Words by the designer:

According to Chinese folklore, the Jade Emperor held a race across the river amongst the animals to determine the order of the Zodiac.


Appreciate the feedback! I wanted the design to flow smoothly and upon closer inspection, reveal all the animals. Thanks for the comments!

WOW thsi is an amazing design! I love the pale use of color, gives teh design an almost etehreal look. Like they are all great spirits or something!
I hear what Choushou is saying though, its a tad light, but if it was full size on a tee i think it woudl look much more impactful!

Great work here :)

I would also place this design slightly higher on the tee.

Beautiful illustration and workmanship - I think that the animals need a bit more definition though to separate them from the rest of the illustration - perhaps more contrast…
