ok

not really asking for help just an opinion. wasn't sure where this belonged. does this even remotely look like a good texture for the flower?

I feel I'm getting closer to a texture i can add as final stage on plants.

one on left before texture one on right is supposed to be fuzzy velvety petals.

what do you think

I offered a suggestion for the bunny legs, but then deleted it when I noticed that you'd finalized the picture the same day. I didn't want to seem picky. :D

I like the texture on the flower! It seems more realistic, but it doesn't quite suit the green.

When computers become self-aware and take over the world, the porn bots will get much, MUCH worse.

i saw the bunny notes before you erased, but as I had moved them already in my picture I decided to leave in the revised postion. . i did take a screen shot of the page and filed it away with my other notes so next bunny I'll try something like that. Maybe by then my drawing skills will be up for those. :wink:

you commented I like the texture on the flower! It seems more realistic, but it doesn't quite suit the green

? by the green I'm going to make assumption you mean the top portion of flower and not the background. I think you are correct on that. I was just too lazy to cut that portion out on the test. In next drawing of fuschia plants (different species) that will remain shiny not velvety. its just actual outer leaves that are the furry/fuzzy velvet texture on the real plants, the the inner petals are totally smooth not fuzzy at all.

so I think I have this down now. few more tests and parameters to figure out and I'll start more ambitious flowering plant

and if I'm up to it maybe a different bird.

ciao thanks for looking .

I'm working on a signature for another site, but I'm kinda lost as to what to do next. Well, I know what I want to do next, but I guess I'm just not quite sure how to go about doing it. So I was hoping I could get some suggestions from you guy's, or possibly what I could do different.

That's the picture so far, what I'd like to do is make the, "CD" stand out more, but I'm not quite sure how to go about doing that.

I also have the CD without the effects added on, and one with out the outline either, so I can always use those, if you have an idea that needs it without the effects.

EDIT -- I am also fairly new to the program, and somewhat new to the whole, computer art/photo-editing area. So this is obviously not gonna be anything amazing.

Yes Minto it looks much much better, next time try to start your project with a large canvas size (not less that 800 pixels in the smallest dimension), and when you finish, size it down to the size you want, this method will give a very good result for sharp smooth edges like this :AntiAliasingOn: not like this :AntiAliasingOff:, you know what I am talking about , right? The borders or outlines of the CD text.

Oh, yeah I know I could still fix that if i wanted (layers 8D) but I kinda like it. I may go back and change it

aye aye everyone!

I made this poster for my band (we're From The Basement), we'll be doing the first part of Torngat [linky], along with June Tools, and so I designed this poster to advertise (it's in french, I know :roll: )

I would really need critisms, help on making it as appealing as it gets! [staying inside the rules, though]

any thoughts?

I think the underlying design of your poster is great, but there are some layout issues.

There are some basic layout rules for this type of poster.

1st, group your information (ie time/place, band name etc) These groups should be distinct and should each have a level of importance that reflects there dominance on the poster. For instance over half you page is taken up with detail that while necessary, isn't going to 'sell' your event. There is also no gap between this info and your En Spectacle splash. There is virtually no contrast, grouping or whitespace for the bottom 2/3 of the poster making it less inviting to read. Once someone has decided to go to the concert, they will take the time to read about the time and place so these can be made smaller.

You have a clear right justification for the bottom part, try extending it right to the top, making Torn Cat much larger (this will be possible if you make the detail smaller). This should add strength to your design. If it looks no good, it is easy enough to move it back.

The area I really think needs changing is the plain text, as per the ideas above.

I will try and demonstrate what I mean here, but I am not sure if this will display properly as there is no preview and very limited text and layout options.

TORN CAT

FROM THE BASEMENT

June Tools

En Specticale

Venredi le 17 June 2009

In the next few lines

Put in the place and time

I can't remember what they were

But you get the idea

This can be quite small

as anyone wanting to go will read it

I hope the above looks the way I intended, but basicaly you need to look at your lack of white space, size contrast and grouping. I think the background, fonts and logo look great.

Re-reading your info, I see that your band is 'From the Basement'

Therefore, this should have more emphasis than Torngat (sorry, I thought your band was Torn Cat, my bad). In your poster, Torngat is the strongest element. Suggest you reverse position of these and increase size of 'From the Basement', reduce size of Torngat and look to increase the contrast of your band name as it blends a bit too much with the background.

I hope these ideas help.

Po.

Looking good.

Little bit of fine tuning. Suggest you make the date Wednesday the 17 June 2009 bold (and possibly a little bit bigger), and make the rest of the where/when info even smaller, with a noticable gap between them.

(I know Torn Cat is a bit sad, but there are some wierd band names out there. Looking at the font, it still looks a bit like Torn Cat to me :wink: )

Hi pineapple

Don't be afraid of space. Space is your friend. Here is an extract from a design web page

"

Whitespace is often used to create a balanced, harmonious layout. One that just “feels” right. It can also take the reader on a journey through the design in the same way a photographer leaves “looking room” in a portrait shot by positioning the subject off the center of the frame and having them looking into the remaining space"

Don't be in a hurry to fill it, it gives emphasis to the band info at the top.

Your going to hate me for saying this, but I think you should lose the double spacing for the detail stuff. The gap I was talking about was between the date and the details, not between the individual elements of the detail.

Overall I think your poster looks very professional.

Hope the gig is a success.

Po

Can any1 help me out. I attempted an eye but pretty much failed. I dont know what else to do and its already pretty bad. Should I just start over?

I threw the lashes on last 2nd so those are easy to fix.

But the rest is lacking....

Hmm....I draw the outline shape of the eyes, where the eye balls should be it's hollow/transparent.

A layer below I just use my Eye tut...This will give you more define lines and a more 3d look. IMO.

This can be the result if you haven't seen it already.

Good luck.

Edit: Or you can try smudge(didn't have this plugin when I made that piece), that might save your work.

I believe it's possible.
