We are now at the next step of evolution .... getting MA gear.

I am giving you, the members the power to make MA gear with a little contest.


I am going to make some MA t-shirts so I can flash my "colors". I am pretty proud of our community and how it continues to grow. Therefore, I feel that you the members will have the chance to come up with a t-shirt design.

There are only 2 rulz.

1- Needs to have the mameaddcits.com Logo somewhere. You can change it if you like make it drip or look like its got bullet holes.

2- No company names or logo what so ever. These would be like adding "Capcom", or Atari logo. I have been a some trouble before an had to remove content that had that. So, don't add it or your submission will be disqualified. :shame:


Members can submit as many as they want. It can only better you chances.


Now the details ..... Picture specifications.
In order for me to use it. Picture NEEDS TO BE MINIMUM 300 DPI, AND NO MORE THAN 3 COLORS, AND IN A PSI FORMAT (ADOBE PHOTOSHOP)!

THE MORE COLORS, THE MORE A SHIRT WILL COST. So really have you thinking cap on.[/color]

Post youR picture in this thread. If another member likes it they post what they like by replying in the thread.

I will be the only judge along with a friend of mine who is the Marketing wizard at my job.

What am I looking for?

Something not too busy that catches the eye ... a real conversation starter.


SO get your thinking caps on and lets make some cool t-shirts.

CONTEST ENDS AS SOON AS I FIND THAT WINNING DESIGN.

THE WINNER GETS A FREE T-SHIRT FOR THEMSELVES AN A FRIEND!

---UPDATE---
The t-shirts are going to be black.
Cool design are nice, but If you have a fancy slogan put it here and If I use it and you will get a shirt.

I really need you members to put you thinking caps on. :yes:


Comments / questions post here.

Cool idea, Chris. I'll have mine in extra large please! :tongue:

It's a pity I'm not very skilled in the ways of Photoshop, which I don't have on my PC anyway. I know I could get GIMP instead but that still wouldn't solve my skill shortage. What I am good at though is drawing and painting by hand.

When you say "Needs to have the mameaddcits.com Logo", I assume that means just the MA shiny ball up there ^. Maybe you could post that on it's own as a starting point for people to play around with.

Also where you say "No company names or logo what so ever", does that also mean no licensed characters like Ryu, Spiderman, etc.?

Here is the logo in its basic form.

You can alter the look a bit to fit in your design.

As for licensed Characters....having them on the site is ok, but selling shirts for profit with them on there will be an issue.

This is way members will have to put there thinking caps on. I mean you could have characters that look similar? I think something with an arcade maching would be pretty sweet. They would convey what our site is about rather than a street fighter on there.

Ah OK, I'm with you now. The first idea I had, which was the reason for asking about licensed characters, was to have Ken chucking a fireball but the ball is the MA logo instead.

To be frank, if you want to be in the "Gray" area with
that idea, make the image sort of black and white (Gray scale) and the fire ball being the only color. Remember, 3 colors this includes white.

So as long as the name "Ken" or "Street Fighter" is not in the picture, I think it would be fine.

The shirts are going be black t-shirts.

Cool, if the t-shirts are black then that can act as a 4th colour for outlines and shadows.

I had a little idea of like having the MA logo open up (kind of like a pac-man) and then all this stuff falls out. Like an arcade machine, a guy who is gonna play the games, a pizza, a soft drink, etc. I might do a quick sketch up to show what I mean.
