Your are seriously lacking some intelligence if you think the artist would be opposed to the money for it getting printed. It may not be the sole reason for submitting but to think it doesn't pop into every single artist that submits a design is ignorant.

Re: pi



I'm not trying to be mean but no way this is gonna print as shown and should be rejected for that fact alone since you are not properly showing the image at approximate size on the sample shirt. The blow up of the numbers you have show the size the lines are supposed to be, yet the numbers you show equate to less then a 6th of what the total image width would have to be with all the numbers on the top of the symbol. How big is the art when lines are at 4.5pt, because it looks like it's going to be over 20 inches wide at least which is FAR larger then the sample shirt your showing and potentially well outside Woot's printable area.

Am I missing something? I'm not sure I get it...It's awesome artwork, but I don't understand it.

Don't go swimming.

Re: One Small Step For A Man (v2)



I'm stupid excited that this is in the fog today. :D I hope it does well... If I make it home to any football games (Purdue alumna here, go Boilers) I'll definitely be wearing this shirt. Although.. not if you're going to be wearing it too, lyonscc...

Re: A Mother's Connection



The subject isn't one that I'd want to wear. It's well done, but the topic is one that is unlikely to be worn regularly. It feels...political.

On the technical side, I think it would have worked better to have the back/left side open, with one end on top and one under the belly. That way, the elements left out would seem out of frame rather than excluded.

Keep in mind, I'm not an artist. I just buy a lot of tees.

The artist didn't resubmit, this and the rejected version were both submitted at the same time. This really makes me wonder if the Rejectionator actually views the derby similar to how we do, or if the back end is completely different and hides things like this.

The problem is that other than some artists and a few grumpies, most voters don't have a problem with this. A little too subtle for 'trolling' round these parts.

Re: String Theory



Thanks everyone for the support on this design!

T', I did try out different sizes and styles for the ball at the end, but any bigger and it diddn't resemble a period and that worked against the readability of the word.

There's always that one person every derby that just has to be a tool, with multiple submissions none the less. Mission Complete.

They got you to look at their design, mission accomplished. It's as good as the scanned coloring book pages I'm seeing in here.

I will say last week's Imaginary Restaurant was an exception. Very good ORIGINAL designs were chosen as winners. Woot needs more of those type Derbies and rid themselves of these leeches who draw the same crap every week.

Agreed, though I clicked just to verify my own stupid curiosity of which user submitted this. Surprise. The troll has been fed. *shrugs* I hope at least one good design makes it to print this weekend.

I've always asserted that people who look at (or in this case, wear) art are just as qualified to have an opinion as those who make it. They just may not be as technical or lingo-savvy about it

For the subject, I'd agree it's not something I would generally wear (I am a mother of two), though I wouldn't say "political" nature, but like Mavyn I can't think of a better word. It's just a really niche subject and kindof awkward for a regular person to wear on their shirt. It might be helpful to browse through some past derbies and see what the winners and honorable mentions were, to get a feel for what type of shirts users (wearers? whatever we're called) typically buy here.
(Then throw out everything with Zelda/VideoGames/StarWars/Bunnies/etc... keep yourself pure! j/k)*

As for the design, I agree that it would look good to start the line at the top and end it on the bottom, so as to give the impression that the rest of the body is just out of the frame instead of closing the line off. The double line "placenta" around the fetus feels quite thick, as well as the triple line along the bottom. Maybe you could find a way to start at the top, outline fetus then circle around just once, then continue the line for the bottom of the belly.

As far as shirt comps, I'm not a pro (having never submitted... YET! One day...) but you might check out this forum post on the "Unofficial Rules" it's got alot of great stuff, as well as a link to a non-default shirt comp that isn't bad looking. You may need to update the colors to match current offical ones though, I haven't checked it recently. http://shirt.woot.com/Forums/ViewPost.aspx?PostID=1946963

*EDIT: Haha, I only just now looked to see that you've bought shirts here before, so you're probably already familiar with things! Disregard that piece of advice to browse past derbies then.
