Then the large booklet(which was very nice in content) had too much 'Sharpen'ing in it. This is evident in the Darwinia release pic iirc, where was bright light in the middle and pillars in the sides. Sharpening is visible imho quite clearly in the edges of the pillars, surrounded by bright halo.
Hello zokier, I did the graphics for the Multiwinia manual, game cover, art booklet and so forth. I don't know about the Darwinia manuals as that was before my time, but on the eSofa has quite a bit of text in my copy.
As I haven't seen the final printed version of Multiwinia (will be picking mine up at the launch party) I'm very curios if the manual, cd print and game cover turned out alright (you send off things to the printers and cross your fingers that it turns out how you intended it to). With the art book some of the earlier images wern't really as high res as I would have liked them (guess you don't take high res images in pre alpha). Most images needed to be adjusted as else they would be a bit flat in color when printed and some sharpend. I did test prints, but you never know how the close the printer you test it on is to the one the real printers have. Long stoy short, I'm sorry to hear about the sharpening but hope its not too bad.
I agree with you that the details really makes a differences and I hope that it shows
