Waaaaay cool Tweek!! I think the tag line is great too.

How about this,

"Destruction is Coming, Find a Way, Make a Home,
Get the Heek Outa Dodge.... Fast"

:lol: :lol: :lol:

A bit of a complaint: the words look horizontal with respect to the image, but not with respect to the car. Is that intentional? (read: am I missing some sort of artistic thing?) It makes it hard to see the "Live" written at the bottom.

It was intentional yes, but after looking at it I don't like how it looks so the PR dept has created a new add with better lighting and logo placement.

I like the realism of that, Tweek. Did you just free-transform it and then change the blending mode? I've always loved looking at those. If I didn't know better, I'd think it was real.

in simple way I did the following

cut image
created 2 new layers
used one layer as template for the uru image
set layer to multiply
adjusted contrast, brightness and colours
set top layer to screen, adjusted darkness to add the highlights.

was just testing out a new tutorial.

Yes Kedri, that is the ad I spoke of. Has it been seen elsewhere? Gaming mags, etc.?

That's a very nice ad (thanks for the scan, Prof). Nice placement, too, considering the target audience. I know DC publishes many issues monthly and has recently become more popular again, anyone know how many readers they have?

Is there any chance that those who have seen it could transcribe the text? Some of it is a bit small for me to read...

I'll say, between the size and the font. I saved the image and zoomed in but it didn't help.

Nice job on the car Tweek but I think you should actually do it on a real car. :lol:

From what I can tell:

-Under the Ahnonay pic: "This time, you are the storyteller. What happens next is up to you."

-Under the Kadish pic: "Solve puzzles by yourself, with friends, or with a whole group."

-Under the Eder Tsogahl (If that's what that Age really is) pic: "Wondrous, immersive new worlds and puzzles are added as the story unfolds."

-Under all three: "Massively organic, the next Myst adventure evolves every day. URU Live expands and adapts as players act and react, creating a new experience for one and all. What story will you tell? Join in, explore and help forge an entirely new Myst story: yours."

I believe the three somethings are "wondrous", "immersive", and "organic" in that order :)
