Well, I hang around cgtalk an awful lot... reading, commenting etc. So it's about time I showed something of mine I guess. It's my latest work, for an open source VJ software... hopefully they'll like it and maybe it'll get chosen. Either way I had lots of fun creating this and hope you like it. Crits and comments are of course welcome.

I like it! Only one thing: the copyright notice at the bottom right is hard to see.

Nice work. No crits!

Thx for your replies. The copyright is meant to be very subtle, it won't actually be there in the final.

Thx for the comments guys, it's nice to see how your own work is received. I'll be rethinking my watermark / copyright in the future, thx for the advice.

Nice clean design. However, if this is meant to be the original quality of the pic I find the JPG compression (I assume) especially on the background picture too low. Looks too blurry and nasty at some places. Viewing with Samsung 193p LCD.

thx again guys...

xensos: That's probably the background texture you are seeing, I'll rethink that... you are spot on it looks a little weird. Thx.

Wow, this is fantastic! I marvel at those who are capable of such creations....I haven't the slightest notion of how one would do such a thing. Thanks for sharing :D

That looks very nice and professional. i also like the compositioning very much, guides the eye to the upper right corner, into the light...

one minor point: i don't know if xsenos meant that, but at 45 degrees left-up from the "open", there are a couple of...something, looks like my opinion it doesn't fit quite in...

really great stuff!

Hey, I really like you work, it looks great. I've been using photoshop for a while and I'm having trouble figuring out how you did it. Is it all PS or did you use some other apps? Maybe a quick breakdown of how you made it would cool. Thanks - David

Taltos: yep the background texture is what you are seeing, I'll remove it in the final version. thx for the comment.

TheWhiteRabbit87: There's a gradient in the background which really controls the overall colour. The logo shape in the middle for example was made in 3dsmax and rendered out in greyscale. To simplify a little, as there are actually more layers for fine tweaking, the logo and text are set to 'overlay' blend mode. Without the background colour the whole thing is pretty much greyscale, as I like to use layer blend modes extensively. The grid in the background is made of several renders from 3dsmax. I used the 3d program just as a way to generate the grid lines and to apply a texture such as the > shapes and render it out to follow the same perspective.

Nice design. Good to see some graphic design here on cgtalk. What is it for, tv or web?
Are you going to animate it?
