Most funnyly, I like the first draft (1a) best. This gnu looks
strong and wild, not willing to eat the same non-free grass everyone
else is satified with, and it makes a nice contrast to the lovely
princess Europa. :)

The version without the eyes (2a) looks a little unfriendly for me.

The gnus in (3[a-d]) have too few details to be interesting on a
T-shirt, IMHO.

The gnus in (3[ef]) seem somewhat too philosophical to me. It
looks as if the gnu was thinking about freedom, licensing etc.
(see http://www.gnu.org/philosophy/), not if it was running in
order to bring princess Europa to a place where all software is

Just my two centiEuro,
