    Default Valkyrie Art prints

    A friend of mine owns a tattoo shop here in Omaha and we've been talking about making some art prints of one his paintings for close to 2 years. 6 months ago we decided to get off our asses and get to work. This project was an opportunity for me to practice my separations more and do the whole thing myself from beginning to end. Its 10 colors. 18x24. Anyway, here's some shots of the final print. Thanks again for all the helpful advice over the years.....the Andys, Richie, Luther, Crosshair, Steve Walters. Lots of smart peeps around here.

    Hi. Looks good. I was wondering if you used halftone or dither for the fading/ gradient parts of the illustration and if so, what settings did you use. Thanks!

    I used halftones for this. I generally use 45-50 LPI at 22 degrees. Dither looks cool too but can be tough to expose if its real fine detail.
    There's a wealth of knowledge on these boards about seps and halftones if you search. Go premium and you'll have a better chance of getting technical advice around here.

    Thanks patoakes. I'll do a search. I'm new to screenprinting and I would like to know how to prepare a file while keeping the fine details. If you've seen Jay Shaw's work, that's the kind of texture I'd like to retain on the printed piece.

    When I've done dither diffusion in the past, I've tried to keep it around 187 PPI. What the printer can expose is shop to shop. Playing with the levels and PPI will change the look of the gradient. This is done in the bitmap settings.
