Re: Everybody loves my work....

I don't think you can get a true critique without the ability to see high res versions of your work.

At low res, however, your work is awesome!

Re: Everybody loves my work....

Erm, maybe I can jus give some humble suggestions

For the starwars piece, i would say that the sky and the planet background could be improved? The way the planet fades and merges with the sky makes it look a bit fake.

Still.. cool works.. (sorry, i cant help it)

Good, cause quite personally, i think your work is shit. You'll never make it in this industry and you might as well go back to selling popcorn at the movie theater.

and what's with that first girl in portfolio2? What are you some kind of corpse retoucher? Cause she looks like a dead body.

Dude, do us all a favor and just give up!

Thanks for the replies so far. I have gotten remarks from the girl in port 2, so maybe I should take it out completely and for the star wars, I wasn't to sure to fade it more from the bottom up or top down, or to darken it. It is tricky since I could only get lo-res for a large hi-res file.

Re: Everybody loves my work....

I first came across your work at the beginning of April on Guest Blog Wednesday, I have to say you caused me a few headaches trying to work out the Fog section on your S.W.A.T. piece.

You have some fantastic pieces of work, not all to my liking but they do look great - Please keep up the good work, although it makes the things that I do look like a two year olds attempt

Re: Everybody loves my work....

Nice work,But the first portfolio is far better than the second,to me anyway
Alot of the color just doesnt seem right in the second portfolio
there is other problems also some seem bad cut and pastes
Probably going over them and fixing/or not maybe a good idea
the problem giving a critique is we do not know what you were/are trying to achieve with these images
Just my opinion

Re: Everybody loves my work....

well, the first port is mostly the complex compositing/illustrations while port 2 is all for print...some are catalog, some pharmaceutical, and some commercial advertising. i tried to give a range of diverse pieces, not all heavily retouched comps. which ones did you think were bad cut and pastes zganie?

thanx
