this one gonna be my experience to make a better thumbnail in the future.

thanks for your opinion and support guys, cheers :D



Just about every derby has a few jokers that make something simple like that, and the thumbnail looks very similar to those.

I know it's a little late for winning on votes, but if you resubmitted this with a thumbnail more representative of your design as a whole I'll bet you get way more votes.

The design appears to allude to the following famous work by M. C. Escher:



Now imagine a piece of paper with this image being mildly wrinkled and then stylized as the artist has done...voila!

p.s. why doesn't this have more votes? would a more enticing thumbnail do the trick?

orabbit wrote:Sorry to come of as combative. As a screen printer, it's clear to me that this would be a challenging print. The main issue is that a lot of your spot colors are 15% and below and 85% and above. A 50% halftone would have positive and negative dots or lines of equal size. If using dots, it looks like a checkerboard. When you have really small dota or lines, they overexpose in the screen burning process due to something called light scatter and undercutting. This means that your smooth gradient from 100% to 0% will close up at about 10%, leaving you with a hard posterized edge. And when printing, the fluid nature of ink causes something called dot gain, which means that 85-90% and above will blob up to 100%. Since a lot of your image lives in the fringes, it probably won't print the way you think it will. It would have to be done with more ink colors, getting into the dreaded and misundestood world of "simulated process". Here's a great video series to learn what simulated process really means. There's a real art to color separation, or else there's real expensive software ($800+). There are 10 videos in this series. Here's the first one.



As for outputting halftones from AI, most people use RIP (Raster Image Processing) software ($500+). In Illustrator, you set your spot colors to overprint in the Attributes panel if you want your inks to overlap. Sometimes I'll set an inside stroke to overprint to create trapping, or a slight overlap between colors. Don't forget your registration marks! This is all stuff that is at the discretion of the printer. You set your angles, DPI, and dot shape in the print menu, send it to the RIP program, and Bob's your uncle. It does the rest for you, producing sharp edged halftones, not pixelly ones like you get in the bitmap method in PS. It probably doesn't really matter that much unless you're doing 100+ DPI, like in offset printing or newspapers. I believe Woot just brings AI files into PS to make halftones anyway. And those PS generated halftones end up printing great - something which I had a hard time believing when I first got here.

What does all this mean? Screen printing is complicated. Woot may have rejected this and the other based on technical difficulty. It would be really nice if the Rejectionator would give a little more detail instead of all this conjecture and pictures with circles and arrows on the back of each one.



Thank you! I have not really appreciated the "black magic" associated with the printing end of the business, and all of this discussion has greatly helped me understand that.

Hopefully, I'll hear back from Woot to know for sure what the issue is/was, as well, so that - as you note - we don't have to rely on conjecture.

Thank you again!

Thumbnail doesn't match the comp.

Off topic.


Might want to read the derby theme and faqs to avoid rejection.

My speech is not parsing. I am speaking in ellipsis.

Re: What The?



resubmit from my first design with a new thumb, so people don't think is just the mosnter face on tee.

thanks for bluetuba and all community who gave me the suggestion to resubmit this with the new thumb.

Re: What The?



Yay, I hope more people give this a closer look now. I like it lots. I like the black & white and all the contrast, and the details like the blood dripping down the monsters front and on the man's shoulder.

I think their poses tell the story, the man is kinda standing there perplexed wondering what this stuff dripping on him is and the monster behind him is tense and excited about how he's about to snatch him up.

Re: Fire & Ice Resub



I have to agree that the design is off-topic. It's simply a stylized human skull.

If you had designed a clearly alien or monster skull that then was stylized, then it would be on-topic.
