Re: bro-livia



I acknowledge that I made this one, and I am biased, but there is no logical reason for rejection here. I would LOVE an explanation. Perhaps I misjudged my audience here....it appeared to me that this was a site kind of "by geeks, for geeks"....who would be AGAINST finding out these types of guys have left the civilized world and gone somewhere else (obviously less civilized...as they are).

This was such an oppurtunity to make a statement, to publicly humiliate the type of people who humiliate geeks every day.

But again, I must have misjudged my audience. The ONLY people who could be offended by this shirt are the people it depicted....I am not interested in submitting future designs to a website that is now defending jocks, bro's, and capybaras.

Everything sounds like old radiators when you're in a land powered by steam.

I'm actually really surprised so few people have touched upon what I thought would be a popular style choice (steampunk). I made mine deliberately not too clockwork, but it looks like I could have pushed that further without blending in! Thank you for the compliments, too, I really appreciate it.

Re: The Lightforge Nation



Excellent design. I won't buy one because of the text (it doesn't add any value...even if i know why it's there). I would love to have a non-text version though...or to have wOOt do a Steampunk contest next time...I'd love seeing all of those designs.

This audience member, at least, likes her shirts to not deliberately offend anyone. Woot follows the same guidelines. If you're going to have a small tantrum over a fair rejection, then maybe it's good that you're not interested in submitting future designs to a website that defends humanity.

Thank you!! I was inspired by both Japanese healdry (known as Mon) and my cat, who is insanely cute, but so fierce of kitteny tooth and claw that no one would dare invade his territory!

I really wanted a large print, but I understand if you are worried about the size. I would like to mention that even though the print covers the maximum area, there is a lot of shirt showing around the design and through the design. This will allow the shirt to move and breathe better than smaller designs that are solid.

After long centuries they built a large city a mile beneath the Amazon Rain Forest. There they have flourished. At the center of their cultural identity is the concept of becoming whole or complete, symbolized by the circle.

That's the nutshell version, anyway.



Wow... great story. Is this part of a book or something that you're working on?

But it seems low down and part might be covered if tucked (of course i never tuck a tshirt in unless it's under another shirt).

Good job on making the fog so early... it deffinitely catches the eye.

Very clean lines and sharp details. Do you use Illustrator?

I've only seen one other steampunk entry. I really like your take on the theme btw, and the colour scheme is great!

Re: Myopia: Resub




The test on the shirt says:

The land where you hold things dear to you, near to you.

We hope to see you here!


(Resubmitted because I thought the original did not show a difference on the thumbnail between this full version, as well as the simpler, Version 2, that I uploaded earlier.)

Please leave feedback, both good and bad - Please! I want to learn

Re: Rouge Nation of Boiling Rigatoni



The Rouge Nation of Boiling Rigatoni, Rigatonia, has a history of war and tomato sauce shed. These noodles will not back down though, their motto: "No Matter How Hot The Water Gets, We Will Not Soften!"

I can see the work you put in and I think it really captures the spirt of paranoia as well as being a very cool shirt design. I love the expression on the horses' faces and how they're sort of tiptoeing around. Not to mention the motto. Love it <3.



I believe those are lions.

This shirt goes very well with this video.

Myopia: Where the glasses half useful.

Myopia: Where objects in the mirror may be sharper than they appear.

Make Myopia, Youopia!

BTW, just in case any of you are not sure, while Myopia is My World, the Dictionary.com definition of Myopia is:
–noun
1. Ophthalmology. a condition of the eye in which parallel rays are focused in front of the retina, objects being seen distinctly only when near to the eye; nearsightedness (opposed to hyperopia).

Where will this go on a shirt? Woot likes to see design placements on a shirt comp, and might reject this without one. Might wanna slap the design on a shirt and resubmit!



How does one slip the design in on a shirt, I could not figure out how to put it on the official Woot shirt PDF they have and change the base color of the shirt

Cool. I used to love working in illustrator. I've only got photoshop right now... much harder to get things perfect, but I'm learning to be better at it.

eHalcyon wrote:I believe "terra" would actually mean "land", which basically amounts to the same thing.

I was mistaken on the French, btw. French would be "doux". I recognized it from the Spanish, "dulce". And I suppose English "dulcet" would work as well. I took French in high school but I only know sporadic Spanish, which is why I said French earlier. My bad. I wish I actually knew Latin. I've got myself a Latin dictionary (for naming things in my unfinished novels).

Anyway, segue aside, here's one more huzzah for Candy Country!




Terra, land.. makes sense =D Nice job on the languages! I barely know spanish, I can say hi and thank you in German, and can recognize Japanese characters. (dunno what they say, though. l ol) French would be fun to learn, but it's hard for me to learn other languages =( All I know of French is La Mer, and all the words the Flight of the Conchords say in the song, 'Foux Da Fa Fa' =D

Thanks so much for the kind words; I like your cute fox =D
