do your thing...
Off the bat... as i've said throughout here... if you can't read it, scrap it. White on white isn't exactly legible, plus the positioning of the main object would make for a nice flow if the type was in the bottom right.
The pseudo-HDR filter here really destroyed the image. It does ad a lot of contrast, but a little too much. By subtle with filters.
Color looks good. A little washed out for my taste, but if that's the concept, you hit it pretty good.
As for the red sketches on the wall... i'm not sure I get why it's there. Looks like a mistake.
Looks like the PNG was saved correctly, not a lot of loss.
I'm having mixed feelings about the mirror deal here... I see there you were going with it, but they concept would be a little more well defined with some contrast to one side. Maybe a different color overlay?
BG looks neat.
Type treatment is good...not sure about the glow behind it, but it's not too distracting.
The fleur de li is a little distracting... maybe unneeded. I'll leave that to you.
Color scheme is spectacular. I like it a lot. Good use of highlight as well.
Methinks your contrast is off. The text is perfectly legible on my screen. Also the graffiti on the wall was part of the original stock.
Clone stamp dude.
What's the point? It's part of the stock. That's a lot of effort, and you're the first person to actually think it wasn't.
please inverse dont start a war about this little comment to
It's ok, he can speak his mind as long as it's constructive. This is my thread.
Anywho... Removing the graffiti was one click away, but I had a neat idea. Why not replace it? Also, see what I mean about the text?
In all humility, I liked it better before. Impact is a disgusting font and should immediately be erased from any computer you access, and that placement screws up the composition (rule of thirds, buddy). Also background tie-ins to your name or websites is just tacky. Also increasing the contrast ruins the colouring and effects I used.
Can you outline the thirds in the original version... maybe i'm just blind, but I'm not seeing the layout. I used the horizontal thirds already in he photograph. Also, the red in the graffiti was sampled from the image. No new colors....that's what bugged me about the original graffiti, it contrasted too much and drew too much attention.
Take your best swing.
This is also one of the best in the thread so far. Great work here.
Coloring is GREAT, layout is very impressive, and the type works well.
Only one thing with the type (being picky) the micro text under the headline in my opinion needs to be legible or doesn't need to be text.
Background works great, and I like the image treatment a lot. Very well shot photo, GREAT image selection.
That's a hard 10/10
Hey Neuron I remember this sig from a while and i've been meaning to ask you do you play heroes of newerth? because iv'e seen it on their forums before and wanted to make sure it was you
I agree with inverse about the text placement (and the font), but I do think the graffiti color was too noticeable. Though just changing that would've been better than writing gamerenders. It was a neat idea, but meh
