Symbiot
« on: October 20, 2006, 09:31:45 am »
Hey guys, my friend and I decided to make some Symbiot remakes because that picture is just so damn cool. :) Hopefully I am posting this in the right place. Well please tell me what you think! Here are a few samples. We both decided that the first one was the best. It's a goldish color sort of to symbolize rust and fading away, and the blue light is like a ray of hope(Let's just say it was influenced by Reanimator a little). I thought we did a good job so any suggestions to help make it better would be much appreciated. ;)

P.S. Feel free to use them for whatever you want to, if you think they're good enough anyway. :P

EDIT: okay I changed the second one.

For one, the text is horrendous.

I didnt say the font was bad, I said the text is. The effects you put on the first one make it ugly. The lack of effects on the 2nd one make it look very low quality. Also, it's not AA'ed, so there are lots of jagged edges visible, which are exhaggerated by the curvy font.

My other criticism is those spikey things. They're copy-pasted over the picture with Overlay or something, and different sizes of the same picture. They also go outside the white border of the original picture, and make it look cluttered.

Also: huge lens flares look extremely unproffesional.

The bottom two links are identical?
(i) There will come a day when nothing you did matters. But it is not today. Here and now, you are alive.
(ii) Live well under your own authority.
(iii) Abolishing suffering is impossible. Lessening suffering is mandatory.

* Mecha y Möcha uses photoshop geek days to try and remember name of font...

alex... alexxxx



ALEXIS!? no im wrong aren't i. it looks nice man, but you need to bring the text in softer, more approachable to the picture, they should blend but not to the point of not being able to tell the two apart. text that isnt intimidating to a background is good. Work on that.

You are right my good sir it's Alexis. I e-mailed Robert and he gave me the 411 on it. :) Anyway thank you for the constructive criticism and I will try and work on that in the future. +1 for helping and not being a total jackass ;)

I wasnt being a jackass, if you meant me. I was giving you criticism. Try not to take it so personally.

If someone tells you off for doing something wrong, you dont cry and tell them they're jackasses for being mean to you, you take their advice and improve upon what you did wrong.
