Nicely done. This is very wearable when I'm not sure many from this derby will be. What color is this on? Asphalt? Heather Gray? I love this on the just plain gray color it's on now, but Woot doesn't offer such a color.

Beautiful work. I just wish I could see more of the Dinos.

My guess, while not the designer, is that this is meant for Heather Gray. Which means it's probably going to look pretty orbs, especially if all that gray peeking through is shirt color.

Great drawing! Your shirt comp could use a major overhaul though :-)

remember to save it as a 600 x 600 .jpg at 100% quality. Otherwise you end up with those nasty artifacts...

I love it. The colour choice is perfect...but there I'm way too pale to wear it. So sad, yet so good.

Re: alphabetasaurus


I like the idea...but don't really like the shirt color. I think it would be nicer on a royal blue or navy. Also, could you post a close up picture of the letters? It almost looks like those are gradients and I'd hate for it to be rejected for that.

Re: alphabetasaurus


As much as I like the illustrations, I do have to agree that on a heathered shirt, grayscale images, especially small ones, will not show up well at all. Gonna have to think about whether to leave my vote on it for that reason.

here are some details of the dinos. There are no gradients, and very little of the shirt color shows through. Very little. Thanks to everyone who has voted thus far. This was unexpected. Thanks for putting me in the fog for the first time ever. So, without further ado, here are some close-ups of the dinos

The dinosaurs on this are beautiful. As for a shirt, they seem too small for the amount of detail in them. I think it would be nice to see them going down the shirt, so they could be bigger, and also for a more interesting composition. As for heather grey, that seems like the wrong color to have this on, since it's not solid.

Re: alphabetasaurus


I agree with much of what has already been said above - the idea and illustration is excellent! I also think that the details would be better served by a larger "letter" against a different color background. The other thing I worry about is that the first & last letters might get lost in the armpit of the shirt. Still, GMV for creativity & execution!

Excellent illustrations but they really do need to be bigger, or in a different configuration. They just get lost in the width of the word.

Re: alphabetasaurus


I love the design, even if the grey is not my favorite colour. But they do kinda show up small when stretched across the chest. How about diagonal? That would give the most room. Just a thought.

I've been trying to work on a variation. But, my computer is a little fritzy for some reason. Hopefully I can get the variation up soon and see which one everyone likes better. I've been meaning to reply to everyone sooner but, again, the computer acting up has been keeping me from this. Thanks again everyone for the votes! and the comments! I'll see what I can do.
Thanks

I'm seriously crazy about this shirt. It's sleek and beautiful and I heart dinosaurs to the point of obsession. Gah WIN.

Re: alphabetasaurus


This is really really great, but I wish it were bigger. Maybe if the letters overlapped a little, you'd have more room to make them larger on the shirt. And is it on heather grey? Bleh! (I'm sorry. I'm being really critical. It's just that I really like the dino letter illustrations so much.)

I've posted a variant version of this shirt. I tried out some of the suggestions. Let me know what you think.

thank you! I appreciate you trying but, it just doesn't look like it's going to happen this time. Thank you everyone for the votes. I'm still shocked that this design made it this far. Hopefully I can do something next time that everyone will find as worthy as this. Thanks again.
