Re: Sponge Attack!


What’s in a sponge? Bacteria, bleach, cleaners, fungus, and the evil dryness that eventually consumes all water inside… all the things that pure water hates. So when the sponge comes out, the pure water droplets run for their little lives! Run, little droplets run! Escape! Oh no, Steve, Bruce, and Horace were caught! Is anyone else going to make it to the safety of the glass?

This is an awesome design! Week after week I am impressed by your submissions SkekTek! If I wasn't a broke college student I would own a lot more cool shirts. Keep up the good work!

I'm not very creative but I decided to enter this derby just for the fun of it. I drew my design up in paint so it isn't high quality like some of the others but maybe someone will like it. Please check it out and let me know your thoughts. I was going for kind of a cartoony style... ok... actually, I'm just not much of an artist so stick figures and cartoon hearts it is for me.

Just keep doing it. My designs early on were really bad, but they got better with practice. Since you are a college student, you probably have access to cheap Illustrator/Photoshop, so I'd try to get that before you get out of college. It'll never be as cheap. Or, just get Inkscape, GIMP, or other cheap program (these are free). They make your job much easier.

Whoops... out of the fog. Was fun while it lasted! Keep voting for this, folks! I would like to stay top 10 in this excellent derby!

Thanks for the tip. I will look into using Inkscape or the GIMP maybe for any future designs I come up with.

Also, I just noticed the little droplet at the back that tripped. He looks so terrified. Poor guy. I kind of feel sorry for him :|. Good luck getting back into the fog.

Designs like these aren't usually my cup of tea...but oh boy. The expression on the face of that poor droplet of water...it's just priceless. If this wins, I'm definitely going out of my comfort zone of shirts with text on them and getting this one!

The faces are absolutely hilarious!! I love this shirt becuase it makes me laugh everytime I look at those poor drops compared to the almost sadistic face of the sponge, I really hope this gets back into the fog soon. Great job! ;-)

So close to the fog still, yet so far away I'm still rooting for you! I like this design more and more each time I see it. Even if it is on a vampire...

Also, thanks again for the tip on programs. I tried GIMP but it was so confusing. I couldn't make it do anything I wanted so I almost gave up and decided that paint would do for now. Instead though i tried Inkscape which turned out to be very user friendly and reminded me a lot of AutoCAD. I made another design because it kept me up last night thinking about it and my girlfriend got jealous and made one also. . lolol. This is a bad addiction...........................................

Are the shadows/arms black or dark brown? For some reason, it's showing up as dark brown on my screen (although it looks blackish from some angles)

The arms are Hexachrome Black pantone. When the comp is converted into the RGB colors, it has a tendency to look a bit brownish. The color tones are black, white, lt blue, dk blue, yellow and dark yellow.

Thanks for liking this folks! If I don't crack the top three, no worries. It eventually will be printed by Woot or (after 60 days of no love) by me. Definitely.

Keep the votes going, and feel free to grab my sig image and link if you want to spread the love!

If it doesn't make it, let me know when you print them. I 100% am in for one and a buddy of mine also wants one. Here's to hoping the sponge chases lil nessie out of the fog!!

So true. If I do print it myself, think TWO THINGS:

1. V-necks. Everyone loves v-necks!
2. Long sleeves. No-one has enough long sleeves!

I'm clawing for 5th ahead of half a glass of water (of course EVERYONE wants to wear a half-glass of water on their chest). If you can, tell your friends to jump all over this design to give it a chance. Otherwise, it'll be a long 60 days before you see it again...

So what keeps someone from making a new account everytime he/she buys a new woot and then using each account to vote for his/her design??

Also, I can't believe the glass passed you! Everyone needs to come on and vote because this shirt is awesome!

Glad to hear that! Unfortunately it was unable to pass the owl yesterday, so it's on its last day of sales... Hope my sponge can make a push past glass, but seems the drive-by voters want a glass on their chests more. Sigh.

Was in Hawaii for field season from Dec to Jan, and up until a week ago, they didn't ship there! My wife bought a few shirts in the meantime tho.

Okay, just shirts then. I couldn't see them doing the other two also. Cool beans, but I still won't be able to convince my boyfriend to move to Hawaii if woot doesn't ship there, nor will I be keen on not having wine.woot at my fingertips. ^_^

I'm sorry to hear that. I've yet to see Michigan not on that list. Lucky me. ^_^ Small consolation for living here, I know, but it's something. I mean, Indiana? Yeah... (My boyfriend hated Indiana when he went to school there. I personally don't know anything about it except the snow removal system--especially near Purdue--stinks.)

Come on guys.... we need to ensure this makes it into the fog. I can't believe so many of the SAME designs (different colors) are in the fog. Three shirts are almost identical in nature and look. WHY????!

I'd say that only the waves are similar, but even then when you look at the placement and shirt color, you can see why they'd appeal to different voters. I think Jaden and SHekTek are both competing for the same cuteness vote. Right now, I think the designs are ranked Zenne's Wave, James' Wave and Jaden's Nessie. The Koi are definitely in 4th.

But, man.... 6 designs already over 500 votes is really impressive. WOW!

I like this design too, but I don't see how you can say that ANY of the designs currently in the fog are at all similar, except that they all involve water... which is kinda this week's theme.

They are stylistically different, though two have a similar "wave-crashing" appeal. And the koi and nessie are definitely different styles. Trust me, I want this design printed too, but due to my sponge not reliably topping the hotness, ain't gonna happen in THIS derby... Hopefully it'll be up again in a best of contest...
