I have a friend here at work whose husband is being re-deployed to Iraq for, I think, the 3rd time. (sucks) They (his unit) decided they wanted t-shirts to help out a little with morale/camaraderie.
The original design was developed by one of the guys in the unit, but it was determined to be too busy, and too many colors for a t-shirt print.
So she came to me and asked if I could help out. For our troops, I was happy to.
Below are the original and the re-design. I knew I was on the right track when S.A.M. actually recognized the plane I used! :)
For those who care, they were done as vector art in Adobe Illustrator.
Next up, I have several special custom projects/portraits, thanks to Midlife Slices! (Yea!) Hopefully she will share as I get them done!
