Guys, I made a video process when I did this shirt, maybe will be help full for you!

Note: its the full process and my english is not very good, but I hope works for you!

we will cover: Half toning, prepare the files for printing, and some spanish!

This was great, I was going to ask you if you started with a sketch or not. I always love to see other people's processes.

I actually used more subtle colors on the lower harmonics deliberately as in music, for example, those tend to be harder to hear/less noticed. I will admit, I tend to like darker/more muted colors in general so it's good to think about kicking them up a notch or two.


blk909, chio, and dreadwood: thank you so much!

Actually, the topic is just science fair. Take a close look at the first line of the description:

"Let us harken back for a second to a simpler time. A time of elementary school, potatoes on toothpicks in styrofoam cups full of water, vinegar/baking soda volcanoes, and cooking hot dogs using solar power."

Thanks to everyone who has enjoyed this design, I'm glad you guys like it :D

glad you guys like it, kind of different for me... trying to do pretty! I got the idea from a company that does color injection for roses, they looked really cool and I looked up the process. Anyhow thanks for the support!

they were a comic first (i looked it up cause i knew they weren't a video game first, but i wasn't sure what WAS first eitehr lol)

and to put my two cents in otherwise, on topic, off topic, whatever else...i just don't wanna sport dead turtles on my shirt. other than being sad, i'm pretty sure i'd get beaten up by a lot of animal rights people out there.

Re: Blue Ribbon Appearance



Little disappointed in Woot.

My first entry " Blue Ribbon Formula... At Last!" got rejected because it "APPEARS to be more than 6 colors". I went back over the file... still only 4 colors in that design. Appearances can be deceiving! Thanks for taking away my votes.

So rather than removing color I added another. I guess it is an off week for the reject. Woot On!

Re: Experimental Fail



You know, normally I love jumping on hate trains. There's like this little me inside that says, "Yeah let's go piss in someone's Cheerios." However, I like to try to keep it objective (... it's fun resisting the urge sometimes). So on that note, I like this shirt. There was no phoned in nose or flying octopus birds. I'm happy. Ramyb did well here.

On the note of science fairs - This would have easily happened in my school. Most parents are too lazy to pay attention to their kids and few people screen middle school experiments because it is expected that parents helped them out and thereby rendered proper supervision. It most likely wouldn't be seen at a high school science fair since kids are hopefully smarter by then. (Then again, no child left behind).

On the note of animal cruelty - Yeah it's dead turtles. Innocent mistake or malicious intent? Well, I've seen a hell of a lot worse on Youtube, but should that really be the measuring stick?

Minus side, yeah it's kinda iffy.
Plus side, it's a cartoon joke, not real turtles.

It obviously does not promote giving turtles bleach / household chemicals. If it did, they would be happy, alive, and mutated turtles. Seems more like a warning to me; use this method and get dead turtles. Wearing this shirt will be like a public service announcement. I wonder if I can get volunteer hours for wearing it.

I'll step down from my soap box for the day. Once again, nice work Ramby.

Now 100% chock full of little wind-up robots!

Re: Blue Ribbon Appearance



Are you using transparencies? We can't print transparencies or gradients, you need to convert them to halftones. If you're not using transparencies then I'm counting way more than 6 colors here. If you are already using halftones then they are way too small to see, let alone print.

Yes, there are transparencies in the design. Hours of design down the tubes... because of dots.

Re: Experimental Fail



Correct me if I'm wrong (and I could be, this is an honest question) but I seem to see at least 7 colors on this shirt, not unlike the previous mistake with one of Ramy's shirts a few weeks back. The 7th color only appears as a subtle accent, but it seems fairly obvious to me.

The colors I see are:

1. White
2. Gray
3. Green (turtle's head and legs)
4. Dark Green (Shell)
5. Light Green (Detergent)
6. Light Blue (Halftone)

7. Black (used as an accent on the hanging weapons and also on the detergent bottle, as well as the letters of the tank)

8. Aqua-Green (Detergent Label -- I argued with myself over this one a bit, but it's a distinct color from the other greens)

Again, I could be wrong. Just curious. I suppose it's possible that the black might be an artifact as a result of the compiling the image into a jpeg, but the colors show up distinct on my screen.

Edit: And yes, I am considering that he is using the shirt color for the shadows on the shell.

Re: Punnett's Misstep



Wonderful execution.

I can't help but wonder (and I truly am wondering, not just leading in to my definite opinion on the subject) if the shirt looks better as per the submission, with the chalked square centered, or if the entire design were centered (including the flowers on the left).

I'm pretty sure your number 7. "Black" is either negative spaced navy blue (for the letters) from the shirt color, or the same gray (on the weapons) as on the cages.

Your number 8. "Aqua-Green" on the other hand, does look like a seventh color. That would also be a plausible mistake, since when he resubbed he may have accidentally used yet another green color.
