Wonder where ducky is heading.
Yes it was at threadless for the travel contest but the time has expired and they were notified to take it down from the pile-o-rejects gallery

Ansharp explained to me why it was so blurry. Ta da

Did you modify it at all from threadless? I actually like it better now (maybe it's just me)

YAY SOKOWA!!!!11!!!

You should know that the shirt comp size has changed from 600x600 to 580x580, and that's why your design looks all fuzzy. You ought to edit your first post and add an uncompressed version, so everyone can see your fine detail work.

The rough drawing of the duck gives it nice action... Oh and I won a rubber duck at a carnival we had at work today:

Holy hells, this is fantastic! I don't know if it's for me or for someone else in my family... but it's definitely a got-my-vote with a promise for purchase if printed.

Ugh, why is this design getting SO MANY votes? It's looking like the frontrunner. The art is fine, but concept = MEH and colours are pastel.

Someone explain to me why this is so popular?

It's a different, pleasing style that actually reflects the spirit of the depiction and isn't a cartoon. It actually took some artistic ability.

Re: Off and Away . . .

I mean look at that duckie's face. He's happy! This shirt is about enjoying the adventure of the sea and the ride that is life in general. More importantly, it looks fantastic!

There is no way this should be in the fog now or ever. Good luck!

Wooters vote for this design, please :o)

I like it because of the expression of the duck's face. It's like glee and fright at the same time. I also enjoy the contrasting style of the duck mixed with the style of the waves in the background.

And I'm VERY sad that it fell out of the fog.

reminds me of that cargo ship that lost the rubber ducks and they found them washing up after 11 years or more, Eric Carle even wrote a book about them: http://www.amazon.com/Little-Rubber-Ducks-Eric-Carle/dp/0007202423

I really like this, and I hate baby blue shirts. But it's just so spectacular I would probably wear it anyway. Great job!

Why is this out of the fog? People make SUCH a big deal 'cause ramyb finally did something artistic and are like Oggling my goat? but then a really well done artistic shirt is losing to some anime otters? Le sigh...

I think the problem is that people are voting for Ramy simply to support him in his endeavor to not make the worst shirts ever this week. Combine with his built-in vote base, and the fog is gonna be difficult this week.

There really is no excuse for the otters, tho. Fable's just being a baby because people questioned whether she was in it for the money or the art, and she didn't like the question.

The fuzzy comp image doesn't do this design justice. I hope it manages to squeeze into the top 3 as it has a lot of charm. I'd definitely buy for my kid.
