ihearthurrt halftone by truemarmalade ihearthurrt halftone by truemarmalade
Um, yeah. This has been done for a month or so and I finally got around to photoing and posting it.

This is a halftone stencil made up of 12 parts, each part A2 size, total is about 6x7 feet. About 11,000 squares in it.

The original photo is of *ihearthurrt and can be found here [link] .

It's hanging on my ceiling, that's why my lamp is on the left side.

It took me two months to cut it out and I'm kinda feeling like it was a bit of a waste. But hey, at least I got making my biggest-stencil-ever out of the way.

Lots of :heart: to *ihearthurrt for letting me use her photo.


EDIT: Ok who requested this as a print?

Well, the graffiti scene, outside of tagging with shitty text stuff, isn't very advanced where i live. :B

hmmm, i'm undecided as to whether this is amazing devotion, or just plain insanity! when i start a stencil, i got so excited to spray it i don't think i would have the patience to wait 2 months... awesome none the less :)

Why did her shoulder end up so bad?

When I was cutting that bit I forgot that I wasn't doing no solid black parts so I ended up cutting all that out since it was so dark. :\ Then when it matched up with the piece next to it it ended up being a lot more obvious than I thought.

Damn dead...
I juste don't find one thing, to have clean line in black parts because no solid black is allowed in this kind of project.

I'm still wondering your technique on how to get the image in the halftone. I've tried in PS but it doesnt' seem right to me. Again, sick ass work.

It's impressive in its size, and detail, but I also feel like something is missing.

Maybe if it was more of a finished piece... As it stands now, it's just a photo reproduction that took you 2 months.

Yeah, which was the goal I suppose. Too much effort for something that is only impressive to others.
