Its REALLY sketchy.
4/10


Looking for constructive criticism, especially if anyone has any ideas for the person/tree.
Edges are cut because i used the polygono lasso tool; I don't have illustrator at home

8/10. I'm actually intrigued by this one. The simplistic style of it is a little much for me though. To fix this I would recommend Saturating the colors a bit more, or up the Contrast. It will make it stand out more on the white background. The letters are great with the fade in them, but like i said before, The only Critique i can give you is to mess around with Saturation and/or Contrast so that the design stands out from the background.

Comments and Criticism appreciated. I am to lazy to render, so it will blend with an background, it at the moment so you all are stuck with an ugly white background. Lol sorry guys.

Lol its not a cityscpe brush. It is skyline view of Houston i got off google in which i Cutout, black in whited, Sharpened, Satined, Despeckled, Added several splatter brushes from brusheezy and put a pulse font on it. Next time you decide to dog on someones artwork, either look back at previous work they have done and decide for yourselves if they take novice shortcuts, which there is around 10 in this thread, or continue to keep your mouth shut.... Oh and btw Citscape brushes are for fags who cant do it themselves. Show me the cityscape brush used in this piece and i will salute you considering the fact that there is none that match.

Back to topic. I dont quite understand what this piece is supposed to be, but most shadows do not go straight down unless the light source is straight up. But even if that was the case the Shadow should still spread and fade out. Also i would suggest working on your color coordination. Having only two colors in graphic piece like yours does not usually work unless those colors happen to be black and white. The colors used here are complete opposites and to be used together should have some set of colors to draw them together. The colors need to blend together and be in harmony. Such as changing the background to a dark orange or gradient it from light to dark. Although opposites may seem good in your head, the turnout is usually undesirable. Considering the fact that it was when you first got photoshop i give your props for trying new things. Good luck on your next piece... 6/10

Uhh.. brushes save time. Why would you do it yourself if there was a brush already done? The fact that you did it yourself doesn't really make you a better designer.. It just means that you don't take the most efficient path to a final outcome. Especially the fact that the process you described doesn't result in a vector, which means you still can't get it printed.

The actual physical use of photoshop means nothing in design. If you've got the eye, that's all that matters. Learning the software just takes time. Knowing what looks good takes skill. And judging by your work, you may have the beginnings of a good design eye, but still need some work.

by that same token, i would say that your design is ALRIGHT at best. i dont have work to post up here, but i check this thread often. i am a designer trying to teach myself photoshop etc.

i would say the brass knuckles dont match the font at all and the blue splatter looks out of place

I give credit where credit is due, your eye is probably much more superior to mine based off you work, and yes i know. I stated that it isnt a render yet so its stuck with the white background... What has been posted, as shown by the steps didn't no take long at all and i dint not feel like spending the time to render it. But i do get aggravated when kids decide to go after someone and state something as if it is under them and too easy, when they post work in which my little brother could make. I know my limits at the moment, and i know when i've been beat but don't flame me when you have no idea what your talking about. Get what i'm saying bro? Your design is alright on a scale of designers but since it surpasses most that is in this thread, I give you a 8/10.

I wasn't flaming.. was there a negative tone to that post? I'm just trying to offer you some insight.

I agree. You have to be able to accept criticism too.

Bro when i'm talking about the flaming i was talking about the post before yours. Sorry for the confusion. I appreciate your insight and will take it into account.

Very simple, but gets the point across. Looks like a government "Go Green" ad. Another 8/10

You're a jackass. The last 2 he posted aren't intended to be logos. Even as such, they're better as logos than the one you just posted.

Honestly that sucks balls compared to his, yours would be illegible if made smaller, is too detailed and would just look weird on anything, has cut offs. I know you tried really hard to throw together that bull**** excuse for an insult, congratulations on wasting your time. There was nothing wrong with his that would make it unusable for a logo. Was it a little cliche? Yes, but you still have no right to tell his it sucks and to use yours instead. This is a thread to critique others work, not bash the **** out of them. I suggest you consider no posting in this thread for a while because you just made yourself look like an ***.

To keep this on topic:

Catalog page for plant culture cloning company (dont ask), its a work in progress and they're theme is cool greens and blues
