If I saw this up on the street, I'd think 'Hey, nice poster." If I stare at it and over-analyze (that's what we do here, right?) I'd probably find something wrong with the type, but I'm too hungover to do that.
I'd like to see a different type/font/whatever for the band names...possibly some sort of background in order to IMPROVE it...although improvement is not neccessarily needed in this case. Looks good to me, otherwise!
Seriously, I was thinking Leia Bell the entire time I was doing it. The picture I was working from reminded me of something Leia might draw. I'm glad it comes across that way; even if it lacks the personality.
Great illustration, fine color choices, I still think the text is a bit weak but this is still your best poster. I agree with Tom on the line variation.
I'd also like to state for the record that this is the first time on gigposters.com that someone has agreed with Tom 2 days in a row. Steve (Brutefish) yestrday and me today.
Yeah, I really didn't end up paying attention to anyone's ideas. I just osted the work in gprogress out of tired frustration to make sure it didn't look bad. Thanks for all the positive feedback.
I laid off hand lettering because my scanner is still busted and I don't think my hand lettering could have matched this type.
