I'm pretty sure that Leonard Cohen wrote everybody knows after losing thousands of dollars trying to win one of those goldfish.

Re: THE ULTIMATE THRILL RIDE



I'd ride it, but I'd probably feel bad about kicking the shark in the nose unless it was a robo-shark.

That robot is completely loveable. He looks like he had a very satisfying day of fun. Love it!

I understand, but people aren't often interested in shirts with people on them and I needed an animal with long ears to wave in the breeze...

@usopp: thanks! www.dooomcat.com or you can check out my web comic as the art's pretty similar: www.bearnutscomic.com

Re: When Sparks Fly



Maybe if you used different color hexagons, instead of outlines that make hexagons? then it wouldnt make me look at the floor, or maybe just a more muted color.

Re: Tea Time



Creative idea and awesome use of colors. I like the way you did the background.

Re: Tiger Blood



Wow, didn't think this would create controversy about being somehow pop culture. The title really shouldn't matter. The only reason I titled it "Tiger Blood" is because I honestly couldn't think of anything that better fit the scene.

Re: Sign Park



You were wise to omit all the text, my design was rejected. I saw your design in the pre-derby forum thread (on page 5) and when no one said anything about all the descriptive text you had on your original design, I thought it would be allowed in the derby.

Re: To Hell and Back



Thank you so much everyone. I am really glad so many are enjoying the design and I appreciate the comments! You are all awesome and have good taste!

@Kevlar... I didn't see it until you mentioned it, but it is kind of the "warm" version of "Oh Shiny." Good eye

I think you should add heat waves above the 4th one and change the 5th into one that has ketchup or mustard dripping down his face.

GMV either way.



Solid suggestion! I made the changes and I thank you very much. I knew there was something missing...

What exactly is being stolen here? Does Ramy have a copyright on hastily drawn baby reapers?

I think this is a riot. It's further evidence (not that it was needed) that anyone with a modicum of artistic ability can produce Ramy-style junk. Yet when it's under another person's name it doesn't shoot to the fog. And I'm not the least bit surprised.

I changed the ink colors and added more support system to the coaster. Thanks novastarj for the constructive criticism. The extra wood structure really did help the design.

Added text:

I also want to thank every woot voter that helped me get me to this point. This is my best entry yet and very exciting for me.

Clearing the fog (wishful pun):
I don't have a big woot following and I don't "get votes from a newsletter, mass emails, fake accounts or shout outs". I was not accused of this nor do I think many good artist on woot use these methods. See GUMIYO thread for quote.

I have a few friends and my family behind me - thanks guys. ANY artist with skills and drive can make it on woot. Thank you everyone and thanks woot.

Now, onto the main attraction.

Creative: The derby topic was released at noon and I was on the phone with my wife... "BIG" she replied.

From there, I got back to my biggest memory from my adolescent amusement park trips. My FIRST big ride. The American Eagle. Six Flags Great America - Gurnee, Illinois.

The shirt image is my memory of looking up at the big drop standing in line. The two inks were selected to represent the final ride.

The American Eagle - WIKI: "127 feet (38 m) tall and reaches speeds of 66 mph (105 km/h). The bottom of the first drop is built 20 feet (6.1 m) below ground level, bringing the height of the first drop to just over 147 feet (45 m). The Eagle debuted in 1981 as the tallest and fastest racing wooden roller coaster in the world, which it still retains today."

CRAP! I accidentally deleted Funnytoad's post. Apologies. Here it is. :

BootsBoots wrote:you assume the person wearing the shirt is the "ride" (which is pretty sexual). It might not be what you intended, but it might come across that way.



Boots = Win

Trav, think of this as a learning experience instead of moaning about how unfair the world is. Your competing against folks that have talent. If you have it, find the spot where it SHINES BRILLIANT!

Expect to get shot down often and hard.
Rebound or don't, but don't whine.

I LIKE the thought of your design, but I wouldn't wear your shirt to my workplace for fear of having my face beat in by a mob of ... uhh... my workmates.

Since my other entry was going to be rejected for somehow breaking the "no pop culture" rule, here it is again. Same exact design. New title.

Please re-vote everyone!
Thanks!

Re: Tunnel of Love


I would really like this shirt if it had a "going in the tunnel" image of just two rabbits, then with this as the "exit" picture >.<

I guess when they say no pop culture it goes beyond just the art.... *shrug*

Kind of poopy, but better sooner than later I guess. Revoted!
