hey I'm Keeley I've been graphicking for about four/five years now 
I like poems and ponchos, my favourite graphics colouring is blue/purple :)

and I'm trying to incorperate the word 'chiggo' into the English Dictionary

before I die.

 

At the moment I'm at uni studying Writing and English. My tv shows are The Office and Game of Thrones

and my favourite Films are Pan's Labyrinth, Life is Beautiful and Cloud Atlas. 

Now I've gotten that off my chest this is my gallery! Thank you for stopping by :wub:

signatures come second to me after my love for banners

which is why it's anybody's guess as to why they're the 

second thing in my gallery ;w;

but frankly it's not been the same since i made that one
kickass ci as a member artist three/four years ago. i 
think it's finally time we admit to each other it's time to 
call time of death on this relationship.

hey, girly! first of all, omg ily and MARLOES HORST and i can't believe you came to me for crit because i look up to you sooo much, but that's beside the point, because i am here now! hopefully this helps <3
 
signatures:
 
overall, these are super lovely! the colouring and comp on most of them are really nice, but of course, i do have a few suggestions. on the first sig, the brightness of the purple on the main boy is sort of blinding and doesn't quite look right. if it was darker, it might look better, but that's up to experimenting, too. the background purple is nice because the eye doesn't focus on the smaller pictures of the boy. try darker colours when using gradients just to see if it's not so hard to look at.
 
the signature of dane is also a little off. the comp is nice, but the focal point is spread out way too much. I see the transparent boy between the main boy and the text, but at first glance, you don't see him and the eyes are pulled in two different directions. i would suggest pulling the main boy and the text together, and then putting the transparent boy on the other side of the main boy, just because then there's an actual focal point. again, the colouring on the main boy is a little too blinding and i think a darker maroon/red would make it look better.
 
the comp and colouring on the rest of them are superb - there's a focal point on all of them and there's nothing terribly distracting going on around the main focal point. the colouring is also really nice because it's bold but not distracting or blinding and there's lots of nice levels! definitely love +this one the most!
 
banners:
 
the colouring on most of these is really nice as well. most of them have more than just two colours, as well, which adds something really nice, and there's nothing too light or too dark or too overpowering. the only thing that jumps out at me is the first banner - i know you've tried to stay in the golden colour scheme on the girl, but it looks a bit funny because there's nothing else that's really golden like she is. i would suggest adding another colour to her or adding more prominent gold elsewhere just so she doesn't look so out of place.
 
the comp on these is nice too, but at first glances, some of them don't really have focal points. on the first banner, i would pull the text toward the girl so it looks more coherent. if you're going to have a quote farther away from the main part of the banner, i'd suggest to make it smaller and with a simpler font just because it tends to draw the attention away from the title and main focal point of the banner. also make sure the colour of the text doesn't blend in too much with the background of the banner, like on the fourth banner - 'skin' almost blends into the background because it's all purple, whereas the other text and the girl are very prominent. i think 'skin' is supposed to be some of the main text, and it sort of gets lost upon first glances.
 
the focal point of the fifth banner is also a little lost, just because you broke up the text so much. i'm guessing the 'i'll keep you my' is more of a side quote to go along with the text, but because it's part of the same sentence as 'dirty little secret', it makes a bit of a whiplash to drag your eyes so far across the banner just to read the text. if you're going to have the quote as part of the title, i'd suggest putting them closer together, if not directly together.
 
the comp on the rest of them are really nice, and i especially like the bases! +this is my favourite. 
 
chapter images:
 
you said this is an area you struggle in, but i think these are all really nice! the comp is especially great. the first ci is really nice - i like the simplicity and comp of it. the only suggestion i have is to the move the girl and boy farther apart. her shoulder stops in the middle of his body, and it looks a bit off that they're so close together. both of them are also much closer to the left side of the graphic, and it balances the graphic better to have everything really even, especially when the whole focal of the graphic is centered so much. i'd suggest moving the boy out so that his head ends closer to the end of the circle so that he matches the girl.
 
the second one is really nice. the only suggestion i have is moving the text closer together. i said earlier that having the text too far apart when it's part of the same sentence gives a bit of whiplash, and that's what is happening there.
 
the second last one is very nice, if not just a little cluttered. it might just be my own personal preference, but because you can't really see any definite lines on the main girl, she sort of gets blended in with the background too much. it's also a little hard to see the text on the coloured ci, so i'd suggest putting a shadow or black outline around it just to make sure it can be seen. it doesn't have to be anything big, just a subtle hint that there is text there. 

 

the last is quite creative and i really like the text - none of it is taking away the focal point, but the bigger girls seem to be placed awkwardly. i think if they were made to be part of the background it would look better, just because i'm assuming the smallest girl is supposed to be the focal point. a different colouring layer or a texture over the other girls would really help to bring those out. the colouring on this is also a little plain, but i do appreciate those every once in a while!
 
the colouring on all of these are really great! +this one is my favourite! 
 
icons:

 

you said this was one of your weak points, but i think these are really good! the cuts are great, and so is the colouring, but they're a bit plain. simple colouring icons are super great, but they don't really fit with the rest of your gallery because you have such great texture usage in all of your other areas. i would suggest slapping different textures over the icons just to see what it looks like. add text as well. i like that you did some of that in your ace ventura icons, but do more! make some with light texures over it, hardcut little people on them, use stock. experiment a lot and you'll find out what works and what doesn't. also experiment with colouring - having regular skin tone colours is cool, but when you have a cohesive set, nothing sets them apart quite like colouring does. 

 

my favourite icon out of the whole bunch is the 'alrighty then' one (ps i love ace omg i'm having a heart attack)

 

blends:

 

these are suuuper lovely in every aspect! i love the creative comp of them, especially the one of zachary. i know where the focal points are and there are some great elements to them. the colouring is great too, because soft colouring can be quite nice and you really pulled it off. i don't have much to say about this section!

 

+this is my favourite.

 

you said you wanted to focus more on colouring, but i think you have a really good handle on it! there's just a few places where the colour blinds out the details of the graphic or borders too much on becoming an inverted image, and sometimes, those things can be used to your advantage, depending on the graphic, but that's often not the case. experiment more with colouring and mono, but there's a lot of variety with colouring styles, so there's not much else i can say!

 

chapter images are my favourite thing in the whole world, and i think you've got a pretty good grasp on them, too. just think of them as mini blends (... if you like blends lols) they work best for me because of my simple style, but they definitely hold a lot of potential for using lots of different textures. the best advice i can give is to keep it all coherent and equal - because it's basically a square, keeping things sort of symmetrical really helps.

 

as for icons, just like i said in that section - experiment! add lots of textures and colouring and lights and different cuts. smash two pictures together in one, add borders. spending a lot of time on a single icon really pays off, especially when it's in a set and you can see the different aspects of all of them!

 

this is super long and probably not even helpful, but i really love your gallery and style! if you have any questions, shoot 'em over <333

When i started reading your gallery title, I thought it was going in quite a different direction. 

 

+this is really cool. I love the textures you used, seriously. Even if the bit about two inches from the left reminds me of a wheelbarrow. You get me? :P Nah but like those first few banners have such cool and unique texture use, yep. Much jelly. Love +this too. And only about 20% because of Dane. The other 80% is because of your personal flawlessness. And +this one is super cool. Holy crap just scrolled down to your 2011-2013 banners and bloody hell so many banners in your gallery oh my god and such old. You realise it's 2015, right? Get with the program, loser.

 

Love the sig of the dude snorting a pen, by the way. Many creative, such unique. +this is actually the prettiest thing ever, though. And I love the colouring and stuff on +this too. And +these icons are hella sweet. Dem colours tho. Yeah, idk, basically you're pretty awesome I guess. 

 

I'll come around and fix your shed this weekend. xoxo. You supply dinner.
