it looks a bit too shiney for me....look almost plastic or starched IMO, but hey you asked, and you probably should have started w/ a darker base color....like olive drab or a darker brown, b/c the light colored shirt is gonna overtake anything you put on there if there are gaps

Yes, I agree on both points. As far as the base color goes I did want something darker. I looked for awhile and couldn't find anything I really liked that was 100% cotton. I was also excited and in a hurry to get started so I just went with it. My hope is that if I break it up enough it may do the job. I'll just have to wait and see. As far as the shinyness *sp* I noticed that as well. I didn't realize it was going to be that way until I already had it on and took a pic with flash (which is what you see reflecting). I can only hope that it gets dulled down when I wash it. Other similiar iron ons have dulled after I wash them so we'll see what happens. Either way thanks for the input I think they're both right on the money.

Isn't it going to be stiff if you put it all over the shirt? I would go with a dark blue to get the sky element in and do your "Photoflage" on top of it. Maybe a dark green or darker brown shirt would work to. That would pick up the tree element as well. But I really like the design on the shirt. I too wouldn't mind having one of those. Taking orders????

Hmmm...maybe I'm on to something. Actually, I would be happy to make these shirts if someone was honestly serious. Problem is that the iron ons aren't cheap. I believe this entire outfit will run me about 55 bucks in materialstill it's all said and done. The shirt will probably be 25 bucks in materials. I wonder how all of those other guys got into production? Did they pay someone to manufacture it for them in the beginning orbuy the stuff to do it themselves? Maybe I'll have to look into that after I get it refined. LOL
