A buddy's granddaughter's U12 softball team is going to Girls Softball World Series in Mississippi at the end of the month.
He asked if I could do a couple of shirts for him.
Looking at what he gave me thought I could.
Seems somewhat simple.
Either make a circle for the ball or find one. Tho wasn't sure how to make the seams.
Then import the image of her.
Add the text.
Biggest obstacle I thought would be the metallic like coloring for her name and number.

The shirts are to be dyesubbed.

Well sat down to do it and now feel like a idiot cuz I am stumped.
Seems like alot of times I look at a design and think it would be somewhat simple to do but once I get in front of the computer I freeze up , lose any intelligence I think I have in PS or any graphics program and freak out.

So if anyone got a few mins to help unfreak me with a few dummy steps to get started would appreciate it.

I gotta lose this mental block I get.

Thanks
Mark

If you can scan those 2 pieces of art at a very high resolution I think that would be the way to go for only a few shirts. The glitter letters might be tricky but then again you might actually get the reflective effect out of it.

If you have a vector image editing program like Illustrator.
When ever I'm brain dead I go to www.brandsoftheworld.com and do a search for what I'm looking for.
I open it up in my vector program, tear apart the logo and take out the parts I want to use.
After that, open your illustrator file in photoshop and make it any way you want.
I also do searches on google images, you can choose in the search settings for higher resolution images (the bigger the better) and do the same thing.
I hope this helps

Here is my attempt at it.. more basic than the image you uploaded, but it may work for you. Just place the girls pic in the circle already cut into the middle of the baseball.

I hope this is of some help to you.

I took a clip art baseball image and converted it to a vector image with a program called Vector Magic, after getting a vector image I saved it as a very large png file. I do a lot of designing in Microsoft Publisher, oddly enough. That is what I used to create the image's text, etc.
