Of course my first choice would have been asphalt :P Green looked pretty good too, came down to a coin toss.

Re: Perpetual Emotion


It's really well drawn, but I could see this as a sticker or poster, not as a shirt.

For whatever reason I think it would look real odd when someone wears it, and I'm speaking as a guy. I can't imagine what it would look like if a big breasted woman had smiling silver orbs hanging off their fun-bags.

Well, I actually can picture that, I think I saw that in the porno when Tinman gets funky with Dorothy.

Anyways, yeah, nice work though.

ya, as a girl . . I have tshirt artwork going across my chest all the time. You can't worry about it 24/7 as a designer, otherwise you'll loose a lot of good designs ideas.
I absolutely love the Spring-a-tron . . .does it look like he's grabbing something of mine. . .sorta. Does it stop me from wearing it, NO. It's too good of a shirt to worry about that.

There's one thing I don't like about it: It looks like the orbs aren't centered up properly on the bar, because you've got the bar centered with respect to the orbs as they are in the illustration, not as they would be if they actually motionless. Do you follow what I mean?

The other shirt on this idea gets that aspect right; the ball that's out there is swinging outside the fixture. The perspective offered by the other design is nice, too. However, the emotions on this one are much better, and just downright hilarious! It gets my vote over the other design, but this fixture positioning issue still irks me.

I hear ya. I was a little worried about copyright issues (if there are any). So I altered it slightly. I scribble as a hobby and I'm no lawyer. I just know there's so many issues about copyrighting here I didn't want to push it (I also didn't want to risk a "This shirt was done at "name of website" thing)

Ya, I'm starting to see more and more dislike for the light blue. . . I knew there was something against white here, didn't know this color was up there too. :/ Good to know. Though I have a few baby blue shirts and they look pretty good.

You can submit as many as you like in the same derby, but it's best to take down all but the top vote getter after you see which one is most popular. Otherwise you risk splitting the vote.

Hrm, I think for several reasons I'm going to just leave this shirt and not make a version 2. Show the little guys some more love! :P

I have no idea how this has stayed in the fog since the derby opened and tgentry's has gotten knocked out. IMO the other shirt that's similar to this one is much better drawn, and yet this is still in the fog? And it's on baby blue, yuck.

Ugh, I have too many baby blue shirts and I don't want one anymore! But frankly, baby blue does suit the design. Just too bad I won't buy it simply because if I keep wearing bb shirts, friends would think I'm weird. -_-;; GMV!

Re: Perpetual Emotion


i like the design, but I am not a big fan of the color. IMO, It would be much better if you change the color- let's say- to bright yellow (for the design) on olive shirt.

I'll certainly keep those color combinations in mind for the next design, thanks! I'm going to ride this one out as is. I've got an interesting mix of like/dislike for this shirt and the color. I never knew how some people felt about baby blue. It's an awesome color! ;)

Re: Perpetual Emotion


This shirt is genius and you are too. I really do love it, in every aspect. It is truly a great shirt among mediocrity. As much as I can appreciate good art, I appreciate a great joke even more, and you have captured both. This one is blowing the other half assed (talking about cho and his weird ass fan base) shirt entries out of the water in my opinion. I hope you win and it gets up on the list of top twenty and stays there for quite some time, once again showing that the entertaining shirts have way more selling power than any other.

Dang it. I saw this in your signature before I saw the derby and searched all of woot! to find it to buy - I even googled your username to see if it was printed somewhere else. I can't vote yet, I've been unimpressed with recent offerings, and this was (hopefully still is) going to be my first purchase.

I'm wearing a shirt the exact color this shows on my monitor - Love it!

Re: Perpetual Emotion


This is a nail biter!!! I keep watching shirtderbystats.com, which is usually a very good predictor,, but I think this one is too close to call. You can tell that, because this one and the 2 Cho designs (not wave) keep moving in and out of the fog as people play the " move the votes around" game. I don't think we will really know the final results until things go on sale.

Re: Perpetual Emotion


I am new to Woot and noticed the few derbies I have followed that the designs I love are almost always on shirt colors I hate. I am debating if I could make myself wear this color shirt. I tend to wear black and jewel tones, very few pastels. They make me look sick. But then, what looks good on me does not work for everyone either.

The expressions on the orbs are great. I know someone like each of them. I hope it makes the cut just on the principle. Then I will most likely debate getting it until it is sold out.

Thanks. Trust me, no more baby blue for me If you like the art, this tends to be my style, so check back weekly!
It may or may not stay in the fog (the back and for is really very funny) but 1-3 seem pretty solid (wave, newton/tree and army men, not listed in any particular order)

Well, if it does not get printed this week, I NEED you to resub it next week. See, the ball on the far right represents my 3-year-old and the four on the left are his siblings. It's perfect for MY Mother's Day ;) and if it does get printed this week (or next), then I will wear it on Mother's Day. Surely there is some other way to tie it to mom. Hmmmmmmmmmm.
