I saw the image above on a web page and i decided to try to re-create it as a printable image that pepole/me could use.

Its kinda a WIP, since i haven't (not sure if i will) added the bullet holes and i think im gonna make the colors more washed out like the image.

Since this is kinda made for printing i shoulda made it 300 dpi ? Correct ?
Crap... I made it standard 72, or what it is...
Yeye, it looks good anyways :)

Yeah, I'd say add a grunge texture on overlay and you're pretty much done :)

Make the text under Gamer at Work larger and less yellow, throw a grunge texture on it, change the dpi to 300 and I'd say it's ready to print. :)

Q: Changing the dpi is all i need to do ? :P
Like i was thinking i had to change then redo everything ?
Also, i used the original as a reference, but suddenly the top text was a bit big, but i thought this turns out good anyways.

Q2: When you say larger text, what should i make smaller ?

Q3: A specific yellow tone you would suggest?

Q4: Any specific grunge texture you want to suggest?

---
Im asking for suggestions since i spent quite alot of time to find the fonts.
The first one was easy, and the second "gamers at work" was pretty easy once i found out it was under the stencil category :P

A: Yes just change the DPI, Image, Scale Image.

A2: Don't make any of it smaller, just redo it and make the "Killing Enemies" through "Blowing stuff up" text bigger.

A3: Something like #ffff59

A4: It's got to be really big because changing the DPI to 300 will effect the images you import. Try some of the packs on MediaMilitia.

I meant make all the yellows paler. That texture isn't working, it just looks like concrete. Try one of these: http://graphicsfuel.com/2011/09/intense ... -textures/

Or you could just get the original poster.

Like what David said, the image looks concrete because of the texture. It looks good for me. Some texture may be better if you want it to look something else. The strength of yellow will not be that much once it is on paper (may depend on the ink) so I think the first is just fine. Lighter makes it less solid for a caution. The sizes are also okay for me except to the texts near the center because they are left out by the big ones. :wilber:
