Default Nazdrovya!

Okay, kids, here's me having a beer and screwing around with Photoshop. Next up out of my brewery is a red ale, so I was trying to develop a label for it.

Whattaya think?



(Try to ignore the "delicious" bit; so I'm biased. )

Cheers,

Bob

That's pretty darn cool. If I remember my Cyrillic though the first word translates: KRDZPCH

Thanks for the kind words!

The "Cyrillic" is actually a font called "Worker Poster" I might mess about with Cyrillic later on; what I really wanted was something understandable to the Western reader.

Cheers!

Bob

As spelled it's nonsense. he means красная звезда (red star), but spelled with cyrillic characters that look similar to latin characters. Like replacing R with Я

пока,

Виктор

You've gone to this much effort, might as well make the final effort to fix minor mistakes. You wouldn't want to look like a 'two pizza' now, would you?

Don't toast with "Na Zdorov'ye!"

People who don't speak Russian usually think that they know one Russian phrase: a toast, Na Zdorov'ye! Little do they know that Na Zdorov'ye! (nuh zdah-rohv'-ee; for health) is what Russians say when somebody thanks them for a meal. In Polish, indeed, Na Zdorov'ye! or something close to it, is a traditional toast. Russians, on the other hand, like to make up something long and complex, such as, Za druzhbu myezhdu narodami! (zah droozh-boo myezh-doo nuh-roh-duh-mee; To friendship between nations!) If you want a more generic Russian toast, go with Za Vas! (zuh vahs; To you!)

I didn't know that! I'll have to change it.

For some reason, I can't get Cyrillic to work in Photoshop, not even pasting directly from Character Map. Thus the goofy pseudo-Cyrillic font I found free on teh Intarwebs.

See? This is why we post our stuff to HBT! Thanks!

Bob
