Custom T-Shirt designs

I am planning on making some Custom T-Shirts of one of my favorite games, Psychonauts! (seeing as how almost no Psychonauts shirts have been made) Problem is, there is basically no officially released artwork or anything. I need some images for the shirts but all I can really find off the net are screenshots from the game. Does anyone have any images that I could use?

And any good ideas for shirt designs would be great too! I was thinking of a series of shirts with the Spies from The Milkman Conspiracy and on each one they would have a different spy something from the level and they would each say something, just like the game. I can't explain it very well. But for example, on one shirt there would be a spy holding a watering can and the shirt would say "This is my watering can. I use it on the plants to water them."

Tim Fandango Has a lot of concept art you could use.

Hello there, the spies would be good, as well as the badges. You know, the little designs used for the badges would be cool on a shirt. The easiest way to get the images would be to have someone photoshop savvy use some screenshots and isolate the particular image (this is for the Gmen), fix it up a little so that the Gmen looks shirt worthy (sharpening, brighter, more saturated colors and whatnot), put in the dialog, and send the finished pic to one of those custom-shirt makers. There is also a particular paper out there made specifically for transfering pictures onto cloth...like those iron-ons. Not too sure on the proccess or the price. If using a screenshot is not an option, have someone draw it out for you.

Thanks. I guess I could find some good screenshots and do my best to make em work for a shirt. I have Photoshop so I could fix em up myself. And I like the badges idea, maybe have them all in a diamond like in the game and a picture of Raz or something in the middle. I already have a place in mind where I'm gonna have the shirts made, I want them to look as close to an authentic shirt as possible.

CafePress...I just checked this place out and I am very intrigued. What is it exactly? Could I just submit Psychonauts designs that I want made into apparel and they will sell them or something? I'm not quite sure I fully understand this...

I still want one of those camp whispering rock T-Shirts from Psychonauts.com. Maybe for my birthday.

Pretty much, ArtOfLosingMFZB. They manage to not lose money because they make you charge a minimum for each item and then they take that minimum. You can add extra on to make some money yourself if you wish, although obviously this makes it slightly more unlikely that people'll buy them if you get carried away.

They make them to order, so unless somebody buys them they're never made. It's a pretty good system if you're after some unique stuff and have a knack for design.

do you think it would fall under copyright infringement if I made Psychonauts designs and submitted them? or Calvin & Hobbes? (those were another series of shirts I wanted to make.)

Thats mostly due to Bill Waterson being a prick.

Yes.

Whether or not anything's done about it is a different matter though. :~

I sure as hell didn't get any money from them (even if people did buy them, I didn't get squat) but CafePress probably ripped them all off.

I am very interested by the whole Vernon apparel line. If I really wanted to, I would get that golf shirt and wear it around. Just plain awesome.

So, KingCheez, would you know if anyone did buy your shirts? And how much did it cost for you to make them?



^Above picture=awesome.

There's one on another thread somewhere. Look around and you should find it.
