Threadless Submission: First Attempt

I've hesitated to try this because I'm fairly reactionary to how well my art is received. I need to learn to use failure as a motivation or push to do better. I've recently submitted this design to Threadless and I'd appreciate your vote. You have to set up an account in order to vote, but its really only a few steps and not much information. I'd consider it a favor. You can vote.see my design HERE.

I like it, and, as much as a I like words, I side with those who think it would be better (as a shirt) without words. As just art, I love it as is. And, definitely knives. I can't believe how some commenters don't/didn't understand that that was a huge part of what makes it great.

yea, I used the words as a sort of homage to old fighting video games, or a boxing bout poster etc. I also worried the characters would be read as just hairy beasts and not their exact cryptozoology name. Speaking of Bigfoot, this was brought to my attention today by Tyler T-Roll

just an update, my designed scored a 2.61% out of 5, and 1,139 people voted. I was kinda bummed about such a low score, but come to find out I guess thats a good score, and Threadless wants me to hold off on submitted my design elsewhere. They contacted me today to say they are pulling it into a pool of top scoring designs for their final voting of which design to print. I'll keep you all updated, if you're interested.

I'm pumped it's doing so well! Did they already get some models to put on a shirt, or is that just a tricky photoshop job? I liked reading the comments...haha. Some chick suggested that yeti be throwing snowballs and bigfoot be blocking them with his feet instead of the knives...haha.

Ok... I just read a little further and you've already addressed the obviousers.
