View Full Version : Beta Wall (again!)

01-02-2004, 04:14 PM
Wasn't sure where to go with this...I finished the wall (without the border and the text) and it hit me, it looked like a vacation photo. So I added the border and text, but I don't know if it really fits or works.

Comments, criticism and any help would be welcomed!

Interesting....This reminds of a postcard ^__^' I liked what you did with the bg. It looks distinct and yet the guy doesn't just blend into it. Good job!

This is cool. Post card style. I like it. :)

I really like it. The only thing I would suggest is maybe adding some of the markings that the post office sometimes puts on top but It would be just fine without.

I had one postcard sent to me from Japan, unfortunately I don't have it with me. Maybe you could fake it and make it seem as if the card was from like Alba city on Mars or something like that.

I agree with RequiMem that adding some text to make it look like it's from somewhere would help add to the postcard feel. I wonder if some shine (arent most postcards shiney?) would help or if it would just look tacky... might be something to try.

good job so far! Just needs the final touches.

A little bit of scratch and dust maybe, might look cool.

I think it'd work more as a poster than a wallpaper. It's just not sutable for icons.

Nice concept! I like it. Try to make it a bit shiny.

btw. isn't the stamp (and the other stuf that the post office puts on) on the other side of the post card?

Actually yeah, I guess most of it is on the back. Oh welll, scrap that idea. :P

I just remembered, the one I got from Japan had a post-it-note-like sticker with a barcode on it on the front, but I doubt you would want to put that on the image.

I like it a lot~ But the text seems to be pretty small... I dunno, I'm trying to look at it from far just so that I get that "postcard" size feel. The text seems to small and I wonder where Spike got that cool white colour ink pen hehe :D
The only thing I think needs working is the text. Background, border, extraction, all looks alright to me :D Nice work!
