cuz it takes a minute! 8)
worked on my ticket. Came up with this. But the line is behind the train, not sure how to get rid of it. Suggestions?
layer mask for the line.
I would work on the text, its hard to read. It is a little monotone. I mean especially with your sig below it! ;D
alpha to selection on the train
make the selection white on the new layer, play with the select>shrink if its to big...
that would change WHAT?!
that would give the train a white BG...
she never asked for a white bg!
she doesnt want the line to show up on the train though! that would cover it up, because parts of the train is transparent.
as for text, i dont think its so much monotone as it is dull and not standing out. so i would suggest using a brighter colour and mess with the size and placement of each word, maybe add some kind of effects behind/around it. drop-shadow is an idea for that....
the steam coming from the train - it gets cut off.... gotta fill it so it doesnt look like a cut and paste. the tracks also end suddenly. and btw, i didnt know train tracks run across grass!
i would use more vibrant colours, but youre prolly using a gradient, right? im not sure if this would work, but you can try using brightness/contrast or select by colour and use colour balance. or, look around for some stock and brushes
a great start and a big improvement from the previous wips. i like what you did with the sparks brush, are you using the path tool or drawing it by hand? (i suggest checking the emulate brush dynamics when stroking the path )
I did use a gradient in the background and dulled it down. Otherwise to bright.
I'll check out the other fonts, I'm not solid on that one. But I just can't seem to find the right one. I'm just to picky right now.
I'll adjust the train and make the changes.
The sparkles are a brush I downloaded from some where.
Thanks everyone for your help and suggestions, I appreciate it.
here is my revised version.
VirtualTune - The trees are cute. Nice touch. Can i steal the idea? LOL
any time, girl! ;D
vt, you flirting with both of us? lol tsktsk
i am flirting with any girl! 8)
we can tell
haha desperate! no just havin fun when my girl is not around!
you amuse (?) him, and when your girls aint around, he amuses (?) him self
Back on topic Maffe! :!:
Ok, so I found a FONT, I like. Captain Kidd
So i added that, added VirtualTunes Trees, removed the line through the train. Popped out the color a little more, added the wording to the invitation, emailed it off for verification that it's okay and then I'm good.
Thanks for all your help!! ;D
