I'm generally not a fan of the white shirts, but this design is absolutely goregous, and I really couldn't see it working on any other color. Congradulations on another win - and another beautiful shirt - Patrick!

I was so excited for this one :D I'll most likely end up buying all of the winners of this derby. hahaha

Sweet! Done! Bought!

Congratulations on this amazing print. Great job. I really liked this Derby

For only six colors allowed, this is incredible.

Each Koi looks like it was individually brushed, and the overlap effect where two colors blend, adds to the water color effect of the design.

All in all, a prime example of what I would expect the top finisher of this derby to look like.

Congrats Patrickspens!

I know koi are usually done to death, but I enjoyed the "flow" of this piece. In fact, I voted for it Congrats on the win!

LOL perhaps so, but the artwork reminded me of this guy who makes realistic-looking koi/goldfish: Riusuke Fu[]kahori


*edit: Really? I had to put something it to keep it from thinking his name was a curse.

Nice... very calming. Reminds me of this -- a Japanese artist who paints goldfish layer by layer in 3D using acrylic and resin.

edit: Guess JadenKale beat me to it
Also, have to change "goodnight, everybody!" in that URL with f-u-k -- darn you, filters...

I wonder if I'm the only one who was compelled to do a syllable count on the shirt's color to verify it as a Haiku.

Got it before you XD

and the system thinks his name is a curse, so no one will be able to go to that link (it changes it within the url).

This design is gorgeous! Seriously wishing I could rock the white tee right now.

So many amazing designs this derby, but most were on the thin, see-through white tees... bah. Even with a tan bra they're damn near impossible to wear without feeling self-conscious to some degree. :P

What the french, toast?

Touché! That bandeau is super cute, and would definitely make a few things hiding in the back of my closet wearable again.

Most of the time when I mention Koi most people have absolutely no idea what I'm talking about. Now I know I'm not the only one who knows what Koi are.

I recommend it! I have that bandeau in a couple of colors and love it. I think it's, both, functional & fashionable

Not to be a downer, but just some FYI. Koi paintings in Chinese culture typically depict 9 Koi fish. Just like there are usually 8 horses. Not sure why though

When I saw this in the derby, I knew I had to buy it, which is why I continuously refreshed my window until the new shirt was posted. I love watercolors, I love koi, and I love bright colors that make you feel happy. This shirt combines all of those favorites. I'm also lacking on white shirts. There are rarely any white shirts on woot, nevertheless a greatly designed one, so I had to jump on this immediately. Now I shall sit here and wait for this wonderful shirt to arrive.

$12?! Really? I hope this is a one time "really cool' shirt price, if not this college student can no longer afford. -_____-

Great design but WHY choose the t-shirt color white for gods sake? It's just a horrid combination of colors now....if it was on tan or light blue it would have been fn' awesome!

Really? Dark colored shirts with stretched out, peeling, torn apart white under base prints seem way trashier to me.

When my first reaction upon seeing the shirt is "holy crap, that's beautiful," I know I have to buy it. It also lit a fire under my butt to grab another woot shirt I've been eyeing.

Great design, and even though it's on white, I know I'll love it.

Curses you! Patrickspens and Woot! combining your devious powers yet again... For I am only a humble shirt consumer with discriminating tastes... and fall easily victim to your insidious excellence. Woe, unto thee, and me, for I have not the $13.12 at my disposal and thus will forever mourn the opportunity lost in acquiering this most superior shirt for my collection!
