Thank you for making this comment! I agree this is a great design, but I would hesitate to buy it because of the way the design placement would look in person on a female. There are so many fantastic Woot shirts that present this difficulty... I know the winning derby shirts are all up to the artists and the voters, but I wonder if Woot's concerned female buyers should mention something to the staff about considering us when they select shirts during the rest of the week.

Apeman, I don't mean to discredit your work at all -- I'm definitely voting for your shirt because I think it's well done and a great idea. I just thought this might be a good opportunity to address this issue. Thanks!

+1 use of fantabulous

Yellow on olive would be very nice indeed, but it's too late for that sort of thing now.

(actually I think you guys did a great job on the artwork. Color me impressed. I agree with the people who say they wouldn't wear it on a shirt, but only because it's not my style. I don't see anything inherently unwearable about it)



Thanks Boots, btw your stuff really sucks, hard ;)

I appreciate the compliment and if you notice the large smiley face next to what I said, that should give you a clue as to how it was delivered. Not bashing your art, but it's never a good idea to resub the same thing like that over and over again (I think the only piece that gets away with that on a constant basis is the pucker).

Agreed. Best I can tell it's at least top 5, assuming no ridiculous jumps in votes in other entries.

Like it says in the fine print, "I'm HOPING this prints". If I had to limit myself to only giving BLAs to stuff out of the fog, some weeks would be pretty sparse...

Thanks so much, Robert!

Also thanks to everyone for the crazy amazing support for these little guys. I had no idea they would get this kind of response, seriously. I'm really happy people liked them overall. I sure appreciate it and they were a lot of fun to draw.

Also special thanks to Ressamac for the BLA recommendation :D, and to Lagbert, who has kindly helped me review my pulley system to make it be more effective. I will be revisiting that part of the design here soon to make it more physics worthy

I love the design simplicity, it's very wearable. But if you hadn't explained the 3rd law of Physics to me, I wouldn't get it. It's just too abstract.

Re: Cold Fusion



Thanks for the support (or not) for this design everyone. It was a nice chance to do something out of the ordinary for myself. And of course I'm always in awe of TJost's color work. He did a fantastic job on this, as always! -high five!-

About the above debate on proper critiquing of art: I've been a working professional for over 10 years now, and I'm also an art school graduate. Not once in that time has a teacher, mentor, boss, or even coworker used the word 'suck' to describe mine or another's work. There were a few times in school that people did say that to me, but those people were all under the age of 18 and had plenty of ulterior motives for their statements. Take what you will from that.

I've been dealt harsh criticism before, loads of it even. But it was always given with the genuine intention of making the final product better rather than berating me or proving one's own superiority. It was given with mutual respect. Any child can say something sucks. Most learned adults can formulate a better way to point out the faults in something (especially if you claim yourself an 'expert', as some people do here). If you truly want a final piece of artwork to be better, or to encourage someone to be better overall, you can choose from two ways to do it. One of those ways will not garner you any good will or respect, and one will. You're free to choose how you would rather go about things.

Thanks again everyone, see you another time.

This rejection doesn't make a lot of sense, but I am really confused to see so many people supporting what is a giant style bite of Jhonen Vasquez's work. I guess it's ok to rip people's style as long as it's not Japanese looking.

"this design is awesome, you're so talented!" is someone appreciating someone else's work. they have no problems with that design and would like the artist to know that they like their stuff. but someone saying, "you design sucks i hate it!" is not a CRITIQUE it is just someone expressing their dislike for the piece without offering any constructive criticism back. This is the point im trying to make. A CRITICISM will always be helpful, but being RUDE and DISRESPECTFUL will never be helpful.

EDIT: being thick skinned as nothing to do with anything, sure some people can take things other people cant but the point is to be respectful and to be helpful.



I don't think I'm confused. My opinion's just different than yours. I don't see why a person would have the right to "appreciate" someone's art, but wouldn't have the right to "not appreciate" it.

They'll never be helpful to you personally (and that's ok), but I actually find people's rude and disrespectful comments helpful (in the same way I find their "appreciation" helpful.

I'm not trying to tell you you're opinion's wrong or anything, Meg. I'm just offering up my own opinion, which happens to be different. It's too bad everyone has their own thoughts about things. In a perfect world everyone would just agree with me. ;)

Gotta second this, haha. TGengry's art is like a unicorn. Beautiful, majestic, and only a virgin can touch it lest the world be covered in darkness and evil Tim Curry devils.

Wait...axe that last part...cause it's creepy. Keep the majestic and beautiful part though.
