New piece of art for the viewing
    #3572443 - 01/02/05 08:17 PM (12 years, 18 days ago)

Made this in photoshop with pictures of paintings i did, and photos found on the web. Tell me what you think, and any artists out there give me some advice/critique.

What about it causes the annoyance. I'd like specifics if anyone has any, i'm trying to improve. Also, I really didn't spend much time on it, and its not something i really care about, just curious.

I agree with Sheik, the colors are a little unnerving, darker hues might give it a more sedate feel. But maybe that wasn't your original intention? Anyway, otherwise it is at least interesting.

When you altered the colors, you didn't settle with a 'blendable' spectrum and you got a sort of banding, or banding-like (not exactly banding, but the same effect) result of your colors.

Don't take this wrong, but I can't really see talent in this piece. Then again, this is the only piece of yours I have seen. If I see more of your style, I might get a better feel of your degree of talent.

Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

looks really trippy and intense to me, maybe a little sloppy, but I like it. I think you could be on to something if you did a series of similar things. The background is cool. It reminds me of some of Merzbow's visual art.

honestly it ain't too bad. though i didn't like the teeth and the 3 eyes on the middle owl. i think it would have looked a lot better to just have the 3 basic owls in the center...with nothing extra, added to them ( some color manipulation would look chill). though this piece does have potential. the background also needs a little bit of work. but please don't think i'm dissing your piece, i do like it, it just needs a few modifications. and please don't let our advise discourage you from posting more, i'm anxious to check out some of your other pieces. post em, if ya got em :smile:

peace and love :stoned:

I like it. It would be cool to look at on a trip. It it off balance though. The moon? It pulls your eye away from the main subject, it's too strongly contrasted from the rest. There isn't any balance with the opposite corner. Maybe a tree or something would help there. You need peoples eyes to be carried all across the pic but focus on the subject.

Thanks for all the comments, and I don't mind anyone ripping it to shreds, this is probably the most constructive cricism i've been able to get on anything. Also keep in mind, that this was just something I whipped up in photoshop in an hour or less, using some photos from the web, and some pics from my REAL art (paintings) that can be found at the same site,

https://webspace.utexas.edu/mrs65/

feel free to comment on any of those as well. I did post a link to those a while back, but didn't get as much feedback as this thread.
