Whenever I think of wind up toys, I picture the key being in the back. Plus I haven't seen many designs meant for the back of shirts yet. Otherwise, I like the idea.

That was my exact idea origianlly. To have to wind-up key on the back like a to. I will put up a Back placement entry in a little bit. Thanks for the comment.

This is adorable and I'm ignoring every other guppy-tastic comment here. People can dislike it, but they take this stuff too seriously. It's just a damn t-shirt after all.

Also, I don't think the dog should be changed to a robot or anything else, that would change the whole idea, and would then not be clever. A robot playing with a robot dog is a laem idea.

I am keeping my fingers crossed for this one since the wombat is my favorite animal!

Re: I. Steam Punk. (back placement)



This is the same as a previous entry, except with the placement moved to the back of the shirt. Yes... I went there.

Exactly right. Also, the original gameboy was a light gray color with darker gray accents, so I was trying to pay homage to that a bit, too. Glad you like it!

Ha. Boots has been quite a doll to me actually. :-) Though I still don't seem to be able to concept something that'll swing.

Awesome. I like back of shirt entries when they are appropriate, and this one definitely fits the bill.

Re: Steam Shuttle



Trivia: What is the exhaust that comes out of the shuttle? Steam! or at least a good portion of it. Hydrogen and oxygen are major components of the fuel and combine during take off to form water.

And why do I see entries that include colors not in the specifications? Are the colors for Illustrator different than those for Photoshop?



White and black really do count, anything that has to be applied on the shirt with ink counts as a color.

For your other question, the colors specified in the submission guidelines are only for the background color- the color of the t-shirt itself. For the ink colors, they can match pretty much any color, but the real pros (not me) match the color themselves with pantone colors. Search for a color chart you can use on the Net.

One more suggestion, check out the top ranked shirts and see how they incorporate their design into the background to really show off the details of their work. I don't think a shirt has won in a long time- if ever - that only showed the shirt with the design on it.

Just suggestions, take them with a grain of salt because the best I have done is 14th place.

Good luck.

Re: The Girl in Red



Seki, this is amazing. I'm in agreement that this is one of your best designs here at Woot I've seen. It looks like you stepped out of your comfort zone a bit; the results for doing that here look like they will pay off. With how the Red Riding images do "pop" up in pop culture (Angela Carter's literature, Anne Sexton poetry, movies like "The Howling," etc.) this is really neat take. To sum it all up, "Wow."

I think it's a great concept, and I like that you didn't make the lines super clean, gave it even more of that handmade steampunk look.

Alright, so here we go...the robot is removing the streamlined, clean outer shell to reveal his true gritty self. Feel free to parlay that into man's plight to resist conforming to society's standards for beauty...or whatever. Hope that helps

Oh...my....gosh.....I hadn't even thought of that! What a fantastic idea! I don't think this design has a remote shot at winning the derby amongst all of the other great pieces this week, but if it did, I think replacing the yellow with glow ink would be just the thing!

Great call, and thanks for the support guys!

I appear to be in the minority here, but this design doesn't remind me of Grim Optimism. I didn't think of the similarity until it was mentioned in this thread.

Is it laid out similarly? Yes. (It is from the same artist, after all.)

Is the feel the same? Not to me.

I found Grim Optimism quite depressing, actually. This shirt is adorable. I see a robot who is going to play, not Death.
