Re: Fractal Freebird


I don't actually know how to distress a shirt design, but I didn't want a big unbroken area of ink on the freebird design. So I put these swirls into it so I could remove those from the design (see here). When I was looking at the line drawing, I thought, "You know, if you colored each of these spaces a different color, it would make a decent psychedelic design." So I did. And this is what I came up with.

Six colors on brown: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet.
I didn't bother with any mixed tones.

Someone on here passed this tip along to me, so I'll pass it along to you...

To make a distressed texture, take a piece of heavy weight paper, crumple it multiple times, and then flatten it out. Scan that, then play with levels in photoshop to bring out the lines. Use that as your distressing texture.

Hope that's helpful!

Thank you. I'll have to try that.
(Although I have to admit that I'm glad I didn't know it for this derby.)
