scored them all! awesome designs everyone!

Now, I'll kick your asses, this is war

NEXT ROUND: Art mash-up

"mash-up" noun informal

"a mixture or fusion of disparate elements"

Revamp your favorite sculpture, painting, etc with a touch of weirdness

I think it's fun!

Scored 'em all. It looks like everyone got theirs in, that's awesome. Hopefully I make it to the next round.

posted a blog earlier about art and just random work without it having it to be funny or have a concept, maybe we can do that for round 2?

Time for me to bring this blog down. I might not even make it into the next round and I'm all for randomness as I did one myself the first round but I honestly don't see how random works as a theme for Threadwars. Threadwars to me has always been something that has stricter themes that forced us to work with tighter ideas and so forth. I think that makes it more difficult. "Do what you want" rounds I feel are devalued to me honestly. I want something like "Shakespeare" and seeing 32 people doing their take on a single narrowed field. That is exciting to me.

But that's just my opinion and the powers that be will make the decide.. and even if I don't win we all really know who the real winner is.... Dracula.

+1. community should pick the theme since we didn't get to pick the theme for round 1, and yes, something a little more strict.

What happens if we comment on our designs??
...cant we say 'thanks' to those who commented? :]

Commenting on your own design used to bump it in the blogs which would be self-promotion ....but that's not the case anymore so.....I dunno....

Exactly, old thing from an old era, still I like that as a rule still, sometimes you a debate in a sub can appear and then, attention and then the no promotion rule goes to the can. It's not the case but better if we just eliminate the commenting, even the thanks.

Also, people is not going to hate you or get offended if you don't say thanks once.

Idk what it hurts. It seems like it could be a little more about popularity in the voting sometimes as it is. ..but no big deal. I can wait, just feels rude. :p

Nobody goes back to a sub to see if the designer said thanks. Don't worry about it.

I think the round two theme suggestion was misinterpreted as random.. The other blog Alex was talking about was about designs without cute jokes or puns. ..it can still be narrowed down further, but I like the idea of whoever makes to the next round, makes 32 subs that are just awesome for the sake of being awesome.

so your most awesomely original non-funny/punny ever?

:D this and what mechanicalrobotpower said. I'm all for really really tight rules, cause I also think it makes this more fun. Also I think that dropping out all normal threadless things like puns and cute jokes is making it harder = more fun.

I just have no idea how bunnies would be none cute funny, but I might not have to worry about it :) Will have to wait, hope and see if I get to round 2

alexmdc
alexmdc profile pic Alumni

well pop culture a pun etc can also be "original"

I'm just talking more about stand alone art that doesnt need a theme or back up story to explain what's going on, just something really cool, but I see the point of being a bit too open.

But then again in the earlier rounds I always like when it's a bit open so we dont have 32 shirts with a clown on it or somehting you know.

with that being said you guys wanna do clowns as the theme? haha jk jk

Haragos

Do whatever theme you guys feel is best. I just had to give my opinion and stir up the pot because I'm an Agent of Chaos!

This and maybe just include a fixed element to make everyone happy, like "your design must include a banana, a detailed rocket engine, a boob… whatever
