Aside from all the other controversy, as a physics person, it's driving me nuts. From an artistic standpoint as well, I think it might work even better if the white light/roots were coming in from the left so that the scattered spectrum would end up vertical.



Yes, but then it wouldn't really look like a tree. It's called "artistic license."

I don't understand why people feel the need to always put down ramy's work and try to nit-pick every design and insist it gets rejected. So you don't like it. Apparently lots of other people do and would be willing to buy it, and that's all shirt.woot really cares about to be honest. Ramy has found his niche and he makes designs accordingly. You can't get mad at him for sticking to his style, because EVERY woot shirt designer has a style that you can spot almost immediately.



Ramyb is successful. Success inspires jealousy. With any successful person, you're going to get people who criticize just for the sake of bring them down.

....yet, I see a lot of people who react to genuine criticism of ramyb shirts with "LEAVE RAMYB ALONE!" I don't think this is fair. Nothing is above criticism... science itself, in fact, is founded on the basis of intelligent criticism. Thus, people have a right to make either positive or negative comments about ANY artist...

Why is ramyb successful? It has nothing to do with artistic viability. Woot is NOT the market for artistic shirts... it caters to the funny and the cute sympathizers. There's nothing wrong with this, it's just the way things are.

...but, cute and cuddly is a style easily mastered. Go to any high school- there is a vast multitude of young folk who draw in that stereotypical kawaii style. It's not original, and it's very... safe. In the case of ramyb, he succeeds only because he has amassed a HUGE fanbase, and markets himself very well. That's why his shirts win and sell-the fan base buys then and dictates the outcome of all the derbies because of numbers.

Personally... I would like to buy shirts that push the artistic envelope. I really don't want to buy the same shirt over and over again. However, I am in the minority and I respect that... Even if this prints, I don't have to buy it, and I won't.

...this and the blender shirt, they re disgusting. It might be "just a cartoon..." but that's how you get people to accept horrible ideas. Through laughter...

Nice design otherwise, but I agree that it's off topic and not middle-school-science-fair material.



I was allowed to equipment on fish for a science fair project in middle school so it depends on where you go.

As a middle school science teacher, I have to say that this shirt simply rocks.

And yes, we do teach the simpler version of Punnett Squares in 7th grade, but we leave the incomplete dominance, dihybrid crosses, and linked traits until high school.

One quibble I have is the lack of distinction between alleles and phenotypes, but nonetheless, this shirt has my vote!

My only critique is that it's on grey and that's a personal dislike rather than a design flaw.

Still gave it a +1 because the art style is great.

TMNT was in fact a comic book first 3 years after they also made it into a cartoon. Regardless of what format it was in first TMNT was in fact a video game, and not just one video game either. Wiki has a kist of TMNT video games and they list 21 different games all titled TMNT. The fact is that in addition to being a comic and a cartoon it is also a video and that clearly violates the first rule of the derby and thus it should have no place in this derby.

Re: Experimental Fail



This shirt hinges on the nostalgia factor. "Oh look!" people say, "It's a ninja turtles joke! I love ninja turtles!". Show this shirt to someone who doesn't know what the ninja turtles are (though you might be hard-pressed) and it instantly loses its meaning. In other words, the design itself can't stand alone. This is why I don't like this design and think it's a really bad example of representing a science fair entry. Obviously, it's 'on topic' (whether or not it's in bad taste, a dumb kid with negligent parents could probably manage this), but these derbies give us a theme so that we can be creative and branch out...not so we can twist and bend it into a pop-culture reference that will gain us nostalgia votes. Even so, obviously Woot is trying to give all of us a fair shake. So, thanks Woot. And no thanks on this one, Ramy.

There has been ONE rejection for TMNT on the "no Video Game" rule and after that people complained. So ever since then TMNT shirts have NOT been rejected for the "no video game" rule.

Please see the India derby: http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=49558
And the "Things that Start with the letter T" Derby: http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=49842
And the Oddball derby: http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=49957

All of these derbys had a "no Video Game" rule and had TMNT shirts that were not rejected. Woot seems to care about the original format for the "No Video Game" rule.

No it doesn't make sense but I guess that's how woot wants to deal with things that get TURNED into games.

Of course they could change their mind on this at any time. It's happened before. Shrug. Anyway! Let's move on to a different complaint shall we?

I don't know, I think it could be a lot closer to accurate angles and still look like a tree.

interesting that you picked this particular entry to state your opinion of the "cute" influence. imho the figures are more hideous than cute.

Thank you guys!

I tried this week to make a fun visual that tied into the theme, but would be amusingly incongruous by itself. You can imagine looking out of a window and seeing this guy paddling through the air.

Probably a bit too random but I appreciate everyone who gets a kick out of it. ^___^

Sure it is. Based on this experiment. And the instructions say "depictions of the theories explored, science fair experiments themselves, or maybe just the chemical or physical processes involved" so I'd say this fits fairly well.

No go ESPECIALLY when you're designing for a MIDDLE SCHOOL science fair!
Rethink your promo and pull this entry....please.



Glad to know I'm not the only one who doesn't see the connection to a science fair here. Still can't figure out why this and a few others weren't pulled that are currently in the fog---waste of another week.

Re: Anyone Out There? (resub)



I like the artwork and content, but the placement/layout isn't the best, especially for someone who has any significant roundness up top (i.e. boobs). The kid is far enough to the side that he would likely not be viewed completely, plus the alien falls into the directly-under-and-therefore-possibly-in-shadow area, especially with how far to the side it is.
