Yeah, when I set this as the theme I was thinking….

“Well- I guess it doesn’t hurt if Raw wins TWO in a row.”

xD

I wouldn’t be so sure. I have a sneaking feeling that Lax will probably at least want to enter this one.

I’m still confused with vectors. Does this mean we have to use the path tool? I suck at that.

So, vectors are like ribbons? Can we use vector brushes instead?

As long as the art style is vector.

I mean, I have some vector brushes also that I’ll be using. ;)

OK, does anyone have a link to some vector pics? I still don’t know what it really is. Google doesn’t help much.

I hope you get the art style a bit more now.

Thanks, I think I understand now. One more question. Does it have to be only vector, or can it contain other images as well?

 
Flag Post

Nope- all vector.

Alright. Sorry, one more ?. Would this or this be considered legit? I ask because I don’t think the buildings/islands are vector.

They’re vector. They’re not real photos, they’re…like an outline of the real thing. Yeah?

Thanks. I thought it would take people a while to recognize it. It’s pretty subtle.

Here’s what I have so far.

Any CC?

lol, maybe it has something to do with your eyesight.

Actually, my left eye has a split retina after my friend ditched a small rubber ball at me really hard and got me in the eye :P
And yes, we’re stilll friends.
And it’s lookin good so far cuff.

After almost two hours of worming on my entry, I think it looks cool :P I’d like to get some feedback from you, guys!

What do you think? Suggestions, tutorials, tips, etc are as always more than welcome ^^ Thank you in advance.

Also, nice theme- hard to understand and it’s even more difficult to make a tag with that style, but the outcomes are always nice. I suggest all of you to try GIMPtalk to get some tutorials, I have seen two (by Curly Hairded Boy, I think) that are pretty awesome. I’ll edit this post tomorrow with the links.

cuffofizz:

I don’t like the size of your signature or the green part of it, I think you have a pretty good concept but the colour scheme and focal point need some work :P Also, those black borders kill the whole composition, in my opinion. Keep it up ;)

 
Flag Post

Lighty, I really don’t think that your sig is vector…Try swapping the render or silhouetting it. A lot of vector sigs don’t even use renders.

A work in progress, any CC or comments?
