Yuffie

A character after initial doodle I dumped on Flickr and ignored. I later got told by a few people that it was their favorite doodle of mine. Getting it into a high rez image was really hard though. The original doodle is about 2cm high. It was tiny. No matter how I upsized and vectored her she always had little bobbles on her lines. After some shouting, swearing and bashing the laptop about, I got the bobble lines into semi bobble lines that I loved. The result ended up on the T Shirt above.

Yuffie was the name of a necromancer I used to play in Ultima Online. If you are going to be evil, be evil with a groovy name. Yuffie is now available on my Threadless store page.

Sprite

Another of my recent redesigns. I love this simple little character, but as with Smoke, I had made the image to large for the T Shirt, offered him only in white and needed to tidy him up a bit.

I filled in his eyes as white, but left the post posca dots on his head transparent. The above image is the social media friendly image I can tweet for him. He also looks nice on colours other than white. Again, yes, I know, it was my first time creating this sort of thing.

As the above image suggests, he is also now available on my Threadless store.

Smoke

One of the first T Shirts I uploaded to Threadless had this guy on. The problem was he was too big. Like way to big. He covered the whole front of the shirt. I like the look of him, but aesthetically on a shirt, it was kinda dumb. Also only available in white. Hey it was my first time with this sorta thing.

I spent some time talking to people on Twitter, there was a general agreement though that I needed to shrink him center his eyes to the neck line better, offer more than white and give him a more Tweet & Facebook friendly image.

The above was the result. Quite happy with it. Sometimes its the little changes that make the difference.

You can buy Smoke in a million (maybe 20) different colours on my Threadless store.
