Re: Terran Final Defense System
Is any of this in metallic ink?

Wow thanks! It means a lot!
Re: Don't Look Back, I've Got You
Apparently all I needed to start loving your t-shirts were ROBOTS! I've always liked your stuff but the themes were not really for me. I'll have to get this one even it's on black.
Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
This is not SPAM.
Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
And when we quiet down, the house chants on without us.
Awww yay!!! I'm honored!!! ^_^
How come I'm not on the site tho?
Am I hitting the wrong link?! lol
*imma newb* lol
Re: The Big Gentleman
Thank you for the BLA, Robert. :^)
And thanks to Bass for the lovely nomination comments on the site, just read 'em.

Re: Saving the world, one small step at a time
I like this style more than the usual thing from you, ramy, but I'm with bluej: if that's supposed to be the same robot through the whole design (and it seems like it's supposed to be), then it's got some weird inconsistencies from panel to panel.
Re: Rascally Animals Make Yummy Breakfast (Re-Sub)
Voted for teh lulz.
Re: To The Clouds
I love the difference between this and your usual style. The simple almost comic book illustration in this design is really working for me. Good luck, hope it prints!
Re: W.W.Z. Mechanized Aerial Defense
I wanted to give a huge thank you to everyone who supported this design.
Thanks for all the votes and comments! =D

This image is also dedicated to Japan. I am greatly saddened by their hardship and loss from the quake. Since I was very young I have been influenced by their art and culture. I hope and wish for a strong recovery for their people and nation.
Thanks everyone, hope you like this one. Its a bit more non literal than I usually sub, but I wanted to put as much thought into it as I could . Ok, off this heinous wi-fi!! Enjoy!
Mirai = "future"
Nice touch, dedicating it to Japan. Hopefully you win so I can buy my wife one.
Again, really do appreciate all the support and votes this design has received--Thanks everyone!!!
This robot dove brings us hope that life thrives out there.
Great design! It really shot up there fast in votes too. I hope this gets an HM!
What an awesome derby this has been, so much win all around. Even stuff this isn't my style has really impressed me with its quality.
Hoping for:(will buy any of)
1)Alien Vs Robot
2)W.W.Z. Mechanized Military Infantry
3)To The Clouds
5)The Binary League
Don't Look Back: This is beautiful, something about it is just jetsons or peter pan. A truly amazing background scene.
Mirai: There is so much detail and trim in this its awesome. Your use of humanity was very well executed, also the tribute nature of the piece resonates. Mecha just isn't my jam so I could never see myself wearing this.(which is what this is all about)
Fate of the Planet: This is ridiculously well made piece. The quality and effort are so apparent. The non cutesy style is also appreciated. In addition to the mecha problem(for me) this also has a coldness or clinical nature about it that does not appeal.
Saving the world: Well it has no penguins in it so, thats a plus. It is a rather humorous shirt and a well laid presentation of multiple interpretations of saving the world. For me this sticking point comes from the seeming lack of trim or detail in the piece,which i understand is a representation of the artistic choice; but i fundamentally disagree with that given the longer lead in time for this specific derby, which I think you could have utilized more fully.
terrific design! the variety of blues is unique.
Re: Versus All
Re: Mother Nature
Lovely! I'd wear it!

I really like how the only color is green with shades of grey. I think an additional color would ruin the look.
Re: space is dangerous!
Very sad this did not get in.
Anyways, like others, did not expect to see your name on this shirt design. One question though...Is it intentional that the shape of the robot looks like it is changing slightly over the course of the frames(robot looks rather wider in the last frame). Then again, could just be me. Nevertheless, good work, sir.[/quote]
Well the angle of the robot is changing so maybe thats it...?

Thanks again everyone for your support this week!
I'm glad there is no metallic ink - I'm not overly fond of it, and really don't like gold at all. So yay! Crossing my fingers for you tomorrow night; your design is the best in the fog, IMO.
Glad I'm not the only one who thought of Jin Roh

did you design the stars and lettering with the intent of glow-in-the-dark aspirations? I wouldn't mind seeing this become a poster as well.
really hope this shirt gets printed. i need it
Re: The Binary League: Defending the Earth Since 1907
Many thanks to everyone for their votes and lovely comments- I know this one's not a serious contender, but it was nice to finish in the fog! A very pleasant return to the Derby for me, I must do it again some time... and as for Sir Titanius and the gang, well, they have work to do- SAVING THE WORLD!
Beautifully done, but it is a bit too tragic for my taste. I think I just found a new wardrobe rule. I will not wear shirts with dead little girls on them.
Re: Setting Happy
The fact that nobody gets this but now I see that it's dead on makes me vote for you.
This is an awesome shirt; Steampunk for the win!
I like the dove with the olive branch it has a great balance and look to it.
Is there any way I can get a large jpeg of this? It would make an amazing desktop background!
Best shirt of the derby by far. Hope it gets printed somewhere so I can buy it!

Thanks for the comments on this one. I have to say that I'm a little surprised at how poorly this design did.
Re: Crush... Kill... Restore...
I've been buying up shirts for a little bit on here (I'm a relative newbie) but that being said, I think your shirt in concept and execution (ESPECIALLY as far as a -shirt- is concerned) is much better than the current winner. I loved the character you created and the story that you tell us about (him/her/it). That is all. Fading back into the shadows now. >.>
I have your eating lightning shirt that I wear all the time and I really want this one!
i want this shirt sooo bad :D
Thanks you two for such encouraging words. I greatly appreciate it, and it's not a cool T-shirt, but here is the design (little bigger) if you wish to download a copy.

It was just poorly executed. Huge shame that this beat Alien vs Robot, To the Clouds and others. Here's hoping Sunday's shirt is a good one...
Really hoping this prints tomorrow. Good luck!
Re: remember the fallen
I really loved this one. If you submit somewhere else, I hope you'll let us know. It's great!
Re: Alien Vs Robot RESUB 2
I was voting for derby 192 when I came across a rejected design. I read some of the comments within the rejected design thread and looked through last derby's shirt prints. Found a comment which spoke of how much they wanted this shirt printed instead of one of the other robot shirts. I'm here now and honestly, I wish this was printed. I'd buy this shirt in a heartbeat. Woot needs to print this shirt.
