Re: The Solar System


Very cool! I suppose it works out well for the octopus that we don't count Pluto anymore.

Reminds me of Octo System, which I wish had printed.

This shirt makes me think of this:

Totally original, and a really fun, appealing style without going the cutesy-route. (Not that there's anything wrong with cutesy town, it's a great place to visit but I wouldn't want to live there.)

+1!

I would love to see a detail of the halftone used on this... specially the head of the octopus....

Re: The Solar System


It's very subtle (color-wise), and I think to someone looking at the shirt it may be almost invisible on all that black. I always worry about that stuff though.

Anyway, I'm holding out for the fusion dance. Sorry.

I agree, it probably won't print well.

The size/placement is just a bit wonky for me, but a great illo. Good luck - looks like you're solidly in the fog.

Pretty sure its not a halftone, it looks like they used a brush set to dissolve and sprayed in one place for a few seconds. That means its all little individual pixels that for the most part won't print well because they're too small (woot's not set up to do good index printing where everything is made up of small blocks of color laying right next to each other in a diffuse dither pattern). Still nice art, would make a cool poster.

Stunning and probably will, indeed, print well, so long as the pantones are right. I trust Doodle.

I trust doodle as well and it should print well except for the indexed pixels in the octo's head (to do it right Woot will need to use at least a 300 mesh screen with a good opening ratio to thread thickness at a fairly high newton tension, which they could do, but I'm gonna guess they run with mostly 180-225 mesh). I do have a little more experience with the technical side of printing then most here, but what do I know, you sir are the authority on all things printed, I bow to your great wisdom

Also this

Just a thought...

Neither of those is really close enough to the design here for anyone to cause a fuss. Plus it isn't as though Blizzard has the exclusive rights to designs featuring 8 limbed aquatic creatures.

Agreed, it isn't that close at all. Plus, its not on a shirt, plus they're not carrying planets or anything.

Would you kindly...

  • Congratulations on winning a Best Loser Award!
  • This is not SPAM.
  • Winning a BLA does NOT mean this shirt won't print -- I'm hoping it does.
  • Your one and only gift is this crappy little badge in your shirt thread. Enjoy.
  • See those girls they're heaven blessed -- I guess it's so they know best.

For the sake of this derby, I hope this was an over-zealous award. This needs to print.

Agreed. Best I can tell it's at least top 5, assuming no ridiculous jumps in votes in other entries.

Like it says in the fine print, "I'm HOPING this prints". If I had to limit myself to only giving BLAs to stuff out of the fog, some weeks would be pretty sparse...

Yes. We've had more than enough Cthulhu shirts on this site. Nothing wrong with them, but a design this original and stunning should stand on its own.

I dearly hope that this prints.

Re: The Solar System


this is an awesome shirt design and i would be the first to buy it IF the order of the planets would get fixed. i mean, it has the Sun, the 8 planets, orbits, but the order is all wrong. can this be fixed? if so, please do it and it will have many more votes
