hey, as long as you're having fun! I don't think anyone minds (or if very many even notice)... and I do believe you'll get the popular award from that sds site. congrats! hahaha :-D
[EDIT] oops, I guess popular is for something else... maybe most comments. At least you're not getting the reject king award, right?

Hmm, just went in for 3 Randoms, when I haven't bought any shirts lately (although still checking frequently) so what are the chances of liking them!?! Oh well, couldn't pass up the mystery!
...a number of shirts on teetrade.com

Re: 1977: 2600: A Video Game Odyssey



I love 2001: A Space Odyssey. I remember a few years ago it was playing at a local theater that showed old movies, and remember there being 20-25 nuns in the audience watching. My friend and I were surprised because of the Darwin-type- kind of message, but hey cool to see they enjoyed it! The game reminds me of many days during Christmas vacation playing the heck out of this thing! My youngest brother still has the system. He even has the old Pong monitor type thing that we played when I was a kid. Sheesh, I feel old. :o(

Thanks,

At least I had fun doing it, and learned a lot about layering - finally. I've become addicted to Woot and looking at the T-shirt designs. It is
interesting to see what is popular.

If you saw what was in the fog would you really want to be a part of it?

Re: 1979: SOMETHING GOES WRONG



Great idea. I love the animal silhouettes. I'd like to see the shirt more integrated. Right now it feels like two shirts. Maybe the animal silhouettes wandering about with the large glowing nuclear plant in the background.

Woot needs to make cojones.woot.com, for all the users who don't have the orbs to post criticism on their own names. Call me crazy, but i find it hard to believe someone new to woot would make an account on a site simply to immediately troll the design boards, especially without having found anything to purchase.

Sad, as the Atari 2600 is the console that started it all. Guessing more wooters are 80's babies from the derby standings. I still remember getting this on Xmas. The monkeys remind me of myself and my 3 brothers as we opened the box with wonder and awe. Great use of the T-shirt color and I really like the 2001 reference.

This is a great stat against your point. Name one other designers who has 4:3 ratio of non-printed desings to printed ones.
I'm not assuming anything with this point other than to invalidate yours.

You are misunderstanding the stat. The stat wasn't a comment on total entries, only high placing entries (entries in top 10).

LeetRantipole wrote:What about it do you think makes it a bad design for a shirt? I'm not seeing that.



Well, I'm not really an expert on shirt design, I just have never really been a fan of the "pencil art" style on shirts. It looks amazing on the screen, I cannot stress that enough, but I have never seen a pencil art shirt come out that looked that great. It's the "on screen" vs "on shirt" debate HGP is dealing with right now.

I don't really have any suggestions, because I'm not very good at designing shirts, I just don't know how well this would turn out on cream. It might be a bit hard to see once it is printed.

It is real bad when it does not look amazing on screen. I do not have an artistic bone in my body and I can easily draw this picture. When something that I can do is in first place then that means fire and brimstone from the sky, dogs and cats living together....mass hysteria.

hmm. good luck.



It might be copyrighted, but the gun that the duck is holding is not the same as the actual light gun - the only real similarity is the colour. Someone posted a photo of the light gun earlier - take a look and compare. The design is quite different. =)

yeah but the colors dont match anything too well, i tried blues and it was so gaudy, i tried red, but too much emphasis on ussr/russia, (yellow on red was picked for the flag already)

ducks killed my whole family. i am the last of my lineage.

they are pure evil. i think an innate human ability to be able to sense evil. i think thats why the duck disturbs you.

Re: 1960 Artificial Heart research



In 1960 the first successful intracardiac prosthetic valve operations are conducted by Albert Star of Portland Oregon. This research led to the development of the first artificial heart in 1982. The patient lived 112 days....then died. He probably couldn't find an outlet. This is an actual photograph of that heart.

Re: 1998 - The moon



Look, I know I'm going to catch a lot of flack for daring to criticize a child's entry, but there should not be child's entries in the derby. It's the biggest black eye woot has as a contest... what legit designer would find woot, look at the derby, and consider it worth designing for if they found a shirt designed by a ten year old (which looks like it was designed by a ten year old) in the hotness? What does it say about the voters reliability if a kid's entry looks does well enough to be legitimately included over at Best Losers? What does a parent say when their ten year old kid starts getting the sort of critiques that wooters tend to give, and comes running over crying? For all the silly censors, for all the designs people insist are for babies, this is not a kids' site, and it certainly isn't a kids' design site. Which is to say nothing of the 40-something people not related to the kid who voted for it. This isn't "encourage people central." This is a shirt contest. You think you're making a kid feel good, but all you're really doing is making a strong case against your competence to be allowed to choose printable shirts.
