file So, I've been at it again... [Yet another background and layout thread]

I had the privilege of being a sounding board for Ke while he began his work on his Amaranth layouts. We didn't agree on the layout of the cards for the most part, but I super admired his clan backgrounds. Thanks to the miracle of Photoshop, I've been able to remake a reasonable facsimile of his clan backgrounds for a more full layout artwork.











I'm also working on library cards. It's tough to strike a balance between a functional evolution, while still paying respect to previous iterations.



as always, comments and criticism are welcome!

The little dividing bar on Al-Ashrad and Govern are nice. Maybe a little thick, but I like the idea. Magic recently implemented something similar separating rules text from flavor text, which is something I've thought they should do for a while.

I personally think the vampire's title should be on a separate line from their clan and sect. Titles are keywords, clan and sect are not.

Edit. Backgrounds are OK - Toreador needs to be pinker - but why not full art? Why keep the oval frame? You had the 'clan colors' replace the marble stripe on the side. That's way better IMO.

I really dislike that green bar where the vamp's name goes, especially when it blends into the clan background. I also find that colour green does not work well with most of the (here presented) background colors.

I also find the size of the clan icon a bit too big. And the overlap of illustrations and text boxes looks odd and sloppy.

That being said, i do like that the vamp bacground goes all the way under dicipline icons. And most of the new backgrounds look cool, other than Toreador one...

That's what i miss about pre cam ed vamps. The colors really help distinguishing the clans... And the wow factor.

I like the look with the exception of the green name bar. Maybe it would look better if it extended to the edge? I'm not artistically inclined, so sorry to judge your work, but that part feels "off" to me.

The toreador color is too close to the ventrue and lasombra for my taste.
