I can't vote for this since it is off-topic. No one looking at this on a shirt would immediately think, "Greed! What a fantastic representation of greed!" l ol Besides, aliens are right up there with pirates and ninjas.

Now that you were so kind as to point out the pig hugging money, I've given my vote to that one instead. Voting helped clear that confusion right up. Any other art you'd like for me to not give my vote to?


You're not very nice, are you?
I think its more important to be a good design than obviously about a topic. I dont buy shirts that portray a theme. I buy shirts that look good that portrayed a theme enough so that woot would print them, l o l
p.s. man, do I hate these woot filters!

Thanks for the vote! I really couldn't come up with anything "special" this week. The theme was hard enough as it is. There's more to come....stay tuned.

I don't like the colors, don't like the theme, and don't believe it's something I'd wear without feeling really out of place. It's a perfect shirt for children, but not for any self-respecting adult IMO.



It's not the message, it's the messenger. You have made it clear that you will throw mud at anything Cho submits, so it's hard to tell when you are just whining or if you have a legitimate comment. Your previous comments were so venomous that woot deleted them. This one is being left up so we can laugh at you.

Re: Gaia Grecko



In general, people don't vote for things they think will get rejected. I think this will be rejected for not being on theme.

It also appears to have too many colors (2 greens, 2 browns, black, white, orange).

In the future I'll probably continue to do this with entries I really like because I tend to send progress shots back and forth with a couple people anyway. Although I tend to dislike my designs after looking at them for so long. Hee. Anyway, glad you read it and stuff. ^_^

In the future if you're ever curious about my work please ask and I'll post the process, depending on what I have saved. Most of my work is loosely based off of some photo I take (often it's just me in a mirror posing or holding stuff so I can get the shape I want). This time, like I said, it came out of nowhere.


Actually, ‘guys’ would have worked better for me....

I like to see design process too, especially when there’s something that can be learned. It’s interesting to me that you ink right on the lined paper. I’ve tried sketching/drawing in pencil and inking on tracing paper, and that all worked, but then I’d spend forever cleaning up artifacts from the scanner. Do you have the same troubles? Maybe I should try lined paper. ;-)

Anyhow, your dragon’s very cool, as are the colors used. And even knowing the coins are copies of a smaller group, I still can’t pick it. Very cool.

what planet did you claim for yourself that you think this is comparable?
wow i guess that means all those dragons should be disqualified since other people have put a dragon on a shirt before huh?



hey chill, he never said it should be disqualified. as far as i can tell he only said "lol cool my friend wants a similar shirt, if this one gets printed i might suggest it to him instead"

Re: Mine



There's no text this week...so if that sign says "Mine" like it looks like it does, then this will get rejected. See if you can create a design that conveys the idea without text.

I did not know there were two Adders, but I take comfort in knowing the other one agrees that this shirt is not only off topic, but pretty much ludicrous in light of woot printing an anthropomorphic candy corn shirt once before. Congrats, other Adder. Sorry this guy already doesn't like you.

If it was rejected for being off topic once, it will be rejected for being off topic again and will make the Woot gods (Joel) angry.

If this loses to the frickin' penguin shirt, I will know that the votes are cooked. I can't even see it losing to globe hugger.

i will be nice to you since not everyone is nice to the newer crowd.
that isnt what he was saying.
spend a little time reading the hate for a while before you pick a side dear.
if the name cho is on something you are forced to love it or hate it. period. because the brilliant folk in woot say so.
some things cho makes are great and some kinda suck, but NOBODY in here comments that way. get used to the way it works m'kay?
