Re: Afraid to Fall
16th place! I wanted to say thank you to all those who voted and supported my design this week. This has been most votes I have received on one of my designs since subbing 2-3 months ago. Major love to all of you.
Re: He Wished He Was A Rhino
Great stuff infinity the perspective is really cool. +1 from me
Re: Misfortune Cookie
Thanks for the aw3s0me support on this design!
I enjoyed trying something different. :^)
Re: Get Over It
this shirt rules
Woo, this little guy shot up to the fog and stayed there! Big hopes on a print tonight. Or at least this weekend!

If so, giving them some features would have conveyed that better in my opinion.
I disagree. When I was taking out the garbage the other morning in pre-dawn light (i.e., dark), all I saw at first were 2 sets of glowing eyes. I could only tell by their height that they were moose, and not bears. Sometimes NOT seeing the body shape/features makes it more scary!

I have come back with both technical explantions and printed examples again and again yet you still say I don't know what I'm talking about or am tooting my own horn when all you can do is repeat, deflect and sound like an inexperienced initiate. If you want to put your money where your mouth is vote for it and shut up. If you don't want to still follow that last part. I'm done arguing with you on something that you have NO EXPERIENCE WITH.
The only problem I have with your response is your dismissal of his claims simply because he has no "experience in the field". While that is likely true, I'm more than willing to bet he has a plethora of knowledge of the quality of Woot's prints, particularly those with fine details. Will your process keep the drawing clean when it prints? I hope so, but that doesn't make Adder's concerns invalid.

Looks like you drew it on paint.
scionofjubal wrote:What you are referring to is the way light works. Not pigments. (granted we couldn't see pigments without light, but you know) White light is really all the colors together. Black is when there is no color. But paint doesn't work that way. You can mix every can of paint you can find at Home Depot together and it will never make white. (all of this knowledge thanks to Ms. Frizzle and the Magic School Bus)
On a different note, I personally love the excess of paint cans. It communicates desperation. Or maybe it's just very visually pleasing. Whatev. Great jarb. jorb. jeeeeooorrb.
Thanks for clearing this out. For me I see white as the non-color. Like in "blank canvas" - white canvas. "blank paper" - white paper. So white = blank
Really good flame effects, this one has my vote for sure!
Re: A Smile for You...
Nice design. Clowns are evil, you've made him look eviler. Well done.
I was going to buy this shirt, but after seeing how the artist reacts in these situations of criticism. I'm not willing to hand over money to him.

Grats on winning the Derby, already bought mine.

lol it's easy. Woot voters are also normal people that just wants the shirt. I'm buying one because I think the shirt looks cool. I don't know any of the artists here, so all of you are in one bucket to me. I only look at the shirt. Congrads for winning who ever did this shirt.

To each his own, we all have to follow our own conscience, and I always respect a person's rights to not patronize folks as a form of protest.
I might have been inclined to take your view, _if_ tjost had responded in this way to almost anyone else. However, Adder has a long history of antagonizing the guy, so I don't begrudge him a chance to hit back. In this instance, Adder had a very valid concern, but he chose to express it in the most insulting manner possible. Tjost responded to each specific point, so it's not like he went straight for the ad hominem--he just added a little vinegar to his (quite cogent) arguments.
Again, I don't begrduge you your personal boycott. I'm just explaining why I'm not joining you. Cheers.

My thoughts exactly. This is a cool shirt that I would want to wear. I don't care about the politics or know the artists. Particularly after all the cutesy, cartoony, chibi stuff that dominated last week's voting, I'm thrilled to see something like this win.

Yes superman is theoretically scared of kryptonite but batman is no longer scared of bats only as a child was he scared, I have no idea why the green lantern would be scared of the sun that makes no sense and finally spiderman the only semi-joke i see in the shirt...
Oh, really? I was thinking about getting this shirt if it comes out on woot as Christmas presents for my brother and his little boy, but my brother is a huge comic fan. So, I don't know if he'd like this shirt or not. Oh, by the way people saying nerd this and nerd that, my brother was a football player and married one of the popular cheerleaders and he loved comic books, still does. Cute shirt by the way, I thought it was very cute with the superheros and their little fears. My favorite one is Spiderman and his fear of bugspray, I could have died when I seen that.

6 colors on Navy. Hope you enjoy.
bwhahahaha, this was too funny. If this would have made it, I'd would of had to buy it for my dad.
Re: Fear of Drowning
ok, so i love the 'wonkey' eye... (even love the word 'wonkey'!) re the shark drowning... a wonkey shark must be moving thru H2O to get wonkey oxygen across its wonkey gills, so... fear of drowning for a shark out of wonkey H2O is so wonkey phobic! (is that a word...oh, wait, is wonkey a word? never wonkey mind, I'm wonkily done)
triple stab - art, science, and name!
wonkey woots to u!

A woman would never shield her peripheral vision and would be hard pressed not to at least occasionally look over her shoulder. Her head would be up and her expression would be clearly alert. Her shoulders would come forward a little and her arms would be closer/higher over her chest. Her legs would be close together and there should be movement to her figure since she would not slow even for a moment if she had a sense of impending danger.
Sorry, but you must have not worried about the monsters under your bed because I definitely believed if I didn't look, and held really still then they would leave me alone.
Now a NORMAL girl walking alone at night might be observant, look over her shoulder often, but a scared girl may try to pretend it's not even there. I definitely got that feeling from this shirt.
However, I also got the feeling that she's not looking, but she's confident to face the wolf (must be that stance.) I love this shirt just for that reason. Yes, it invokes the creepiness of being afraid of the dark and all alone, but it also evokes the confidence to walk alone in the dark anyway. This is the only shirt from this derby that I would wear.
As for the artist bashing, where's YOUR shirt. And if you submitted one, it's not likely on this list so just shut up. I don't even know who this guy is because I haven't been around Woot long enough to have my opinions warped like some of you.
Jestik wrote:"similar" shirts exist:
ShantyShawn's Red Riding Hood.
It may be similar, but your example also happens to be very ugly as a shirt, in my opinion. I say Ramyb's design is well done overall, even if it doesn't invoke a sense of fear for everyone. Nice design Ramyb, a well deserved victory!
I so want this shirt - ! wonkey eye and all.
Another bloody original shirt that loses to some other boring designs...
Here's to hoping for a random printing one day (preferably in the near future)! :]
Re: Along Came a Spider
You were robbed...seriously. Unbelievable. Perhaps Adder's relentless smear campaign pushed some people away from voting for this design?
Please let me know if this design prints somewhere else, as I'll be in for one.

I agree. Hope it prints somewhere.
Re: calculuphobia, fear of calculus
I would buy a few of these!
...as I turn back to my calculus homework *cries*
So this one isn't going to be made available for purchase? Sadness...
Well I got this shirt and I think it is awesome, I have gotten compliments from others on it also.
Ya now you were reaching, this would mean any red riding hood with the wolf would make it "similar". Her back is to the viewer, the shirt is white not black, the wolf is realistic not a stylized shadow, maybe I am missing it but I am not seeing red eyes (or any other eyes for that matter) looking at her.
He stuck to the story, red riding hood and the wolf in the woods, there is nothing else that is even remotely close to the same between the two.
Spiritgreen wrote:Hmm yeah, all good artists use reference photos and videos, the more the better, but tracing would be a no-no.
ah No, actually using ANY reference photo is apparently a bad thing. That's what I did here, http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=48094 And it's too close to the image. Can't take references and feel safe posting here. Might as well just create the whole thing out of your head. But don't make it look like a photo that exists...
