Re: Dragons Tree


bummer sorry to see it get rejected. you can still resub though. maybe try this page for the background color. http://shirt.woot.com/artists/
and post in your comments which ink colors you're using, ie: yellow & violet. mayhaps fill the body with some yellow halftones.

i recently got asked about halftones, if you'd like the info, here's how i've been doing it:

just do a layer in ps the solid color you want. make sure it's on it's own layer. then ctrl-a to copy all that. crtl-n to open a new page. paste into that. then adjust the levels the way you like it. then image/mode/grayscale. then image/mode/bitmap. go with the same output resolution as the page you copied from. I use 300dpi res on all woot subs. then use 30 or less frequency. that's a woot rule; must be 30 or less. and the smaller the freq, the bigger the dot! I always use 22.5 angle for anti-moire pattern. round. then... use your select tool, select the white, then invert to select the black, copy. return to your design page, paste and move it into place. then you can select and color.

hope that helps. sorry if it's overmuch an info dump!:/

Oh my, that's it! That's the trick. Using an angle of 22.5 for ant-moire pattern.
I thought there was an issue with the way I was resizing my smaller images for display, and I ended up trying to use ImageMagick instead of GIMP to resize, and it helped a little bit, but I could still see the moire pattern.
Turns out I was using the default angle of 45. I just retested with 22.5 and it looks great.
Thanks so much!

i was going to mention the 22.5 angle on odyessy's 'what, me pander' but it sounded like a gimp prog thing. should have mentioned it! glad you got a nice resize now though.
