I liked the text too, I think the concept is a little vague without it. anyway, I will leave both up until the majority decides on one or the other, then I will get rid of the one people decided against.

I have no idea about this, but I remember reading a comment that the brown shirts used to be lighter. AA changed them or something. Is that right?

I think your design carries it through even without the text.

I thought the text went great, but I like the more generic shirt just a little bit better. Still a brilliant design and I would definitely buy one.

Re: Mom's eyes

I never really understood the urge to assign family traits to each feature for every newborn. Looks like a baby to me, just kinda squished. I usually just nod -- uh huh, looks just like Uncle Jed. Oh, and those eyes....

Alright, I put up version 3 of my design with the colors now reduced down to 6. I got rid of the white. For some reason I can't add a comment on it, I keep getting an error message. I can only reply to someone one else so I'm announcing the other version here.

I didn't get a chance to comment on your other entry. I really like the scatter of flower petals.



Thanks!
Still trying to figure this designing stuff out - choosing the right color t-shirt, using an appropriately large or small thumbnail to catch everyone's eye, composing the design so it flows right on the shirt etc.

THink Ineed to take a leaf out of your book and get a little more "punchy" and less cute.

Thanks! I'm going to be away next week so might not get to come up with a design, but I'll try anyway. Thanks for leaving a comment - it really helps me figure out what works and what doesn't.

Ah-ha! I wondered about the words too. I kind of feel the image should say it all, but then I chickened out 'cause so many other people chose to use text, and it seems to be working for them.
I will stick to my guns next time...

I thought mine was more cute than punchy. XP

I'm still new here... if you want to take a leaf out of a book, there are much better than me.

This is, by far, the best shirt entered for this derby, but knowing woot, that's exactly why it won't make it.

Oh, chemistry... I don't remember enough of it anymore. I was thinking ortho- and meta- stuff for MOM, though that doesn't work for CHILD. =P

Apparently, the entire point of this shirt is lost on you. I laughed out loud when I saw it and so did my roommate. Very clever.

Re: Mother of the Hidden Temple



All I know about this is that Hidden Temple was a game show that used to be on Nickelodeon in the 90s. Kids would beat physical and trivia challenges. And this symbol is for the Orange Iguanas, one of the team names that was in every show. Other team names were Silver Snakes, Blue Barracudas, Red Monkeys(?).

Thanks Kylemittskus! The idea was my wife's and she appreciates hearing that there are other gifted individuals out there who get her sense of humor ;-)

My 13-year-old nephew helped me get the text in and we did it over the phone (him at his house and me at mine). My husband is busy with his own design (it'll be up shortly).

I actually would have un-squared it a little bit if I had known my way around photoshop, but I wanted to get it in and I didn't want my nephew to do everything (he'll still get a percentage if I get printed, of course).



a very nice submission for someone still becoming acquainted with photoshop. I made the exact same mistake with my first shirt (the boxing issue). However, mine was far more noticable. May I ask how you made the image? Tablet, filter, something else?

Im sorry but I just like the text I think it grounds the design and strengthens the idea. Im thinking about getting rid of the other one. any objections?

Re: Hero



Really...

What's the point in having a shirt "in the running" if it's a poor copy of a trademarked logo? This will get removed also.

Come up with something original... Even if it wasn't trademarked, this shirt wouldn't have a chance... The background and everything about the shirt screams "TV Show" and does not stay on the topic of the derby.

Come up with something original.

Pretty funny though. I laughed.



I like the shape of the mouth... I see mouth and not mustache...

but if you were going to resubmit... I'd say throw in just a small splash of tongue in the center... would make it definitely mouth without changing the panicky waffle mouth I love now.
