I’ve been through all kinds of threads here and I know I’m probably missing some but I still haven’t figured a few things out. Most reading I’ve done here on site seems to indicate that only 6 colors may be used in the derby and designs that look like they have more are using halftones. Yet I see designs in the derby that use what look like blatant solid gradients or blended strokes that look like digital paintings? I’m not sure how that is. Are some designs digitally printed based on design? Or are the halftone dot patterns applied later once the winner is decided? Can we use straight gradients in our artwork? Or can our designs be digitally painted (blending strokes without using half tones)? And if not, what am I not understanding when I see artwork in battle using these kinds of effects?
I’m sorry, I know you’ve all probably heard this a million times before but I’ve been crawling through these threads for two days and still am not sure D:
