This is great! Takes me back to my high school D&D days. First dungeon I ever created had a beholder in the first room. Probably the shortest D&D game ever.

Adorable. Not so sure about the Olive Green background, though. I think I'd prefer it in a different color. But brilliant design and a great idea

The error was intentional. I am an English teacher. A lot is correct English, but the joke is to use bad grammar.

However: Big Square Block of Ink. I can't see it being comfortable to wear.

It might be better on baby blue, using the shirt color instead of ink for the sky. And maybe even lose the black border and vignette the edges instead. (I'm not an artist, though, so take this paragraph with a grain of salt.)



Excellent suggestion. This is my first derby, so I'm definitely open to suggestions.

Totally agreed. I voted for this extremely hard, and am not even bothering to look at any other entries this time around.

You do realize that definition can also be applied to many historical classical composers, artists, writers, poets, etc. don't you? Everything has been done before. I'm not saying this design is all that original, just pointing out the flaw in your plagarism argument. Just sayin, k thx

I'm new to woot and usually like to lurk more than chime in, but I thought I should add my 2 cents as I plan to buy all my new shirts from here now that I found this place! I think the design is super duper cute and am hoping it doesn't get rejected b/c I would really want to buy it. Sure the idea has been done before but honestly none of the links I saw had anything that looked this polished and.....just cute (short of the reckoned one which I can't buy now). I love Monty Python and have been wanting a killer bunny shirt for a while now but the ones Ive seen in the past all look "off". So what if the idea itself has been seen before, I think it's a well done implementation of a classic and seriously if I had a ton of time I can probably find an "original" idea that most of the other derby entries "plagiarized" from. I don't think people should be punished for improving something good which is what I see this as, it's how we get better cars food everything...people take an old idea and enhance and improve it, else we'd all be driving what?

I'd say that fits the bill perfectly for either "You've got to try this guys" or Monty Python depending on whether or not you think the rabbit ate the flesh off the bones behind it no matter how much the classless denizens of woot want to pretend Intellectual Property doesn't exist.

The idea of an cute yet deadly bunny killing people already exists in Monty Python. There is absolutely nothing added to that idea here. No parody, no originality, nothing. It is the exact same idea. That alone is rejectable.

As an added bonus there are already shirts exactly like this one which is also rejectable. We all know that woot likes to ignore the rules for ramy but pretending this is above board is just naive.



this is not plagirism. taking someones elses artwork and selling it as your own, now that is plagirism. this is, at its worse, stealing an idea, and probably is really just a similar idea that they all shared. you can hate them for their unoriginality but this artist is not a plagirist and its just out right disrespectful to say so just because you hate his design. so why dont we just leave them alone, its already been brought up in this thread, there is no need to keep bringing it up. just drop it and let woot do what they will.

I seriously love the way you put this design together, and especially how you did the error message. I hope this makes it to print one way or another, and if it's not here, please let me know when it's up somewhere else :D

Re: Frozen Peas are Cool Beans




GMV. Bravo, sir. I honestly didn't expect to be casting many votes this week, but congratulations on showing everyone how it's done. I love that you've been able to stay so true to your signature style, and create a design that's charming, wearable, and still meets the derby guidelines. Unfortunately, it looks like your work will remain under-appreciated yet again, but thank you, sir, nonetheless, for offering a shred of hope and class to this derby.

For some reason, and I could be wrong, but I think this is not the first time Ramyb has put up an entry that has been compared to Fable's "You Have To Try This Guys" win from Derby #82.

I lose tons of chess games simply out of lack of patience with how slow the other person is moving. Hope I did Ramy, Seki, and Fable's rabbit/turtles justice. Now back to work on the painstakingly tedious illustration of my first idea.

Just let be. It's not like anyone thought the kawaii champs would forego this derby, right?




It would have been nice if they actually created new characters at least. The same kitten, the same d**m bunny. Yes, this is their specialty but c'mon, at least try, not just phone it in.

Re: Lowest Common Denominator



Also, while I'm here. I don't really have an issue with you insulting various designers in their threads. I agree that it's an open forum and there are designers that do things that upset you. Go for it. Freedom on speech and all that.

The only problem I have is that that's pretty much all you do. If I go to entries by Walmazan, TJost, TGentry and other great designers, you are never anywhere to be found. But if I open an entry by Ramy or Seki or Spens, there you are, multiple times, always very angry.

The best way to get respect for your opinion of the designers you dislike is to show that you aren't just here to troll. More people will respect both you and your opinion (which sometimes is accurate) including the Woot staff if you said at least as many positive things about the artwork you do like, rather than simply spitting vitriol at those you don't.

Sometimes the artists deserve the negative speeches. That's fine. But if your posts are 95% negative, most people are going to start ignoring you. At the very least, equal it out. Let others know whose pieces you do like more often, and explain why. Especially in their threads, so they can enjoy the compliment as well. The more positive you are, the more the image of you as nothing but a woot troll will go away.

It's pretty clear your goal is not to simply piss people off. Your goal is to change woot with regard to it being an artist community. So while I'm not going to tell you to stop with the anger against artists you don't like, if you show more love to those that you do, you'd be much more likely to get a reaction you can appreciate.
