I don't understand the che bit - is it a joke on people who wear che shirts or something else?

There's only one Che image you need, tbh:

Something like these? If you like them, I can fix up the details (or use another picture)

I did have this t-shirt not knowing it was political, originally a IWW graphic, but I chundered all over it after a night out. Classy's my middle name.

Er, it's originally a sports logo for Notre Dame.

I don't like the one with the giant Shreddie on his head, as per the existing T. The most common shot is the 3/4 right profile that George includes above, but I kinda like this more uncommon left profile a bit better.

Obviously, it's the head or face that matters here, not the body or the pose. As per the Durruti above, or the Che.

I did these

But I think these are probably more useful since I suppose that there shouldn't be a background color as that colour is just the tshirt

I'm going to do a version of just the head next but I'm having trouble thinking of what resolution is good enough to print onto a tshirt (I've never done any tshirt stuff before)

Print resolution is 200 dpi minimum (I prefer 300 just for extra flexibility), and images will usually print on a 12x12cm square, so you'll want an image of at least 2,400x2,400, preferably larger. Also I'm assuming you've done a trace in Illustrator there, might need cleaning up a bit around the edges (Illustrator doesn't cope well with subtle colour difference on the standard mono trace).

Yeah. Ideally it would be high enough res to capture the whites of the eyes, cos that's an important detail in constructing the face and the "look".

I think the little blank spaces on the shirt would look a bit weird on the shirt, so despite the Che one having the clothes only being the darker colour in these ones it would probably look better to use the lighter one as well so that it looks more like this

ocelot give me preferences tongue

And Bob Ray thanks for the help so far and feel free to give even more advice smile

I don't think I'll change anything unless someone says that they want some changes.

And iexist you don't want me to do anything for you in terms of durruti?

I really like the design of the T-shirt though is the image on #18 not a reversed image based in the way the buttons on his jacket fasten? Perhaps you know this or it is not important or perhaps Ukrainians do not conform to British fashion expectations? Many years ago I bought a tie-dyed granddad top with buttons, only to discover later I’d been in the ladies department. Sod it.

Crap, you could well be right. In fact putting the image into GIMP and flipping it, it looks extremely similar to the image George posted in #10. Same hairline and (almost-)parting and flash of grey at the temple on the other side from the visible ear. Only one of those images can be the right way round. I'd say the evidence of the buttons was the best guide.

weirdest thread to post spam in. Its a 2012er that you've just necroed. But I guess the spamming algorithm works in mysterios ways. Praise the program!

Since this is back lets talk cool commie t-shirts

Who cares about Durruti if we can have a CNT tram on a shirt?!

I might buy one of those 'iconic' Che t-shirts and print 'fucks Dolphins' under his inspirational face.

I have recently searched on amazon for a T-shirt with the image of the young Ras Tafari Makonnen printed on it. Surprisingly, to no avail. By the way, for anyone within travelling distance of Bath there is an 123rd Birthday celebration at Fairfield House on 23rd July. It is a restoration fundraiser for the House, which now serves as a community centre. I know its a long shot but you can't stop a man from trying.
