Unless you're a god with photoshop or 3-d studio, anything liquid is going to look like shit. Plus as seeking said it's so stereotypical "rave". I mean if you're stuck just do as half the other designers out there do and bite some major style. Use a few 45 degree angles, throw in some arrows, and keep it simple. The simpler, the better. I hate crowded flyers. If I didn't have brain freeze I'd give you a link or two, but I'm about to go to bed and don't want to find any good sites for you. Avoid liquidy textures and dumb chracters. just use a cool picture or something.

well, i ended up goin with the liquidy character comin out of the alcohol bottle spillage...so where the hips start he becomes an actual person/character. im probably gonna just ink it in and let there guys do some photoshop magic to it. im gonna have a few more beers and try to think of a new, stupid topic to post. -STAY UP AND GET DOWN!

speaking from club flyer experiance, i would say the best responce (at least from owners/promoters) to characters, and half naked, porn style, girls. personaly, i think they suck, but whatever brings in the money you know. if you want to see some killer examples of such girls, and make spark up some good ideas, check out www.deaddreamer.com

and ask komega, he knows whats up with that shit. i would say that most club flyers end up having a futuristic style to them, so you may want to go with something a bit more original, or since you said the owners werent all that bright, mabye they would be into that

I remember seeing some Club Liquid flyers out here in Los Angeles a few years back. all they had was some a picture of some colored water with some vegetable oil in it to make some crazy looking bubbles. Then they just used that as a background. Maybe I still have the flyer around . If I find it I'll scan it and post for you.

Exactly, exactly, exactly!

It's kind of like painting, you need to work your way up. I suppose it helps that you're passing it off to someone else for the tweaking.
