I don't... really understand why this is fogging? The derby is supposed to be for super realistic artwork that makes it look like a three-dimensional design. Not seeing the realism or the 3D here, just some shading and pencil outlines.

This is wonderful... yet very close to not passing because it does not appear "3D" - However the simplicity is perfect and although it is not something I would personally wear I appreciate the concept, the cuteness and the execution... For that reason alone it has my vote... Nice Job!

But it looks real to the birds! That's what makes this shirt so charming!

To me this reminds me of Le Petite Prince, which if you haven't read you really should. Don't be fooled by the fact that it has pictures, the morals are good for adults.

The little prince explains the world to adults the way a child sees them, and has a much more profound outlook on life than any adult represented.

I think this shirt is fantastic, very nice interpretation!

It is trompe l'oeil in the simplest form. It is a girl drawing on the ground w/chalk but because of the perspective of the drawing it looks like the line is in mid air.

Everyone is getting hung up on realism & 3D but I think they forget that it can be a simple trick of the eye to make you perceive something differently.

I love the story of this shirt. A little girl accomplished this with just white chalk - imagine the artist she'll be when she gets older.
