Sigh. I knew it was just a matter of time, but I couldn't resist the opportunity!

Thanks and Gig'em.

I considered to put the gun, but I thought that, if I did that, nobody (even less people) would understand the idea of the shirt.

:/



Thanks for all the feedback! it's very important to me.

Cool. That would be good. I just hope it wins here.

Next stop, apples marketing team. Make them sell these shirts. To awesome a design to not be printed and sold somewhere!

Thank you sodalite

That may be so, but that art is not using halftones as extensively as this piece with finer halftones due to lots of soft fades. These types of halftones are not what you want to print, they cause all types of problems on press with trying to align the base to the top layer of ink. Can you take a picture of the halftones on your shirt so I can see them? The detail shot woot had doesn't show them too well. Thanks

Well I'm going to go out on a limb and say its because you used a trademarked name and copied a copyrighted logo directly from the movie with no alteration and no parody but that's just me

Okay. If that was it, then it's fine. I'm just not sure.

That's using Photoshop, I'm assuming right? Any other programs you'd recommend, or is that pretty much the gold standard?

tjost wrote:Ok here's a little example I threw together to illustrate what I mean by inverse halftones. Let me know if you have questions.



Thank you for the explanation. Also, the ramyb tutorial j5 posted was extremely helpful. This will definitely help me with designing halftones in the future, thanks so much!

I had done inverse halftones on one layer for my previous print, Underwater Forest, and it seemed ok.. In general I use the method of converting the layer to bitmap/halftone screen because there is a lot more room for control.

Again, thanks for all the feedback everyone!! And thanks tjost for explaining halftoning for print. I definitely understand it a lot better now.

Re: 1986: An ASCII Odyessy


I'm very saddened by this shirt not getting top 3.

maybe I should start voting for every shirt I don't want to buy. Because the last 10 or so shirts I've wanted to buy have all either just missed the fog or been in the fog but not top 3.

When did the Woot Community get jacked by people who like terrible shirts?

Re: 1966 Beetle Revolver



Phew!! I believe I'm safe~~ * Gradients & Halftones
o Photoshop users, make certain that your halftones are 30 LPI or larger for a full-size design at 300 DPI.
o Illustrator users, please submit your final art with gradients. We'll create the halftones on our end.
o Each dot that makes up your halftone must be one solid color.

PEACE OUT
