Red Bubble T-Shirts

Postby ori-STUDFARM » Sun Sep 30, 2012 3:09 pm

I've got a few friends who create T-shirts on Red Bubble. And, wanting a unique T-shirt myself, I took a look at it last night. Downloaded GIMP (free art and image creator) and started playing about....This is what I made. I'm actually kinda impressed. I am an absolute techinical numpty...and most of my time was taken up with simple actions that others would be able to do in a second. (Basically, I spent all night trying to create a 2400x3200 image with a clear background!!

Anyway, I managed it....what do you guys reckon? And any suggestions for anything else?

Okay. A couple more added....I was worried that the design wouldn't show on a black shirt, so did a different coloured one specifically for darker t-shirts...

These two have been removed after a complaint from Lucasfilm...one I'm not going to dispute. Even though I didn't use any logo's and kept it to a basic silhouette and even though there are over 4000 other Star Wars images that breach a hell of a lot more than that!!

**le sigh**

Slightly perturbed at being down to one design again....and a design that, given the choice, I would do very differently (although I have ordered one!). I've just knocked this one up in about an hour...Getting quicker!

Yeah... LucasArts is the ONE company you don't want to mess with... even though it's in their best interest to let fans create artwork for the franchise (who can do it 1,000 times better than anything done by LucasArts in the last 10 years), they're notorious for being tight-assed about their property. I'm surprised they haven't sent a C&D on your AT-AT GIF... =)

I'm surprised how quickly I'm learning. Finding it easier after each one and getting a better idea of what I would do differently....I may go redo the DivaDroid one. Although, I have already ordered one of those. Ready for DJXVII

Okay....I've added a couple more. And I can definitely see an improvement as I'm starting to get my head around the GIMP editing software...

Incidently, I found the Trooper image on a supposedly royalty free site that tells you to share and profit from this free art...

I've gone for another...but was struggling for inspiration that wasn't Star Wars related!! The other day I read a 3 comic mini series called WE3 about experimental cyborg enhanced animals manufactured for use by the military. It was very reminiscent of Richard Adams' 'The Plague Dogs' and I loved it.

I was only playing around and ended up with this that I really liked. So I bunged it up on Red Bubble!
