Oh wow! That poster is so cool, and very reminiscent of late 90's YA horror literature.

This is it! This is the poster that sucks...

Oh wait...

No it doesn't. It's awesome! As usual! Love the fonts you used. Anya looks pretty scary. Her demon make up is great but she does not look hot, lol.
I was scrolling and saw the first part and got genuinely worried!!!..
Thanks again! Yes the make up is cool, I did notice as I was searching for images that its very different from later seasons make up.
Nothing can stop me finding her attractive!:rolleyes:

Your posters are great!

Where do you get your screencaps? I know you use some promotional images for some posters and they are generally higher quality to begin with, but most btvs caps are so old and low quality and you make them look really good! How do you do it? Filters? Topaz?
Thanks.
Yes, finding decent images is difficult, I only use the largest ones I can find, hence why some of the posters are not what I had planned originally!
All these posters start off at 1500x2000 at 240 and are reduced to 600x800 at 72 when I upload them, which helps slightly.
But mainly its just lots of adjustment layers in photoshop.
Each image is different and needs different treatment and even certain areas of images need some adjustments.
I have half considered doing a sort of animation showing each layer as its done (not a tutorial as such), not sure if anyone would be that interested though?

I like it, the title in the tree roots is a great idea. The only thing I would say is that the title needs to be a little more clearer particularly the A and the M. The Ends bit is fine, though maybe shorten the root bit on the N just a little bit so that it falls more in line with the E and D.

I wasn't sure it worked... It was difficult getting it to look like letters and retain a natural (ish) root look! But I see your points. I did try thickening the roots but that looked wrong...maybe I should scrap this one?

Don't scrap it because it is a good idea. Maybe take out the root bits that are joining the A and M together so that each letter is more easily definable and thin down the thick root bit on the E so it's more in line with the rest of the letters?

I'm going to redo this. I wasn't happy with it and I shouldn't of posted it. It'll probably be totally different next time! :mad:

Oh, come on! It looks great although it took me a few seconds to read Amends in the roots. But it's very fitting of the episode. I don't know how to explain it, but the episode reminds me of peace and warmth, and the poster does as well.

It looks really cool, makes me think of a horror movie though, like something that'd involve Krampus

Haha, it reminded me of a slasher movie... but maybe that's peace and warmth to you ;)

Two very different impressions, I can see where you both are coming from.

I actually really like the first one, because the roots look more like roots, but I can totally understand why you changed it, as the title is the more important factor.

I really like your style. You always come up with a different idea for each, it's really inspiring :)

I really like it. It's quite unexpected, as this is such a big Bangel episode, I expected Buffy and Angel to be on the poster, but I do like the direction you took it, it's got more of a horror story vibe
