Thank you all for your awesome feedback on the shirt concepts! #2 was by far the favourite, and I think I can please almost everyone by submitting that design to welovefine.
...Which I just did! I've touched up the design a bit to make it ready for printing. I also changed the background effect slightly to show off Rainbow's colours better. Don't worry though, it's still the same design, just with the colour layout of the background a bit better!
Now it's up to welovefine to get permission from Hasbro, and to decide if they actually want to print this design. This can take anywhere up to 20 working days, although I hope it will go a bit faster, MLP being their ever-trending category. If they do decide to go on with this design, it shouldn't take too long to actually get it for sale.
I'll write another journal when their decision is made and when it's (hopefully) for sale, so stick with me for now!
I've recently acquired an artist account on welovefine.com, so I can make and submit shirt and poster designs. Now I have had a few people asking me permission to print one of my glowing wallpapers on a shirt, so I figured there were at least a few of you that would be interested in one of those glowing ponies on a shirt at welovefine!
I didn't want to just copy and paste the wallpapers on a shirt, though. I wanted to make the pony itself a bit bigger, and put it right in the middle. After redrawing Rainbow Dash for this purpose, there was still one thing I was unsure of. Should I add anything besides the pony itself?
This is where I want to ask for your opinion. I made four concept shirts, and want to ask you which one you'd prefer. I'm not going to take votes, but I just want to hear all your opinions, so I can decide on which one to pick. Keep in mind that these may have been changed slightly in the final version.
You can look at the different options here:
(I'm probably only going with dark shirt colours, but is there anyone here who would be interested in a white shirt for these things?)
1. Just the glowing pony
2. Added a smoke effect on the background
3. The pony's name under the drawing
4. Glowing lines under the pony
Keep in mind that welovefine hasn't accepted these yet, so I can't guarantee that they will actually be available soon. They did give me an artist profile after showing interest in my glowing wallpapers though, so I think it'll be alright!
If Rainbow Dash does get accepted, I will try to make shirts in the same style for the rest of the mane 6, maybe even the others too if people really like it ^^
So, which one would you prefer?
(I'll probably take your comments into consideration for the next one or two days, after which I will submit one design to welovefine.)
