The only thing is the way you have those diagonal lines the screen may not hold (in fact it probably won't) the image. Your making really thin lines of emulsion on the screen that can break down during rinse out after exposure or on the press. I'd make those lines thicker and resub while it's early

I like the shinies on the rainbow! Also, the fake orange is done very well -- great color use.

Hmm... I didn't really think they were that thin, but I wont pretend to be a printing expert. Regardless, I don't really have high hopes for this one to print, I just thought it was funny. Thanks for your printing expertise.

Never underestimate people's desire to have puke on their shirt...

No problem. Just remember that your making a stencil on the screen with emulsion that is very tempermental. With the line you made you are "cutting" channels to let the ink flow in and fill your diagonal space. What it's also doing is creating really thin long strips of emulsion on either side of it that doesn't have alot of surface hold, so after the screen is exposed the emulsion that stayed loose because the film positive blocked the light need to be washed off the screen. This is usually done with a pressure washer (though some low end shops just use a garden hose). That water hitting those thin lines can either blast them of entirely or push them so they become wavy and can fall off later. The reason that doesn't happen to half tones (generally) is the small dots allow the water to flow around them while long lines like that bear a greater force against them (think of a wind storm and holding a small umbrella versus a giant one, the giant one will have more push on it) Anyways, enough of technical stuff, keep doing your thing

Yeah no prob, just forgive all the spelling/grammer errors, I'm in a rush to finish some Harley-Davidson art this morning and I'm poking my head in here.

On the line technique, Sokowa used a similar line thing on her Raptor shirt and it worked great.... but she used thicker lines

BTW Boots, grats on your sellout today

Amazing job, you did such a fantastic job getting such a good use out of 6 colors!!!

But, maybe I am missing something, but where are his arms? Is it for artistic effect?

And congrats on the win!

I don't know how to draw arms. That part was at the end of my "How To Draw People" book and I never made it that far.

Or maybe it's just an artistic decision.

Thanks for the comments, guys!

One thing I learned from working in comics; If you don't know how to draw arms or feet or whatever, well placed smoke is your friend.

When you go to post there is a link under the text window "formatting guide". If you haven't seen it. That should help.

Woot thinks farting is in poor taste, but allows vomiting a rainbow?

I'd imagine this shirt would gather some rather quizzical looks...

Thanks everyone for the comments. I'm surprised this is still in the fog. I guess I did underestimate the power of puke.

I need this for the New Orleans St. Patty's Day Parade! Especially since there is a 48% chance I will be puked on anyway.

I'd agree the concept isn't new, but the design certainly isn't at all similar to those others.
Cute, twisted... Not sure it's my type of shirt, but at this point I'm ready to vote the hell out of it, if only to get the chibi gristle outta the fog.

My take on it and why I think it's different and yours is waaay better, might just be my view though. All those other shirts I see alcohol very obviously in the idea. With your design I see it as the leprechaun is puking the luck onto the unicorn and has nothing to do with actually being sick or alcohol induced vomit. But that's just me. Too bad as I would have loved to buy this shirt. At least I have my race for something coming in the mail!
