1. The lung effect puts this is danger of rejection, which for any artist but ramy would be a near certainty given the substantial similarity to the shirts already posted.
2. As many females have already stated, this is just not a shirt that pairs well with boobies especially for our lovely full figured ladies.
A slight shift away from the lung effect alleviates both concerns. I'm not sure why you'd be against a ramy shirt getting wider appeal?
i didn't need to calm down. you can't interpret tone in a post unless everything is in caps or something. i am just tired of bashing ramyb. it's old, it's played out, just plain l.a.m.e.
i do not support every ramyb shirt, only the ones i want, like the lungs one. in fact i don't support any artist all the time. i like some of tgentry's, bootsboots, drakxxx, binkdrop, genericsmith, jadenkale, jasneko, etc etc etc but i don't vote for every design, nor do i comment on every design. if i like a design, i vote and usually comment my favorite part. if i don't like a design i don't vote and only comment if it was one or two things that turned me away, mainly only when i have a suggestion. like pottery training, i begged for a bright shirt like lemon, the artist switched it and it got 4th or 5th. io was mad because i couldn't have it, but also because i thought did my shirt suggestion keep it from printing? if it is just horrible i keep my comments to myself like any normal person should do.
woot is clear that posts should be constructive criticism, not a thousand posts of "i hate ramy, he does the same thing everytime, shiny desu, halftones, blah blah blah blah". it's l.a.m.e. and really old. you don't have to like every designer, you don't have to like their style, you don't have to vote for them, and you most definitely don't need to bash the designer for making money. that is what this contest is about, making money. if you want to design things for the "art" of them, trying to sell tshirts may not be for you.
anyway, i need to climb back down off my soap box. i am not saying any designer is better than any other, i am just tired of negative nancy (adder) and wally whiner (kyle) never giving constructive feedback. i feel like they wait specifically for ramyb to submit anything and then spend the next six days trying to bash him rather than using that pent up energy to support others they believe in.
so anyway, good luck to everyone.
