Re: An Inevitable Fate

Definitely fits the theme well, and attractive colors you got going on. I do question whether Lord of the Rings is one of the dead horses though.

I agree, it's a dead horse.

YES. Awesome.

And LOTR is not as overdone in shirt.woot derbies as other themes, so I don't think that horse is dead yet.

Half-dead ;)

When this prints it'll probably put that horse down for the next few weeks.

My question would be: is the Elvish Script copyright?

I'm guessing that's why he had to make changes to resub. I'm not an expert, but this script doesn't look quite like the real elvish?

That's right, and that's why I just drew something similar....but different. You can compare with bounty's image, the shapes are vaguely similar, but it's easy to see that it refers to LOTR

Thank you for your nice words. I don't think LOTR is a death horse. I've been here for less than a year, but I think there aren't many shirt.woot LOTR shirts

Wirdou, I WILL (and mark my words, because this will win) wear this to The Hobbit premier!

Re: An Inevitable Fate


I liked this one the first time, too! Very creative concept. I don't think there have been too many LOTR woot shirts recently...I can't even recall the last one they printed.

One thing, though: I don't want to be "that guy (gal)" here, but is the gold ink half-toned in the background? I don't think they can print it like that. It would be easy for you to fix it anyway if it were an issue.

Thanks Omar and Ochopika!! Don't worry Ochopika, the halftones in the background are with the lighter yellow ;)

Oh good, that's a relief. I'd be pretty sad if it got rejected again for something silly like that. Pretty sure you'll get first place .

GMV, this is a great shirt for this derby, even if it might be a dead horse.

On a slightly different point (and I know that it's moot to grumble on this topic, but I feel it needs to be pointed out), as far as I can tell, there have been more LOTR shirts than DW shirts printed by woot. So I'm wondering what reason they have to say that DW IS a dead horse, while LOTR isn't. Besides the prevalence of DW over LOTR in the more recent derbies, that is...

Does anybody have a http://shirt.woot.com/offers/cloak-of-visibility-lightweight-hoodie and/or http://shirt.woot.com/offers/who-needs-gravity-zip-up-hoodie in MXL that they don't want and/or need to sell? I would LOVE to buy it from you! I am currently offering $40+S&H for either one new, and $20-30+S&H for either one used! Please contact me ASAP, thanks!

Glad to see you were able to resub this since the original was so good. Hope it prints so I can get at least one if not two.

I'd love to wear this, though! :D

Fantastic!!! Dang, if this doesn't go to print, I might be taking a break until we get more like-minded voters...

Changing the world... one asylum at a time...
