There's no honor in telling artists that their art is 'freaking stupid looking', no matter how frustrated you might be. Then again, a troll probably doesn't care about honor in the first place.

Ramy, honestly I can count myself as one of the people that believes a style should not dominate the derbies, but this entry actually strikes me as a cute one. The colors are great, the art is clean, the fur detail is good, and the concept is cute. The only problem I have is the :D face, but only because it looks more like an emoticon than a face. ;)

Personally, I think he/she is a great artist; however, I really wish that CUTE would just find a spot under a tree somewhere and die a slow painful death. Hehe, in case you couldn't tell, I'm not one for "cutesy" designs myself, but I do understand that WINNING a derby involves catering to the interests of wooters, which can entail making art that is outside of your own personal preferences.

So, to the dooshbaggot that was doggin on my boy/girl ramy's artwork -

When you have won a derby, or at least come close to it, maybe then your comments might have the slightest semblance of credibility around here, but until then...

Grow the !@#$ up!

Thank you, come again.

..."says the [man?] with the thousand woot prints, " and absolutely nothing to give him credibility as a critic (and I use that word as lightly as possible) to back his assertions about the art of others, other than the fact that he has, quite crudely, attempted to create t-shirt designs, and perhaps some resentment over the fact that he was slighted when they were handing out creative/artistic genes to all the other kids...

Seriously, Adder is as artistically proficient as one of those monkeys that they try to teach to communicate with humans by drawing pictures with crayons. And I don't mean that in a mean way or anything, but it's just that he's "special". You know what I mean, like other people just do it a little easier than he can.

But to his credit, he has actually managed to piece together his crayon explosions into something that resembles a "design". No, no, I'm serious. Don't laugh. This did happen. I mean it, I am serious.

Granted, it's lack of coherency or anything even close to resembling an actual representation of something that exists made it hard to tell that it was "art", but the riddle was cracked. Scholars were at last able to unravel the mystery of the rudimentary visual phenomena known as Adder's "artwork", and realized that the seemingly random collection of lines and colors he has produced and labeled as "designs" are actually just the result of him sneezing while holding his little sister's crayons.

The woot community should appreciate the valuable resource they have in Adder. His trite ramblings on woot contest entries help to attract potential wooters to the site since they're entertaining, if nothing elese. They bring a smile to wooters faces with their child-like repetition and exaggeration of art terms that he picks from a hat that was given to him by a blind street merchant in Morocco.

Of course we can trust Adder's observations on art since he has actually Tried to make shirt designs before...

...A while ago,

With a stick,

And a copy of "genius's guide to creating T-shirts" in hand,

Under adult supervision,

And a draw by numbers activity book in the other hand,

In a room full of jackson pollock posters for inspiration,

While listening to girls just wanna have fun on his ipod,

And, of course, while asking his best friend DavidShenoda for creative pointers which he immediately disregards,

Choosing instead to throw rocks in frustration at the blank paper in front of him.

Adder, you put the A.D.D. in Adderxyu for sure. Keep up the good work, buddy!

Not that I'm familiar with anybody's work on Woot, but in terms of art history, great art is certainly not limited to "an actual representation of something that exist." At least if you're willing to let Pollock, or Picasso, or Moreau, or many other modern/post-modern artists into the mix.

Rothko painted emotions. You can represent somthing that exists, but not in a physical sense. Perhaps Pollack falls into that category - he and Rothko discussed art often.
