Thanks crocofish, I'm glad you're still a fan of the design. I don't wish to repost that entire bit about the design process here, but it's still in the original entry thread, about half way down for anyone interested. Don't forget that the "vote" button is here for this derby though! ;)

Would a designer be allowed to resub this design in this derby with a different message?



Hi - thanks for your interest. Someone else actually made the same comment near the end of the derby this was originally in. No, woot won't let me change anything about it. But, if it doesn't get printed here then I can change it for another site.

Re: energy harvester



This is an amazing design. I'm extremely picky about what I buy here, and usually only go for the flowery, girly stuff, but I'm a lifelong fan of sci-fi too, so this one will be a definite purchase. And thank you, thank you, thank you for NOT putting it on asphalt. Cranberry works just fine. Love it, GMV.

Here is the text the redghia69 mentioned...

This design started as a pencil sketch of the framework, about 8x10, which I scanned in and drew over in Corel Draw (a vector drawing program) so I could be precise with all the parallel lines.

The red lines (going all the way to the edges) were added to allow me to use the magic wand to select the outside areas, which were otherwise unbound. I exported that as an .ai file (still vector based) and opened it in PhotoShop at 16x20, 300dpi, anti-aliased unchecked. (I hadn’t noticed the “anti-aliased” checkbox before. Good to know.)

The rest was about selecting each cell and painting inside them, which I did one at a time. Some cells took a few tries to get the right color combination. The outside cells (where most of the green is, and where I was trying to suggest “tree” or at least leafiness) were painted individually and later en-masse, with the thought of bringing them together a little more.

For the painting itself, I created a “brush” from another shape I made in Corel Draw

and set up some randomization of placement (“Scattering” under “Brushes” in PhotoShop) to keep it from being too “perfect”. I used a tablet to do the painting -- a tablet wasn’t exactly necessary for this design, but it was of course nice to have, and I used the pressure sensitivity to control the size of the lines. (Another brush setting was used to keep the lines from getting too small -- woot won’t guarantee a line under 4-5 pixels at 300 dpi will print.)

That was the method, but there was more experimentation. My first attempt at this design had the paint lines following the angles of the framework, but it was really hard to make out what the picture was supposed to be. I didn’t even keep a copy. It took a little more experimentation before I realized horizontal paint alone was going to work the best.

I hope that proves insightful!

My favorite sashimi... I can't vote (until I buy this shirt), so would somebody undecided vote this for me?

This would go great with http://shirt.woot.com/Forums/ViewPost.aspx?PostID=1851821

I'll buy any shirt with a They Might Be Giants reference that nobody will ever get.

But I'm a niche.

Re: El Prospector Cansado



Thanks for all the prospector support. I had a nagging feeling it just doesn't have that kind of mass appeal, but I appreciate the support from those of you that like it.

Re: Attack of the Summer Blockbusters!



I loved this shirt in the Summer Derby, and wished it could've gotten printed with some type of tie so the others got printed too...

hopeful that this will move back into the fog!
