    i absolutely love the first one its great,my only moan is why does the colour look as if it is coming from his butt instead of from the exit point of the shot,but other than that i love it,love the colours and your drawing is great.
    the others are good too but the first one is more to my liking,great work,

    I think the third one is amazing! Not only that I'm also a fans of starwars, but I love the simplicity and the placement are superb. Keep up the great work!

    Acidskull, you need to reduce the number of colours in your images to six or less as per the submission guidelines. Zazzle, for example, uses dye-sublimation printing and can handle thousands of colours but Teefury, Woot! etc. use screenprinting so are much more limited. The advantage, of course, is cost. You can get more than six colours via halftones but that does require some forethought. You can also use the fabric as a 'free' colour; this is most applicable to designs intended to be printed on a black t-shirt (or white, but that isn't a very popular colour, nor does it show most designs to best advantage).

    For example, your sockpuppet fight (which is awesome =) can be reduced to white, grey, flesh, light brown, dark brown and red on black fabric:
