I like the idea, but it took me far too long to realize that the boy he was holding was a stuffed toy, and not a real human....

Re: My big monster



You've been stretching out stylistically in the derbies lately. There were a couple in a recent derby that I liked and didn't even recognize as yours. Not that I don't like your vector mashup style but it's cool to see some more of your range.

Now imagine a piece of paper with this image being mildly wrinkled and then stylized as the artist has done...voila!



I know the original... and it makes sense... I was just meaning that since the hands are BUILDING themselves instead of drawing themselves, the same idea wouldn't apply...

Not trying to knock the piece though... like I said, I dig it and voted for it.

Seconded; the the most foul, cruel, and bad-tempered rodent you ever set eyes on is kind of tough to see on light gray, since he's white.

Pink might work, but I'd suggest a darker gray (possibly cave-colored).

Woot rules indicate one shirt color per entry, so you'd want to submit two entries, one with each color option.

I like the design, but the changes in your signature to MONSTER size and the advertising in a slew of other threads...not so cool.

I don't know why, but this one reminds me of Julia Roberts going poopy. Maybe it's the facial resemblance.

ochopika wrote:I didn't think of this before, but I want to highlight what Spiritgreen said. It is important to convert your WHOLE image to halftones for your shirt comp. This is so that people are voting for the image as it will REALLY look on a shirt. Your design will look much smoother and shinier as gradients, but that's not how it really looks as a printed design. Woot may have rejected your designs because of that, also it's kind of "false advertising" if you think about it... not that you're trying to do that, just saying that making the whole thing half-toned is another way you can fend off the rejections.



Gotcha - that makes sense.

I see they rejected this one as "We can't print this", but didn't reject the other one.

I still didn't hear from them in email, but I can see where this one is harder. Hopefully I'll still get some explanation, but this is an improvement, at least :-)

In the future, I'll just paste the full halftone, shrunk down and send them a full-size version to show some of the things y'all demonstrated for me.

Even though it was ultimately rejected, this really helped me learn some of the more intricate details of design/printing, so I'll still count it as a win - because if you learn something you didn't know before, you're still better for it.

(Kind of like learning the hard way that having unique literary names, like "Mordor" is an auto-reject...)

Thank you again, all, for helping me out here!

Umm I like the design dude but this is not a shirt color that WOOT offers and it's probably gonna get rejected. It's WWAAAAYYYY off from the royal blue on hand.

It's always great to see new artists enter the fray. I absolutely love this design and style. I hope to see more of this kind of work in future derbies!

Re: alf ending



I think the rejectionator is saying you're using a copyrighted/trademarked? character with no parody. Also, this is up for voting at Threadless right now and woot requires exclusive rights to the design, FYI. I think Threadless does, too.

Well crap, I was hoping the improved thumbnail would have had much more of an effect. I'm offended that at least 2 of the "face on a shirt" designs have way more votes than this.

Re: The Monster Cookie



Very cute shirt and I love the level of detail you put into it! I also enjoyed watching the video of how you designed it! However, I agree with Mavyn - spamming every other fogged shirt thread with your own shirt is not cool at all.
