women's tee shirt design... we have a winner!  Reply with quote  

Well ok, it's not really done, but this is it... once it's done, this will be it I mean.

Peep game, as brought by WerdSalad:


and
http://images.google.com/images?q=tbn:fYtkUxCQrkekDM:http://web.nwe.ufl.edu/~sullivan/butopia/calibrator.jpg

"The “Beauty Calibrator” was designed by Max Factor to measure the face to discover what was “wrong” with a client’s face and how they needed to use his make-up to correct the flaws. HahaHA!" -Werd

Aww shit. This has made the patience worthwhile. If someone can do a stylized version of that image up there we are in business. The shitty part is I can't find a version of that image large enough to work with at the moment...

But, here we are. "A designer cage is still a cage".

Let's do this! cmon! I will walk your dog for you! Don't believe the anonymous confessions hype! Axe about my appreciation packs! They are flavor! I sent futuristxen broccoli seeds!!!

For real though, thank you to everyone that has helped out so far with this one... it's been the toughest yet. We've gotten good ideas in that will show up somewhere else probably... but nailing some gangster shit down for the ladies has been difficult.

I'm not him, but you should give him something vectorized and scalable. It'd be a shame to have pixelation or artefacts.

Jesse's right...
.ai or .eps file would definitely be the way to go...
If not a .psd format would be good, and make sure the document size is exactly the same size (or bigger)as the final print size...Resoultion of at least 300.. 600 would be even better,

its too bad cuz when you actually search google images for "beauty calibrator" there appears to be that pic buts its about 300 by 500 pixels. But when you click on it it says "file not found". poop. That kind of size would be a lot easier to trace than the one we have.

Its gonna be pretty hard to make this vectorized without having to just take some guesses while doing it. However maybe that won't matter.

What I'm getting at is there a better/different way to find images on the internet?

man... i've been looking for a better version of that picture online but don't know if i'm gonna find one. i'm fairly sure, however, that the picture is in this book:
http://www.wellcome.ac.uk/doc_WTX022517.html

if no one finds it pretty soon i'll order a copy and scan it in...

on a quick search:










don't know how much good that does you. i imagine you've already found that on your own though. can't find any bigger ones just yet, but i'll keep looking

edit: also, as i'm sure you've found, the device seems to have ended up in the hands of the Hollywood Entertainment Museum (http://www.hollywoodmuseum.com/)
it might be worth emailing them and asking for a couple pictures of the thing

If this pic had been just a LITTLE bigger I could've done more.



I'm gonna play with it and see if i can get rid of that artifacting.

EDIT: Nothing on istockphoto.com or comstock.com, either.

EDIT: Just to explain... I found this by using google image search. First I looked up Beauty Calibrator and saw the thumbnail of this on the first page. So I clicked, but that file can't be located. I wasted some time on Archive.org looking for old copies of that page (which I found, but no images would load) before I searched for "calibrator.jpg" in google images. Blammo! First page.
