Hmm... This looks pretty cool. However, I think that the image is too large. I'd like it better scaled down a little. Cool though.

I'd love to see a larger image of this.

Definitely a cool design, I also wouldn't mind seeing a larger image

That's a really nice painty texture.

Also wish it was a little smaller...but I like it. Like the colors as well. I'd probably buy one (and this is the first time I've actually voted)...hope it moves up.

It's Wednesday, (Yeah I know, I am posting this on Tuesday, but you are likely reading it on Wednesday or later) and it is time once again for the Great but Late list.

Scoot on over to the blog and check it out. That is if you want to.

Okay, check it out. I think that this had serious potential if it were submitted on Friday or Saturday and was on a different shirt color and if you spice up the background a bit and if we could see a larger image.whheeeeew.....that's a lot of and's I know. Either way it has potential.

Agreed... This is one of those designs that leaves you thinking that with some more work put on it, could really turn into something good. Altough is hard to tell, without seeing a larger image of the design.

thanks guys but this is my first entry and I don't know why you're asking for a larger picture isn't that the biggest one I can have up there?

Looks like you copy and pasted a Fender Stratocaster guitar and then distorted it in MS Paint.

That is the largest image you can put in the little display box and on the shirt itself. But a lot of artists will provide a link to a larger image posted somewhere else on the net, or post close up photos in the blog of the shirt for people to check out. You can also play with the shirt comp picture and put a larger image not on the shirt in the picture to show off the artwork, and put a small shirt comp in your picture just to show placement on the shirt. Check out some of the other entries, Drakxxx will usually do the close ups as his first post in his blog, bootboots will show you a large image of her art and a small shirt comp, and a lot of the artists will provide a link. Thats what everyone means :-) I think this is really well done, especially for a first entry. Wooters just like to scrutinize artwork and look at all the finer details you put in!

thanks katfin25, appreciation for you has been earned if it doesn't get towards the top (Which most likely will be the case) do you think it would be wise to enter again on another derby that this would apply in?

aww Thanks! jeje I think you're image is great, if you had entered it on Friday or Saturday I think you would see it closer to the top considering how many votes its already garnered in just over a day. If it does apply for another derby I would suggest entering it again - just be sure it really applies to the derby (wooters will remember the image and will not be happy if it doesn't apply, I know there is at least 1 image in this derby that is a re-entry and there was one that was in the last derby that was a re-entry - but both applied and people were happy to see them again). Also, you will need to alter the image in some way to re-enter it, otherwise it will get rejected because it will be considered a direct re-entry from a previous derby. That can mean changing colors, resizing, adding other elements, changing placement, etc. Another great place to get feedback prior to entry Thursday night/Friday morning is on the thread for the derby. There are some links in there with some other helpful information that isn't on the woot! page itself, but stuff that artists have learned through entering themselves.

There is also the possiblity of an honorable mention from the woot! staff, if that were to happen you cannot re-enter your image because they keep all the HM's for a doubletake derby down the line where people then vote for which image they like best out of those that didn't make it the first time around. If you re-enter and you got an HM then you nullify your entry into the doubletake derby. I wouldn't hold your breath for the HM though because its totally up to woot! staff and I have no idea what meets their requirements - A lot of entries that a large number of people think are great won't get picked up, but others will. I just wanted to let you know about that option!
