I have a new T-shirt design up for voting at Splitreason. This one started out as a simple idea and turned into something a little more complex. When my designs go up for voting I always get the inevitable complaints (you just can't make everybody happy) but I sort of feel like I'm throwing myself to the wolves with this one. The reason being that I had to come up with rules for what I should and shouldn't include as part of Mario's wardrobe. I wanted to include as many of his power-ups as possible, but the main rule I had to follow was that I couldn't include things that actually transform Mario himself rather that just changing his wardrobe, like the Boo mushroom from Mario Galaxy that turns him into a ghost. So I've mentally prepared myself for the barage of "OMG WHY DIDNT U INCLUDE THIS 1 ON THERE U R DUM." I don't mind constructive critisicm, but sometimes it feels like people complain just to do it. If only they knew how much thought I actually put into these!
You can vote here.
And thanks to all the people who do vote, and offer well thought out comments.
UPDATE: Wow, it has been brought to my attention that this design is blowing up huge, actually reaching the #3 spot on Digg this morning in all categories! Thanks so much to everybody for your interest, and don't forget to vote! Also I've read all the comments requesting a poster/print and I will pass the sentiment on to Splitreason. They do offer some prints of my work, and as I have officialy submitted this to them it is more in their hands than mine at this point, but I will surely talk to them about it.
