Here is a design I recently drew up and converted to vector for a t-shirt.

I submitted the design for a contest at DBH for their halloweek2 contest what do you all think. If it does not win in the contest should I post this up for sale as a Royalty Free Graphic for all to buy and or try to sell as a printed shirt.

Let me know what you all think

Hi. Trouble with this type of design from a printing perspective, is smoothing out the edges, so it blends into the tee. At the moment it is always going to look like a rectangular design slapped onto a shirt.

I'd be inclined to make the outline, the same general shape as the main character, then lay the design onto that character's body.

Hope this helps.

Good luck with the contest. :)

well my original thought on this is if i sell printed shirts they would be all over prints so I would just have to find a belt printer to do the job. but yes thanks for the help

All over prints are great, but due to the added complexity of printing them, you have to do them in significant quantity to produce them at a realistic price.

I've done a few all over prints myself using sublimation, which limits some of the design elements, but produces fantastic visual imagery.

Will just summed it up pretty well in that post :)

No on the rectangle t-shirt design. Yes on giving the design a unique shape/outline/silhouette.
