You're right, it can. That's a very interesting point you make. It's so insightful and I appreciate how it takes into consideration both art and relationships. I like you a lot. You must be very intelligent and I'll bet you're attractive too.

May I have a vote please?

Agreed. Detroit has been the second fastest emptying city (in the US) in the last few years.

Number one is New Orleans.


In fact, I heard of a home that sold there for a hundred bucks.

HalfWheat wrote:As a voter and purchaser, I'd like to know how many changes an artist can make to a design between what's being voted on and what actually goes to print.

And if an artist plans on making changes to a design, I'd like that to be disclosed. In some cases, a fixed design might get more votes if an error is off-putting. In other cases, the change might lose votes for the design. But if I'm voting, I want to know what I'm voting for - or not voting for.

The problem I have with the changes to this design are not necsssarily the results to the shirt. But that perhaps this shouldn't have been left up for voting and changed after, but it should have been resubmitted with the corrections.

I don't know - would other artists have resubbed to make these corrections to the book and the colors at the bottom? Are they all allowed to make design changes like this on the print file without those changes being shown during the derby?

If other artists would have resubbed to make changes like this, then the problem I have is that this design might not have printed, depending on when the new version would have emerged as a resub. In which case, the fourth place shirt would have printed. And that's not fair at all to the fourth place shirt.

If other artists would not have been allowed to make these sorts of changes, I think Woot owes the fourth place shirt an EC and a print.



I am pretty sure Cho's "Baha I has nets too" got printed as originally mocked despite cho fixing a detail. A much more minor one, and one that would have fixed, not altered, the design.

The definite fact, though, is that some people get to do whatever they want and not face any consequences, and others have to follow the rules to a T and even then get shafted. And it NEVER works out in favor of people who know what art is.

The half-tones you submitted to woot are different from the half-tones in your comp.

They are different because you made finer half-tones for the comp and then submitted coarser half-tones to woot



Looking at the original comp and then the print ready file, it seems (to my layman's eye) that Mr. Wed is absolutely right here. The halftones look much finer to me on the original, to the point where I actually wondered if they were gradients instead of halftones. Is there anyone besides ramy, especially any designers, that isn't seeing the difference Wednesday is pointing out here?

That being said, I can't remember who brought up the picture of the Blue Moon shirt earlier in the thread, but there are all kinds of reasons why the shirts could've photographed differently. The quality of the optics, the shutter speed, or the strength of the flash, any of it could have a drastic effect on the end-result. Rarely do I see two pictures of the same shirt in the shirt thread where the colors match up exactly.

jewelwing wrote:If you decide not to vote for this because of the bottom text, well then, I say - not fair. That's only like 10% of the shirt. Not even that much really. It's just a tiny silver at the bottom. I like simple numbers tho, so lets go with that.

If that's how you feel, it means that you DO like 90% of the shirt. Isn't 90% pretty good? If I brought this home from school it'd have an A on it, and I'd think I deserved a treat. And by treat I mean vote. So gimmie.



I'm not trying to say it isn't a good design, and if this were for a grade, I'd give it an A, or if it were a "this is good" vote, then I would vote for it. However, the vote is for if I would want to buy one or not, and as much as I like the design, I have to say that I would not buy it, so I can't vote for it. Similarly, I would not vote for a cool physics shirt if it said "physics is boring" or something like that on it.

I don't mean to offend you by not voting on it. It it a good design. It's just that the text makes it something I would not wear.

Even for a small run. -sigh I'm afraid I'm at the mercy of Woot..or Cameesa..or Teefury..or someone else ^^;.



Forgive this question coming out of total ignorance, but why don't you simply sell it on spreadshirt or some online producer with no upfront costs?

tgentry wrote:I'm curious if woot said anything about this, or the addition of the dragon body? I know in the past I've thought of redoing certain elements of my designs after letting them soak in for a few days but have been wary of woot rejecting it as not resembling the comps. I've done some very minor corrections, but the total reworking of the book and addition of the dragon's body strike me as pretty major decisions. Where this might affect things is this: you won third place by 12 votes; is it possible that 12 people might not have voted for the design because they didn't like the white lines going across the flames? There's obviously no way to know for sure, but when changing things up you're essentially taking the decision making out of the hands of the voters. I'm not trying to flame, bi-ch, or harass, I'm more interested in what boundaries woot is setting for things that will influence my own submissions so I can act accordingly. If they don't really mind reworking the design that's a plus for me (a very big plus, as I could have swapped a certain deco eagle with a nice deco penguin), but people voting on the designs might disagree. Again, I'm just trying to find out what the guidelines for this is and if they've discussed it all with you.



i would be very interested to know the reply you get ont his either from ramyb or woot. can you please make the information you find public, if it is not?

Well, I did consider it, but there's a few things that make me a hesitant. One being the quality of the shirt's print. I have never gotten shirts from places like CafePress or Spreadshirt. Is the printing pretty good? I would hate to have people recieve something shoddy in the mail .

Second, outside of places like Woot, Threadless, etc, it's very hard to direct traffic to other tee sites. Seems like you'd just be lost in the crowd. What's nice about places like this is that there is a huge trafficflow.

I won't be able to do anything with the designs for a good couple of months, so it's out of my hands for now. ^^ Thanks for your suggestion though! I will definately look at options later on. :D

a photo for the basis of a rejection is only valid if the photo cannot be proven to be either public domain or belonging to the person using it. in this case the poster took the photo HIMSELF--which means he is the owner of it, and will not be rejected for that.
in those other cases on this site where you see "photo" being the reason for rejection, the poster had stolen the image from someone else--be it through a google image search or an artist's site. these images were never claimed to be owned by the poster, nor had the photographer's consent to be used on this t-shirt.




apparently you is right.

which was apparently at 4:36 PM eastern time.

I'm sorry about this, after my first post, it just kicked me out to the bottom of the page, I thought. I looked, didn't see it, and thought it hadn't posted. When it happened a second time, I started trying to figure out why, and saw ramy's name listed as last post, leading to this post. I'm going to try a couple of things and see if I can get it to work again. sorry for the double post.



I, too, am seeing problems. I post to a specific shirt's thread and when I click on post I'm automatically taken to the end of the blog where all posts are supposed to go --and it's not there. So, it's not just you. There's still something wonky going on with this site.

I knew that going in and switched it on purpose... I've had things rejected by woot for copyright issues... they're really picky (yes even on a 10 instead of a 9, that's A Disney copyright...)

LOL. i love it. Unfortunately, people think that sign was just put up during this election. That sign has been there for YEARS!

decades even!

but don't say anything about it... there are far too many people who think Obama is the savior of the world. When are people going to figure out that the answer to our problems doesn't come from the White House, DC or Congress!

They are the CAUSE of our problems. Not just Spend-it-All Obama. He's not the first deficit loving president. His predecessor, George W. was spending just as fast.
