For the weekly challenge, C+C most welcome.
edit: Changed one colour. Old version for comparison: http://img84.imageshack.us/img84/8563/inphy.gif
You get 1st place for the preview image
Thanks, for now I'll restore the old version (+ the changed colour) and take a break, I think I'm getting blind to my own faults and just jumping all around the place.
I'm a bit puzzled about 'arbitrary positions', I tried to get them all to a single vanishing point (img137.imageshack.us/img137/3162/inphyvp.gif). Poor choice of vanishing point or just poor execution?
:c I liked the old one better. The depth doesn't really do much, if anything it seems to make things blurrier. Also, the 'depth' you added seems to be at arbitrary positions in the text. The top of the Y looks jaggier in the new version too =\
Skeddles: Good catch, the bottom was slightly brighter and more red, it got lost when I redid the palette from scratch. It has been restored.
Onek: Thanks, I added some depth to the frame, I think it looks slightly better now. Does it?
needs a lens flare.
a little too simple imo , maybe you could add some "special" effex like shadow, reflection, perspective
Hope you do well in the comp, good AA, dithering, font and colours!
Nice job, I saw this on the forum and liked it.
Did the bottom used to be brighter? If it did it looked better.
I kinda liked it before the AA, had a neat oldschool feel, but this is good also.
Love the preview image :)
This is actually quite amazing, the dithering works well with your color choice, it's smooth, but has a great pixel art feeling to it and it contrasts well with the black background.
