Resubbing this one, as well.

It's not a photo. While my title references the Balrog of Moria, it doesn't resemble any artist's rendition of a balrog.

As far as halftones go, I've run sample halftones from the AI file, and they're incredibly straightforward. They wouldn't look muddy at all...

The close up parts look like its all half tones, that may be the issues with both of your submissions

What do you mean you've "run sample halftones"? Do you have RIP software? Did you print films? Did you then burn those films to screen and see that the 10% and smaller halftones exposed properly? Did you then print those screens and see that dot gain wasn't an issue above 90%?

It's a really cool technique - well done! But it appears Woot has told you they can't print it. I'm not sure what you hope to gain by resubmitting. Nothing has been changed, therefore a second rejection is imminent.

I think this is very cool artistically and would want it very much if it weren't for the horns. Somehow putting devil horns on Aslan doesn't work for me. Of course, without the horns it wouldn't fit the derby. I do hope Woot gives you a clear explanation of why this was rejected the first time around. When you know why it was rejected, you can try to fix and re-sub - but if you can't figure out why they rejected it, you're stuck. It's really too bad.
