Re: Recurring Nightmare


My friend, I would buy this shirt. I quite like it. Especially the more doodle-style drawing in the dream bubble. It tickles me funny bone, heh. In for a vote.

Re: Don't Forget Your Scarf RESUB

WHY IS THIS NOT IN THE FOG???
I need this design on my body, post-haste. I may only be one vote, but I'll click the "I'd Want One" button very hard, in the hopes that it intimidates the Derby into making my vote more powerful.

Re: Melvillian Nightmare (resub)

I love the concept and design, for the most part. In for a vote from me.

Not sure what, though, but the mouth is bothering me. That's not what I picture baleen to look like, for some reason, but I can't describe why, heh. Maybe it's also the oddly squared angles on the bottom jaw.

I really like the drawing and composition here.
I can tell this one took a while to illustrate. It's cool how you have the guy grabbing at the placemat as well.

Fantastically amazing and terrific job you two.

Drak, you could have easily composed some incredible epic monster for this derby, but you took things a whole step further with this design. There is so much concept to it, it's just phenomenal.

Crescent Debris, your colors are beautiful on this, and they compliment Drak's fantastic line work excellently.

Wow are you really saying people are not allowed to like what they like? Art is a personal thing and not something based in logic. Why do you think that science shows they come from two different sides of the brain? You want to talk about thinking logically, but that really is not the side of the brain that processes art. Well atleast not for most people. So while you think that you are so superior and understand logic so much more than everyone else, you are not thinking logically when you believe that logic should dictate peoples taste in art.

This is what makes art interesting. You either like it or you dont. There is not always something that you can put in words. It is supposed to invoke a feeling. And feelings are not logical. Allthough, I am sure that I can find a few logical reasons for my growing distaste for you.

Re: Behold a pale horse...



ROFL! And not about the design. Agenda for the day: 1-check Woot and Shirt.Woot; 2-Check Derby for fog/new designs/comments - maybe offer up one myself; 3-find threads on ramyb and/or seki designs for amusement factor. I'm sorry - I don't mean to offend anyone who takes these things so very seriously, but so much angst is pointless. Woot wants to sell shirts. Check out the "What is Shirt.Woot" if you don't recall that.
Ramyb designs are cute. Seki designs are generic. And they sell. LOTs. One of my personal fave designers is Drakxxx (got Valkyrie on right now), but his darker stuff doesn't sell as well. I kind of consider the three as relative equals, in terms of artistic ability. The difference lies in style, imagination and (probably) intent. Honestly, every week there are derby submissions that are just dismal - horrendous line drawings and inept cartoons... I hate that 'it's a clever idea and I can toss off a quick sketch to illustrate it' style. But I try to remember that, while I really, really appreciate the artistic caliber of many of Woot's contributors and am very disappointed when a favorite doesn't print, it's still about popular opinion. Art is a bonus. We just have to live with the fact that some styles don't suit us, that silly tourist-shop pun Tees sell better than more artistic stuff, and that the really awesome art doesn't always get printed. (And yet the artists keep submitting, which I REALLY appreciate!)
I know I'm not going to stop all the debates with this post - y'all do what you do. Remember, though - you could be stuck wearing nothing but Balloon Boy and Haiku tees...

(this is about the shirt Oh, somebody dropped their teddy bear)


This is truly creepy and scary. You are in touch with your fears!I would wear this to the basement to say "beat it ghouls!I'm not afraid of you!
My shirt is waaay scarier than anything you can dish out!" You know sort of as a talisman. I thought the little boy in front of the audience (your shirt?right?) Was absolutely the cutest little thing, very precious.People used to draw little bare rumpys all the time in the 20's and 30's but now it 's a different world ,so your solution, I thought was well done.

Awwww! So nice that she's a big sister! Good luck with your awesome designing and with those two precious babies.You can see my babies in bear at the window design which has an exciting 7 votes! Next time I'm leaving mommy out of the picture and leaving in the kids. Much more mass appeal that way.

Re: ...and then I'm standing on a stage...



This shirt is so cute.It really is. I think you handled the nudity in the best possible way for this particular design. I think it is precious( which in my family is a big compliment.)I also think it's a brave design and goes deep down to the heart of what it feels like to really put yourself out there...on a stage or in front of a group of people....Plus, it's so darn cute!

Before reading any of the postings my initial reaction was "wow that's little death's nightmare, when he realizes that his life will never be normal because he doesn't get to go to playgrounds to play, he goes to take lives." Maybe this is or isn't what Ramy intended to depict, but every design is always going to be up to the interpretation of the masses. I noticed the skull once I looked at the details, but was surprised that only 2-3 people mentioned that at all. I believe that it helps tie it to the topic. Yes sure if you showed someone the shirt and asked whats the topic? they wouldn't come close. But would they on the other shirts? I haven't read all the threads on them, but I get the feeling they aren't as extensive, as many are implying this is Ramy's MO. Maybe that's true, maybe he is tangential a lot of the time, I don't know.
But it all links with what paigeg said. This is ALL about woot selling product. And they aren't going to take down submissions that are getting tons of votes, because they are hoping that everyone that votes buys the shirt. Yea it would be great to get such a broad variety through the derbys and for other talented people to get a chance to sell their shirts as well. But its not in woot's best interest to sell something that the masses aren't saying they want. Frankly, I think all the designers here should just be happy with the opportunity to submit our artwork and get it out there. Woot doesnt have to have derbys at all. This is a great place for constructive criticism and learning new things. And if the same people win over and over again, regardless of if you like their design aesthetic or you think their off topic, then obviously there are those out there that do like their work. If it bothers you so much to see something win that you feel is off topic and unfair, welcome to the real world where stuff isn't always fair. Don't participate if you cant stand it.

Q-P! And thanks - that's exactly why I really do read the community posts (not just to smirk at the snarks). The constructive advice at the early stages of a derby is interesting, and I even have some of my own upon occasion. I'm not much of an artist, but I enjoy it, and participating in the process vicariously. Oh, yeah - and wearing the shirts!

Now this is one of the most balderah posts I have ever encountered here at Woot. So now you need logic and facts to justify a shirt purchase, don't make me laugh. You really need to look over your post and think about what you just wrote. If some thinking doesn't help you realize how utterly ignorant it is, then I probably can't help you, nor anyone else for that matter. And insulting other people's designs just because you can't argue shows all the more ignorance.
