The mad hatter contemplates the stars and the moon held aloft by a bat.

This is version 2 of this design. I changed some of the halftones to improve the visual appearance of the shirt.

Here is a side by side comparison. The new halftones are on the left.



Any comments or suggestions?

How small can you go with the halftones for woot to accept it?

I don't know if woot has made any definitive statements, but the halftones on "sky fishing" from the flight derby are pretty fine. I measured them and the biggest individual dots are about .040 inches or about 3 points or 12 pixels at 300 dpi.

The halftones I used in the design are based on a cell size of 10 pixes so they are slightly smaller, but I think they would still pass muster. If not I could easily reapply the halftones with a slightly larger cell size.

I'm guessing woot only rejects halftones when they are used for very large areas, or are used to replicate a four color printing process.

Thank You!
I haven't tried halftones because of the rules... but i see way 2 many designs with HT being printed. I am so new here that i don't wanna spend my hrs making a design and get "Rejected" slashed across my hard work. For god sake i just learned that you can lock the transparent area of your layer for coloring.
I have been watching tutorials on PS and inksacpe during every free moment i get.
I apreciate your response and youe design should definaltley have more votes in my mind
Thanks Lagbert
See u next week i hope!

Don't worry about rejections too much. You can usually rework a design to get around them. They can be great learning experience too.

I've been teaching myself inkscape too. It's a great program. Your style is very clean, so you can probably do all of your work in vectors if you want to.

Thanks! I'm surprised you don't have more votes. I think your thumbnail might be working against you.

Good Luck!
