Nice job Hiero mate.

I hope it ends up with a pretty simple design, just an eye-catching logo on the front with www.mameaddicts.com on the back or something.

I'm bad at drawing but you know what i'm getting at.

Hey guys, thanks for the nice comments! :blush:

Yeah Nos, I appreciate what you mean about the effectiveness of simplicity in design. That first drawing of the MA fatboy cab is a bit simpler than it might look though. The black outer area with all the crosshatching isn't actually part of the design, that's just meant to represent where the edge of the design meets the black background of the t-shirt.

Looking at the mini solar system I put on the side of the MA cab gave me another idea. Sci fi shooters are a big part of MAME so I drew this today. I'm thinking of some futuristic lettering for MAMEADDICTS.COM to go with this, but doing good lettering by hand can be really time consuming. Maybe later.

I am pretty awful at painting too NOS. Anyway Hiero lemme say that you deserve to have the site design done. Oh and there is a thought I had: the MA logo could be on the chest (heart actually like the teams' badges),the arcade can cover the other part of the front and the little boy can go at the back. Oh and right on the top of the back there can be our names in a specific letter symbols. This is what I have in mind:

I don't agree with putting any forum usernames on the t-shirts elias. Especially when you consider that as the site grows, there will hopefully be a whole lot more people joining and contributing and therefore it would be unfair to those people to not put them on the t-shirt just because they joined at a later date to us.

:sparta:

That's if they even want to be on the t-shirt in the first place :smile:

I know where you're coming from though.

Maybe we should just have MY username on the t-shirt seeing as I am the most skilled gamer on the site :hooray:

All I have to say is WOW!

Hierophant you can draw your butt off! I all of you have some good ideas. I thought of a slogan ...what do you think...and be honest, I won't ban you if you don't like it. :hehe:

"Preserving the past for the future...."

or

"Relive the past in the present"

I have to say I like that arcade picture that I saw.

I was thinking of the MA logo that was made out of space invaders. So, have a bunch of space invaders (like in the game) but they form the MA logo rather than a square. Even have the gun at the bottom? Just tossing that idea in. Not sure if I like it. This is a contest after all, so I should stay out of it. :blush:

Cheers Chris!

It's one thing being able to draw. Photoshop is a whole other ballgame though. :confused:

OK, being honest here, don't shoot! Those slogans sound pretty similar to MAME Dev's 'preserving arcade history' blurb. We could possibly have something a bit more specific to what we do here.

I can picture how the Space Invaders idea might look, pretty cool, but again I wonder about copyright stuff with that kind of thing.

This sketch is probably not quite what you're after, but dragon's are just so damn cool I couldn't resist.
