You can see a listing of all the colors used at the bottom of the page under Pantone Color(s).

This shirt doesn't use any of the same colors as "Behold a Pale Horse". Will it still print badly? No idea.

I used a coupon! Adventure time in printing!!!!

In for one. It feeds my inner goth girl, who I try to keep suppressed most of the time, without being totally ghoulish. Hope it prints alright.

Also, this was not submitted as a collab with Seki yet now they link a Seki shirt under Ramy's name.



Staff post comments on the derby all the time in many artists' entries. Here are some examples:

Like this one from the last derby... which was replying to another staffer who also commented positively.

There's also this one from the Devo derby.

One from the dance derby.

One from the sun derby.

Here's one from the Cities derby.

They linked the Ramyb/Seki shirt "Imposter" because it's a collab with both of them and they always link it.

One of the staff member commented in Ramyb's thread that most staff have no power in the derby and post/vote/comment as if they are normal wooters and not to read too much into them appearing out of the mist now and then.

Please carry on. =D

Was thinking about getting two, but now I'm contemplating buying three. Hmmmm. OK, so two now and I'll sleep on getting a third.

Just so you know, I think you can only submit one order per account per day on today's woot. If you want three, it will either have to be all at once or that third one will need to wait until Saturday at $15.

Hola! I've been lurking for the last year. How time flies. For my 75th shirt.woot shirt, I figured I had better hold out and make it count, and it only took 358 shirts/days to finally find one I wanted, worthy of being my 75th shirt. I can hear my other woot shirts in the closet now, cheering me on, happy to finally have a new face, err, shirt.

So to the creator of this shirt: Congratulations, you have succeeded where 358 others have buttafuocoed. You should be proud ;) now cash in and enjoy the bling! Maybe you could head on over to grandma's house and share the wealth, if you make it there.

Oh and your big bad wolf, is pretty big and bad, but I hear he only goes after those who try to steal the red thunder that is his eye color. Jealousy much? Probably why the other fores animals steer clear from red, why he has to have a monopoly on that red color is beyond me, but I'm not going to argue with an upright walking wolf, jeesh.

If I don't see you no more in this world, I betcha on the next one you'll know me! Don't be late!

I hear that many wolves have a recurring nightmare in which they find out that the girl underneath the tasty looking red hood is actually an anime warrior

I see staff posting that they like designs all the time in shirt threads. Interesting how it only is an issue when ramy gets a comment.

After reading that, I have to agree, I fully expect something like a scene from a Japanese anime, some sort of lighting strike or quick samurai strike. She's got something in that basket other than muffins, must've planned it. It is wolf hunting season, yes? What better way to draw him out than with a little red coat and Dorothy's slippers. Oh wait probably not ruby slippers, but I've never seen such brightness in the pitch black of a forest like those shoes, has to be some kind of anime magical trick, them shoes.

Thanks to the title all I can hear is Bruce Jormungandrinson of Iron Maiden screaming "FEAR OF THE DARK!" I guess heavy metal really did ruin my mind.

Really?!? The filter changed the last name of Iron Maiden's lead singer. *sigh*

If you have a phobia or know anything about phobias, you would know that the typical reaction when the phobia is triggered is panic and the need to escape the situation. This shirt has absolutely nothing to do with that emotion. There is no phobia whatsoever illustrated here.

I think she's actually pondering her terrible choice of footwear. Ronald McDonald's shoes aren't really engineered for fleeing. Unless grimace has turned rogue...wait...the background is a purple blob..! ahhhhhh

I'm glad to see I wasn't the only one who thought of Iron Maiden.

Hmmm... Eddie closing in on the wolf, now that would have been an awsome shirt.

This is probably the best RAMYB shirt I have seen. Not your typical cannbilistic bunny/monkey/llama in disguise/costume cutsey shirt we usually see from him. I like the darkness of it... and the wolf looks rad.

Yeah, thought about that while I was ordering. I don't need three anyhow. I think that two will be more than enough. I'll wear one until it wears out and then I'll have another to wear until it fades beyond recognition. That should last several years.

Ah, good song by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs (The Bobs did a great cover, too).

I really like this design. That's one humongous wolf, and the woods are nicely dark and foggy. She looks like she's destined to become a wolf snack whether she knows it or not.

great shirt

i just hope it prints well. the dark colors make me nervous that it won't show up right.

i assume woot will reimburse if 3/4 of the design ends up being invisible?

Does this remind anyone else of that freaky movie, The Neverending Story? I think Gmork made me wet the bed when I was a child.

It's really unfortunate that 1st place doesn't equal winner in this case.

Vanilla Ice actually had his own style. I was thinking Milli Vanilli would be the better analogy.

yeah, they had that hit song "Do you really want to hurt me"



P.S. this print was All my fault. for what I said in the thread, that was deleted. they had just enough time to pull the votes they needed out of the fan base (imaginary or real) they have.

Congrats on the win, Ramy! This earned its place on the colors and forest textures alone.


Love the write-up, Woot. We can laugh about it now? I guess that's healthy. :-)

I own "Behold a Pale Horse" and it's a fine-looking shirt...is there supposed to be something wrong with it? If so, I'm at a loss as to what it is.

at least there are no bunnies.

But, really, this is not ramy's worst shirt. To me, this is more reminiscent of Buffy/ River/ Wonder Woman/ Dorothy from Kansas (not the music group, the state).

phobic? undetermined.

kick@$$ female? seemingly.

sellout? likely.

I have had similar concerns on a few shirts in the past, only to be pleasantly surprised when it arrives. They have always done a great job, and I can only assume this will be no exception. I have a feeling that the grey background while also dark, will bring out the wolf and black parts that should be seen.



Jestik! I missed ya, man! I cannot believe a year passed, I see our PM's there in my box from a time, long, long ago.

I've been working and trying to better my position at the company, putting in the time and effort for some highly valued and much needed brownie points. Time flies! Good to be back though, I fully intend on keeping myself on the shirt.woot up and up. I found so many shirts recently I totally forgot about, and that was really fun, brings back memories from a few years ago, especially times I was wearing them. Who would have guessed a ten dollar shirt could be so sentimentally valuable. w00t!

If I don't see you no more in this world, I betcha on the next one you'll know me! Don't be late!

My take on it is that the wolves only exist in her imagination. The one in the foreground looks more like a trick of light and shadows than an actual wolf. If she's so afraid of wolves that she's seeing them when they aren't really there, wouldn't that be considered a phobia?

Between the basket of food and the red clogs, Little Red Riding Hood looks related to Mario Batali. This week's Iron Chef Ingredient is Wolf!

What a terrible disappointment that this even got printed let alone won. I hope those buying this shirt like wearing a few red splotches around an obscure outline of a person.

No. Yes.

I'm really glad to see this shirt win, i was worried everyone online was too upset that it drifted ever so slightly from the derby, but personally i think it's spot on and a wonderful design. Keep up the good work Rammy.

I adore Ramyb's work and receive many compliments for my "The Devil is in the Details" shirt.

I like this shirt just as much, perhaps more. In for 2, one for myself and one for my good friend who adores my other Ramyb shirt!
