hello, love! i'm here with your crittt. (hopefully i'll actually be able to help lol :"D) before i get into it, i just wanted to say that i'm so in love with your graphics and your style. your creativity continues to astound me every time i see your name in the pylc or challenges or like - anything. so. yes. fangirl moment over
that first header. unf. that's all i have to say about that
i love the variety of these. none of them are the same, which i really love seeing. the first is especially lovely, although it's a bit hard to read the text. the same goes for the second chapter image - the small text is lovely, but because of the transparency of the large text, it's hard to tell which line belongs to which word when it's all overlapping. i don't think it's much to worry about, because i know how amazing your text always is :"D your colouring is very lovely on all of these, too! however, i'm finding +this just a little plain. the text seems a little too far to the right, as well, but i love the colouring and lighting. the rest of them are amazing, too, but one thing i'd like to see is chapter images with more than one person in them! it's often really lovely to have simple comp with one person, but i suggest mixing it up a bit! otherwise, they're all really lovely!
+this is my favouriiiite <3
of course, these are absolutely stunning! i love the apparent simplicity of your work, although i definitely know there is nothing simple about what you do. i'd just watch out for the placement of textures over your people, like in +this - the birds are bordering on being too far in on the girl's face. the main text is also almost easy to miss; although the transparency is a really nice effect, watch for what is underneath it. over the girl's shoulder, the lines get lost a bit. i really love all of your banners, especially the animation one! something i'd like to see in your banners is different comp. like your chapter images, most of them are one-person graphics, and that person is usually in the middle with the main text across them and a quote to the side. while those are really lovely and you do a great job of the bases, try something different! also watch out not to make your small text too small. on a few of your banners, the text is bordering on being too hard to see, and that also might be because they're oversharpened.
my favourite is a tie between +this (guuuus <3) and +this!
you said this was an area you struggle with, but i think they're all really lovely! i very much love the variety and creativity in this section. just watch out for overfiltering, like in +this - the girl is too smooth and she doesn't quite look realistic. +this looks sort of... gritty, if you know what i mean? the boy looks a little low quality and oversharpened, along with the text. the white texture you used doesn't quite flow with the rest of the graphic and contributes to the gritty and oversharpened look of the graphic, but that might just be a personal opinion. the comp on +this is a bit off. the girl is too far left and there isn't much of a focal point because the text takes up so much of the graphic. however, i really like the comp on the rest of them! just make sure the text isn't too small and oversharpened on these, as well.
+this is my favourite!
yessss manips. i'm pretty sure that first one is like... a pw thing BUT I HAVE NO IDEA WHO YOU ARE ON THERE??? IF YOU ARE ON THERE???? IDK TELL ME. loool anyway. i love it! +this is also lovely, although the text is too filtered and hard to read. adding those filters to it is really lovely and you usually pull it off so well, but make sure you don't overdo it! i love the creativity of +this, your manips are ridiculously amazing and like. no. i'm done with this.
my favourite is +this.
the softness and colouring of +this is super lovely! and +this is just like... wow. i love it. everything you make is so creative. lsdkfjskdfjdjf.
you said a weak point for you is colouring, but i really love your colouring! it's all very soft and lovely, and there's a lot of variety, too. i'd like to see you use warm colours, though! most of your graphics have very cool and dark tones, so try making a few graphics that are warm and light. also try making graphics with more than one or two people on them! most of your chapter images, banners, and some of your signatures only feature one person, and although those are super lovely, try being more creative with your comp when it comes to people! you only have a few instances of overfiltering, so it's not too much of a problem, and your signatures are lovely!
thank you for letting me try to pick this apart - everything is super lovely and i have so much respect for you as an artist ;3 <3 any questions, just shoot me a PM!
