2016 Pentax Forums T-shirt Design Contest

Update: the polls are now live!
T-shirt Contest Voting: Pentax K-1 Designs
T-shirt Contest Voting: General Designs

----------------------------

Last year's PF t-shirt designs proved to be a big hit, so let's keep the ball rolling with an all-new T-shirt contest for 2016!

2015 PF T-Shirt Designs

This year, we will continue T-shirt production through Teespring, who offer the following benefits over local printing:
  • Low individual shirt prices (without sacrificing quality)
  • No premiums for larger shirt sizes
  • Reduced US & international shipping costs
  • Delivery within weeks, not months
  • More payment options: any major credit card, or paypal
So, let's kick things off with the T-Shirt design contest. We'll have three winners:
  • Two general PF shirt designs - you pick the theme
  • One design related to the Pentax K-1
Each winner will each receive two free shirts of his/her choice and a Loyal Site Supporter forum account upgrade.

You can choose to enter any number of designs for one or both categories above.

Requirements and restrictions:
  • Important! Your design can't have more than 10 colors (preferably fewer) Avoid photos!
  • Your design must include the Pentax Forums logo. You may change the colors or make additions, but you may not alter the shape of the logo
  • You may not use any photo or work subject to copyright
  • You may use specific Pentax product names and product logos (i.e. K-1, K-3, etc)
  • You may not use the official Pentax logo font (type out Pentax instead)
  • Only the central area on the front of the shirt will be printable. We can't print on the sides, above the neckline, or on the sleeves
Please make your submission(s) in this thread. (using the attachment system is preferred; please have larger versions of your design available if you win)
Submission deadline: July 7th (extended!). Once we've closed to submissions, we'll have members vote to select the winning designs.

I'm very excited to see what you guys will come up with, and I'm sure many other forum members are, too. Good luck and let your imagination go wild!

I am not that good with photoshop, but I would suggest one design with the cutaway of the LX:



Done like last year's T shirt 1.

Regarding the K-1 I would use a similar concept using one cutaway as it's here:



With a rainbow arrow starting from the viewfind and getting out of the lens...with written Pentax Forum.

Of course you are NOT original, it's MY idea and therefore I SHOULD win this contest!

I created two; one for the K-1 and one for Pentax.

I know they are not very good, but I'm not that artistic of a person...
If you have any suggestions for slight alteration I'm happy to hear them!


*EDIT*

Both of these designs have been converted to less colours on my computer and can be converted to Vector very easily.
Their appearance is much unchanged.

I totally forgot about this, but shirts are limited to 10 colors max (preferably fewer, the 3-5 range is optimal). These designs wouldn't work unless they were converted to vector format (i.e. outlines of the lenses and camera). This shirt is a great example of a successful photo-to-vector conversion:
