Art Gallery | Trying out new thumbnails.
So I'm not a GA by any means, and these were made in Sony Vegas (a video editor), but I'd still like some feedback.
I started with just a simple text over a screenshot from the video, then I added a blur effect, and now I'm using a blur along with a bump map over both the text and the screenshot. These are rendered at 1280x720, but I screenshotted them in the editor window so they're scaled down a bit. The grey border is also from the editor, and not part of the final images.
Newer with bump maps (still playing with this):

That is the latest one, the versions were just to specify that I find each consecutive one an improvement.
What do you think overall though?

Overall; it could be a lot better. Like, the quality seems lq (probably because of the blur). And I think the text would look a lot better in the middle IMO. But other than that, i think it's good .

Remember though, this is for a thumbnail. Since the episode number isn't the main focus of the thumbnail, IMO it looks better off to the side.
The quality of the image comes from the direct recording, which is at 720p in the editor. I could reduce the effect of the blur, but I'm not sure.
This is what it looks like without the blur:

overall they are all great. as the versions go up, the picture gets better so thats why v3 is the best.
