That being said, I can't wear a shirt (or vote for one) that has such a gleeful lack of decency, implied or otherwise.



Then don't wear it.

Science Fair Trifecta:
Model volcano (often with vinegar/NaHCO3)
Model solar system (foam balls on strings)
Model Bohr atom (foam balls on coathangers)

Sadly, this was AFTER we taught the scientific method and the nature of experimentation. It's a rite of passage.

If you think this shirt is similar to that other one that looks exactly like this, you didn't "get it."

Nothing follows.

I didn't/don't see that anywhere! Dino guy did gradients?

No sense in crying, see ya soon!

Re: Experimental Fail



It's looking like Dark Humor is rampant in this derby. >.> Birds in blenders and poisoned turtles.

Although some people might look at this and think "Dear God, how could anyone do that to those poor defenseless animals?" You also have to understand that this is a graphic. No turtles were harmed in the making of this shirt. I'll also be laughing at those people whilst I wear this shirt (assuming it wins a placement).

I like the design. It's humorous in that dark and sinister way that always reminds me of middle school.

Also, I've been buying shirts for a bit (admittedly quite a few are Ramyb's designs) but I haven't posted in the community for very long. What is the deal with all the hate? What did Ramyb do exactly to garnish all this negative attention?

No wonder you're so good, if you drew like this when you were a kid

Love bright colors, I actually went muted palette this time and got rejected, but thanks for your fweedback. I fixed the background and went to upload and got a big load in my face.

Oh well, that's all the energy and time I could devote to woot, this week. Getting another Black Belt in Judo, this weekend. Gotta go practice. See ya next time, good luck!

+VOTE!

It looks like a generic man eating plant to me, they have appeared in more than just mario, and even in places before mario existed.

If you look at the prederby thread, he was very careful to make sure it didn't look like one from the game.

Re: You are here



HEEE FOG! Im so happy!! Rodents FTW!

Some rat trivia: This is a standard PEW rat, or pink-eyed white, commonly known as albino. There is a BEW, or black-eyed white rat, which is actually a dalmatian rat that isn't displaying any spotting. They are extremely rare.

Derp derp derp, this brought to you by Dorky Shawnna Records <3

Good luck, Naolito!!!

Thank you.



Yeah, on the submission page on the left side it states: "Your Design Detail & Shirt Comp images must show halftones." That means no gradients.
The Dino shirt did submit gradients, but then he removed it, converted to halftones, and resubmitted.

Heck yes! He is awesome! Even though the poor guy is scared to death... hahaha ohhh the things little kids do in the name of SCIENCE! But seriously, I always wanted a helium tank as a kid so I could make things float with various amounts of balloons... including myself, of course!

Well done once again, SG. I am still mourning the loss of Bundito last week so hopefully he will make it in the next DT! And I hope to buy this awesome turtle next weekend

Re: The RYB color model



Teeheehee... oh, Walzy Walzy Walzy... I can really respect the fact that when you ruffle feathers, it's over disturbing content, not lack of character, creativity, or originiality. I don't think anyone could get on your case when it comes to those 3 things

This is full of disgusting, disturbing win. I can't help but love it. I agree with Boots- LOVE the rainbow braces. What a great little way to insert some extra color. I won't go insane if this gets rejected, but I really hope it doesn't

Why would it receive a pardon?
I guess they must have changed the rules of this particular derby to "oh heck, just submit whatever you want because everyone is anyway, and if we reject everything off topic then we won't be left with a derby". Or something like that.

The original rejection was "Biohazard's effects on human beings is not at a middle school level of science". And since it wasn't changed at all why would the rules all of a sudden have changed?
Plus the rules state: "Keep it at a level you would expect walking into a grade school gym to judge a kid's experiment."

I know I'm probably coming across as a crotchety old man, but it does bother me a bit that there are some who follow the rules and there are those who sidestep them without any repercussions.
I'm really not crotchety, although I probably am a bit older than many on here.

Re: The Prince Charming Theorem



This is adorable I think the frogs are acting animal-like enough for sure. I think the text is also incidental enough because the concept would still be pretty clear without it. Maybe I'm a little bias but woot would have to be pretty picky to reject it for the frogs... the text would be more understandable. I hope it stays in the race, though!
