Re: Awkward Turtle



I like how even with 6-7 sites proving that this is copy right infringement even a site with a shirt with the same name and design, that this is still up. Ramy has to be cheating some how at this point. have a shirt that is a clear cut copy of someone elses design, even down to the name, and to still have this design in the fog? just saddens me

Re: TP has a Tough Job



Wow the rejected stamp is on a rampage today.

Is not toilet humor a general rule?

Or is somebody just having fun on the Woot side of things?

This was a derby shirt.

Very nice then. Looks a bit wide on the shirt but I like the general idea.

Well, it happened. Not unexpected. I figure they're just covering their bases. Even though it got rejected, I'm glad people liked it. Thanks.

I've drawn my ass off for these contests for some time now, and while I totally agree it can really break it off to see some of the stuff that wins win, in the example of Ramy's work, I personally find it tough to get mad at Ramy the guy all things considered.

If he does what he does, and it keeps winning, it just doesn't make sense for him to stop. While it's certainly a sad thing to come to terms with, there are those who enter these contests with the sole intention of cashing in, and unfortunately there aren't any rules against using that as you main motivation in entering these things. The voters vote on what they want, and thats how it works. We all knew that more or less going in. If someone comes across a winning formula, it might be hard to put that aside in favor of a certain perception of artistic integrity.

If vote duping and other shady things are happening, which I don't believe there has ever been any concrete evidence to support, it's up to this website to stop it obviously.
And if that is whats been happening, and it's been left unfixed all this time, well damn.

Re: Toast! (v2 - super edit)



The thing I miss most from the original was the shock and awe of the on looking common bread... because obviously this super toast is beyond the norm. I also miss the sense of depth given by the city backdrop. The new grey is nice but i liked the blue with the white city... so i'm pretty torn between the two. Nice art.

saved!

I like turtlez and they start with the letter T. This one is turned-over for the double t! I hope everyone likes it and I spent a long time on it. There's 3 colors used on green.

LOLOL! I'm totally not posting to make people look me up on the archive, I swear!

Actually looking at my own archive there are tons of missing removed entries by me from before shirt.what started archiving artists. Most of the time I put a "Ver. 2" on the resubs so you can see where the missing entries should be.

This is what I realized after a long time of resentment. Whether or not people agree that the artist is in the 'right', *they don't care*. This is the most important part! THEY DON'T CARE. You can rant until your fingers cramp and they will continue doing what makes them money. Some of them are even having fun doing it! Have you ever drawn a cutesy, meaningless picture? It's FUN. It can be relaxing. These people are having fun and making money. I'm sure they see no reason to stop.

I am in no way condoning the creation of meaningless, cute pictures in a contest where a lot of artists are putting forth their best. In fact, it still infuriates me when I see it in the fog when I know the artist could've done better. Especially when something I *know* was worked on falls out of the fog to make room for it.
I AM saying that if you have something legitimate to say (a critique or a notice that it's off topic) then say it.
Otherwise, please understand that you are probably wasting time that could've been better spent elsewhere on other entries encouraging artists who work hard. Give those who need it and are willing to listen help/advice. You might make a bigger dent.

That shirt is one bird and it looks a lot different so at least it's not identical. I created the bird from scratch so all I can hope from here is that people like my version of the design. I know it's not as original as some others but that's only because everyone thinks the same thing when they hear the name... oh well. Thanks for commenting though
