Quite literal.

Clever idea, but the rock looks only irritated by the paper. While I get that may be the joke of the futility of paper against rock in a real situation, I think it would work better if the rock was as scared as the other two.

Clearly, rock is the champ! lol... I do think I'd like it better if the rock was a bit smaller than the paper and had to peek out from under it. Nice job with the idea!

I like the rock under the paper. Its expression says "...how, exactly, does this work?"

Well, I imagine that as Walmazan's shirt was "Rock, Paper, Scissor hold" http://shirt.woot.com/friends.aspx?k=14706, and this shirt is inspired by "Rock, Paper, Scissors" http://shirt.woot.com/Friends.aspx?k=9200, I imagine Walmazan is rather indifferent.

This is much better executed than it's namesake, imo.

I'd agree. Though I suppose one could argue that this doesn't exactly "reinterpret" the shirt title, only redesigns it. I hadn't thought of this until I looked at the original with your link.

Anyway, that paper-covers-rock part still bothers me. You can't really see the fury in the paper, it just looks like he floated down onto the rock.

hmm id think it be more of paper blocking rocks line of sight or taking the spotlight in american ideal since you can't see the rock in the paper. kidnof like stacking the odds

I saw it as paper sneaking up on the unsuspecting rock, actually. I love that you can see paper's evil eyes just behind rock.

Nicely done.

I was mildly surprised to see this coming from Ramyb, good job. Much better than the penguin re-hash. There's alot of Rock-paper-scissors concepts around, but imo this does a fine job being different from any that I've seen. I like the expressions you have conveyed here, it makes me wish you gave your animal shirts more interesting expressions, as I see now that you have the ability.

My favorite is the rock covered by paper - as someone said above "How, exactly, does this work here?"

But yeah, it would have been nice to see the paper's "haha I got you" eyes better.

Re: Inspired by Rock Paper Scissors


the only problem I have with this is that the paper looks more like its falling behind the rock rather than covering it. Otherwise, love the expressions

Would LOVE it if the rock had the same emotions as paper...THAT would say something about the power of paper. No matter what Kramer and Mickey had to say.

I think I would also like the shirt more if rock were scared (re: palookaboy) but rock's face in the center picture is just priceless, so I'm voting anyway. XD
