Start Menu Picture
« on: 2010-06-29 12:03:48 »
So, after having a little trouble trying to find out why the sword pic wasn't appear on the Start Screen, (it disappeared!) I decided to try and make my own using Photoshop.



It's my first time using Photoshop, so let me know how I did.

Edit: If I put this in the wrong thread, please move it for me. Thankyee.

I think you posted in the wrong thread dude. Game Tweaking is for release and WIP only. I think stuff like this goes to General?

Post in Game Tweaking if it's about something you intend to release/are releasing.  Otherwise, General.

First time using Photoshop?  Not bad, although it looks like you just stuck four different images together.  Photoshop has over nine thousand image editing features, so don't neglect to explore them.  Of course, you get better with the program as you become more familiar with it.  I find it's fun to play around with when I have a little extra time.

You can do some pretty wicked things with Photoshop if you've got the skill and know-how (I'm not claiming to be an expert myself).

not too shabby for a first try. A few critiques, it would look better if you had faded cloud and seph into the background by adjusting their opacity, and maybe placed the FF7 logo at the top.

Overall its a great start, keep messing with PS and there's no telling what you can do.

Alright, Here it is again, but with some modifications.



The reason for the thick border around the logo is because it doesn't look all that great without it.

I should know that you used magic eraser to erase the white parts of the meteor logo? Although it already looks fine to me and you're correct with the thick border since I'd imagine without it the black text would go with the black background and can't be seen properly. Nice work man. :)

I think if you remove the buster sword from that pic he would look kind of feminine. Is that really how Cloud holds his sword?? *offtopic*

To tell the truth, that logo was a .png image I had buried in my Picture folder. It was like that already. :D

You know how some girls tend to do their arms like that where their hands looks like it has no bones and is very flexible?? Its just like Cloud's right hand in that picture. Not too feminine only the hands.

Is it alright for me to post too?? This pictures pretty old and I've edited it a long time ago but I have something somehow similar to yours.

Does anyone know if I can edit the exe to change the placement of the new game and continue??
