    Wow, after looking at the stuff in this thread I could hear my self esteem drop.

    Alrighty, I know these look shitty but me and my friend can't decide which to use for a side project me and him are doing. Rate informative for the first one, rate useful for the second.




    The project is nothing serious, it's pretty lighthearted.

    So I have this dark image, there is this dim feel to it, but still some lige you barely can see. And i pasted something else on top of it.

    Is there a filter of some sorts to make it blend with the other one?

    I was bored so I decided to make some propaganda posters for fictional factions in a lore I'm writing.



    I hesitated at first between giving them a dirtier, more used look but I eventually went for pristine state because it was easier that way.

    Any advices ? Should I keep doing those in the same style, try something different ?

    The text is really boring and not that neatly done.

    Try using more than one font and enhance the readability on the orange one.

    They don't really seem readable enough for propaganda posters and I don't like the font in the second one.

    When I think of propaganda posters I would expect much more bold and impacting text. You wouldn't even be able to read these at a distance.

    Check it out, this may help a bit:



    Main inconsistencies I notice:

    ~Hat angle
    ~Hair lighting and (in some places) form.
    ~Eyes angle
    ~Noise direction
    ~Clothing detail and shape.

    In other news, its time for yet another one of lucky's squareshits. Peep it.



    I don't like it so I'll probably remake it sometime.

    You should work on getting where everything is placed in relation to the rest of the picture, look at it as a whole and how everything connects instead of focusing on one little bit at a time. For starters the angle of the face is quite different in your drawing from the photo, and also further out to the right on the head. Here's some giant red lines and what a little rotating to match the angles up did:



    Although now she's looking down with the rotating, but you get the idea. Putting some guiding lines in your initial sketch for angles and such before you start with the detail can be very helpful.

    the text is too thin, but that's already been poked at. If anything I'd ask you make the fist angular. Really angular. The circle form makes it look fat and powerless

    Funny thing about that second style, last time FP saw it, everyone threw a tantrum about it ripping off Cyanide and Happiness and Eddsworld.

    But it doesn't work like someone posts once and I don't like it and I ignore them

    Nor is it like I just won't say anything unless I'm mortally offended by your posts

    Maybe instead of brown/grey/beige combos you should try laying the first layer down in greyscale? I recall you doing it once and it looked good iirc

    The issue with that was that I couldn't recreate the mood of the greyscale image when I went into colour, which was pretty frustrating. Greyscale images tend to feel a lot different than colour.

    I might give it a shot though!

    Does there really have to be a telephone booth? I understand Dr. Who is great and all, but that can be a really great and dark piece if you just remove that.

    the point is to build on the narrative of the Doctor though. From behind and with only a sonic screwdriver (pretty much a stick with a light on it if we look at it aesthetically), it's very hard to tell that he's the Doctor. Combine this with the lack of already established aliens from the show and we end up with the Tardis being the only thing in the image that actually lets us know that it's Doctor Who

    Hey guys, this past month I haven't been able to stick to a painting/drawing for longer than a half hour or so. Looking back I realize that this has affected all my art, as a greater level of finish and detail could be applied.

    I get cool compositions, colour patterns, and design elements that snap into my head, and I feel like i just HAVE to draw them, even if I'm working on something completely different.

    I think that if I leave this unchecked, it will affect my portfolio. (no finished pieces. I know finished work is not a very important part of a portfolio, but it looks bad to have nothing). I am a pretty good artist. I feel like I could be much better, and have much more to show for it, if I can present a design that has been fully thought through and completed.

    what do
