Re: Tabula rasa RESUB!



Voted for original and resub b/c it's such a wonderful design. However, I think the original placement would be better for me, and other ladies... I get the feeling her face would end up in my armpit if she were on the side. Hey, let's just print both! ^_^

good luck-- I hope you get printed.

I didn't see anyone crying about the 200 elephants, of which many looked nearly identical last week, or the bazillion "falling star" and "p*rn star" submissions the week previous... Where was the "its not creative enough for my epeen" then? People just being haters. If you can do better then do better. If you can get more votes, then get more votes. Its a shirt!!!!

That's true, it is kind of hard to tell what makes the hammer strike. It's a very well drawn shirt though, and I voted for it, I just wouldn't buy one.

It's more than a "just don't click" issue though. If shirt.woot were more like threadless and there were tons of designs to choose from every day, I'd have no issue with ramy's shirts continually printing, but I do take issue when a shirt like this continually beats out shirts that I would actually want to wear.

The point of these threads is so that people can lobby for or against shirts they want and don't want. It can sway people's minds in voting, and that's what we're here to do. For that reason, I also think that attacking an artist himself is wrong. I won't deny that if I could draw a design like this every week and people would love it I would continue to do that, but this isn't quite my style. I like to draw things I enjoy not just things that I think will win. So what if my average votes is low? For me, art is about an expression and fun, and if I'm not enjoying what I'm making, I'll just stop working on it.

Is there a reason why most Mexican spots only have carnitas and Menudo on the weekends? Is that just a traditional thing, or what? Because, 9 out of 10 times I really want carnitas like on a wednesday or something and end up have to spend several hours making them myself.

My neighbor wants to try out this new Mexican restaurant that just opened near us. Being in St Louis, I don't know what to expect. It'll probably either be mediocre or dog food. But I'm up for the adventure, then again I was the time I got a tamal that tasted like play-doh, in Sprinfield IL.

Wow. That is the exact turtle used.
If you overlay it onto the shirt, it's an exact match which means this design is a trace of a copyrighted photo. And for woot, that's a big no-no.

I've just taken notice that it just seems like its more of a beat up on Ramyb thing every time he submits. Like I said, he does turtles, its not that hard to understand. People like turtles, and he's smart enough to keep rehashing the same old theme (and penguins, bunnies, etc). And it IS as simple as "just don't click". Obviously someone is clicking. So what if it not you (not YOU in particular). Click what you like and what happens happens. Life goes on. They are shirts.

@Frik
I am not Ramyb, nor do i know him/her. I just think its silly that people are getting this upset over a turtle ON A SHIRT.

Yeah, I was wondering that. Hopefully, since there's no, er, detail, they'll be o.k. with it. After all, she is a mermaid, so I'm not trying to make something obscene :D

I'm so glad you like the color! I have a hard time with color, so I've really been trying to improve. Thanks so much!

fuzznarf, I think you need to read a bit more in the thread.

If the clicking is being done by the artist to drive votes, drive the shirt into the fog, drive it to print which will result in money for the artist, that is a problem.

If the art itself isn't original, and by that I mean stolen not just "bad" or "not my style", then some other artist somewhere is being harmed. Some other artist's work is being used to generate an actual monetary gain.

This is all a bit deeper if this artist is using alternate accounts to "create" votes for his own entry, and if this artist takes designs from other artists. It isn't about the 50 or 100 or 200 votes that are actually individuals who like cute turtles. There can be fans of this artist's work, but it isn't fair at all to the other entries and entrants if this artist's work comes out pre-packaged with a large number of votes from the artist's own accounts, nor is it fair if this artist took someone else's work and made it his/her own.

BTW, the Calvin & Hobbes issue really drives this home for me. I'm a huge C&H fan, and just read the Retrospective book last night. Bill Watterson worked very hard to protect his art, and he deserves to have his creation stand as he wanted it to.

Re: Tattered Tetrahedral Terrarium



I like the tetrahedral terrarium, and the viney bits!

I think it could be improved by using flowers that are more appropriate for the woody vine. If not 100% biologically realistic, I would suggest using something that's at least not as readily recognizable as daisies.

While I'd take umbrage with the "terrible" part, I can't help but agree with the rest.

This makes me think of my heavy-metal-listening, redneck uncle in the 80s.

I think is because tacos de carnitas are more like breakfast-lunch dish, so is more usual to sell during the weekends when the people don't work, but I just guessing. A lot of places in mexico open all week too.

Good luck with the new restaurant! I hope is good!
