1. heather gray is not a color offered by woot, but this looks like silver anyway.
2. It's a bit off topic, since it's not composed of artistic elements, just drawn out.
3. Maybe update your signature to include links to your entries. This way people can click and see/vote.
Hey, it's my buddy critic, j5!
I really value your opinion and appreciate your taking the time to give it.
To address your points:
I pulled the heather off a Woot-posted template from the artists' resources so I'm a little confused, but silver would be just fine.
[Woops, I followed that useful thread down to the bottom, and found this -- maybe we can get the staff to edit at the top so no other junior wannabes like me make this same mistake. Seems that they used heather gray in 2008, but times change.]

Nom, the Abridged Version
Okay, Silver it is! Not that it will be printed, so meh!
Your second point was that it was off topic since it was just drawn out ...I guess I don't understand the rules, [And here I thought other people weren't following them.] or I'm doing a poor job communicating my idea through the picture, or both. The illustration is supposed to show an incomplete stencil of sorts that the word "meh" would have been in, but the painters didn't give a flip so they just freehanded it.
If this is off topic, then all three ideas are, unfortunately. But despite that, I am learning from the experience and the critiques.
Finally, I would like to figure out how to get the Sig line right, but when I just put a link to the thumbnail, it folds and needs to be scrolled, which led to a staffer pm'ing me and asking me to fix it. So I just went in, combined the three thumbnails and sized them down, but they are stored together, which means I can't link up to them individually.
If you feel like critiquing my other two [and I would so appreciate that because I'm not here to win, I'm here to learn -- getting a hundred votes is my next high water mark], here are links to my other two t-shirt designs in this derby:

I planned something fancier, but 'Meh'
Thanks bunches, and remember I like constructive criticism -- I'll just keep constructing it the same way if no one tells me what isn't working and what is. Muchas gracias!
