Not from Jersey by Joey-Zero Not from Jersey by Joey-Zero
Just more of an exercise with type, halftones and more subtle use of textures. Didn't know what to work on, so I just figured I'd build something around my gamertag. Nerdy, but fuck you man.

Kind of an inside joke. For some reason, whenever I started getting into shit-talking sessions with people on xbox live, they automatically start referencing Jersey shore... Don't know why, the accents are way different; but then again, I wouldn't expect these middle-of-nowhere-shithole-I-only-know-what-MTV-teaches-me assholes to know any better.

That's my gamertag. My friend's father used to call me that when I was younger because he'd hear me swearing like a truck driver outside.

oh.... -_- I had a feeling that's why.
I have tourettes that why I asked.

Little triva.
Did you know less that 10% percent who have tourettes cuss (So it rare and very uncommon)
Tourettes is vocal and motor tics.

XD Love the pic, sorry for the info. I am trying to get people to realize it not just cussing (I hate movies)

I actually know a little bit about tourettes, for real. It's just a nickname that stuck out with me.

Okay.
I believe you, my dream is just to make sure people understand us lol.
It so disappointing when people get excited I have Tourette's because they think I cuss then gets upset and walks away when I try to explain

I gotta hit you up on MW2, man, I'm not too awesome but if you need a bullet hose, I'm your man. RPD, AT4 and a heartbeat sensor is the usual gear, but I'm decent with a Scar-H, and I can work a sniper rifle pretty decent.

I straight merk with either the tar-21, akimbo g18's and the semtex. Basically any of the fully-auto AR's or the Aug LMG with Holographic sight really. UMP, p90 or the uzi for smaller maps. Marathon, cold blood and ninja pro (silent footsteps) all day!!!

My main kit right now is RPD with foregrip and Heartbeat-Sensor, and I usually carry a stinger around just to piss people off. Obviously, Bling Pro, but then either Hardline or Stopping Power, and usually Scrambler for shits and giggles. Otherwise, I got a guy with a P90 and a Striker, with Sleight of Hand (mainly for the Striker), cold blood and ninja. Though I did just unlock the WA9000 and, I gotta say, if I get the ACOG for it that'll probably be the only gun I use, I friggin love that thing.

cool stuff man. how did you go about doing the half-tones? i've been working on a few things with them in various forms, and i'd love it if there was an easy way to make them in illustrator.

There's a patterns palette in Illustrator that has basic halftone dots and you can use it as a fill. In CS4 at least it's under window>swatch libraries>patterns>basic graphics.

ah thats pretty cool, i had been making my own swatches that worked the same way by copying and pasting a bunch of little circles. the annoying thing is how you end up with partial dots at the edge of paths. it doesn't look quite right.

i just got cs5 recently, and did some digging around, and theres another library in symbols calls dot pattern vector pack. it has a few blotchy things that you can expand to the component dots as paths. it looks like things that have been scanned or half-toned in photoshop and then live-traced. seems like the way to go if it's oddly shaped and you need colors other than black.

I did... I can't remember if I still got it though. I might have traded it in. Nowadays, it's 90% CODMW2, with some Red Dead sprinkled in. I started playing Assassin's creed 2 again on the PS3. I absolutely love that game. Can't wait for the Brotherhood joint. I'll probably get that for the 360 though.
