That would be me joatmon! hehehe.
Thanks to those who liked my design enough to vote for it. I am sure if joatmon, silverawd, or millster had submitted a design, we would be looking at a different winner! Congratulations goes out to whoever did entry #3 for the second place prize. btw...who are you? LOL
I like the fact that all designs showing the car represent a universal design, so we can all enjoy it (ie. color & options designed appeal to owners of different color and options).
Generally, its too bad that each of us entrants are not real good at computer graphics
though! ( I can really appreciate the time and effort that you all put in to this...well done everyone!
Here is my own take of the submissions.
entry 1 - good viberations
rather cool. I would like to see the back as small left front breast picture, and the front image on the back. The rather angular shading shown contradicts to the smooth lines of the actual car though.
entry 2 - loveme/not
Best in terms of originality. My macho guy self isn't too keen on having a big colorful flower on my shirt, though! lol
entry 3 - black and yellow
Nice clean design! front would look better again as a smaller left breast picture. I would like to see the back picture showing the front view of the car to see more detail
entry 4 - got vibe?
Good use of humor, and a simple design...love it! Seems similiar to the entry 1 in style and flavour. The lines are a little wobbly though. I would like to replace the "drawn-on-a-napkin" with something a little more clean and professional looking.
entry 6 - black w. red stripe
front logo doesnt match existing logo on sleeve, although its a good idea putting one there. Well thought out design in terms of designing the shirt as a whole.
entry 7 - black w. red circle
Good clean, appealing, professional looking design! I see a pontiac logo though! Perhaps some pure black lines for the car, or at least black for the main countour lines would make it stand out more, as i find the car to be "washed out"
entry 8 - 18 to 80
Nice bright colors, but, no offense, the car looks like an inflatible vibe to me! As cute as that is, (the actual car is rather cute in reality) i wonder if people would come up to me asking if my kid drew that or not! lol!
entry 5 (mine) - instrument panel
my halftoning dots are bigger than i wanted, but i thought the tshirt making process could not handle too small a dot. Finer detail DOES work better This would work well as left front breast image too, if the lettering was ALOT bigger. My original design had a two tone effect in the "vibe" text as well. It somehow got lost in the .GIF conversion process. I hope that this gets translated into the printing press design.
I do intend to listen to you guys, and make the text a bit larger, so you can read it. Also want to show you what the 2-tone "vibe" text would look like. Depending on what Mike thinks, I will try to put up a link with a bigger version of the picture, and you can all put in your 2cents worth! Then, hopefully, when mike gets back from SEMA, he will already have a finer tuned version waiting for him
