Well, the symbol replacing the 'N' is a little tiny lightning bolt. I figure it would signify power and charging sort of mode on the Switchsheep.

Hmmm, thought I posted this earlier but it's not there. Anyway, here's my second attempt at designing a shirt. Poison dart frog stoplight. Why not? Here's a larger image:



Lemme know if you like/hate it or suggest changes! Thanks for looking!

Re: Oops



So now that I have a few minutes to sit down XD
The 'clever' story behind this shirt.

I was sorting through the O-Z drawer at work while thinking about the derby, couldn't for the life of me think what was makeing me think about the derby while I was trying to file paper work, I mean...green...really...
And then I had this 'Wicked' idea... (yes you can hit be for that pun) I don't think its direct enough to be a problem... but I thought it was at least worth a laugh.

Best of luck to everyone participating!!

if/when you do, try to make it a minimalist design, and not just some carp slapped on a shirt.

Re: Yay Frendz!



@cdncarlie - sorry I missed your comment earlier. Even though "absolutely adorable" may be a cliched phrase, I don't mind hearing it at all.

@rufishinjr - I'm hoping the number of people who like the lolcat is greater than the number who are put off!

@Discobiscuits - The monster is so much larger than the girl that I felt having it closer to the side of the shirt helped it to balance. Perhaps I moved it to far to the one side, but I think it works fairly well. Centred placement is boring and overdone anyway.

@vudruliant - I think it's too feminine for me too, but I'm still happy with how it turned out. I'll be working on another version of the monster when I have time. It'll be the prequel to this scene and (probably) less feminine.

@illuminator - I'm glad you liked it!


Thanks for all the feedback so far! Please also check out Fablefire's frogs, my favourite design so far.

Or, to put it another way, if 50 out of 50 reputable graphic designers say Grow looks like a corporate logo, they're more likely to have appraised its actual value better than the 1000+ people who bought the damn thing.



Except that appraisers use what people will pay to evaluate the actual value, and they use units of money, not imaginary essence-of-art points. If purchases don't make the value, there's no point being frustrated by Grow's (or this) success, because that's all the derby goes by. If you sort the entries by real artistic value, you'll see this near the bottom. (wink)

I'll try, but no guarantees. It'll be done with a 10-15min time limit.

guaranteed win, then. Even better, people will defend it by insisting it took hours.

Definitely add leaves. People love leaves. It'll be a unique statement, too... woot's never printed any minimalist leaf designs. They haven't even printed trees.

No, this is exactly right. The armor should be gray (silver or pewter), while the shield, lance, and maybe the plume on the helmet would display the knight's named color.

gmv for sure.

Re: Yay Frendz!



A consecutively fogged entry! You picked up on the voting style right quick, e. I think I'd have to wear lots of flannel and grow a beard to wear this with my masculinity intact, but I appreciate the design. I'm more impressed with how you've progressively honed your entries to better appeal to more wooters, and your dedication to productive verbosity in the forums. If that computer engineering thing doesn't work out, you seem to have the eye and diplomacy for commercial design. Good stuff.

There's plenty of tension by the dumpster, thanks to those uppity recyclable items.

Still, such snobbery is a small price to pay for going green...

To the same degree, appraisers aren't always right. The average person might never want an item, making the appraised value low, but you could get lucky and find one dolt who loves it enough to spend 10 times what you spent originally.

On the other hand, if you have a used car that is still valued at $20,000, it doesn't mean you'll ever find anyone willing to buy it at $15,000. Value as you state it is individual. Just because it WILL sell doesn't make it good, or even worth selling. Woot's had plenty of shirts that could have sold like crazy if they'd let them print, but they axed them for not fitting their standards. If value is only about trucking in money, I'd think woot would have a much looser set of standards.

Though this is really a moot point to argue with someone who got a bestselling shirt by slapping some text over a picture and pressing "enter" a bunch of times until it formed a raven.
