Sorry, not to stir the pot, but since when does someone on a message board need to explain why he or she doesn't like something to prevent their post from being deleted?
If you're going to delete posts that are three words and don't explain why someone DISLIKES a shirt, then you should be fair and delete the three word posts that are something like, "Yes, love it!!!", since they don't accurately explain why that person does like the shirt.
Of course, that will never happen ... have to keep the sheep happy.
Come on, since you're making haters on the shirts explain their actions, then you have to be fair and make people who like shirts to do the same. I mean, God forbid someone not like a shirt you're selling.
Anyways, Tgentry, I'm normally a fan of your designs. I own Watch It Grow and love it, Eating Healthy is a great shirt that I also own ... I even use the artwork as my desktop background. A few weeks ago I was hoping the Prospector placed, sadly it didn't, I was truly disappointed.
This shirt however simply does nothing for me. I'd have to explain it to people, and even beyond that, it's not as eye catching as your other designs. It comes across as very dull and bland. I don't think every shirt needs to look like Paradisea, but I like my shirts to pop a little bit when I wear them.
I don't want this to come across as rude, if it does I apologize, but I kinda think that your reputation from past designs fuel people to vote for alot of your shirts, whether they truly like them or not. I think this is a perfect case of that.
If I submitted this design ( and I'm not remotely close to your level of skill and talent ) it would have been lost in the 40's somewhere. Yet, you submit it and it places 2nd.
Maybe that's just me overthinking things though, but truly, I think there were better designs that got overlooked.
Please don't think I'm hating on you Tgentry, I truly think you're immensely talented and I normally love your designs, this one just isn't my cup of tea.
