Re: Van Helsing Steak and Chop House


I thought this would be a great late entry- mix vampire hunter with meat eatery.

I like the idea but I'm not sure on the execution. I see that you were trying to use a font that simulated a wood cut type effect like your main image has, but the lines are so narrow it makes the text look out of place in comparison. Maybe using a solid font would help bring the image together? Anyways good idea

Thanks, tjost! I was working so hard on the main art, I kinda skimped on the font to get it in with a day to spare. A more solid font would probably have worked here better.

I agree, the engraver font is out of place. Conversely, though, I think the woodcut effect is a bit overdone, too. Spacing it out just a bit would help.

It was my first attempt ever to do a woodcut type effect, so it was a learning experience. I know there are plugins to do this sort of thing, but I simply used some of the tools within Illustrator.

Good tips. Thanks!
