Kind of Similar to "The Lion King" don't you think? But still great design.

New here but I love your work walmazan.

But in all honesty how is this not a pop culture "premise" reference?

This is super cute and clever (as are all your designs)! I agree with what others have said though, that this might be a little too pop culture-y to forego rejection this week:/

Sorry Walmazan, it was a nice design, but it was a little too pop culture. Sorry also that I missed most of the prederby thread, kinda surprised that no one said anything there about it.

Still is cool though and hope you find another venue for it to be submitted too.

I was confused about how this was a pop culture reference, but I see it now. Too bad, too.

I made a comment in the pre-derby thread saying it might get rejected, but then flip flopped since "The Lion King" didn't come up with the concept of king of the jungle.

I guess this shows that they are going to lean towards rejection if it falls in the gray area.

Walmazan is great though so I'm sure he'll be submitting another great design soon (please!).

It was the pose that killed it.

I have a shirt catalog, y'all!

That really is a bummer that you got rejected Wences. I am still pulling for "Forbidden Love". Hopefully you're are able to get another design up into the derby this week.

Bring out the chess board (forbidden love).

Is this the first time in shirt.woot history that a Derby Winning artist has been rejected on the day of his/her triumph?
