Re: Nyan's Dream


Ok, I seem to be completely out of the loop with today's memes, so I have to ask, what's with all of the poptart references? I googled to find something called Nyan Cat (a cat with a body of a poptart - huh?) with the most annoying song (if you can call it that) ever. Is that it? Because I still don't get it.

Yes, that's it. The original video has over 63 million views!

Not a big fan of Nyan Cat, but this is clever.

Heh, this is cute. Even if you had never heard of nyan cat (which it looks like some people still haven't somehow) this is still very wearable.

I hope that annoying song doesn't play everywhere you wear this... But it is cute enough to take the risk.

I NEED THIS IN MY CLOSET LIKE RIGHT NOW. ON A TOTE BAG. ON A SHIRT. ON A HOODIE. THIS BETTER PRINT. I WISH WE COULD VOTE MORE THAN ONCE. OH I LOVE THIS THAT MUCH.

Would it be possible to see a larger version of this? I'm really curious to see how you created the orange, green and purple colors on the pillow.

Yeah, I was just thinking the same thing.

I love this and it's super cute, but I'm not entirely sure that I actually want to buy a shirt so strongly meme-inspired, given the transitory nature of memes.

Woot: I'm in it for the monkeys.

I'm no expert but it looks like:

Orange = red and yellow dots
Green = blue and yellow dots
Purple = red and blue dots

If they were flat colors, that would be fine, but then on top of that there is white highlighting, as well as darker shading- there at least 3 colors of overlapping halftones going on there, and I wanted to see how they are put together because I've never been able to achieve that kind of effect without making the halftones extremely obvious.

Water it down with some white perhaps? he already used it in the stars, so mebbe he started with dark colors and broke it up with the white? Makes sense...

You've got my vote!

An amazingly original concept for something that's been overdone to death.

I really wasn't sure about the meme, but loved this shirt. I think the design stands entirely independent from the meme. But of course would be hilarious to those in the know.

I've never heard of it, but I don't spend hours on the internet everyday, plus I hate cats.

It does, in fact, look like multiple layers of halftones to produce the effect. I don't think it's all that hard to do, just do the blending using opacity to get the colors you want, then halftone them. you probably have to play with angles, but it should be no different than the 4-color newsprint process.

This gets my vote just based on the fact that you managed to put it together with the six color limit. Amazing work!

Yeah, so there's that...

I HATE Nyan cat with every fiber of my being but this is so cute that if it was made I will buy it.

Nice design, but doesn't the rainbow have some type of alternative connotation?

You are worried that the pillow is homosexual?

Re: Nyan's Dream


I have not been enamored (and have been slightly irritated at times) by the nyan cat, and although I love cats, I tend to get tired of their pervasiveness on the internet and all...

But I want this shirt so desperately it hurts.
