Sweet, I'll PM ya, thanks.

I thought about it - perpetual (e)motion pretty much describes the life of a mom - at least of one with young kids- then again perhaps even more so for moms of teenagers

I'm not sure why a shirt would be rejected for text when they ARE allowing text this week. What's that all about?????

Next derby - about mom, which is not open yet = text

Last derby - about motion, which ended today and still has the images up = no text

Re: Fireflies



I think I'm the kiss of death-- I like a shirt, it doesn't make it.
sorry if I cursed your design. I really like it. Better luck next time!

YES, it made it! Whew!

I got a kick out of comparing it to kids/mothers. Now it definitely reminds me of my brothers and I. L.O.L.

Every derby has specific qualifications that are posted the day before the new derby actually opens for submissions.

Re: Army in my Pocket Version 2



This is awesome.. sorry I'm new.. can we actually buy this shirt yet?

I love the little men, but the pocket just looks really, really bad in my opinion and brings down the overall quality of the shirt. The lines need to be straighter for the creases, and if a guy is pulling down the pocket it needs to show. As a previous poster said there should be shadows at least behind the guys jumping out of the pocket to give the shirt some depth and make it look like there are *actually* guys standing on your shirt.

I like the design, but I wish people would stop voting for the "cute" entries and start voting for stuff that looks more polished. One of the reasons I find myself voting for Cho's work is generally because he takes the time to make sure every little detail is exactly how he wants it. Now I'm not saying that everyone's work has to look the same, but I think that this shirt could have benefited from a little more TLC.

Anyways, grats either way to the artist it looks like this one is guaranteed top 3.

You both would then be beaten by army guy (which might be clever but surely doesn't stand up to your level of "good" art since you believe that all of jamescho84's designs this derby are poor). After that, you would be being beat by sokowa, who has placed in 2 derbies with printings. After that, you would be being beat by tgentry, who is the second most printed designer at woot (according to other posts, not my research). After that, you would be being beaten by artulo (with a nice paper airplane design that is a resub). Sachmoe64's design, dsladek's design, AND tgentry's Lincoln design would all not be winning or even in the fog.

Would this make you happier? Would you be complaining less? You would be being beat by at least two people who are probably obtaining some votes based on name, sokowa and tgentry. You would be being beat by a roughly drawn design. You would be being beat by a resub of an entry from an earlier derby. This would make you happy and all things right with the world, correct?

The fact of the matter is, what wins week after week is what strikes a chord with the voters. That is IT. Do you really think that if the jamescho84 conspiracy is so strong that it would be sharing the fog with a design such as the army men? It seems to be the case that it is secured in the one of the top spots. I can assure you that only a small portion of the 700 votes it takes to get in the fog are from anybody who is voting on name alone. A version of the wave design that you feel is worthy placed fourth in the water derby. Go back and look at what beat it. The terribly powerful voting block that is responsible for sachmoe64's and dsladek's designs not winning this derby was unable to get even one of jamescho84's shirts printed, and lost out to other designs that some voters felt were less worthy (were they correct?).

Please, for all of our sakes, keep entering the derby, but try to look at the designs that win and ask yourself why they win based on the design. You will find that they win because the voters (that particular week) liked them. You don't have to bastardize your morals or your design or your artistic integrity to win, but you do have to learn how to catch the voter's eye. As indicated before, the artist you are complaining about has close to 100 total entries to his name, and has been working on tuning what he designs, the style he uses, and the concepts he picks to what he thinks the voters are looking for. This is what you should be doing, not attacking other people that you perceive are the problem with the relatively short time you've been studying the issue.

If neither of you can recognize how lucky you are to have such high placing designs in a contest such as this, with as few entries as you have made, than you need to reevaluate why you are participating. There are great designs here with <100 votes. Is jamescho84 responsible for that? No, those great designs didn't strike a chord with the voters this week. Both of your entries have, so be happy.



You're my boy Blu!!!!

How is this ripping off penny arcade? they draw a cartoon jesus and suddenly they own jesus? Either way, you're saying that i unintentionally ripped them off, which isn't even possible. That would have to be an intentional act. Which it wasn't. I've never seen them have jesus on a jetpack, Only sometimes have jesus throw the satan horns, which they also didn't invent.

I have lots of jesus related stuff, for me religion is a joke and jesus is comedy.

It is not obvious it is Iron Man, perhaps add a little more detail in the sillhouette and add hand thrusters?

I'm kind of glad it doesn't outwardly scream "iron man", even though I like iron man. Its actually perfect as is. If you look quick, it looks like the flash's lightning bolt. Then when you look you go "ohhh...oooo..cooooool".

A little too late now, but thanks anyway. Depending on the derby themes, maybe you'll see it again. XP

I absolutely loved this! I love kitties and these are nice kitties. Until I got to the bottom. At first the cat landing on its back was funny, but then I looked closer at the eyes and realized the cat was dead. Dead kitties are NOT funny.

Why did it not do better? Dead kitty, that's why.
