I'm working on another idea though that should be more popular: think of it as a rechargeable battery theme...



this is such a fun entry! it'll definitely have my vote when entered. great recycling

I think its one of my best designs. I will always love my herding revolution, though.

Green means nature, growth, jealousy, and aliens. The alien ship comes down from the skies, and waters one flower, and one alone. That flower thrives, with greenery gathering around it. The non-watered flower is green with jealousy, watching the other flower grow.



Many of the designs in the derby don't actually deal with green as a concept. I really appreciate all the disparate concepts of green you incorporated into one design. I tried to do the same thing in mine.

you can email them and ask. they've changed a few people's usernames at their request.

I think it's less problematic than asking for an un-rejection, but more troublesome than doing nothing.

or you could just create another acct, but that wouldn't have the purchases & comment totals

And in derby news, um, I'm really proud of my design.

ok I am irritated. someone totally stole my idea. or a major part of it. I am getting ready to finish up my submission, and someone stole it. what are the chances that mine will be rejected, even though i posted my idea first in the derby thread?

I don't know what the official policy is, but you could "tattle" on the other entry, referencing your post in the Derby thread. Wootstaff and mods should be able to see posting and editing times. (Mabe don't edit your original Derby post so the last edit shows up as before the other entry was posted).

Keep in mind that parallel thought processes aren't that uncommon. It may be just coinkydink. Often when that happens someone will say "great minds think alike." What derby entry and what derby post?

well, its possible. i don't know if this person is a consistent contributor or not. http://shirt.woot.com/Derby/Entry.aspx?id=17263
and I posted in the derby thread for this derby my idea of a melting earth ice cream cone, but adding an alien baby coveting it, but with the title "the real danger of global warming" maybe its just coincidence. I just find it rather startling, and I am hoping mine doesn't get rejected, considering i posted my idea immediately when the derby was announced, and posted something last night here with a rough draft of my cone. it just kind of ticks me off, the similarity. and hopefully they are not copying, but just thinking of the same thing.

When you submit your entry, put the relevant info and a link to your original post in the description/justification box. If you're really ticked off, you can tattle on the other entry too.

Got up this morning and made a batch of my prize-winning cinnamon rolls. They're the ooey-gooey, caramel-saucy, nutty-sugary, super-cinnamony kind.

(You think Cinnabons are good? You haven't bitten into my buns yet, baby!)

When I go home to my mom's house for family gatherings and make them, a dozen big ones can disappear within about 10 minutes. I'm going to have half of one now with a big cup o' tea and then drive over to the Farmer's Market and buy the week's veggies and meat so I can make utterly divine soup, hearty stew, and savory mini-loaves.

I love my life.

Hope everyone's entries are doing well. This week my energies are turned toward the indescribably satisfying art of feeding people good - make that great - food.

Testing what now?

By the way, the link on the third image in your signature is incorrect. You have an extra forward slash at the end that's throwing it off.

llo i was testing the signature stuff. I think i finally got it right. I can't decide which butterfly version I like better. little up in the corner, or across the bottom large. I submitted both, figuring I would delete whichever one got less votes, but they were getting exactly the same amount XD now the larger version is ahead by one..but I am not sure yet. I think I will give it a little longer than delete the one that is getting less votes. though in truth it doesn't really matter. its not like I am suddenly going to be making a push for hotness or anything XD

When you update your signature, you don't need to make a new post to see it. It'll update the signature in every one of your posts, so you just need to find one of your old posts. If it hasn't changed, just give it some time.

I just noticed that your alien link is also wrong. Only your first image link works properly. Click them and see for yourself. It's the forward slash (/) at the end of the other two links that's messing it up.

well, its cause I am bored, in a waiting mode, and learning how to do new things. llo. I have been teaching myself illustrator with this stuff. the problem is certain things are easier to do in illustrator, and others in photoshop. I spent HOURS trying to figure out how to just simply crop something in illustrator. but I never was able to do it. only in photoshop. but its all good. plus its been fun for my son and I to keep us occupied now that summer break has come. n_nI was very proud of him. he made the alien for that tee. not bad for a 13 year old!

Thank you! I agree, I want to wear that one too Must be the Irish in me.

My 3 yr old and I have been 4-leaf-clover hunting lately and I took some pictures of some 3-leaf clovers for that design, so now he keeps running into the house with different clovers and things from the back yard "for the contest!!" in such a serious manner. I don't have the heart to tell him that that part is over. hah

I am sad about pica not getting printed. I really wanted it. but i also really wanted (and bought 3) of youbetchacan. i just wanted them to tie. or to place second and third. I didn't get the other derby ones this weekend. but those two were the one's I was rooting for. but i like this week's even better, Ehalcyon. if it doesn't win, i might cry. My son was looking at it too and wanting it. I taught him when he was little "I am not constrained by gender rules", and even though he is a surly 13 year old, that at least still sticks somewhat. :P Of course, it will help that by the time he is finished growing he will be a ginormous 6'8 red headed monster himself. I don't think people will question his masculinity..at least not to his face. XD he is already about 5'10.

this is my new one. i couldn't fit all the thumbnail linky things in my signature though. it said it exceeded 500 characters. I am not sure how to fix that, or if I can. this one was really fun, and a major learning curve (no pun intended! hahaha) it was about 10 steps in total, and I made it completely myself. no vector packs or whatever those things are. it was hard but fun!

Actually, you may wish to read over the rules again. It wasn't bolded like it was about the green shirt/ink, but they said the design must deal with green conceptually. When the derby was announced, I said that this stipulation would be the one that got most people rejected. It's extremely broad and ambiguous and it really depends on interpretation. That's why I was extremely specific in the description of my entry.

Many of the rejections were probably made because the rejectionator didn't see the theme clearly and the description supplied wasn't very helpful. There are still plenty of unrejected designs that I'd say are rejection worthy, but they must have done some good explaining in their description.

Edit: On the flip side, there are some rejected entries that I think fit the theme fine, but they must not have given a very good description at all.

@no1 - And those who can't teach, teach gym? By the way, I only said what I said because you were being uncharacteristically helpful (as far as I know). Usually you just make hilarious comments and quote stuff out of context.

@SaritaBeth - Appreciated. I really doubt I'm going to win this week. I haven't seen myself in the hotness at all, while I've seen the other fogged entries many times. I think Pica fared better earlier on in the week. But maybe this one will show some steam in the latter half of the week.

I still think your leaf submission has transparency in it. I realize that parts of the black showing through are because of the spaces inbetween, but what I was talking about was where the outline is grey-ish, because the black is being seen through a transparency white-ish layer (i.e. a leaf). If it was just being seen through gaps, the border should be visible as black only, or not at all, rather than coming up in lighter colours as it is in your comp. Unless there is some incredible detail in your leaf and it isn't really a solid colour but very fine line work...


@SkekTek - hehe, rechargeable.
