I finally finished my latest project! I know, it's rather cheesy, but I was in the mood for sparkles and fairy dust ;p
I started with a simple pencil drawing which I scanned and vectorized with Inkscape. Later I added shadings and details with Gimp.
Have a look at the workflow:
hours of work: approximately 25.

Have a look at the details:

It's beautiful and I especially like the sparkles. What I'd be concerned about is how it looks on a t-shirt, since from what I know most printers don't handle gradation and color variation that well. But maybe you're with a good printing company :D

Thank you, I'm glad you like it :)
As for the shirts: Spreadshirt and redbubble both use digital-direct printing, which is especially used for printing photos and multicoloured designs on shirts, so the gradiation shouldn't be a problem ;)

Thank you so much! :blushes:
Inkscape isn't that difficult to use. Once you figured how certain things work, it's easy ;)

Of course I used sparkles! It's a fairy wing, so it must be SHINY! :D

Would you happen to have a store on etsy?

No, sorry. The problem with etsy is that you must print and ship your products yourself and I don't have the time and energy for this at the moment. So I'm using print on demand shops only. You can order at my redbubble store: [link]
As far as I know redbubble ships from the USA, so there aren't any VATs or high shipping fees to pay.
Spreadshirt offers more various products than redbubble, but they ship from Germany.
Is there any specific product you're looking for?
