Yeah. That's pretty much my thoughts too. Unless that rabbit has some very discrete strain of rabies, nothing about this rabbit suggests that one should be wary of it.

Plus, and this seems to be a problem with a few of the shirts (someone already brought it up in Walmazan's Nacho shirt), is that I don't see the everyday "task"; I suspect that the counterargument will be that passing a rabbit in one's travels is a relatively common occurrence, and that everyday occurrences are in the spirit of the derby(and therefore allowable) rather than the strict letter of the law ("everyday tasks").

Re: Afternoon stroll through the park


Woot is being Veerrrrry lenient with this week's theme.
I see lots of designs that are far beyond 8-bit graphics and have little to do with "everyday mundane things"

Reminds me of art school:
"Do a design in pen and ink"
Everyone submits a pen and ink design except one dude who does a 3D shadowbox and gets an A for it.

I don't know why this makes me laugh so much. Great looking rabbit! I know, I know, it's because you've had experience with drawing rabbits. :-P
It still makes me chuckle. I FIGURED IT OUT! In Munchkin, there is a ordinary bunny monster, except if you roll a 6 on a d6. Then its THAT rabbit from THAT movie.

I ALWAYS get a 6, and die.

I need this shirt +1

Perhaps the "task" is the wooter putting up with yet another mawkishly-cute-animal design from "ramyb the ubiquitous."

my first thought upon seeing the shirt was the rabbit from Monty Python and the Holy Grail...
"I *warned* you, but did you listen to me? Oh, no, you *knew*, didn't you? Oh, it's just a harmless little *bunny*, isn't it?"

This IS part of my everyday life. Being an active member of a rabbit rescue, I have not necessarily "run away" but I do related to its meaning. Thanks Ramyb. I love your designs and want all the bunny ones ( especially the ones with death). +2 please!

Rabbit aside, this is just kind of sloppy. It's obvious that a square brush was used in a vector program. The spacing is really erratic. I know that the average voter won't notice that kind of stuff, but come on. I've seen you do make some pretty cool designs, so I know you're capable of it.

Agreed. The secret to making authentic 8-bit art is to work at low-res until the end. I worked at 320x320 for my design. Ramy obviously used a square brush on a high-res canvas. Jagged edges doesn't make the design 8-bit.

This doesn't look nearly pixelated enough to remind most people of 8bit graphics. Look at how round those little eyes look even from up close.

There seems to be a lot of confusion in this derby between pixelated designs and 8-bit art. I´m no expert on 8-bit art, but in my opinion your design must always fit a square grid to be truthful to the style. In this case what we have is a design made using a square brush to make it look pixelated...

You are free to do whatever you want. Read it again, "something mundane and pixelated art." And, ..This is "pixelated." It's not 8-bit, but you can see the jags. It's not "mundane Everyday Life" either. OVER half the entries in this derby aren't on topic, so I guess you can see what side of the fence woot is on, No???

You guys are being to literal. If it sells shirts and he can get away with it, whatever, but everytime you post a bump in his thread with his cute little bunny-thummy it gives it more and more exposure. He is an evil genius! And y'all are the mob.

I can see your point, however, 8-bit art and pixelated art are two different things. I could make a super high res eboy like picture and call that pixelated but it's not 8-bit.

I get there is a little bit of leniency in the statement but with the name of the derby being 8-bit, I would assume a picture that clearly isn't 8-bit wouldn't make it into the fog, but that's what I get for assuming right?

All of the other fog designs are 8-bit, his isn't. Here he is though, skirting the rules again to get a quick buck. I think the reason you see a lot of complaining is because Ramyb has so much talent, but instead he chooses to waste it making bunnies, squirrels and turtles.

We all have to make a living so I get it, but, you can choose the path of hard work that makes you the best you can possibly be or you can phone it in everyday and follow the path of least effort.

1) "It sells" is the mantra for business without ethics. If that is a stance you believe in, you are also without ethics.

2) It doesn't matter if only one derby entry is on topic, and that one derby entry is horrible: that should be the winner, and nothing should win saturday and sunday.

3) I am surprised, in a community full of the most tedious webdorks on the planet, nobody bothered to note that Monty Python has released a Grail based video game. Which means this is, by definition, out of bounds: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monty_Python_%26_the_Quest_for_the_Holy_Grail

"It doesn't sell" is the mantra of Borders Book and Blockbuster.

Borders and Blockbuster are no different. Big box retailers don't care about quality. they care about sales. Better to see them gone.

And while you're editing wikipedia, you should also edit these links:
http://www.adventureclassicgaming.com/index.php/site/reviews/54/

http://www.gamefaqs.com/pc/565196-monty-python-and-the-quest-for-the-holy-grail

http://www.ign.com/cheats/games/monty-python-and-the-quest-for-the-holy-grail-pc-6893

See, Wikipedia is a great resource to jump off from for research. So if you're researching something, going to wikipedia will confirm it exists, and the references will confirm that the statement of its existing is valid, depending on where the references come from. Wikipedia on its own is fallible. That is why there are references: you get the rough draft, and then you check the sources, and if they are credible, you use them. I see nothing untrustworthy about those three gaming sites, but I thought I'd link a couple more. Most intelligent people, given a non-in-depth article, would simply check the references, of course. It is not an abstract about rocket science. It is basically a citation that a game exists, with links to prove it.

Of course, for the true skeptic... the 9/11 conspiracist, the Young Earther, the Climate Isn't Real Because Liberals Care About It armchair scientist observing that snow is evidence against climate change... I offer you to buy a copy off ebay. There are many, and they're cheap. But I guess I could have made a number of ebay accounts to sell fake goods (wow, that doesn't sound like something close to home, does it?) If so, you could always watch a video of the game (complete with "run away" button below). Now, I don't think I can hack YouTube to post a video anticipating the Ramy Era months before he ever showed up at woot, which is good, because clearly I could have forged a video sequence. Hopefully that is solid enough proof. The rabbit comes in at about the 3 minute mark. Which means a choppy white rabbit, with the option to "Run away," is in a video game. Which means this should be rejected. Forget that Ramy has used this tired trope numerous times before. This time it's decidedly against the rules. If Jawas are axed for being video game characters (which they are, and should have been axed already for not being every-day events), so too should this.

You sir, are a trooper. Thank you!

Part of me wonders if he's even aware of Monty Python anyway, because it's focussed around a park as opposed to a cave/mountain thing... In which case it's just a hackneyed design.

So besides the weak sauce concept, the shadows are all jacked up.

The light source appears to be above the head and between the viewer and the rabbit while the shadow on the ground reflects a light source behind the rabbit.

Don't even get me started on the inconsistency between the shadows on the rabbits body and it's head.

The lack of attention to simple details is spectacularly incredible. I would think the "fans" of Ramyb should be ashamed of this work, it's substandard even by the usual standards.

But if you admit it's the Killer Rabbit, then it's no longer Everyday 8-Bit, it's Supernatural Creatures in a Medieval Setting 8-Bit, and it gets rejected. People are bending over backwards to accept this as an everyday rabbit for the purposes of the theme, at which point the joke goes away. You can't have it both ways.

(I'm in the "should have been rejected" camp on this one, because as much as I love a good Killer Rabbit, it's not in theme here.)

Hmm, you know I don't think you have to bend over backward to see this design as a spoof of the pervasive RPG fight command "run away/flee/escape" in an everyday setting rather than a pure Monty Python reference.

The everyday task supposedly being "walking in the park" the possibility the rabbit is EITHER an everyday bunny or the killer rabbit would both work with the "escape" joke. The player is either over reacting to an ordinary bunny or tactically escaping with their life from a random encounter of doom. Since it's left pretty vague(no blood on the rabbit or pile of bones) I can see why woot might feel it's on topic enough.

Ugh it doesn't help that I can actually imagine a fan of Monty Python making this joke at an actual rabbit encounter... sigh.

An ordinary rabbit in the park/woods would almost certainly be brown. An escaped white rabbit would be an albino with pink eyes. This . . . ? I don't know what it is.

While I recognize this as a valid point, I would much rather they be lax in enforcing their rules and get good designs as a result (never mind they'll get voted down by the unwashed masses).

They have provided a theme and a grounds upon which they can nix the more egregious entries. I have no qualms about how they conduct themselves otherwise.

With Ramy entering derbies, what is the point of even trying? Just give him the job of making a shirt a week and get him off of being able to enter. His stuff destroys everything, even when they aren't even related to the theme like this shirt.

I'd have the same reaction.

However, I think it has more to do with the realization that a place that was once full of great and creative artwork is now nothing but the same cutesy animal and pun shirts every week that appeal to nothing but (mod note: "things I, the writer disagree with and the mods considered trolling")

That's the power of democracy, I suppose.

I'm really fascinated in the zealous flame wars that occur on all of Ramy's designs. People just seem to treat it like the argument department for Woot. If you don't like the shirts here, there are plenty of other great t-shirt sites.

Pardon me for skipping over the arguments about whether or not this fits the requirements.

I just want to say that I was all set to buy this and was so disappointed it didn't win. I hope, at some point, then run it in the middle of the week or you can resubmit it! It's the perfect design -- adorable AND with a nerdy joke!
