Morbidly hilarious. But certainly a fitting end to the Nyan Cat

I'm impressed by the color blending you've done here with your halftones. Any chance you could supply larger views to show you did it? Usually my attempts at doing that fail, so I'd be interested to see how you did it.

It is fairly straight forward.
In screen printing, you want to print darker colors on top of lighter colors to get good coverage. With that in mind I painted blue on the layer above yellow.
then, on a new 50% opacity layer, using the same blue, painted on top the yellow.
Same deal the the red- on a new 50% opacity layer, using red, I painted on top the blue.

The result looked like this


tgentry wrote a great tutorial that should help you with turning this into halftones

This was the result


it's also worth noting that I had all of the layers for the puddle in a group with a layer mask the shape of the puddle. That way I didn't have worry about how the colors overlapped and could work pretty quickly.

@sombrillo
Thanks! It's really not all that impressive, not compared to other entries this week, but I do appreciate it.

@xpenguin:
GRATITUDE

@:cherrybear
ALSO GRATITUDE

@Narfcake:
Oh, yeah. I remember reading of his passing.

@globalbee:
My knowledge of taxonomy is a bit rusty, but I think Nyan cat is more closely related to Honey Buns than to house cats.

The execution is cute, but I'm just so bewildered as to why another CAT would eat Nyan Cat that I'm just... scratching my head and feeling sad. :/

Thanks a lot for that. I tried doing a nyan cat design in a similar fashion with the halftones, but they looked nowhere near as crisp as yours. I might have to go back and try again with those tips in mind.

Color blending is always a pain for me, so I wonder if it's a matter of not overlaying them right (or also picking hues that don't blend right)

Thanks again!
