This design is a play on The Evolution of Man chart.
Does that not qualify as a mashup? A good example of my confusion would be @dooomcat 's amazing shirt today, which are the Mandalorian characters in her trademark cute/comic style. Would you mind explaining why one is allowed and the other isn’t?
Sorry if I’m taking it hard. It’s my first rejection.
So these were from different derbies with different rules. Mash-ups were absolutely allowed in the current inventions derby, but your invention couldn’t be something that existed as is. From what I can tell (and know) the droids you illustrate are drawn as they are in their respective franchises/brands/IP.
If you had illustrated say a new version of these droids/robots with like an upgrade or something, that would not have been dq’d.
That’s not to say we don’t want the design though…so you may consider subbing through the regular portal, or subbing to another derby?
Got it. Thank you for the clarification! I’ll read the rules more carefully next week
Thanks for asking!
DQ’s hurt my heart…I never feel good about a rejection…
