If you bothered to check both the current entry and the past one you would notice that no 2 elements are the same, they are completly different from one another. The "style" used is called grunge. The color scheme is the same however and that is what makes you think it is the same.

Now just FYI, I know the grunge style well enough to tell you that my pieces are original. Like a fingerprint, there are no 2 alike. But thank you for your observation.

Did you bother to read the comments above this one? I kinda explained this already.

Re: The Pucker Power Trio



I have to agree with the masses and say this is by far the best and most wearable pucker yet. Maybe one day soon puckers time will come...

I was going for perspective. The appearance that the turntable was down below and further away.

am i the only one that thinks this is a cute parody of that famous old black sabbath tune? . . . . . "Has he lost his mind?
Can he see or is he blind?". that's really tommy in there!

I can understand that. I don't mean to sound arrogant. It's just that I was getting hammered for little things. I will try harder throughout..Thanks

To me, the rabbit isn't enough to make it different from Fable's version.



That derby does appear to be about 10 derbies before stellardig appeared here, though. It isn't really a surprise that he didn't know about it. It is a concern that woot hasn't rejected it though. I'm sure that Fable wouldn't be happy if other artists continue re-entering similar designs to hers that weren't printed. Same with anyone else...

I see that there is noticeable favoritism for the G Clef...but what about the subtle quarter rest? Doesn't it deserve some love also? Anyway, good luck. I would much rather seeing this concept win over the others -OK, I am a little biased to the idea behind the design

Re: Music Pirate (resub)



When I first saw this design I realized that it was a shoo-in for 1st place in this derby.

When I checked back today and noticed it had been re-submitted, I figured it was one of those cases where the artist decides to improve the design slightly based on comment feedback. I was shocked to find out that anyone would have thought the design was off-theme.

It is difficult for me to imagine someone (under 40) looking at this shirt and not immediately "getting" that it's a music pirate.

In any case, great design. It will be a pretty lame move IMO if Woot rejects it again.

Thanks for the good luck! I'm fond of your design as well, it's very well compiled to define the shape.

Our common theme, many little pieces coming together to make one common whole, is an idea I quite enjoy.

It slightly shocks me this hasn't been rejected for being too similar, I've seen shirts on here that are less similar to another shirt yet get rejected because it has a similar "artistic idea".

Notably, this one also by ramyb, rejected because it was too similar to this.

ramy's Mayflower Mayhem was clearly executed much better, but it was still rejected due to similarities.

Food for thought.

Re: AIR GUITAR



It's too big and placed too high up - the guitar neck is placed on the shoulder - for me to vote for it, but I like the overall design. I also prefer the colors in this version.

re: let go



Here's a hint, lads: we ladies LOVE a secure man.

If yellow looks good on you, wear yellow. If you like bright colors, wear them. Anyone who makes a stupid assumption based on the color of your shirt isn't worth your time anyway.

And, maybe I'm wrong, but I feel like brain-bashingly masculine shirts don't get the insinuations that they aren't worthy of woot like the borderline feminine ones do. If a feminine shirt alienates half the population, a masculine one does the same. Are women supposed to branch out and wear the bloody, gory, buggy, skully monstrosities we see around here, yet no dudes can man up to yellow?

/end gender rant.

Re: Listening



I think the center placement is way better than the off-to-the-side design you have on the gray shirt. I miss the eyelashes though! Oh well, can't make everyone happy ... still, beautiful, simple design.

This will probably get rejected for celebrity likeness, but it gave me a laugh.

The concept has been done (http://www.goapeshirts.com/products/022/) but the addition of the Millennium-Falconesque shape to the base of the guitar is a nice touch.

I reeaaaaally like this - but am a bit confused about the significance of the swirls at the top the design. Still....gmv for pure originality and skill. I love the perspective looking down the guitar neck.

Re: It's a Von Trapp!



"Fa, a long long way to run" is perhaps the stupidest song lyric in all of musical history.

But I dig the shirt, though I think the image for mi/me could be better, especially since most of the images refer to the song lyrics themselves - a person/figure pointing to himself would work better than the state (though I'd let it slide for La, because you can't really show it as 'a note to follow sol'). I'd also change the tea bag to a teacup, personally.

Fun concept.

consider the printed derby shirts.
while there are a few masculine shirts on woot, they are a huge minority.

Haha, thanks. I'm not heartbroken, I was working on an entry for another site and spent about a half hour or so on this one. I didn't expect much out of it to begin with, so having less than 30 votes is no biggie. I did expect people to get it right away, but I guess I missed the mark on that one.

Having multiple cute shirts win is fairly disappointing for me, as I generally won't buy them. When it comes to style, nobody is style locked. If you look up any information on Ramy and see the art he did before he started his anime styled art, you'd be surprised. It's actually very good and artistic. He is very capable as an artist, but it's pretty obvious he cashes in on his ability to do cute anime styled stuff. I don't see a problem with telling an artist that I'd be more inclined to buy their work if it was different. I also think comparing graphic art and illustration to music is a bit unfair, as an extremely defined style in music is what tends to make bands very successful. In art, being able to do different styles is pretty beneficial.

As for not having anything nice to say, I clearly did. Go back and reread my comment. I did say I liked the concept and coloring, but it was the cute factor that didn't work for me. I think it's sort of rude to tell people not to give their opinions just because they are unpopular.
