Re: Miso Happy Time


There are actual restaurants with names similar to this:
Me So Hungry in Austin
Miso Hungry in Miami

If it hasn't been rejected yet, pretty sure it's fine.

True. There are two operations who are similar, according to the {indisputable} web.
"Me So Hungry" is a different, though similar name. I did not, however, know about it.

"Miso Hungry's" name is ambiguous. If you look at the design, it looks like "Miso Xungry." I didn't know about this one either, until it was pointed out above. I don't think, especially since neither has a "™" or "®" symbol next to their name, there is any conflict here.

Woot has a lot of awesome and awesomely strange and frustrating replacement filters. :-)

Regarding notifications, I think deals.woot is the only site that sends out alerts. Unfortunately, you just have to keep checking back or browse the complete thread for each derby. I usually start with the last page and work backwards.

Also, another tip, your thumbnail is very important since that's how most people browse. Your first one wasn't very appealing and this one, thumbnail and design, is loads better. Good luck!

That tip just changed my life a little bit. Love your lines. I've been playing with that engraving style, but yours looks so clean. Nice job!

p.s. How have NEITHER of these businesses been protested relentlessly for their gross offensiveness?

You have to admit that this design WILL look better on a shirt, since it has no gradations and will weather the years of wear and washing.

Re: Apple Store



You need to have a tee layout shown as well. Otherwise, it will be rejected (if they do another round--this late in the derby, things slip through)

Hmm. Good point. I've noticed how the comments I get change from people liking my design to liking the reference when I go pop. Maybe it's time for a Darth Vader meets Dr. Who shirt...

This is really well done.

However...it's totally off topic. Check out the rules and think about entering something that won't be rejected.

What I want to know is, where is the shirt depicting the infamous Noodle-Barbecue Fusion restaurant?

Yes, manual. I figured it would be good to have the text turning to ash (Chicxulub was the site of the big, dino-ending asteroid) so I cut into the text with the lasso in Photoshop and shifted it up, letter by letter. Then I added some flakes above it with the pencil. :^)

The cup looks pasted over the spilled drink, and doesn't look at all like it ever contained fluids.



I do see the liquid issue, however, I don't see the plastic issue, the base shows substance, as with a glass. Move along ? Is that a signature or your tag ?

Re: Wine & Spirits (with text)



Some people were requesting that the tag line be on the shirt as well so I thought I'd go ahead and put this second version up. Hope you like it!

Since that's the second request I've gotten on the thread I decided to put a second version WITH the tag line up for voting. Go support it here!

Re: Hannibal's Bistro



I think this would do better if there were a few more elements. I'm normally a fan of keeping thing simple, but the meat and beans don't have any context. A plate, napkin...just something to ground them instead of having the float within the text.
Having the base of the wine glass 'flat' messes with the plane perspective for the meat and beans.

Thanks for all the comments and votes everyone! This was a lot of fun to make, and I've been sitting on this character for quite a while. Feels nice to shoot him out into the real world!

Thanks again!

Thanks for the advice, well received. I agree, I am new to the shirt derbies and CS6 so I struggle to get shirts posted in time. I wanted to add more, such as a plate and a place mat, but simply ran out of time.

Hmm, not sure where the notion of plastic came from (eta: Oh! Because I said "cup"). I was saying the glass, as an object, looked as if it were pasted over the picture of the fluid as opposed to being drawn as a cohesive whole.

"Move along" is in my signature. Seems to fit most of my posts .
I'm not sure how other people get theirs to be all shadowy and stuff.

I wasn't trying to make it really tricky. The configuration is already there, I just took what already existed and imagined it slightly differently...

You have a typo. You need to put an "e" on the end of "scrap" to make it scrape.
