I made Trials 2 t-shirt, since you can't order them from RedLynx store. It took about 2 hours of planning, cutting and making it.. Concept was that it should look bit like a dirty motocross shirt with cool Trials 2 logo on it. Here is the result;

I'd say it is pretty good (:

It looks really cool. Look a bit like my 360 logo.

Redlynx should make Trials2 clothes.

There has been questions asked that how i made that.

Well, I tell how i made it. First of all, i started to plan this shirt to paper and mind. After planning, i took Trials 2 SE logo. Then i resized it with photoshop to size i wanted. After that, i printed it out, and started to look for scissors. After i found them, i started to cut. This took lots of time, because i had too big scissors, and i didn't know how to cut. First idea was to cut all yellow away from logo, and i already had that ready when i realized that no - i want to cut just the letters, so i can actually paint the letters, and not just outlines.

After cutting process, i took my new t-shirt (bought for this) and arranged this just created paper stencil to right place. Then i added tape so it holds still. Now all was ready. I went to outside, and started to paint. This took also time, because i had to be careful to get just the right amount of "dirt" to sleeve (idea was dirty motocross t-shirt - this i think i mentioned already?). After this, just took carefully my stencil off, and waited shirt to dry. immediately after it was dry, i tested it on. It looks even better when its on. This whole process took couple of hours (well, more, if you calculate trips to mall where i bought shirt and paint) but yeah. And cost of this was preetty low too. Just new shirt and spray.

Now, after while, i've heard comment of that square you can see in shirt (it came from stencil. Stencil is the paper where i cutted the letters and taped it to shirt. And because it was still taped when i added the "dirt", t-shirt under that paper didn't get any. That is why it is much whiter.) Some people say that the square is too sharp, and can see too clearly. So now i've updated it, and sprayed little bit more "dirt", and the square isn't visible anymore.

Hope this was good answer for all those who has asked who i made it. Thanks for all, nice to get positive comments! If someone has more questions about this shirt, feel free to contact and ask!
