This is my latest sub. It is for the "Battles" competition that J-ray set up. My theme was "Dark Side of the Fairy Tale" and i based my design on the fairy tale the 12 Brothers. It is a great story for anyone who hasn't hear of it. I hope you enjoy my interpretation!

I really like this. The face and hands are a little weird for me, though- maybe they could both be outlined in the same color?

ps- the shape this design creates is gorgeous.

Beautiful! Great to see this one submitted at last!

This is quite incredible. You did an amazing job of evoking the folksy yet dark aspect of the brothers Grimm.

I love how much detail you put into this, and the varying level of detail on the different elements that make them either pop or fade into the background.

Um... I'm going to start crying at the ridiculousness of this score. Is everybody stupid??

I like this, but I suspect that the face dropped the score a lot. It just doesn't fit.

Everything else is nice though.

I suspect that people's stupidity dropped the score a lot. I will not build a bridge... I will NOT get over it!

That's cool V&V - I think Threadless needs to take some measures to stop this kind of thing happening - too many good designs getting low scores, because of idiots who score a 0 without even thinking.

Hey Jstump- I'd love to trade some prints, if you're interested in any of my crap.
Email is in my profile.

thanks V and 13! it's too bad if the face of the girl could ruin the whole thing. i don't understand it but whatever. obviously i'm missing something?!?

very unjust score, but great design nonetheless.

vixyish

What. The. Hell.

I seem to remember reading in one of the blogs somewhere that Threadless staff will sometimes print a design that they like a lot anyway, even if it got a low score. I sincerely hope they like this one enough to do that, because... seriously, WTF? I thought this one would break three.
