This could be so cool if you used slightly more vibrant colors. The concept is appealing to me though.

Re: Experimental Fail



I think it is hilarious. So what? Dead turtles. Yes it is a little depressing but there is no bad intention here. My sister once brought a baby chick to school in a plastic bag. There were no holes in said bag. You can see what happened here. In a perfect world there is no way this would happen but when I was younger I wanted a ninja turtle. Luckily I never got my hands on chemicals or turtles.
+1 for a great design.

Re: Experimental Fail



Everything else aside, the design is just too small and detailed for a t-shirt. Detailed as in labels and weapons, not as intricate.

Conceptually, however, I enjoy this sort of humor, and see no harm in chuckling at the misfortune of some cartoon turtles.

Derby #194: Science

Ok gang, we here at Woot were playing with potatoes and glitter while we brainstormed for this week's derby theme. Then, as we saw the glitter actually stick to the potato, effectively turning it into a lumpy disco ball, it hit us! "SCIENCE!", we shouted in unison! It was a no brainer, but you know what is a brainer? Rules, so here they are.

Make sure it's science related! We all know how everything that exists is connected to science, so we want to see you draw something like that.

Wow. I've been reading threads on woot for ages and finally had to post.

When I read the rules and saw the "no anthropomorphized" animals, I thought, "it'll be interesting to see what Ramy does - bet a bunch of people are glad to see this rule."

Then I read this post. Holy balls, you people bring your own dirt and water to these things.

Ramy likes doing cutesy designs. People buying woot shirts like buying cutesy designs. Seems like a good match. To all you people griping about the negative effect this has on "creativity" or "exposing new artists" or "cheapening the idea of what art is" blah blah blah - go cry someone else. If "art" is what you're trying to push, you're in the wrong place. It's a T-Shirt site for eff's sake.

If people wanted to buy the shirts you want woot to sell, they'd win the derby.

I'm not saying highly artistic shirts don't belong here, but I am saying that you're hating on the person who is supplying shirts people obviously want in a forum designed to pair artist and consumer. You don't like the buyers here - sell somewhere else. Don't tear down a designer who's found the right audience.

And the "who wants to buy the same shirt over and over" argument is crap too - people who like Ramy's shirts don't necessarily have to buy all of them. I'll buy a couple, I appreciate a few others, and I don't buy the rest. But clearly people do, or they wouldn't win derbies and they wouldn't last for weeks or months on the Reckoning.

Also, I'd like to point out that as nasty as the insults have gotten, Ramy's only posted comments defending his idea behind the design and hasn't gotten into pissing contests with the haters. Kudos on that, Ramy. You've shown a lot of restraint when people are tearing into simply because that's become their thing.

Jeez people. Stop hating and get back to drawing awesome shirts. It's a much more likely method for unseating Ramy in the fog.

Thanks! I went into it knowing people don't care much for cream but I had to go for it anyways!!! And thanks to everybody else that has supported the design, you guys are awesome! Its what keeps me coming back to woot.

I'm kicking myself so hard right now...I had this idea initially when they posted the derby, and started sketching stuff up for it. Then I saw in the thread that you were working on the same thing, and I figured not many people would get the reference anyways, so I abandoned the idea. Boy am I a fool.

Are you working on a re-sub or is this your final design? I'll vote for sure if you polish it up a bit. Maybe a better font for the text, add a few embellishments. Regardless, my hat is off to you sir.

I don't care that the pluto thing is massively over-done - I do care that the shirt isn't very on-topic.

I care most that the shirt is by ramy, however, and so will never get a vote from me.



Aaaaaaaand this is why the Ramy hating is BS. You whine and moan, then when he does a design you actually like, you make it more about the designer than the design itself. Why should he bother listening to you people when straying from his aesthetic won't even make you happy?

I wasn't planning a re-sub. the font is my own handwriting and i wanted a "lazy boy wrote it one there last minute kind of look" haha. I might try to re-sub if i have some time. Thanks though!

I think this theme is kind of poopy. With that said, I am glad people are able to bend and even break the theme and get away with it. That way there are designs that are actually appealing to people like me that could careless about the true theme.... if that make sense.

I will agree. There are a lot of unrejected designs that don't adhere to the topic, science fair.


Edit: I got this from the main thread, so I have no idea what design this comment is in... just putting that out there because I don't know if this applies to the design or not.

Unfortunately I don't think that all the votes come from the "consumers" though. People vote for cool/cute designs not good shirt designs. I think the "I Want One" button should require you to put down the payment and if that shirt wins, you already bought it. If it doesn't you get your money back. That way you stop voting for cool designs and vote for cool shirt designs that you will actually wear.

I started to read the 9 paragraph comment that you left about this t-shirt, then my ADD kicked in and I started thinking about something else (I can't remember what), then I tried seeing how many times I could crack my knuckles in a row, then I got hungry and made a sandwich - man I really like tuna salad. Wait a minute, what was I talking about again???

I bet you like to play games, and probably really well. Risk, Chess, D&D, Tomb Raider... any of those hit? Oh, really? Hand-eye, I would've guessed that.

I'm brUno, the Blind Dog. I work mostly 3D, but I'm an old-school artist/cartoonist. I've done editorial and charicatures. I like telling stories with pictuers but I have a tendency to "show off" and over work/think stuff.

The quality I admire most in an artist is restraint. Restraint with the power to kill. It's like the old sensei that looks at you and you don't even consider making a move on him. Be cause you have no idea what he knows or what he'll do. I admire a man that learn his game and uses every strand to their advantage. This is what makes "Go" and Wooting so much FUN!

The TNMT was genius. Not the image, the entry. It's a distraction. You're good, really good. I've already figured out whot the "Dirty Dozen" are... and who the "Trinity" is and who all the other angels that are in Heather-Grey land.

I will get to know you. I will win one of these, ...soon, (I gotta get my swing adjusted for competition) within six months, and I will converse with you, then, as a peer. I will admire and challenge you till then.

The problem is the topic is middle school science fair, not elementary school science fair. Based upon your own words, this is off topic.

Good defense of your design ramyb. Artists should be able to elaborate on the topic and do things from their own perspective, it usually turns out better than if taken too literally.
