Anyone else think this derby would have gone a lot better if all video game characters had been banned? There's almost no designs that are even on topic as far as I'm concerned. I think this design is about the only one where the inclusion of the characters is even remotely appropriate. It's a common satire, but at least it has something to do with the gamer and not just random characters doing human things. For that among other reasons, my pick was pretty easy.

That Gamer Chick Who Pwned Everyone's Hearts by imsochady


I mostly went with this one because it's one of the few that's actually on topic, and it's about the only one I'd even consider wearing. I think I have said plenty already about diagonal designs, but I really love how this one was put together. All of the little elements blend together really well. I also really like the colors. I can't help but think that asphalt or navy would have led to better contrast, but I do appreciate the boldness that those colors lack that brown does provide. I'm not sure that's the best description of what I mean, but it makes sense in my head.

I'm sort of disappointed we didn't get a counterpoint design though. I'm sure this is what is generally imagined when people hear that female voice on vent, but it'd be nice to see just an average girl as well.

I cast 2 votes this week. A record low for me, I believe.

My pick is Hardcore Gamer, but orabbit. (which makes his work my favorite, I guess, since that's three picks since we started this). I don't play video games, and most of the non-video game entries don't interest me. I like the distressing, and it makes me laugh.



My other vote went to How to fold a cube , final version, since my dad loved all of the Rubix cubes and was a whiz at solving them.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Thanls for your picks this week and last, Mavyn! But be careful what you wish for - you remember what happened the first time. I'll enter the fray with my pick this week.

Saving Throw by ApeLad.


I just started playing D&D with my 7 yr old recently, so it's relevant to me. Although, Mr. Apelad, bugbears are supposed to have snubbed bearish noses, not pointy ones. Maybe it's "uncool" to pick something in the fog, but I like, and I would buy it, and I think others would too.

edit- I'm trying to get the stupid native smilies to work. I know how to do : wink : , but what are the other ones?

edit2- thanks no1!

If that's the case, Mr. W is the coolest dude on the planet.
My pick this week would be "you sunk my battleship", by CbeardhanglowI'd like to see a bit more definition to the characters, but the joke is clever and the style is appropriately "period" (if the period is the 50's ).

move along

Psshhhht. I don't worry about that. I thought it was a great design, spot on.

Thanks for the pick and critique J5! I'll definitely work on that if I resubmit it elsewhere.
My choice is odroc's "When life gives yo chutes."I dig the message of you gotta make your own luck to get ahead. At least that is how I read it.
