Re: BE THE LEGEND!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



I'd vote for it, but the cut-off point really kills the design. Sorry :\

And who are you fHalcyon? Are you eHalcyon? A wannabe? I'm confused.



f is not me. Someone along the lines of the Adder impersonator, I guess. There's also a cHalcyon out there. I don't know why people would want to use my name, but it's an honour, sort of.


I really like this Mr. Gentry. The only thing that could make this better would be a golden goose in his arms. You've gmv anyway though. I'm still undecided but I've been waiting for my first olive tee...

Re: Fee! Fie! Foe! Fum!



I love this design. I think it works as a costume (and I got the concept right away, even without the title), but you could also wear it just as a cool shirt. I don't particularly love the idea of "holiday" designs that I can only wear once a year, and I would totally wear this shirt on a normal day. Great work, tgentry!

ROFL!! I was going to vote anyway - the mouse on the pendulum got me! But this explanation just finishes selling it! Heheh.

What, like human hands? That would be scary.

Great idea, great design. That's a pretty wonderful mouse.

Re: I Am Phelps



Good job. I tried to make almost this same shirt and gave up. Also smart move with the three rings, apparently any combination of five rings is copyrighted. Olympic jerk lawyers.

Re: Fresh from the Shower




I should probably get in the shower after trying for hours to figure out how you guys do this every week.

Ok, so I'm very new at this and I would appreciate any constructive criticism. I'd really like to learn how to do this the right way. I know my first problem is I don't have the proper software and I will work that out within the next week or so. If there is a site that anyone knows of that could give me some direction, I would love that.

Thanks in advance,
Whateva

Re: Stars Upon Thars



I designed this shirt based on the great Dr. Seuss poem, "The Sneetches."

To quote:

Now the Star-bellied Sneetches had bellies with stars.
The Plain-bellied Sneetches had none upon thars.
The stars weren't so big; they were really quite small.
You would think such a thing wouldn't matter at all.

I'm not sure this is "incidental" text. This is more like "central theme" text.

Anyway, I'm not one to tattle -- I don't think there should be ANY restrictions, EVER, as I have mentioned in the forums.

i just cant stop thinking about the HUGE ammount of ink right where it wont uh "fit well" over a woman.
i feel kinda like derek and gentry that its strangely endearing, but ive a nagging suspicion it will be rejected anyway.

Re: I Am Phelps





this could only be better if not restricted by woots printing rules.
so many of these designs are made l ame by not being able to print around the neck

This is adorable. It's too bad woot can't print right below the collar, because a little bow tie would absolutely put this over the top.

I like your idea, but it's gonna get rejected for being outside the printable area. I'm sort of new here, too, and I don't know exactly how close you can get to the edges of the shirt, but I think you're safe if you imagine about 2 1/2 inches from the sides, bottom, and bottom of collar. Your maximum area is 16"x20", so you can hold a ruler up to an actual t-shirt to get an idea of your printable area.

Also, your 600x600 shirt comp is supposed to be the one that shows the image on a t-shirt outline. I think you got it swapped with the 240x240 design detail.

As for software, Inkscape and Gimp are both freeware and perfectly adequate for doing designs. You can google them to find the download sites right away. The forums for those programs have lots of tutorials on how to use them.

This is only my third week doing this, so I haven't settled into a regular process yet. I started by drawing my design on paper, then scanning it, then tracing it with my drawing tablet in Gimp. Now I just sketch it on the computer with the tablet from the beginning. It's much easier to shift a digital drawing around to get the layout you want before tracing over it in neat lines.

I use the caligraphy tool in Inkscape to do my drawing and coloring, because I have a dated computer, and Inkscape runs much faster than Gimp at high resolutions. As a last step, I use Gimp to do detailed touch-up and separate the colors into layers.

thanks for all the info. I guess I didn't read all of the submission information. Okay I'll take all those things into consideration for one of the upcoming derbies.

I have a tablet and I have dogwaffle software. I'm just learning how to use it. I'll probably have to try a few different apps before I decide what I am comfortable using.

Thanks again,
kim

Re: Pirate Spokesman



After reading about the Somali pirate spokesman speaking with the AP, I thought, "Wow! I never knew that was a job!" I don't think that is an option on high school career placement tests, but now everyone can be an "official pirate spokesman".

Add an eyepatch and a bandana if you want to go all out on Halloween!
