I'm glad you went with the gray and white look with this one. Great design.

This is even sweeter now that the "monster" dress between his legs is fixed! That "thing" was enough to scare any girl! lol
GMV!

Thanks everybody that commented and voted so far. This was a tough one to crank out before noon today. I hope you all enjoy it.

Re: ROBOT TALES


This came out nice. I was a little concerned since the image you showed us in the prethread was more like a digital painting than a print-ready design. However, this still works well. Good job!

Awesome. Still wishing for just a touch of color, but I still hear this design bigtime. One quibble, that I didn't catch in pre=derby threads. I wish, wish, wish, that the robot didn't have the suggestion of a male face. That makes it a guy in a suit for me. And I can't unsee it.

Robbie the Robot called, he wants you to stop ripping him off.

i'm not seeing it. maybe if your attention to detail was as thick as your sarcasm then the world would be a better place.

A really strong image with lots of well executed touches Kasey. It very effectively evokes a bigone (or future) era.

Re: ROBOT TALES


I love everything except the fact that it is so large on the shirt...
although it is in the fog so I guess my opinion isn't too big of a deal lol

Really? Glass domed robot carrying some unconscious person with both of its arms.

Have you ever heard of a trope before? Robots and monsters carrying off damsels in distress was a staple of sci-fi posters.





Forbidden Planet actually came after both those films, which means it wasn't even the first to use that kind of image.







Seriously, this design is an homage a very general sci-fi image, not a ripoff of any one film. Do some research before you pull out the snark.

My buddy and I just recently watched Planet Outlaws with Buck Rogers and it got me into a retro sci-fi kick - i need this shirt to wear to movie nights!

Hooray, a KaseyFleming design! I'm personally a huge fan of your work, and this one is absolutely no exception. Love the very retro feel, but still with your own signature [gorgeous] style.

I'm crushed to see this has slipped from the fog already. Woot voters need a smack 'round the earhole for that. x(

This is bogus that this isn't in the fog. That's all I can really say about it.

Amazing work as always Kasey.

It pains me that this isn't fogged. Best design of the derby!

It's painful that in this derby, something like "Go Fetch" would supplant this. As in, people, lots of them, might look at both designs and say that this one is inferior. Especially with this theme.

I hope to see this design up at Threadless someday . It's just beautifully done, and in all honesty, it deserves to print somewhere that can really do the fine shading justice. Great work, Kasey!!!!

[sigh] the Woot demographic continues to baffle, frustrate, and disappoint. Please do let us know if this prints elsewhere once the rights revert back to you. Any other site would be foolish not to snap this design up.

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • I know you're kinda busy with your elves right now.

While it's difficult to break in on threadless, the print of "LES FILLES L'ESPACE"/"there's... SOMETHING... out here" gives me hope that this might have a shot there.
