Re: Fish And Whale

Nicely done tesselation, I especially like the shape and design of that whale.

I think they lose some of their impact by being so small on the shirt and repeated in such a large patch, it would be nicer if there were, say, half as many objects but twice as large so they are easier to see. Tesselations are so easily recognizeable thanks to Escher that it would be clear that's what it is, I think.

Those black fish also really fade into the black shirt. Perhaps that is by design, after all many of escher's tesselations started on white and ended black, but for a shirt I would almost pick a third color to be the background and keep the fish black (or make the fish a color and the shirt black). My perception might just be because of the small size of each object though on the shirt comp not showing detail

Thank you so much for the input, yea I agreed with the size issue. Just revise it and resub the bigger version.
