HEY, so last few days I have been trying like hell to finish my best friend\‘s design for his dance crew. If you are at all familiar with MTV’s America’s best dance crew, and the group Supreme Soul they are from the bay, in fact my best friend is cousins with one of the guys. Not only that but they all practice and stuff together. This next season his crew will be going for a shot to be on the show, and I have been asked to design their stuff for em. So out of the bland wash of Impact text Tees, I am trying to create something a little more unique that combines the culture of the area together well. This design will be put on shirts etc, though not through redbubble most likely at this time we are looking to actually open up our own place out here, following in the foot steps of Invisible Stripes out in Daly City who made most of Supreme Soul’s shirts and jackets. But also taking not from very successful contemporary urban stores like Upper playground.
So here are the praliminary lines. It is not set in stone to be used by them till I get the word back. Colors are almost done, it it just this is the LARGEST resolution I have ever worked in. The actual size of this image is 7000×11000 pixels at 600 DPI… and I working on an old ass computer so it slows down every so often or needs a restart to wipe the memory. Good thing is the reproduction will be fantastic on it.
The whole theme of the picture is to think with your heart, and dance with your soul.
There is still some lines that need to be added, but I have to go to one of their dance practices to find the perfect pose to use for the dancer that will be located on the end of the tongue. Trying to find an iconic pose that represents their style.
Sorry this is soo large, it is 20% of the original size.
Let me know what you think though.
