I like all the designs so far.
That's much better than liking none of the designs. It means you will want a Tee Shirt, no matter which design wins. Should we do a poll to see how many would buy a Tee Shirt?

We'll get a better sense of how many people will buy when I make a poll on which design to choose..

I hope more people would enter and it's not just me and Hoppy.

Zero art skills here, more of a cut, bolt, weld type.

Surprized myself that more didn't throw out designs. Several here in the membership are quite gifted.
I'll be buying for sure. If the shirts are produced on the basis of orders maybe more than one design option?

I like the designs a lot.

I would put something along the lines of a nature aquarium design though. Maybe with some moss grown branch or something. Only my drawing/designing skills are so good that a 5 year old autistic child once told me that the duck I tried drawing isn't a duck and that he will draw a better one. So as much as I would like to enter something, I doubt anyone could tell what it will be.

Will probably have at least one design up here tommorrow. Just have to get into things a bit better and finish my work before finishing my design.

Am I interpreting this correctly that our design can have the T-shirt be any color we like? Or does it have to be white?

Just curious, how long is this constest open for?

EDIT: Nevermind, I found the answer to that last part.

I am curious as well because one of my designs would be white on a black T-Shirt..

Oh yeah, hope to have my 2 designs up ASAP.

Cool more designs!!! Yes, color t-shirts are available that's on Cafepress. For now, use any color you want and we'll find something that matches.. Black is an option. Make sure sure to have you file on layers so you can output a PNG, 24 bit transparency to be printed on a color t-shirt.

heh, do you want to enter the design on a napkin? Sorry but the technical stuff is as important as the idea. Otherwise you would get a blob of mud on your t-shirt. Quality is important.

There are step-by-step how-tos on the cafepress links I posted if you want to format your files. If you have any questions, ask me. Happy to help.

You should be able to turn over our designs to TPT's big technical staff, and have their art department convert them to usable files

Let me be more direct in my point. This is too techy for the common person who isnt involved in graphic design or photoshop. It seems easy to you because you are a computer artist, but the common user has been eliminated by the techy portion of it. Hence the great interest in the beginning of this, yet only two people have entered in a week. How about a someone to mail your design to that will scan it and set it up? that way you dont eliminte designs from the guy who doesnt have photoshop? Or a scanner? Or is just a computer idiot like me (wads up napkin and throws it away)?

All snark aside, is it doable to accept designs in whatever format they can be submitted in, then have one or more of us work on the winning design to convert it to a usable png of the appropriate size? I can see problems with that, but I can also see how it could work. I would be willing to be one of those helping to convert such a design.
