    So... new 6 vs 9 match coming up. Instead of signing up new faces, this event has alumni Pubstars picked from previous 6 vs 9 matches to fight once more with competitive players. Fun fun fun stuff!

    Anyway, I'm making the poster for the event and I'd like to get input because I'm pretty much in a low level of inspiration (aka lacking creative drive to make something look amazing) at the moment... :blushing:

    As usual, I want to make a western-vintage type since it's like "going back to where it all began" kind of theme considering the event is bringing back old Pubstars to play again.

    I'm currently working on the title logo (i.e. "Clash of the Steam Titans: All Stars - SPUF69 2010") so most things you see there are placeholders. Everything is too simple and minimalistic for my taste so I'm open to suggestions on designs from the TF2mappers here :) Thanks in advance!

    New version:

    Changes:
    - Gave Engie a hat
    - Edited the Demoman
    - Changed the bomb the Demoman set
    - Added lots and lots of match info below
    - Clash of the Steam Titans All Stars logo
    - Changed the "Line Up" section
    - Added Sponsors and Guest Performances
    etc....

    I would have been in that as the pyro if I wasn't on this team I'm on! D:

    On a side note, looks fine, but maybe add some more age look to the edges and corners and stuff.

    BLU Demo's hat is RED, picture sucks because of it. /thread

    [seriousmode]The posing here is great and helps convey what the match is about, great job.[/seriousmode]

    And HL2 Gascan? Took me a while to figure out who was sitting on the chairs, but overall I really dig the pose.

    Nice to see some old faces here! :)

    Anyway, yeah I screwed up on the date! *facepalm* But at the moment I'm making the changes necessary and doing the little tweakings to make it look good :)

    Expect the new version soon!

    I like everything but the pipebomb-canister-thingy on the right side. The faceposing is great tho.

    You aren't online at the moment so I'll type it out here:

    - Remove the Server IP. The people playing in the game will already know it.
    - The Source TV IP is tf2tv1.apoplexyservers.com:27020. There might be a second relay as well, that IP is tf2tv2.apoplexyservers.com:27020
    - The Mumble Server IP is 64.120.126.120. The Port is 64841
    - The competitive roster may be subject to change. Details later, but just put a brief disclaimer under the comp roster list in the poster (something like "Roster subject to change"
    - Posing, artwork is amazing. You've done it again :D

    -Sandvich uses the Bonk Helm.
    -Peppy Hare uses the Tyrant's Helm
    -Crinkz doesn't use a hat.
    -Velkira uses the Fro
    -Ho-Ho-Ho! doesn't use a hat.
    -I use the Ten Gallon.
    -Frymon uses the Tyrolean
    -Ziltoid uses the Sola Topi
    -Dark Necrid uses the Billycock

    -Also, Yz50 is playing, instead of Tyranny.

    Goddamned amazing. Big thanks to your posters, they usually help hype up the games. I also arranged with eXtine for your posters to get on the community fortress site too, when he comes online.
