Ok, after a little more research I found Turtle and Elephant mythos...so I'll shaddup.

Flat earth too, but this one is missing the ouroboros I keep finding on the Indian depictions. I like the detail on this one; the texture is nice. I'd buy it even without the "worldsnake".

It's okay... I heard a lot of this when I submitted my first "discworld" entry back in the cross-hatch style derby so I was expecting it this time around as well...

but The world-turtle as well as the elephants and a flat planet are all mythoses (sp?) that date back quite a long time before Sir Terry even sat down to write The Carpet People...

that being said, I'm a big fan of his work and own every book hes ever written, many in first editions :D

"See the Turtle of enormous girth!
On his shell he holds the earth.
His thought is slow but always kind;
He holds us all within his mind.
On his back all vows are made;
He sees the truth but mayn't aid.
He loves the land and loves the sea,
And even loves a child like me."
-Stephen King

Love the design!

Fantastic color choice, and I'm in awe of how you really worked the textures.

I've read numerous Pratchett novels and am currently reading "The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents."
I'd gladly shell out $10 for one of these.

I would love to wear this while reading Small Gods.

Doe not call up Any that you cannot put downe; by the which I mean, Any that can in turn call up somewhat against you, whereby your powerfullest Devices may not be of use. Ask of the Lesser, lest the Greater shall not wish to Answer, and shall commande more than you.

Reminds me of the old Japanese folk story named "Urashima Taro" and the anime Urusei Yatsura 2

Wow. That is the exact turtle used.
If you overlay it onto the shirt, it's an exact match which means this design is a trace of a copyrighted photo. And for woot, that's a big no-no.

And Now it's REJECTED! Why couldn't you draw your own turtle? They really aren't that difficult. This probably would have printed. You were home free! This sucks!

Damn... I didn't want any shirt in this derby as much as this one.

Do a redraw and submit it in another derby.
