Post CafePress
I was going to put this in Initiative, but I think it has more relevance here. We're starting to get an interesting collection of artists here, some attention, some more interest in Midna...and, hopefully, Midna merchandise. I think it's about time we got another nigh-unthinkable yet very profitable project off the ground, and once again, we need the aid of the entire community.

For those of you who don't know what CafePress is, it's a place for people to customize and sell their merchandise online at no upfront cost. You can check it out here: http://www.cafepress.com . And this is where you guys, the artists, come in: we need artwork. Not just any artwork, but specialized artwork. Stuff that can fit on t-shirts, stuff for mousepads, posters. Make 'em unique, make them visually appealing and appropriate for their medium; remember that what you create will be representing the site (although it obviously doesn't have to have WANT MIDNA BACK scrolled in big letters across a shirt). Think about what you'd like to have in your possession and create it. That having been said, I'm going to be picky, so everyone who'll be watching these come in should be as well ;) .

So...your artwork can go directly onto this thread. Make sure you let us know what media it should go on, and put every ounce of talent and effort you have into these, because, as I said, we're not just going to throw anything up there.

If you've got any questions, post here, but otherwise, have at it :) .

On copyrights: Yeah, it's a sticky subject, but there is LoZ (and even one or two Midna) stuffs up there. I think we should be fine putting in tiny print somewhere on the product "Subject is © Nintendo" or something like that. If someone wants to help out with this but isn't up for Photoshopping/drawing/painting/etc., maybe they can look into that for us.

another thing for us artists, http://www.etsy.com/
a place for handmade things. There's a videogame section there as well, so Midna fan art could easily be found...though I don't know how many people would buy anything put there.

Ah, that place is for the pros. People just making the stuff from (near) scratch. CafePress just throws your designs on merchandise...I dunno if we're ready to put anything up on Etsy yet.

IMO: T'would be a plus, but I'm sure non-colored art would also be good.

Nah, doesn't necessarily need color. There's such a thing as a white t-shirt, you know ;) .

Alright, so we make some white graphic tees. Can we put shading in the design?

Why of course. :P
