Re: Double Helix



Cool t shirt but you need do more research into DNA. The standard Beta form of DNA has a right hand twist yours is a left hand twist. If you are trying to represent zDNA the standard model would not fit as the major and minor grooves look completely different due to changes in Hydrogen bonding

Please. Considering how many shirts woot sells, we're talking chump change between this (if it prints) and whatever shirt it bumps from the top three. In the end, woot sells lots of shirts. Check out the reckoning. Likewise, shirts that print in double-takes and EC's often outsell a whole slew of shirts that got more votes before. That's not looking at it economically. It's focusing on one minute piece of info that goes against what years of reality have shown.

And besides, if what you're saying were the case, why have themes at all? Why not just pull what teefury does and sell a daily IP theft that would be sure to sell out? Woot wants to have derby themes, so it's in their best interest to enforce them. Not to mention, it's also in the interest of the artists who actually attempt to work within the theme.

Basically woot is odd.



Ahhhh... Okay. That explains it.

This is a horrendous view. And this is as generic a shirt as there can be. I'm not sure why this is the scientific method. For all of you people who say "It has carbon on it and the only way you know what carbon looks like is the scientific method"...seriously? How far are you willing to stretch the rules? (Seeing how popular Ramy's stuff is, I guess pretty far)

What the hell? Ignoring the inanity of the rest of the post, I just want to know what this even means.

And if you think the Anti-Ramy movement has been around for only two weeks, you have no idea. It's been around for much longer, and he's done everything he can to merit it.

Fantastic. Would be nice to get a real piece of well done artwork into the fog instead of the cutesy joke-laden norm.

Thought both versions were very good but this one has a much more intense feel. Good job implementing the recommendations (although i do prefer the nasally challenged individuals of your universe), the new lighting and colors create an even better story. i do miss the 'sous-chef' silhouette, but get the omission due to the fear of the dreaded big red stamp. Hopefully this will get into fog, great job on another fantastic entry.



Thanks, I appreciate the positive feedback, and I am glad you like it.

Also, did you happen to get my private message... there is some good news in there. And I greatly appreciate your message and all the support you have provided!

Re: Made of carbon



Had to doublecheck the name on the design, thought it was a Ramy for sure from the thumb.

Glad to see more off-topic generic pandering shirts on here, though...

I find it a very artistic depiction of carbon based life forms. The subtlety with which the design portrays the idea is quite nice. I enjoy when someone looks at a shirt I'm wearing and thinks "oh that's a cool design." Then after looking a little closer goes: "oh wow, I didn't notice that before." True it is a stretch from the scientific method, but I'd buy the shirt.

I'll just tell the bacteria to lay off the floor waffles. No problem.

I'm also going to England for two weeks starting Tuesday...so if anyone wants to have a Shepherd's Pie party, i'm down

megsck wrote:as always you have another awwsome entry and funny concept this week!

i do want to add however that i think i liked your initial sketch much better because you could see your fantastic character designs better. i also think i would have preffered a little simpler detail, the grain on the floor is a little overpowering for me, but i get the point that we are seeing very small and the detail adds to that.



Thanks meg(s)! It's always hard transitioning from the sketch to the final because I start questioning my initial impulses. Some stay, some don't. By the way, i wanted you to 'have' a sketch i whipped up yesterday based on your Sherlock Holmes suggestion. i really wanted to do a "Who replaced Watson with this fat guy?" shirt, but i lack the skillz to pull it off. Anyway, i got the first drawing off and decided to put it to rest. Makes me giggle though

1) I doesn't show any kind of method. It's just sciencey imagery. It's like if the theme was Recipes or Cooking, and the shirt just showed a single ingredient (a bell pepper) or just a finished product (a plate of spaghetti). That doesn't qualify as Cooking or Recipes. It qualifies as food.

DNA is not representative of the Scientific Method.

2) That he simply resubbed a shirt he already tried to peddle earlier shows laziness, greed and a lack of respect for the spirit of the competition. Why not resub every other failed-to-win-in-another-derby design he ever created that tangentially (at best) fits the theme? Flood the competition with your own entries to increase your chances of winning; other designers be damned!

OH, but don't listen to me. I'm clearly just jealous of ramy's immutable talent.

As off-theme as ramy's DNA shirt; but at least this one looks cool.

Adder, you bring beating a dead horse to a whole new level. Open a window, walk outside, get laid, whatever. You can make your point in one or two posts, the extent that you go shows how weak your arguing is.

To be fair, the same thing could be said of all the designs with test tubes in them this week. We just don't see people carrying on and on and on about it to them.

djfrozone wrote:I AGREE with this post and the last part. Who cares who the artist is?? IF he makes a desgin the users of woot want then who cares? i went through the whole derby and this is one of two shirts. I'd want and buy. thats the point. I think the anti-ramy movement is stronger than the lets just have fun movement. the last two weeks have been nothing but ramy bashing. this design is on point and flows with the theme and well executed.

This talk of changing the voting system for what??? so maybe that other shirt you like would get printed?? Is it really ramy's fault his designs sell here? (to the alleged vote gouging...paaahhaha.) If you dont like his shirt. you still have two more choices. So fall back. and enjoy the artists creations.



By golly, you're right! Why criticize what you find awful?? I mean, if Hollywood churns out crap movie after crap movie, then just don't go see them! Saying that you demand better as a consumer is stuuuuuuuupid! OBVIOUSLY someone likes it, so what's the point is saying that YOU don't? GAWL if your opinion doesn't agree with ours, you should just keep it to yourself!
