Re: turned-over turtle



Looking at this more closely, there seems to be a speck of green on the turtle's face. I'm not sure I could wear this. :P

One more gargleblaster you're an artsy-fartsy who hates all funny shirts! Woot already printed an artsy shirt for you this year and it didn't sell out, so u should shut ur artsy mouth!

I'm just looking for some help here when I ask...Can you tell me why? I get it if it's a personal taste thing, but if I'm doing something wrong, can you help me out? Please? I'm new here.

In all seriousness, I could actually see myself wearing this and getting a lot of laughs from my friends (none of whom are Wooters, so they wouldn't know the reference). It may be snarky, but hell, in its own terms it's funnier than a lot of the shirts woot prints.

Thank you for the kind words! I am completely lost on this site. I don't understand the threads. I don't know how to communicate. Please be patient with me.

Re: turned-over turtle



If you copped to your 2 year old art-savant child (niece? neighbour? some kid you grabbed at the supermarket?) having drawn this, I guarantee you'd get, like, 300 votes by the morning. GUARANTEE, I said.

Also? I genuinely like it. It radiates adorable RAGE. It's like Angry Day's differently-abled cousin.

Thanks! Yeah, making trilobites look happy...obviously required some anthropomorphizing.

If you can find a clever way to get rid of the text (I assume the Roman numerals), then you have at least 1 vote. This is awesome.

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.



Wow. I'm not exactly sure how to get in on this thread, so I'll just type here at the bottom. I am new to this site, new to the whole tshirt business. I've submitted 2 designs that have gone absolutely nowhere. You guys are ruthless, and I love it. It's good to be in a community where people stand up and shout. I know now to bring my a-game. Thanks!

The easiest way is to go to your design's page and click add a comment. Then, copy everything from the "open bracket symbol url" to the "slash url close bracket symbol." THEN paste that into your signature under your account settings. If you don't want the title to appear above the thumbnail image, you can delete that from the code. Good luck!

Re: Awkward Turtle



a few things...

I've posted a few designs on this site, and obviously I'm not really very good at this, however I do it for fun when I have free time, and usually get a vote from me, and a vote from my girlfriend, and maybe 5 or six sprinkled in from other people who it speaks to... no harm no foul right?...

now just a little change of pace (don't mean to offend anyone who actually likes Nickleback as crappy as I feel they are,) but I hate Nickleback, I feel they are no where near as talented as say Radiohead. Nickleback, from what I've heard of them, tends to take proven formulas and somewhat tailor them to their strenghts (as few strengths as they possess, ok I'll stop piling on lol) and continues to turn out hit songs across multiple platforms and stations. i.e.: top 40, Rock, Mix, alternative, etc.
However Radiohead never ceases to amaze me with their fresh new stuff that feels original and (as a fellow muscial artist myself) heartfealt.

Now with that being said, I am really not into mainstream art, persay, on my t-shirts. I love Drakxxx's drawings, and when coupled with Crescendebris' colors, I typically, but not always, seem to vote for them. Yet, I rarely find myself not voting for Ramyb. Nothing against Ramyb (I guess.) Just not my style, yet for some reason the colabs' stuff doesn't seem to print as much as Ramyb's does....

I guess this post ended up being a bunch of rambling, however I just wanna know, are these personal attacks at Ramyb as a person, or as an artist, b/c he is like Nickleback to me, but I can not fault the guy for using a tried and true formula to win, but if he is just a bad person I'd just like to know for my own edification...

P.S. I drank a little bit tonight... lol

Secondly, you inspired me to do a mockery as well But, I just deleted the link... its a little too mean in my opinion.

So without further ado...

This masterwork speaks to the everpresent ennui of bourgeois society. I see a dadaist rejection of the duality of our society's affect-based dialectic.

Though anyone with a shred of discernment could tell you that it's incredibly poorly composed and staggeringly uncreative.

At least it has a T in it, I guess. Unlike his other piece. Now where is that confounded piece?




Seriously? What is with all the negativity? This guy created a funny image with ties to contemporary memes. Why would length of time (or god forbid) correct perspective matter?

Haters gonna hate

Personally I like it...for whatever that's worth.

This gets my vote because I would actually buy and wear this shirt. Not all topsy-turvy turtles are drawn the same. Maybe Woot would fast track an Editor's Choice.

Vote, people! Help me out! I want a thylacine shirt! As Adder says, maybe a little more background would add a little more spice, but this is such a cool drawing of a thylacine and I'd love to wear it.

I think is interesting that Ramyb chooses to use this turtle so much. It kind of fits his persona. I mean, even though there is an army of people on here every week bashing his work for being consistently repetitive and uninspired(which it usually is), he usually gets the last laugh on all of them because he knows what gets votes and has no problem persistently riding that Jatravartid turtle(or mouse, or kitten etc.) to more paychecks than just about anyone else on this site.
