My first submission to Threadless :) It's a slightly melancholy octopus enjoying the last sunny days of autumn before winter comes. No special inks or print methods required......

The.Hush.Kat

I would get the alternate coloring!

cateditor

I'd get the lovely blue tree, no doubt. It's darling! Perfect whimsical tree.

thanks so much for all the support :) I tried without the halftones, but everything seemed too flat without them. I thought they might add to the depth a little......

I never expected so many nice comments!! :D

Coffeemunkii

Sweet, whimsical, and fun! It's so completely charming!

thanks for all the comments :D beam beam
igo2cairo - I LOVE your designs!!!! Especially the chameleon trees!!!! that needs to be reprinted!!!

bcrider

I actually think the halftones are simple-looking enough not to compete with your whimsical style; I prefer the "green" as opposed to the "blue" coloring, and I could see this on a brown tee as well. My only complaint is extremely minor, and that's the fact that I think I should be able to see his other two tentacles behind him (like, under the swing). This isn't so necessary, though, and I'd still buy one for my kids. :)

thanks for all the comments :) Yeah I did a version with all the tentacles, and my little focus group thought it made it too busy..... good comment though :D

YoungRL

I know you replied to bcrider about the tentacles but I'd just like to second that; it's the only thing that bugged me a little about the design. I really love it though, and personally I like the white better than the blue as well :D

I'll certainly consider that for a future version, although I'm kinda really hopin' that this one will go through as is :P

thanks guys :D I'm really surprised the dark blue is getting so much love.... I was going to go with that as the main option, but then when I hit on the cream for me that felt like an instant winner. Shows what I know, eh? :D

Libster

I like the blue tree too. :)

imsochady

Excellent first sub! Very neat style, and the characters are very charming. Many luck to this and your future submissions! :)

Alternate Coloring! 5!

I keep coming back in here to peek and the alternate version is growing on me quite a bit. :)

will - it - break - 900 - or --- NOT ----- ARRGHG

celandinestern

neither - from what I understand, they pick you or they don't. Votes and stuff are just one of the indicators.

Thanks :) they will let me know during the next three months whether it gets printed or not - or at least that's the way I understand it. There is no fixed number you have to get - the voting is just a general indication of how much people dig your design, but Threadless can decide to print any shirt it likes, regardless of score. The lowest-scoring one I saw printed had a score of only 2.15. But lots score higher and don't get selected.

Threadless loves octopi. :)
