Heres a mock up so you can get an idea, of what I was thinking, can be improved but dont think it looks half bad .
I might put the flaming DFI mascot render I made to the title DFI-STREET.
Here's Review Street
UPDATE: FIXED SHOWCASE, go check it out in the first page, comon I had to pm people to comment, I know some of you saw it, but I need to know what you guys like and what you don't!
Since I ask for comments here Ill provide mine:
ooztuncer: Great work on the render, very smooth, you need to model the details, may I suggest map the bottom then extrude upwards. Like the skull in the back, if you can send that graphic to me please pm me for details.
msmolt: For playing around it certainly is good, the shading on the orb is nice, and would make a cool button. Nice use of socket 754 .
AceGoober: Simplicity is key, and your sig shows that, the flamer certainly is welcomed, and I had a simular idea, yours came out good, so I might just try the concept. I did toy with the idea, with the explosion on the A64 avatar, but didn't bother with the actual text. As far as commercial aesthetics its very nice. Although I personally I am prone to the more flashy graphics, I believe a hybrid between something I made, and more commercial simplicity of your work would be interesting, might wing it later .
For those that don't understand, when I use the word simple its not the negative connotation, but the representation of depth through the use of limited means, IE content without the flash, I experimented with the flashy type graphics, dunno whats next. Perhaps a hybrid. That's it. Later.
**REMEMBER LOOK AT PAGE 1, for Round 1: And those that know me, there will be certainly a round 2, I am going to try to take this once and for all .
