This is a little class project I'm working on.

I'm struggling with the placement of the text beneath the title. I prefer the overall composition of the left one, but the text doesn't fit within the light beam so I moved things around on the right side.

General criticism also welcome.

I think the font doesn't go very well with everything. Maybe you should try a different font (a bolder, simpler one that stands tall and doesn't bend to the side), and use a different shade of red (if you really want to use red) for the "ABOVE" text. The two fonts are good on their own, but they don't go well together, try to balance them out with other fonts.

Also - why is the random light beam that's coming from the city directed at the UFO? Shouldn't the UFO be doing that? And if the beam really must be coming from the city at the...

I like the yellow - blue colors not usually used in this style, they really clash with the bulma and the plants. Also, the polo logo at the sides. But it lacks glow, its dense and gray, and the statue heads are too safe and cliché, maybe good for a first plane, but simple for a background. Playstation, dreamcast, pokemon and anime? The fact that your art revolves around all of those is the only reason I think you are autistic.

Is the layer transparent, meaning only the border shows?
If so, just go to your blending options and throw a nice gradient or something on it. If not find a transparent border and use it.

Your teacher kind of sucks though, that's poorly animated. Character seems weightless and the walk itself lacks personality.
In order for the character to have weight, a low/recoil position should be keyframed

I was always thinking of making it at least unconventional and distinctive, so I didn't just want to do some cool placement of text with a triangle above it. I've thought about it for a while but I think that there just wouldn't be a way for the client to actually portray the fact that they are roofers if I went with no visuals. I get that roofing is a very ubiquitous business, but I at least want to get some creativity going.
what if you do a shingle pattern somehow, rather than the whole roof

This is by far the most requested shit on this board.

I see a new thread about this effect almost every other day. What the fuck guys
It's a neat effect. And some album effects are hard to do.
I'm thinking that it had a bright light going on from the right side with a subtle 3D effect going.
Not even saying how it's named.

>the image effects done on the cover
It's called chromatic aberration
>How would one go about doing that?
lots of different ways, you will find lots of tutoriales with different methods.
I think grabbing the independent color channels and just moving them around a little is the easiest one.

(assuming it's not bait)
don't use gradients and/or flares on text (unless you have experience)
don't use dark background with dark text and/or a pure white background
it's too boring to look at try adding some contrast (not literally for example changing the size of the word "the")
add space on the sides so it doesn't look cut out
and the font is pretty bad (13 yrl old youtube tier kinda bad)
your use of gradient on the text kicks my butt, the font is the one my friend chose and its on a plain white/dark background just as a base so they can use it on whatever they want! i like the rearranged text u did, idk what u meant by bait

I think the OP is better than pic 2 because of the contrast between forground and background.

The font style is nice being playfully simple, but lacks a consistency throughout, which is mostly visible on the G and O.

The Font colour is nice.

What's up with that rock in the middle and the picture of luggage. Do people really need a picture of luggage at an airport to remind them they're looking at a fucking travel brochure.

Also the family is dull as fuck. Honestly that brochure makes me want to buy a plane ticket to a country far far away from Brazil and go there instead.
yea he has a point. you seemed to have chosen the worst representatives to label brazil.
some generic family taking pictures by the ocean, a rock formation, luggage.

put more of something more closely related to the culture of brazil.

So this brochure is with the main reason to attract other agencys to work with us.
