LARGE IMAGE

Ok! Here we go. Celebrate the infamy of Syndi Slain, Tevin Hammer and Rusty Nailze with this commemorative re-issue of the classic "Avengeful Death" tee. Known for invoking b-rated horror movie gore, Avengeful Death appears here, standing atop a mound of conquered zombie flesh.

I made this for my boyfriend Martin who loves zombies. And I love Martin...and zombies.

Please vote if you like my work!

Since this isn't picking up many votes, go ahead and tell me why you don't like this design? Is it too much?

Personally, this just isn't really my style. It's not something I would wear. I tend to like things that either have a design that appeals to me or has something clever and/or original about it. This design just isn't really my cup o' tea. Sorry I can't really give any helpful reasons.

Thanks for chiming in, I appreciate that! I think this design is an acquired taste for sure...I just wanted to try something new.

Keep it up. Eventually you'll find one that strikes a cord with people... and if not, at least you're doing designs that you like, hoho.

Mel, this my favorite design of the contest. The characters, concept and colors are off the charts!
I know the derby can be tough at times, but keep doing what you do. Your a fantastic artist.

I think it's great work, and if I viewed these derbies as an art contest, you would get my vote. However, it's just not something I would wear on a T-shirt.

I see a lot of entries in these derbies that I feel exactly the same about. This week's theme makes it even more difficult for me to find any shirts I would wear.

Ikonos71 you make a great point about the wearability. Though I can't pretend I wouldn't wear this, I completely understand that a lot of people wouldn't. Plus, maybe summertime isn't the right time for a design like this, because it is so dark, in color and theme. I knew there wouldn't be a lot metal/grunge themed stuff by designers so I figured I'd go for it. Once I got into it I decided to try to take it all the way...which may have been too far.

Drakxxx you're comments always make me smile! I tried to carry the gory horror torch for you while you drew the cute emo koalas...but I think I'll be leaving the severed limbs to you from now on...I can't promise though.

I also believe this to be one of the best designs in the derby, but almost didnt click on it bc of the thumb... maybe make the thumb of one of the band members so people can see the incredible detail of your work... GMV, keep submitting!!!

I always have a hard time coming up with which areas to crop for the thumbnail. I made some new ones. Take one down pass it around!

I am new to the woot shirt community so I am also curious why this hasn't picked up that many votes compared to some of the shirts that have 100/200 some votes that frankly are not that good. I just hope your spirits and professional pride aren't hurt. I would agree with you that Summer would have something to do with it and possibly the shirt color choice. It seems all of the earlier submissions have just been sitting at the top the whole week. Keep it up, hopefully you'll get a nod with a honorable mention!

I agree, love the design but I probably wouldn't wear it.

Estaff - I'm perfectly alright, don't worry. Thank you for all the words of encouragement! I'll be frank, I'm used to not winning. These derbies are a lot of fun for me and I won't be stopping any time soon. I really appreciate all of the feedback.
