Modern day gadgets/equipment for the Victorian era spy. I noticed, prior to submitting, that a lot of the pieces people were planning to submit lacked any wood, so I aimed to correct that with this piece. Hope you all enjoy it.

Josephus wrote:Gosh, I guess you really don't care for criticism of your shirt, though there may be a chance that you just bought it and didn't create it. First of all, my major criticism of that shirt was that it promoted huffing. Maybe the artist didn't intend that and woot's writing staff decided to stir up some controversy by writing it up the way they did, I can't know. But, as I said in my original post, I've seen one little boy who was doing as hinted at by the shirt design to be hip and cool. I know that one doesn't ever really recover from that sort of brain damage, so I feel no remorse at criticizing the apparent point of the design. Woot picked that design, so my comment, which was directed at them. not at the designer, seems to me to be completely valid. They missed the mark, in choosing to sell a design like that one. It doesn't fit in with their quite strict "PG-13" self-description, and that seems a fair representation of the shirt.

As far as you finally finding a design of mine to rip on, well done! This design, whose point you may not have grasped, was meant to show that steam power is not the clean and pretty pseudo-Victorian world depicted in the movies like The Golden Compass and many so-called 'Steam-punk' designs. Steam is dirty, and blows up in your face pretty often, as it did to this wombat. I suppose I didn't really get that across as well as I wanted to, and that disappoints me. Still, there are plenty of far more controversial designs for you to enjoy without any need to build yourself up to a rage, so enjoy the rest of the derby!




quite defensive for some open wondering and a few questions. my misreading of your comment compares not to the askew version you have adopted towards mine.
i simply read 'you woot people' as 'the consumer' which i stated in my comment, hence the entire foundation for my reaction. a response clearing that up was all that was needed and would have brought an apology.

however, you seem to think i felt personally attacked that you had a problem with a picture that i liked and have reduced a few paragraphs of someone calling you out to 'rage'. talking down to someone because they may have missed your wombat concept puts you in a world i do not comprehend, so maybe i did miss it. but, thinking on it, i'm sure i'm better off that way. i wasn't ripping on your design, i was calling you out on your high and mighty definition of 'cool'.

wow, you managed to take a completely awesome steampunk robot and ruin it with a cartoon dog.

Ditch the dog and resub.

It is pretty well rendered. But it doesn't gain any points for originality.

Re: Rustic



I intended it to be rougher rather than clear, I think of steampunk being grungier than it is a lot of times, its fun having a little rough around the edges design sometimes.

Thanks everyone! I enjoyed working on this one more than I thought I would.

@tgentry - Don't worry, I'll try it out elsewhere.

@Jestik - That's a nice compliment! I've been perusing her work lately, so maybe she's rubbing off on me.

I guess I didn't see that in the way you wrote your post. As I misunderstood you, I'm happy to apologize. I really was directing my original criticism to the woot staff who chose the shirt, and chose to present it in the way that they did. It's been 4 derbies now, since that shirt was printed, so I'll ask you to forgive me for feeling like the comment came out of left field. I do confess that I feel like I missed the mark myself on the design I intended and the way it came out this week. I wanted the wombat to look like he'd been in an explosion, hence the torn up gear around his neck, but I neglected to include the steam piston I wanted attached to it, and he somehow ended up less dirty and blackened than I intended. I suck.

Really appreciate it. I don't have as much confidence here with the short time limit. Having to get a design in pretty much on the first day to even have a chance is rough, so the positive feedback helps.

Don't feed the flame by responding to people who don't like your design. Who cares if it's like the grim reaper, everybody has a style and it's always bound to repeat itself sometime. No biggie to me.

I think the design is well done. I'd consider voting for it if you resub and either replace the dog with perhaps a steampunk dog or plant or animal or whatever, just more steampunk to keep the theme. You can get the same effect that you are going for imo.

Keep up the good work, and submit some animals again. Who cares what people do not like, it's the people who like it that matters most. If they don't like it, then they don't have to vote for it. It's easier to do then complain about somebody's design. ;)

Re: Steamy Hollow



I can't seem to get it below 8 colors. Do black and white count towards the 6 total?

And why do I see entries that include colors not in the specifications? Are the colors for Illustrator different than those for Photoshop?

I like the sketch 10X more than the one on black. There's too much lost in translation from white to black.

Hey thanks man! I know I'm somewhat lacking in art skills, but I feel like I'm coming along somewhat, and getting a feel for what will actually work on a t-shirt. I think this is one of my first designs that is wearable. I appreciate all your help and interest over my time at woot Elway! =) You got me started man. =]

Well, I'll at least take a little comfort in your kind words about the rendering since I was very concerned at the outset that I wouldn't be able to render anything in this style.
