I made the white color of violence one, this is the only good picture i got of it before we tried to rescreen it to make the colors brighter (the picture is darker, the colors were originally very faint) and it didn't go well so

Jepharee Howard.:

its with a thing called Citro Clean :/ you print out with a regular printer the design you want then you spray it all over with this stuff and press it.

sadly its not like the most effective way of doing it and we tried going over it again but lining things up didnt go well so i got double the second time, i can wash it out but I'm choosing not to just to keep as a momentum.

this is how it turned out after a second pressing :/ ignore fatness me plz

no its just print it out, the white obviously wont turn out because its the Ink that bleeds onto the shirt, warning you now that its not a very stable way of doing it cause the results are very faded/light :/

I know XD its just important cause I got really disappointed with it haha.

yeah iron on turns out kinda creamish, this uses the INK from the printer, not a whole transfer its the ink that bleeds onto the shirt

they're really neat designs, but I don't think they quite fit the medium tbh because they're full of gradients and generally t-shirts are screenprinted, which works best with very few colors.
I mean, there are a bunch of shirts that aren't screenprinted, but screenprinting tends to give more lasting and better quality images.

I really do like the designs, though.
what'd you use to create them?
(I don't mean program or whatever, I mean like technique.)

^^ they're butterflies xD

and yeah I get what you mean, but with digital screen printers they can do whatever design and gradations can be done by hand, I'm making the pink/yellow one on Wendesday, of course it wont be a perfect gradation but i can get some cool pink/yellow effects =P

The Sonny one was hand drawn then gone over with a marker pen then made into a screen, using transparencies and then emulsifying a screen and burning so to speak the design into the screen with UV lights. the color of violence one was done with citrus transfer idk what its called but i dont like that method it doesnt work properly.

the butterfly one will be used with the same method as the sonny one.

if you meant like coming up with the ideas, basically these are band shirts so I listen to the bands and if you find out what they like and such it kind of comes to mind.

the butterfly from first to last shirt initially started out while i was listening to "Ride The Wings of Pestilence" it was originally melting/bleeding birds rather than butterflies but I decided i liked butterflies better.

the sonny one was while listening to his song Mora which reminds me of water and it flows sort of, kinda like a bird in a way.

WTFFTL shirt is basically cause the whole band really likes video games and the internet so it kind of suited it, in the beginning the design wasnt a computer it was a television but I later decided to make it a computer.

the color of violence one was kind of a fluke really, i looove that technique in painting so I decided i'd do it like that.

its usually me with a pen and paper first sketching out a general idea then building on it.
