First time posting here. Lovely to meet you all!
I'm wanting to learn how to take a graphic I find online, say of a comic character, and do whatever I need to do to it to end up with a single colour silk screen mesh. The mesh will later be used with a kind of clay paint (underglaze) on rice paper to make transfers, so I assume it will be a large-hole mesh that I need to use.
Can people please point me to tutorials etc that I can learn from? and perhaps also suggest PC programs I can use aside from Illustrator? I've used photoshop to some small extent in the past, so looking to learn the jargon ect.
Essentially I need to prepare the art work to make the screen (I'm having someone else make the screen for me, but not do any printing). I'm hoping to have a number (10-20) small images done on the screen, kinda like a stencile set.
I'm just needing to know where to start. Thank you all so much!! As an example, how do I get something like the first image into something like the last image? Is there even a name for such a process?
