Model T-Shirt Display Images
While the cartoon T-shirt display does look good, it would be fantastic if Redbubble could trial the Model T-Shirt Display Images - Basically taking a photo of one guy + girl in slightly different poses (each pose represents 1 t-shirt colour) and using that as our display images.
I noticed that in the shop (http://www.redbubble.com/shop/t-shirts) there is a photo of a guy wearing a blue shirt but when you see the shop its all cartoon style, which I feel lets down the sales.
While I understand the depth and effort this would take, it will be worth it in the end as 'realistic' mock-ups tend to sell better - As the saying goes, "The more I can see it, the more I can believe it, and the more I want it".
How to do it:
1. Get a girl and Guy model
2. Take 30 shots of guy in one t-shirt in slightly different poses
3. Do the same for girl
4. Photoshop the t-shirt area and make duplicate images in different t-shirt colours
5. Do the same for 'back-view', hoodie etc

There is an app for my iPhone called "Body" which allows what you are taking about. It is limited in the number of poses. Something I would like to see expanded.
This needs to be done. I'd prefer ghosted mocks of the t-shirts over models, but anything that is realistic is better than the cartoon mocks now.
