Hi guys, anyone know how to create the atrowk for this, what id like to kow is

1. Is this screen printed or a process colour on seperates?
2. How would the artwork be produced if it was screened due to the amount of colours
3. How are the blends acheived?
4. Would the artwork be presented in bitmapped layers?
5. Could it be produced in one flat file with a red background and then be sperated at the printers end?
6. how would you produce that yellow mist in the backgorund? is it with the airbrush tool in photoshop?

thanks a lot Andy

i'd print that four color process on a t-shirt....or spot colors process...
the color blending that you see on it are halftones..process or spot will take care of that.

i'd airbrush that image too if only need one or two pieces.

4 color process and simulated process are different animals. 4 color process used c,m,y,k ink to reproduce full-color artwork. The inks are semi-transparent so you mostly print on white or pastel garments.

Spot or simulated process uses solid opaque colors to recreate the artwork. Depending on the design, you may need 6-14 screens to print it.

Thanks for that fred. I have some knowledge but its limited.
So, it would have to be seperated by the printer using software such as fast films, is that right?
So my last niggle is- I would prepare the artwork on paper then scan it in.
What kind of tweaking would i have to do? I take it the scan would need to be around 300 dpi?
I know thats relevant for print, but im not sure how relevant it for process colour. would 300dpi be suitable or much higher?
whats the dpi for process colour?
When scanned is there any standard setting or things i should do before I send it to the printer?
Is it best to save and send a jpeg for seperates?
Apologies for so many questions but once ive figured this out ill be good to go.Again thank you very much, this has been bugging me for ages!Andy

300dpi scan is fine. 200-300dpi output will work. Tweak it so that it's very clean and vibrant. Send in a flat file- psd or tiff or pdf is better than jpeg. The printer will choose the method they think will work better. Fred has had some great success with process prints, I like to use spot colors for simulated process. 6 in one hand half a dozen in the other.... almost.
