Guest apsara.

yay, first!!

 

Hey there Niki and welcome (back) to TDA! :)

 

i can see that you have some great skills going on here! Your icons are my favourite! the comp on them is FANTASTIC! actually, your comp in general is very dynamic and different on almost every graphic! i also think you work very well with monochrome, because all the monochrome graphics on here are really great- especially that sig!

 

right now, all I'd say is to experiment more with colouring, and give your graphics more contrast, because that adds a lot of depth and works wonders, really!

 

can't wait to see more graphics from you!

 

love,

Rohini :)

the queen rohini has stopped by my gallery :hide:

 

thank you very much!! it's nice to be back.

 

i'm surprised that you like my icons!! i had no idea what in the world i was doing whilst making them. they've always been my weak spot, so i'm glad my comp has gotten better on them! but i'll be sure to experiment more, and i'll make sure to try out higher contrast!!

 

thank you for your kind comment!! it means a lot :)

Hey Niki :) Here for your crit! (also just realized that you're the same person that I'm filling that wallpaper request for!) Really sorry that I'm about a day and a half late!

 

So right now I think that you may need more graphics in here to fill it out a bit more to be considered senior - not that you're not good enough yet, but it's hard to gauge your graphic making ability without seeing what you can do with chapter images and blends!

 

Anyway, I think you've got a very solid grasp on graphic making already. If that header is yours (at least I'm pretty sure it is) then it's def gorgeous!! I love the monochrome and the little pop of color with the cross. The lights and darks in the header also give it a ton of depth, just a beautiful header all around. You say comp is one of your weaknesses but I don't think it is - so far your comp skills are very good. Your Silky Blue banner has great comp, love the placement of the people and the base is pretty seamless as well. I'd maybe place the next a little bit closer to the middle, or maybe add a quote somewhere there, but otherwise it's great. The only graphic I'm not so sure about comp-wise is the magnolia banner. I think the guy behind the text is just a bit too small, and hard to make out, especially since the text is so big it's quite overpowering. In this case, the focal point is a bit muddled, I'm not sure if the main focus is supposed to be the guy or "Magnolia". I'd suggest trying some new and creative things with your comp - so far it's good but I think going out of the box a bit more would really take your graphics to the next level.

 

I don't think text is a weakness of yours, but I think it's a bit hit and miss sometimes. Like what I mentioned above with the "Magnolia" text, the text on the Kansas banner is maybe a bit too big, and sort of fights with the two guys as the focal point of the banner. I'd make it smaller and move it closer to Dean. For your icons, I think the text is absolutely spot on. Love how it sort of ties all the icons together, and I really enjoy the irregularity of the lines, I think it makes it look much more interesting. Text on the Chris Evans album cover is also perfect. Love the back cover especially, it's beautifully balanced and very minimalist but very pleasing to the eye. Great work on that graphic, one of my favourites in here. I also like that you did something more creative with the text on both your signatures, but for the the "Chang" is a bit hard to make out because it's black. In short, I'd watch out for some readability issues when it comes to your text. Also, because all three of your banners use very similar scripty fonts, it looks a bit samey? To break up that samey-ness it'd be great to make more banners with very different text so that your gallery comes across as more varied.

 

In terms of coloring, I think your coloring is generally really good (coloring on Puny God header and Chris Evans album cover are perfect and stunning) but on some of your other graphics it looks a bit undercolored and unfinished. Cho Chang sig to me looks a bit flat and undercontrasted, and the skin tones of the people on the Silky Blue banner look just a tad too red to me, but in general I think you've got a good understanding of coloring :) I'd suggest watching out for contrast and light/dark, the level of light/dark on your header is great!

 

Anyway, in conclusion, def make more! I think it's important for the admins to see that as a senior you're able to tackle all kinds of graphic types, so even if the size of blends really intimidate you, just go for it and see what turns out. Hope I helped, and please PM me if you have any questions!
