Re: Imagination running wild


Reading sets the imagination running wild.

This is the first time I've tried using halftones in a design, I'm not sure how I feel about them yet.

For illustrator users how do you make gradients for complex shapes? It seems almost impossible with just using radial and linear gradients.

You can always use a gradient mesh instead of radial or linear gradients.
Also, you should play with the angle of your halftones. I find that a 45 degree angle seems to make them look better.

I typically work in photoshop, and I find that It is easier to make gradients with the tools it provides.

I like the idea and the simple shapes/colors...though I think this would've been made better by either more animals popping out or a tie-in to a specific book.

Thanks for the help, I never used the gradient mesh before. Looks like I have so learning to do before next derby.

I was trying to go for a subtle harry potter reference with the stag, Harry's patronus, but maybe the design needs a little bit more of a HP hint.

I didn't get the HP reference, but this shirt is beautiful!
