Actually, airbrushing with a soft-edged brush results in pixels that are partially transparent. It's akin to a gradient, which woot may not be able to do.

This is a very good design. I love Disney, and Mickey...I am not ashamed...I want to be part of the college program they have. And again I love this...Walt is one of my heroes...and as someone else posted...It all started with a mouse.
Why oh why can't people see this amazingness?

The template gives you available shirt colours. For the actual design, you should choose from pantone swatches. If you don't mind, you can just use regular RGB colours and, should you print, woot will choose matching pantones for you - but that doesn't always turn otu well.

It's "old", according to the rejectionator. Sometimes they get by, but for the most part, portal shirts are rejected. There's a portal-referencing shirt still available from woot.

not sure how to fix it.
other than that what would you suggest i do to "clean it up"?



Turning up the DPI is not the way to go. Increasing resolution will cause the loss of detail and crispness of the design. You should create your design at 300 dpi on a 20" x 16" canvas. As for file size - I think it may depend on the colours in the design. My print ready files (PSD format) vary in size... most of the ones I've checked are only around 5 MB, but at least one was over 50 (which surprised me). Regarding clean up - the blurry edges on the arrow could be made crisper and the stray pixels around the blue portal could be removed.

Hope that helps!

[quote postid="2902415" user="gizmoduck1234"]It makes plenty of sense. The "artist" could have added his own personal twist on it...quote]

You've already tried to made this point. I don't see why you're repeating yourself, since you weren't very convincing last time. I also wonder why you waste so much time here, since you obviously have such a low opinion of everyone. That this tshirt seems to have so offended your standards for artistic integrity is morbidly hilarious.

What makes the shirt interesting is that it's a well done slightly oblique cultural refence. It's also simple, clean, and uncluttered. Adding alternate spins could also have made for a good shirt, but in an antithetical way. I'm glad it was designed the way it was, and my only concern is that too many people are going to buy it, and that i'll see it around town. I hate that.

Its a shame that i myself am a forum troll and cannot accept that i should be quiet about this subject .



Hmmm. Maybe you should take a second look at this shirt buddy. Its just four turtles and a vial of something. Yes its a parody of the TMNT, but it's DEADFROGS interpretation of that scene and not a complete blatant copy as you say it is. He added his unique cute style and the cool scratchy thing he does and added some humour in that cool upside down turtle.

I don't remember seeing that EXACT same thing in the movie or the cartoon. If you can show me this EXACT scene, the EXACT way that deadfrog has done it, in the movie, then i will happily eat my shoes, and maybe my hat too.

If not then kindly step away from that keyboard and stop going on and on about it.

P.S. If you don't like the way things work round these parts then please feel free to leave and take your futile arguments elsewhere. Or attempt to be nice to people.
Im sure the latter isn't too unacheivable??
Theres always a way to get your point across without ranting or being mean.

Copo wrote:A) Neither were parodies



I actually disagree - I think the Pikachu shirt was a parodic.


B) Pikachu is a specific character whose rights completely belong to Nintendo, and it is way fragging illegal to profit off of such.
C) Nobody owns the rights to turtles and vials; therefore no parody must be made when using the aforementioned objects.



Yes, because it's not completely obvious what characters these are. *eyeroll*


D) Don't vote. No one cares. At all. Nobody. Really. If you haven't noticed, it's been consistently the top of the hotness. It would more than likely take an irrational disqualification for this not to win. Without that, there's a really high chance it's printing. In which case you can decide whether to buy it, and, still, no one will care because, obviously, a whole lot of people who aren't you are already excited to buy it.



Yeah, they should really get rid of these discussion threads on high-voted shirts. ahuhu

in what way is it a parody? how does it comment on the movie? I'd say it's more like fan art, but for sale for $1000.

Don't bother. They don't understand. They'd just rather go into attack mode than address what's being said. I made a very clear point that isn't even being debated: It couldn't be more obvious that this is 100% NOT Deadfrog's idea. Even that shirt that was all Zelda references at least put them together in a scene that WASN'T in the original games. This makes that seem downright creative by comparison. I'm sure that's getting through to some, they just don't care. Others think that Deadfrog is very clever for using someone's ideas like this. This guy appears to believe that because the positioning of the turtles is different that makes Deadfrog's work "original" and not just schlepping someone else's work without adding your own commentary. Regardless of how well you make this point, they want a Ninja Turtles shirt. Let the babies have their bottle.

I normally don't post on here but you are kind of pissing me off. Where's your supremely "original" design that everybody is voting for? Right now you are kind of coming off like an angry little brat who has nothing better to do with his time than tear someone else's work down because he doesn't have any talent of his own. DF came up with an awesomely original take on something that is familiar enough for everybody to recognize. Guess what, a ton of people like it. So get over your petty jealousy and quit wasting everybody's time. Besides, at least its not five flowers down the left side of the shirt. Now THAT was unoriginal.
