Thanks for the comments guys. Glad you like it.
I was going back and forth between the army men fighting a teddy bear or a barrel o' monkeys. I chose the bear because of it's innocence and for it's scale.

The army men are so well done!! I have tried to draw them (unsucessfully of course) but yours are perfect.
Not a fan of the bear but still a nice shirt! +1 from me.

Normally I would object to having a teddy bear on my shirt, but I'll gladly make an exception here. Great work, got my vote.

Dixon, I like the idea, but from experience, black won't show up on navy. Navy is just too dark and you'll lose the halftone detail behind the bear, the shadows and the floor grooves. Also not a fan of the squared off corner but had the issue with the black not been such a problem for the piece, I probably still would have voted. From a creative standpoint, I just wanted you to see my perspective.

I like this idea a lot. It's funny and simple with good colors. Then again, I do have a soft spot for mini plastic soldiers. He he.
Good luck!

It's like a Toy Story thing. There's a mini world of toys going on around beneath you when you're not looking.

I especially like the one army man near the bears foot; he kinda looks like he's working on a car or somthing. Great job.

If instead of a Teddy Bear there was a housecat, this shirt would be PERFECT.

Thanks for all the support guys!

I never expected this to do so well. My entries are always in the middle of the pack.

Like the guy with the firefl.y design, I haven't seen it myself so I can't really comment on how dark the navy is. But i tried to keep the black from any essential aspect of the design. So even if the black doesn't show well it won't kill it. Thanks though!

I'm glad it's just "almost" too cute! Thanks

Great Idea! Where were you when I was working on it?! I went back and forth on the teddy bear. I almost scrapped it completely. If I'd thought of a cat it probably would've ended up on the shirt instead of the bear. But alas...

That's a risk when teddy bears are concerned. Sorry. I'll make a super manly design next time to compensate.

I'd love to see a breakdown of how many men vs. how many women buy each design. Or at least how many men's and women's sizes are sold.

I'm diggin' the bear kickin' ass. The army dude under the bears butt is cool.

I like this sirt a lot but the brown back wall makes it looks wrong when viewed on the actual shirt. Without that I'd probably get 2.
