    Default sep help, pleeeeeeeeeeease.

    So, I'm having trouble doing the seps for this:



    The color palette is dark orange, orange, yellow, red, and hi white with an underbase for black shirts.

    Tips, pointers and suggestions?

    do a halftoned greyscale version for the under print, then sep out each colour, use transparent inks on high mesh and allow the underbase to setup a lot of the tonal variations. I did something similar to a Darkest Hour shirt, 2 blues and a white underbase came out to look like 5 colours of blue. Goodtimes taught me that . .

    use Channels. and prep each spot color channel by using the Color Range tool.

    from that image, it looks like you could print that using 3 colors. A spot Yellow, a process Red/Orange, and a White Underlay. Four colors if you want to use a process black to pop the detail.

    So, I just need to keep messing with the fuzziness setting to pull out the oranges and yellows and let the underbase to the tone work?

    Has anybody ever seen a decent video instruction on intenese seperations in PS? I have seen a few, but they all contain super easy graphics with absoluetely no challenge.

    I have searched the topic before and found a pretty detailed thread from Goodtimes, but I got lost about halfway through it. I guess I struggle with the channels concept.

    Anyways, it would be awesome to see a "step-by-step" breaking something like the above artwork down to 3 colors.

    it would definitely be awesome to have some kind of Demo for all of us at a Flatstock, maybe during the API meeting or something. just a quick/good overview from one of the masters.
