Pretty impressive work using one line, but to do so effectively it pretty much trashes the no crossing over rule in multiple places. I don't know if woot will actually reject it, but it should be rejected.

Thanks, Weds. I don't see the lines crossing over themselves, though. The lines just vary in thickness. You can see how it's all one line, like how you'd draw one continuous line with a flat tip pen.

...thanks, for the comments, everyone.

I looked at the link that was posted. I could not find what you are talking about. I see no crossing of lines.

Love this shirt!! GMV

By crossing over I meant trace back. I didn't mean to imply that there were lines that X'ed across one another. I also realize that there are other designs that skirt the no tracing back over a line, but this one is by far the most egregious. There's at least four or five of the sharp points that absolutely could not be created by except by tracing back over the line (and no varying the line width, yet having them still touch giving the impression of tracing back over is not different than tracing back over).

I realize that there is a threshold level that many of the designs are pushing to not have rounded points, but I think this clearly crosses it. Putting in calligraphic elements to create points is one thing but the lines should separate at around a 45 degree angle. There are many here well below a 20 degree angle and some at less than 5 degrees.

Edit:

I'll also add that if you look around the derby so far none of the other designs have sharp elements like this one. The points on Patrick's web come close and I think are pushing it and some of the mane elements in truffle's unicorn, but I think this one is so different precisely because it pushed well past a reasonable level independently reached by at least a dozen people so far and where I think the limit reasonably should be.

An effective and dynamic entry Boots. You really made that one line work for you and kept it clearly in the derby rules.

I couldn't create something this well with no restrictions, never mind it being just one line. Amazing.

It will be interesting to see what the rejectionator thinks is retracing. But this is by no means worse than the spiderweb, not really sure how you can make that argument. If they dq this one, they will have to get rid of the spider web, the unicorn, the dragon (tips of its wings) the seahorse (inside its snout) and octavious, just to name the leaderboard. I am not sure woot is ready to pull that trigger since most, like this, are done so well.

Love the design! Question, though: Is it weird to wear a shirt that bears a resemblance to one's tattoo?

I'm not really into the whole fish yin-yang thing but this is beautiful Boots and I like it. I hope you win! Even though you couldn't wear it without major tailoring.. :-x

I was at first captivated by this design. It wasn't until I headed over to the comments section that I learned it was a Boots shirt. My captivation turned to uncertainty. Has my shirtwoot! crush on Boots clouded my judgement? No, it's just darn fine work.

Just beautiful, my favorite of the group. I haven't purchased a tee in forever, because I decided I need V-necks, and Woot! doesn't sell a women's V-neck.

But if it did, I'd buy this one. I may buy it anyway and just wear it around my office.
