    When you're submitting to Threadless you have to know that it's astronomically improbable that the design will become "part of a series".

    Thank you, but I wasn't thinking exclusively for Threadless.

    Its fairly natural to assume you are talking about Threadless if you're submitting it for critique in the Threadless forum.

    I quite like the naive child style as an image but I'm not sure how well it works on the garment as it stands. The rectangular background can't help but make a frame to the design and on a t-shirt it just looks plonked on and doesn't integrate very well. The idea is quite sweet but I can't imagine it on Threadless. Like Mike said, you're better off trying this out on Redbubble or Society 6.

    If you are thinking of submitting to Threadless then its always a good idea to see what you're up against by taking a look around the shop and seeing what has printed and what sells.

  • I find voting a slog already and having to justify my ones would discourage me even more. The thing is you just need to sub your work and move on, almost forget about it, try not to have expectations of a score. This is easier said than done and I'll be the first to admit to being disappointed sometimes when I see my scores.

    But when it gets down to it, you can't control it or change it so you might as well accept it. There are always down voters, its sad but some people are dicks, thats just the way of things.

    Personally I would have given this a 2 or a 3. I prefer the original sketch, the actual sub looks a little bit clip arty. In terms of the idea I think its been done many times before. The good news is that you can clearly draw. You just need to keep moving on and improving.

  • Great choice, congratulations! Is there something in the water in Indonesia? Such incredible talent seems to come out of there.

  • Hi Anastasia, welcome! I think a lot of people start out as lurkers and then mutate into designers. Fingers crossed on your first sub.

    Wharton, are you sure people don't want wear "just nice pictures"? I personally prefer such to puns. But, saoirsesushi, Wharton is still right - if you are submitting here, you have to follow the site's sub-culture. I think it wouldn't be the worst idea trying to relate your painting to Wes Anderson's animated film "Fantastic Mr Fox":

    Like I said, I like the image but you have to understand the context in which it'll be judged. Its like taking a t-shirt design and trying to put it in the National gallery, its not the right place for it. If you want something to be successful you have to understand the arena into which its going into. I think your illustrations have the same issue. They're nice but they're not quite ready for Threadless.
