Katawa Tees

Hello fellow KS fans. This is my first fan-work post on the official forum. I've been working on a fun mini project of mine. I've been designing some tee-shirts that depict some of my favorite characters. My ultimate goal is to create shirts of each of the main cast of characters. (And maybe even find a way to share these shirts with all my fellow fans. With developer blessing of course)

UPDATE: I now have a storefront where people can get their own shirts! All the shirts are available here.

Here's my Tumblr post that includes images of the handful of designs I have already produced ... ick-person

I've made shirts for these characters so far:

Rin - Jelly Fish quote *
Hanako - Gotta go do something quote *
Emi - Lemons *
Lilly - Won't you stay?

These characters I have a good idea of what they will have for their design:

Misha - Stop being stupid Misha quote
Hisao - Master of Romance
Kenji - Manly Picnic?

Checkout some of my other work to get an idea of my style. It really pays to be a cartoonist:

If you made the artwork on them, go ahead. If it uses game assets, no. A few people have done pins and stuff with their fanart, like rtil, and that's absolutely fine.
If you use a website like redbubble, you can upload your art, set the "Profit" to 0, and as such redbubble takes their cut for making the shirt and sending it to anyone who purchases it. Much easier than making and sending it yourself.

I really like the quotes though, I'd probably buy an Emi or Rin one.

I'd consider a Rin one if her face didn't look so...weird, in a very un-Rin-like way. If her eyes were closed, and her mouth was in that serene half-smile that she does, that would have worked better, I think.

I went in expecting some deep thing about running with Emi's shirt, and came out giggling like a schoolgirl. :lol:

I'd wear the heck out of that.

Given my preferences for what somebody once called 'melodrama'…

Lilly: "Just this once… let me cry…"

Shizune: "All I wanted was to… make people happy, I think."

(Brushes dust off) Time to start this up again.

Hello folks! I'm posting here to say that I will be starting a Society 6 account soon to sell some of my works. My Katawa Tees included.

Some of the shirts have gotten slight tweaks to make them look more, "attractive?"

I took Dewelar's criticism and went back to change Rin's face.
Have a look:

Hope to update more soon. Time to get that Lilly design done.

Hooray for Lilly designs!

I'd totally promise to buy one if I could afford to keep that promise =\

This really looks like shirts I would wear almost every day! If only there was one with Rin saying "The problem must be in your pants!"

The Lilly shirt is done! The quote for this one is from a much different source.
