Here’s a video of how to ink for a laser-cut skateboard.
I was recently hired to conceptualize and illustrate a team of Superhero zombies to be laser-engraved into skateboards by Revenga (www.revengaskateboards.com).
While designing, I also had to structure the design so the layout could be changed to fit a T-Shirt as well. I made sure to keep the characters masked on separate layers, that way moving them around at the end was relatively easy.
We also created a silk-screen color version for boards and shirts, using around 6 colors.
Thanks for watching, please post any questions in the comments.
