Re: Leaper's Creed
Andy, I think your design is suffering from a plague of frogs. Take a look at how many frogs are in this derby- my rejected design had, I think, sixteen in it alone.
To get a lot of votes, for this theme, your frog is going to have to be one hell of a terrific frog. It is a good one, don't get me wrong, but the whole cartoony look just doesn't stand out from the others. I don't think that the stuff you put around it particularly adds a lot, though the halftone dots are quite good, and certainly big enough that woot can print them.
Fortunately for no1, the plague of locusts hasn't arrived yet to gobble down his corn. They are coming, though, I can sense it.
