I've recently discovered watercolor painting again, I used to do it all the time as a kid but then stopped for some reason. So I decided to give this technique a try here... this would need to be printed with simulated process, so please don't make comments about "too many colors" :)

Adore the tecnhique and style. Watercolors are such a SOB to use, so I applaud your skill. Not so sold on the imagry, though. The foliage is really sweet but weird monkey paintbrush guy bums me out.

oh, and i don't care for the monkey either, i think a cuter figure--child or person of sorts would be more appealing. but i LOVE the background. i'm a watercolor artist.

he he roadkill, it's true I like white tees. Thanks for the feedback everyone - I personally love this kind of monkeys and thought I was making a very cute character, an aspiring little watercolorist, sorry if he freaks you out :)

I love your style, colors, the trees (what an awesome jungle)... I just don't really like monkeys. Or, not this monkey, maybe if he wouldn't be so big...

Too many colors... just kidding. Cool.

Deodand, I think I'll do more subs in this style if I get some proof that it's printable, he he... because to be honest I don't fully understand this simulated process thing and what kind of designs are optimal for it.

Too many co....

oh, whoops!

Alas, i am a terribly big fan of the way you produced this and the images themselves dancing around on that tee above made with a paint style we all assume is for ages eight and below. Great work here.

I still can't understand why some people are freaked out by my monkey.. strange!

such a great design

the Flying Monkey project

This would be hardcore if it was done with sim process.
Basicly you break up your design into the main colours (so.. purple, blue, maybe green, black, yellow and red) and they print each one with a halftone to create the tonal difference and some of the blended colour.
This I think would look better on light coloured shirts so it shows that tonal difference (i.e. to print on dark they would have to add a white screen)...so rantting aside, pretty cool
