Ah snatching this post!!! XD

 

Anywho. Hi! I'm Alishya. ^_^ Just dropping in on your new gallery. :)

 

 

SO off to drooling over your work....

 

 

:wub: *sighs in content* Your work is amazing as always. The filtering and the coloring are just beautifully amazing. :hearts: (I wish there were more words than what I just said because it doesn't even fit the description of just how magnificent your graphics are.)

 

Well, I'll go now... cry over my stupid graphics.

 

Tah-tah! :hiwave: <-- pretend thats a bye wave lol. :P

Hey :) I'm here for your critique! I'm going to structure it a bit differently than normal because I have little things to say but they're lots of little things and I think it would be quicker and easier for me to help you this way :)

 

- you must watch out for text, you often place it on a single line and it seems floating in the graphic like in your first two blends, your lirael banner, your missing a wishing well ch img, etc. 2 things with this:

1. when you are putting a quote remember to use tracking as it helps the quote look a LOT neater as you have done in some of your other graphics. :)

2. make sure the text isn't just floating, you want it to be anchored somewhere EXAMPLE: the crystal palace chapter image is PERFECT text. The text is nicely anchored and isn't 'floating' :)

3. examples of how to anchor to start you out. In +this chapter image a better place for the text would be below her chin to the right of her neck or in +this graphic it would be better placed in line with the girl's nose, closer to the focal point.

Graphics such as +this, +this, +this or +this have perfectly anchored text so I know you're capable of excellent text placement. :)

 

-careful not to be too repetitive in terms of your composition. All three of your blends are one person in the lower half of the blend and in the middle with negative space around them. In your two sigs your people are placed in the same place. In your first five banners and some of your others the character is placed in the middle as well. Try and branch out and try some new compositions! Have two people close together, one big one small, small people, large people, close ups, rotate the people, etc. etc. +This is better in terms of composition as it's more creative :) keep on this track!

 

-Careful with repetitiveness in your chapter images as well! The first three are girls surrounded by whitish/bluish empty space. My main piece of advice overall would be to try different compositions and also try using more men or at least more than one person per graphic to mix things up.

 

-Your bottom three banners are FANTASTIC and also your bottom chapter image. These four graphics are definitely the best in your gallery and you should continue to use those as examples for colouring, text, composition. These graphics have more of a wow-factor and are truly beautiful graphics so keep up the great work :)

 

I hope this helped somewhat, PM if you have any questions

This helped a lot. Thank you so, so much - I've cleaned a lot of them out and have gone on a graphic-making spree lately, and I've been keeping your comments in mind, especially re: comp and text. Hopefully I've improved!

 

Thank you again. This was so helpful.

Aah! Your use of contrast on people's skin is just perfect and so surreal. :D Your Emma CI's contrast is just absolutely positively spiffing. :P I love your style! :D
