Hi Hannah, I'm here to give you a critique. First of all, I just want to let you know that I'm not used to seriously critquing higher-ranked artists so know that I'm being very nitpicky. So don't feel like I'm being harsh or anything because those are not my intentions. Icons:
I like the soft colouring but the cuts are boring. Maybe make another set that focuses more on cutting and textures?Banners: ++:
This banner is not the best. First off, the guy is too blue and it doesn't flow right with the girl. Also, the text feels detached, maybe because they're both so small. But I do like the composition, it's just the text and colouring that doesn't work.++:
I really like this. Just add some contrast and darken up the white sections on the sides of her head.++:
Love this! The colouring and the images you used are great. I'm just not a fan of the font choice.++:
Good job on this one. Just lower the red in the left side and make the 'oves' part of Moves a little bit lighter.++:
I think this one is my favourite. I like the colouring and the overall composition. Once again though, the text isn't the best. I see what you were trying to do with putting the F in the middle of the two words. But with the f in fruit and there being no f in forbidden is weird. Maybe mirror the 'orbidden' part and take out the 'f' in fruit? Or just add an f in front of the first word. Sigs:
-- The first one is so pretty. I really like everything about it!
-- 'In My Head' has beautiful colouring. Just the black and white patch on the right is awkward.
-- 'Simon is great, too. Just maybe make the background a little lighter.
-- Last one is good. The halo around the flowers to the left could be darkened a little.Blends:
-- The first blend is brilliant. I really love the blue colouring. The big R is in a awkward place just below her eye. Maybe erase that part? Also the smaller text is not the best, maybe because it's in all caps?Overall:
Your sigs are my favourite of your work. Just be careful because you seem to use the same placement of people in all of them. Also, you seem to use Trajan (I think, sorry I'm not good with identifying fonts o.O) alot so trying experimenting. The text on your sigs are great but the ones in your banners could use work. Your colouring seems great overall, just that first banner is a little iffy. I really like your gallery, you are definitely talented. I'd just say to work harder on your text.
*takes serious hat off*
Oh, that was hard to do. I really DO love your gallery, I wish I had your colouring skills.
Keep up the amazing work, hun!
