    When I originally posted I was thinking about a shirt they had at Hot Topic. I've tried to find a pic online and the best one I can find is here:
    http://design.darthwhoever.com/weblog-trooper.html

    It's not on the Hot Topic site anymore but you can get the idea from that pic. Stylized means a non-photorealistic image. More of an impression of what the subject looks like than an actualy representation. Just an idea.

    I don?t get the design for the T-shirt. I think ?Got Beach? sounds a little too much like ?Got Bleach?. So, maybe instead you could switch it to ?Got Trooper? as an alternative slogan. This of course is just a suggestion. Also, I don?t understand why there is a snorkel coming out of the helmet. What about a huge rendering of the Death Star, but instead of it being all black/gray it could be colored in as a multi-colored beach ball. I don?t see to many people at the beach here in Daytona with snorkels is what I?m getting at. And you might want to consider the colors blue, or red for the shirt. I feel that a cheerier color will draw more people?s attention away from the fact that we could be not a fun group.

    We were going to go off of the 'Got Armor' shirts that have been floating around for a while. Go to ebay and type in 'Got Armor' and you'll see what I mean. Also, I've been in contact with the person that does those shirts, so we know he could do them. The snorkel was so people would think he was a Trooper swimming at the beach.

    I do like the idea of the Death Star though. The only problem is that more colors equals a higher cost. What about instead of a beachball, something like a Volleyball? That way it would still scream 'beach' and we could keep the colors simple. This is only because we are going to be selling to individual members, thus attempting to keep the cost at a minimum.

    I also like the idea of a blue shirt. I just like blue, so what can I say? We could either go with many colors of shirts, say blue, gray, white, and black (again, a blue shirt is more expensive) or maybe just pick one color to help keep it uniform. I think it all depends on how many people are going to want to wear these shirts to events. It would look cool to have us all in a big group with multiple colors, to play off the 'fun factor' but if only two or three people are going to be wearing them at any given time, I think we should decide on one color, or maybe just two of the contrast shades (black and white) to help keep things looking uniform.

    I could see the snorkel idea working, but the beach ball is alittle.... well...

    I suggest having a Fem-Bikini Tropper and a Muscle-bound Trooper (I have to have it uni-sexual) that says "Got Beach?" underneath it.

    How about that?

    Yeah, I really liked that idea Jack, but no one else seems too interested in doing the drawings. It would go great if we went the stylized route. The reference pics are still on the website.

    If we can't come together with something by the next Con I say we just have white shirts that say 'Daytona Beachtroopers' then have a big box on the back that says 'Insert logo here' [face_plain]

    EDIT:

    Those that want shirts:

    Karma

    Kahsyyyk
    Jayna x4

    OK, here's a preliminary design based off of the Hot Topic shirt.

    http://www.angelfire.com/pa2/jdoud/troopidea.html

    The shirt is actually a licensed Lucasfilm product but I think I changed the image significantly enough that we shouldn't have a problem. If we do grey shirts it would only be a 2 color patern. Anything else and we'd have to add grey for the shadows and detail bits.

    Now what I need is FEEDBACK!!! What do you think? How should it be changed? What do you like? What do you dislike? Do you want it facing another direction? Different angle? More dynamic? Keep the waves? Scrap it all together? WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME PEOPLE?!?!! ... *pant* *pant*

    I'm ok now. :D
    Seriously, post what you think it needs.

    Hmmmm, I think someone FINALLY understands how I feel! :p

    I really like it. Is there anything you can do with the left arm though? The one without the blaster? He just seems way too... stiff, I guess? I don't know what the original looks like, but maybe have the arm out to the sid like he's balancing himself?

    Great job other than that! :)

    All around, I like it. I think a slightly more dynamic pose (especially in the arms) and slightly cleaner lines might help. It would also probably help distinguish it even more from the copyrighted graphic.

    I am trying to think of a happier way to convey the "wave look"- as I don''t quite think that the lines are doing that. Maybe just drawing in little splashes? I don't know. I'm playing with it a bit myself. We'll see.

    I do think that we can make this work. I think I like this design better than the snorkel head. Great job!

    What about something like a curl going over his head?

    And while I like the lines the way they are, who ever we get to screen this will probably shoot themselves before they get it cut out completely. I don't know if anyone that works for groups this small used stencils to cut out .tiff graphics or not. If that were the case then it wouldn't be a problem.

    We never discussed what we wanted on the front, did we? What about using the design I have posted at the top of the page for the front, then have 'Got Beach?' under the trooper surfing? Did we still want to use that slogan? Maybe just have the slogan on the front and our FF info on the back? Questions? Comments? Concerns? Complaints? Ammusing aniqdotes?

    I figured just do like the "got armor" shirts and have Daytona Beachtroopers and the Imperial Logo on the front. As for the back, I guess it would depend on if we're still going to go through the "got armor" guy. If we use a different picture and a different slogan we wouldn't have to go through him. I keep making little changes here and there. Tell me specifics people! What parts do you like!

    What do you mean your own icon? Is Jack's custom? I thought it was part of the data base.

    Contact Master_Kenobi out uploading icons. You can find her name in the 'avatar' thread, then just click on it to send her a PM. I think you can also contact Minacia_Brightstar, our RSA.

    My icon's not custom, I found it in the database. As for the t-shirt idea, draw one up and we'll take a look at it!
