    Hey, I supplied the PSD, so if you think you can improve (and I make no claims that this was any good to begin with, so you probably can), go wild.
     
  2. This is about as I can get to recreating the same size and shape of the letters.

    edit: fixed.
     
  3. I think it looks better if HD doesn't have the shadowing.

    I agree.

    Also some of the letters doesn't look quite right.
    Maybe we should make a new hybrid font adding the different original S2 ones.

    After taking various improvements into account, I've made an updated title card.

    Changes:
    1. Font colour from white to gradiated grey.
    2. Altered 'A' in 'Emerald' to make it near the original.
    Not much, I know, but it's something.

    Apart from that, it's the same.
     
  6. The shadowing somehow changed it seems. I think the shadowing you had first looks better. Not sure I like the gray-dient either. *shot*

    I liked the gradients that you had for the blue and the yellow in the old pic.

    Okay.

    After the hints from Blue Streak and ^_^ Slaituk, updated title card.

    I don't really think the gradient is necessary, but whatever. It ends up using many more colors than it should, though.

    I sort of like it. It gives the title cards a glossy look to them. Otherwise, there isn't too much that could be done other than smoothen out some of the edges of the triangles.

    In that last one, though, there's something off about the bottom right red part.

    Like it had a gradient that wasn't fully deleted or something. It's subtle. I thought there was a smudge on my monitor.

    I tried my hand at it, not sure how much better (or worse?) it is:

    I think that looks good, although the letters look a bit... blocky. The gradient looks nice, though.

    I'll admit, I like that one the best. The fact the gradient is only seeable where the Sonic 2 HD text is gives it a nice polished look.

    That one looks like a good, I'm not sure how well it would look "animated".

    it kinda has a blurry look to me, namely over the triangles on the red piece

    That was intentional, I think a bit of shadow on the inside looks good.

    Would it be a good idea to have a gradient on the text or just leave it plain white?

    The effect I gave it makes it jump off the "page". Plain white is too flat.

    I really like the lettering effects. The yellow gradient may be too much.
