I think Woot ran out of space for the list of shirts in the reckoning; Ramy has 5 in there currently.

I like it, but can't accept it. The Death Star's volume is overestimated as the divet-like focusing cone detracts from the calculated volume.

If this was a real substitute teacher, he wouldn't have made it that far through his lesson plan.


In fact, I bet that's why things like that small air shaft allowed Luke to destroy the deathstar in the first place.

You start with the basics, A, B, C, and than by the end of the day you're teaching about deathstar circumference, blaster shields and the proper ratio of bathrooms to star destroyer length.

How odd. ABCs and then vector calculus in the same room... Definitely a substitute who has no idea what the kids are actually learning and is trying to show off.

I think this is a "Spaceballs" shirt more than a "Star Wars" shirt. My evidence:

1. The oversize helmet and glasses suggest Helmet over Vader. And Helmet wore a tie.

2. The chalkboard shows a pie chart. A pizza pie chart. Pizza the Hut!

3. The formula on the chalkboard is obviously a representation of Ludicrous Speed.

4. The "A-B-C-D-E" is clearly a veiled reference to the access code of the shield surrounding Planet Druidia (and President Scroob's luggage).

5. The desk is full of merchandise advertising the sequel - "Spaceballs II - The Search for More Money".

The circle is now complete; when he left school, he was but the learner, now he is the master.

Actually, there are a lot of lines this works with.

Vader's cape fell all the way to the ground and was epic. The cape in this design lacks the awesome. -:/ I can't find anything I like about the design. And the sad cape makes me sad. ;-; That's all.

It is the derivation of the formula for the volume of a sphere by taking the area of a circle and rotating it 360 degrees about the x-axis. It utilizes differential calculus.

Somehow, using the powers of the almighty M. C. Escher, his cape is in front of the table, while his foot is behind it. I wish I had a cape like that.

I love Star Wars, but I already got my fix with the vastly superior bantha shirt. I feel like if anyone but Ramyb made this it wouldn't be here today. Not one of his stronger works.

To paraphrase Obi-Wan Kenobi, "That's no pie chart."

I've seen that kind of cape...it's the kind that wraps around your body. Like a cloak. Or any other bit of cloth -_-

its not that odd, actually. the cape edge is a 3D arc, and it looks like it might be caught on the table corner. plus, he has THE FORCE.

i'll belay my scorn as any Escher reference is a good reference, even the bad ones.

To everyone who so arrogantly, and often ignorantly, criticized the creator of this shirt...look who just won top 3!

It is so ridiculous how many out there think so highly of their "critique of art" when they apparently don't understand true art at all. Since when was art ever in perfect and life-like proportions and perspective? If anything, THAT'S EXACTLY what makes art! Otherwise we'd just take real-life pictures and put them on a shirt.

Hey Ramyb, good job dealing with the criticism, and even taking some into consideration. Because now, this shirt represents not only an awesome Star Wars reference, but the ability of an artist to stick by what he felt like designing, because that is the beauty of art, whether for woot shirt derbies or Sistene chapels.

I really wish I had been around during the pre-vote, design development discussion.
MAYBE it's not too late to make the change.
MAYBE it was intentional (and that's why Vader lost out).
However, the bottom line is wrong.
The volume of a sphere is:
4/3 x pi x r^3 ... not r^2
The area of a sphere is
4 x pi x r^2
Generally, r is length, r^2 is area, r^3 is volume.
If the shirts have not yet been printed, maybe it's not too late to fix this.
(Think Geek once fixed a missing double bond on a chemical structure of capsaicin.)

... just noticed that in the original post, the "enlarged" part above the actual design has r^3.
(But did not see discussion of the error in the last line in the actual design.)
