What makes this awesome is that it has motion, perspective, and great positioning. GMV

Thank you! I was really going for that paisley look.

I really love this design, but I really don't like white shirts. GMV anyway. I'll probably break down and buy my first white shirt if this prints.

Thanks Chris!! I'm glad that everything I was working towards came through! I was trying to keep it simple yet show lots of flow and movement.

Well I certainly thank you if this does print! It's cool to see people change their perspective on a shirt blank simply because the design wins them over more than the dislike for the color it prints on.

Because you got the song stuck in my head, I leave you with it. And my vote, of course!

You walked into the party
Like you were walking onto a yacht
Your hat strategically dipped below one eye
Your scarf it was apricot
You had one eye in the mirror
As you watched yourself gavotte
And all the girls dreamed that they'd be your partner
They'd be your partner, and
You're so vain
You probably think this song is about you
You're so vain
I'll bet you think this song is about you
Don't you? Don't you?

Voted, I like this! Feels kinda retro to me. The quote is awesome but the thumbnail doesn't do the whole design justice IMO.

I think showing the whole bird would have lost the overall detail and impact.

I'm so glad you like this! I do have a plan for this if woot decides to overlook me for an HM. I'm not like some people who do lots of detail changes and simply send in a modified art file without the fans knowing. So I'd like it to print like this, but I have plans for it otherwise.

Aww thank you, mybell! There are others here far more deserving of a print who are always overlooked. As much as I'd like to print again, I can always find 3 people who, I feel, should get the spots before I, and are always passed over by woot votes. I only wish woot could see that as well and print quality, first.

I like the flow this design has from the top right to bottom left. I'm getting a retro vibe on it too ala Partridge Family or the old NBC Peacock. 2 things though I wish the thumb portrayed a little more of the piece and less text, and the blue for the body looks a little off to me. I know I know peacocks are super cobalt but maybye shifting to a blue with a little more green tints to it, it's been my experience that blues in that range have poor color fastness on a non based white shirt (lots of shirt fibralation and a funky problem with the pigment particles as they pass through the screen). Anyways nice piece.

Anyways nice piece.

I actually tried a traditional color set with this and felt there was a disconnect with the green, turquoise and cobalt. I had this need to add purple (possibly as a 4th color) and I spent an hour messing with the hues. I decided on this, because I wanted something that stood out from head to tail, and the combo of purple and turquoise make a big impact with the space it takes up, so the bird, itself, needed to be just as vibrant and strong. It balances the design this way.

As for the thumbnail, I already commented on that above. It would have lost impact if I shrunk it for the thumb.

I'm glad you like it, though.

As others have referenced, the placement really makes this. Solid work, JK.

O M G I'm so sorry!!! I had read Jestik's post in the daily shirt thread, then came over to my thread and saw your post. I also had a call on my cell at the very same time... so I got totally distracted. *facepalm* I thank you too.

In Jaden's defense both your names end with a K so they kinda rhyme I guess!

If they ever do a collab, they can be IndepenjesTik.

yeah I saw 'Vik' and 'tik', and since I regularly mix up things like that when I'm distracted, I made the goof up.

I love this on white! The colors pop so well. I think this is my favorite t-shirt ever from you (though I do like your tea-tree shirt on goodjoe a lot too). The placement, the cute peacock, and the colors all come together to make this a very nice shirt. GMV for sure.

Thanks marzinpanapple! I'm glad so many people are digging the colors.
