My project for the last 3 days. Can anyone tell me whose tree fort this is? (used to be?)

Just added the wagon this morning and still needs work.

THE PROBLEM: It doesn't look good on a shirt.

I think the shirt color is throwing it off a little, because the one you have now looks a bit.. muddy(?) What does it look like on natural or creme?

Well, I'm taking the shirt colors from xiv's list. This yellow stinks, but I tried a brighter yellow and it looks better. The other colors look weird.

I wish there were tan or khaki colored shirts!

What about this one for the war, did it a while ago and never subbed as a shirt? Not sure how to place it on a shirt though, stars no stars? If stars, allover or confined in a shape… Any thoughts?

Aww f…ck, Just saw Gebe and goliath subbed something similar, sucks! Mine is an oldie but it's game over never the less… :( TGuess it's back to work!

WIP for the war - dogfights. Any comments, suggestions, or thoughts on tee colour? Charcoal's probably my favourite but open to ideas!

P0ckets

I'll have a look - I tried darker colour for them but it seemed to make them stand out too much and off-balance the overall picture. Will try some subtle colours and maybe some light yellow for the gunfire

That's cool! Dunno about coloring. Did you try on silver grey? You would keep the two color option, the smoke shading would be the shirt color. But maybe that's stupid.

Thanks both - updates as a photoset as it'll be lots of pics otherwise:

Victor - I've added a silver grey mockup, though I think I prefer to have the smoke/shading colour stand out from the tee on this one rather than using the shirt colour.

4 variants in the photoset - 2 with coloured planes, which I'm not sure about, and two with grey planes but a bunch of explosions in one (possibly too many...), and lightning in the other.

Awesome design, it's really clever. I think the second one's my favorite!

Think I'm digging this one the most.

The color add is a good move. Like the first two.

Okayyy… think I finally got my bullet. "Wolf in sheep's clothes" with glow ink. What do you guys think? With or without baseline? shirt color (sorry it's also a charcoal)… maybe white? Sheep is greyish, maybe it should be white but I'm fearing the wolf won't pop up enough in the dark…

quick-brown-fox

Shit, that is amazing! I wouldn't go entirely white, I like it as it is at the moment, but you might be right. I think do what's best for the presentation, Threadless will fix it when they print it :)

Coolio - thanks for the advice. Made some very minor amendments to the second one and tidied up some bits - think it's ready to sub :

Large version

Any last thoughts on shirt colour?

P0ckets
P0ckets profile pic Alumni

That's amazing! Really clever and looks great. I think the dark colour works really well as it is.

v_calahan
v_calahan profile pic Alumni

Thx guys, happy I finally have my bullet! Dunno bout sheep color, I like it grey, feel it's more subtle, as for the wolf It'll be GID, so I have the choice between these, not sure which to pick… maybe the "white".

@pockets : go for it, good to go!

v_calahan

Ok thx I'll sub with with white, errrr… or aqua… or white and as John said, Threadless will do their stuff if ever it prints. :)

I think the baseline is done really well - even though the design is quite self explanatory. Bit of a toss up, but I would say keep it

I will be hard pressed for time for the next week so this may just have to be my bullet.
Whoopless Cushion had dreams once.

@$#!!... I didn't know we had this thread err... was busy with training this past week but here's my latest entry that didn't get rejected.. lolol {>,<} v le W.I.P (I ran out of ink... so I had to use another pen with a different brand {-_-}... ) finished product

BeanePod

Lol, at some point (after adding the dots) it did seem a bit familiar. I may tweak it over the wknd just to make myself feel better :)

BeanePod
BeanePod profile pic Alumni

Reworked with color....now feeling much better about myself. Not that it's anything Threadless would ever print but it was nice to finally get that idea out of my head :)

I feel like I owe the house a lot of points, I got declined both of my Thor designs (that was a sad waste of time), so now I want to concentrate on my bullet. Which one of these ideas you think is worthy?

BeanePod
BeanePod profile pic Alumni

oh man i'm a science freak so i love experimental music! but i also think abnormal really deserves to be finished cause it's sooooo god thus far.

sucks about your thor entries :/

P0ckets
P0ckets profile pic Alumni

All look worth finishing dude - some great ideas. I would vote abnormal for your bullet as it is ultra rad

thompson98

Nickname Generators Suck, how could they decline BOTH of your Thor designs. They were the best designs I've seen so far! what did they say was the reason? Wait a while and post it to the threadless comp. They have to print!

I like them all, but K.O. is my fave. It sucks about the thor designs, the big hammer was spectacular.
