Thanks,

I'm a visual fine artist and photographer, but have never done graphic design. I have Photoshop Elements and just started to work on learning layering two weeks ago. This shirt designing has been a great incentive for me to learn how to use it.

For everyone's information the items that were "born" in 1948, besides me, (and I'm quite the item!), were a certain fast food chain providing us with billions, and billions of hamburgers and fries, a certain plastic disc inspired by a pie tin from a baking company, a certain word game using tiles, and a certain electric guitar that came out in a solid body, not to mention the fusing of rythmn and blues with electricity which gave birth that year to Rock and Roll!

Thanks Jaden and Taylor. Glad you like it!

You both have been working on some great entries this week! I'm enjoying seeing the range in ages of the designers. I had an idea of a lot of people's ages based on their posts. But, a few designers have surprised me this week.

Taylor- Love the chess one! Great details!

Jaden- Of your entires, I think my favorite is the test-tube baby.

Nice concept, but the purple outlining is a bit odd and as the no text rule is in play it will get rejected dye to the "!"

Now, THAT'S a nerd.



Seriously, I never would have known that. Then again, I don't find this piece wearable for myself anyway. Every time I look at the piece, I see Africa. And since it's on black, I find a sub conscience feeling there's a deeper connotation behind the design, even if there isn't. I'm by no means implicating that the designer was trying to do this, it's just what I see when I stare at it in the FOG. I'm not trying to be racist in any way by pointing out what I'm seeing within the design so please do not take offense at it. However, if you WERE trying to make it look that way, by all means, please enlighten us because I don't want to sit here thinking I'm crazy seeing a design within a design.

Man, they are really messed up. I'd like to call attention to:
"T-Mobile, the T-Mobile logo,... the T-Mobile acoustic logo, and the color magenta are registered and/or unregistered trademarks..."

I wish I could underline the term "unregistered trademarks" but I can only figure out how to make it bold, which only slightly shows up. That phrase brings up the question, which is an unregistered trademark and which is a registered trademark? My guess, color magenta is unregistered. Also, I don't think that will hold up in court, as long as the company T-Mobile sues isn't another phone company. An unregistered trademark may (key here is may) be considered a protected trademark from what I understand. Sadly, I have too much work on a Title VII paper to look into this one.

So I searched through published case opinion involving Nintendo as the plaintiff (the one suing) and here is the result (Note: I only looked at federal cases because Copyright is a federal issue. And honestly, as a corporation, Nintendo has a better chance suing in a federal court than a state court. Besides, why sue in a state court when you are dealing with a federal issue?):

Nintendo of America, Inc. v. NTDEC, 51 F.3d 281 (9th Cir. 1995) - Nintendo sues NTDEC for reproducing, repackaging, and selling the counterfeit games. I personally feel this is an obvious copyright infringement. (court did too)

Nintendo of America, Inc. v. Lewis Galoob Toys, Inc., 16 F.3d 1032 (9th Cir. 1994) - Nintendo sells for the creation and distribution of the Game Genie. Game Genie won this one.

Nintendo of America, Inc. v. Dragon Pacific Intern., 40 F.3d 1007 (9th Cir. 1994) - Nintendo sues a manufacturer of a gaming console very similar to the NES that created game cartridges with more than 10 games on each cartridge, many of which were copyrighted Nintendo games. Nintendo Won.

And to prevent this from getting too long, the rest of the cases where Nintendo Sued involved more copyright infringement where someone was trying to sell a Nintendo game unlawfully and a case with Nintendo challenging a patent which someone claimed they infringed. Note: none of the cases I found were after 1996. This doesn't mean cases don't exist in which Nintendo sued, it just means those court decisions weren't published by the judge. But for the most part, the infringement cases dealt with actual copying of a game made by Nintendo.

And as a random side note, check out the wikipedia article on when Universal sued nintendo in the 80s for copyright infringement on their movie King Kong. They lost. Silly Universal. I point you to a wikipedia article, because you'd have to pay to access a legal database.

Duck Hunt was a 1984 Nintendo game. I can remember playing it at a friend's house. I wish the graphics of the game had looked like this shirt.

jenny78 wrote:I would love to agree with you because I get tired of seeing an animal design win every week, but I really don't think anyone with eyes could deny that Cho has incredible talent. This shirt is amazingly well drawn. I won't vote for it because I would never buy something like this, and I only vote for things that I would definitely buy, but it's going to win. And it deserves to. I just wish he'd draw something besides an animal for a couple weeks. There's no way he's cheating though. Everyone knows woot has the most hits when a new shirt is first up for sale. So, why wouldn't that be the best time to enter a shirt in the derby? More people will see it and vote. He's just smart. Not a cheater.

cho not doing animals would be like monet doing portraits, or picasso doing landscapes. He most likely could do something else but animals are his thing.

Probably the most tasteful Zelda shirt I've ever seen. No weird text that tries to make it sound "cool", but there's a lot there, and the color choice is brilliant, since it softens it all. Looks better every time I look at it.

Thanks,

I'm a newbie oldie. My daughter told me about the Woot site, and then on a whim I decided to try the shirt designing. I am just begining to figure out my Photoshop Element's layering. I've only used it in the past for regular photo editing - you're never too old to learn!

No it's not Africa and the design is on the front of the shirt. I did not mean for this design to have any racist connotations whatsoever.

Re: 1975 Oh So Cool! (Resub)


I kinda like this one more in the preview image because it didn't have that sunburst behind it. The sunburst doesn't work as well.

I believe you misread black for back, but I'm happy to see you were able to answer fairly quickly. I hate making such comments for fear of the flaming, but I wanted to be sure I wasn't seeing something that people weren't commenting on.

schizoreaper wrote: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



The silhouete is a picture of myself, I happen to be mildly bowlegged and those are my real legs and feet.
