My favorite out of the 4. The Pie one is cool, but Im more of a darker person so this is great! Very creative. Excellent job by the artist!

I just wanted to put in my thoughts on this confusion as a former linguistics student.

There are two puns on the word "Pi" taking place.

This submission is a play on the homonym, "Pi" and "pie." The design is in the shape of a pie, but is made up of the digits of Pi. Clever. Cherry too.

The link provided shows a play on the phrase "apple pie." Therefore, the design appears to be a Pi symbol carved out of an apple. An apple pi. Equally clever.

They are related only by theme and by the word pie. An apple pie and a pie carved out of an apple would not be the same concept, right? Q.E.D.

If you sold this t-shirt somewhere I'd totally buy it - I'm so sad it's not in the FOG...

Yes, 3DS Max v1.1, meaning I've missed 10 years of upgrades....

For anyone interested, there's a free program at blender.org that is well beyond this older version of Max. Look up "blender movies" or something like that at YouTube, or see image samples at blender.org. It's very cool, but with a steep learning curve, which is why I stuck with max for just messing around with this.

I downloaded the program from blender.org and while it looks like you can create some awesome stuff, It looks very hard to use. I may work with it this weekend.
I love your 3d snake by the way.

this shirt is way better than any of the ones in the fog. I think the majority of the people on this site must be infatuated or something, the winning shirts are usually terrible.

Thanks. Yes, not exactly easy, but there area tutorials: google "blender tutorial" for a bunch of links. The first of the noob-to-pro tutorieals is very step-by-step and a good place to start. Unfortunately, that's about all I've had time to look at, so can't claim any expertise with the program.

Great shirt. This may be my first .shirt woot (assuming it's not given the ol' irish elbow in to fourth)

Only complaint is it doesn't have the line "quoth the raven... nevermore." Comeone, that's the most famous lie I would say.

Other than that... great!

You either have to stay up late (shirts go on sale at midnight) or pay $15 for it the next day. this site has links to shirts still available, which woot doesn't do a good job of making easy to find

Re: Pie Of Pi's



Week after week, you put out excellent designs that appeal only to a small subgroup of the voters. This shirt screams "hey look, I'm a huge dork!", and most people aren't going to vote for that. I voted for it because I didn't like either of the other 3 fog shirts and thought this one deserved to win, but I wouldn't have bought it. While you have superior artistic skills, appealing only to the math nerd subgroup of shirt.woot voters isn't enough to win a derby.

also, aesthetically it bothers me that the missing slice is clearly not centered on the pie.

that's what makes it slightly less passe. besides, the other one is NOT more original... look inside any angsty goth 17 year old's notebook and you'll see that exact design.

Don't get me wrong, the Poe loving angster in my is going to buy both *and i'm pissed the sparrow didn't win), but this one definitely takes the cake... (pie?)

Re: Pie Of Pi's



Using Pi as a play on the word pie is common. I have gotten a shirt for a gift that says QT (pi symbol). I have also bought a pie plate that has the pi symbol in the bottom with the irrational pi running around the outside for my brother the engineer (who does some cooking). And I have seen variations that have not been rendered as well in other catalogs etc.

Cho's shirt is a attractive representation of the concept (i.e. his drawing looks like a good pie.)
It is very unlikely that a derby entry comes up with a completely original idea, in that no one had thought of it ever before. And how would you know if it was truly original or not. Please note: this is different that directly ripping off something you have seen before or went and found on the internet.

It's lunchtime and I feel like some dessert.

Hmm. I think it looks like they're up on a rack. I'm not sure how else to arrange them.

I disagree. First of all, I don't consider Poe to be goth at all. Maybe I'm out of touch, but Poe is just more of an artsy thing. Second of all, it takes a lot more originality to create an image from a few letters than it does to slap some text inside of a shape.

I still commend haxrox on a winning idea and a very clean and excellent execution, but I would have much preferred to see the winners be those where text was manipulated and drawn in unique and interesting ways, rather than just having lines of plain text arranged into a shape.

(Unofficial) Derby Rules (outdated?)
Designing for the Derby (definitely outdated)

I've been looking through the derby entries, and to be very honest with you, yours is one of the most creative I've seen all evening. Nicely done!
