Hello, artists of the Gaia world. I am one of the leaders of my university's anime club. The president contacted me last night asking for designs for potential t-shirts we could order...the problem is I didn't know I was supposed to make them. Now I have to tell her this while I quickly work some ideas up. I'm an amateur at Photoshop CS4 so this is a little difficult for me. I was wondering if any of you have any tips or suggestions on t-shirt designs.
We have a chibi version of our school's mascot, Baxter, that I need to put on somewhere. (There's Baxter.) Other than that she wasn't that specific except to not focus on one anime.
Anyway, thank you if you respond or having any suggestions! cat_sweatdropcat_razz
As long as it's a simple or flat colored design, it should work. I hear vector is better than raster when it's meant for reproduction, but that might not be necessary. I'd also avoid using a licensed character from an anime/manga altogether.
Maybe design an OC that would fit in with your anime club and draw them playing with Baxter. Or they could be sharing pocky. Pocky is always fun.
I designed the anime club logo at the college I go to and the college makes the shirts and one of the instructors also silk screens the shirts. I own rights to the OC but not the club so I was only told I cannot sell any shirts for a profit and it is owned by the college until I graduate.
