If it'd help with votes I could probably do some color changing today.

I'm pretty disappointed with the amount of votes this shirt is getting so I'd like some feedback of what I could do different. Especially if it's just colors or something.



Hmmmm well, you could possibly swap the two main colors - make the rest of his uniform a dark brown (hat and pants) and make the shirt a kelly green or something. I'm not sure. Sorry you're not getting more votes, this is a very creative design =( stupid colorful stolen sequoia shirts be dammed! (not tgentry's- you know which ones I'm talking about)

I know, man it's just so tough. I didnt even get the idea til way late, then I stayed up all night trying to eek it in as quick as possible.

Awww well, it was a valiant effort, and now this deranged image exists upon the earth for us all to giggle at :D.

Poop, so it just got rejected... I wasn't really expecting it to get the hundreds of votes it needed to at least make honorable mention in a few days anyways though...
Please please please can you take this to cafepress or something?? I am dying to get this shirt. I will reward you with 1,000 free internets. Or something like that.
Thanks

lol. guess u were right. i guess animals in a park are not the same as the park itself.

i really need to learn more about the way these rejections work cause it really is like splitting hairs to me. i mean, my entry of a chef popping out of a stove for last weeks cooking theme was rejected because chefs and stoves/ovens apparently have nothing to do with cooking!

i'm sure the patterns will become more clear to me in a few more weeks, but in the future please give reasons why u think any entries i post may be rejected. i really want to figure out the details (like some interesting posts i read this week about the fine line between parody and copyright infringement) so that i don't keep wasting hours and hours on all of these entries to have them rejected because they are off-topic, despite my having designed them with the topic in mind (i have made 5 original submissions in 3 weeks and 3 were rejected as off-topic to much surprise on my part).

Awesome! John Muir and the work he did to help found/protect places like Yosemite and Mt. Rainier is totally inspirational!

So long as they still wait 60 days, they can do whatever they want with it. Woot still retains the rights to any and all designs entered for 60 days, even if it's rejected.

genericsmith wrote:Good catch... I wonder if the art theives actually think they'll get away with it.



People such as Olechka and Brainbox have finagled multiple prints at other sites, even after their work has been proven to be mostly tracework of other people's pictures and, in the latter case, unaltered thievery of old sci-fi illustrations.

The fact is, somewhere down the barrel, people decided that art doesn't belong to the artist. Not in an MP3 downloading way, but in a "you made this, so I'll take it, and sell it as mine" way. This site alone, week after week, fails to see how trite, derivative, and even stolen work is WRONG, and the antithesis of art.

Edit: which is, by the way, one more reason woot needs to knock voting's importance down a peg.

I think this definitely would be in the fog if it'd been up on Friday. Bass, stay up all night on Thursday so you can submit a great batch of designs first thing when the Derby starts.

I believe it still has a chance. You have to clap if you believe in bearsplosions! Or... just tell your friends. This is too good a shirt to lose momentum now

The problem is, I usually dont think of good stuff til it's too late..awww. I will see what the next derby is. I may need to sit one out to do some other work stuffs, but I really enjoy the race. It's fun to watch and see all the great stuff. :D

Although there appears to be some uncertainty, as to the degree of flexibility and exact purpose of Stegosaurus's spiny tail, I like to think of it as a magnificent weapon, especially useful when pursued, by the fiercesome jaws of a ravenous T-rex.



Ohhh, it was supposed to go through. XD

I obviously failed to realize that; the dark colors deceived my eyes. ;P

mrwednesday wrote:Not the first time might I add. If you check his stuff on SDS there are a few shirts that got rejected that I never even saw before. His little japan collage got rejected the first time around too but I have no idea why.



The shirt was indeed rejected and I removed it, just because of the way that woot has things now where the shirts stay in their current ranking in the middle of the contest when sorted by votes. I couldn't remove this one because it was outside of its first 24 hours.

As for the "japan collage," it wasn't actually ever rejected. SDS seems to have a weird glitch or something where, if a shirt is removed when it doesn't have any votes yet, it comes up as rejected rather than removed (or something along those lines, I haven't done it enough times to know for sure, it might have something to do with the amount of time that it is up)- I posted it several times with the wrong comp/thumbnail/file, etc. and deleted quickly- same thing happened with the dragon maiden design that shows rejected (the thumbnail and comp didn't match correctly so I deleted and reposted immediately). Not sure what causes it, but neither of those designs were actually rejected (there was no reason for them to be, considering that other versions of them that were nearly identical were allowed).

I hope this qualifies for "national park" because the shirt is very well done and wearable.

I'll send you a message after 60 days if I don't get an honorable mention, I'll put it up on cafepress or somewhere comparable (cafepress can get a bit expensive for the buyer I'd like to find a cheaper alternative for my shirts that don't make it...)

In the meantime I fixed the shirt now go over and re-vote!

I can only figure it was rejected due to the 'Smokey' hat reference, seeing that is copyrighted.

Re: Floating Rock National Park



After all the times I've pondered why so many 2D platformer games involve floating rocks (or boxes, blocks, bricks, scaffolds, castles, islands, and so on...), or how they stay afloat forever... this shirt really puts a little spotlight on this strange phenomena.

Thanks a ton for the comments and suggestions. I agree that the pixels look off, because I made each item, then ended up resizing them, and completely changing the look of everything. I won't do that in the future.

This is climbing pretty darn fast, and there's still 2 days left. This may make it to the fog, but if not, I think you'll probably have your second HM in a row. This shirt is amazing!
