EDIT: My entry btw

Not my best, I’m just not so great at figuring out the tools yet, and Fractals I have issues with, I wanted to add some but am not great at it at all, I also wanted to add a red mask but wasn’t successful at that either, anyways, I tried

You might wanna make the squigly line less squigly, and make the background look like a piece of parchment on fire! >:D

 
Flag Post

Good idea, but like I said, still not too familiar, I wouldn’t know how to do that…

Damn it yuyuter i was going to do the Mario mushroom. And hokage, If you want to do vertical can you make the restrictions 300Wx500H?

 
Flag Post

Damn it Kool_A1d I was going to do a tank one.
I still did but only cuz I couldn’t think of anything else to do.

they are both a completely different style though

@Kool_A1D: The text doesn’t fit. I believe you’re trying to do a similar style to 80s newspapers so get some serifs (slab for the title and normal for the body).

Arial/Helvetica isn’t that widely used even in newspapers today because serif texts are easier to read and looks professional.

I agree. The newspaper is a good idea but it wasn’t done partially well. Work on the fonts you use and the layout. The title could look better too.

i know, that background was killing me, I spent hours on it but eventually gave up and you right I was trying to do 80’s style but still I fail, I will work on it later.

Also, if you’re going to include text in art, make sure it’s proof-read. There should be no apostrophe in “death’s.”

I also don’t see the rhyme or reason for the odd formatting of the text? Why the bizarre line indentations?

 
Flag Post

As this is discussion as well, which is best???

 
Flag Post

i would have ot say the first one.. The second ones background doesnt seem to go with the tank.

 
Flag Post

I was going for an older style of newspaper that fit my pic a little better, well i’m home now so i’m goin to start on it
