Very cool use of space, and looks like getting trapped in the details wasn't too bad - they are great details!

I really like the idea, and the detailing is great. I worry that some of that would be lost on the t-shirt. It's almost too busy...

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Aw... sad. Well done though.

Pandas need naps too! It would stink being woken up everytime a visitor came by...

I had fun coming up with a design for this derby. This is my first derby entry ever and I'm pretty happy with it. I absolutely adore steampunk so I knew that I had to make something for it!

Once its rejected it was my understanding that it is free and clear since it is no longer eligible to win or be used. Woot essentially decided that they don't want to sell it and won't sell it. I'll gladly pull it if Joel or anyone can show me in writing from woot that rejected shirts still adhere to the 60 day time frame. I'm not trying to pull a stunt, I'm just trying to strike while the iron is hot on a shirt that woot will never print or make money on themselves.

Thanks guys. It's cool to be getting kind words from some of the woot designers I e"steam" the most.

Srzly, I'm thrilled the way it turned out and am glad y'all agree. This is the first design I've done since the robot/roomba one where I keep going to back to it and smiling to myself.

Enough tooting my own whistle. There are some great designs this week so I ain't going to hold my locomotive-breath.

Awesome! GMV!

It seriously reminds me of this:



But in a good way. That is Optimus Prime from the Hearts of Steel Transformers Comic.

This shirt is AMAZING!!! I love it!!! If it gets rejected for some stupid "no flying penguins" rule I swear I am never coming back to this site again!

Re: Steampunk Birdsong



The inside of any bird can be broken down into cells, neural circuits, and chemicals. But maybe the cardinal, with his morning whistle song, is really just a mechanical device?

Ok, there seems to be a bit of a gray area here. According to the agreement upon submission "6. Term of Agreement. (a) This Agreement terminates 60 days from the submission of the Artwork if during that 60-day period Woot disclaims any interest in using the Artwork or does not inform Artist of its intent to use the Artwork. "

So, does a rejection constitute Woot disclaiming interest? I am going to have to email Joel about this and put my shirt sale at cafepress.com/A2Ts on hold until I hear back from him (providing it happens in a reasonable time period).

I think you need to re-read it....it means that the agreement terminates 60 days from submission if they either tell you they aren't printing it, or simply don't say anything....you have to wait 60 days regardless. That said, I think "rejected" shirts should be handled differently & immediately released, but I don't think woot currently sees it that way (maybe something about rejected shirts should be added to their "agreement").

Just saw this one- nice work! Great looking creature, looks better w/out cartoonish girl (but she would look good with a similarly drawn counterpart).

What tail?

Almost voted. Thought the design would be bigger on shirt. That's just a personal preference. I like the art itself.

The first version had a tail, I took it out to make it less Mickey like.

Very nice use of subtle color, but I'm not so fond of the texture on the ground and how it cuts off so abruptly. But definitely submit somewhere else if it doesn't place.

I think if you could solve that problem, you'd be golden. The complexity of your art with a really simple focal point would be great.

Edit: this is already great as an illustration, I'm blown away by your style.



Yeah I'm totally stuck in illustrator mode.

I'm gonna need to make a better effort next round to break that lock.

I had a second simpler idea. I may submit that tomorrow or Monday. Though I'm hesitant to bother with a late submission.

I actually prefer Rglees, he made great use of the wheels, putting them on the side of the arms. I can't even tell if the Optimus even has the wheels on him. Really hope this gets a chance somewhere.

Re: Feathered Heart



My second design. I haven't resubmitted the boxless version of my steampunk girl.

Mmm. I was kind of iffy about the white text, but I felt that it still needed something in the background. Hope you guys like it!

Some people have guff with this design, but it's very wearable and many people like it. =)

Wow, thank you for all the positive feedback. I'm glad that you enjoyed the design, I really love drawing things like this, but I don't like doing it for tshirt designs because you are limited to 6 colors and therefore limited in what you can do with the picture.

Now on the touchy subject of steampunk/not steampunk - I think the lineart was much more steampunky than the finished version, see here: http://i42.tinypic.com/2410042.jpg The wolf was supposed to be part metal, part organic, and powered by like a furnace type thing- hence the red light coming out from the cracks of the metal and the smokestacks. Unfortunately, it came out a little too organic and so I can see why it would look like armor instead of looking like it's part machine. Red, on the other hand, I think is completely steampunk, minus the hood - I wasn't sure about the hood, but I liked the way that it looked with the ragged edges, so I did it like that, and I didn't think it was NOT steampunk particularly. Anyway, I understand if you choose not to vote because of it, but I believe that in art style derbies, there can be many interpretations of the style.

Regardless, thanks for the support on the design.

Re: Let's Play



For anyone who doubt's this entry, which I love by the way, don't you think woot has thoroughly looked and pondered at this as being "steampunk". From past experience, I find that woot is pretty strict on their entries. I don't think they would let someone win $1,000 for being off-topic.
