yo dudes! I'm getting pretty close to a submission to threadless. I'm trying to work out the colours. This is what I've got so far, with the original colour being on the right and what it looks like on a tshirt below. You only get to submit an idea once, so I want to make sure that my design is the best I can make it before I submit it. I'd love an opinion on the colours, or any feedback in general!

I'm a fan of orange against blue but I think the blues and reds work better with your dude

Yeah I think the oranges look cool, but don't quite fit with the design.

I like what you have but it seems to me that a lot of the colours are competing with each other at the same saturation level.
Maybe try all the balloons at one bright saturated colour so they're the focus, and then that frees up some colour options for the dude where you can use something more desaturated? I dunno if that will look good at all! I'm really liking what you have so far, the balloons coming off and floating away is def a nice touch!

there's a maximum of 8 colours :( so I have to share them between the balloons and the dude, but i definitely agree. with the one on the bottom right, I tried to bring the colours closer together, so they don't compete quite as much.
