This is a resubmission of yesterday's design. It was the opinion of the Woot! community that the thumbnail and shirt preview background colors weren't close enough, so here are both from made from the same template. Thanks for the input and votes!

FISH. O_O

ha ha I love the splashes of blues and reds with the yellow shirt. I guess the primary colors always draw in the eye.

I'm not a fan of the repetition of the copied vector splatters and I think they'd look far better if you just drew them out yourself instead of pasting the same ones on there over and over, but I love everything else and I'm glad you resubbed it. Revoted.

Sorry to see that this had to be resubmitted and fall behind in votes. Great design, though.

GMV, I think it'd be a successful design even without the bowl.

I think the bowl is necessary for the theme though. The bowl emphasizes the idea of a fire, since it's attempting to "put it out." At least that's how I see it. It's already kind of a stretch with it, but without it I think it would push it over to being not on theme.

I really, really want this shirt. Sad to see it's not in the fog. If it doesn't win this derby, I still want to see it *somewhere* so I can wear this hot mess.

THIS SHIRT IS PHENOMENAL
looks like it should be in an urban outfitters
whoever made this should just sell this on their own

Very cool illo and take on fire. I don't think I could pull off a yellow shirt very good, but still like it.

I love the design, not really seeing it in the 'fire' category completely though so it won't get my vote for this one. For a more fishy derby, I'd be all for it :p

I think if you read the derby description it says, "Give us your best fire depictions, fire aftermath, fire-inspired designs". While this isn't a fire depiction, it is fire-inspired and the play of colors and addition of the blue water makes it seem even more elemental. 'Firefox' and 'firefly' are only fire related in that they emit light and have 'fire' in their names. Maybe we could call this species of fish "firefish" to make it more obvious?

Have to agree here, though I'm guilty of the same thing myself, to save time. Great-looking design, though. I'd have to consider the purchase if it prints - especially since it's on lemon.

Can't disagree on 'Firefly'. I guess I also can't disagree with 'Firefox', oh wait... except for the fact that they are playing with fire.

As for this shirt... I think it totally deserves to print, in a different derby. It's a beautiful shirt. I just don't get how it has anything to do with fire. Nothing looks like it is, or was, on fire. Nothing in it could possibly start a fire. Fish, a bowl of water, splatters of red/orange/yellow/blue... these elements don't make me think of fire.
