That's some dynamic placement of the foreground and background elements. The floor for this piece better be HM at the very least. I don't think u need me to tell u what the ceiling should be. :D Nice work man

I agree with you... maybe you should use a Jedi mind trick on everyone. ((("This is the shirt that you're looking for.")))

Amazing design. The only problem I'm having with it is how hard it looks like it'll be to read the lettering for the gitd design >.< Specifically the word Dark. That might just be me though.

I thought the same thing originally but my husband pointed out that the design will be much larger on the shirt than this pic. So I think it will be easy to read.

I thought about that too. My problem came at the idea of people viewing it from a distance. The 'light' design would be very clear and obvious from a distance (very wearable too!). The 'dark' version, not so much.

I hear that they up'd the limit to 15... Why not 15?

I understand your concern, but the barely legible lettering was actually intentional. I wanted it distressed(plus I wasn't sure about copyright issues), but still legible. I feel like that I met my goal with the Death Star being somewhat destroyed/distressed in the illustration, yet you were still able to read the word "Dark". Seriously, thank you for the feed back, this is a tough competition and you have to make decisions and go with it.

Ah kay, I see where you're coming from now. It's so difficult to get a design rolling once you've had to resub it from the rejectionator, why not do what you can to keep it from being rejected in the first place by using a method so relatively minor? Definitely give you props for that.

I probably still won't be a buyer, but I'll be really happy in voters' tastes if this design wins. Many props on the cleverness of the design and the detail of the artwork.
