Re: The First Cow Tipper



Coincidence or not, it's eerily similar to a shirt design on another site. That would be grounds for rejection for anyone else. It wouldn't even be a debate.

Regardless of Cho's reputation, regardless of whether or not this is a coincidence, based on precedent set in previous Derbies, this also has to have the guillotine dropped down on it.

If it doesn't get rejected then it CLEARLY shows a Woot bias towards the work of Cho.

This fish appears to be having a pretty excellent time, which is a sentiment I can get behind. Good luck.

No editing, just removing (only within 24 hours of posting) and resubbing.

Except that it would give you what you want. I've noticed woot ignores entries when people *demand* they be rejected, or else.

I changed the character's appearance and movements but that apparently isn't enough for parody/appreciation. I'm a little disappointed with the Woot staff on this one.



Maybe it would make it with a different music source? Though probably best to ask what criteria they used to deem this too similar. =/

I didn't "demand" anything, I'm simply stating an observation.

People have said for a long time now that this site, and many of its most hardcore supporters, have a bias towards Cho. I firmly believe that if this similarity had come up for anyone else it would be immediate grounds for a rejection, but for Cho people are chalking it up as "just a coincidence" and "because it's Cho we'll let it slide".

Want further proof of the bias? Where's Adder and his voting elites who search out designs in the Derby that have this exact type of similarity. They're eerily silent about this comparison.

What's the purpose of Woot having rules or rejection policies if they're only going to enforce them on certain contestants?

Okay... thanks for your suggestion.... let me see...

Hmmmmm... it doesn't seem to work with a lighter background... the silhouettes are not as powerful and the bird's not all that dark, so by making the "swoop" lighter I really start to lose the bird as the central image.

You're right that brown is defintiely not the best choice... Just tried that and it's no good. Can't use the grey this derby... I think I might be best off with the black.

Anyone else agree with mouser? Or is high contrast the way to go?

This is my first entry in one of these competitions. I spent all bloody day trying to figure out how to make my drawing into an acceptable design - I'm a painter, not a designer or illustrator and I can barely find my way around photoshop, let alone actually make something cool.
Anyway, it was a learning process. I'm guessing most people have a portfolio of designs already done that they simply adapt to the theme? Otherwise, how the hell did so many people post their designs within hours?
It's now 8:30pm and my back hurts from 10 hours of being at this damn computer.
Next week I will submit a design in under 6 hours, and I'll make it look all flashy like everyone else's. And I'll stop grumbling. No-one likes a grumbler.

awesome... but placement might be the worst placement in the history of shirt design... might... not to be mean or anything. resub with it in the center and I (and what it seems most wooters) would like better. please resub.

There's one thing I don't like about it: It looks like the orbs aren't centered up properly on the bar, because you've got the bar centered with respect to the orbs as they are in the illustration, not as they would be if they actually motionless. Do you follow what I mean?

The other shirt on this idea gets that aspect right; the ball that's out there is swinging outside the fixture. The perspective offered by the other design is nice, too. However, the emotions on this one are much better, and just downright hilarious! It gets my vote over the other design, but this fixture positioning issue still irks me.

please resub again, but in a good location (maybe slightly of center on the chest). its too nice a design to waste with the placement.

I feel your pain. But I really did just sit down and design this shirt in the 24 hours since the topic was announced. That meant I had to rush a bit, and I'd obviously do better if I had more time to work (hence my re-working the image and upcoming resubmission). It's a tough choice, between spending more time designing and letting votes slip by while you do so.

Re: Lamborghini Gallardo



Ok, I'll explain what I did for this image.

In response to mjl9320, yes, this was hand traced from a picture.

In response to superspryte, yes, it was vectorized. I originally traced it in raster format at only 1024x768 so it looked kind of choppy. I put it through a vectorizer so I could scale it nicely. And that answers JadenKale as well...

Re: FIRE!




Not a huge fan of the creme, but I absolutely love the scene on the shirt. (thus, I'd probably tolerate the creme for the image!) The expressions, the capture of the 'motion', the positioning... all very nicely done. Good luck, and you've got my vote!

Does Cho design for any other sites? I haven't noticed anything by him at DBH. Is there anywhere else he submits his stuff to? Or does he have his own site?

thanks!

Now I want to go back in and try doing that... It always looked so much higher when we were kids, didn't it? Kids these days and those "safe" playgrounds with swings that don't go as high...

Heheh... I don't know... my siblings and I were pretty good at disposing of "safety features." :-)

Be careful if you resub, though. I see another shirt with a swing in it... make sure they're different enough looking (which shouldn't be a problem).
