    You two are impossible, you only stick up for each other. Here is my critique. The first one looks very cool but why is there a big white chunk in the corner? Second also looks good but hand and mic are too bright they detract from the bubbles. Third just doesn't blend well. Here is a guy sitting in the dumps with goofy strokes orbiting him, blue glowing hands and stars at the bottom. What's that about!? :)

    I'm not impossible, if you knew me on other sites you'd know I critique everyone's work.
    The big white chunk is in the corner because I was too lazy to work out little quirks.
    Here's how the flow works, the mic to the hand to the bubbles to the face.
    The goofy strokes make flow, the blue symbolizes cold, and stars to make him seem like he's floating in space.
    Now, here's an explanation if you don't understand what these pieces are one bit.
    I'm someone who takes this stuff seriously, I don't work for five minutes then quit.
    Designs like these take a while for concept and I use a lot of my own effects.
    One day, it's gonna for my designs people are writing checks.
    So just listen stuff that I spit while speak to you.
    Maybe one day, you'll become as good as Seta, Exyst, and I too.

    LOL, nothing personal. Last one just doesn't work for me. :)

    Glad you take a lot of time dedicating yourself to your art. As for being as good as you and the others since you guys seem to hang out you're obviously going to give good comments to your friends. Since you're all such tough critique-rs you wouldn't want to be enemies with each other. ;)

    Lol, my last post had some grammar issues. >.<
    Actually, like I said, on other sites I critique everyone's work even theirs. They just haven't posted anything on this site so you guys couldn't see that I have. ;P Believe me, if you joined real design sites you guys would get much harsher critiquing than this.
    If the last one doesn't work for you, that's okay, but a lot of critiquing art is technical side. You may have an opinion, as I do, but you also need to know that technically something is good when it just doesn't fit you personally.

    On a final note, my stuff isn't really good. Overall, I'm High Novice/Low Mod in the design world. Judged by this scale:

    Novice
    Moderate
    Intermediate
    Semi-Professional
    Professional

    Overall, most everyone here is looow novice. Seta and Exyst are mostly Solid-Low High Novice overall.

    Mhm. Competing against other designers helps you learn.

    1>big white chunk yes looks bad, I think the focal could be in a better place than that. It's black and bright white in the background with too much contrast and out pops up red. I think the color could be a bit more better than that

    2>I think that white mike piece could be darkened a bit because it is way to distracting.I don't like the big black emptiness over there and maybe you can rotate the fracticals so that it may actually seem that it is indeed coming out of his mouth

    3>I like it, especially the pen tooling however, maybe sharpen it more, I think it is blurred a bit too much
    As for the box he is sitting on, the back of it is very blurred while the front is sharp, took me a while to figure out what it was maybe just leave it as it is as a part of the focal? I see the tires in the background but I also see the badly erased space stock

    Art is subjective and it depends on the opinion of the person who is looking at it.

    GTFO. For real, don't post when you don't know sh**. >.>

    First off, these are all better than the stuff you make. For real, don't bring that "crap" into here when you can't do simple stuff.

    Classing art is subjective, art itself is not subjective. You can like a piece, you can not like a piece, it's your opinion, but there are technicalities you must follow when creating art and criticizing it. Things like:

    Depth
    Flow
    Composition
    Concept
    Blending
    Lighting
    Atmosphere
    Color

    These are all artistic elements. >.>

    Now, now, don't get cocky.
    He already knows well that I've critiqued all tags shown here on different sites.

    Some people may not like leonardo di vinci, its up to them. You can't tell them that they are wrong. It's not your place to judge people on their opinions. So I say your work is crap and I don't care if the whole world thinks you are the best, most talented GFX artistand you saying you are the best High Novice/Low Mod, because believe me you're not.
