Re: The Pyros


This design is for the fire-lovers.

Pi-Rho (for Pyro), and Delta (the symbol often used for heat in chemistry).

This fire effect is getting old.

Sorry, TN - it's a design I did several months ago, while experimenting with the effect, halftones, etc., and it is actually relevant to the design, itself.

I think that if you just used pi-rho it would need less explanation.

I actually considered that, but most frats/societies have three Greek Letters in their name (even if folks only call them out by the first two)...

I have to say that I can start to recognize your entries before I click on them and thats not a good thing. Please stop with the flame and glow effects, you can do better.

Actually there are several artists that I recognize before I click on them. I agree it's not a good thing, very tiring.

It's easy to recognize his designs because he doesn't do any drawing. It's all text and glow and image/photo manipulation.

I've always thought that if he paired up with somebody who was great at sketching but maybe not so much on the coloring/effects they could maybe be the next Drakxxx/CD

Thanks for explaining the Delta, I was wondering.

Thanks - a good criticism.

Actually, I made this design months ago (last August, according to the time stamp), as part of a test-project to teach myself how to do more complex half-toning (right after I learned the fire/flame effects), and this was the first derby that it really fit in. Even the one last week was a couple of months old (and I've got nothing left in the cupboard with flame effects in it).

Sorry I didn't reply sooner, but I've been out of town the past two days with scant connection to the 'net....

I do appreciate the feedback, and I'm always trying to learn new techniques. I've only been doing and real vector artwork the past year and a half, and have started taking a short course in converting drawings into vectors, and better techniques.

Thanks again!
