second! smile.gif -will edit later-

hi marney! you've got a gorgeous gallery. I really like the way use textures. Your second banner just flows really well and the textures in the third banner work really well. The second chappie has to be my favorite thing in here, though. I like that it's so bright, but at the same time you've managed to keep it soft. smile.gif if that makes any sense tongue1.gif

anyway, lovely work and looking forward to more!

I really love you. Marney, let's get wed.
Your banners are so beautiful and different
to other ways of doing them I'm just like wub.gif
looking at them. I love how naturalistic you have
your current icons as. Not over done, just simple
and really, really pretty. You have an original and
natural flair for graphics and I'm glad you're on this
site and will continue to grow.

By the way, I came to your gallery via your sig link
on a post in a lazy lounge thread about favourite names
that made me laugh :3 Ash Ketchum was my first choice
of name for my children too smile.gif

Marney, I'm here for your critique. Yes, I know, you can thank me later with assorted chocolates and the like.
But for now, I'm gonna be honesty ll the way happy2.gif

Strengths Colouring, composition and texture use are generally pretty good.

Weaknesses Text seems to be... not neessarily a weakness in technique, per say, but I'd say your confidence in text is pretty low as you dont use it much. I'd say the same goes for stock. My challenge to you: make a banner entirely out of stock and text - no people. AT ALL. Check out this banner by !beccasaurus.

What I'd Get Rid Of These are my suggestions:
+The first banner
+The last two CI's
+And I would link the set with your favourite one. As individuals theyre good, but dont tie in that well as a set
I do realise your galllery is quite empty, especially if you do get rid of these, but qualiy over quantity.

My Favourite Oooh... It's close between the sig and the second banner, but I'm going with the sig

My least Favourite The first banner. I don't think the texture you have framing it really ties in that well confusedslant.gif


cough cough

good luck for promos!
Hope I helped.

p.s. enter your sig for YBW, not the CI

Wowow, thank you so much, that was one of the best compliments i've received in months.
Text and I don't necessarily get along, especially very recently - but i'm working on it!
Again, thank you for taking the time to visit me.

Marney, I would happily set up camp in your gallery and live here forever smile.gif Everything is so beautiful and delicate; your composition and colours are amazing, and I love how much light there is in all of your graphics. I wouldn't worry too much about your text- this and this show exactly how well you can use it.

So even though we've never spoken, just know that I think this gallery is utterly utterly incredible smile.gif

Hi Marney! biggrin.gif I'm here with your crit- sorry for the wake, I've been absorbed in actually making things (jaw-dropping.gif) this week more than in crit tongue1.gif
  • which graphic types you need to work on most: chapter images & sigs- because they're the ones where I'm seeing the most need for technique improvement, which I'll just get on to.
  • which technique (colouring, blending, composition, text, etc.) needs most attention: blending- the way you're currently blending in some instances, I believe by putting people/textures on different blend modes, needs some refining. Textures over faces is generally a bad idea- for example, in +this CI, I can barely see RHW's face, but I love the textures in the background- it would just be better if you erased those that go over her face. Similarly in +this, and +this. Having the background visible through faces is almost never aesthetically pleasing, tbh.
  • your strongest piece & why: +this - there are a few texture/face issues, but in general I love the colouring and it has a nicely clear focal point- I would like to see some text though! biggrin.gif
  • any pieces which are holding you back & why:
    +one, +two - for the reasons stated above with blending.
    +this - for the blending above, and also for the very mess composition- blending aside, there's no focal point in this, and there's text placed pretty awkwardly over the girl's face. Also, the blending has interfered with the colouring a bit, making areas that should be dark light.
In the main, I think you just have to work for consistency- your banners are beautiful, really, but the blending in other things will really hold you back- as a general rule, save changing the blend mode for textures, and when you're using stock or people keep at full opacity and 'normal', and you'll rule out a lot of your current problems smile.gif You've got a great start so far, I hope some of what I've said is helpful to you! biggrin.gif
