The two pieces are not the same at all.
Very nice, and good luck.

I was taken aback at first that there were two shirts that both dealt with autumn and music, but upon closer inspection there are a lot of differences (the leaves from the tree are acting as notes on the line of music, the background, and the general style and color).

happy voting!

I love it, too. It combines two classic images, and anyone who doesn't think the original "Rosie the Riveter" is art, is a snob. :p

enginivity wrote:Actually, many works of art often become known by alternate titles, or subtitles that are not originally part of the title. (by popular association)

If there is a derby that is subject to flexible parameters, this would be the one.

This piece is also based on a well known work of art called "Rosie the Robot," whose title and concept are parodied effectively here.

Love the shirt! =)

The concept delighted me at the time, and your parody design greatly amuses me now! GMV, simply because I get to feel like I'm 'in' on some kind of wonderful, exclusive joke.



Thanks! Those movies are awesome. El Santo was always saving the world from monsters, zombies, aliens or any other supernatural threat. A friend of mine, who I'd watch wrestling with all the time had some Mil Mascaras movies on tape and we'd watch those sometimes.I love Lucha Libre, there is an element of craziness that's missing from american pro wrestling.

Agreed. I'd like to see it get rejected as off-topic, but Woot is ... inconsistent in it's enforcement of topic.

This shirt is brilliant. I loved it before I knew what the original art piece was and even more after I wikipedia'd it.

Re: Winged Victory



my only real critique (i think the legs are fine. i never saw it as only having one by the way...) is that the angel is rocking what appear to be samurai swords.

a more medieval shaped sword(s) with more hand guard and maybe more of a pointed or even flanged and less chisel tip blade would fit the style better i think.

but this is a minor thing...

excellent work!

Re: We Can Do It! (Rosie the Riveter)



The original Rosie the Riveter is art. Whether you consider it good art, bad art or mediocre art is your opinion. Commercial art is still art.

As to the title, I'd be open to either, but if the title is "We Can Do It", then this missed the mark because you didn't reimagine or interpret "We Can Do It" at all. You just replaced the Rosie. If the title is "Rosie the Riveter", then again, you didn't reimagine the title, just replaced the Rosie. If your Rosie the Robot were, perhaps, repairing herself -- and thus, actually riveting -- then you would be on-topic.
Of course, this derby is disappointingly loaded with images that are little more than reproductions. I'm not overly hopeful that the rejectionator will salvage this derby.

Thanks! I'm trying to move away from monsters more since I realized I was sort of over-using them. I haven't done a solely monster-themed entry since the Devo derby I don't think...and for Kawaii I got into the spirit by doing this! If you miss the monsters though you can always find them at MySoti here!

Since the actual title is "Metamorphosis of Narcissus", I wish you had used a daffodil for your flower (Narcissus is the genus name of the daffodil).

I think this is a great design. I love the leg back as it is. It adds action to the illustration. I think it would lose a lot if the other leg was extended and in full view.

You don't see why some of us have a problem with this shirt coming so closely on the heels of another daily (that sold out) that is strikingly in the same vein? I am not saying that you stole the idea at all. I don't know if you did. But at the very least, you must admit that there are striking similarities and you unfortunately have a poorly timed submission.

Re: Mucha's Zodiac RESUB



I like this, but it needs some added awesomeness to take it from "okay" to "wow!".

Advice:

1. The linework is very good, and the focus of your piece. Get rid of the solid color background, and instead use a second color as a highlight to give the piece depth. Vary the thickness of your original lines a bit more.

2. It needs something underneath the twins' elbows to fill the work out. Right now it's too straight.

3. Perhaps a third color used *subtly* to add interest but not distract from your focal points.

4. Make your mock on a "real" shirt, it looks so much better. Resources: http://shirt.woot.com/forums/viewpost.aspx?postid=1517039

Otherwise what you have here is a great starting point. Your image also looks compressed? Make sure you are subbing at 580x580.

Cheers,

-art

This.

A substantial number of submissions' designers seem to have completely misunderstood the derby's theme. It seems simple enough. Reinterpret the title of a famous piece of art; not reinterpret the piece of art itself.

Looking great man. I'd definitely love to get this shirt. It reminds me of this recent low budget film classic:
