Jokerman only loses out to Papyrus and Comic Sans as my most hated fonts. EDIT: Oh, and Curlz MT.

Papyrus is a good font, just... severely overused by people who have no idea what it means to choose the right font for each project. Hmmm... kinda like ... Polar Inversion, maybe? ;)

thanks god I didn't use one of those fonts, although I was tempted.

my worst area is fonts and text. colors and combinations of swirls and arcs I find come easier, fonts I just don't have that artistic harmony feel with them.

:D

That's the thing, fonts don't really have an art to them. You just choose something which goes with your sig/av/piece of art.

I was planing on entering this one, but everyone hated it...

and after seeing the entries, I think that I better do a new one, I guess I know what to do now :D

How has that got polar inversion in it?

It uses a bit of every corner in this:

aheadbyusedhondanh1.jpg

It was originally a typical-looking polar inversion until I cut and pasted the corners in a new layer and flipped them all so they're all in the top-left corner, then I used layer blending to make the colorful fractal-like effect you see. Then I added the border, text, and Dark Samus to make it a little more exciting.

Maybe later I'll try to recreate it and post the polar inverted wallpaper before I flipped and cropped it.

I'm looking to enter my first SOTW since...well...longer than I care to remember. :oops: I've got something that looks cool but it doesn't have that extra special something that makes it awesome. Well...back to the drawing board. :?

Good luck!

Edit: I'll see if I can enter this one. I have nothing yet, but I'm sure I can whip something up.

It's an enticing idea for a SOTW, open to lots of interpretation!

Of course it's fun! Why else would an entire page of entries be submitted in the first 1.5 days of competition? :)

BTW, I updated the WIP [work in progress] by adding another version of the photo (the end result you see in my off-topic mini-tut) into the mix, also heavily tweaking the right side for more eyecandy. Oh, and now it's my signature.

ahhh so then I think I did pick a good clean font one that doesn't compete with the very detailed background. one that didn't distract from the polar, which was the intention of the piece. thanks Andrew I've just raised my happiness with this one to 95%

:wink:

I disagree wholeheartedly. I think that there IS an art to fonts. A huge art. I think fonts can evoke emotions, feelings, etc. I love fonts. :-)

My guess is because of the 15-day delay between the choosing of the topic and the creation of the submission thread... I was a bad boy. :(

Well, I entered. As much as it pained me to do so.

My entry is a total joke. If I win, I blame all of you. :D
