Ya, that happens all the time for designs, you as the artist get to make choices that break reality (I tweaked my newton's cradle to break the norm, some liked it, some did, but that's the choice we as designers make).
Would be funny if the next theme allowed you to make a version where he DID plug the tube.

Just to add a few more notes to this discussion.

Many people love good designs, but don't necessarily want to wear them. Many people just care about the subject, and are ambivalent about design.

For instance, I would never want to wear a shirt with parachuters jumping out of my pocket, but I live with someone who plays war games and will love this. The main thing is that there is NOTHING else like this on the market. The designer found a niche where people who wear tshirts don't have many themed shirts. There are lots of military shirts, but not lots of funny military shirts.

Also, keep in mind that this site appeals to people who don't want to spend a lot on tshirts. If they already have 7 pirate shirts, they may give up an 8th even if the newer one is better that most of the others. It's just economics.

It takes a while to figure this group of voters out. Some will post their likes and dislikes for you, but most may only know what they like when they see it. As bluchez advised, take a look at past shirts and that may help you with future designs.

Re: Perpetual Emotion



This is a nail biter!!! I keep watching shirtderbystats.com, which is usually a very good predictor,, but I think this one is too close to call. You can tell that, because this one and the 2 Cho designs (not wave) keep moving in and out of the fog as people play the " move the votes around" game. I don't think we will really know the final results until things go on sale.

Yes I agree. I wouldn't wear the shirt, but would I drink a "Belfast Car Bomb"? yeah. Would I joke about Chinese sweat shops when I wear my designer shoes? probably. Would I play video games reenacting famous World War massacres, etc... There are a ton of things Americans make fun of that wouldn't be taken so lightly if the roles would be reversed.

It would be funny, I don't know if I would try it again or not. I would like to tweak the design, but I'm not sure Wooters really appreciate icosahedron racers. Otherwise the lone racer would have done better. Maybe everyone else have icosahedron vehicles driving around their neighborhoods all the time.

Yes, you have red, green orange and white, but then you have a metalic silver with shadows (there are at least 2 colors of grey/silver there) The blacks have gradient shadows, and then you have grey and flesh tone in the face that's in there. You can't use a photo to make an entry for the design since they print in color separations, so even if they remove the RPM (which they don't do, you would have to remove any questionable part of the design and resubmit) you would still get rejected because they do not currently print true gradients, nor can they separate colors that are from a photo (like the RPM guage). The colors need to be separated by you before you submit your design.



The worst part of this rejection is that 3 people took time (and look at how much energy JK used for this!) to explain woot's rules to the entrant, and he basically told us to buzz offl. You don't want to ignore new people, but this case is a very poor return on effort to help.

I am sorry this came in so late. Woot definitely could use some more colorful shirts. This definitely is not gray.

Re: Perpetual Emotion



I am new to Woot and noticed the few derbies I have followed that the designs I love are almost always on shirt colors I hate. I am debating if I could make myself wear this color shirt. I tend to wear black and jewel tones, very few pastels. They make me look sick. But then, what looks good on me does not work for everyone either.

The expressions on the orbs are great. I know someone like each of them. I hope it makes the cut just on the principle. Then I will most likely debate getting it until it is sold out.

This illustration deserves to be in the fog. It is definitely waaay better than army men, mammoths, or apples. I wish I could give those shirts a thumbs-down.

Keep up the great art!

Vote Cho for President of Woot!!

On second thought, Woot should have a derby next week or the week after where the designers name is not shown and if the designer says who he or she is, the shirt is rejected..

Then, after Cho wins, it will be revealed only to show people they are morons for all of their conspiracy theories.

Only shirt to get my vote so far this derby. Simple and beautiful, love it! Like the other commenters, I really hope it makes another appearance in a future derby and wins!

Great work!

Thanks. Trust me, no more baby blue for me If you like the art, this tends to be my style, so check back weekly!
It may or may not stay in the fog (the back and for is really very funny) but 1-3 seem pretty solid (wave, newton/tree and army men, not listed in any particular order)

Id vote for cow tipper but hmmm I think I can only buy 1 brown Cho shirt per week (duck hunt last week). I also like the Marching one by Edgar but that one seems unlikely to get printed...

Well, if it does not get printed this week, I NEED you to resub it next week. See, the ball on the far right represents my 3-year-old and the four on the left are his siblings. It's perfect for MY Mother's Day ;) and if it does get printed this week (or next), then I will wear it on Mother's Day. Surely there is some other way to tie it to mom. Hmmmmmmmmmm.

Re: Army in my Pocket Version 2



I think it makes perfect sense that all the guys look alike and that the parachuters are mirrored. I thought it worked because I always thought of them as the little green army men (which was why I liked the brown better), which are essentially identical.

There's a difference between constructive criticism and insults. Sometimes it's a fine line, but we can always be more kind...
