Re: Summer Goddess



This is a great design! The shirt has a very mellow feel to it and I think the cream color works well with the design. Great job!

I think it is wonderful just as it is.

I look forward to seeing it again.

Thanks :-( I didn't understand it because there are two ways to read it. It could be somebody upset because another wooter critiqued their work too harshly so they are mocking them, or it could be a statement about the terrible art in the derbies (sorry if my poor designs offend you, I'm still learning and i'm very new to designing)

Comments like these are detrimental to the woot environment. Maybe i'm just an uninformed newbie in designing and in the derbies, but i think maybe we should give CONSTRUCTIVE feedback and nicer comments to promote a positive woot community. Still state your mind and give comments on designs and how to make them better, but don't go around making truly pointless and rude remarks.

Yes you should, because usually the tiny eskimos in MY iced teas look way more realistic, but that also depends on what restaurant you order it at.

What a tool mjl is if he/she is serious. This is a clever and well executed design in my opinion.

Right above the big picture to the left hand side. It should say "I'd Want One" and click on it.

Re: The Sun, My Eyes!


I love the design, and I would wear it if it wasn't for the color. Sky blue makes sense, sure, but the brightness of it takes away from the sun. Something less saturated (mid-gray) would have looked better, I think, and made that awesome halftone sun pop out like it should.
Good luck

Damnit!!! I stand corrected and idiotic and angry. I can't wait until tomorrow night! OR... Or maybe, this shirt is so amazing, they will claim it as winner early. HA!

I've confirmed in the final art that there are 6 colors. Just to put that worry to rest.

Re: Jump in



Yeah, I agree. I think you should change the shirt color to something more bright and summer-ish.

He's the smart-aleck/cutsie/annoying character from an animated talking animal movie (think Open Season, Over the Hedge, Shark Tale, The Wild, etc. etc...) He's sipping a soda for that extra product placement goodness.

Well, he already got a BLA award. If you want to get it printed outside Woot you have a couple options: talk to Pooby5.com to see if they're interested in printing your shirt. If they are, you get $2/shirt sold. You can also sell it yourself using Spreadshirt.com or such places and charge whatever you like to get the profit you're looking for.
