that progressed through the series… not just design elements. :p

regardless… i’m just glad it’s back and you rocked the last image.

inVZbl

yeah true, thinking about it i could have had daphne holding up a red card in a ref’s uniform, but ohh well…
