Wow, the fog got a major (but expected) trim.

Both versions have their strong points. I would say the rejected one was better for having the dino an addition to the map instead of the whole map. And this one for being an easier visual read, I also like the wood-graining.

My boyfriend is a turtle fanatic. He got me a gorgeous tutle necklace that I always wear. The necklace is what gave me the idea.

Kudos for being so cool about that; not many artists would be so agreeable.

However, I think one of the reasons (not necessarily the main one) for the 'similar shirt exists' rule is to promote diverse designs. Whether intentional or not, ramy's design was a fraternal twin of yours. The 'joke' may not have been the same, but I mean come on, it was a firefox covering the Earth.

No, it's more like saying you can't complain for getting nailed going 45 in a 40 zone when you've gotten away with going 80 in a 15 zone.

Sure, it's kind of obvious, but that didn't stop me, and I don't consider this one to be "stealing" my joke.

And to the people who say the image doesn't need the text, if it wasn't there, it wouldn't be a map joke, it would be a bad driver joke.



I'll say the same thing I said to DianaSprinkle in the Global Warming thread: very cool that you don't mind a previously used designed being re-used. But, while he did it intentionally or not, the 'similar shirts exist' rule exists for a reason. This seems to be violating that rule.

tjost wrote:Again though as you just pointed out its not exactly the map from dora. Not only does it not look the same, mine is actually unraveld a bit ( which the dora map does not do) to show its not that map nor a zelda map. In the end its up to woot though.



My reasoning on this is woot wanted pop-culture in moderation, one element is fine But like Spiritgreen's Link your Link is paired with another pop-culture reference. There is nothing solely yours in the design. That is why using the Map character from Dora doesn't fly here while it does in the Patcha the explorer design.

Wait, Patcha is just a made up name, right? I haven't read the right kind of books to know.


Edit: Well, pop-culture in moderation may not be the perfect way to explain it either, since someone created a Nintendoland and had like 20 different pop-culture references in it. But that theme park was his, you have the 2 references without anything else to say they are not in one of those fictional worlds. If you had put link in New York and had him turn to the equally confused Map for guidance I would guess that it would have gotten by.

I would say different concepts. Sadly this got rejected over crap and Ramby hate around here.

This design clearly was a play on the the firefox logo. I would of bought it but sadly got rejected. This week is not looking good for me to get one of the derby shirts.

That rule only applies if the first design actually becomes a shirt. The "exists" part of the rule as it were. The first design for this one was never made into a shirt.

Also... woot is very particular about this rule, sometimes they are strict to an extreme and sometimes they let similar shirts pass on by. In last week's Halloween derby, Ramyb's bunny avoided rejection even though a slightly different version of the same idea by him was rejected for "similar shirt's existing" in a previous derby. The rejectionator is fickle.

Don't think that is an option, just resubmitting.

Did you use the smae color as their cream shirt? That might be why the rejectionator got confused. Many new comers don't put the shirt color behind their drawing and so get this reason for rejection.

I don't see why this was rejected. The thumbnail is just a close up of a small part of the shirt. I think you should argue this point.

I'm wondering if it's really as noble as you're thinking. Seems like it could also be a "bases" thing, which would be... yeah.

rowanmikaio wrote:I'm kind of surprised that no one seems to have commented on the art itself. I'm normally pretty forgiving, and I've defended Ramy's decisions a few times in the past, but I have to say that the car looks pretty awkward with the way it's sticking out of the water. I mean, the rear left tire, based on this perspective, hasn't even hit the water yet. That means that over HALF of the car isn't in the water. That wouldn't happen, because the weight of the car would push the back half down until it hit the water.

And since the guy is not only outside of the car, but has managed to get a decent distance away, the car is sinking ridiculously slowly.

Sorry, but I can't vote for this one. Maybe next time, Ramy!



You're definitely overanalyzing this. Nobody is going to sit there staring at the shirt thinking, "Why hasn't the car sunk more?" They'll just see that the GPS led the person astray, laugh, and go on with life. I say thumbs up for the design!
