I respect both of you greatly, but this design is so unoriginal. RamyB has done at least two of these and TGentry has a shirt very similar (minus the astronauts) in the current spotlight sale.

I have to second the unoriginal sentiment. I do love the brightness though.

First off, thanks very much for the compliment .

This derby was incredibly difficult to come up with a solid idea--you had to have a design that was both visually appealing and referenced a popular game (or else it'd lose votes even if people liked the design but hated the reference).

On top of all that, you need a design that can be visually appealing without the reference. Often times we forget, but the shirt's name doesn't get slapped on the shirt--and in this case it won't even accompany the shirt on the front page.

So what we ended up with was something we though people would enjoy on its own, but still satisfy all of the above criteria.

Seriously though, feedback is always welcome and I do appreciate constructive criticism.

I dig it. You guys put your own twist on it. I was also trying to think of how to do Bioshock, and this is better than the leaves or whatever I was thinking of.

I agree. I came in to say, "how many PC LOAD LETTERing times are you going to resub this till you just let it die?" and then realized it wasn't him.

This reminds me of TGentry's "Pander Tree" although this time it's unintentional. It's like a formula and if you lock it in, you're in the fog. TGentry's shirt took 1st way back when.
