Re: Retro Physics



I hope this shirt wins. The retro look is awesome. It's nice to see retro without the, overdone, distressed look.

@sexylittlerobot That sounds good???

@neophool Thank you!

@lexiflexi Thanks! I used to think that pixel art was kind of "simple" but that was before I tried it. My respect for pixel artists has increased exponentially.

Re: Gravity



Awesome design, very classic. It does remind me of a Target ad because of the relations of the planets to each other, of course Target stole the whole retro-pop-art thing anyways...damn consumerism.

Your sleuthing is certainly appreciated, but I think were in the clear with this one. All the linked shirts certainly do reference the swallow/coconut portion of the movie, but I think mine takes it a little further.

Thanks to megsck and tgentry for supporting my design!

Tell me, why do people like you keep posting the same thing over and over when you know it will never print? If you really want this to print, why not just put it on Cafepress? What is your motivation?

At first, I really did not like this shirt. But it has come to put a smile on my face. Very cute.

You could say the same about the schrodingers cat that got bizanned this week.

He took it WAAAAY FARTHER than DianaSprinkles's.

Shouldn't there be a slice of buttered toast on the cat's back? I learned in college physics that under this condition, the cat will never land.

Re: obviously youre dense V2

Pretty sweet coloring on this, it really added a whole new dimension to this. The boat grain is great, as well as the foam in the water, the little dudes. Nice collab guys.

Dear Woot:

I don't necessarily disagree with your rejection and I understand your reasoning. However, how this shirt is still allowed is beyond me. UNLESS... the aforementioned shirt may/is going to win and your goal is to make money without regard for fairness, art, or logic.

Sincerely,

An extremely disappointed customer, less because of the rejection and more because of a realization I was naively hoping wouldn't come.

Thank you, Spirit and Memphis. I never thought I'd win, but I thought I would get a *few* more votes on this one. Maybe most people are as confused as that bird? Or maybe it's just too complicated for a t-shirt. Oh well... I regret nothing!

Anyway, I think next derby I'll try to err on the side of simplicity, just to see where that puts me.

I was just saying to my friend, like literally 5 minutes ago, that I really liked this and I don't understand why there's not more love.

I do think maybe showing a bit more on the thumbnail would have helped. This way people can see a part of the joke, and it entices them to click and see the rest . This design has great character and it's obvious you spent a lot of time on it. You should seriously resub it to Threadless or TeeFury later on. :D

Re: Wormholed!



I thought I had commented on this earlier but then remembered that it didn't go through because the site was wonky. This is a great concept and I like your execution too. The thing that I would suggest is that you remove the segments that are in the dotted line representing the wormhole, I think the idea works without them and I'm not sure why they're segments like that too when a worm hole would be stretching the whole body not breaking it up like that. This may be turning people off visually and even if its not the segments themselves it's probably the fact that you used "bloody" cut off ends. Wooters don't seem to like anything too morbid as I've found out through recent derbies with my cut in half fox ninja and giraffe on fire :S

Other then that good job though. It stinks when you have a good idea and no one seems to appreciate it I've had that happen to lots of designs. Persistence is key

Re: Retro Physics


I don't think the two atom shirts are similar at all, the other one is showing the different elements of the atoms with the positive protons having happy faces, the negative electrons having sad faces and the neutral neutrons having no real expression... where this one is just a retro happy atom.

Re: Phive Phamous Physibots



As a physicist (With no artistic ability) I got really excited when I saw that the derby was going to be physics. I was really hoping for a good shirt that only certain people will get. I think this shirt does that. I had a friend look at it and they got some but not all of the references. Honestly I wouldn't want this shirt any other way.

Only shirt in this derby that really calls out to me.

GMV and hope this gets to the top

All buttered toast lands butter side down on the floor. Since a cat always lands feet down, if you strap a piece of buttered toast, butter side up, to the back of a cat, you've created a perpetual motion machine. When you drop the catoast, it will spin in the air indefinitely.

And, there's precious little artistic expression involved in pasting a photograph into the Woot shirt template, especially when it's ... questionable ... as to topic.
Finally, if this were allowed, it would almost certainly cater to the masses.



That was a parody.

You can argue either way...but this shirt is far more similar to the one that exists in look and feel than any Schrodinger's Cat entry which got rejected this Derby is to the one that printed in June. It's a consistency thing.

Re: Cold Fusion



No matter how much I try to make myself aware of what you were -really- were going after, I simply cannot un-see how this strongly reminds me of the Zelda series and how you can trap fairies inside of jars for "use" later.

That, and Navi in particular. I would love to trap her in a jar, then point out to the gaming universe that such creatures would die of asphyxiation. Then I would cackle with glee.

The idea is that there is a sinusoidal wave changing into an ocean wave to represent the transition from serious school work on paper to fun at the beach... In other words... waves are everywhere!

Re: The Legend of Sisyphus



people on woot like voting for shirts that a 13 year old would wear. bright colors, animals, childish concepts (a hula hooping sun)

this is a shirt someone older then 13 can wear, look cool, and not look like a child. you could wear this shirt to a bar or out on the town. unlike most shirts on woot which restrict you to your basement/friends basement. GMV
