Re: My Giant Award Winning 8 Bit Weiner



I thought a low central placement would be a little too... whats the word... apparent or obscene?

I hear tree ants can have attitudes anyways, so this shirt would be perfect for displaying its apparent boob discontent.



Hahahaha... the word boob is not filtered in the singular, but in the plural it comes out as tree ants. :-)

I love this design. But Mrs. Risse... you should really link both images in your signature to your design. I clicked the big part that says "vote" and, of course, nothing happened. I'll buy 2 of these so my daughter and I can sport matching threads. All the stuffed animals at our house cuss way too much. This will be their fair warning to cease and desist, or face the bitter consequences.
Chris should've been printed already, imo. More than once. But I digress... Alright... best of luck to the both of you.



Keri is a very funny gal and when she has the chance to show humor visually you get something like you see here. Keri and I have already determined our son will be comedic genius, but we never though about artistic comedic genius.

Good luck with your kids, our isn't talking yet, but I am sure he will pick up something nasty eventually. I'll try hard not to laugh hysterically while I think of an appropriate punishment.

Oh yeah, and thanks for noticing my designs and the boost in confidence!

I'm glad there are still a couple days left in this derby for this to get into the fog.

Re: blue angel



Every week I am amazed with what is in the fog and what isn't. I honestly feel this should be fogged, no problem. But what do I know, I can't get my own designs to stay in the fog. Nice design, deserves better.

Re: Wall Pixels



clean, simple, and pleasing to the eye... a quality missing from a lot of pixel designs, even fogged. I think this accomplishes the removal of the harsh edges produced by pixels by getting the viewer's eyes to ignore them. Great job.

Thanks very much. This one has be crawling up the charts since the first submission... slow and steady, just like a turtle. :-)

Of course, foxes are known to be clever. Perhaps this slow crawl is a sly plan for the fox to stealthily sneak its way into printing without anyone being the wiser for it. :-)

At any rate, I do very much hope this winds up getting printed... thanks to everyone who has been helping it get there. There's still enough time for it to make it to the fog, and it's really REALLY close to getting there. :-)

Nicely done, but I do agree with moving the placement lower.

I have learned that designs do need endurance in the derby, glad to see this has it.

I was pretty excited about this one until the music was added in the background. I am not usually so critical about designs, but the guitar alone was beautiful and didn't need too much in the background to support it.

Re: Big Wheel



I loved peeling out on mine, to the point I wore holes in the big wheel. It wasn't too long after that my knees started hitting the handle bars and I moved on to the bike.

Yeah, tell me about it. I've had designs up in the fog early on that didn't manage to stay there all week. Or that made it to the fog but took fourth place when all was said and done. Hopefully this one can make it to at least third place and stay there. :-)

It does seem to lose some of its appeal when shown within the more correct printing guides.



If placed to the side where it currently is, at the correct size, I think this is going to be a weird placement on women (or at least this woman). It is going to fall right below the chest or right on top of... yeah.

While I believe tjf's resize image is a good approximation of actual printed size, the placement is lower than it has to be, so no need to worry about that. I think the size itself would be the biggest concern, especially considering that the same size print goes on different shirt sizes. They only use two different design sizes for all the shirt sizes.

So they print say one size on S/M and the other size on L+ shirts? How much higher on the shirt is it going to appear then? I've been trying to visualize this as an actual shirt with the correct placement so all the info is a great help! Thanks!

Have you seen computer that spits out binary programming in vertical columns? I haven't. They never said "no movie/literary references".

If I named it "musical notation waterfall" would it be better?

Edit: I wonder if it's vertical in asian software... that'd be weird.

Either way, the intention was that instead of seeing the world in 1 and 0, you'd see it in musical notation (as I'm sure some composers do).

I mean, if you want to reject a reference of a reference, why not reject all pixelated hearts because they're used extensively in games?

Oh well. Back to techno makin.
