Thanks for the comments. I realize there isn't really time to redo this one for the current derby (not that it really had a chance to win anyway).
My initial comps were on a solid blue shirt -- but I couldn't get it to work right. As soon as I put the drawing in a frame, the artwork popped.
You're absolutely right about that ink-covered space, it isn't comfortable! I'll think about that during next derby. A worn effect would help, yea?
