Yeah, about that...
I've never understood the hate for heather grey. At all.
Anyway, fantastic design. Richly deserves a print. Fingers crossed!

You have the correct rank, but the wrong officer...he looks like-->
This is definitely a more female-friendly design, but superb regardless. You've become one of my favorite artists lately. I look forward to your work each week. Someday you'll garner a well deserved print, hopefully sooner than later.
Delightfully bizarre. I hope you keep submitting to derbies. I really like your style.

Ummm...this could be interpreted several ways I think....

Sorry to see this out of the fog; style suits the idea to a (pause) t.
Re: “License and Registration”
ha! great stuff + my favorite ride.
Totally reminds me of Hagar the Horrible!
Re: Delusions of Grandeur
yes, as mentioned above, very orange cat.
Re: The Red Barron's First Flight
If this prints I'll have to buy two. One to wear and one to stare at.

Re: We are NOT amused !
Great save - I loved the first one, but rules are rules. Looking forward to more from you.

thanks very much. Yes, I'll be glad to stick around and have another go. Looks like a lot of fun.
Re: Elephant Ears
LMAO- this shirt is awesome!

Hehe, Oh good. Thanks for your encouraging comments.

thanks. it's funny, I like the first one too and I was worried it wouldn't work as well with less colours, but I actually like the new version even better. There's a lesson in that I think.
Re: Forever A-Coastin' (beautiful brown!)
I also have the concern that the design may not show as well on the the dark shirt, although i like a color better. What about some sort of dark that isn't quite as dark as the brown--or making the roller coaster a lighter color? Just exploring possibilities.
I really like this brown though. It probably would print fine.
Re: Lucky Roller V2
What about a black shirt?

I have always wanted a bear too big to carry. Sadly no one has ever won one for me.
Re: Wooden Wonder - The Main Attraction
I was so excited when I heard this derby theme, because the men in my house are HUGE coaster buffs and I thought there would be a lot of roller coaster choices. But I have been disappointed by the "cutsie" shirts that have been prevailing in a lot of the derbies lately. Not that I have anything against cute, but I was happy to see this design. Hope you get pushed into the FOG, I would totally buy this design for my son and my husband. Plus one from me!!!

I hope you like it!
BEST! My favorite in the derby by far
oh, and the place for REAL coaster buffs is Cedar Point Ohio - too many monsters to even name, though it has my husband's favorite wooden coaster of all time - Magnum. and my favorites - Millineum Force and Top Thrill Dragster!!
Welcome to the Woot Derby! I hope that we see more of you! Feel free to reach out to the people around here... we're all pretty friendly.
Great job on your first entry.
nuklearpie wrote:Love the concept!
Just a couple of things I would like to see in this.
1. Without knowing the context of the shirt "amusement parks," it's a bit difficult to to extrapolate that the short knight (SK) is being rejected for the siege. Or at least, it's not immediately apparent that is the intention. I would add maybe a long line of tall knights behind the catapult, or have it pass by the SK. Or even have a ride entrance gate with festive amusement designs!
I think the rejection reads quite well (clearly the short knight is dejected), but I think there's a disconnect between the "measuring" and the "ride"...the catapulting knight is fairly far in the background. I could see this reading better if there were a "cattle chute" leading up to the catapult with other (taller) knights in it, and maybe a queue of knights behind the short knight, just to reinforce that the short knight is being rejected from "the ride" that everyone else is getting to go on.
Re: The Caffeinator
BLA! Cool, thank you ThatRobert and bluejester.
Thanks also @ gymst & MathUhhhSaurus. ^_^
I'm glad you ignored my opinion about not resubmitting for this derby. That's a pretty respectable quantity of votes for a first-timer and a late entry to boot. Seems like a lot of people like your style. Congrats.

Thank you so much, you really made my day. Normally I don't do such girlie stuff. I have no idea where this came from. LOL. Must have been the Spring feeling...
I totally want to hire you to do an avatar for me just because of the faces on this one. I still chuckle every time I see the OOOOOO face.
Re: Lady Liberty's Day at the Fair
Very nice. I think the Panda is fine. Only thing I might have added would be maybe lights on her crown, you know those LED lights that you get at the carnival that blink and look completely ridiculous but you think they're cool at the time It might set off the crown a little, too.
Just saying. Got my vote and I do like it a lot. Great idea.
gayemeyer wrote:What about a black shirt?
Or a color in the design (blue or red, PLEASE NOT YELLOW!!!), though that might kill the look.
I don't care for this green, either, but I do like the design. Sort of like that "Life is Good" guy. He did pretty well for himself
Re: Not Amused
Is this like, Bad Santa meets bunny land?
Re: Big Winner!
I love your color choices and the robot's self-satisfied look. Wish more folks agreed!
Re: It's All Fun and Games Until...
definitely a creative twist to the "line of similar things w/ 1 being different and the closest ones noticing while others oblivious"...there's got to be a shorter description than that but my mind is failing me today.
great shirt. GMV
Re: A Delicious Fate
sad face...get these spuds back in the fog where they belong!
This is the only shirt I would buy out of the fog, I really hope it gets printed!
ETA: I meant the Lost in Nightmares one, looks like the quote didn't make it through.
ATTENTION THEME PARK GUESTS:
THE WOODEN WONDER WILL CLOSE IN 1 HOUR. We hope you enjoyed your ride on the Wooden Wonder. The Woot! roller coaster will open at noon tomorrow with different twists and turns. This will be the final ride for the Wooden Wonder. ALL ABOARD!
Really wish I could buy this one.
The Monty Python vibe is most excellent. Wonderfully offbeat.
Don't get discouraged by other talent; there are a lot of good artists submitting to the derbies these days. All it takes is unique vision (check), memorable style (check), good timing (better luck next time) and a heaping of luck to get into the cloud. Best of that last one to you in future derbies, but GMV anyway!
