Re: Sunshine



I wish I could vote multiple times. This shirt is gorgeous. Normally I think arty shirts are pointless (I'd rather a good pun), but this one is just so beautiful, I have to retract.

I hope this wins. In any case, thanks for making such a pretty design.

Like the design, just not so much on blue. I'll vote, but would buy in a different color, good job though.

Re: Flying Aces



I personally would disagree and say the animals take a bit away. Alot of realism going on in this shirt, and then there are animals in flight gear. Everything else deserves a job well done.

Re: Streamline



You went traditional Deco on this bad boy! I dig it though StellarDig! Maybe a Version 2 in the future? Different color scheme maybe? Come on whatcha got? Your holding something back I know it!

that being said, i still like the design, and i love the little (i am assuming girl) eskimo comming home that has a heart over [her] head. GMV



Part of the reason for this is that the Third Reich's rise to power, and subsequent building spree, was in the 30's, when deco was a dominant architectural style. No one else was building much besides Hitler due to that depression they had going on.

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



I think your design is wonderful... there was tons of Art Deco inspired by Ancient Egypt and just to say, Deco was eclectic... inspiration was drawn from all sorts of subjects and art and, you nailed it!

Re: Construct



ramyb this design is VERY VERY good!

Im very curious how you made it, as Ive been learning illustrator and trying to make gears ^_^

Though I do sorta agree with some other wooters that this didnt scream "art deco" to me, at least not in the 1920-1930's sense, I shall give it my vote, because I would still wear it.

We like funny shirts, and this qualifies. Perhaps that's because it's a parody, but as long as the art elements are there, why is this a problem?

Hello. I really appreciate the design but agree, the centering is problematic. It has to be off to the side, for obvious reasons. Good luck.

Re: Construct



If Woot wants to discourage cleverness and creativity by not rejecting this mundane, rule-breaking piece, then they can reap what they have sown when people naturally follow in Ramyb's foot steps and violate every theme to whatever extent is possible in order to adhere to the basic principles of "successful" shirt making. If Woot thinks their site will survive falling into a repetitive, forgettable pattern of production than that is their business decision, and we will have to see what happens. But ultimately, sad as it is, the responsibility falls on Woot to police things.

They have made their position clear by not rejecting this shirt.

Woot reaps a lot of money off this hack. They're in no mood to start quality-controlling any time soon. when the good stuff makes it, it undersells, especially lately.

Re: Morning Stretch



I am really behind this week (had people to see, things to do... or you can reverse that XP )

ANYHOW...

My inspiration was from a few things. I had been watching a documentary about giraffes recently so they were fresh in my mind upon the start of this theme. I have seen a few rather organic Art Deco sculptures from the 1920's era that had very clean, smooth lines, and I wanted to echo that look in the form of the giraffe. Since that it was too simple on it's own, I added a bit of that rather mathematic, precise Art Deco work as well and created the sunburst and sun trail which creeps up to the giraffe, just waking up in the early morning light. Finally, the color palette changed a few times, but it originated from a 1920's interior paint palette. Purples and teals were HUGE in the 1920's and I really wanted to bring that out in the design. So, with the four color colors (and using the black shirt) The teal blue and purple are used to show a shadowed side of the giraffe as the gold and red of the sun squeak over the edge of the grasslands.
If anyone is wondering why the circles instead of the intricate pattern of a traditional giraffe, I felt the circles echoed the circular feel from the sun and, with some suggestion, the outline seems to hint at the varying pattern of a giraffe without making the whole piece too busy.

Here is a detailed view. Thank you for any of your votes.

Designs can win if they are posted late, but the earlier is better. There are alot of people who vote on over the weekend, that never bother to vote later in the week. This weeks derby has been really slow, so I am sure anything can happen.

This might end up falling into more of the "80s modern" like this one:

Or maybe it's just he color scheme?

This. I can not vote for a design, no matter how nice it looks, if it does not fit in the derby for the week. This is another one of those times. Good luck anyway.

I almost feel that it could use some maroon highlights... That's probably just me, though.

Re: The Rabbit's Weird Dream



I hate that every week, you'll be in the top of the fog the entire first day, then get knocked out by Monday or Tuesday and place 6th or 7th. You do some great shirts and I'd love to see you get some more prints.

You can ride with me, or you can find your own path. Don't stab me in the back after I've cleared the way.

Yeah, I saw that after I spent three days working on mine... there are some differences between the two that I hope draw the line... like there's is at an angle, whereas most 'art deco landscapes' are drawn from the front, with like the view point angles different? yeah, the colors though... if it gets rejected I'm going to take out the two side things, round out the stereo a bit, and change the colors. If it's not deco, it's at least getting closer.
