Very Cute. I'd love to see a horse sit like that.

You know... I like the style and all... but I think the implications of what is about to happen is rather disturbing.

But after repeated complaints for Drakxxx's colors being off using those same comps, I figured I should just stop using my beloved comp. This one is simply a shadowed outline and I need to insert the correct color (supposedly eliminating the issue, but as we can see, it only makes for more questions.)



They both seem really off to me; the new one seems a bit too pale or pastel. What seems to be the problem with taking the eyedropper to Woot's official template? If the problem is the prohibitive file size, I can upload a smaller, more reasonably sized image for you.

Read the edited post above.
it's not that I can't get the color they suggest. It's that the colors are still wrong compared to what they mock up on print day.

Woot's shirt colours aren't pantone colours. They've given pantone approximates, but the actual colours provided in the official template (the ones they use for their sales comps) aren't pantones. That's why it's best just to eyedropper from their template.

That, or eyedropper from their official sales comps.

For some reason, these iguanas remind me of the iguana Simba was playing with in The Lion King right before the wildebeest stampede. Also, the overall theme of the shirt makes me thing of Lion King (aged iguana in the sky keeping watch over baby iguana). Therefore, I like this shirt. =]

Don't know if anyone else sees that, but that's what I thought of immediately, for some reason.

Outstanding design!

See... just one more reason... BLEH

I'll see what I can come up with. I shouldn't have to eyedropper it. If you give a Pantone color, it should be on (or as close to on as humanly possible).

A great concept and an absolutely stunning execution. The colors are great, as well as the large composition, and each figure has much character. I really hope this makes it into the fog, since it's probably one of my favorites this derby.

I was wondering the same thing... I am already depressed that it seems like I may have to wash the Pandora shirt 50 times to make the design show up...

I like the design, a lot... just not sure if it will show up well on the shirt..

Hmm... I'm not sure if what I said was misleading or not, but here's the post I was talking about (and it was a pain to find):

I need to correct you somewhat here. See, we didn't actually change the Pantone colors. The swatches in the templates are correct. The issue has always been finding a screen color that matches what you see on a swatch with what you see on the screen. Anyone versed in color management knows this is a fools errand really, what with different monitors, etc.

We've had a lot of trouble with Photoshop's (or Illustrator for that matter) approximation of Pantone colors. Barbara spent a good amount of time matching with a color corrected light and calibrated monitor to get these as close as we can. But I reiterate, the Pantone colors have not changed, only the screen colors we use to represent them.

Here's the list she has so diligently put together:

Navy #0B1C1E / Pantone 532
Baby Blue #9EBDE3 / Pantone 644
Red #C60C30 / Pantone 186
Orange #DC4634 / Pantone 7417
Olive #566423 / Pantone 5753
Brown #332B1B / Pantone 7519
Heather Gray #BABCBE / Pantone Cool Gray 6
Asphalt #3D434A / Pantone 432
Creme #F1E4D1 / Pantone 482
Lemon #FFF799 / Pantone 602
Royal Blue #2A569D / Pantone 7455
Kelly Green #057A49 / Pantone 3415
Grass #73AF55 / Pantone 7489
Cranberry #790B29 / Pantone 202
White #FFFFFF / White
Black #000000 / Pantone Black



So ok, pantones are pantones, but the hex values Woot uses to represent the pantones are not necessarily the values in Photoshop or whatever other program.
