Default Star Trek Style Dedication Plaques

Hello All,

I have started to do Star Trek Style dedication plaques for Starships and Starbases. This is my first attempt at doing something like this and I would appreciate any comments or critiques.

If you like what you see and would like a dedication plaque for you fine Star Trek models, please let me know.

I worked on the design a little bit. I added more texturing to give it more of an aged bronze feel and added a frame.



Here is a TOS version. I know it's not canon for TOS, but I thought it looked better then just having a plaque saying USS Enterprise Starship Class San Francisco Calif. with no insignia.

Do you mean pixels or inches (width x height)?

Hey Viper... I like where you're going with these but I have some professional critiques.

I'm a design director /illustrator myself: http://luckynumber5.com/
http://www.linkedin.com/pub/ron-gamble/17/227/626


Overall they are very good. But your drop shadow is way too big and way too diffused. On a real plaque shadows would not work in that way. In fact I'd ditch them all together.

The orange stroke on the letters is way too thick, I'd cut it in half and make it a pale yellow. That would be the edge of the etched letter and if you think about it ..it wouldn't be orange, it would be a brighter shade of the brass color.

Also, I would tilt all your gradients to a -45˚ angle. This will add a more natural looking gradient for a 3-D effect.

The big trick with creating illustrations like this is to not overdo everything. Tone back the shadows, soften the edges, don't use unnecessary effects. You will find that it quickly refines the image and makes it look more realistic and professional.
