A little different version.

I still like black shirts. A lot. It's 61 degrees here right now. And July! Brrr.

Halftones are printable based on what I've seen done here before.

If there's any question, woot can view the print ready.

5 colors on black. Thanks for any votes!

This is beautiful. I thought I'd said that last night when I voted, but evidently not.

I love the way you worked in the halftones. Really nice effect.

Interesting, this reminds me of "The Silence of the Lambs" moth.

This is beautiful and has my vote as well. The line work and halftones are amazing, but there is one area that in the halftones that seems odd to me in the upper part of the abdomen between the wings.

The halftones seem to be almost uniformly symmetrical with the exception of this area. There is a horizontal "line" of lighter orange (running across where the wings meet the abdomen) most apparent on the left side as it is between two darker areas. As the line runs right, it staggers down in the middle then continues across. Was this intentional? Considering the detail this has, I am guessing it was, but it just throws me a bit.

Thanks for all the nice comments and votes everyone.

@earthart - now that you mention it, that area's bothering me a bit - figured I had spent enough time on this design and it was good enough. Probably not worth it to pull and resub this late in the game, doesn't look like a print anyhow.

It looks fine on the hi res art, just this size with the halftones seems odd.

What Omni said!!

Also, speaking of the hi-res view, any chance you'd post one for us?

Thanks much!

Nice tribute/hommage to Hannibal Lecter, my favorite serial killer. I'd want one!

Very sad that this isn't going to print this week. Please let me know if you do print it somewhere else - I'm in for two.
