  • 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.
  • I think that I'll save the world as a fun afternoon activity.

Re: tentacular trap


I really like this design but be careful in the future not to make details too small. It appears you have lots of lines (like the outlines around the fish) that are below 1pt. While that's fine in nice paper printing, shirts just can't hold or print that unless using an incredibly high mesh with really high newton tension and really thin thread width. That's something that would have gotten this rejected if caught. Also the halftone work appears to be really fine on the jellyfish, almost like you made it at one size then shrunk them down afterwards which artificially makes them smaller then woot print standards (this would have been highly problamatic on women and kids prints that are a smaller design). Final note the halftones that make up the rings appear to be non uniform in shape (they get kinda wonky), my guess is that you made them in photoshop then took them into Illustrator or some other vector program and did an auto trace at some point? That's usually the cause for the tone distortion. If that's the case careful on that too since woot doesn't like artists doing that, it causes distortions when printing. Again great job on the art though. I don't want you to think that I'm hammering you, I just want you to be careful in the future so that an unfortunate rejection doesn't befall you Cheers +1

thanks a lot, hat's great,your post is very usefull for me as i have less experience than you.And you 're all right about my working process (thumbs up).I don't know very well how to do halftones in illustrator so you're right i 'mm preparing all the layers in photoshop and sometimes there are distorsions.I will be carefull about all you mentioned in my next submissions.Iam in the process of simplifying things a lot so...
