Main Street U.S.A. by Mr-Bluebird Main Street U.S.A. by Mr-Bluebird
oh, how I've missed making posters! good to be back

:heart: now available as Prints and Iphone Cases through Society6. Yay!

This is the first in a Disneyland series. There will be one for each of the original 5 lands in the park, so I thought I should start by the entrance.
I wanted this one to have an almost neutral color scheme, even though the lines are pretty colorful, I think overall you get a kind of a vanilla feel.. That's how I see Main Street.

With just a few exceptions, these posters will only have lines and the circle in the middle.. it's nice to see what you can make out of a restriction like this.

Disneyland:
-Main Street USA
-Adventureland
-Fantasyland
-Tomorrowland

I'm excited about this series. Since I've moved to the area, I've been at Disneyland a LOT and becoming quite the fan of classic Disney, especially the vintage attraction posters. Keep them coming!

I felt green conveyed better the ice cream feel I was going for. and as I didn't want to use TOO many colors, I didn't include blue

I noticed your intention, but blue is part of the U.S. But I understand aboout the fac of not using too many colors, green is soft and nice.

I commented first on your Adventureland piece and followed the link to this one. What I really like is how you've managed to represent so many different building textures in one piece--brickwork, wood molding, and roof shingles--and even a little hint of ironwork at top center. The use of ivory and pastels is very Main Street, of course, and reminds me of an old-fashioned ice cream parlor. It even looks a little like ice cream with sprinkles.

I think you've pretty much captured everything I tried to convey.
I was constantly thinking about ice cream while doing this, I guess it shows
really happy you like it, thanks!

Man, I ALWAYS love your posters. Can these be available to purchase at hi-res this time?
You should try submitting some of this stuff to Disney and have them take a look at it.

Thank you Patrick, that means a lot!
I've tried so many times (and in many different places) to put my posters for sale. but it always ends up the same way.. copyright issues. I've given up on it, at least for now.
I've never tried sending them anything, but I've already had an artist at Pixar email me regarding my establishment posters

I like it! it's a nice concept and i'm looking forward to the other posters :la:

Lines and circles work very well :nod:
I am not so sure about the gradient on the circle in the middle. the rest of the poster is very clear and clean and the gradient makes the text blur away a bit. I think that is because the font has very thin parts, that mix with the brighter color. It might be better if it was just a solid color in the centre :)

I have the same problem with the gloss effect on Disneyland at the bottom. it looks nice, but i dont think it fits to the rest of the style.

:hug:

that's a standard problem of mine, I can't control my gradient obsession.
I've tried making it a solid color, but I'm not sure, I feel like there needs to be a "light source" in there to make it pop more.
I agree about the font though, I'll see if I can find a thicker one that fits the poster.

thanks for the criticism =)

I love gradients, too :XD: I just put one on everything by default :la:

The kind of font definetely fits very well :nod: It's what I would imagine for a street sign for that street (tho I've only seen the one in Euro Disneyland :B )

no problem :hug:
