Re: Driving to the Cabin v 2.0


It never fails a drive to the cabin equals a drive through a construction zone.

This design is quite a change for me stylistically. I was shooting for a 50s style and experimenting with new halftones.

Shortly after submitting the first version of this design I noticed I place it lower on the shirt than I intended. Version 2.0 corrects this problem.

Comments are always appreciated!

Thanks!

Just repeating my first-version comment: The design's not for me, but I love the style.

Thanks to everyone who has supported this design.

I'm glad to here people are digging the style. I may try it again in the near future. It fun and it's a good creative challenge.

I thought it might be fun to show off the original illustration I scrapped in favor of the the more simplistic 50s style.



Thanks again!

I reallllllly like this but I think it's somewhat awkwardly sized. I would have made it like a fullscreen.

Thanks capedcrusader514!

Generally, I try to keep the width of my designs within the 10 to 12 inch range, so they don't start wrapping around the torso. I errored on the small side this time (10 inches maximum width). Following your advice, I rescaled it to max out the height and the design works a bit better now.



Question: What width do you assume the blank t-shirt template is? I've always assumed it's about 22 inches wide (1/2 the maximum chest diameter of a men's large AA).

Sounds abut right to me, I wouldn't worry to much about it though. That mockup looks great.
