RuinValor C# Art Title Screen SlimDX Minecraft Voxel Engine Game DX11
I created some title screen art previously that seems a bit dated now. I have been noticing a lot of people who creating styles similar to the DOTA 2 theme. I did not want to be associated with that crowd so I wanted to play with a new concept for the menu art/title screen. When creating it I want to really focus on the letters and make them stand out so I knew I needed a serious contrast between the title and the background.
I have always loved the sci-fi ( I call it that because that is when I first saw it ) white out background but I have never used it in any of my work. I figured why not give it a go and it turned out nice. I saw the need for a bit more noise otherwise it would look a bit too much like a clean sci-fi menu so I added the clouds. For the final product I will add in some particles that spawn like a fire/flame and travel from the left lower corner to the center area. I might have a highlight of red in them or blue... not sure at this point.
Let me know what you think.
**EDIT** fixed with the small updated version
