Fair enough - I'm satisfied that you were making a reasonable generalization. Sorry for personalizing. The truth is that your conclusion is spot on -
in general, i do agree with your critique of the derbies (i just think there's a bit more in this one case, as i've argued). In 4 years of watching every derby i've seen maybe 10 shirts that i'd pay for? Pretty scarce.

Re: from every end



I really like this illustration & the background color + white for the tree stump combination. Do you have a higher resolution image of the illustration itself? If not, that's ok - I was jut curious.

Thanks!

Wow you must be an expert on shirts! 4 years of watching every derby huh? A true connoisseur! Too bad the derby's only been around since summer of '07. Not only do you make no sense in your arguments you come up with bald face lies as well. Hilarious.

Now then, how to backtrack out of that statement like the one against the Duck Hunt shirt being a problem because of the way it handled a cultural reference...

Cool design! I've never seen a frame with the mesh wrapped that far around the frame before.

This is my favorite one! I love this idea, you executed this perfectly. Nice work on the texture and colors... something about this still captures the compassion of the original. Nice design!

Re: The Journey Begins



I'd vote for you, but a few things need to be fixed. I hate it when the shirts look like a big block printed on a shirt, instead of blending in. For example, the rays coming off the sun, why not make them fade into the shirt. Either by making them lighter, or by making them turn into dissipating dots. Same goes for the rest of it.

As a backpacker myself, this shirt is awesome.

I made my screen with some left over wood that i had laying around and I picked up the mesh from Jo'anns. All in all it was home made. My 1st one I every made. It worked for about 10 shirts then it was junk. I must of did something wrong? Oh well it was fun making it, a lot of work and messy, but fun to build. stellardig

Mickey was born a train from NY to LA.

Uncle Walt was the original voice actor but his habitual smoking lowered his pitch.

And Mickey's also exactly 62 years older than me.


I'm an avid Disney buff Quite proud to be one too, no matter what anyone says.
My username translates to "The second star," in reference to "The Second Star to the Right" from Disney's '53 adaptation of Barrie's novel. (Yes, that's nice, ladeuxiemeetoile.) yeah, k bye.

fofmock wrote:This is my individual take on the game Frogger, the arcade original that became a well known legend of street and river crossing. Frogger was the beginning of (according to Wikipedia) 17 remakes and upgrades, one of the most prominent arcades. Listed as one of the top 10 games, this is where enjoyment from video games was born.

PS- for anyone that feels like being technical, the sizes are based on a Frogger scale, so the frog is 1/3 the size of a log, or alligator. I don't care to hear people trying to sound smart and telling me the frog is too big :P

Thanks for any votes in advance! Hope you all like it!



I always thought frogs kicked ass ;-)

although the colors were all different in the game version I remember,
it's well thought out, and I would buy one if it won

Hmmm...this is peaking my super sleuth curiosity quite a bit. Hah, I'm joking of course(about the super sleuth part anyway..I'm more of a wannabe-amateur sleuth). I'm *definitely* curious about all this drama though. Especially after realizing I knew one of these guys from Deviantart.

One reason for upping post count:

When you see a name with many posts (and a colored square) you usually wouldn't think to suspect that name as being a 'fake' account.

Hence, more posts mean more authentic? Perhaps? I would think if you were going to try and rig a derby that having many names, each with many posts, would seem less suspicious in case anyone tried checking up on it. Then you'd have extra votes *and* a name where you could pretend to be your own fan/defender.

Of course, this is all just speculation..

Ahh, but one would have to be quite foolish not to realize that the forum regulars would notice all the spam posts. No, if I were to make fake accounts, I would create a bunch and then let them sit and age. If I were to post with one or two, I would pass them off as lurkers, for the most part. Of course, I would keep most of them under wraps.

Hmm... given the incredible winning streak these last few weeks, I'd say it's a reasonable assumption that, if we are in the midst of some grand conspiracy, that it must have been quite some time in the making. Maybe even a year's planning has gone into this. I wouldn't be surprised if the fake accounts were created way back in December of 2007, posting with a "talky" account only once or twice a week.

Wait a second... the puzzle pieces are all coming together... it all makes sense now...

What's the best way to ensure you aren't viewed as part of a conspiracy? To propogate that conspiracy! Who would suspect "someone" of being a user's puppet account when that "person" is setting forth theories AGAINST said user? And look at your account info - signed up just over a year ago, and with that number of posts you average 1-2 posts a week. It all fits. Therefore, I call you out, "marzipanapple". But that's not your real name, is it? You're one of them, aren't you? AREN'T YOU?

Bwahaha, I've seen through your ruse! I've hit the bulls-eye, and now the rest of the dominoes will fall like a house of cards. Checkmate!

And haishasan was the catalyst to cracking this case. Clearly haisha is a masked vigilante, intent on unleashing vengeance on the criminally-inclined. And like so many dashing heroes, haisha used unconventional methods to bring about justice before disappearing, true identity unknown.

no one cool would ever wear this shirt. on that same point, if a cool person did wear this, they would instantly become a gooey zit faced supergeek. planet shirts are now just as nylon as wolf shirts.

Once again, the voters of woot (Original content not provided.) and select a "artsy" shirt with a dumb and overused subject like Phoenix that looks absolutely stupid wearing around in real life, but fails to vote in a genius idea that is well executed AND makes sense for if you're an artist.

Same goes for Big Words.



An addendum - if it goes to a competition site, please oh please let us know. A shameless plug, be it in the derby thread or just in your signature, would be handy. I just found Big Words over on Threadless, too late to add my $5.
