Nice work FlashPV

As for DQM.... It looks great but I thought it might look better this way.

Keep the whole screen in mind when the background and main DQ logo are added to it. The "Monsters" should be centered IMO since it accompanies the main DQ logo and not so much the Caravan Heart logo.

By God... Terry is uglier than sin in DQM... I always get sick when I see DQM's cover... I had thought it was only for the American version of DQM that they used the CG art...
Who will quote me next?

That's true but that capital H gets in the way and makes it look cramped in my opinion. Maybe if you could move the Caravan Heart part down a bit.

Could always shrink the H a pixel or two:



Or use the halfsize H I used before:




Actually I think I prefer the two pixels shorter one. Doesn't look too bad:

Absolutely!

I was just about to write that I'd need to see how it looks complete with the background when you posted this.

Thanks  :thumbsup:

It's my new year gift. If you want to use it in your translation then this screen should help you.

Sure, I'll use it in the translation. Hopefully I'll finish it in 2008!

Perhaps the 'O' in of and the 'T' in the should be lowercase? Only important words should be capitalized in title I believe.

Perhaps the 'O' in of and the 'T' in the should be lowercase? Only important words should be capitalized in title I believe.
The most common way to title case is to capitalize all internal words (i.e. the first word is always capitalized), except articles (e.g. the, a, an), prepositions (e.g. of, in, on, at), conjunctions (e.g. and, but, if, then), and forms of "to be" (e.g. am, are, is, be, was, were). Sometimes pronouns and possessive pronouns will be uncapitalized as well.

More importantly, it's closer to the spirit of cursive (especially the kinds with more curious capitals) to not let capital letters crowd the rest of the writing out, aesthetically. Rules of grammar be damned! They're just guidelines for what looks good.
we are in a horrible and deadly danger
