I am now confident that Cho or a fan-faithful has multiple acounts to sway the votes. I am sorry but there is no way that in the prime of the night on a saturday that an entry can recieve 40 votes. Obviously someone here is cheating.

good lord. do you have any idea what kind of traffic woot gets at midnight? 40 votes is nothing...and happens to the leaders every weekend. Woot needs to start offering tin foil hats to some of you. And since you are obviously blind as well...you do see that this is only THIRD in the hotness and that genome has over 50 votes in the same period right?

Seriously, this cho conspiracy carp is so frigging tired.

Why is that hard to believe?It appears Shirt.woot gets on average 1000 hits per million people per day.

Alexa Stats Here.

Chances are it could be that he is a damn fine artist. I for one always wanted a t-shirt that was entirely plaid, but I will settle with some than not. Besides I was addicted to NES.

cho what do you do with all the money you win? If you could successfully do this every week, that becomes an incredibly steady income

I would love to agree with you because I get tired of seeing an animal design win every week, but I really don't think anyone with eyes could deny that Cho has incredible talent. This shirt is amazingly well drawn. I won't vote for it because I would never buy something like this, and I only vote for things that I would definitely buy, but it's going to win. And it deserves to. I just wish he'd draw something besides an animal for a couple weeks. There's no way he's cheating though. Everyone knows woot has the most hits when a new shirt is first up for sale. So, why wouldn't that be the best time to enter a shirt in the derby? More people will see it and vote. He's just smart. Not a cheater.

cho not doing animals would be like monet doing portraits, or picasso doing landscapes. He most likely could do something else but animals are his thing.

He has talent, I just think some people are frustrated seeing the same artists win every week. Which is also probably why Woot upped the prize money to $1000 to try to attract new designers.

I love seeing artists stretch themselves to things outside what they are known for. Nothing wrong with sticking to your strengths, but Picasso would've never become a cubist if he stuck with his "blue period."

I'm sure Cho would produce fabulous work whatever he tried his hand at. Ducks included. :-)

this is true but as said by others, anything from the norm and you chance not winning the derby. Daily entry maybe.

Re: 1984: Duck Hunt {RESUB}


I have a question, is that darkest of brown color used for cross shading and the eyes just the shirt color shining through? If it is, then the shirt has 6 spot colors plus the shirt, if not, then its 7. Also, does anyone know if the light-gun is trademarked by nintendo. Hopefully none of this stuff has too much bearing, as it is a fantasticly executed design.

So, you are saying he must stick to animals lest he not win the derby? I think Cho wins/places in the derby each week off his name alone. Talent or not, he has fans, loyal fans at that. That being said, I'm not denying he has incredible drawing skills, but I think he could enter anything at this point, and it would still win/place in every derby. It always does. Even if it's a design that isn't very wearable. People will vote/buy just because Cho drew it and Cho seems to have a lot of fans. AGAIN, I am not saying he isn't good at what he does. People are just a lot like sheep and follow the herd, in this case the majority. Sheeple.

And if it's the same artists winning every week, there isn't much motivation for new artists to try to enter the Derby. It also cheapens the entire concept of the Derby.

I don't think Cho needs to do animals. But neither is it just because of his name - his designs are consistently amazing and, whether you agree or not, consistently wearable. You may not like animals on shirts, but a great deal of people do.

Believe it or not, most people vote based on the DESIGN, not the designer. Look at the people commenting - for the most part, it's the same names over and over again. Most voters don't even know who these designers are - they just pop in and vote on a few designs, then check out until the results are put up. If they see something they particularly like, they might leave a generic "oh wow!" comment - but aside from the vocal minority, most of the voting wooters have no clue who is designing what.

Yes, Cho has a lot of fans. That's because Cho is a great designer. If he put up a crappy design, people wouldn't vote for it just because it's Cho's.

If you want to argue that people are like sheep, you should point to the fog and the hotness, because many people will only look at and vote on those top designs, leaving many other great entries lost at the bottom.

And it should be noted that Cho doesn't actually place in every derby.

Close, but not quite. If sub-par work is winning every week, there isn't much motivation for new artists to try to enter the Derby. That is true a sad majority of the time, and I assure you that as long as the work in the fog is well-done (like Cho's, Fable's and Zenne's typically is, for instance) the artists are happy and encouraged. I think most people entering would like this to be more of a meritocracy and less of a contest of who can come up with the most popular cultural reference.

The fact that the voting trends have forced even those talented artists to chase pop culture references is what cheapens the derby.

Quality and artsy are not synonymous. Other people have complained about animal shirts, cartoon shirts, funny shirts, slogan shirts and nerd shirts. Consider my perspective as someone who likes all those types of shirts, but who wishes that voters had a better eye for the higher quality examples.

People frustrated with the same artists winning every week need to reflect on the purpose of the derby. It's purpose is to print the three best shirts, and while it usually falls flat of this goal, the fact is that the people who get printed most often are the ones who bring high quality design with high quality concept.

Or, to break it down another way, "he has talent, but" is saying that talent shouldn't be a basis on quality. It is. You want fewer prints by an artist, you get other good artists. You want more Limes In Coconuts, you go to another site.

Indeed. Even within woot itself, you can see quality differences. "Boston Party" was a clever and slick play on a popular saying, while "Best thing since" not only looked like a mirror image, but used weaker, more awkward wording. "Pockets of Spring" was pretty nondescript and clipart-y compared to Tgent's lush and artistic "Watch it Grow." "Angry Day" not only trumps most designs as simple as it is, but the concept itself is made stronger by the sheer whimsical nature of the admittedly hasty-looking animals.

And to be captain annoying, there are also other sites where they showcase unartistic gimmick shirts. Based on most dailies, I'd say woot isn't that place either.

True, but you're kind of disagreeing with yourself on the purpose. Woot always prints the three best shirts, since they define "better" as having more votes. The Adder or haxrox standard for "better" is reflected in the form of one vote, like everyone else's, and the aggregate is woot's "better".

That's an excellent way to state the case. If someone says "he has talent," they should just stop - he has talent, and that's what matters.

I disagree with that last statement though - Lime in the Coconut is a genious shirt. It's clever (in a "why didn't I think of that?" kind of way), it's simple and well-designed, it references a hilarious song - what's not to love?

Re: 1984: Duck Hunt {RESUB}


Here's my theory, Cho wins because he produces a lot of designs within the first day. Typically I see 3 a derby, which means he has lots of ideas.

So basically.

lots of ideas + quick turnaround + good steady design skills = steady wins.

My 9 to 5 gets in the way of implementing this formula for myself but some day...

Jenny, he draws animals because 1- he draws them well and 2- they sell. If people wanted to buy pictures of kitchen appliances, he would probably draw them instead. In capitalism, catering to the customer is seen as a virtue (i.e the customer is "always" right).

So I disagree with you. People buy his stuff, not just because he drew it, but because he drew it for THEM.

Now, he may not see it that way. And you may have a problem with what the average voter wants. Many of us do. But this is what woot is today, and the guys in Carrollton seem to be OK with it.

I think the darkest hue is the shirt color. So, there shouldn't be an issue.

So all those little brown lines? those are the shirt.

Wow, you're actually right.

Unless the computer screen is tricking me, I easily noticed 7 colors ...



I could be wrong though, I'm pretty darn tired right now.

*cough* shirt color *cough* And, I'm not sure why 5 and 7 both point to the same spot? The gray highlights on the bill appear to be the gray from the gun, so there should not be two lines there.

ah you're right, apparently there were other colors available later on. I see this one on wikipedia. The ones that shipped in the first systems were definitely grey and dark grey with the red trigger

Oh James....should I admit that I had a huge crush on Ponch? You guys already know that I was born in 1969, so while in school we had to write to a person or business and request something from them. I was one of the few students that got a response to their letter. He (well, his publicity folks) sent a couple of head shots to me. This wasn't one of the pictures, but it brought back memories from that whole CHIPS era.

Your screen is playing tricks. He already took it down and removed the 7th color. Now it's 6 + shirt.

I think I had the gray one also (pretty sure...and I think I still do somewhere), but there was definitely an orange one too.

I remember playing the arcade version of this game called "Vs. Duck Hunt" and it was fun! It was really funny when I shot the dog by accident, then it scolded me as it sometimes jumped up in the air while trying to chase the ducks out. Damn you for reminding me of my age! ;_;

This is a great stat against your point. Name one other designers who has 4:3 ratio of non-printed desings to printed ones.
I'm not assuming anything with this point other than to invalidate yours.

You are misunderstanding the stat. The stat wasn't a comment on total entries, only high placing entries (entries in top 10).

It might be copyrighted, but the gun that the duck is holding is not the same as the actual light gun - the only real similarity is the colour. Someone posted a photo of the light gun earlier - take a look and compare. The design is quite different. =)

ducks killed my whole family. i am the last of my lineage.

they are pure evil. i think an innate human ability to be able to sense evil. i think thats why the duck disturbs you.

i hate em too.

except on this shirt. this shirts cool.

Re: 1984: Duck Hunt {RESUB}


Sorry im a newbie to shirt.woot but i have no idea who Cho is, but I still think this design is sweet. Isnt Cho Harry Potter's love interest? I take it Cho has been the designer of several sweet woot shirts. Oh and I dont think he is the only person that likes to draw animals we have a pothead lion today on woot and an unpatriotic eagle yesterday and all the derby winners last week were animals. Maybe this speaks more about the shirt.woot community. We love animals...
