absolutely sick...I love the light source in the ball...I'm such a sucker for geometric stuff. The Sauron dye shows some incredible technique. Please keep it up and continue posting your work.

Just finished another disc for ...tim?. I told him he has to stop bitching about not having any dyed discs in his bag :lol: . This one (actually all of my discs lately, for quite some time now) I designed myself. I learned all sorts of cool things about circular design lately by trial and error, and this is the best I have drawn yet. This should look pretty cool when spinning through the air. I should have made the outer thorns longer, so both circles of thorns would create dark circles on the spinning disc. Next time.

I really like how the center of this one turned out.

I like it. I tend to lean towards dying images that spiral well on discs myself. Vehicle rims can give you some interesting ideas...

Ooh, that is a damn good idea. Jeronimo, your signature is a lie.

That and the more obvious Crop Circles.

I've come to appreciate my sig... some of Franks homo erotic statements almost replaced it, but I held fast. And resisted.

I love this. The design is great but I especially love the "fire and ice" coloring. They offset each other very well. One of my favorite dyes that I have seen.

ChUcK love your striker dyes and would love to have the artwork files so i can try and copy your masterpieces.

I also thought maybe you could do a USA soccer one too...since the forwards are called strikers...maybe just take the USA flag patch from the uniforms and do a black outline around striker again...anyhow that was my idea just a huge fan of the striker and of your dyes...

I have a clear striker opto, if you need canvas...it has been thrown but still 9/10 cuz opto is bullet proof...

I would like to do a phallic "the dude" one on a tan disc and try to get the tan to look like hardwood...any ideas...want a disc to try it out??? cough cough.....:D

also the blue gold line I have one of those that i would love to try adn do what you did with yours....

basically i'm a noobie and need to figure out how to do this stuff before i design my own stuff!

thanks.

hmm, let me know which ones you want and I'll try to get them to you. Lots of my stuff is put together on paper, but if there is an image file you want that I actually have, no sweat. Let me know specifically which ones.

Aw man, you should have told me last week when I was doing the Iron Dye-a-thon. Hit me up in four years and we'll get R done.

I recommend reading all the tutorials again, on as many different sites as you can find, and then PM me with specific questions and we'll get you set up in no time and with very little cash. As it turns out, dyeing discs doesn't require very much fancy stuff- the only gear that I would consider absolutely essential to this hobby can be assembled on the cheap.

Here's another lame attempt to harness cold fusion. I still can't get the effect quite right to make it look like the light source is inside the ball. I'll keep trying though, so prepare to be bored with basically the same dye a few more times. :?

Perhaps try to show that the light is emulating out from within the ball- so have light bursts coming out between the blue parts of the ball.

If that makes sense.

Envision if you put your hand over a light bulb, how the light escapes around your fingers and sort of makes the edges of your fingers glow/have a soft boundary and you sort of see a "sun burst" coming out from around your fingers.

[edit]: much easier said than done, of course :? It's a good attempt thus far, though!
