Hello X-Freaks,

there will be an X-Freaks T-Shirt which you can order soon.
So you can show all people and all X Japan fans all over the world that you are a supporter of X-freaks! Fuck yeah!

And if you do not want the t-shirt to look like this, then get involved and post your own design until 31.08.2018 // 2018-08-31 // 08/31/2018 in this thread



Then we start a poll among all members and choose at least the one with the most votes, maybe also the design, which takes second place.

The file format does not matter. We will do vectorization later. The other conditions are not so important at first. Important is your creativity!

It would be best if the design were monochrome. This allows us to push the printing costs enormously. Two to four colors is also acceptable. But please no photo collages. That's it for now.


We look forward to your ideas!

I'm really curious what the artsy people on here will deliver. And I'm glad I could help nb with the production of this beautiful example for a shirt in paint :D :D :D

Hey nb, by no photo collages do you mean no photos at all or is one photo ok? What about multiple shirts with 1 photo on each or is that too many?

Sometimes our tears blinded the love
We lost out dreams along the way
But I never thought you'd trade your soul to the fates
Never thought you'd leave me alone

Hi LEMONedMe,

thank you for your question. Maybe I havent said it clearly. I have to apologize.


Photographs usually have very many colors. That in turn is harder to print and therefore more expensive.
In addition, there might be legal issues because the image was either not shot itself or the person in the photo could see their personal rights violated.

Therefore, it is better to completely do without photos.

(There are really cool X Japan T-shirts with 4-color photographs as well, Kasumi has one, maybe she likes to post it ^^)

Hmmm.  ok.  This makes it more difficult in a way.  I was thinking of black and white images of band members.  And using filters and effects to change the way the photos look to make them look like artwork rather than a photo.

I understand a little about 4 color process for doing t-shirts as my ex husband used to design t-shirts for Vintage Guitar sellers.  So I know, much more expensive with colors and more than 4 but even 4 and they have to be specific colors, I believe, even within the 4 color limit so that was why I was going to go with black and white.

I understand what you are saying about images and copyright on those, too, so you are probably right that it's not a good idea.  Now I don't know what to do.   :D  :D :P

Basically, someone with good drawing skills needs to design a nice X-Freaks logo ;)

I'm nowhere near that talented, and I suck at digital drawing.

Hey Teemeah and matsumoto,

you don't have to draw something digital. You can scan it and we work on it. That is really not a problem =)

I think it is more important to just get involved. Maybe your art inspires others and we end up with a really beautiful design. I will try to do something too (even though I'm not good at this at all).

@matsumoto: yes please include Alpaca. :D Thats an awesome idea.

I will give it a go! I have a few ideas I just need the time to do it. I could try something hand drawn.

Great, great idea!!  ;D I've got too much time in my hands right now, so I'm going to try to draw something today. I can't make digital art, so it's going to be hand drawing.

Ok, so I just took a picture, because I just want to show you what I thought would be cute.  ;D

damn,
this is really cool!

Hide and Taiji are in heavon and holding the banner. I like it very very much.
If this doesn't fit on the front we can put hide with the banner on the back.

Maybe because Alpaca disrupted him (in London) ? ^^

Yes, I wanted to include everyone(even the alpaca), that's why there's so much going on there haha. That's a really good idea, putting the banner on the back!

Yes, Yoshiki looks pissed, because of the alpaca! ;D Come on, that thing made him mess upp Endless Rain! But I wanted to include it, so I put Yoshiki on alpaca's back. He wasn't happy about it :P

Thank you everyone for the nice comments!

Hey sasasama! This is so cute, I don't know what else to say.  I can't come close to this cuteness with digital.  I just love it to bits!  :D
