(Shirt note: the pictured heart applique has the original designed ‘top’ with two seperate artieries of the darker fabric on the top. The final production design will have these two matching the main mid-range fabric as pictured in all other versions.)

SHIRT B

(Shirt note: the lightest blue here does have the same subtle texture of the other blues, but appears washed out due to photograph.)

SHIRT C

(Shirt note: the lightest green here has an almost mustard, or yellowish cast, due to the photograph. It is in fact a lighter green color.)

machine1

(Shirt note: due to the nature of the machine fabric, the textures/grades of lighter/darker elements will be completely unique per shirt and cannot be predicted or controlled. Originally on this shirt the rivets were the lighter color and I stitched over them with the darker thread, hoping for greater contrast. But the random nature of the fabric seems to make this effort kinda moot. It’ll be contrast-y in spots and not in others, no matter what color the rivets may be. Production shirt will go with the darker thread.)

SHIRT H

(Shirt note: the two larger dark blue fabric arteries going up and down have the fabric upside down. What looks like little blue trees should look like rain, and will be revered as such for the actual production shirt.)

FURTHER:

VEIN MADNESS

In the spirit of full disclosure, the image used above of ‘(in the dark) [shadows]’ is altered to show only lighter gray veins. The shirt was originally stitched with the darker gray veins (with bunches of them), and I decided that I preferred the lighter gray version of the veins (with slightly fewer of them). In the interest of not delaying any further to create an additional version of the shirt from scratch with the lighter gray thread I just stitched lighter over the darker color.

Below is the unaltered photograph and heart closeup.

There is a part of me, sadly, that likes the two-tone veins. But there is NOT a chance I am going to recreate all the above versions with two tone vein action and delay work on backer rewards any further. I will however, offer everyone the option of VEIN MADNESS, which will be a two tone vein stitching similar to the one above. If you choose the path of VEIN MADNESS I will do all I can to make awesomeness, but have no way to give a preview version. The VEIN MADNESS option is not available on ‘(in the machine)’ or ‘(in the dark) [pitch]’.
