Re: Foxfire




Tobias is correct in that if this submission is off theme, then so too would be the Firefly submission. It shows no flame and only has the word 'fire' in the title. The entry depicting the lighter and matches bowing also show no fire. This entry at least shows some amount of flame, though it is minimized in comparison to the characters.

If we're going to force artists to think in terms of technicality, perhaps they should create a derby for stereo instructions.

Re: Concerts will never be the same



I'm going to have to disagree with the cleverness. This joke has been made by pretty much every person that's ever seen the app or by anyone who's ever just held up a cell phone at a concert. I'm not saying it's lifted, but the idea itself is nothing special.

What really pulls the shirt down in my opinion is the faux sloppy shininess that can only be a mildly subtle attempt to trick ramy voters into clicking. Really not your best work by any stretch.

Must have phoned this one in......

I don't disagree that that should be rejected. This is, again, the FIRE derby. The main difference is that Firefly is a wearable, artistic design. that doesn't make it on theme. As for the lighter/match entries, you could certainly argue they should be rejected too, and if woot did so, there should be no whining. The difference there is that matches and lighters are directly and irrevocably linked to fire. Fireflies are not, and foxes are DEFINITELY NOT. That there is no fire around a match is less of an issue than no fire around a fox. this should be simple logic. But again, woot would be totally in the right to reject those entries, too.

This is a horrible argument. That other work would need to be rejected does not make this design on theme, or make it something that shouldn't be rejected. OBVIOUSLY a derby should reject ALL off theme work. It is simply more important to get rid of that which is off theme and also has no redeeming qualities. This is so much less on topic than the other designs which also would run the risk of rejection, and may indeed deserve to be rejected, that there is no excuse why this piece shouldn't be gone IMMEDIATELY and FIRST. If you're trying to cast a British actor in a film, and there's an Irish guy and an Italian in the wings waiting to audition, neither of them are what you're looking for, but the Italian probably shouldn't have been let in to begin with.

That doesn't limit the designers, either. Fire has lots of applications. You don't see it here because this is woot, but this is a wide-open theme. Artistry could run rampant, were this a site that went for that sort of thing. It is not limiting at all to require real, fiery fire to be present in a fire derby. It's not about forcing people into technicalities. It's about forcing people to follow the rules of the derby, and the theme is the biggest rule of all. If you are the sort of person who sees a theme like this as limiting anyone who stays on theme, you are not cut out for art. Art is about thinking outside the box. Fable has not done so, except insofar as the box said "make a design about fire," and she made a design about glowing.

For those who missed this in art:

If it doesn't look like what you say it is, it isn't it to anyone judging it. If you want to make an abstract cubist nonsense painting and call it "mother in the kitchen," fine. If the theme is "kitchens," you can't enter it.

This does not look like fire. It looks like orbs and energy. It looks like one fox about to throw a hadoken, and another with m. bison fists. Besides the incredibly lazy concept (oooooh a kitsune...) it is incredibly lazy representation of fire. Not Everything Bright Is Fire. Fire may be colors other than orangey, but it also must.look.like.fire. This is so blatantly afterthought it's not funny. You wanted to make some glowy kitsune and made any connection to the theme (read: none) the absolute last element.

Hey, now, my thumbs are REAL happy about the new phone apps. I have two or three different ones on my Droid, and not one blister.
Reminds me - Disturbed is next week. Gotta see if they have this 'lighter' app for the Droid. Rock on!

Pun alert ^
I have to disagree in part. Sure, not the best I've ever seen from tjost. But his really artful sub from last week failed, and the simplified version fogged but didn't win.
And tjost has used varied styles, one of which is a semi-chibi that is nevertheless better rendered and has better humor that most of ramyb's.
I dunno, maybe he pandered a tetch. But it still makes a cute shirt.

Re: invention of fire



Huh. I'm surprised this isn't getting more love - or the other version. Well, it's early. I know dragons are 'done' to most folks, but this is really nice. It deserves more votes.
Wait - I just realized your comp and thumb don't match. That's sure rejection. You should re-sub, quick.
