Thanks a lot. I dreamed this idea last night when I was sleeping unfortunately. I even dreamed of drawing it up and submitting it. Stupid dreams, always three days late.

I'm impressed by how successfully you were able to create the illusion of depth and volume in a silhouette.

I used several different references of fencers and cobbled them together into one image. Wish I could say I spent hours hand drawing it and getting proportions right, but it was done on my lunch break. I still see a lot of mistakes and tweaks to make, but I can't really win now anyways so it doesn't matter all that much .

I know exactly what you mean (see my reply above to punkfiveo). I didn't originally mean for him to be that way at all, but after he commented, I definitely saw the resemblance.

Great idea, I love it. It made me think of God's Final Message to His Creation. Which is, of course, we apologize for the inconvenience.

I just couldn't get this guy out of my head without doing the drawing. I think he probably quit one or two margaritas too late.

Yeah, it looks kind of late for him to be ordering his margaritas without the salt. I wonder if he got the worm. Now, how ironic would that be? It could be family! jejeje!

I think I like this one better than the rejected one. The sprinkling of salt is cute and I like the slug's eyes. A little worried about the grey on grey hues and whether they'd show up on the asphalt tee, but I like emotion of the design! Maybe a little light green liquid in the cup could hint toward the lime margarita and add a little depth to the glasses.

Re: fetal position



hmmm....not sure at all about the rejections here at wootville. if "fetal position" is off-topic for a quitting derby, i've been going into fetal position all this time for the wrong reasons. certainly not complaining...it's your world, woot-boss...i'm just living in it.

Also, seriously, that is how almost every monopoly game ends. Last time I played with my girlfriend, we did the 'quick game' where everyone gets 3 free properties to start. She pulled Boardwalk, Park Place, and Pennsylvania Avenue...otherwise known as the THREE MOST EXPENSIVE! Needless to say, I almost went pharaoh on the board.



ha, take comfort in knowing the pharaoh knows how you feel. great minds, eh?

I can't see wearing it either, but then I'm not nerdy, smartassed or young enough to qualify. Or male. This is a great shirt for the right demographic.

thanks! I love my shirts!!! I can't design but I can wear proudly!!! : ) The 12 step entry cracks me up since I need a 12 step program for woot! By the way, I'm working on my taxes right now. Can't wait till I get my refund so you can make the painting of my greyhounds. Plus, I want to take a picture of my red wall so you can maybe match the red in the tress since you have to make me a new one because the one I wanted was gone : ) my honey wants me to put my refund toward my credit cards; what fun is that? ; )

The funny thing is that you can have someone hanging themselves on a tree, but no dead cartoon cats

Aparagon you get points for persistance but not for logic. It doesn't matter how many voters say they like it, or that they think it is on topic. It matters what Woot thinks. It's their contest and their rules. They said the original was off topic. My guess it that they will stick with their original decision and reject this one too. You might try e-mailing with your explanation.

Good luck

I know- they don't. My shirt was rejected in error- he thought it had a gradient in the small image, and it didn't.
We discussed it, and agreed that it would be a bad precedent for him to reinstate it. SO I resubmitted it, same design, small change in the picture, heh, and it is getting some votes, though not as many as the follow-up design is.
