    Yes the two words did turn out nice, aside from the l and s not touching and the F not being entirely readable at first glance. The rest of it has a lot of concerns....

    Neat stuff, but not graphic design per se, more digital art which is more subjective and thus hard to critique. I like your line work pieces much more than the vector polygon one - the Japanese-esque...

    There is a quick way to roughly reproduce the artwork in Illustrator, but there will still be lots of clean-up and reassigning the colors to be three separate spot colors.

    I'm using Illustrator...

  • Creating laser effects

    Hello again people!!

    I am producing all the artwork for a new night at a big local nightclub and need to somehow replicate laser effects found in the massive clubs such as BCM (http://www.bcm-planetdance.com/bcm.swf << go to the crew section and look at laser show) i plan to incorporate these scenes on the flyer backgrounds, and into the actual logo but am a buit stuck as to how to go about it. The closest i have been is using Illy's flare tool but even that i can't work out how to alter colours etc ( spot the self taugh) ANY help would be appreciated cheers!

    Bleh. It's been done to DEATH (rays). Need to think differently to get attention.

    Design your flyer with say, an inch of white outside a very generous bottom bleed-- cut on an angle if possible. Take the printed flyers to a place where they do laser welding. Ask them to clamp the pile and cut off the bottom with their units. Or, probably just as good, and cheaper-- just take the stack to a woodshop and bandsaw cut the clamped stack along the trim line and finish with a few seconds of torching to the clamp pile. The burned edge will get their attention.

    See? Get literal, get hot. Get creative with the form. And play up the play.

        I would expiriment with an really soft airbrush set to a low opacity in photoshop. Pick a color and build on it, changing the color closer to white as you go. The picture on the right has a motion blur applied to it too.

            I'd also look into using the pen tool to do make shape layers. From there you can add stroke, glows and other effects and easily re-edit their positions.
