Sigh. I knew it was just a matter of time, but I couldn't resist the opportunity!
Dudicon wrote:I like the concept, though I would've preferred a gun instead of the mega buster, as in the box art. I also could have done without the year on the shirt.
I considered to put the gun, but I thought that, if I did that, nobody (even less people) would understand the idea of the shirt.
Thanks for all the feedback! it's very important to me.

Cool. That would be good. I just hope it wins here.

Next stop, apples marketing team. Make them sell these shirts. To awesome a design to not be printed and sold somewhere!

We must print this, dave
Re: 1988: Museum of Motion Images
Very impressive and sits well on the t-shirt as well. Awesome bells :o)
sodalite wrote:this is totally appropriate for 1990. as in the derby opening: "Find out what was going on in the world". the simpsons were an explosion in 1990, so this is right were it should be, imo. it's a really cool shirt, and it's surprising there are not more votes. it's great how it reflects a styling of the time and implies the picture.
Thank you sodalite
Okay...now why was it rejected this time? This is killing me.

That may be so, but that art is not using halftones as extensively as this piece with finer halftones due to lots of soft fades. These types of halftones are not what you want to print, they cause all types of problems on press with trying to align the base to the top layer of ink. Can you take a picture of the halftones on your shirt so I can see them? The detail shot woot had doesn't show them too well. Thanks

I does have a certain southern fried aspect to it.
Thanks! I'm glad I wasn't just seeing things!

Well I'm going to go out on a limb and say its because you used a trademarked name and copied a copyrighted logo directly from the movie with no alteration and no parody but that's just me

Okay. If that was it, then it's fine. I'm just not sure.
Any Canadian needs to up vote this since it has the Toronto Space Needle in it come on now!

Is that what it is called? The Toronto Space Needle?

That's using Photoshop, I'm assuming right? Any other programs you'd recommend, or is that pretty much the gold standard?
tjost wrote:Ok here's a little example I threw together to illustrate what I mean by inverse halftones. Let me know if you have questions.
Thank you for the explanation. Also, the ramyb tutorial j5 posted was extremely helpful. This will definitely help me with designing halftones in the future, thanks so much!
I had done inverse halftones on one layer for my previous print, Underwater Forest, and it seemed ok.. In general I use the method of converting the layer to bitmap/halftone screen because there is a lot more room for control.
Again, thanks for all the feedback everyone!! And thanks tjost for explaining halftoning for print. I definitely understand it a lot better now.
I love the evolution aspect of this! Good luck!
love it! I hope this wins!
I'm very saddened by this shirt not getting top 3.
maybe I should start voting for every shirt I don't want to buy. Because the last 10 or so shirts I've wanted to buy have all either just missed the fog or been in the fog but not top 3.
When did the Woot Community get jacked by people who like terrible shirts?

This would be a great way to subtly announce an impending paternity.

Maybe, to accomodate spits, the trucks need pitched roofs.

All of this taco truck talk is making me homesick. First place I'm hitting when I go visit "home" in a month or two, is El Antojito, in Gardena.
looks great; too bad about the color choice
Not rejected!! Keeping my fingers crossed:p
Like this art very much! Cool Style:0
Re: 1966 Beetle Revolver
Phew!! I believe I'm safe~~ * Gradients & Halftones
o Photoshop users, make certain that your halftones are 30 LPI or larger for a full-size design at 300 DPI.
o Illustrator users, please submit your final art with gradients. We'll create the halftones on our end.
o Each dot that makes up your halftone must be one solid color.
