    Hello ! So I have been making some art work for my map that I am planning, I will make a Source Film Maker animation for it too.

    So I have made 4 pictures (as of now)

    Some are good and some are bad. Tell me what you think.

    (PS. I have not converted them that they would work in Source SDK yet, but you will be able to download them soon if you want)

    I made version with weather effects as needed !

    You've done a great job on these, but they honestly look like they belong on an update page rather than a wall. Maybe you should add some scratches or weathering?

    Very nice, though I have to admit I agree with Captain Clam, they look like they need some weathering for them to be on a wall.















    and not an update page.

    I opened the spoiler, but saw only captions, no pictures.

    What I think is that you should stop making threads with binary polls when you want detailed feedback.

    Also, images don't work in spoiler tags. Just put them in the post, the forum will automatically resize them.

    They look good, but I see a bar code on one of them. TF2 is set in the 60s, but bar codes didn't become a thing until the late 70s. I am old enough to remember when they were new, around the time when I was a pre-teen or early teen.
    Some nit-picks: Both Red and Blu have a similar motif, stars in the border around a circle. That's not a bad motif, but they should be different from each other. Also, for the Blu one, I think that "Missile Department" would sound better than "Department Missile".

    The 'bomb' text looks weirdly deformed and the bomb itself doesn't seem to be centralised? Some of the stars around the outside are blurry for some reason.

    'Department Missile' is a weird name. I assume it's meant to be the other way around but it doesn't read like that. Most people read left to right, not the other way around, so flip the words over.

    I'm not sure why there is a giant empty space under 'BLU Missiles'. Consider moving the text down? Also, the text isn't centre aligned and I find the squished font a bit off-putting.

    I see one more minor problem: the dollar sign needs to go in front of the number, not after.
    Remember, we're picking this apart to try to help you make it better, not to attack you.

    Bah! I say, but the dollar sign where it makes sense, where it actually is when you read the text out loud.
