That doesn't make sense to me. Is it an Iron Man thing that I just don't 'get'?



N# is a lesser used abrivation for Number (Number 1 HERO).

But based on the Unninja pupil issues in the Quality Control Thread, it doesn't matter what it says, you'll never be able to see it on the shirt.

Not obliged to, but I'd lay 1000:1 against you printing witout it.

EDIT: It is however, and EPIC shirt. I saw it and was Wowed. But in the Derby where they give us Mettallic Ink, I don't see a print without it placing, especially if they're pulling metal ink after this derby.

I'm not a fan of the olive colored shirt though. Even with gold paint, eehh. I think the metallic paint would look stunning on the royal blue, plus it would then work as water for your seahorse



Thanks for the input! I tried it out on blue~

Nothing directly profane, no. However, I think that between the smoking, the implied sex and the vulgar-based-on-the-context-of-the-shirt title, I don't know if it will fly.

I've actually only seen 2 now that didn't have gold. I've seen about 5 that are using slightly different colors for(#b69624).

LOL Nice discussion you have here. It's -obviously- a Zelda spoof.

Just wanted to do the thing, but without any copyright infringement, so I tought that a sport parody design would do the trick.

That's right, and that's why I just drew something similar....but different. You can compare with bounty's image, the shapes are vaguely similar, but it's easy to see that it refers to LOTR

Thank you for your nice words. I don't think LOTR is a death horse. I've been here for less than a year, but I think there aren't many shirt.woot LOTR shirts

Fun, but I'm not sure how it's about gold? Is it because his suit has some gold on it?



Derby is not about gold. Is about use gold metallic ink. If you have a look at the submissions, there are plenty of no gold.


Does his hat say N#1 Hero?
That doesn't make sense to me. Is it an Iron Man thing that I just don't 'get'?



A way to abreviatte Number 1. Usually used when numbering comic books, for example.

Re: Tusked Raiders


Somewhere, in an alternate universe, this fearsome duo is thundering across the steppes, pursuing their quarry. They are pure animal instinct and ferocity. If you're close enough to smell their hot, dusty hides, you won't live to tell about it.

I guess all the time I spent reading Heavy Metal magazine in my teens hasn't gone to waste. Think of it as Frazetta-esque, and it'll make more sense.

I resubbed this because I forgot to show the design on a shirt originally.

For what it's worth, the 1st place design from the Robots Save the World derby did not use the offered silver metallic ink, and only four of the total fogged entries did, albeit two of them printed.


I feel like there was another metallic ink derby in between, but I'm drawing a blank.

Granted, but that brings us back to "is this a derby about gold, or a derby about gold ink?"
