Sweet!

I like the side profile guy.  How did you you make/find it? 

I tried to make a quick draft of my G-Design thingy.  It's rough.  I think it would be better to make the sling a bit shorter and the guy bigger.


...

Let me know what you guys thinks about Yurek's and mine.

Here's a version with a larger guy:

Here's a another image with a slight twist.

Again, these are very rough.  Lots of tweeks and improvements to be made.  Just concentrate on the overall concept.

Yes I do. It's my work, but... not all. I'm only the shadow of the ancient artist who created the sculpture of Zeus (or Poseidon) of Cape Artemision (Euboea). Smiley

But seriously, I found the photo with the sculpture of Zeus in Google.com.

http://arthist.cla.umn.edu/aict/html/ancient/GS/GS048.html

Then I took the outline (just the shadow Smiley). Next I was plaing with the graphical program. I changed the position of his arm and the wrist a bit. Added the sling, text and the colours. I endeavoured to keep the climate.

Chris, I really like Your site, it's tasteful and interesting. My expresion in English is rather poor and a bit dificult for me. So I use pictures for the contribution sometimes Smiley

Yurek, you've got the skills and programs to manipulate these images better than me.  Could you use your image, but change it so it's an underarm throw like mine.  My tweaking of it isn't so good.  Then I can incoperate in the G effect and the slinging.org font.

Chris, I suppose You overrate my capability to transform this profile. I'm sure I couldn't make it better than You. It is difficult to get a good result from this figure. It would be probably easier to draw new one, but I'm not an artist. Sorry Chris Sad

If I find a better pattern I'll willingly send it to You.

Ok, no problem.  When i get a bit of time, i'll try to make a more finalized version.  People need to post feedback about which ones they like.  Im not going to put in a few hours tweaking a design people aren't interested in.

I sort of like the last one here from Dan Taylor.  Try the text reduced under the image and shorter but fit to the length of the graphic.  Maybe bolder text in this scenario.  This would give the graphic a base on which to sit and make the legless thrower more intentional looking.  Maybe also shorten the sling to a scale length of a bit less than three feet.

Additionally, I think this would look good as a large, back-of-shirt, image or small on the breast.

I like most of the designs, the character of this one stands out to me though.

Hi All,

I propose we have a long sleeve T-Shirt with the elongated "slinging .org" on the sleeves
(using the one with the slinger just left of the "G" and the  dot of .org being the stone)

On the pocket we could use the more square shaped Slinging.org.

On the back we could have the Dan Taylor tpye slinger and the words "Stone Age Ballistics" and "Just Sling It"

??????????????????????  David

The slinging.org down the sleeves might look cool, but I'm not sure if people are equipped to print there. 

We could print all over the place, but the cost is going to be extraordinary.  My vote is on something simpler.  I'm thinking a graphic (like the slinging.org where the dot is the rock) in the pocket area and a quote on the back like "Just sling it" or "got sling?" or some other catch phrase if we can come up with (and agree) a good one. 

Also, it looks like many of the regular members are keen, but we need to order something like 20-30 to get the price per shirt down (and more is preferable).  There are standard setup fees you see.  Lets keep this thread kicking around for a while longer to catch a few more perspective buyers.

I think the "just sling it" idea is good.Brent

I know they can print on the sleeves without too much trouble but as you say, cost could be the issue with too much printing. I may get Dan (He is my brother) to make me up one and post a picture of it.

Later, David

Just wanted to let you know that progress is being made regarding slinging shirts.  I'm exploring several possibilities and I'll keep you posted.  Once I select a company im satisfied with, we'll move ahead with finalizing a design. 

Im really busy at the moment, so it might be a few weeks yet.

Long sleeve tshirts would be cool  8) I'd buy one if it's a decent price...

I like the looks of these two - ...
...
the only thing I might change though is reduce the font size of the .ORG so it doesn't stand out so much, just an idea...

And it would be sweet to get one of the Biblical passages regarding slinging on it  Smiley
