The art is late, so I’m late for a day. But anyways, I wish everybody who celebrate this day a very happy Lunar New Year!
新年快乐！ 恭喜发财， 万事如意， 身体健康！
Anyways, today also marks my 9th monniversary with my girlfriend. Happy monniversary! :D
Remember one post I had quite a while back about flags of the world? Here I tried to print a customised T-shirt with that image. Those flags look really nice on a shirt.
I printed it A2, so the image is big and the flags have most of the details. But still I can’t expect for maximum detail as there are a lot of flags that has really tiny details that the printer can’t print. But overall I am very satisfied with the product.
The print is very flexible too. I used a direct to garment printing on this T-shirt in order to allow for maximum durability. That means no need to fret about the design cracking or peeling off. There might be a little fading, but that’s probably all.
I have uploaded a new art on my deviantART: Light Healer. It has been a long time since I last posted something in my deviantART. I feel bad because it looks like I abandoned the site, although I really wasn’t.
I did mention before about getting a full colour CG of my latest character design, and here it is. This is what I posted in my dA just in case you are lazy to click the link :P
I also put it in my Illustrations page.
Well it’s been awhile since I last draw something. I updated a character on my character page. For today it is Fei Gaolin, Fei Long’s sister. I actually had an artwork of her before, but I thought the design was a little bit dull and hurried. So I redrew the character.
I’m thinking of giving her a full-coloured illustration with background. So perhaps I will continue to work on this and I can finish it really soon.
So, yesterday I had an idea of collaging every flag in the world together, and here it goes. Actually it was rather interesting because for some flags, resizing them was rather hard, because not all flags are in the same proportions.
For the T-shirt itself, I just put some of my favourite illustrations altogether in one shirt. It’s not the most interesting design for some people I believe, but I like it as a representative for my artworks.
Here are other close up shots for the print. I must say the printing is really great. It’s very flexible. I haven’t washed this a lot, so I can’t say too much about the durability. I just hope it does not fade pretty quick. Since it is directly printed into the shirt, I’m pretty sure it won’t crack. I’m very satisfied with the result. Perhaps I will do some more in the future.
Here are the illustrations used for the shirt:
