Hi all!

I'm getting one of those big roll-out posters done for Salute this year so I've been working on the art and would love it if you could have a quick look and let me know what you think.



It'll be two meters tall, so a fair size really!

A big question is on the colours - my laptop isn't great for checking colours, and I'm also a tad colourblind Embarrassed
The back is meant to be cream, but I'm concerned it's got a pinkish tinge at the moment...

Colours look good to me. The knight seems to stand out a bit, is he in black? If so maybe have his linework in a dark brown so he melds better. I'm loving the overall design though.

I really like it, the knight does stand out but that makes it more eyecatching at a distance.

I asked a few people using my computer screen and iPad, and the general consensus was yes, it's a little pink (but only just). No one minded it though, as it ties it in to the rest of the poster in terms of overall tone anyway. I quite like the black Knight, but a Strider would have been much, much better.

(Speaking of which, email about this sent, and if you ever decide to make a monochrome Delgon one...)

But then again we don't want Brandlin boycotting the stand at the last minute.  Wink

Here you go, the final version.
Let me know if you think I've done anything majorly wrong, but it's going off to the printers tomorrow after lunch... Hope you like it!

I've shown it alongside the original so you can see what I've changed. I had to start again from scratch as the original corrupted. Please don't tell me if you think the original was better  Wink

Oh excellent, much nicer than the original, especially as all 3 factions (so far) are represented. It'll be good to see it in person.

Looks awesome. I think the changes you made really make it fit in with the style you have put into the rulebooks and having a figure from each of the peoples is a nice touch.

The colours and proportions are much better on the second one, tho I'm not sure about all three factions needing to be on there

I still like the simple line drawing of the knight

But on the second layout

Just to be difficult...

I think the Ink drawing stands out better (good for drawing people in), but the pencil sketches are more in keeping with the style of the game (the ink drawing is a bit cartoony). So I'm not sure which is better.
