What initially caused the conflict, was it the 'Duelling Pucker" instrumental in that movie where Ned Beatty took the role he could never live down?

Re: The Awesome Mix Tapes



Seen that movie but don't remember this particular scene. I think this is an awesome shirt, with a little tweaking I feel it definately could be a fog contender. I love a good mixtape shirt

Really sad this didn't get more votes, but if ever anything deserved an editors choice this is it.

agreed. and boring too. If you're spanking someone infinitely, it certainly doesn't say much for the creativity in the rest of your arsenal.

Though I suppose it explains what sort of person would enjoy this shirt.

It's a great scene. I found a clip on You Tube of the entire scene HERE if anyone wants to see where this idea came from.

Re: Monsters Of Cowbell World Tour



Wait. . .the Monsters of Cowbell don't come here to TX? HELLO?!?!? Yes, we have 6th St. in Austin and Woot!, but we also have cows. Lots and lots of cows. Plus, the University of Texas has a cow mascot and a bunch of old ladies who do nothing but ring cowbells during football games. As much as I love the idea, I can't vote for such an oversight.

Hate to say it, but I think you have a point. I have to think the only thing holding this shirt down is the name of the band.

It is certainly arguable that woot is not a legit shirt site, but still, take it to cafepress. Start "The Dojo of the Same Design 100 Ways" and rake in your profits. There is no reason we should have to deal with anything this uninspired week after week.

ORIGINAL AND EXCLUSIVE shirts, says the FAQ. None of these are original. They are the same exact thing every 15 year old with a mangafetish draws. Every shirt looks the same. Every concept is stale. As for exclusive, that is only because there is no other shirt site out there who would accept this level of work



I know, dude, I know...
I don't like his style either, but I do think he could put out better "ideas" with his style.
Really, I don't care what people's styles are, even if it is mangafetish. I just can't stand things that are off-theme or unshirtable. There's no excuse for it. A design shouldn't ever need explanation for why it's on theme; it should be undeniably spot-on, themewise and shirtability. I don't know the last time I saw a Ramyb design that was either or both.

BTW, rarely have I seen a designer answer criticism with less grace, ensmind. I feel your pain, man, I really do--some can be less than polite in their critiquing (I'll admit, sometimes that's even me). That being said, sniping back and being even nastier will not do wonders for your rep.

The last time I did was on deviantart. Over there, drawing pointless desu is always on topic ;)

As for here, I would argue even his best done piece was "off" in some area. Many weren't even on theme. Quite a few pushed common rejection boundaries. Even when he tried on a piece like "the open sea," it looked too blotchy like a live trace. But as I've well learned, art is written by the victors. You sell something, and it becomes worth something. It's the Walmart mentality... I get what I want, and I get it cheap, and by wanting it and getting it cheap, it is the best.

The designers with the worst reputations are the ones that make the most bank in the derbies. Think about it and tell me that "reputation" means ANYTHING. The only people who are effected are the ones who dare question what rises to the top. If you're in the right with the drones, you could eat babies on video and they'd defend you.

Seriously, though, the meteoric rise of this tee makes me pretty repulsed and totally baffled. I cannot honestly justify how this could do that legitimately, and it makes me wish woot had the sense of honor to investigate.

nbouscal, I just have to say, thank you for staying reasonable and admitting that while entries that take a little more work and have more "artistic integrity" (whoever decides what that is) would be preferable to cutesy dime-a-dozen gag shirts, WOOT is a BUSINESS. There's a reason that cutesy dime-a-dozen shirts are such. They sell. I think that DF really understands this and that's where the first pandas came from same with lion, witch, wardrobe, and the turtles. I don't know what adder finds to be so epicly important about silly t-shirts unless he is like others using money made from sites like this to live on, and then I feel for him a bit- but, really, spend more time promoting your design and saying why it is good rather than trashing on an intelligent artist who has the market figured out. ... ... wow that got off topic... I just wanted to say thank you for staying rational!


P.S. love the idea behind the pi shirt, hate the actual shirt along with others.

Yeah, woot . . . woot doesn't really investigate anything. If they didn't look into a pair of designers winning (at least one of them) practically every week they're not going to look into a single, improbable rise (note I said improbable, not impossible, so cool your jets, ensmind--I'm not accusing you of anything).

It's just kind of a shame. If woot never audits their voting system, the end results can never really be fully trusted, whether or not suspicious activity pops up. They could easily solve this, of course, by ending the practice of votes being the sole determinant for print-worthiness in the derbies, but I'm not holding my breath

It's an excellent illustration, clearly a band shirt (not all of the shirts near the top fit this, believe it or not), great color choices, and he (apologies if I used the wrong pronoun) picked a good blank for the design to rest on.

Oh, and robots are cool

While it does resemble it if you don't have the original for reference, I feel there is too much of a difference for it to be considered anything but a parody of the Alive cover.
