Any way you slice it, it's entirely pathetic that you can't enjoy your life without trying to make someone else unhappy. Perhaps you should do some growing up before you release your fingers on someone else.



That was supposed to be replying to Adder, who should learn the power of constructive criticism...

Re: 2009 Year of the Ox



I can't say that I'm completely crazy about the design itself, but I think this style really suits you. I think you should keep going in this direction. It looks good.

I think it came out really well too. There's no telling what people will like though.

Technically speaking, even with your example, a single vote is still relatively meaningless...:-P.

Not crazy about the style you used for this one, but the idea, composition and colors are just great, D1. It gets my vote for that.

Re: The Creation of Artificial Intelligence



The Masterpiece "Creation of Adam" by Michelangelo from the Sistine Chapel in Rome has always been one of my favorite Piece of Art. Although I never been to Rome to see it up close. I would love to one day....we'll see. I hope everyone likes this design and I hope I didn't offended anyone. So here is the Second Chapter of a New Era. "Creation of AI"

Daughter is going on a Make A Wish trip to Disney in February and I would love to have this shirt to wear! Simple but not too much Disneyfied.

From what I can tell, Adder is helpful at times and not a bad person in some situations, but also very offensive and hypocritical in others. You really can't blame me for not liking him when he follows me around flaming me.



Yeah. I see your point. I just thought I'd jump in and say that I value Adder's opinion (which I do) since he always seems to have so many people against him. By the way, I'm hoping to get a really cool costume now that I've professed to being on the side of evil (or is it the side of good? Pssst... Adder, which side are we on?)

But if 10 people think their single vote is meaningless (that's 10 votes)... And if someone has five or six accounts, each with a purchase... In the Optimism derby, only 6 votes seperated the printed third place from the unprinted fourth place.
Remember, all the single votes added together equal the big picture.

Thanks! I found it ^.^

Anyway, I just wanted to say again that I really love this shirt... and if you print it (I hope with the text!) I really want to buy it.

I find myself wanting to follow Hector on his adventures. Would be a lovely Children's book series.

Gosh, I really want this... :D

BootsBoots wrote:You're not slow, you're probably just deeper-minded than me. It doesn't stand for or reference anything other than releasing caged birds (your standard new beginning cheesy symbolism, I guess). I like to put a lot of weird elements into my designs just to make them interesting. People can interpret them any way they want. That's part of the fun, I think. Like, the birds are kind of creepy looking, so maybe she's just released evil into the world, but feels that keeping it locked up was unnatural? I dunno. That wasn't going through my head at the time. I usually just try to make images that are slightly bizarre (hence the goggles and scarf) and that try to evoke some feeling. It's what I like.

Thanks, thanks, thanks for the comments, peeps. Both the good ones and the stinky ones.



Okay, this is my first post, so get ready...

My first interpretation was that it was the beginning of the journey the birds were taking her on. I saw a hint of aviation in her goggles and scarf and assumed that the birds were tangling in her hair and taking her away...is that not what you were going for?

Either way, it's a beautiful design.

Also, let us not forget forum dynamics. There are explanations for why someone would make a fake Adder account. If someone really wanted to be Sekiyoku that badly, they could just register Ramyb.

And there's also that little spurt earlier re: Ramy and Seki's questionable convention ethics. I feel there is plenty reason enough to be inquisitive.



Inquisitive? Certainly. But however suspicious I am, I avoid assumptions and give people the benefit of the doubt until some hard evidence shows up. sekiyuko could just be a crazy fangirl. And there is the point that, in all likelihood, if someone was to make an extra account for nefarious purposes, they wouldn't choose a username so close to their regular one.

In the past, there have been designs in the fog that ended only a single vote apart, not to mention several ties. I think sokowa's Lighthouse design in the Home derby lost by 1 vote.

That's actually pretty close to what was going on in my head when I did it. The goggles and scarf were an afterthought, but they seemed to fit in nicely. It was just a very vague idea, though. I didn't really think it was fleshed out enough to say, "Here! This is what I'm saying with this design!" Good call, though

(Yay to your first post! and I love your name)

Also the Water derby. We could have had Treacherous waters AND swimming Koi with one extra vote to the former, and a matter of 10 votes for any one of 2-4 could have completely altered the results.

As for matters of suspicion, I believe in innocent until proven guilty, but I also believe in knowing your suspects. If RobGlenn steals ideas, we approach his work presuming he did it again. If CheeseSandwich steals images, we approach hers wondering where she got it. And if a user is known to create multiple accounts at other locations and use unsavory methods of self-promotion, we should be incredibly realistic that at a site where nearly everyone seems to have extra accounts, the chance of any given user having a second vote account is very high, and occam's razor states that someone associated in account fraud elsewhere has a very good chance of it somewhere where those accounts can make them serious bank. Unless we assume that someone was so blown away by seki's work that they created a fan account within 20 days of her first entry to the derby, before she ever even printed at woot. I prefer the tinfoil hat. I'd rather be alert and wrong than let my guard down when I shouldn't.
