Trevor's New Artwork
« on: June 11, 2012, 02:58:02 PM »
Some of you may have seen my old artwork thread, but I've decided to create a new one. The reason being because the artwork in the old thread was from 1-2 years ago, and it wasn't the best. I've started taking time on my emulations, so I created another thread.

With that being said, here is a WeatherStar XL Weather Bulletins screen that I have been working on in the past hour. This is the first time that I haven't used previously made graphics, so everything (minus the TWC logo) was made from scratch by me. I'm especially happy about how the warning crawl turned out.

This is all current, up-to-date information as of the time seen on the emulation.

Fantastic job! :thumbsup: I couldn't tell for sure if you did, but you might wanna add some shadowing or a light black outline on the Severe Thunderstorm Warning text and the NWS text.

Thank you! Yeah, I noticed that almost right after I hit the "Post" button. It'll be corrected next time. :)

I got a little bored tonight, so I whipped this up in GIMP. Let me know what you all think. ;)



EDIT: It actually has some nice white drop shadows behind it, but you can't see them that well.

I think that should be used at the top of the page during the Olympics!
Thanks NBC Comcast for driving me away from TWC. You've officially made TWC junk, NBC Comcast.
