Looking for advice about something...
« on: January 14, 2019, 03:35:02 AM »
Now I've created a poster to promote my comic series Astron's Crusaders, and I feel something's missing. Any advice on how to make this a good advertising poster?

Well, there is a certain emptiness to it. You've got a whole lot of white space there which doesn't feel like it's serving a purpose unto itself. Do you have any plans to fill it in?

I'd say you could zoom in on the characters a bit more/have them take up most of the space to make it more visually interesting.

maybe use a more interesting font , word colour, or word layout other than central.

I had no plans to fill in the blank space, but if that will make it better I will.

Yeah I could play around with the fonts and word color... Sad that I didn't think to do that...

You're the second person to suggest that I zoom in on the characters a bit more, do you mean to make them larger to take up more space?

Yes. You could take the rectangular tool and select an area with it in the proportions of the poster surface to get a feel of how it would look.

that's basically experience that tells you to do these things. I'm constantly learning things that I wonder "why didn't I ever do this before?"
