I love making character t-shirts. One of my 14-year-old nephews asked me the other day if I would make him one. He decided that he'd like me to make Link, from The Legend of Zelda.
I started, as always, with a sketch of Link, his sword, and his shield. His shield was kind of difficult to decide which details I wanted to leave in and which would come out good in felt.
Once my nephew approved the sketch, I went ahead and made him out of felt.
I'll sew him down to the t-shirt tonight (my nephew wanted him on black). Meanwhile, my other 14-year-old nephew told me that he'd also like Link on a black t-shirt. So I went ahead and made another.
I'm getting ready to do Luigi for my niece. That one should be a lot of fun!
I've been thinking about making my sketches available on PDF, in case any body else wanted to use them. Would anybody be interested?
