Thank you very much! This was the first design I did that used up so much space (although, I must admit, my actual comp is only 12x16, so sorry if that's a little misleading! >_<; ). And even though it was a lot of work with the cross-hatching and such, I think it's one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had with woot designs so far.

There's a lot of very impressive stuff here, but I personally find that jarring.
Hah, well, I don't know if I should take that as a compliment or if I should be slightly offended. Either way, I kinda chuckled when I read your comment. I don't know what kind of person you took me as with my previous designs, but I was always designing things that I liked and would have worn myself, and I know I'm never going to stop, whether I get printed or not. Still, I find it a little amusing that I surprised you with this one - gotcha! ;]
And about the halftones, you may be right, but I still think they have a really nice way of helping the sky fade out in a way that I don't think would have worked out the same way if I had cross-hatched it out as well. Hm. Thanks for your opinion, nonetheless.
