Re: Hip Knitter



Fair warning, hip knitters of the world. Woot does screen printing in six custom colors, which is INSANE. Going elsewhere will either be very expensive or done in CMYK dot-printing (like books) which isn't nearly as vivid, especially on dark shirts.

I'm going to be doing a lot of reading, but if someone can point me to prior threads and resources narrowing down my options, I'd appreciate it.

That or Woot could come by on a white horse and carry my design off to its castle for printing. *sigh*

Re: POLITICALPONG



It's going to keep driving me nuts if I don't say this out loud. Doesn't Political Pong with a picture of a traditional Pong field, only changing the shape of the puck to put a label on it, remind anyone of an existing game called Pong?

I'm really trying not to be one of those "Everything should be disqualified unless it's totally perfectly in my magic definition of the theme" people, but I just keep staring at this and trying to understand why it was let through.

Thanks very much for the extended critique and suggestions, I really appreciate that as someone just starting out...great to hear what people are thinking specifically, what they like and what might be keeping them from voting.

I must admit, though it might be obvious, that I've never been much of an RPG gamer so I mostly 'winged it' so I could get it submitted ASAP...but a little bit more research and thought probably would've served me better. I really like the 'Make Excuse' option...shoulda thought of that.

Kevinnn, the entrance bar for voting is buying something from any Woot site. If you see an existing t-shirt you like, once you've bought it you can jump in the pool! You can submit designs without having bought anything, though.

Fingers crossed for the Awkward Moment! This is my insta-buy for the Derby.

It wasn't obvious to me! I thought you were one of those people who got to play the games as a kid instead of getting scraps of them as an adult like I did.

Illustrator v7. I cut and pasted each 8 pixel square of color on a "snap-to" grid with 1 pixel black frame around eack square. It took forever, but I like how it turned out.

I don't even know what this is. Portal reference blending into death reference? And it's patriotic? I think "huh?" summed it up pretty well.



I assume your ignorance (willful or otherwise) is not the basis upon which rejections are made?

Re: BreakfastQuest



#$%@! I saw this too late. I'm bummed I can't vote for it as the design reminds me of a last ditch tactic I've employed in those types of games. However, I see it's in the fog. Here's truly hoping your design wins!

Lily, I'm sorry, but I have no idea better than has already been described, and I like to think myself pop culture literate. It went over our heads completely, which makes it not generally accessible.

Could you please explain the joke?

Re: Cat Decoy



I think the placement is a little odd, though. I wish the design was a little lower, or else bigger and stacked vertically...so there wouldn't be so much empty green shirt left over.

Yes, yes, yes! I got my Fruminator a couple months ago and it's so awesome -- there's way less fur on the couch, every time I brush the cat, I get big handfuls and start to wonder how long it would take to have enough to knit a sweater. (haha)

And I want this shirt!!!

With Ramy entering derbies, what is the point of even trying? Just give him the job of making a shirt a week and get him off of being able to enter. His stuff destroys everything, even when they aren't even related to the theme like this shirt.

I'd have the same reaction.

However, I think it has more to do with the realization that a place that was once full of great and creative artwork is now nothing but the same cutesy animal and pun shirts every week that appeal to nothing but (mod note: "things I, the writer disagree with and the mods considered trolling")

That's the power of democracy, I suppose.

gement wrote:Out of curiosity, people with more technical history than me, what screen resolutions do you associate with 8-bit? Specifically, what's the largest screen resolution that you would consider correct?

Since the Derby masters didn't specify, I was a process-oriented freak and looked up the screen width of an Apple IIe. But I don't know if True 8-Bit Fans think that counts.



This is so late to the game that it isn't helpful at all. But when you say 8-bit graphics that instantly means consoles. Which in turn instantly means NES games. So I don't know what resolution those would have. But it wouldn't be hard to look at the zelda's and mario's and duck hunt's of that console to get a good idea. Also, just because things as good looking as kirby were on it doesn't mean that look is what comes to mind when 8-bit is said, it's generally the older ones.
