I hate that budgetary needs will probably keep me from buying this. The illustration is at once epic and hilarious--it's almost impossible for designs to hit both those buttons at the same time the way this one does.

Re: Combustible Prey



I love it and did vote for it. But, am I the only that after looking at it for a bit think the tail looks a bit like it could be the right hind leg with a mangled foot? Only "negative" I have to say about this design.

Top notch.

Then one would suggest that you should, perhaps, come back the following week, when there would potentially be a theme that DOES match your tastes, and leave the Steampunk week to people who actually LIKE the theme and want to buy a shirt that actually fits it.

Re: Artificial Heart



I actually like the center placement just fine... but on the right would work just fine too, I guess.

Either way, coolness indeed.

I really like the design. It probably should be centered though.

I really like the image, but I think it would be better with a higher placement.

So it's going to be... center placement, similar colors
But i'm also thinking of changing the shirt color to black and i'm adding on a lot more to the design



I don't know, I don't think I'd like it so much on a black shirt in comparison...

Budgetary needs... so true! =[
However, it still needs to win, and then come out and then be ten dollars and that's when we need to snap it up and get it before it becomes fifteen and then I really will have to wait...
the design is pure genius imho ^.^

Well, even if legalities make you wait, I'll be checking in again to figure out when I CAN buy this, wherever it ends up.

Re: Steampunk Willie



To a fan of the Mouse, it was instantly recognizable, and yet, you did make it very different.

LIKE.

Not to diffuse your # of votes, but could you try redoing it and making him out to be obviously piloting a zeppelin? That would be the cherry on top!

I had to make something behind it to make it less like a bird slapped on a shirt. Maybe should have done a technical tree-like background... hmm...

Not very steampunk but very cool. It's a fun shirt to look at, cool colors, and the cat and mice are a nice touch. Well done.

I assumed that the red light coming from the wolf's body implied that the creature is mostly clockwork powered by steam.

This is my favorite Derby contender. I hope it gets printed.

Re: Beauty and the Beast



I agree. This is really well done except that the two figures blend in too much, and it would probably be worse on a shirt.. Maybe if you had Beauty casting some shadow on Beast's leg she'd stand out more. Of course you'd have to move the shadow from underneath him to behind him... Just an idea though. I'd vote for it if I could distinguish the two more easily.

Thanks. It will be for sale (probably in 60 days) at www.cafepress.com/A2Ts. The question is, can I post it 60 days from the day of rejection, or 60 days from the end of the derby?

Re: Artificial Heart



Thanks for the comments! I thought about a right placement, but it would have to be smaller - thus losing detail...

In the end - I wanted this to be an artificial heart outside of the body - so placement didn't matter.

I love steampunk and I love t-shirts, but I am tired of the same old kitsch shirts... that being said this one definitely has my vote. Good job.

Sorry, although it may be visually appealing, I don't quite get it.



Have you ever read any steampunk... very little of any of it has a discernible point, but that doesn't make it any less cool

Like LTU99 said, the agreement ends 60 days after submission. I think they put the language "Woot disclaims any interest" because Woot still might use non-winning derby submissions for daily shirts and a rejection doesn't preclude that.

On the issue of the rejection, it might be because of the Tetris reference rather than the GameBoy. If it's because of the GameBoy, it doesn't make sense. I don't recall Woot's history with Tetris. Still, I can see this as parody of GameBoy but it's not parody of Tetris.

I think you're right--the device itself is neat, but I think the diagrams really make the design complete. Voted!

I find myself looking at the entire design rather than just one side, which really allows me to appreciate it that much more.

I really like the colors and think the background gives the design a nice touch. I think you really hit dead on with the theme and am impressed with the quality of both of your submissions. Awesome job!



Thank you ! That was a very in depth and kind review. I'm glad that I decided to keep the additional text.

re: synthetic beauty



The shirts I love don't always make it into the fog, but this is just beautiful. I love the placement too.

Nice work!
