Absolutely fantastic on purple! :D

Very fun! Gray is still my favorite to contrast the "monotonous" with "the monstrous" (great description!).

really really fun monster and idea here, I'd like to see the window go down a tad bit more or be a little bigger, but overall fun perspective and great contrast. Nice work man, can't wait to see more of your stuff on here!

Is the denim blue an option?

ayearinreview
ayearinreview profile pic Artist

Thanks everyone!

DaNextGrate: I've displayed Blue, Grey, and Purple variations. But I'm sure there's more, it's a pretty adaptable design. I think the main three shown in the presentation work best, though.

PieceTree

This is absolutely excellent. I like this a lot. The design and the creativity is fantastic. I want to buy this. I also like the purple shirt for this design. Makes it really pop! $5

DaNextGrate

Definitely agree that one of the three colors shown will work just fine.

Keep up the good work.

It's just so cool. First time I want to wear a purple shirt ;)

I nearly missed this. I love this with a fiery passion. So many solid designs coming out at the moment. $5 on the assumption they won't print on blue. Purple or the other colour I have no word for (Grayish lilac ? ) please.

PRINT $5

wow! I really thought this score would be much higher! it's also weird that you ended up with over 300 more votes then most of the designs finishing today.

ayearinreview
ayearinreview profile pic Artist

I'm quite surprised, given the massive amount of positive feedback from the community, as well as the large number of votes, that it scored so much lower than my first design, which to me, is far inferior. Hmm, I guess you gotta roll with the punches. Can't help but be slightly disappointed though.

Either way, I want to thank the huge amount of people who gave me positive feedback, as well as those who helped me with the crit. Seriously, thanks for your support! In the end, I guess time will tell.

Unbelievably.

supertrooper74
supertrooper74 profile pic Alumni

Something is definitely amiss in threadless world. Subs that are amazing (like this one) get 1000 votes and 100 comments yet score low. Subs that are just ok get 1000 votes and 10 comments, and score ridiculously high.

And everyone that gets about 500 votes seem to be correct.

HorsefaceDee

WHAT???...UNDERSCORED...boooooo...hisssssss...

ayearinreview

Well, let's hope they get to the bottom of things. I'm not one to complain about vote scores, but the fact that this scored lower than my ole' 'Graveful Dead' kind of confuses me.

This is not a 2.18 kind of shirt....

Man, i am NOT happy with how things are turning out right now. Something is amis around here, and it's getting me plenty steamed. Great design man, sorry about the low low looooooow score.

ayearinreview
ayearinreview profile pic Artist

No worries. I trust that if anything is wrong, that it'll be cleared up. If this is the score that I rightfully got, than so be it, I guess. It's disappointing, but not discouraging.

Pure class, ayearinreview. It looks great on the tee, bytheway. :)

agrimony

mmm double u tee eff.

i say alumni pick for this! those 300 extra downvotes should really make this stand out if u take the alumni votes into account.

polynothing
polynothing profile pic Alumni

This shoulda recieved a mid to high 3, wtf???

ayearinreview
ayearinreview profile pic Artist

Is that what happened, agrimony? The internet cafe' users down-voted the other designs in the running? I guess there's no way to be sure yet. Regardless, it's very encouraging (and comforting) to have you guys saying that this deserved better. I really appreciate that!

agrimony
agrimony profile pic Alumni

true.. i honestly cant confirm. but it seems that way at best. theres been a few subs with ultra high vote counts and queer scores. i dont see much other explanations =/

staffell
staffell profile pic Alumni

jesus! this is the first time i've seen this, i didn't think the score was that low when you were talking about it.

ayearinreview

Chris Rowson
Chris Rowson profile pic Alumni

WTF?? That score seems plain wrong it should have been much higher! If threadless print this though, shit loads of people will buy it.

digsy
digsy profile pic Alumni

woah, unbelievably underscored! i had this pegged as a 2.9 absolute minimum, more than likely a 3.2
2.18 is ridiculous, I don't get how that happened.
maybe if enough of us complain about it and demand it's print in here, threadless will get the point.

so boo hiss to everyone who scored this anything less than a 4 and threadless, if you're reading this...
PRINT!!!!!

ayearinreview
ayearinreview profile pic Artist

Ha, thanks Digsy! If it's meant to get printed, then hopefully it will. If not, then it's at least good to know that so many people supported this design despite the odd vote turnout.

HorsefaceDee

There seems to be a familiar tune in the air these days ... however, scores aren't everything. Underscored or not, it's great encouragement to have you guys voicing your opinion! Thanks!

wwwooooooo!! yay! did anyone comment on the nonsense votes? like e.g. who was behind the downvoting?

ayearinreview
ayearinreview profile pic Artist

Well, holy poop. You gotta hand it to the staff, right? Pretty impressive that not only did they get to the bottom of things regarding the ultra-high voting numbers, but they rectified all the wrong that was seemingly done amongst the other subs in the running. I dropped from 960 odd votes to 616 ... that's a lot of mischievous voting. I'm just glad the community was so outspoken about defending mine and the few other affected subbers' designs, and supporting it, regardless of it's score. Either way, it sure is nice to see a score like that. My best one yet! Big props to the staff, and an equal big props to the community!

Someone needs to make a "I survived June '09" badge, hand them out to the other subbers, haha.

Chris Rowson
Chris Rowson profile pic Alumni

I'm really glad this has gone up to what it should be, but it's just a shame that you and many other good designers had to put up with it! :(

Props to the threadless staff for sorting this out though.

oh hell's yeah, that's more like the score this thing deserved! Hmm, i wonder if love monster was telling the truth about not down-voting other people's designs now?

ayearinreview
ayearinreview profile pic Artist

Thanks FA! I think it turned out that the same internet cafe' related IP addresses were also responsible for the onslaught of down-voting on the various other designs in the running at the time. Not sure. Point is - crisis averted!

Thank you everyone! When it comes down to it, I couldn't have done it without you! It would have just remained some silly little illustration on my hard drive ... but now, it's on a freakin' T-Shirt. Still trying to wrap my mind around it.

Again, thank you to the people from the crit, the people who voted, and everyone else who offered love and support!
