I'm shipping up to Boston

Postby The_Show » Sat Oct 04, 2008 10:02 pm

Well as part of my weekly procrastination, I decided to make a Papelbon sig. It's really different from what I'm usually doing, but I definitely had fun making it.

The left side is somewhat empty as compared to the right (the "58" was an attempt to take up some space), but when I did try to implement something, it didn't look quite right.

i really like this one, but here are my few suggestions...

1. i would have made papelbon just a tad bigger.
2. the white flames/streams behind him could be tweaked just a bit to look a little better.
3. i like the 58 behind the text, but i would have faded it in a little more.
4. i really like the text. simple but it stands out and looks very good. i dont mind the darkness of the left side of the sig at all and everyone the whole color scheme really looks sharp.

nice job ;-D

I don't think it's that the left side is empty, maybe it's just a little unbalanced looking because it's darker than the right. Maybe a black to transparent gradient on the right side set to overlay, soft light or whatever you like. The text is fine but I think it might look better if it were lower, could be just a preference of mine though. I really like the player effect and the background. Sig well done. ;-D
