Re: The Start of True Love



How cute I would imagine perhaps the puffer fish is the female since the hedgehog is offering it a flower...that's according to tradition anyway. Although my BF would probably like it if I sent him flowers.

Re: Hope Seed



i love this shirt so much! I want it! Why did it fall from the fog? Oh yeah, cause most wooters have no taste for art. I personally think that the dark on dark makes the shirt subtle. Anyone who has any sense of style WOULD stop and take a second look at this shirt. If they don't, then I don't need their attention.

Yeah, I doubt that was her inspiration. Nice picture though, reminds me of some M:tG artwork.

Re: Hope Seed



I really wanted this shirt. Really. And was so happy when I saw it in the fog. But then entirely depressed when I saw that something a lot less creative and beautiful took its place.

I'll be upset for days if this doesn't win.

Nice That's the same thing that happened with me and the Mickey Mouse shirt. I thought it was the declaration of independence for days.

It's so awesome when self-important forum people try and tell everyone how they should think, using a rumor from a one-time poster who later pulled his post.

Man, I couldn't decide which one it was on. I decided to guess creme, since I knew it was more popular. Don't like either though.
I like the light blue, the bright green, and the brown.

SailorButterfly wrote:That's a dragon, and this design in a phoenix, which is a creature known to be reborn from ash and fire. I'm not the artist, but I do know her...and I doubt she's even seen this dragon picture before. Her inspiration was simply that she loves the phoenix, so she drew what she believes its birth to look like.



Exactly why I thought it might be inspiration and did not say it was some sort of attempted copy. It is not the same animal but it had the same feel to it, with the glowing body and the rising from a mound (volcano vs pile of ashes, I get the differences). And just for the record I am well aware of what a Phoenix is (look back at derby #5 or so, I made it to the Fog with a Phoenix)

@Heartline - It would be cool as long as I got properly credited. Like if people said "Oh, man, ANOTHER Lemur? Yo, Loopy's the only one who can pull those off." L O L.

@jzlosman - That's a cool pic, but no. I perused some Phoenix images though.

@SailorButterfly - You are teh awesome.

@Cobol - Yeah, M:tG artwork has inspired me greatly. I'd like to design something in that style someday.

@Jimiyo - Thanks!!!

Agreed. I really wanted to see this shirt stay in the fog. This one's my favorite design of this derby. It'll be a shame if I don't get to have one.

Which god? It certainly doesn't follow either of the Christian Genesis myths, and I'm not familiar with any other myth that it lines up with.

hotcha wrote:How about now?

It's kinda hard to take your point that supporters of this shirt need to be open minded when you yourself seem to be broadly insulting everyone who likes it.



He has a very valid point on BOTH fronts.

To his first point: the community is predictable and easy to manipulate. Go to shirt.what.com, browse some of the past derbies, and have fun. Designs that are cutesy, feature stick figures, and incorporate elements of anime consistently fog and print. Hell, it's what wooters buy. Want a sellout? Give them what they want. Yes, these past couple of weeks, we've been getting some fairly artistic and outside the box designs, but this still largely holds true. These stereotypical "woot" designs tend to sellout more often than their anomalous, artistic counterparts.

To his second point: "Fairly mindless nostalgia pieces" isn't an insult. Furthermore, even if it was, it's not consumer-based. What this is saying is that there isn't a lot of creative thought needed when you're plastering a game controller on a shirt or making a shirt look like a gameboy. Yes, there are ways to have nostalgic pieces not be mindless, which he acknowledged in the rest of the sentence that you strangely didn't feel the need to quote. Would I rank this shirt in that category? Probably not, but I love the shirt and will buy one, because it is GOING to print.

I mean, if you feel insulted by either of those, fine. But looking at them objectively, they are both observations of two very real things around these parts.

As for the great shirt debate: Did anyone actually WATCH the cartoon clip? Distressed or not, these baby turtles look NOTHING like those baby turtles. More importantly, the cartoon had HOT PINK/PURPLE ooze coming out of a sewer pipe and the turtles were covered in it with a large puddle on the floor. Not even close to a shattered test tube. Yes, I'm aware that the scene in the movie is a LOT more similar, but then use THAT to make a point. It's the best example, barring the comics because I haven't had the privilege of seeing the turtles' origin in comic form.

Not sure. I googled "greater than AND underscore AND shirt", but did not come up with anything...
Maybe I'm not doing it right.

While I don't see the resemblance to Bin Laden, it does look more like a desert nomad of the Near East than a ninja of the Far East.
