Re: The Bus Ticket


Hey everyone,

I've started work on my bus ticket and have uploaded a video with the first part of my progress in Photoshop. If you're into seeing someone move a mouse around in Photoshop the link is below. It's 2 minutes long.

Some notes for any future DIY folks wanting to do their own ticket:

  • The font for the header on the ticket is Latin Wide D. Freely available via google.

  • As dmv1066 mentioned, the Greyhound bus photo available here in the forum is not the one used on the original TV prop and even after searching the web I found nothing as good as that one so I've worked on it to get it as close as possible to the original.

  • I played around with the blue tone on the text and other elements and I think I'm close but it's tough to confirm since the photos available have a bit of a color cast. As of now the web color is #3a4a6f

I'm preparing part 2 of the video so I'll upload that when it's ready.
Thanks in advance to everyone who contributed with screen caps and their personal tickets to the site, it's been invaluable.

Edited: added updated Vimeo URL

I finally had some time to prepare part 2 of the bus ticket video and have uploaded it. Check it out at the following link and let me know what you think. It's 2:42 minutes long. Video 3 is being processed right now and I'll have it ready this weekend.

Re: The Bus Ticket


Video 3 of my bus ticket creation is now online emoticon Part 3 here (3:47 min): [sign in to see URL]

I'm now working on the back of the ticket and have a question:

In the following image am I correct to assume the top ticket is just a production test and the middle and bottom images (created by Rollerbal here on the board) are of the version used on screen? The accepted "canon" version?
