    I was working in RGB because I was an idiot and when I printed it out the colours looked different (even better actually) also they massive space in the center will be occupied by a wrist band once I know what those look like. Also, can anyone tell me where I could fit some logos in (i'm remaking the logos so that they fit the colour scheme)

    dont like rising suns (hypocritical considering my very old work), plain solid colours work so much better

    the angled writing both being on different angles clashes with eachother
    the bottom line is too close to the bottom

    I had a bunch of propaganda posters up while I was working and rising suns looked nice on them and thanks, i'll move the bottom line up a bit. About the angles though, do you suggest the same angle or no angles for one/ both of them?

    if you're gonna do angles keep them both on the same angle. you could try it without too, see which works better

    would the grunge that you put on the edges of your posters work? or will that be overkill?

    hey guys its D3, I made an alt (don't ban me just yet) just to get some opinions on something I'm doing right now. Didn't post on the shirts thread because nobody usually goes there...

    Anyway here it is



    The turtle is a raw scan.
    I have to fill the spikes, but until now, what do you think?

    Yeah, getting banned from here was pretty good, I guess my productivity level suddenly raised, so I don't want to stay here for much time..

    try having the turtle very detailed and keep the spikes clean and flashy it would probably look crazy good





    but you probably already have an idea so ignore me

    this is how it looks right now. The paper texture is paper lol it's a scan

    and I thought about making the spikes like crystal, but I don't know how that'd work because I never got to draw a crystal spike. And if I actually did, I'd rather do it on paper since I feel more comfortable. If the crystal thing doesn't work, I'll probably fill it with the same effect I used in the other 2 designs, the stars thing

    Edited:


    comparison

    ok the stars are attracting too much attention, i'll have to find a way to have a lighter version

    suggestions?

    ok g'morning
    I arranjed the floating pyramids late last night, since they were too many and that would just cause distraction.
    I also tried coloring the rest of the pyramids with tones of gray, as you can see, but I don't know if it's ok or not. I'd still like to have a crystal effect, but I don't know how...

    Right now all I can think of is that your crystals are too uniformly colored. All of the sides look like solid shapes, when they need to let through the lighting and shades of other crystals.
    Try to think of them as translucent glass. You can see through but it distorts what you see as well.

    i also don't see why they have to be so noisy, like your skull image

    crystals are clear and clean, not gritty

    are you referring to the black ones? I don't know, I always liked that effect haha

    and the translucent effect is my problem.. I'll draw it once in paper to see if I get it, then I'll try it vectorial. Problem is that none of the images has a white background, or it wouldn't offer much contrast

    edit: and these stupid crystals don't look like anything in illustrator hnnnng

    i don't get why the random cut rectangles of colour are there, it just doesn't seem to have any bearing on the rest of the design

    i like the other idea though, except for the pink one where the sigma is the wrong way around so it looks like it says

    SIGEA and Wnterprises

    Yeah, so do you think I should go with that one?

    The little rectangles are there to balance out the two sides of the M because otherwise it would look unblanaced if you get what I mean?

    Top left is the best, I don't like the orange tho.
    Can you do something about the square on the left? Like make it as big as a letter or something like that?

    Thanks for the feedback, do you mean I should make the little coloured rectangle a bit wider?

    I personally like the green one as I feel it's the most readable. Perhaps, since your font is a bit rounded on the edges, you could round the edges of the color blocks as well? Just slightly, though, as you'd lose a lot of that professional look if it was too heavy.

    Yes either that or use the top right design and loose the squares and instead make the whole thing look like a sigma.

    Besides the square only adds to the design on the top left. I don't think the other three would look unbalanced without it.

    I think you should have either multi coloured squiggles or no squiggles but it still looks awesome

    Orange one looks nice. But I think the M/E should look more like an E. It's readable, sure, but it doesn't give the feeling of being an E, it's rather "I know this is supposed to be an E so I will read this as an E" rather than "Heh, that M looks like an E as well".

    Oh, that kind of sigma. Well, it still annoys me that I have to force myself to think of it as an E rather than just seeing it as an E because it looks like one.

    well here's the thing. That .ai file is so big that Illustrator cant open it again, so everything I do now has to be on photoshop

    But i thought the squiggle connected the piece, though its not something that bothers me. I'm going to submit this in a while, unless theres something else you'd like to point out

    I just don't understand why it needs a squiggly line in the first place.
