Not quite the bargain price mentioned earlier or not nearly as identical as stated earlier. You are entitled to your opinion, and certainly don't have to vote for my shirt.



why does the price have anything to do with the originality of the design?

Thanks, they really turned out well.
I'm afraid I've become too seduced by the winsome witch that is the "woot-fake" halftone.

I'm most pleased by the curling-over wave, though, I think it worked great. and no halftones. :^D

This will be unprintable as you've designed over the entire shirt. There is a limited printable area.

Nicely done. Love the style. It reminds me a little of Shag's work.

Re: Tiki Chef Attack!



It's more violent than my usual entries, but I thought I tried a horror-styled shirt for a chance since most of my entries are cuter. I am rather proud how the tiki came out.

Yeah, I use Inkscape all the time. I downloaded the pre-release version of 0.47 to create this, and it has a few features that make the workflow a lot faster.

Thanks to everyone for the votes and the feedback!

The style you used on this reminds me a lot of the cell shaded games like okami which considering the color palette restrictions is a good thing. gmv.

Thanks for the comment, earthart! I really like your design--very intricate and beautiful. I wouldn't say that my execution is better than yours at all, because this is just awesome!

Thanks everyone! We all seem to have our places here at shirt.woot, and as much as tgentry likes to think his is perpetually in fourth place, mine seems to be perpetually in 15th and slowly climbing throughout the week. If only the polls stayed open for another three or four weeks...i might actually have something I do appreciate all the kindness though.

Wanted to mention that you don't have to use the colors Woot gives you on the template in your design, those are just the colors of the shirts they carry, they have a huge variety of inks from what I can tell.


I thought I read somewhere that they prefer those inks...? Gah, I can't remember, now. My brain is all mushy. I got a kick out of your dashboard luau dreams

Nice color and linework, but the whole thing feels really stiff. She's straight up and down, and the trees are also. This kind of Muchaesque art usually has the female figure in a flowy 'S' shape. Still pretty nice.

Re: Fire Dancer



Annajo, this is really beautiful. GMV. I have to admit, when I first saw this I thought the flames were converted from a photo. Now that I read through the thread (thank you for sharing your technique), I see that you rendered the flames yourself and it really is amazing. Thank you for your comment about my design. It is much appreciated. Best of luck remaining fog-bound.

OpenDesign, thank you very much for your comments. Much appreciated. And I do appreciate your comparison to yours, but I have to stick with my assessment. Yours is really unbelievable and super clean and the style is near and dear to my heart (the use of patterns, repetition, flow of shapes, using the same shape to represent multiple things). Simply put, it is right up my alley. I love it and wish you the best of luck with it (glad to see you are in the top ten now!). Thanks again and take care.

Thanks again folks, at this point I'm not gonna resubmit. But the chair issue was oversight on my part. Either way the water did take entirely way too long to do, especially with only Three shades of color and the shirt color.

bluchez wrote:Wow. Yeah. I can assure you that I was trying to actually prevent bickering in your thread by removing one iteration out of the argument (as most regulars would have recognized). When someone posts a pic without a link, tons of people usually come to the shirt's defense saying they have to prove that it's for sale. I simply followed the picture's URL (that someone else posted) and linked the website. I have not, nor do I have any desire to, searched for shirts related to anything in this derby.

But, I guess we now know how quickly you might be willing to become what you and your sister have so vocally spoken out against. Definitely interesting.



I'm the only one that has spoken out about anything... and all I’ve spoken out against is unnecessary meanness. She has said repeatedly that it was okay, she could handle it. She has been way more gracious than I was, obviously, in the face of all the nastiness. If you’re saying that looking stuff up is a mean thing, then you should understand that if you’re going to say mean underhanded things about peoples shirts, the least you should expect is for them to check out your standards for your own work in return. Same for posting a link to similar shirts. Whether it was an assist or not, probably not a good idea if you don’t want anyone to check and see if your shirt meets the same standard. Anyhow, you’re still going a little far with the “how quickly”. If this is meanness, it took her two whole days to snap… llo… I wouldn’t call that quickly!

I am being absolutely sincere when I say this: this has not been nastiness. At all. Of all the comments posted, only Dekon's struck me as being even close to a personal attack, and he apologized.

Saying this shirt doesn't look original is not underhanded. Showing linked proof of that is even less so, as it is a statement of fact (ditto for copy-paste issues). I'm not seeing any mean, except for an insult thrown at someone who thought the shirt was unoriginal.

Just chill bro, this is actually a pretty tame derby. If Woot feels the entry is legal according to their rules, it will remain. And that's as it should be.
