Re: 1982: Thriller



I don't think anyone would understand what was going on if I wore this shirt

I actually made a design a long time ago that had (as one among many design elements) a horse with a flaming mane. It wasn't for a shirt, though, and I have no idea what I did with it...

There are tons of unlicensed shirts using Nintendo trademarks that go much farther than this, I don't see Woot getting in problem. Unlike a lot of other shirts, the artist doesn't actually use any copyrighted characters or logos. Nintendo doesn't own a copyright on swords, bombs, rupees, hearts, or faeries.

I am now confident that Cho or a fan-faithful has multiple acounts to sway the votes. I am sorry but there is no way that in the prime of the night on a saturday that an entry can recieve 40 votes. Obviously someone here is cheating.

good lord. do you have any idea what kind of traffic woot gets at midnight? 40 votes is nothing...and happens to the leaders every weekend. Woot needs to start offering tin foil hats to some of you. And since you are obviously blind as well...you do see that this is only THIRD in the hotness and that genome has over 50 votes in the same period right?

Seriously, this cho conspiracy carp is so frigging tired.

Re: 1988, The Human Genome Project



well, since the print colors have been addressed already, i'll point out that the knees make the figure seem bowlegged. try standing with feet together, and observe how your own legs meet up. generally, they'll be pretty close at the knees, the calves, and the thighs. and speaking of feet, these are rather wide and flat. maybe add some realistic contours and depth. finally, there is a light circle just barely cutting into the shoulder on the right which seems to give it very odd musculature. maybe push the circle into the silhouette more? or you could omit the overlay

once again wooters are voting for an idea rather than a shirt. it's really amazing how often this happens - a good idea is poorly executed and still gets a ton of votes...most recent example being the blue box tree. Great idea, terrible execution.

This is almost indecipherable and will look awful if it actually gets printed. I love the idea, but the execution is just bad bad bad...jam on it.

problem is those are obvious parodies - this is obvious taking elements of the game and trying to profit from them. there is no element of parody whatsoever. pandering to video game nerds is pretty buttery croissant.

Re: 1974 - The Ramones form



Twenty-twenty-twenty-four votes in a row,
I wanna be in the hotness!
Nothin' to prove, I'm somewhere below,
I wanna be in the hotness!

Just move me up the vote count, maybe to the fog,
Hurry, hurry, hurry, before I kick a dog,
I can't control the forum, I can't control your votes,
Oh no-oh-oh-oh-ohhh...

Ad nauseum. Vote for the best punk shirt going in the derby... or just give me feedback.

I bought a couple becaue they reminded me of LoZ, each one represented a certain type of fairy. They were really cool.



Yay! That's pretty cool.

@ Leet - T-mobile is trying to what?! Wow. ...and no, just that word. ;)

@ recchiap - Got any suggestions?

@ Zenverse - Thanks! Yeah, I was kinda bummed about The Devil too...

@ NathanOfLight - You sir, are made of clever and win. I didn't even think about how far off I was with item design.

@ Derek - Yay! 66.66%. We'll see on Tuesday I guess. XD

@ outlaw - This is true. I don't think that N*ntendo would go after small guys like the guy printing shirts out of his mom's basement. Woot is a little bigger, and they've been concerned about copyrights in the past.

@ Brizz - True, this isn't a parody, but pandering to nerds nothing! I made this for myself, my friends, and all the other cool kids who appreciate the game and genre it inspired. I also like buttery croissants.

I don't know, it just seems a little too elementary in comparison to the beautiful etching you did on the chess piece. Maybe resub with a different border? I wouldn't take the whole border away because then it'd be a bit too empty.



you mean like something you would see on a birthday cake?????

1973 was the Chinese Year of the Ox, so I did a bull wearing groovy 70s fashion...and let me tell you, it's hard to make something with hooves look like it's giving a thumbs-up. ;)

I rather like the globe effect on it, as opposed to a random ball in the dragon's paw. Call me crazy, but I think it was a great choice!
