This is better than the other one, but shouldn't the mouth be pixelized?

I have a shirt catalog, y'all!

To be fair almost none of these are pixelated enough.

They are all about 16-bit level or more. Only a very few are truly NES 8-bit level. Which IMHO is why almost everything should be rejected.

There are a group of 8-bit designs. The best one in the fog (as far as closest
to theme) is the book one. "Tunes Pup" is also a pretty nice Gameboy-style design.

Otherwise, yea it's a bit annoying

Out of curiosity, people with more technical history than me, what screen resolutions do you associate with 8-bit? Specifically, what's the largest screen resolution that you would consider correct?

Since the Derby masters didn't specify, I was a process-oriented freak and looked up the screen width of an Apple IIe. But I don't know if True 8-Bit Fans think that counts.

None of these shirts have been printed yet. After voting closes, the three with the most votes will be printed. This one isn't in the top 9, so it's unlikely to be printed here.

When people submit to the Derby, they give Woot printing rights for 60 days. After that, they can put up the design for sale somewhere else if they want. It's always worth asking the artist if they intend to do that.

This is so late to the game that it isn't helpful at all. But when you say 8-bit graphics that instantly means consoles. Which in turn instantly means NES games. So I don't know what resolution those would have. But it wouldn't be hard to look at the zelda's and mario's and duck hunt's of that console to get a good idea. Also, just because things as good looking as kirby were on it doesn't mean that look is what comes to mind when 8-bit is said, it's generally the older ones.
