Right now, the explosion is the only thing the reads well and if you really look hard, you can make out the rest... I want it to be like, "Whoa!" and not like, "Huh? Oh, I think... ohhhh."
That's kind of the way I felt about the preview image on p. 56, but I figured it was more of a photography issue than a print issue. You really have to have a tripod and long exposure to capture it well in my exerience. What is the plan for this, if you don't mind me asking? I assume it involves a re-draw somehow since I don't think you can just make the ink "glow more." It may be a bit of a catch-22. If you make the cloud stuff more prominent for the dark, you may lose the subtle quality in the day. But what the hell do I know ? I think we all appreciate that you're trying to get the most out of these.
In person, the GID is noticeable, but subtle enough that unless you know what you are looking for, or have a reg right next to it, you wouldn't notice it much. As far as the particular ink, I defer to the printer's knowledge and I trust that guy to no end.
I would rather notice it a bit more and be wowed when it glows, then barely notice it in the day and night.
I sent a beefed up version to the printer last night(I don't have to redraw the whole thing to beef it up ) and I'll wait for his opinion. Martin has been really excellent about collaborating on this and when you see it for yourself in person, you'll have him to thank as much as me.
