Re: Jeyl's TNG "Episode of the WeeK" Banners

In order to help make the banners a bit more consistent, I've decided to do a test to see which color and black shadow placement would be best suited for the banners. Since I come up with several examples, I decided to share them to see which ones you like the best.

COLOR

Test #1


The color presented here was copied from the color used in the opening credits. Has more of a grayish tone to it than the others.

Test #2


This color was captured from the episode "The Bonding" since it's the most recent episode in HD on TrekCore's photo library.

Test #3


This is the stylized take. I took the general color from Test #2 and simply bumped the brightness up a bit.



SHADOW PLACEMENT

Test #1


This has the least amount of shadow in it.

Test #2


The shadow layer has been moved down one click down and one click to the right. It's simple and sharp, but might be too conflicting.

Test #3


This is the shadow layer being placed directly behind the title with the "Stroke" level increased.

Test #4


The shadow layer with the stroke level has been moved three clicks down and two times to the right.
