So I've been lurking a while here, but I finally got a digital camera and plan to post all my projects from the last little while.
I finished this around January of this year; after putting together the design it took me a couple weeks of an hour here and there after classes to complete. I've worn it a few times, and it sort of feels like it needs something else but I can't decide if I want to add a little something more to it- thoughts?
the pictures are quasi-crappy as my camera is lmited but I think you get the idea:

Wow! That's really awesome!  Grin

I myself would add a little "squishy" in a random position! LOL Great job, is the front plain?

that's really cool! i like how you put the jellyfish on the back instead of in the front... everyone does the front. awesome work lil-jammer!

Let there be songs to fill the air...

I LOVE your shirt!  I am a hugie fan of all types of sea creatures and I love how you designed these jellies! I like how they aren't EXACTLY realistic but also aren't cartoon-y or anything. Did you do it by hand? Keep up the great work!!

thanks everyone!
Fortune_32 : yes the front is plain right now. maybe I will add a little "squisshy" though.
ffancypantss : I usually do things on the back, as it is a flatter surface. I feel like nothing gets in the way to distort the image, if you know what I mean.
capnhonolulu: I love sea creatures too! pretty much any design I come up with totally on my own involves one. (or robots!), and of course I did it by hand, wouldn't do it any other way!

as for selling it, I think I would have to go by special request only as it was a tad time consuming, but one day I do hope to sell things I make in some form or another.

thanks again!

it is really beautiful!
i dont think it needs anything.  the space is really well filled up (also love it on the back and on the corner.  i believe that more embroidery would mess up the balance you created).
what i think would look cool could be some silver sequin to look like bubbles.
and it would add a little glitz too!
you could start it from the bottom middle, make it smoothly move to the side of the big jellyfish tentacle thingies (i'm so scientific!), "tangle" some bubbles up on it, and make is smoothly move up to the collar limit.
even if you add less will already add a little bling..

That is really beautiful!  Jellyfish rock!

that is sooo gorgeous.

I think maybe you should add a little jellyfish or something to the front. But what you've done already looks amazing, I wouldn't add to the back at all.

Love it!
