There are a lot of entries in this derby that don't quite have the "experiment" feel but rather hearken back to elementary school "science fairs." And yeah, there are a lot of "Pluto isn't a planet" shirts floating out there, but something about the cut, sad, and lonely ball on the floor just appeals to me more than the myriad other Pluto shirts floating about the web.

I don't really see a very strong similarity to fractal tree, any moreso than any other swirly designs.



I did go back and review the fractal tree. It was far more different than I remember. I will admit that.

I think the thing that made the immediate connection was the floating stroke, the outline around the entire piece. The fact that its a stylized, swirly tree with a transition of colors, does have some influence, but adding the floating outline is what made it seem too close for comfort for me.... if that makes sense.

She's your innocent, no malice-meant but dumb kid trying to show off her experiment to her parent. Of course, the very next scene is the parent stopping her from using the blender, opening the jar for the "blue" bird and making some primetime-friendly joke like "Okay, maybe science isn't your thing. How about music? I don't think you can do any more harm there than Britney's already done." *audience laughs on cue*

Re: The RYB color model



Why is everyone upset about the bird in the blender, but nobody upset about the bird that's suffocating to death?

First of all, being blended would be an almost instantaneous death, whereas suffocation is much more painful.

Second of all, the blending has yet to happen. The suffocating bird IS ALREADY BEING SUFFOCATED!

That having been said, this is an absolutely awesome shirt. I wouldn't personally wear it, but it deserves to be in the fog, and maybe even win!

The bird that's turned blue from being suffocated is an example of cruelty to animals in my opinion. (Fictional animals, mind you.)

Re: In Harmony



Wave harmonics, most often used with music in science fair settings. I included the simplest equation for wavelength, I'm guessing most middle schoolers don't do much with sin/cos/etc. Inspired by this project.

Would love feedback, this took me ridiculously longer than it should have. I went through several variations that were more complex and had different elements, but I kept coming back to the simple version...

Re: Worst. Science project. Ever




I did a google, before this derby, on "Sea Monkeys." Mainly to copy the 50's style art for my cartoon (which, i nailed. Smudgewarpin gradients. I just learned to use them so I was "showin' off!)

I thought, there is no way on Pluto that-that woot would happen, here, unless I changed my tag to Rammy (but I like being a dog). I went to their actual website and the term, "Sea Monkeys" is a Registered Trademark. The "Concentration" (a TV Gameshow before your time) word-puzzle presentation is absolute ingenuity. I'm so jealous all I can sea id green monkeys.

I hope this prints because it transends the Science Fair, yet epitomizes it. Ihis is minimalist gold! No .....Paladium!

Kudos, mon amee! Le perfect subtrefuge ala mode. I hope you win! I give you all 4 of my VOTES! hehehee.

I'm not a fan of tall, relatively skinning designs running straight up the middle of the shirt. Having a rod going up the center of the your shirt often looks kind of funny, and makes people look fat (^_^). To be clear, this wasn't a deal-breaker for me here (I actually can't wear that shirt color, anyway) - it's not the worst case of center-tall-narrow-design, and I honestly don't know how you'd make this design so that it *wasn't* tall and narrow, unless maybe there was surrounding horizontal stuff (like maybe a table, but then you'd have a low horizontal, which would also be weird)
Anyway, point is that this isn't meant to be a super criticism for this particular design, just thought I'd mention in case you wanted to keep it in mind for future designs. I've seen others make similar comments on other long, skinny center shirts, so I don't think I'm alone in thinking it!



Thank you Reawan. I appreciate that feedback. also thank you for how you presented it. It didn't know that as an issue and defnitely will be logging that in for futre designs. Thanks for taking the time to share.

Re: Minor Modifications



Now I know why people love and hate you. This is simply put genius. You have a deft hand and a crafty brain.

I bet you like to play games, and probably really well. Risk, Chess, D&D, Tomb Raider... any of those hit? Oh, really? Hand-eye, I would've guessed that.

I'm brUno, the Blind Dog. I work mostly 3D, but I'm an old-school artist/cartoonist. I've done editorial and charicatures. I like telling stories with pictuers but I have a tendency to "show off" and over work/think stuff.

The quality I admire most in an artist is restraint. Restraint with the power to kill. It's like the old sensei that looks at you and you don't even consider making a move on him. Be cause you have no idea what he knows or what he'll do. I admire a man that learn his game and uses every strand to their advantage. This is what makes "Go" and Wooting so much FUN!

The TNMT was genius. Not the image, the entry. It's a distraction. You're good, really good. I've already figured out whot the "Dirty Dozen" are... and who the "Trinity" is and who all the other angels that are in Heather-Grey land.

I will get to know you. I will win one of these, ...soon, (I gotta get my swing adjusted for competition) within six months, and I will converse with you, then, as a peer. I will admire and challenge you till then.

On-e gai-simashu, Ha-jime no Dong-Ki Kon-GO!

Re: My Pet Turtle Weighs 6 Balloons



Cute! My nephew (who just turned 5) did a science fair thing a couple weeks ago about how many paperclips something weighed...I can't remember what he was weighing, not a turtle, but his hypothesis was that it weighed 6 paperclips! Whatever it was weighed over 100 paperclips though.

For example, the people arguing that an 11 year old would be smart enough to know this experiment wouldn't work. If you wanted the derby entries to realistically capture the experiments in a middle school science fair, we'd only have a bunch of entries revolving around potato catapults and posters based on the water cycle, which I'm pretty sure no one wants.



Hey... I'd wear a shirt based on the water cycle...

Re: Experimental Fail



all of this arguing about being on topic or a knock off of epic begins and not one comment about the placement? even if woot printed a little higher and smaller on a woman's shirt it'd still look like a couple of boxes sitting on top of the boobs. so take your pick - boxes on top of or covering your boobs, girls!

i don't approve of any of the shirts that are geared towards animal cruelty. i've watched too many shows like criminal minds and csi, and the people that were cruel to animals as a child were always the ones that wound up as serial killers or something of the like.

Thanks!

Yeah, I went to a middle school and at least at that time, no 8th graders taking trig, the highest they offered was geometry (I was one of "those" students). Would have loved to put some fun standing wave equations on it, but didn't fit the average middle school level. Ha, talking about this makes me miss math/physics, which I've had very little to do with since undergrad...now how much of a geek does that make me?
