I like how the reflection of the sailboat creates the illusion of tears. Very beautiful.

The water looks so good. And I love the color combination of the yellow and blue on the brown.

Wow, this one is AWESOME! The thumbnail doesn't really do this one justice, but it looks like it's getting noticed nonetheless. Nice!

Love it, I hope it gets printed. Upclose its well done and from afar it looks different, but also well done, its two two two shirts in one.

This is absolutely beautiful. I grew up near the beach and this expresses my desire to be back there more than anything I've ever seen. Gorgeous, brilliant piece of work. Thank you!

I hate to be the negative Nancy here, but I really don't like this. From a distance it is a floating head. Up close is is too awkward and rough to depict a head, or if it is supposed to be the view from a cave or some natural rock formation thing, then those flowers are MASSIVE and disproportionate. You would have to be looking out of a very small hole in a rock/cave which is very claustrophobic and scary.

I'm totally not trying to dissuade votes but just explain my personal bewilderment. I want to like this, probably because everyone else seems too, but I guess I am too picky.

I really like this design and how you used the boat as the eye. Very romantic looking and I am a romantic so you definitely got my vote here.

I think the flowers are growing over the opening that you're supposed to be looking through, thus they would be really close to the viewer which would make them look big.

My problem with it is the lumpiness of the outline. I realize it's meant to look rocky but when you see it as the out line of a woman's face, it kinda looks like she has a rough complexion.

I personally wouldn't wear this... just something of a combination of the colors and style aren't really "me."

HOWEVER, that said, I think it's an awesome design. And for people who can do this look, I hope it does well. I really like how you pulled everything together, with the ship and the flowery hair. Nice job ^_^

I would really like this on a different background/t-shirt color. I'd buy 3!! I really like this.

How is this not climbing up into The Fog!?!? This design is phenominal, I'm gonna be upset if it doesn't make the cut, it's simply too good.

Hopefully it'll have a life somewhere else.

Woot let it go unappreciated. Robert passed it over for a best loser. I hope a little blog love will make up for it.
