[SIZE=1]Hello; and welcome to my art thread. With a link to all of my previous works, some which look like a small pile of poo, and some that look worse. With all the links to them here, I shall also be using this thread to post all new works I do instead of using a brand new thread for each.

I hope you enjoy.

[color=gray][size=1]I like the introduction splashpage thingy. I like bright, it's bright. What I don't like is the text. It stands out way too much and matrix doesn't really fit the image. The banner you made out of it could be a little less high.

Now for the two new graphic thingies. The banner looks nice, though the background is a way different quality than the hand with the sword. This doesn't look right.
The [i]Night Fights[/i] one is just a bit messing with effects and adding grass to it. Nothing much, but I think that it would've looked quite nice without the grass. [/color][/size]

[FONT=Arial]I've had a serious imagination shortage this past while, but I'm here to show you two pieces, one which you will have seen in a Graphics Battle between myself and the wonderful Kitty.

[SIZE=1][COLOR=Purple]I'd have to agree with [I]Boo[/I] on [B]Ichigo Swirl[/B]. The sword and background don't match, although they're both quite cool. Also, not liking the huge white space...although I have no idea what could be added there, and there's a little smudge type deal going on with the guy's thumb. The grass looks very, very cool in [B]Night Fights[/B], but I feel like it doesn't really match the style of the rest of the picture. Cool picture though.

[B]Anethesia Touch[/B] - Did you mean 'anesthesia?' Anyway, you have beautiful colors in this - it reminds me of algae in an aquarium...although that sounds horrible. Nah, think of shows on Discovery Channel where they're showing sunlight glimmering through kelp forests (and cute little sea otters swimming through). I adore the overall image, but then...well, I can accept the text, although I'm not a big fan. I detest the weird block/line things - it just stands out (and not really in a good way) like some sort of grotesque mole or something. But I love everything else.

[B]Music[/B] - Again, these confounded blocks. It's a good (better) effort than in the other piece, but still get in the way. I think if you took away the two vertical ones it would look better. You have a wonderful way with color - it's very neat what you've done here. Although, perhaps the black blob could be a bit smaller...or more faded into, I'm not sure. Still, it's all very good. More to come, I hope?[/COLOR][/SIZE]

[SIZE=1]Interesting, most interesting.

I have to admit the splash graphic is a small bit bright for my tastes, the character and text don't really blend in well either but again that's just my opinion, once you're happy with it that's all that really counts. I'm with the others in regard to [b]Ichigo Swirl[/b] and [b]Fight Nights[/b], the background of Ichigo Swirl just doesn't blend in well with the sword, and Fight Nights motion effect doesn't really gel well with the rest of the image.

I love [B]Anethesia Touch[/B] however, it looks like the sun just kind of peeking through the leaves in a tropical jungle, the colours themselves aren't too bright but still have a vibrancy to them that seems to scream life. I really do like this image, it's very natural and soothing.

[b]Music[/b[ has a kind of retro feel to it, at least that's what sticks out to me. The colours themselves are kind of reminiscent to a disco ball, though the light and dark would seem to do more so with modern clubs with strobe lights and the like. The text seems slightly out of place however, thought that's really the only problem with it. [/SIZE]

[SIZE=1]Why, thank you for the comments, they are muchly appreciated. And I think I shall change my intro image in the next few days, but onto my new submission; now, I wish to thank Retribution for his great words of advice: 'doodle!' It was because of him, that I made this, cheers. XD.

- I named it 'Paschendale' of the song by Iron Maiden, not the battle that took place. ^_^.

And, something different that I wanted to do, hope you like it.

[b]City Life[/b]

Comment away. XP.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=1][b]Paschendale[/b] Looks good, as I've told you before. It's always a good idea just to throw stuff around in PS/PSP and see what you get. I'm fond of everything, except for the lower area where things begin to mellow out from the thrash and chaos of the top. This is would be good, but it happens too suddenly and in some places there's almost no ripple at all (right border). The font is very fitting, good placement of it too.

[b]City Life[/b] Very interesting concept! However, the thick borders and vast amount of gray chokes this up. Try slimming things down to 3 px borders, and see how sleek everything feels then. Good font choice -- very new age.[/SIZE]

[SIZE=1][COLOR=Navy]I'm with Boo on this one. I also like the Splashish image, but the Matrix font doesn't fit atall. The pixel font should be crisper aswell, I think you had the anti-aliagning method at Sharp or something, for pixel fonts it should be at None.

I do like the bg in the banner, it reminds me of Inuyasha for some reason, although I don't care for the show. The sword doesn't fit that look though. Maybe take it out and try an abstract look, or just a diffrent image.

I don't like Nigh fights atall. I guess its the effects you used, and the grass.

Anethesia Touch is good, but the text ruins it. Try something more nature like, because I agree with Gavin about the tropical feel of the image, and a font that lifts that feel even more would be great.

Ah Paintshop..^_^ I like this one. The color kind of gives the idea of the various genres of music in colors, the colors of music. So thats a very cool idea. Once more the font doesn't fit however, and I don't know what the square things next to it are suppose to be. XD

I don't like the last one, it looks rushed. It doesn't blend together atall, and I'm not too fond of the type choice.[/COLOR][/SIZE]
