sharkswithlasers349 wrote:Yes! This fogged while I was in school! I also noticed the "1" covering up the "3," and while it does seem a bit off, your reasoning for wanting all of the numbers to be easily recognizable makes a lot of sense. If someone does get reeeally picky about it, just tell them that there's a slit in the "3" in which the "1" goes. Fingers crossed for a print.

Let me look at the design again and see if I can't make it look like what you expect without changing the overall look. If I get something working, I'll mail it to Woot and let them decide what to print.

What I have found out is that they really are very different than "traditional marshmallows" which contain gelatin. Once one of my friends was doing a smores event on campus and since it was his event and he wanted to eat them too he used kosher marshmallows- and everyone was like Oragutan Mating Guide... what's wrong with the marshmallows and why are they lighting on fire and not actually melting the chocolate...

Apparently not everything has a substitute.



The important thing is that marshmallow creme makes better rice krispy treats than marshmallows do. I can skip the smores...

Congrats on making it back into the fog SpiritGreen. I love this design. He needs a good updraft of votes to fly high enough :D

Good luck!

Aside from who created the shirt or if it is on topic (because that is shirt.woot!'s problem), I have to ask myself this question: "Do I like it?".

And the answer here is yes.



And really, if you want to BUY a shirt based on "I like it" that's fine, personal taste and all.

But if you're voting for it based on "I like it" even though you admit it might not be on theme (or that you don't care that it's on theme) then why do we bother having derbies? Why not just have cuteanimalOctober and have every weekend the cutest animals that can get some votes print?

That's the beauty of the scientific method, you can use it to learn more about almost anything.



You learn about cute animals via scientific method, here, have a kitty!

If the theme was "science" and not "scientific method", I might agree with you.



As you admit, it's the result of scientific method, not the process of. I think that makes it off topic, but I really do like the design. Best of luck.

Well, I like the design but its too bad its on black. Too much fits the shirt stereotype for me. Personally, I think these sorts of design things need to go on lighter tones.

Still not DNA. DNA has A-T and C-G. You have 6 color units pairing up, making 3 base pairs.

Adder ftw.

Like others have said, I liked where you were going with the carbon morphing into life, but I also agree that the circles don't really do much and the theme connection is a stretch.

Re: Stapler Subtraction Effect



I liked this one, I have a feeling it was rejected because it's not at all parody of Office Space.

I think your drawing is quite good! There's really no call for someone to call artwork (of any kind) horrible without more explanation. That is not constructive and is no way to improve someone's quality of work. I really don't think there's anything wrong with this drawing (artistically, they might not be able to print it, but they never reject because of lack of artistic talent, so don't think that was it.) It may not be quite as polished as some of the ones in the fog, but it's really good for just your second derby entry! Keep at it!

In addition to not really being a parody, they might also say celebrity likeness (I know Stephen Root isn't a huge celebrity...but he is a celeb...)

You shouldn't worry about your artistic abilities...they won't get you rejected (only the content). And you're not the worst artist to enter the derby (have you checked out some of my entries? :P )

Anyway, good luck in future derbies

Re: Stapler Subtraction Effect



Tamar,
I want to agree with mindputtee here that I think your drawing is quite good too, (as I said before) the drawing of the man has a really nice flow, like you are relaxed and comfortable with your artwork.
I've got to go to bed now, sorry to comment twice here but I wanted you to know your idea was funny and I liked it!!! I will be looking for more of your artwork . Good night.

Re: Order of Operations


Shouldn't there be a 'minus fire' in the equation somewhere like the minus stick? You probably would not be smiling on the other side of the equal sign if the s'more was on fire!

Aside from that technicality, I love the idea. Nice work!

i don't see anything wrong with the artwork, its very easy to identify what your talkin about which is the goal of any shirt

i guess the only thing i could say is the building looks kinda wierd, hard to tell its a office but that would generally be hard to draw anyways so idk where I would even start lol

Vote for me! <3 thanks

Re: Double Helix



My only complaint about this entry is that it is a resub and to my eyes, it is not significantly different. Ramy says he redid it, but I see no significant changes from his original entry from the Events of 2009 Derby.


So, once again, Woot is bending the rules for Ramy unless this is rejected at the last minute.

Re: Rube Gravity Machine



Excerpts from Lab Notebook #4:

1685, England: Newton is hit by an falling apple from a tree, sparking revelations on gravity. This work is later published in the Principia.

2010, ??: Efforts to replicate Newton's discovery have been fruitless. Despite the use of highly complex devices, the more we improve on our design with more parts, the harder it is to get this apple to fall off the tree. Science is hard, but we'll figure it out, we just need more steps somewhere. Someone get a hammer!

Whew, took long enough to get it submitted, couldn't get any free time to do it! Too late to get much exposure, I'm sure, but hopefully some of you enjoy it.

Re: 5 Second Rule


Don't worry Moose, the way you presented this shows you're not mean. I think seeduvpains design is safe.

(I polled my almost 7 year old daughter , showed her the 2 pictures and she is with seeduvpain all the way and she also loved the pretzel and the amazingly otterific germs.) (What I'm saying, is she said "They're different.)

Re: There’s no Chemistry



I love this more each day and the coloring is truly amazing, I noticed the reflection on the table and the subtle shading on the glass bottles and my favorite technique that is so yours, where you use dots that fall into the negative space (like on the gleam of the bottle) so effective.

Such talent, so unique, I don't miss version one (chemistry) anymore, this "story" is even more interesting! (The characters have depth.)
