Pat Tillman Sig Wanted

Postby joejlitz » Sun Mar 15, 2009 5:46 am

Anyone who has some time and the inclination:

Not even sure if this is possible, but I'm looking for a sig of Pat Tillman, in his Army uniform/combat gear, carrying his M4 in the mountains of Afghanistan. Somewhere in there could be the US Army logo and I'll think up a slogan for the sig if someone decides to take this on.

I would really like this to be a tribute to him and a reminder to the rest of the cafe that there are still over a hundred thousand members of our military forward deployed.

Airborne Ranger Tabs (little smaller than the Army logo - I think)

An American flag of your choice

Slogan - To be determined - still thinking about it

All of this may be a little crowded on a sig or it may just be impossible.

But I think at least the first 3 pics should be doable, huh?

That is a really cool pic flots, it's just too small though.

Also Joe the link for the first two pics is the same, they are both links to the statue pic.

My bad:

Try this one:

or this one:

Whichever one looks better in your opinion.

OK just a couple things...

1. Tracing and clipping around hair is just about the hardest thing to do, having it look good is VERY difficult. I'll try but no promises, If I can't I'll just find an image myself that will work.

2. I can try to put all the various images you want in there but it may be tough to do and have the quality still be high. Again I'll try my best but if not I'll take some liberties in the name of art. :-B

Definitely take liberties where you feel you need to. Least important images are the Army logo and the Ranger/Airborne logo. The flag is important and the two of him and the background. This sig is in your hands and I trust your artistic expertise. I'm also grateful to you for giving this a shot.
