Great use of the shirt color in this one.

Kind of Iron Giantish.. well, at least how Shooter portrayed it

Very much getting a Portal feel from this one. Not exactly, but at first glance . . .

Okay, time to play some Portal again. Thanks Woot.

Sort of reminds me of Yoshimi, except the giant robots aren't pink.

Why, yes, I would like a kickass science-fiction shirt with a strong female protagonist. Thank you, Woot.

The bridge in the distance reminds of the Golden Gate for some reason...Or the Brooklyn Bridge. Definitely seen that bridge somewhere!

Write up reminds me of the narrator in Bastion. (Best game narration in the history of game narration, btw) I would kill to have that guys voice.

Based on the writeup she doesn't need a bigger gun.

I don't know.

I wouldn't call that design centered. I'd say that's more like rentered- right centered . Great shirt nonetheless!

I'm trying to figure out what this is supposed to be based on - if anything - but I just keep drawing a blank. It kind of reminds me of The Hunger Games though.

I think that if that gun she's brought is the elec-beam she'll be okay, because I'm totally seeing the Yellow Devil robot from Mega Man.

That head could just as well be alien... aliens vs robots?

Reminds me of Black Rock Shooter The Game OP (search for that on YouTube if you haven't seen it).

Me, too - something that was either printed or submitted for a derby here. Something with a similar shape and colors, and a similar girder across the top. But as looking back to the beginning of 2009 didn't produce anything, either a) I'm remembering something that didn't print, b) I just plain didn't see it in the thumbnails, or c) I'm hallucinating. All valid possibilities.

And it wouldn't necessarily make this derivative, if there were something similar out there. The shape & colors are a natural outflow from the design concept, seems to me.

Since we are playing shirt association game (TM)... stylistically, it reminded me of this design (never printed anywhere ?) by Deadfrog:



The character and setting though, definitely gave me a Daisy Kutter vibe:



As I have saved the former image to my hard drive for reference, and own The Last Train, I can say that both elements are working in the shirts favor :P

I thought of Deadfrog's design as well. This is a really cool shirt in it's own right

I also guessed Michael Evans from the thumbnail, but I'm really liking Anna-Maria's more cartoon/comic book aesthetics in this particular design.

The way the light is textured gives a sense of dust and dirt in the air, and the red eye is a very cool focal point. Great design!

This is the story you don't hear about the War of the Worlds because the guys are too ashamed to say that it was she who slayed the first of those maniacal machines.

You've just sparked a potentially brilliant (or horrible) new franchise. Alien vs. Terminators.

Design placement looks a little off-center to me, rather than "centered". But it works wonderfully for this design.

Don't buy this, I'm waiting for weeks for my dark night shirt.
SMART POST SUCKS - 2 WEEKS AND WAITING
Two weeks ago it shipped and it is still days away. Woot screws me again. It seems every time I order from Woot I get the slowest shipping in the world. I'm stupid for even buying from them again

I'm sorry that you're unhappy with your free shipping. If you do a little searching/reading, you'll find that free shipping generally runs about 1-2 weeks for most everyone--and that's not even counting the holiday shipping delay or the random instances of "let's take a tour of the country on fedex trucks" (though those seem to be super-rare now, admittedly, so yay! there). In its FAQ, woot DOES promise you your item within 5-100 days with free shipping. I guess most people who choose the free shipping are just grateful that 1-2 weeks is much closer to 5 days than 100. I know I am.

If the widely- and freely-acknowledged super-slow "smart"post free shipping is not to your liking, I do encourage you to spend the $5 on overnight shipping. Otherwise... well, it's woot. Welcome to woot: where free shipping is slow.

Have you never had anything shipped via Smartpost before? Use a different shipping service if you don't want to wait. Dunno why you're blaming Woot for that.

Hi guys, artist speaking here. Thanks for the super nice comments!

To clear up speculations (though, it's sooo nice to read them haha) there is not too much thought behind this except that I love "strong female protagonists" and Science-Fiction - and the whole "girl fighting a giant robot" motive is probably an image that has appeared a hundred times in our pop culture ;-)

But I also definitely love the Yoshimi Song (even though I made the reference not super clear by making the robot green instead of pink).
