I like the depth with negative space. The birds lend it motion, the sun warmth. Very nice.

It's on deviant art. You could order a print... Also, no really, Art is Art - or so I thought. What does woot people feel is "wearable" qualities that they would like to see. Since I'm creating for an audience, I want to know what people like to wear on T-shirts. Not just have as art, to hang on the wall like you say. Thank you by the way.

It's not super-saturated, but to my understanding, this brown is a shade of orange. I guess Woot will make the call. I couldn't bring myself to use anything brighter.

Check out Legend of the Elipsicon! I made it.

I do believe I'm well within the guidelines, but as there's no chance of the design winning, it will hardly be the end of the world if the Rejectionator strikes.



Sadly, the BBC has even the image of the Police Box copyrighted, and Woot won't be able to print it unless there is obvious satire in the design.
I love it though and would buy it if it could be printed.

Well, first of all, there's not the slightest fear that this design will actually make it to print.

Secondly, how much "obvious satire" is in the It Came Out of Nowhere shirt that Woot have been selling for about 84 weeks now? Does pairing it with another movie's time-travel imagery qualify it as "obvious satire"?

These aren't sarcastic questions, by the way, but genuine ones.

Thanks for all the support, everyone - never expected to get more than 10 votes for my first week submitting a design (when frankly I can't design my way out of a paper bag).

Oh man this design is SO awesome! I'm a TRON fan and with the new TRON movie out, this has got to make the cut! It's been awhile since I've seen a design here on shirt.woot that I've really wanted to get too. This is the only shirt I'm voting for to help get it printed.

Each shade of grey would have to be it's own ink color, or you can fake a grey with halftones. Let's say your shirt was white and you wanted to make a 20% grey box without having grey be one of your colors. You'd make a box, fill it with 20% black and then make your halftones. What you'd be left with is a box filled with solid black dots, but it would appear to be grey from a distance. Same applies to your outlines, the black can only print as a solid black, so you'd lose all of your grey tones anyways. The best thing to do is threshold them and you'd have your solid black, it might look a little jaggy on your screen, but that won't matter when it prints. In your print ready art, each of your colors should be selectable with the wand tool set to 0 tolerance. Sure you can convert your outlines into a halftoned mess, but why would anybody want to do that?

I see what you are saying. So once I have the line art scanned in, I have it in a new layer on top of everything else so that the line art is on top? That being the case, can I use multiply on just the line art so the white drops away for the colors? Or could I somehow make the white space transparent? I've been trying to figure this one out. Thank you very much for the help.

Generally that's called "artistry" or "talent". It's rare here.

Well, for starters, there is a concept in that one. there is no concept to this one, especially since the clock is almost invisible. Even if it's not satire or parody, it is a concept. This is basically just the TARDIS.

This is an obscenely subtle orange, to the point where I think calling it orange is debatable.

I have figured it out. The answer is simple. Someone scans in their line art. for me, I couldn't scan in straight to bitmap. Which is fine, I didn't like the options. Better. Scan in grayscale. You're going to have white space on a white paper with black lines. However you get your blacks black and your whites white, do that to your liking. Then all you need to do is, when it's a grayscale drawing go to the channels and select the lines by alt clicking on the gray channel. Then with a new layer, fill with black. You will have every little speck of your drawing now without white for background, you'll have transparent. At which point you can clean up any points you don't want and you'll have line art you can work with with halftones.

Re: Ancient Chinese Fistbump



I like it. Good concept. There is but one thing that bugs me a little. I have crazy attention to detail and the tigers fist seems to be like a mitten. The line that curves up into the palm makes the hand seem all floppy. The dragon doesn't do that, but it's thumb is facing you so you drew it differently. Other than that small critique it's great!

mehehe. Galaxy Quest. Why it isn't toy story, I don't know.
I once drew a drawing that was fairly similar in concept. For art class in high school. I sat on a table and drew the round dish mirror in the corner of the room. I was in the reflection along with everyone else and the art room. You could see my art pad with the drawing on it. Nice shirt. I like it.
