I notice the cutie mark went from a slash (fitting for rainbow slash) to a generic paw bear. Was the slash to tricky to figure out?
Also, comments on the Friendship is Mauling vs Mauling is Magic?

Looks pretty cool. I assume you checked it didn't violate any copyright, although I guess parody doesn't. Nice to see a new shirt design!

I'll see if I can rustle up the funds for a pre-order. That's a pretty rad shirt.

I'm going to have to skip this one. It doesn't look like it would suit me and no one I know would get the joke anyway - I had a hard enough time with PA's hippo T-shirt. Sorry. :(

If I can persuade someone to birthday this for me, I am totally getting it. I'm sure I know people I can prod into buying it for me!

While its awesome that you guys are using some of my art on a shirt, I can't lie it does grind my gears that your using a black outline with the Mlp:fim art style. I know its due to the limited number of colers on the shirt and that's just the compromise you decsided on but black outlining really is anathema to that style and i would have much rather seen the shading droped in favour of the colered lining as to me it is fare less jarring compromise to the overall aesthetic Image

In the end though it is LRR's shirt and thier call I just wanted my opinion on the matter known.

Just to comment on that, we struggled to reduce the number of colours on the shirt to make it as cheap as possible (for the uninformed: more colours means more screens, and costs us more money) and we decided on the black outline.

I know the show uses a darker blue outline, and wanted to maintain the integrity of the art as much as possible, but we prefer using that blue to shade the background bodyparts.

Regardless, we won't be changing the design now as people have already ordered the shirt based on the current design.

(The slash was changed to a paw because it wouldn't read as well at size on a shirt)

for the record I have no problem with the paw, that works great. It's just to me the colered lines are an ablostly integral part of that art style vastly more important than the shading but i'm just repeting myself at this point, I've said peice and we'll leave it at that.

I wasn't responding to refute you, we've already discussed it. I just wanted others to know why we made those choices.

Unrelated: we'd planned to do a MLB shirt while shooting the video, so you actually doin the art without us even asking was awesome. Thanks for letting us use it!

I'm conflicted. I'm not a huge enough fan of MLP to wear a shirt, and I don't have any brony friends nearby that I could annoy/entertain with it. However, this shirt is all kinds of awesome...

yes , and just to be clear i'm not mad at you guys or anything I'm just realy a prefectionest when it comes to my own work and seeing it as "not right" is the visual equivalent of chewing on tinfoil for me. I know you past the point of no retrun on this batch , but if it happens to go well enough for a second run please please consider changing the lines.

So close, and yet so far.

If it had been "My Little Ursine", I'd have bought it instantly. Unfortunately, for some possibly inexplicable reason, the single syllable just... I dunno... I almost wanna say it pisses me off.

It's like when someone is singing an old, well known song and they just keep getting the lyrics wrong by one word? Like that scene in Eagle Vs Shark (for all twelve of you who have seen that film) where Lily is singing David Bowie's "Let's Dance", and she keeps saying "put on your red shoes and do the blues"?

You can't really be genuinely pissed off, it's just a goddamn song, but OH MY FUCKING GOD IT'S "DANCE THE BLUES", GRRRAAAAGGGHHH! and you kinda wanna just punch something every time they get it wrong.

Soooo... yeah. I can't sing "My Little Bear" to the MLP theme song without leaving a syllable out. And that irks me?

I apologize for the last line. The fact that I wrote this is clear proof that I'm not in my right mind at this moment. Also, now the theme is stuck in my head, and I already have a headache...

On second thought, I'm not sorry at all. 8)
