Title: Another wallpaper
Post by: Attil@ on April 30, 2006, 12:22:51 am
I've done it now. Tried to keep it as simple as possible. (sorry for the font I've used, I don't have the real font). Do you like it?

you are askin an opinion, and i personally don't. sorry. it cuts off a bit too much of the logo and the scratchy erasing of the font looks a bit too obvious that it's a templated eraser.

The font is quite cool. Where'd you get it?

Not bad, maybe a bit too bright in the middle, try making it brushed metal like the text then post again... that is of course if you read this as constructive criticism.

IMHO it doesn't look better, but here it goes

Any chance of you posting alink to the font so we can all grab a copy?

Of course!

The Good: It would work well for a three shades of grey wallpaper on my 386...
The Bad: Not brushed metal, that is key.
The Ugly: I'd not call it ugly.

Thanks for the opinions... should I make more MaSu wallpapers?
...and has somebody got the original Machinae Supremacy logo font?

The third one is much closer to the mark.

Make more wallpapers! you'll get better at it over time.

I couldn't sleep at night, so I made an other wallpaper... hope you like it. It's based on the previous one, sorry for my empty ideas.

You should have made the brushstrokes go in a non-horizontal direction on the brushed steel-version. It looks a bit strange the way it is now.
