here are two tshirts i made this afternoon, using the "dark fabric" iron on stuff and some pbns i made.  i messed up the gray one because i didn't read the directions first--d'oh!--but i kind of like the crinkly edges...as long as they don't peel up.
cheers--

Are these just using the iron stuff you put in bubblejet printers?  Does it last through the wash? Can anybody recommend any specific papers/kits I can buy to give this a go?

i took the shirts to my local tonight and left the gray one with my bartender friend, patrick.  he didn't mind the crinkly edges and modeled it, on the spot!

the iron on stuff is just standard office depot brand dark fabrinc iron-on transfer stuff, but the porn-by-number process is my own little secret.

Oh, annette, those are cool!  I know your secret, but I won't tell.  I've used it before for some other projects, but never for porn.  Very nifty.

lothruin, maybe your secret is better than mine!  we should share.  
i keep thinking there is probably an easier way to do it, but it's sort of fun, in a pain-staking photoshop way, so i keep on churning them out.  the "done" paint-by-numbers are the easy part, though.  it's the "blank" ones that take forever...and i haven't been able to figure out how to make solid transfers from them.  they look GREAT on notecards and stuff, but the lines aren't heavy enough to make a good iron on.  i'm going to work on that today, since i'm on holiday.  i think i'm going to have to have different "blanks" for paper and for tshirts because the heavy lines are SO aesthetically unpleasing on paper, but seem necessary for fabric...

Hmm, the way I was thinking isn't really painstaking at all, but is, in fact, a simple filter available in Adobe Photoshop.  It doesn't create any "blank" paint-by-number type design, although now that you say that, I'm pretty sure I know what filter you're using, and have to say it does sound painstaking.  However, this way would be less versatile, I think.  It takes a bit of tweaking to make it look right.  Here's my daughter a la this filter.  As you can see, the fewer colors in the original pic, the better.  I imagine with clothesless women, there would be sufficiently fewer colors.  Also, you might try messing with several filters to get it to look better.

yeah, i haven't actually been satisfied with any of the filter results.  i've been magic wanding and color filling.  then outlining by hand to make the blanks.  i like to do things the hard way, i guess.
