* Not math that's common knowledge, anyway, other than genotypes and probability (Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, crosses...). You could argue for significant differences between sequences or quantitative genetics or something, but that doesn't come to mind from this.
I do specialize in genetics, specifically quantitative genetics, and there are absolutely no mathematical concepts that this evokes. You can't have Hardy Weinberg without a population. I see none. There are no mathematical constants associated with DNA stability or binding energy between strands because it depends entirely on the amino acid residues in a given strand. This is like drawing any random object, say a cute bunny, on the ground and saying it represents gravity.
The concept is great, but the text ruins it for me. I suggest either ditching the text or incorporating the theme into the text. More "geometrees" might be better too, like a forest.

It appears that the Ss heterozygoes have the dominant phenotype. I think the costume differences are a result of how each turtle was raised.
Re: Probability Of A Blue Spiny
This is too awesome for words.
Yay! I voted for the first one, but I'm glad I came back and checked the derby again before I went to bed and saw the resub. I hope you make it into the fog!
Re: Onomatopoeias b.C.
I would totally buy this if you made a version that was just the cow I love it.
Re: Phi of the Beholder
Phi of the Beholder
Here's my riff on the golden spiral. Enjoy!
Re: Long Division
Weird, I never posted in the pre-derby area Maybe someone else had a similar idea?
btw all halftones before woot thinks i used gradients..ill load a close up of the bottle in the morning.
Re: Nerd Hive
Ooh, my inner D&D-nerd-self loves this shirt...
Re: Flying Lessons
I would buy one of this, totally ;D
Re: Fluid Dynamics
Wwwaaa, i going to buy this as soon as it gets into the reckoning.
collinvh wrote:I have this same concept half finished right now What is the woot ruling on something like this? Is it still cool to post it or should I just give up on it?
Post it. There are many times in which the idea is the same, but the execution is completely different.

I just thought it was visually striking.
6 colors on Cranberry
This. Obviously "doppler effect" brings to mind "Big Bang theory" but also, this quote from RHPS springs to mind- "you won't find earth people quite the easy mark you imagined, CFDunbar. This machine- it is I suppose, some sort of audio vibratory, sonic molecular transport device?"
As such, it's /GMV. =)
This is beautiful. The math isn't as obvious either, which is different and refreshing. But mostly beautiful. If I bought this, I would frame it... With my body.
He's chubby! Hooray fall squirrels!. Also, like the physics diagram
tdziekan wrote:I guess I just like original shirts. To each his or her own
Ha, you think that Gingerbread shirt was original, that it was the first time that da Vinci's Vitruvian Man design was appropriated to something that's not a man? Hardly.
I like this design, very cutely drawn cat, and I like the pencil like style.
blk909 wrote:aw, bummer it was rejected. very cool.
I wish I had more of an explanation. "can't print" is a bit open ended. Is the design too complex or is it due to some other issue? I would resubmit if I knew what to fix.
Re: FIBONACCI INITIATIVE
AWESOME! Fibonacci and Lost!
citizencoyote wrote:I can't tell if you're accusing Patrick of artistic plagiarism or not, but he's about the last artist I would suspect of stealing ideas.
As for the design itself, this is ultra cool. I have not been overly impressed with some of his recent entries, but I love this one.
I wasn't accusing him of plagiarism. I had used one of the stock illustrations the other day and this design made me think of it. Thought maybe he submitted at both sites- I do. No offense intended.

Can't print generally means due to copyright restrictions. Regardless of how they feel about the design, the characters are copyrighted.
Edit: Why is this posting here? Oh well.
Re: DNA swirl
This is awesome!
Yes, this works much better. Nice adjustment.

Ummm... It says no text-only designs (which this is not), and it says that this is a hermit crab in the title.
clever indeed! you've earned my vote!
ochopika wrote:Thank you! It is berry-colored, I didn't notice that. Yummy. I've been working on color and value recently. That's why I worked on red shirts the past couple times (the color is harder for me to work with) and why this one has lots of halftones going on. If I can't win the derby I might as well use it to make my art better.
@noble aborigineemeyer (mommy): thanks for sounding like a huge hippie
*edit: lol it censored your name.*
@citizencoyote: lol, kthulu reference. At first I thought you left me a word jumble to solve.
@walmazan: I always appreciate your vote!
I want my new screen name to be aborigineemeyer!
wolfgaidin wrote:Awesomely eye catching! I also appriciate the fact that it's actual art and not just a cutesy design.
Thanks so much, I appreciate the vote.

There's a youtube video that explains it, here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2zWivbG0RIo
If that doesn't work....just search "The Golden Mean" and it should pop up
paigeg wrote:I liek the design overall. Don't care for the eyes, though. They really aren't necessary and, in fact, I think they take away from what you've otherwise accomplished. JMHO.
I think the design is delightful, even with the eyes, even though I'm not a pop culture fan either. Somehow you managed to keep the delicacy of the design with the eyes there.

But why would this be any more copywrite infringing than the cookie monster shirt that's sold so well?

I actually started off with a homage to Big Bang Theory, NOT a Zebra but while researching Doppler Effect (so that I had a working knowledge of what I was drawing) I came up with this idea.
It has been so long since I last saw RHPS I can't remember my lines.... I will now wear the paper bag of shame.
Thanks for the +1 Cephy!

If I have the time to switch shirt colors out I'll get another entry up. Thanks for the suggestion.
