Ha ha ha thanks Jimiyo, I think perhaps I might have peaked with this design. It's all downhill from here.

I have 5 black tees (3 woot), 1 kelly green woot, 1 grass green woot, 1 royal blue woot, 1 asphalt woot and that's it for woots. So I exaggerated a bit, but I am not really a t-shirt girl (funny how woot has changed that). I'm guessing 7 woot shirts is not a big deal, and 10 tshirts total isn't too excessive. (I have about 30 tank tops.)

I really want a navy and a cranberry shirt. I had a navy one but I decided I couldn't handle the cream in the design and sold it for a loss.

Re: Life Renewed



This is the first phoenix item ever that has not only tempted me, but has me making grabby hands at my monitor. I will absolutely buy this, though I do wish it didn't have:

-the diagonal stripe accenting
-black background (yes, appropriate and visually appealing, but TOO MANY BLACK SHIRTS, and I think navy would be rad, with the current blueish design as a cobalty-purple (purple against orange is especially awesome)

But, those are not huge quibbles. I love the mix of dramatic, artsy fantasy with the cute (but not cutesy) baby phoenix - it's a really unique take. <3

It's like the dragons, giant squid, kraakens, & unicorns...basically any popular fantasy creature is going to be appealing because many of us are very nerdy and were you find nerds, you find fantasy.

DeadFrog- this shirt is absolutely adorable. If/when it prints, im getting myself one. and one for my boyfriend! what a cute idea for the derby theme!
true, you didnt invent the teenage mutant ninja turtles, but using that idea for this "Beginnings" derby is perfect!
I support this design and you and i cant wait to wear this shirt!

Gizmoduck,

Yes, I interpreted your "direct shot from the movie" comment as having a bit of a copyright infringement tone to it. If that is not what was meant by it, sorry that my interpretation was off.

I'm sorry you don't like my design and I am sorry that it has irritated you enough to come here and toss around insults.

I do like my design. I never said I was trying to be "original" (if anything in this day and age can be classified as original) or some creative genius. I know the story, but like I said I have never seen the movies. I thought TMNT would work for this derby theme as it is iconic enough for people to get it when they see it. In its own way it symbolizes a beginning to a much enjoyable part of my childhood (and probably several others).

Re: Genesis in the Mind



Beautifully intricate and almost mesmerising, as well as fantastical and mythological...I'd buy it. I don't totally like how large the design is or the head as a feature, but I see that it's important for the concept. I also think another colour shirt would work better. Still, lovely art.

You know, people rarely leave the good ol' "this stinks" comment on my designs. This is probably because I never get printed and they all feel sorry for me, so they just keep their mouths shut. I see your stinky comment as a light at the end of the tunnel. Soon more stinky comments will follow! Soon everyone will beat me with hate sticks and I will win a derby! Sweet.

Hmm, actually, I guess I don't have "too many". I have 2 each of black, navy and asphalt. Then I have 1 each of olive, white, creme, cranberry, royal blue, kelly green and baby blue. This is only counting woots I've gotten for myself. I also have Insomnia from Threadless (kelly green), which is probably my favourite shirt of all time.

I don't quite understand. A 10% tint? I didn't think we could use tints? I thought that they are spot colors and we had to use the pure color. Did I misunderstand them, or did they change that, or did I misunderstand you?

I really like the diagonal lines in lieu of using halftones or crosshatching. A very elegant solution.

Not sure what I'd do... I took the color straight from woot's template. Thanks for the advice. I'll check to see why it is off...

Well you've got the correct colour in your design detail image. It's just the comp that seems off.

Re: Gonna Be Big in Japan



Jimiyo, I'm glad you're exercising some futility with the rest of us wooters. This design is interesting, mainly because it's far removed from what we normally see from you. What's the inspiration? I can see some early Japaneses print style here, which would explain why I don't dig the colors that much. I am excited to see unicorns farting in Jimiyo style.

koi. I did not see that. The irony of putting that in bold, is that I only read the brief text above it. Will remove it.

At 10% sounds like a tint, which you'd be correct, they don't do. You'll have to find a spot color that is similar to it or just use white. This may not be cause for a rejection though as I hear they might match it themselves with something similar.
