Got some decent screencaps of the box and went to work. After careful consideration, I recommend:
- The pink shirt if at all possible,
- Light blue if not,
In that order. Other colors clash nastily, and/or have poor contrast with the colors of the art. Even as is, the “Misuta Supakoru” (blue) text is hard to read on the darker shirts.
The nitty, gritty,
dirt band graphic details:
Found moderate-res reference material. Took screencaps. Corrected screencaps. Sampled RGB values. Had to completely hand-draw the text, and correct the misspellings, lack of accent marks, proportions, etc. Tried to find a balance between the cel art and ‘real’ Japanese. The background starburst is asymmetrical in the cel art; mine is not, or rather, was not, but has been tweaked slightly in an unnoticeable way, I hope, to try to line up certain lines and ‘landmarks’ while keeping mostly equal proportions of the ‘rays.’
