I just noticed the derby comments thread name contains a $ instead of a # ... is it a sign of something??? Did I win $573 for finding it in some secret competition!

Re: Candy Sprites



Thanks! I enjoy making designs that have a lot of elements up close but read as one graphic from a distance.

I never could see magic eye pictures but these are okay. ^__^

I think you did a great job! Derbies can be pretty hit and miss when you're starting out. Unless you have a big following like fishbiscuit or walmazan or fablefire, sometimes a great idea and good execution will not be quite enough.

Keep at it and don't get discouraged.

Vote!

Since I have one on Woot of lions eating a pinata, maybe this is afterwards where the vultures swoop in and start eating the leftover carcass? Well I love this and hope it prints, +1.

Nice image, but please explain how this is junk food? Other then coughing up hair balls, after eating.

It's awfully hard to comment and vote on Derby entries when they don't load properly. The only shirts displaying properly are the ones in the fog and the ones in the "new hotness." I tried commenting about 5 hours ago and had the same problem.

PS. The "Top 20" page has a similar problem.

Very nice colors and a cool style. I wonder if this would have gone over better as 'Sweet Heart'?

Re: I really donut


Your art is solid - no worries there. The "I donut" is a very common trope, though, which is possibly why it's being passed up.

The background glow is a nice touch, though it looks like it's a gradient (or a very fine of a halftone) - that could be an issue when it comes to printing.

I wouldn't worry too much about a following. Yes, they can help, but it is by no means necessary. The top two selling artists here (300k+ shirts sold) did not advertise their derby designs anywhere -- no social media(*), no art pages, no .sig links. Their art sold itself.

There is no absolute formula to printing here -- the biggest variable is that the voting audience's tastes varies from theme to theme. Just keep in mind that this isn't only an art contest; it's also a wearability contest. If a viewer has to study the design to understand it, don't expect it to be as popular as a design which is understood right away.

The key thing is to have fun while drawing, to keep at it, and never stop improving. You will get noticed.


* - One does use multiple social media platforms for his own site, but he never used any of it to promote his submissions at shirt.woot. And you don't have to worry about it either, as he's not active here these days, which is a mixed bag, but with >800k followers now, it'd be no contest otherwise.

No.1 rule of online apparel purchases: SIZING CHARTS! Unsure between standard and premium options at shirt.woot? Read more about their differences here.
