This certainly deserves to be printed!!

Re: Art Deco Hell Train



Unquestionably your best work in a long time. Maybe a little boxy and flat at the bottom, but overall quite solid.

Re: The Wings of Ra a la' Deco...



Beautiful colors! They enhance the image nicely.

BTW... I saw your name as artist on a G1 App - That IS you, isn't it?

Re: Abstract Deco Theater Front



So this is my first derby entry ever. I've been a woot lurker for quite a long time - thought I'd give it a go and get a feel for the whole "submitting an entry" thing. Look forward to participating in more!

Love the design, a little big, but still great.

Re: Seahorses



I like the seahorses a lot. I do not care for the gray designs behind them, though.

But I did vote. I REALLY like the seahorses.

Re: Art Deco - Chess



Nice! One of the few designs that are ACTUALLY art deco!

Make sure to submit the design detail at 580x580 otherwise woot automatically resizes the image down to fit, causing artifacting/blurring.

bags bags bags bags bags. bags.
thanks for the support of "Sounds like Treble"!

you see here at woot, the prevailing designers at any given time are not required to follow rules to secure a win. it has always been this way. and by looking at the reckoning list, you will find that this particular artist is the current designer exempt from any and all rules pertinent to a derby. dont blame the designer for flaunting the rules more and more obviously each week. blame woot for not caring. once mermaid man and barnacle boy fall from grace, another will take their place and do precisely the same thing.
i hope this has cleared up any confusion for you.



Kdeuce is even back this week

It'll be like "war of the twits who know nothing about art and somehow win dramatically every time"

Take the comment I made on your other entry and apply it to this one instead, please.

Re: ...is that a mouse?



The cat is not paying attention. The mouse is alert, and may escape.

(I felt that this design needed more Art Deco influence than just the cat, so I added a fireplace screen.) I hope it is better.

Considering that 90% of the entries here are from complete amateurs (myself included obviously), you would expect to see some entries finish in the fog that are less than professional. It is refreshing to see someone other than the same small group of people have a chance at winning every once in a while.

There is "less than professional" and then there is "three seconds in MS Paint".

This is an amateur contest. That doesn't mean something that embrangles should win. You can be "amateur" and still do good work. This isn't the special olympics. Not everyone should get a medal just because they don't have one yet.

bwahaha! Oh my, I see it

I plan on spending more time on the derbies in the future. This was sort of my first "get my feet wet and figure out the submission process" thing.

Re: Day Dreaming



The foreground and background look jarringly different to me, and the background reminds me of this: http://www.fabulousmasterpieces.co.uk/userimages/Art_Deco_Art.jpg

How is the shading done on the figure?

I liked the original gray comp better, but this one gives me the urge to goto Denny's. Nothing is better than breakfast for dinner.

One of my initial ideas was to do a zeppelin. I am glad I didn't, because yours looks so much better than mine would have.

Re: Just Past Midnight



This is really really really beautiful. Quite impressive!! I only worry that the image is too large and/or too close to the seams.

Also, your thumbnail does NOT do this image justice! I wonder if people are just not clicking on it.

What's even sadder is that when Ramyb first posted this design, everyone said it had nothing to do with art-deco yet of course he wouldn't have changed anything because that would require actual work.



That's because they still voted, despite posting that it didn't follow the theme. :/

It's a great-looking design, but it not following the theme is frustrating.

Either way, I'm liking this one.



It actually is that building. I saw a picture of it, like the perspective and redrew it. Found a pic of a 1930's Cadillac and redrew that as well. The moon isn't real though. At least I don't think it is.

Re: Decobot Discovers Love



Looks like he's holding "himself".

And all I can say is "congratulations" for him,
but unfortunately I won't wear a shirt promoting robotic self love. That's the first step towards "the uprising".

Re: Construct



Ramyb,
I'm not sure what you've done to the people of woot, but I would imagine your back is killing you from all the knives that have to be sticking out of it. I am just a lowly peon who purchases woot shirts, I cannot even begin to imagine how to design a shirt...so I wouldn't presume to dictate to others how they design theirs. That being said, I like your designs, obviously a considerable amount of the public likes your designs and the last I checked that's what this site was about. I sincerly hope that you will ignore the acrimonious remarks by your fellow wooters (who are supposed to be adults, and should act accordingly I might add), and continue submitting your shirts....simply my two cents. That being said...I didn't vote for your entry...I like the bunny, LOL!

I completely agree. I read these boards every week, and it's amazing to me that people can get so hateful over a bunch of tshirts. It's like a group of sixth grade girls squabbling over a boy, sickening and tiresome. Maybe if they spent less time being jealous of someone else's success, and more time on their own designs, assuming they have any, they'd win occasionally, too.
