WOW, I really LOVE this shirt. Lately I've become a little disinterested in the typical large centered design-type shirts. How cool that this is left justified, appropriately placed atop of the heart.

Beautiful

Re: ski lodge




I don't do the forums much anymore (more a lurker now) but I logged in, JUST to vote for this shirt.

This kind of artwork is amazing and should be encouraged! Keep up the good work

Don't be sexist. Broads hate that.

Sigh. Yes, apparently it does.

No offense, it's cute and all, but I begin to see Adder's point.

This is a really sweet design! I love the textures on the tree; it manages to be funny and artsy at the same time. :O

Re: He Tried To Play it Cool (Derek Version)



I'm afraid with shirts like this and Boot's mine will never make it anywhere near the top. Your concept is similar and your art is in a more detailed style that wooters seem to love. I dig it in spite of my envy.

thank you! I really need to learn how to use Photoshop or something like that... This was just hand-drawn, scanned, and filled on Paint (painstakingly almost pixel-by-pixel... *sigh* old school, haha). I just need to find some time to get to play around some more on the higher-end programs.

Re: Snow Hu-Man



Wasn't there something like this made into a Woot shirt not too long ago? like... snowman, but without the actual body? I think it was like just a scarf and buttons on a white shirt or something. Sorry!

Ice dragons are Winter creatures. Get over yourselves and stop trying to act like you know everything. The design is beautiful *and* it fits the theme. Don't get a hard-on just because you're tired of dragon/phoenix designs. Cast your vote and shut the hell up.



My criticism is simply that it *looks* like fire.

Derek and Boots did a collab, which is why the two are so similar. Yours was submitted a full day later...

I think it has to do with the use of the trees.
As in using a tree as the entire subject of a design without doing anything with it is boring. (i.e. artsy, nature shirts suck)
But here, the trees are personified and are involved in situation.

Nah, seriously, the thing that will keep me from buying this is the colour issues I mentioned earlier. I don't have as much confidence in woot's printing as you do. I think it's a great design though.

I've been a designer for years and this is one of the greatest shirt designs I've seen in years. What you were able to do with the use of subtle hints of character endowment totally blows my mind.

Adorable. Hope you resubmit, though I don't really wear light shirts, I love the design.

Almost looks like the fruit of the loom logo, too.

This is really well done Captoct. You'll invariably get blowback for using an octopus, but the design is solid and HMV.

Once I thought someone told me that people outside of California don't use chains, because they all have 4-wheel drive and snow tires. This is false?

At any rate, as a Californian, this shirt is still relevant to me. ;D

It is, as with anything, a matter of how the tree is used and designed. You can see how this is not your average tree shirt, right?

The footprints do seem excessive, and the snow sticks out too much. It would look much better blended into the shirt.

Adder's point seems to always be 'cute anime designs always do well with the voters, but i think they're dumb, so blame the artists and accuse them of cheating', so I don't see his point.

Perhaps it gets tedious seeing cutesy designs over and over and over, but shirt.woot is decided by votes. What can you do?

Besides snark about it in the comments, that is...

I think this shirt is adorable, Seki & Ramyb. Very cute. Not sure why a rabbit is trying to be a penguin though. :}
