At no point did i say anything about it being a crappy design or taking no time. I like the design, but it was being picked on for being too simple. I like simple and I create simple.
Do not tell me what I said.

I know how to read. Good simple designs quite often take far more talent than complex ones because they require an excellent concept to work. I guarantee Let it Grow took less than 10 minutes. look at the hotness now....I see a lot of similar ones now....are they all inspirational too? They are certainly simple. If simple is your goal, by all means have at it. But don't pretend it's not an approach driven by a desire to win over one to do good work.

I like the top shirts (and some not so top) whether they took 5 minutes or 5 hours each got my vote to wear.

Re: oh crud



This one is so cute! And, I love the fact that you chose an 'under-represented' color. The olive is actually so much nicer than the template color. I hope this isn't holding people back from voting for this great design. Here's hoping you get back into the fog!

Actually, you'd have to be insane to submit thing piece, and expect it to fog. If I was being a design whore this week, I would definitely not submit this, or those flowery things out of a desire to win. This is totally a surprise.

I wish I could agree, but week after week, I pick the worst design in the top 20, and it almost always closes in on, if not makes it into, the fog. Grow was my fog contender since the start. It's simple, has no concept, has no effort, but doesn't challenge the eyes or mind. I knew it'd fog. That's what woot likes as a community, and apparently woot as a business would rather be known for not having any quality control than for being a respectable shirt printer. It's an insult to the amateurs who are above that, and an insult to the designers who have to compete in a market that doesn't appreciate them.

Re: grow



I agree with Andy in that a simple design can be wonderful and I think the attention to detail in a simple concept is very well constructed in this piece. The delicate nature of the emerging plant and the lines tapering off to show growth imagery is beautifully demonstrated.

Based on the fact of having an overall impact and not a distracting feature, I am sure that this piece took a few hours of adjustment and balancing the various lines.

Recall line art is not defined as simply "outlines" but using only lines to give impact. This gets tougher the less lines you draw, as one can potentially lose the emotion of an object, lost in the outline of the factual shape..

I continue to be a huge fan of this delicate piece.

Re: grow

If you think this took over an hour, you're unrealistic. I'd say it took less than ten minutes, but I'll allow up to an hour "to perfect it".

and you disprove your own point. Line art isn't just "outlines". it's about using lines to give impact. This gives no impact, and is basically just an outline

i have "bewbies" and I would wear this in a second...in fact this is the only one I would buy.

and why does it matter how much time was spent on it

i really wanted to buy a shirt with a simple design...

i want this shirt!!

Re: Death on a Pale White UNICORN!



I agree, the artwork is absolutely stunning, the cross-hatching amazing. I'm very impressed, but I'm not into death-themed wear either, although I think this will be a very popular design.

Both did both, though Cho did the final inking of the lines.

Wouldn't a tribute to something "whom [sic] will be greatly missed here on woot" technically be a "woot reference"?

No, I think my point is quite clear. This took a few hours.

If you cannot see the impact, that is your perspective, and you are welcome to it. I disagree with you and very much appreciate the calm impact of this design.

I don't particularly like this, but judging a design based on how much time or skill it must have taken is ridiculous. A design should only be judged based on how good it looks.

Which is exactly why I'm judging this as bad. It's not bad because it's simple. It's bad and simple. I'm only harping on this taking a matter of minutes because it is sheer insanity for anyone to believe this took longer.

How do you know how much time it took? Are you the artist using an alias?

I'm pretty sure that's the cream shirt. Woot really needs to work on making their cream template look less pinkish/purplish...

I agree, the pale green on green is impossible to make out. A darker green shirt would be better.

You're absolutely right. Anything worth doing, always takes time and sacrifice. Sometimes that means working all throughout the night, every night, because it's simply what you love to do.

As i've said previously - in last week and this week, I am inspired by you. Enough to where I read through your site tutorials, looked at all of your works meticulously to find what it is that makes your work look so professional. My entries this week, are in part, dedication to what you've worked so hard to obtain.

I've thanked you before for being here, showing this derby that your eye for composition, balance, and concept is amazing and cannot be replicated. I only hope that others will try to look at what you've created and strive for the perfection that I know, you put into all your pieces.



That's exactly what I'd like to see more of in the derby. Hopefully, Cho and Jimiyo's entries this week are inspiring instead of discouraging people. They are definitely inspiring me. There's talent, there's technique, and there's experience. I'm hoping I can at least get the last two by hanging out here.

Excuse me? I didn't say a word about how look it took. Here we go again. Attributing things to me that I never said or attitudes I never took.

That was the first post on the subject I made. I didn't even say whether I liked it or didn't.
