Default Re: [War X] Graphics

I have no complaints about the themes, really. This is supposed to be a challenge and competition. Each week there is a theme where several people must prove themselves at being the best at it. Experienced artists winning is kind of the point. I like this week's theme because I know many graphics artists have never done anything larger than the size of a signature, which is really a shame, because that's where true skill is shown. It takes way more skill and hard work to fill a 700x700 canvas than a 100x400 one.

Maybe I have a thing or two to say about the judging, mainly how it's focusing way too hard on things like lighting, flow, etc. and putting numbers with them instead of the overall appearance, but I won't go into detail about that.

This shows that picking themes like sprites is THE BETTER way to go because you can get multiple styles and EVERYONE has a chance.
This can happen with every style, no matter if it's vector or sprite or whatever. Vector doesn't have one particular way of looking, same with sprite. If you really wanted an 'unbiased' set of themes, you'd have to do them like 'make a freestyle tag' 'make a freestyle icon' 'make a freestyle wallpaper' 'make a freestyle text'- but even then people are going to specialise in certain areas. I personally think that restricting it to smudge or sprite would be even worse. Some people don't know how the feck to smudge whatsoever, whereas 'graffiti' is simple- make your style look like graffiti.
The point of these themes are to try to work outside your comfort zone. Just because you feel you can't do something it doesn't mean the themes are crap, mate. :P

I guess I understand your points. Like I said, it was just an opinion. d: Anyway, here's my entry.

Entry: Right here.
I basically did a very long [layer-wise] coloring to make this. I can show you the original picture if you'd like.

The original image was close to black and white, and it was ugly. And, yeah, laughter is the best medicine, and I probably can't go a day without laughing.

So here are the results for week 4..

Shozuka
Vile


Theme: 10

Creativity: 10

Colour: 7, colours are rather cold, black and white come out as a bit monotone, you probably could have worked a bit with the pink shape on her cheek and the yellowish colour on her libs, to make her face stick out a but more..

Focal: 8 there is a focal there, but the montone colours kinda draw the attention away from it and makes it blend into the rest of the icon a bit..

Light Source: 10

Depth: 10 wow, I really like the depth, great job.. :)

Composition: 10

Overall: 8.. Like I said, the colour needs a tiny bit of an adjustment, but overall fantastic job.. :)

73/80


Anastasia-R
Ville


Theme: 10

Creativity: 10

Colour: 10 Also the colours look amazing, and seeing the original images was almost black and white you did an awesome job on the colouring.. ;)

Focal: 10
.
Light 10 It's bit on the weaker side, but it's there and its placement looks really good

Depth: 10

Composition: 10

Overall: 10

80/80



Foxamivalth
The Cullen


Theme: 10

Creativity: 9

Colour: 7 Could have worked a bit more on the colours, like make all that red pop a bit more, it's a bit to dark..

Focal: 9

Light: 8 Could have used a little bit more in this banner..

Depth: 9 the depth is there, it's looks good, but what throws me off a bit is how much you've blurred the hand which is obviously suppose to be stick out, but I see why you would blur it since it brings a lot more attention towards the focal blurring it.. But yeah, the depth is there and all in all it looks good

Composition: 10

Overall: 8
70/80


JokesterJesse
Ville


Theme: 10

Creativity: 10

Colour: 9 I really do like the colour, but it's just on the verge off being monotone.. But still good job on the colours, blue does go with oranges http://www.artyfactory.com/color_the...lour_wheel.gif .. ;)

Focal: 9 Could have worked a bit more on the focal

Light Source: 8 The light source is not that strong

Depth: 8, same as for Focal.. Could have blurred Beyoncé a bit then erased around the focal, that way you would have added clear depth and scored a 10 on focal.. ;)

Composition: 10 the placement looks good all in all.

Overall: 8
72/80

Iso
Octopus Babies


Theme: 10

Creativity: 10

Colour: 10

Focal: 10

Light Source: 10

Depth: 10

Composition: 10

Overall: 10 WOW! The colours are amazing! Light source, depth, focal you nailed it! I love your submission, it looks incredible! ;D



So Iso and Anastasia-R got first place, so 2 points for each, Shozuka got 2nd place and gets 1 point. So the scores have been altered a bit since we had a tie for 1st place. :)


So Vile gets 3 points and Octopus Babies get 2 points. Congrats guys. ;)




Also next weeks theme is Typography, so yeah.. :)

And you had light source


So Lusy gets 3 points for the Armada, and Hoshika gets 2 points for the Cullen..


So if you guys want some comments and scores just say so and I'll edit it in tonight when I'm not as busy. :)


Anyway, this was the last War theme, so it's safe to say that the graphics war is over, so good job everyone. :)
