Re: Mondrianesque



I am bummed that this shirt isn't doing better. I think that many of the submissions for this derby, although interesting, really wouldn't be appealing for me to wear because I would be wearing shirt with a pixelated design, which I wouldn't want. However, this shirt, using the same constraints, doesn't look pixelated because of the style you chose. And the point of inspiration you used is also great. I hope you get an up-swing at the end of the voting!

Heheheh... sweet. This is something where the edges of the lines would be square for sure. I never could get really good curves out of an Etch-a-Sketch. :-)

Re: Victor-Oscar-Tango-Echo



What do you get when you mix Victor, Oscar, Tango, and Echo? This shirt design subliminally requesting you to V-O-T-E now and in November. My last entry was rejected due to the WOOT reference, so here's one of the backups. International code flags, signaling flags, alphabet flags. Whatever the name, the mariner's flag code has been around a very long time. Whether to tell a neighboring ship "man overboard" or "I am seriously damaged" (that one applies to me I think), the code has been used by sailors for centuries to relay messages at sea. And now, hopefully, you too can relay this coded message to fellow woot enthusiasts as you stroll the streets with old salts and land lubbers alike. Many an eye patch will be lifted and cap tipped as you meander through the masses wearing this baby blue treasure. And ladies on the prowl will especially love the attention paid them while cruising the docks and shipyards. Rest assured, sailors will salute your fine taste in coded 6-color pixelated t-shirts that send all the right signals...All right, I'm way ahead of myself here. I do think it would be kind of cool to see a fellow woot-an clan member out and about wearing this, a nod and a wink exchanged. I'm pretty new to this but now thoroughly hooked. Hope you like this one. I look forward to feedback, comments, critiques, and, of course, some votes if you like it.

Re: Victor-Oscar-Tango-Echo



I think I see more than six colours when you count the pixel line colour between the red and yellow in the upper right; I could be wrong though ;-)

I see red, white, blue and yellow for the main colours, plus a pink and an orange for the anti-aliasing. Six, on the nose.

earthart, I think you have a great idea with these flags. However, instead of the blocky format you have now, I would suggest putting the flags in a line, either horizontal across the chest or vertical down a side. Also, I see that you've submitted multiple designs with the flags. I think it would be better for you if you chose one message and stuck with it. V-O-T-E is probably a weaker one - it's bordering on a woot reference. It could be a political message, but then it wouldn't make sense to obscure it, and you'd have to write in a candidate for it to make sense anyway.

Anyway, submitting so many similar designs may end up splitting your vote in a manner akin to submitting the same design on different shirt colours.

So, I'd suggest removing all but one of your flag designs, and maybe changing the composition around. Good luck!

Very nice. To me the highlights look like snow...I wonder how it would look on baby blue or, although I have reservations about heather, heather.

Re: Shadow Skull



I'd really be interested to know how you did this with the constraints - did you find a photo and trace it, or pixellate it and adjust the result to be six colors? Hope I'm not overstepping my bounds by asking, but I'm intrigued.

It's also worth noting that when woot says no text, they mean it. They have, in the past, axed shirts with sign language and asian word-symbols (I'd just say Kanji, but I don't think that's the term for ALL countries, is it?), so semaphore is a likely candidate for the text axe as well.

That's a shame - is it a copyright problem?
I think this is my favorite design of the derby - it works with the constraints beautifully.

Because I personally like the color blue, if I chose black, many of the monsters would work and a few people would whine about how it's "summer and I don't want to wear dark colors" and greens or browns may hide monsters as well. And no one really likes white. I'll resub on another color if you'd rather vote for that though =P



I would like that design on yellow, light yellow or cream! what do you think?
