Well, my birthday is coming up and what I've wanted for years is a Princess Bride T shirt! So I find the one I want, this one to be exact...wear-it.net/princess-bride-lad…
but it's put of stock everywhere I look, and the price is ridiculous! So what I decided is that I would make my own dang T-Shirt!
I used this this picture from the movie,theother87.files.wordpress.com…
cropped it so that it was pretty much only Westley's face in the picture, enhanced the contrast, then used Gimp to select different shades of grey, and put the parts in layers from lightest to darkest. Then what I did is selected everything in each layer, an filled it with the light blue color. Then I just changed he transparencies of the layers against a navy blue background (as reference because that's the color of the shirt I'm gonna get) so the layers with the least transparency look darker. It ended up looking like this...sta.sh/02a4cyvuzcaq
which is cool, but Gimp done Derped up in some places, because there were random dark pixels, so I imported the image (sans background) to my phone and used Artstudio to fix it. Then I finished the design in Artstudio and you have the finished version!
Without the background, it is only three colors! And I checked how much it would be on the website I'm ordering the shirt from... Only 14 dollars!! The original shirt is like 25! And I ended up liking my custom design better! Yay! So what do you think?
Its My Birthday Gift to Me!!
