Incredibly well done! Adorable and a great idea as well. I'm jealous of the way you were able to make the little creatures come to life, and hope that I can get there!

While this is almost certainly the best drawn shirt in the derby, I just can't get behind it because the wee animals are killing themselves. But you are a talented artist.

Actually it's been a very quiet derby thus far. I suspect it can make it in the fog with just over 200 votes.

Thanks iambe…. Before placing an entry in a derby a few weeks ago, it had actually been a really long time since I’d drawn anything. Any experience I have had has been strongly graphical, not so much illustrative. For this derby, I’m struggling with work-flow more than anything (pencil to ink to scanner to PhotoShop) but have found that I can come up with forms that look like things without a lot of trouble. I’ve been sketching entries and lurking for the past few weeks, but finally had one (the frog) I thought I could digitize. For the animals, as I sketch, I’m trying to think of the mass or even skeleton of whatever it is, and that’s been helpful.

So why the derby? The few times I’ve thought to myself that I should sit down and try to draw something, I’ve been lost for a topic, and that’s about where it ends. The derby provides a topic. The derby also provides a place to display final art, and a place for people to give feedback. I’ve also learned about techniques by watching the entries and reading some of the posts. The voting thing can also be a lot of fun (as you know!) Anyhow, the derby fits exactly wherever it is that I am as an artist right now.

To all,
The comments I’ve received on the entries this week have been very encouraging. I can’t thank you enough. I finally ordered my first-ever drawing tablet just yesterday. I’ve never used one, but I think I get the concept, and can hardly wait to give it a try. You’ll be the first to see how it goes.

I agree totally. the thing i like about the derby is that it offers me a focus, and it gives me a deadline. thats two things.. the two things i like about the derby is the focus, the dead line, and the excitement of the competition.. oh snort.. thats three.. Among the things i like about the derby are fear, surprise and a ruthless efficiency.. oh wait.. dangit..


I couldn't agree more.. and i look forward to more submissions by you.

The thrill of competition.... Yeah, it's hard not to keep checking the votes and posts -- rather addicting. Regarding "technique" above, it was your hamster that inspired me to even try to digitize this entry. I remember studying how you worked the colors without outlining them all -- as I attempted here with the dark vs. light brown. I look forward to trying out other techniques in future weeks.

I love this! if it wins I'll buy at least 2. My boss is trying to collect our promotional foam piggies (I work at a bank) to turn them into a herd of lemmings running off the top of his cubicle. He's got 2 and I found a sticker that says, "Go lemmings go!" to replace his nametag. hehe

Well, the frog shirt got rejected. So, just to be clear: If death and taxes are the only requirements in life, then Leap Day is optional. As the saying goes, "Just because everyone else is doing it...." and I’m applying that to Leap Day. Go ahead and have March 1st on a Friday this year, if you like.

Wow, top 10! Go lemmings!
Everyone vote!

WOW! I find that very surprising. Good thing you submitted your alternative design. Glad to see it getting noticed. I suspect that you will surpass me tonight based on the momentum you have! Wouldn't be shocked to see the Lemmings in the fog by the end of the week.

Sorry about the rejection...but best of luck on the latest submission!

Hey, meant to answer this before. I don’t know ’bout tutorials, but a while back Woot sold a shirt by Ray Frenden, an illustrator, and linked to his site. On the site, he’s posted a couple videos of himself working – actually, a screen shot and his own narration. I’ve known technically what a tablet does – i.e. pressure, position, etc. – but it wasn’t until I saw someone (Ray) using one that it clicked for me how it could work in practice.

Make sure you’ve voted for the lemmings, and then have a look at:
His home page (lots of images, long download): http://frenden.com/
The video I mentioned: http://frenden.com/crustacean-creation-video/
FYI, he also has a YouTube page with other videos. You can find a link to that on his site too.

Good luck!

Thanks so much for the info, I've had a tablet for a long time but frustration got the best of me and I would like to start using it again. Once again you guys/gals have all been great at helping out the new guy this week. Thanks.

Very cute shirt! You are going to love having a tablet. I had one of them when they first came out several years ago and I didn't like it much. But I just bought a new one and it is awesome.

I suggest trying your hand at drawing some ferrets!

Re: Just because.....


This is a great design! I would buy this today, if I could. That being said, the asphalt shirt color worries me with the brown lemmings. I'm thinking of 'Taking Flight' (in similar colors) and 'Full of Ink' (dark purple on asphalt). They are both extremely nice shirts that I'm proud to wear, but the designs are awfully difficult to make out on the asphalt. Some folks are even dying/bleaching the shirts for that reason. The extensive detailing on this design makes me think some of it will get lost in the depths of the sea of asphalt, especially the divers, swimmers, and shadows.

To sum up: I love it. I'd buy it, even on asphalt (and I already own 8 asphalt shirts). I really, REALLY wish Shirt.Woot would offer AA's silver shirt as a design option along with a few other, lighter colors (that are not cream).

You're right Parker....I didn't think about the color issues either on the lemmings print. I hope it doesn't suffer the same fate as the dark brown on my Taking Flight shirt. Hopefully the colors are light enough that they contrast with the dark gray...but the asphalt tee really does look darker than the woot template.

That being said, I'd like to see it in the fog and I'm soooo curious how many more votes it needs. I think it has the momentum to be in the fog by this afternoon/evening.

P.S. I love VWs.. and karmann's are no exception. My first car was an 89 VW Cabriolet convertible, and was even in a local VW car show. The Karmanns stole the show, however. ;)

Are you kidding? I’ve been following the derby for a while, and there are certain things that I’d hoped I’d someday see about one of my designs, like little milestones: Someone saying “well done” on the execution, someone actually saying “I’d buy that!” or some variation (there’s a first for everything!), someone mentioning the word “daily” under my design (other shirt), and someone, someday, actually adding my voter button to their sig. And there it is, right by the bouncing chinchilla! And did you see what tgentry wrote? Whatever happens, I’ve gotten far more out of this derby than I could have ever asked. Thanks for your encouragement – and the added visibility!

I love this design (as well as your screen name... was figuring you had the car; I'd love to have a car like that someday, but fear I'm too many generations behind it, since that car's almost twice as old as me)
Anyway, had hopes of you doing well, but feared like you did at first that it was too late. Come on fog! I wanna buy this one!

Hmm, just went in for 3 Randoms, when I haven't bought any shirts lately (although still checking frequently) so what are the chances of liking them!?! Oh well, couldn't pass up the mystery!

its possible, I guess. But there are less than 15 hrs left, and many of those are in the late, late night. If it had made it into the fog this afternoon, then it would have a good chance. It's hard to break into there, even with as quick rising a design as this one.

I’d have guessed Math and Giraffes were tops, as they’ve been consistently in the “hotness” throughout, with the other two trading places in that list. But then I see the giraffes got a later start in the fog.

Looks like shirtderbystats may be trying to estimate the relative scores for the fog, but doesn’t pretend to try to guess the spread between 4 and 5 – at least not after 3.5 days without anyone dropping out. It just knows that #4 has at least one more vote than #5, and that's what it shows. I guess there’s only one way to find out….

Thanks kls. Stonehenge was OK IMO, but certainly wouldn't rank it as one of my personal favorites of mine so I don't mind so much that it probably won't get printed. I do like the lemmings though, so at least it got replaced with something cool.

This ShirtDerbyStats is about as wrong as possible. Although I can't stay away. That probably means I'm next though.

Anyhow a rather static derby just got incredibly heated should be fun to watch the next 10.5 hours.

No, I really think you're fine. Your shirt has been in the hotness for a long time. I hope it gets printed.

Disclaimer: Of course, I could be wrong :D lulz*

Congrats TG. You and the Lemmings will be battling it out for 3rd. In fact, it could be close between all four fogged entries.

G'night. Good luck to all the foggers and the nearby contenders!

Yeah could be. I think we can all agree that no matter who wins, we're all looking forward to a new derby theme. Best of luck.

Re: Just because.....


..... so forgive me but I don't understand the point of this shirt. It is a good design and the lemmings (sp?) are cute but what do you mean by the text? I understand the point that the lemmings don't have to all follow the one in front of them off the cliff, but how does it apply to me and my leap year? I'm confused. Maybe I'm just making it too difficult. Congrats though on making the fog with your late entry. I'm a newby so I wasn't sure that was possible but you seem to have made it look easy. Good job!

Very static, for a very long time. I had to step away for a while, but was here for the 5 minutes that changed everything. You're safe iambe – you’ve always been in the hotness, and the night crowd (when I’m normally working) favors the Math. I didn’t realize this was your first shirt – that’s awesome! #1 the whole way through. Congrats!

Stonehenge and Optical showed their hands, but we still don’t know where the Giraffes are hiding. Looks like we’ll be waiting for the weekend to see how it all turns out.

Thanks! This is my interpretation from an earlier post, but you’re forgiven for not having read through all that:

If death and taxes are the only requirements in life, then Leap Day is optional. As the saying goes, “Just because everyone else is doing it....” and I’m applying that to Leap Day. Go ahead and have March 1st on a Friday this year, if you like.

Make of that what you will!

Yeah, despite all the talk earlier about this being a stale theme, it's turned really interesting!
Looks like math's way out front and then basically a 4 way tie according to shirtderbystats.
Come on lemmings!!!

Hmm, just went in for 3 Randoms, when I haven't bought any shirts lately (although still checking frequently) so what are the chances of liking them!?! Oh well, couldn't pass up the mystery!

It just knows that #4 has at least one more vote than #5, and that's what it shows. I guess there’s only one way to find out….


oops, I didn't read far enough back before my last comment... I see what you mean about the stats. The 4 way tie is very unlikely, wish we could tell how it was playing out! If the recent hotness is any indicator, giraffes may be in 4th. Or just my wishful thinking...

Re: Just because.....


Fantastic!
I am always calling my husband a lemming and it would be so fantastic to have a shirt just for him (and all the other shirt.wooters who buy one)
North Idaho huh? Eastern Washington here. Because I just like making random connections like that.
