a happy moose giving thumbs up gives nightmares, but a 'demented' 'evil' bunny does not?

those are passive aggressive comments to me.



The bunny did, too. Never fear. I just never checked out that entry's thread.

I think this is a much prettier version. The N just didn't work for me, but this one is lovely. The colour choices are awesome.

I hope you didn't think I was being passive aggressive.

I do like it; it's a great design, hence why I'd buy it for friends.

Every account which has purchased from woot is allowed a single vote. There are legit reasons to have multiple accounts on the same computer (a family shares a computer, and the adults each have their own account to buy with), and shady reasons. Unfortunately, it's difficult to differentiate between the two. Then there are the people, like myself, who don't have extra accounts, but do have mommies who will always give us a vote (if I ask really nice and cook her dinner). I think that's a different category, though.

Uh huh. Suuuuure... Is that what they're calling those accounts now? Your mom? Very funny.

She's been a wooter longer than I have! My mom introduced me to woot. Now I stay up until 1 and tell her if she wants it in the morning. ;)

Re: Fireweed - Flower of the Yukon



For the record, this shirt probably fits the theme of 'canada' as much as any of the shirts with beavers or moose on them do.

Just sayin.

Re: On Guard For Thee.



Hey Wooters, This is my first try at this, tell me what you think. In the Canadian Anthem it has the line "O Canada, we stand on guard for thee." So i wanted to portray that in my design... Too serious? I wanted to break from the Canadian jokes

Ooooh. I think that might be why I'm so drawn to it! Thank you! I have a really old set of Narnia books from when I was a kid, and this would fit right in. Now I love it even more.

I suggested using the tattle button because that is the appropriate place for these matters. The tattle button was created to try to take the accusations of ripped off, off topic, and otherwise inappropriate from the derby thread(s), with the added bonus of allowing the woot gods to make sure they know about every little complaint. etc.



This brings up something I've had on my mind. I try to post problems I see in an entry in the thread first before I tattle. If it's simple, like "This needs to be on a shirt template" it gives the designer a way to resubmit before being rejected. Sometimes it's more complicated, like "please explain how this fits the theme", where I would really like to know what the designer had in mind.

Bottom line, I think there are times where things can be cleared up without hitting the tattle button, but it takes tact and an open mind to make that work.

You mean you just sketch in each line one at a time? That's got to be challenging. Do you use an image of a leaf (or a skull or whatever) as a guide?

mihalis aya wrote:Critique, eh? (See what I did there?)

I'd love to see a close up of the bear in your comp. I'm concerned about the apparent blending on him, but I also realize it's probably just small dots of colour. A close-up would be helpful, and possibly save you from a potential rejection. Is he a photo that has been recoloured, or original art?

I love, love the purple-blue. But I love purple low-placed designs, so take that with a grain of salt. Overall, I like the bear, but I feel like he's pretty barren on the shirt. I would like something else (a shadow? a swirly background? a few snowflakes?) to help make the design more visually appealing.

Final verdict: pretty colours, looks well done, but I'd like to see detail in your shirt comp and some extra background on the shirt itself.



Hey thanks! Thats all really good advice

i look through photos and make sketches of the parts i like
then create a simple outline and block in the highlight / shadow areas
that is my base layer

then in photoshop i shade everything in with a base coat of cross hatching
on a new layer
and keep drawing layers of lines
it usually ends up taking on a life of it's own

it can be repetitive and tedious but relaxing

Sounds like you put a lot of work into these, but clearly the results show how much it pays off.

By the way, I sent you a PM (In case you missed it... I usually don't see them either :-) with a question for you. Get back to me when you have the time.

Great idea and well executed! Does anyone know if the little words will print clearly?
