at least you drew something instead of scanning a picture from a coloring book

Well to be honest, I tried to use something from my daughter's strawberry shortcake book but I couldn't stay within the lines.

I like this, it feels right. I also like your handle. Artrocity!

Thanks, superdoodle! You have no idea how much your comment made me laugh. I re-worked that mustache a half a dozen times at least. Lol. It kept looking Hitler-esque. ;P

It needed more sciency, current event, or other common Woot trope to really sell it. Steam-Pirate-Ninja-Tree maybe?

The subject matter was a veiled comment. Lesson learned about appropriate level of subtlety.

Re: The Ultimate Fibonacci Spiral



I'm giving a mathematician friend the beautiful picture book "Growing Patterns: Fibonacci Numbers in Nature" by Sarah Campbell for his birthday, and I would *so* love to be able to give him this T-shirt to go with 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.



I really appreciate the artistic advice. I wasn't happy with the lines and actually wanted them thinner. On the other hand, I submitted so late in the week that I knew it wouldn't win and I had a choice to spend another hour tweeking line thicknesses(i wanted the baby a lot more delecate/thinner), or I could go to sleep and get another hour before having to go to work. You see which one won.
The outer placenta line was meant to be thicker than the inner, and the 'arm' a bit thicker than that. representing a protected enviroment for the child. I think it would have gotten across better had I spent more time on thinning the baby lines as well.
Since I did not have any hope of winning, I didn't mind submitting on such a 'political', 'sensitive', or generally 'not teeshirt worthy' subject matter. My goal this week was to at least submit something. Next week(in couple days) I'll try harder to make a shirt that (i think) will actually sell.
Once again, thankyou so much for the feed back! Even though the contest is over, I'll probably spend more time tweeking the design to post on my Deviant Art account, so I appreciate the artistic/design opinion and will look into those options!
(ps, I LOVE BUNNIES! i've bought the infinibunny shirt off here. bunny inifinity, touching paws, creepy red eyeshttp://s3.amazonaws.com/wootsaleimages/Bunnies_Forevervw8Detail.png)

You could have easily turned it into a suspension bridge and been 10000000000000000000000 times less offensive and still use 100% of your original design

Re: It's In My Blood



Artistic/design opinion: The coffee cup looks a bit like an apple, a line along the 'front rim' of the cup would have helped immensely.
Shirt wearer/coffee drinker opinon: AOH MAH GAWD! IT'S A COFFEE LINE!
....that is all :D

I like it. There's nothing wrong with a little subtlety. I think it's underused around here sometimes. Plus, I learned the word polemic, so that's an added bonus!

Re: Two Fish, One Line



I was at first captivated by this design. It wasn't until I headed over to the comments section that I learned it was a Boots shirt. My captivation turned to uncertainty. Has my shirtwoot! crush on Boots clouded my judgement? No, it's just darn fine work.
