Re: Initiative


Just a quick design

on a side note...
I wish I knew how to do the fancy shirt comps with the real teeshirts and whatnot... I have googled to no avail. Kinda makes the other designs look like crap in comparison. The ones in the top are always fancy pictures etc... i kinda wish the design submissions all had to look the same as far as how we are allow to present the design... it kinda feels like only people with professional knowledge on how to present the design and the $$ to buy special backgrounds are the people who win... even tho this is supposed to be a contest for anyone.
Can anyone advise? I hate to sound like a whiner lol but it is the truth- the winners are always the ones with fancy design comps

Not really true, but you'll pick up the tricks of the trade as you keep designing.

ok... if its not true... then lets see how many of the final 9 this week have fancy shirt comps lol and see out of the 3 winners if there are *any* who do not have the fancy design backgrounds lol im willing to bet most if not all of the final 9 will have professional looking backgrounds (which the typical lay person would never know how to do)

I def. understand that the better the shirt comp looks the more votes... but there seems to be a huge gap in quality of the comps because the top designers are using techniques and backgrounds the everyday person would not or could not replicate.

Additionally, you can try this thread http://shirt.woot.com/forums/viewpost.aspx?postid=2320388, though some of the links in there may be dead. Just try a few until you get one that works.

Yeah, no need to get cranky, :P There are plenty of artists here who are willing to help out newcomers, just need to ask and be willing to learn!

Poke around the blog heading; there have been many posts about where to find out how to do various wonderful things on t'shirts, and how to use the site to your advantage.

Also - use the message function on the artists you like. Almost everyone here is super nice and willing to help people out. I'm still fairly new to the game and I ask people questions all the time.
