there are only six colors from the pantone solid coated color swatches. halftones is the coloring technique you see in newspaper comics with the tiny colored dots.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Halftone

No halftones in this that I can see... maybe you were thinking of partial transparency? It does look like the designer might have used a transparent dark colour over the lighter ones, but upon closer inspection it's clear that just six colours were used, very carefully chosen.

Re: Good Vibrations


It's an amazing design. But I'm torn about voting for it because I wouldn't actually wear it as a shirt..

Not an uncommon problem <sigh>

Re: Good Vibrations


i think three things would make this stronger:

rotate the overall design about 15 degrees clockwise (to eliminate the static, flat bottom)
round out the top part of the wave (it's a bit too flat)
remove the sun or bring it closer to the design (it feels too isolated)

I was thinking transparencies. stupid 'halftone' is like a damn buzz word... when it's late in the morning, sometimes I mistype.... it happens.

Awesome! This an an excellent use of the six colors. It works so perfectly together, your transparency-look really works great. Best of luck, gmv!
