Is this supposed to be on creme? 'Cause it's looking pale grey on my monitor, unlike the other creme shirts...

AAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH........ whatever.

Re: MINE!


I really love this, but I wonder if it will print ok with all of the thin line weights... I am wrong in thinking shirt.woot has said lines need to be a minimum of 1pt?

Anyway, GMV if they can print it well enough!

It's creme, not sure why it would show up differently on your monitor. If woot sees it differently too, it's supposed to be creme. I can resubmit if rejected, but hopefully it's clear.

I didn't use any brush smaller than 3 or 4 pts when I was working, and although I shrunk the final image down by about 10%, I don't think there's very many lines that wouldn't print. But I'm not really the expert on that one.

I usually love, love, love all your designs. You are my favorite, by far, out of all the designers that enter the derby. But, you have no idea how incredibly happy I am the your design is on a cream shirt. A CREAM SHIRT! Woooooohooooooo!

Really nice! I love the round over all shape! very clever and really well executed! This is one of the rare times where I say to myself I could see me wearing that shirt. If i have the money, I'll buy one WHEN it wins!

Very nice, I like it. Got my vote.

On the flip side, I am surprised no one bitched about the creme color, yet.

TG, though there are many great designs on here all of the time, I feel like there are few that I would wear as shirts. I love your design and I am a big fan of it as a shirt as well. GMVFS! (for sure)

Re: MINE!


Hey everyone, thanks for the support and comments. I'm out of town until Sunday night, so best of luck to everyone!

And to answer a question above, no it's not based on any King in particular, but I did have a painting of Henry the VIII up when I was drawing it, so there may be a little influence there.

Nice design. It looks like Bill Clinton on the editorial page cartoons, tub o' butter face, beady eyes.

When I wrote this, I typed "f a t" and the software changed it to "tub o butter" that's weird.
I had to put spaces between the letters to get f a t to show up in the reply.

It's a word filter. There are many words that get filtered into other stuff, so if you notice that everyone seems to be talking about pancakes a lot, or everyone is giggling or talking about "Nevermore," know that it may just be the filter rather than some arcane woot-esque language.

Here I am again, punching my Tgentry frequent voter card. And I am STILL lamenting the loss of the miner shirt. This one and the conquistador makes two shirts for me this week. That is of course, if they both win and those damned monkeys say die.

Still in the fog! And yet I have the sinking sensation that it won't last. tub o' butter kings just can't go the long haul against cute pigs, monkeys, and penguins. It's been proven time and time again. But I hold out hope.

TG - great design as usual. Quick critique from a layperson - why does the Red Sea look like the Red Lake on the globe?

GMV for various reasons! 1. I agree that the monkeys and pigs should burst into flames 2. I would actually wear this 3. For some reason I like buying multiple shirts in a derby and I'll definitely get Cho's penquins if it's available. Oh yes, and tub o' butter kings are a strange strange fetish of mine...or is it geography...I get confused sometimes.

first time I've seen a cream colored shirt I'd wear :3 (I normally buy darker colors)
But I love the very simple colors you used. It really adds to it and I really hope it stays in the fog.

I love this design a ton. Colonialism/Imperialism: The ultimate definition of Greed! I also love how the king is inching his hand closer to Africa... A sign of bad things to come.

Gah...the voters here are idiots. This just got un-fogged and then re-fogged. What the heck people? Are you serious? Do you really need another freaking penguin shirt?

This is by far the best entry I have seen in ANY of the derbies. The work on it is amazing and people are just infatuated. Are there just a bunch of preteens voting? If this isn't printed here, I will undoubtedly love a copy, but still. Come on, guys!

Thirded! This shirt is amazing. It's well done artistically, the colors are perfect, and it's the best representation of greed. I was really hoping to stay up to 1:AM tonight to buy this shirt. The fact that that isn't going to happen makes me very upset with the voters.

I'm not going to say what I really want to here, but I am really bummed out about this not being printed in this derby.

I will watch to see if you (tgentry) will put it up for sale with Best Losers (or similar) in 60 days.. (hopefully) ((PLEASE!!))

(personally I think that one of the other shirs, ---bleep---, should not have been in the fog. Yours was better.) Sadly, I forgot to vote though.

Still single, can't imagine why.

TGentry, this not being in the fog is a crime.

The last thing Woot needed was more childish shirts of aquatic, flightless birds living almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere ( thanks Wikipedia ).

Shame, damn shame.

I appreciate the support. I actually liked all of the fog shirts, so it makes it not AS bad. Although being 4th or 5th three weeks in a row is getting a little old. Just going to have to try harder.

Our family is excited about the fog, but we're also disappointed that your shirt dropped, as did zenne's. We're hoping that there are some great 2 or 3 way ties... ;)

Thankfully, I guess, we wanted the 4th place shirts for the past couple weeks, so we're happy there's more than 1 in the fog we like.

Looking forward to what you have coming for the next derby!

no no no, clearly if you try harder and make a better shirt less people will vote for it.. if you want to win draw a fluffy monkey riding an ostrich or something.

I mean, I feel bad insulting the other shirts, but in my mind yours is leaps and bounds above the others, and it's hard not to be bitter... I just don't think a cute little penguin/pig/hermit crab makes a very wearable shirt. not my style..

I guess that's why democracy doesn't work.. can I just be the shirt.woot.dictator?

Democracy seems to be working as far as picking shirts that will sell, but this is exactly why there has been an appeal to the woot gods to choose at minimum a 4th derby shirt of their liking (regardless of number of votes) for Monday. Judging by sales on current M-Th shirts, they'd probably do well to pick a 5th for Tuesday....

Re: MINE!


How did this not stay in the fog? So our choices are, ANOTHER penguin, a snail, and a pig???? Wow, I wonder what animals/cartoons will take next weeks derby? Oh well, I can stay away from woot until Monday because I know I won't be missing out on anything wearable for someone over the age of 6. They should call the derby 'Woot's animal/cartoon Derby'. It would be more fitting. See you guys on Monday.
