Viper's Idea Exchange-Check it

Recommended Posts

Only post if you are at least an intermediate writer(Understands basic lettering)

 

Ideas for Effects Backgrounds. Possibly leading to letter structure.

 

This goal of this thread is to get new ideas, get out of your comfort zone and discover new styles. Most writers find a

style they are comfortable with and stick with it. Boring.

 

So any styles, effects, "ideas" in this thread can be used by anyone, I encourage it. If you use something please post

up the work. Good or not, practice and it will eventually look great.

 

If you see a picture that can be used in a piece POST IT(Check examples first). It may give someone else inspiration.

 

***Effects-You can use one throught the piece or one for each letter. To be used on top of the sketch.

You can have a piece in basicly any liquid(Paint, water, etc)

 

Waves

Similar to the Reflection but I like to think of this effect as the letter dissipating to maybe-a different style/color combo,

or character, whatever.

 

Drips(A)

Bottom of "E"

 

Skeleton(Somehow I liked using this for the S)

 

This style is like the outline thickens and also has shapes in it while the fill does it's own thing.

^^^^Check reflections too, Triangular shades of color.

***Backgrounds/Design around the piece-Great thing here is that the design can go through the piece and change things

Background idea used within the piece.

Peep the beam of blue from the "E" that changes to green halfway.

^^Idea-The stripes that are below the upper part of the "P" can continue through the "E" by changing the colors of the

stripes. Kind of a optical illusion.

^^^Great idea. You can have different shapes/Outside design flowing through piece changing the color/Write your crew name within the piece in different color. Lots of uses there.

I'm trying to bring old/new techniques to the surface. If it has been done, it can be re-invented.

Frosted(That is how I think of it) I've only done it once so far

DSCN0039-1.jpg

The upper part OR lower part is iced over like an iceburg. I have a sketch that is a better example but I don't want to flick it, upload, then post. I'm lazy right now.

 

I plan to create a piece where the letters are windows to an aquarium. Then I'll have people walking in front. inspired by this pic

Wow, Thanks for the compliment. But it's time to go beyond that and create new ideas that will help new writers catch on faster. There are too many bland styles out there AND I wish to kill them all.

^^Def Agreed.

Here is another technique to mix things up-Separate the piece into three strips and make each strip a different color combo or style. I tried to explain the metallic effect for you Phenom but with markers it's a different technique, it's more about blending.

Tesk should be in here with the metallic letters.

 

Another good place for ideas for fill is in rain drops. You can also place them on top of pieces to give it extra depth.
