    I'm working on what will hopefully turn out to be a versatile and useful pack of posters for use on custom maps. So far, I have nearly finished one poster as a test, and would like some community help on ideas.

    The aim is that they should be ideally suitable for most situations, ie. not specific company logos, etc.

    My first one I am working on is included as a screenshot and I would appreciate feedback.

    Looks good, you totally got the tf2 style :)

    But the shape of the spy should be in another color imo, and i dont like how the frame has the same color as the middle.

    The spy poster was literally a test following a guide every step of the way. I don't think it turned out too badly for a first try, I might include it in the end for someone might find a use for it. (and yes, I accidentally applied the noise filter twice)

    I've made a new one, which I'll include as a screenshot. Feedback?

    I know you captured the theme perfectly, because I didn't even notice the aliasing at first. Great work. :)

    They're sort of rough around the edges, but I really love the style/concepts.
    nice work!


    (btw spies work EVERYWHERE)

    I really like the first one, if you're not satisfied with it I think it's worth re-doing!

    Keep in mind that even if they look rough as images they usually blend in much better in-game. Take a look at some of Valve's vtfs sometime and you'll see what I mean.

    I'll definately get to work on doing several new posters and probably redoing the first two that I've already done. Thanks for the support guys!

    These look really cool, nice and simple TF2 stylee and ting :D

    Just a thought but the third one looks like it reads 'PROGRESSJON'. I know that's the font's fault not yours but I'd consider using a different font for that phrase.

    Otherwise top job, I look forward to using them :)

    An awkward mix of Aliasing and Smoothing. How are you making your Smoke Stacks? Are they Vectors or Coloured Bitmaps, because they should definitely the former to match the Text. Also, turn down the noise, I really like the Ideas and the style you've captured, but you need to pretty it up a little more still..
