hey i've come from the pay it to the gallery thread.
you definitely have a well defined style going on here, and some of it is working so well.
lemme go section by section.
the first & second set of icons are sublime, and the colouring is just ridiculously on point. creative cuts and compositions, it all works so well.
the third set, i really liked but there were a few where the light texture was either too strong, like in 1, 3 & 4. In 1 in particular, it doesn't blend out nicely, and looks a bit out of place. in 4, i can't tell if that's text in the right hand corner, and it's a little distracting.
+this and +these are my favourite signatures. the text is incredible, the use of exclusion in the first one is so on point its unreal. the composition of the first one i linked in particular - wow! i also liked the newest/topmost one, but because of all the text being in many different places/different angles, i found it hard to focus and find a focal point. i found +this one over saturated, and wasn't sure the text colour worked with the rest of it. also i'm not sure what those white flecks on his face are?
i loved +this blend best - it's simple, but it's also got a ton of things going on. the monochrome works with it, not just for the sake of it, and it just comes together beautifully. every time i look at it, i find new things i love. i'm probably the only one not that keen on +this so you can almost certainly ignore me about it, but i'll tell you why anyone. simply, i'm not sure i really 'get' it. what emotion or feeling or thing is this blend trying to convey? it's got no real mood. the animation felt unnecessary, the text in the animation moved to quickly and i had to watch a few times to catch on to what it said. way, waaay too quick. i felt like, if you really wanted it to be animated, it would work better with just white noise, and maybe the uh, what are they called, the network being out screen thing haha. and then there's the angel statue, and then there's the hand, which i didn't even see until right now. and then the second bit of text that i can't really read - wae children? it's just a sensory overload and i didn't enjoy it. i would take out the angel and the hand for sure, and maybe deepen the red of the clock to help it blend more easily and not distract. but that's just me, everyone else seems to like it haha.
i don't really see a weak point in your banners, they are all amazing. the first, second and last are my absolute favourites. strong colour, great text that works so well, the compositions are great. so creative man.
i loved the animated banners, and +this really stood out as creative among your animated banners.
such amazing stuff in here, will be back for sure <3
