Not sure if I shouldn't have kept the Dune font all over though...

Superb! Well Done!
Leto II is gone for good, except for OM. The "pearl" was just that; a miniscule portion of what Leto was, and not a compressed version of the whole. The pearl that the worms have do not make them Leto, or in any way similar to him.

thanks !

I think I'll try it all Dune font though, I reckon the colours and text should be enough for anyone to get the reference... And I'm pretty sure DuneFishUK will have something to say about having so many fonts on one pic ^^

ps : feel free to use it, of course !

Squash ?
I don't know what you're talking about ^^

Thanks for the .png !

I'm not too happy about this part though Image, a bit too noisy, which is why I thought I could do what I did for "DJIHAD" to rewrite the "I WANT YOU" and harmonize the lot.
(I wrote it with Word, then highlighted the text with the secondary colour, copied my screen to paint to upload the image and put it in pixlr where I used the select tool to cut around the letters)
And also, arrange a bit the bottom part, maybe use the colour of the sand to blend in the background of the "recruting station" bit.

I personally feel that this message board, Jacurutu, is full of hateful folks who don't know
how to fully interact with people.

good point, I kinda thought it could be misinterpreted since the word carries a much more ominous meaning thanks to you know who, but since you've raised it I guess someone else might...

I liked the way the sentence rolls, and also for pratical reasons of space and font sizes.

But precision is all so this is not over !

EDIT TO ADD
Image

FOR O.H. JIHAD :mrgreen:

(just realized I added the "D" when it's not written that way in Dune... Darn !)

How are you doing the text? Looks a bit wibbly :?

If you're print-screening it, type it out as big as possible, magic wand it, then re-size it. Also, have you found Layer Styles (right click on the layer in the Layers box)? Outer glow with maximum hardness will work and should look much more sexytastic :)

yeah it's wibbly cause I'm doing the colour shade by hand, to my shame I'm still using PixlrEditor...

Thanks for the tips I'll give it a go... once I figured out what it means ^^

Well I do have the Gimp somewhere, I guess one day or another I'll have to give up wobbling :lol:

This is in pixlr (like I said in the other thread, they've just directly copied half of Photoshop :P)

It's definitely worth your while learning GIMP or PS - right tool for the right job just makes life easier :)

I see...
I have Pixlr in French so I didn't realize at first what the layer styles were !

Thanks again for you help, that's the best way for me to learn, by trial and error (well more error than not ^^)
