Cute girls if they weren't airbrushed into oblivion.

Nice and clean design... but an unfortunate victim of Photoshop overkill!

lousy photoshop. it wrecks the images.

Think it for a while.
Then, in anytime, it will come to your mind as an idea.

you guys that are bashing the photoshop work, ever hear of a pinup girl? They're supposed to be a fantasy and not look like every woman walking down the street.

Cool!
Though the artworks seem so artificial.

Yeah, the images are made to look like paintings on purpose.

I thought this site was for ads of the world not calenders of the world. Seems like they could do good
ads for a roller derby team. How hard is it to do anything for a roller derby team?

The printed version is a great work of art. Yes, photoshopped, but appropriate for the context of what the designers were going for. There is a lot lost on this calendar by only viewing the web resolution. This was used as advertising for our league. We have 4 teams and one undefeated travel team. Bob77, this is a roller derby team. Memphis Roller Derby.

I love this calendar! I'd love to see our league do the same, but it would be some drama deciding who goes into the calendar!!!

Thanks Soul Eater! Actually, the girls were chosen by the photographer, Tony Pearce. Archer Malmo provided him source to view pics of all the girls and he was told to choose 3 from each team. If a skater he choose wasn't available there was an alternate.

At least to my knowledge, that is generally how it was decided.
