    nice design – I particularly like the lighting effect inside the palms – specky!

  • Cheers buddy, shame the preview looks a little dull though.

    You have an entire movie plot in the palm of your hands with this one…

    Beautiful work…

    I think it looks better on the light tees when you can see the skull shape.
    Extremely well done!

  • Thanks Rusty. I planned it for black on black printing originally to add a bit of mood to the image.

    RE: halftones – we don’t really need them for gradient color on RB, right? Its cool it has become a graphic effect unto itself.

    RE:“analogue” — is the “-ue” suffix a British thing? I have a shirt called Analog Modernist referring to tape-recorded music and sound; is this correct usage? Wikipedia wasn’t much help.

  • Halftones are used purely to add to the ‘digital’ look for this. Us brits like to use the ‘U’ especially in ‘colour’ and ‘analogue’! Thanks for having a look.

    I know ‘colour’ from too much martin amis and Was not clear if ‘analogue’ was for non-digital + music-related, or just British spelling. I almost titled that shirt "Analogue Moderniste’ but that was going a little too far.

    Agreed on “digital” look – if it was just a smooth fade around the eyes it would not be as striking and machine-like.

    This is excellent (once again) RubyRed!
    I was around when video (almost) killed the radio star – you’ve made an astute analogy here with this version!
    I’m always curious to see what you come up with next!
    Nice work!

  • Thanks for you kind comment, I’m pleased the concept seems to have worked!
