Just Testing the water

Postby Cheesegeezer » Wed Jan 08, 2014 1:35 am

Ok so I thought i'd submit a collection I made for the missus (thought I better get that in).

I'm no whizz with photoshop by any means but here my "The Before Collection" efforts. Anyways here they are. I tried to keep it as authentic as possible.

Hey Cheesegeezer,
The logo is great. You just need a couple of tweaks and it'll be approved. First thing, it's a bit too big. Follow this tutorial to properly size it: viewtopic.php?f=18&t=42
Secondly, we need to add a shadow to it so it's visible on a white background. After playing around with it, the best looking result IMO is this:
- Add a shadow of 2px for Distance and 2px for Size. Duplicate your layer and on the top layer, modify the shadow to Distance 0 and Size 2. Finally change the opacity of the shadow to 50% on the top layer.

For the banner, I would try to work a bit on the left side. IMO it shouldn't be black but maybe brownish so it would blend better with the right side of it and doesn't look like 2 parts pasted side by side.

For the poster, I know this is an "older" movie so the sources are not great for it. However I think this one looks better. It's not pixelized, it's grainy which is fine. The lighting is much better too. https://image.tmdb.org/t/p/original/mXM ... 718yKp.jpg

Always try to find the best source you can.

Of course this is just my opinion :)

Just like ArieS says the logo needs a shadow, the poster is too blurry and the banner as well. And even though there's no rule againt it the banner could really use some more creativity.

Also, if you tighten up the tracking for the Classic Script font, the characters will connect. You can find the tracking setting in the Character window.

Ok I wish to submit this set of Fanart for the TV show Arrow ID Number 257655

Firstly sorry for being quiet over the past few weeks, i've been so snowed under with work. Can someone explain/or point me to where a how do i submit? but more importantly can a moderator check this and see if it is upto Fanarts high standards (Thanks in Advance ;) )

BTW your forum is clipping the banners, (you'll have to copy image Url and paste in a new tab in a browser to see full size. :D

Cheers

To submit search for Arrow from the home page. The rest is pretty obvious.

Season banner 1: Nothing wrong with it, but it would probably look better if you showed more of his face.
Season banner 2: You need to adjust the color or find another soure.

Season thumb 1: Again, nothing wrong, butI would turn the shadow so it's the same way as in the banner.
Season thumb 2: There's a grey line the right-center that needs to go

Hey Tobby, thanks for your comments.

You have such a good eye for detail ;) i didnt even notice the shadow lol.

I kinda like the banner 1 as he is an elusive character in the show, but if you want more face, then i can do this.

I'll adjust the suggestions and repost/update.

Thanks for your time

Cheese :D

Cheezegeezer: I can't really comment from a moderation angle, but from an artistic viewpoint it's all subjective, I also like the first one, if there are no issues from a moderation point of view, upload whichever one you prefer.
