Thanks artulo!

Was done in Illustrator... to be honest, yeah it took WAY longer than I had first imagined. Started it late Friday night and worked on it in bits and pieces through Saturday. All told it was probably 5-6 hours of time... though spent some of it watching movies at the same time...

I'll take that as another vote to announce derby themes earlier in the week! With 24 hours from announcement to opening the doors and early votes so precious, that's the kind of work I had to skip...

I'm actually all for the 24 hour notice. I don't think having any more time would be beneficial because it wouldn't be just you or I getting that extra time; it would be everyone and that means that Cho and Jimiyo would have time to make more spectacular designs or more designs if they worked just as quickly. If anything, I think having more time between the announcement and derby opening would only widen the gap between the "professional" and "amateur" designers out there.

Re: Space Bunneh!



It would be neat to have glow in the dark on this shirt. Maybe some extra stars you couldn't see until they glowed or something.

Never say never, this shirt could still get fogged. Bunnies know how to hop!
... ok yeah, that was kinda lame... my bad.

So you're misrepresenting the shirt? It's supposed to be a white shirt with black lines? Or do you have a white filled moon on a black shirt? Either way, what you've done breaks the rules.

Re: Planet Earth



Yeah looks like ya took a projected image of the Earth and put it on a circle, which it wasn't intended to be projected on. I like the thought but it doesn't quite work.

You get this from Google Maps or something?

The best I can tell, you are correct, it is a Mercator projection just arbitrarily placed on a circle. This is why anartica was left off, because it would not fit the bottom of a circle.

Might I suggest to the artist, that when trying to do something like this, they look at other possible projections. If one were to use something like the Van Der Grinten projection, the result would have been a circle, but the shapes of the continents relative to it would have made sense.

Re: Star and Moon


I can't speak for Joel/Woot on the issue, but I'm pretty sure this will be rejected because you're supposed to make a design with lines, not fills that leave lines as negative space. Creative interpretation of the theme though. ^_^

Re: grow



This looks very much like something I would find in Microsoft Word's clip-art gallery, and less like a shirt design.

The placement is bold and reflects the well deserved confidence of the artist, but on a T-shirt, it looks like someone made a mistake.

Hmm, never thought of it that way. Maybe it would be even more quantity from those guys but don't think they're holding back too much on quality. Their DBH designs appear similar in effort. I would hope everyone's designs would improve -- amateur and pro.

As of yet I don't think any of my designs would be improved by having more prep time. I submit when I'm done, whether that's at noon on Friday or 3pm on Monday. ^_^ The only issue I find is when I'm busy during that 24 hours.

More prep time would be god, I have school thursday and friday, so normally I can't submit until friday night or saturday morning 'ish. That means that I sit around all week then work my @$$ off one day of the week. It makes it hard. Also if more prep time was given, people could submit theres on friday, meaning there wouldn't be as much favoritism towards good entries that get in first (if you make it into the fog, you get seen, you get votes).

My fighter plane made it into the hotness but has since fallen out and stopped climbing. I don't know that being in the hotness or fog really perpetuates a lot more votes; if it did I might still be there. ^_~ But it's true that some voters only look at the fog and hotness, which is unfortunate. Somehow prep time doesn't factor into that in my mind. I spent an hour on my design, maybe two, so having an extra 24 hours wouldn't have mattered.

I have flip-flopped my thoughts on this several times in the past weeks. Currently, I am in the thought that the professional illustrators would not get better necessarily, but the amateurs like me would not feel so rushed and could take a little more needed time to think it through.
As is, James and Jimiyo as an example can pop out a masterpiece with little or no time anyway, so they would not likely labor over anything for more than a day or two even if they had more time.
I’m sure my opinion will flip-flop again though.

True, but aren't all shooting for having the best designs go up on a shirt we'd buy. I know it would be great if that design was our own, but for me that's just a dream. When I first heard about this contest I thought "This is gonna be great competing with outer amateurs" but now I just want the best design to win and that will most likely be the pro design, and that's OK with me. Give 'em extra time it can only get better.

The designs that go up on Friday are quality as it is. I don't think more time will help the overall quality of the derby.

I think that is just the entrants responding to the reality of the derby. I've never heard of a shirt entered later than Monday morning getting printed. Let's say Woot announced the theme when voting closes on Wednesday. I think we would say a larger number of quality entries on Friday than we do now. That can only be good.

I just meant we'd get more to choose from. And my quality would have gone up... I'm a slow worker but I felt the pressure to get it in. I like the idea that give us an extra day and start submissions a day earlier. That way we'd feel we didn't have to get the design in the first day.
