    I'll start with the picture called "The Last Samurai"

    Making rasterization test on illustrator. The image has to be enlarged 9 times. The drawing should not lose quality.



    After making several test achieves an optimal result for the line.

    good start - now rebuild your background colours - in this case you could posterize into 3 layers of grey, and then reintroduce your colours in the printing.

    Run the colours right under the black keyline, let it overprint all

    I could resize the image. Comparison between the real image and the enlarged image.

    Original size: 3000 x 2178 pixels

    Enlarged size: 9933 x 7016 pixels

    perfect, and easy to print.

    As you get into it (more prints in this style), you can break each layer up in dithered (stochastic) dots to show more shading/gradation.

    Mix lots of transparent into the inks. Print one over the other - don't knock out the under colours - this makes register easy and eliminates any misprint/white voids.

    Thank you very much for all that information. I am new to screen printing. Well this will be my first time. I'll do the best I can.

    With the support of you surely will achieve do good work.

    I increase the amount of colors. Now working with 8 colors. What do you think?
    Now it looks more dirty

    yes nice - now if you want to get trick, you underprint some colours, and then print lighter colours over them - this gives you 3 colours from 2, and so on. this takes time and experimenting to figure out....you have to be a screenprinter and work with the process/mixing colours testing combos to understand how to make this work.

    Go look at Farley Bookout's work, she has really figured this out. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...4290503&type=3

    Thank you very much for the reference. Screen printing is a whole world. Many techniques to learn.

    I made a variant with blue colors. It looks interesting.

    OK, quit fucking around with the art and get printing! It will look awesome. Don't be afraid to experiment with colours.

    You learn more by doing short runs of different things, than long runs of the same thing. Quantity.

    Go all Warhol on it.
