    Props on the Micromaster theme. It looks fantastic as usual. I was actually showing last years calendar to a mate last week.

    One you say, Kit? Sounds very straight forward....

    I thought you meant one post, and just keep adding pics to it.

    I don't think Guzzle's revenge counts due to being portrait instead of landscape, but here it is anyway :p  IMG_20170721_233211.jpg

    @tikgnat had already mentioned to me about using my Target: 2006 pic, perhaps as some sort of lenticular image. Like I said in the UK thread I think that might be too much expense for not much return (since very little happens in that particular shot). Also, mention of landscape format made me go back to my toon version file and whip this up. It's a compilation of all the separate elements (cars etc) which I'd previously spread out across the gif, this time they're all in one (more like Geoff Senior's original splash page). So yeah, that's my input!

    Target2006Comp.jpg

    So many awesome pics already in this thread, but these are some absolute standouts for me:

    All fab, but I agree with Underlord - the colours here work best.
    Especially loving the bots at the bar! :thumb  Seriously, all of these are great... You should have your own spin-off calendar!

    Is it too late to add birthdays?

    Just in case there's still time, mine is 14 January

    Also can I buy a calendar too?

    CALENDAR UPDATE!

    January is done... I think. Just gotta crack on!

    [​IMG]

    Once I get the 12 months done I'll be taking preorders! Cost will more than likely be similar to last year, around £15 or so.

    Edit
    Maybe I shouldn't say that, price will depend on how many preorders I get (and thus what size print run I do) but I aim to have it similar to last year.

    Righty, that's the next three months done.

    Cracking on!

    I'm gonna say Pre-orders are open now actually, if you want a calendar PM me and I'll put you on a list. That way I can get an idea how many will be needed so I can work out the cost. Provisionally I'll say they'll cost around £15 each, posted. But obviously if I don't get the order numbers I'll have to do a smaller run and so it'll cost more... If you get me. Also, if you do want one, best pre-order. Last year I did a fixed print run of 60 and once they were gone, they were gone. No second chances!

    So yeah, if you want one PM me!

    Edit
    Oh I have no idea why they are so saturated here BTW, they look nothing like that in my working pics, or even the preview JPGs I'm doing. Hrm. I assume it's a flickr thing?

    Ahhhh. It's some kinda crazy colour setting thing that's making it look super saturated. On the advice of the printers I'm working with CMYK not RGB. Working on the files on my screen they look great, but when I turn them into jpgs and upload them the colours go crazy.

    Like this.

    [​IMG]

    But if I change the colour system before converting to jpg it looks like this...

    [​IMG]

    Which is pretty close to the CMYK work file but honestly, not as nice.

    Anyway the printers will get the proper CMYK work files so it'll look more like the second pic rather than the first.

    Mystery solved!
