thanks for your patience. I'm sure I'll get the hang of this.
Welcome to the derby. You have talent. However, you have broken a couple of the rules and it could potentially get your entry rejected. The most important one is that you're limited to six spot colors, and you have way more than six going on here. I see at least two reds, white, black, pink, orange, blue, yellow, green, three grays, peach, and aqua, and I feel like I may be missing even a couple more.
The other one is that your thumbnail and comp don't quite match. In your thumbnail, the background space is black. Your actual comp shows it being baby blue like the shirt.
Honestly, unless you want the practice, I probably wouldn't bother fixing for this derby. It's pretty rare that an entry submitted at this time would possibly print. Earlier submissions tend to do better. I'm not saying don't do it, just evaluate whether the time spent reducing all those colors to six seems like it would be worth it.
