ambyxSend ambyx a message :   :o This is another one of those "early" flyers that i wish would go away. The guys in the band wanted the flat "traced" style so that is what i did for them. They liked it, it took me no thought or time. True this is not representative of my style, which i am still not set on a style with my posters yet. Then i let the bands dictate more of what went into a poster where as now i am starting to control more of that. This is why i like gigposters, it is like going to school again.   2003-05-20 14:03:49
TenebriniSend Tenebrini a message :   True... although my dislike for this poster made me go look at his stuff to see if it was ALL like this. And it's not, so I was in a sense relieved.   2003-05-20 11:05:05
Brute666Send Brute666 a message :   Maybe someone should mention that this isn't Nick's normal style. A newbie might be put-off enough by this thread to not check out his other stuff.   2003-05-20 10:20:33
standardSend standard a message :   I am in no way shape or form against flatness as a visual approach. Only when it looks like it's the result of a preset on some crappy program.
Well, I take that back. Flash's "Convert to Lines" would do a better job than some stuff I've seen.

kozikSend kozik a message :   Electrofork and Grealish are pretty good at it...but you it's basically the new version of crummy tracing...like old Koziks. Except without the massive amounts of LSD and Meth that made it 'street'   2003-05-20 08:48:18
TenebriniSend Tenebrini a message :   It's the latest hip style I guess. I've been seeing this alot in TV commercials. I think it has to do with conditioningg old people like my dad to getting used to computer-esque images so when the computer takes over his TV like he fears he won't know it. Making TV commercials look like a FLASH animation or some shit like that.
It was cool like 5 or 6 years ago when only a few people were doing it. Now it's everywere. Old news.
Yawn.
Mor of an observation than an explanation I guess.
I'm going away now.

goad74Send goad74 a message :   Yeah, I've been noticing this crap a lot lately. Some people know what they are doing, kind of like the stuff in Waking Life, but for the most part it all looks crappy. Of course the typical person thinks it's amazing looking......Oh shit Bone Thugs and Harmony are on Jenny Jones!   2003-05-20 08:45:49
standardSend standard a message :   Somebody needs to explain this art "style" to me, because I just don't understand it. It all seems to be about tracing photos in a vector program and slightly simplifying it and having no understanding of line weight or color. It's like bad clip art CD-ROMs you'd buy at Staples or something.   2003-05-20 08:36:27
