We need a truck for the new mopar1973man tshirts

Recommended Posts

Alright gang,

 

We are in the process of making a new Mopar1973man tshirt, but we need to find a good truck image for the front of the shirt.    

 

The image should be simplistic, the fewer shadows / reflections etc in the image the better it will be.  It should also be a angled image of the truck so the grill and bed is visible.

 

 

So lets see what you guys have.  Post up a picture of your truck and maybe your truck will be featured on the new shirts.

Just for show purpose. We want to keep the Mopar M, and the text just changing to the current title logo. So we are looking for a truck to replace mine. :wink:

All the artwork has to vectored and reduced to about 5 colors. So like Me78569 mentions the shadows and reflections will cause issues in rendering in vector art form.

Even 2 trucks in a V pattern would be awesome say 2nd and 3Gen's. Or 1st and 2nd gens... You get the idea...

I don't think mine is worthy to be on any such shirt.  TFaoro has a great looking truck, especially with that new bumper.  Hopefully he has one.

Personally, it is just a T shirt or sticker. I don't think anybodys truck is inherently better or worse for our purpose as a logo truck... what matters is that the truck is easily dealt with by the "artist" that we use for maximum impact and minimal cost and whining by the "artist."  

Forgive my grumping about the artist thing, but I have done T shirt orders before and if somebody is going to put the moniker of Artist on their name, they should be able to free sketch stuff for me without much hassle or complaint.  I know some real artists who have the capability and do such things for fun.  I can throw crap into a software program and make stuff, I have before and it turned out awesome.  I just don't have the demand creativity and skill that a true artist should.

For the shirt I like the 2nd one Tyler.  

 

I think we want a highly optioned oem looking truck.  

 

 

Buzzinhalf,

 

I think we want a truck that gives people something to dream about, not what we all seem to actually deal with on a daily basis :) 

 

Maybe on the back of the shirt we can do a face on image with the front end up on jack stands with random steering pieces hanging off :whistle:

I am working on editing some pictures.  High optioned is good.  A sport model would be awesome.

Several too many colors, but it illustrates what (I think) Nick was talking about in terms of needing fairly clean reflections to show detail in few colors.

I like this one... Creative juices are flowing.  And, it is two colors.

Not bad CSM...

I used a font I like that mimics the one the USFS and Park Service used in the 1950s that has a nice 'lets go do something fun' look.  I am currently looking for something to put in the background in black.  Mountains, trees, Wild and Free being wild and free...

That actual font of the Achieve Your Destination actually was suppose to mimic the old 1970's Challenger Font. In designing that I was keeping to a Mopar theme mix of old and new.

All this is in layers as a .psd in Adobe Elements, so it can be re edited easily.

A bit more busy.  The sun rays might be a bit much, but hey, let me know what you all think.  My creativity is waning at the moment.  4 colors.

I can tell that they are and they are the best 16 inch rim ever built. I have a set on my 1st gen and my 2nd gen with a spare set in the garage. Folks don't know what they are/ sell them too cheap. They are $280.oo a piece brand new:ahhh:

I like the direction you guys are going for the T shirt truck. Would like to see mountains in the background like the old one.

They are cool rims.  Very classic dodge.  They do crack eventually though.

CSM we are referring to the rims featured more near the beginning of the thread of the all black truck with the regular size cab. Those are the very special Alcoa rims. They hardly ever fail to my knowledge and are far superior.

I must say too that the Dodge center caps do fit with the Alcoas with a minor amount of remodeling.

Sorry about the off topic I always get side tracked.
