"Topiary Turtle T.ree"

A triple threat of awesome. There's the turtle, the topiary, and the t.ree! They all start with the Letter T.

I love the concept but it's a little too big on the shirt for my tastes. Really well done though!

Oh wow, so neat! I think it would be more wearable if it were a smaller design, but I love the turtles

Hmm, well I think the design is only 12.5 inches across and about 14.9 inches tall in the actual file. The girl shirt tends to be shrunk to be smaller then that. =D

I'm glad you like the idea. This one was tons of fun for only being 3 colors.

Nice I was thinking about doing a bush like this outside my house... but I would much rather say been there done that got the t0-shirt. lol

Edison Plays Dirty STAFF: Well, I tried. Looks like the image won't stay until you buy something. Still, please don't post your derby entry in the body of posts.

Excellent texture on your OH GOD, THEY'RE WATCHING ME. I've had a bit of experience with that lately and this is really nice.

Lordy they're so cuuute! I like the little booty sticking out there on the left. Nothing's as cute as a turtle booty. :D +1! Will be rooting for you!

I love it! I was actually thinking about how cool a turtle tree would be to do (Unforunately I kept getting hung up on doing the little guys as apples with their little arms and legs sticking out at various stages of growth. I like your idea much better.)

Thanks, I ended up doing it all in Photoshop with the pencil tool just drawing in scribbles and erasing pieces over and over again until I liked what I had. It is really tough to get that leafy texture though. =/

This is one of your best, Sprinkle. Turtle designs are ridiculously overdone, and almost never this well. It's nice to see someone do something fresh and quite wearable with them.

I love all your shirts. I hope this one gets printed. I was sad when the Sirius shirt didn't.

Now that you mention it, all the designs on my shirts (I'm a girl) look smaller scale-wise than they do on the site or on mens' shirts. I wonder why that is?

The girl shirts are smaller in size then the guy shirts so woot shrinks the design down to fit. Sometimes depending on the size of the design/screen the kid shirts have an even smaller version of the design.

This is, in my opinion, the best of the turtle designs. It's creative and doesn't lean on a pop culture reference. Good job!

Re: Topiary Turtle Tree


Besides being a nifty design, I like how it looks huge on the shirt. I hope it's like that on all men's sizes. Far too many print t-shirts use the same size design for all sizes, which makes it look huge on small sizes and tiny on big ones.
