Mr. Gentry.

This concept is pure gold. I will have to buy one and smelt it down into jewelry, so I can make a killing at the pawn shop

Hopefully this breaks 1k votes like the Zelda shirt. This is seriously flawless. Details spectacular, the design is simple, olive shirt color (best one IMO.)

But what takes the cake is the face on that sloth, holy lmaoshittingwtfroflbbq

Wow Tgentry. You're ability to combine awesome concepts with superb artwork may be unparalleled on this site. Some have the ideas but not the art, some have art but not ideas, but this design is awesome.

Scrumtrillescent. You have shown me better uses for $10 than I had previously known, as well giving me a strange, monomaniacal fascination that shall drive me into sleepless nights of research and long, adventurous journeys for the sole purpose of recreating this scene with actual nature.

Oh, I am so there. Right down to the detail of the sloth's claws pressed against the cheetah's fur. I'm a consistent fan of your work!

You need to have made at least one purchase from a woot site before you can vote.

Re: The Fastest Animals on Earth


funny concept but a number of things bother me about this design:
cheetahs are light yellow/brown, not dark orange/red ... ? their ears are rounded, not pointed, and this one appears to have some kind of ridiculous overbite. overall the cheetah's face is really strange looking.

I'll keep all that in mind next time I'm drawing a cartoon cheetah.

You realize the sloth isn't completely accurate either...right? Also, I thought the point of cartooning was to distort features. ^_~

yeah sure, but when you're drawing a cartoon animal, it should at least have the distinct features of that animal so that people recognize it as such. That's why I didn't mention the sloth- it's well done and has a great expression. In this case all you really need are the spots, but like I said, the face just doesn't look right at all.

Who wasn't clear that it was a cheetah? I don't see where the problem is. It has an underbite and white eyes because it's a cartoon character. I went with the color I did because it had to double as the red on the sloth to keep it under 6 colors. Sorry you don't approve, but I'm quite happy with it as is. If you're determined to have a realistic cheetah you're welcome to draw one yourself.

Re: The Fastest Animals on Earth


I think this is my favorite in the derby. (Although I do love the wave one too!) TG- This is so clever. It just wouldn't have the same appeal without the sloth! That was such a great idea to add him.....and the title just makes me laugh.

I love everything about the shirt! The colors are great too! Hope you make it up to the fog, or at least get noticed as a Best Loser. ( )

Thanks KLS! I doubt the fog is possible at this point. Not sure what's with the sudden boost of votes, but they are appreciated. And I never mind being a Best Loser pick. Anyone come up with a Worst Loser site yet?...

Do you mean a "worst winner" site? That would be pretty funny!

Sloths are awesome. Someday they will take over the world and wear designer shoes and I'll be firends with them and live in their slothy mossy maggot filled backs and ride them (slowly) threw the forest.

Re: The Fastest Animals on Earth


I think this is my favorite tgentry design so far, and I'm a huge fan. (Hell, Eating Healthy was the shirt that turned me on to shirt.woot, and I still lament not buying before it was reckoned!) This is wonderfully designed (artistic license and all) and very wearable. Everyone will be able to get a kick out of these very different animals co-habitating (barely). I can't wait to buy this shirt this weekend!

Looks like you knew it was a cheetah.

Also, I WANT THIS SHIRT. I'm going to be so sad if it doesn't make the fog -- this is worth staying up till midnight for. Want.

Okay, this needs to be in the fog. I'm not wanting three Cho shirts as winners. Let's spread the love. Plus, I've always wanted a shirt with a frightened looking sloth on it.
