    Went through some screenprints and lithographs from my printmaking class a little over a year ago. Mainly for that, I'm not making a thread for them, though I suppose they do represent my current skill level, particularly with design, about as well as anything recent I've got, so crits, at least on that aspect, are still welcome. I gotta say, though, that it's a bitch trying to get really saturated ink colors to scan well; I had to do some major adjustments, and even then, the colors aren't all that accurate.

    Nice to see a fellow printer's work Craw - good stuff!

    A couple of things which you could have approached differently with the above.

    I presume you didn't plan to have the red or blue show under the edges of the black?

    What you could have done there is print only the red and blue shapes on the red and blue layers, and not duplicate the design printed in black -- except, to make registration easier, you would make those shapes a tiny bit larger than the space they fill inside the black outline (in Photoshop terms, you would Select > Modify > Expand by, say, 3px or so). -- that means you would have the edge of your shapes extend about a third into the thickness of your thick black lines, and not right up to the edge as they are in your print.

    That way, when you print the black it actually overlaps the edges of the red/blue shapes and is a bit more forgiving if your registration is slightly off, and you don't have to be exact within fractions of millimeters.

    This is known as trapping and is very useful when printing by hand (clever automatic presses are FAR more accurate, so you don't always need to trap your layers... but it certainly doesn't hinder the process). Sometimes, of course, you want to go for the 'off register' look and not control things so tightly.

    Hopefully that made sense (if not, I'll whip up a diagram)!

    It is likely that nobody understands what I'm on about at all here. o_O

    I got it, I'm still a semester away from getting any screen printing classes but I've done similar things with stencils and spray paint for the same reason.

    It's also one of those terms I hear about a lot - but except for screenprinting or handprinted stuff - I'm never sure where it would apply.

    No worries, it made sense; I'm familiar with trapping. The couple of main reasons I couldn't employ it here is because part of the assignment was that it was to be a reduction print, and then secondarily because this was all manual (which doesn't entirely prevent one from trapping, I realize, but it was an introductory printmaking class, and they didn't go over how). I really want to build my own screenprinting rig, so I can experiment with stuff like trapping, and practice things like registration (which, as you can see, needs work), but it'll have to wait until I have some scratch.

    [tiny]Incidentally, that other print was also registered by hand, which I'm pretty proud of (I couldn't trap there, either, because the colors weren't opaque, and the tiniest overlap would show (and did, in a couple less successful prints). Still would have liked something a bit less...jury-rigged, though.[/tiny]

    Didn't draw the original sketches for these. A guy I knew my first semester of college had some pen and pencil sketches up on his DA so I've been playing around with them. The first one I did back, man, about 5 months ago, so I'll probably never finish it. And, yes, I know that a lot of the rendering is pretty shitty. Especially around his chest. The second is just a WIP, been doing it after work the past two days.

    Ah, for a reduction print, you've actually approached that very well. I've never actually done one myself but they frequently seem to be taught at print-making classes. Personally speaking, I think it's because it's quite an easy concept to teach but once most people get into multi-sep printing, they don't go back to reductive. It's a bit too restrictive.

    Re. the registration on your other print -- that's some really nice work! Transparency of medium is actually something I take advantage of quite a lot by layering -- as you can see here where I printed red over the grey to effectively get two shades of red on the roses:

    >_> Well, like I said, I'm just drawing over my buddy's doodles. I did the colors for both, and inked the bottom one.

    So anything in the composition or foreshortening department in this case isn't really mine. I would like to say that those sketches I had in the Limp thread were a lot better with foreshortening though, so if you were also referring to those I'd take the compliment. Otherwise, you'd have to 'grats my friend.

    Here are the original sketches I was going over:
