Indeed, you do suck at art.

But I still think you are oversimplifying it a bit. The gears need to go somewhere and the smoke needs to come from someplace. Otherwise it fits the theme, apparently.

Woot gets to decide what fits and what doesn't. It is their derby after all.

In my opinion, strict adherence to the true Steampunk style would greatly limit the design possibilities. And then it would not be much of a contest, either. Well maybe an art contest, but that is not the point of this site.

Haha! Good stuff.

I feel like a lot of designers who weren't really familiar with steampunk before the topic was announced didn't really take time do their research before designing, wanting to get something in as soon as the derby opened. Gears and steam probably just sprang easily into the design.

Anyway, GMV

I think what is missing is that the thumbnail actually focuses on the steampunk part of the design, therefore giving some sort of implication people were voting for something steampunk. It would have been far superior to just have your thumbnail show a random other image on the shirt so they could vote for it without realizing how on theme it was.

With the cumulative gravity of the ironies of adder's submission and those in bluchez's comment, I almost feel like this entry could collapse upon itself and create a rip in space-time.

If this entry gets hit by the rejectionator, all bets are off: an instant black hole of irony will be created, from which no off-theme entries can escape.

(I should be on drugs. At least that would explain why I'm making so little sense.)

Only thing is, it's not on a color Woot prints. So sad.

Awesome! GMV!

You can ride with me, or you can find your own path. Don't stab me in the back after I've cleared the way.

It's on white...just the background of the comp isn't on a color they have. Thumbnail and shirt comp are on white.

Where are the cute animals? Oh wait.. Well. It still needs MORE smoke and MORE gears.

If you really want to up the steampunkness of this, throw a top hat and a monocle on that Gear. Geeze. :V

I'm going to vote for this because, on the off chance that it doesn't get rejected for shirt colour, I really want to see if Woot will actually print it.

So seriously, I would buy this. And it would mark the last shirt I buy from woot ever. *still bitter of Drak's rejection*

Why doesn't the gear have a pressure gauge? With all that smoke i'd be worried the gear might need one.

That, or a set of goggles with a valve on it.

I must have this!!! I simply love how it looks like the smoke is passing through the hole in the gear. Amazing artistry, do not sell yourself short!

You are f-in awesome. Sure you can be a bastard at times, but that is what makes you..you. Keep it up. Oh, next time, amongst the other great suggestions, put the design slightly out of "printable" area range.

Freakin brilliant. I would LOVE to see something like this get in the fog and watch the chaos that follows!

The guys at the new SONIC drive-in told me to have a supersonic day. And I did!
