Thanks for creating us a controversial piece. Well, I do like this artwork, although it is not that perfect. So here's my opinions:
1. Right most bottom edge; it looks weird.
2. The flow of aqua; I do think you need to make it more tranparent and more bubbles.
3. The whole thing; It can't really make me feel like: "Omg, it can drench me.". Maybe you need to add some vapor and dampness effect on the screen. I mean, on the screen.. Where the angle that we look in.
4. 2D Art. This is funny I would like to say that some portions are GREAT and some are lousy.
So that's all what I can say. Well, I am not great artist :\ I am just trying to express my feeling on the piece, hope you will appreciate it.
And btw (To some people), this is not a place for you to bash. Please also understand that iteration of style(s) does not decrease the elegance of particular artwork. Blatantly, you are putting yourself in a subjective perspective and this is a fatal mistake in judging.
it didnt' show on my fucknig devwatch! grr.... you know what I do excellent piece, I like it for what it is, and the artisitc nature of it is done quite well. Overdone or not, you are still the master when it comes to this.
just simply awesome my friend I am so in love with this piece. You've done such a great job with both the 3d and 2d elements and everything is so well balanced. I love the flow the image has to it. The typography is some of the best I have seen on your works. And not to mention the colours look awesome. Great layout and design
interesting, finally I see some helpful words here, thanks so much, for those who give me precious advice. This is a good sign, where some people finally start to think about their own way of commenting artworks.
One more thing, sice when is DA a place to bash peoples art, all the people insulting him saying how "poorly" he has done this, why don't you give some comments on how he could improve it. (some people just won't grow up)
this is a really well done abstract, contrary to what everyone is saying about the typo, i think you have done a good job with it. The typo is nothin absolutely different, but where you placed it in the piece makes it look so much better, It doesn't take away from the focus, yet it gives the person who is seeing this something else to "digest"
It is lacking major composition, placement of just about everything totally disrupts the flow of the "starburst type look you went for". The typeface you chose isn't working in this as well..your going for a modern futureistic look and using an older elegant type face..don't make much sense to me. It pretty much looks like you put in some work on defining the focal point than ran out of ideas and decided to add some random 2'd and words that in no way releate to the piece..just about everything looks out of place. If your going to attempt to add 2d and typography please learn about some fundementals before hand..because this just looks like another half assed attempt that has been labeled "3d abstract".
You don't need to go running back to my deviantart page and run your mouth because I am no longer here, goodday.
Actually, I think it's an all around excellent piece. I actually like what you did with the typo, mainly because you didn't do what most people do, which is blend it in with the piece so you can hardly see it. I like how you put the text in areas of low contrast, which made it stand out a lot more, and makes people pay more attention to it. Only thing is I can't read it
And from the looks of this, I could only see where two filters could or would have been used, and that's IF he used filters. The rest can easily be done by hand, like I often do myself. *niteangel also probably used some layering effects, like some color dodges etc... and I see absolutely no problem in using those.
The only thing I slightly agree with, is ~preppy's comment about the focal point, it'd be neato if you could maybe change it around from time to time, make people actually look at the entire artwork instead of "some" that obviously just paid attention to the center.
Awesome work here...i just love your abstract works. This has great..hmm it feels cold and i think that it's cool thing.
Render is interesting and original. This has great lightning and focal point. This makes me feel good.
I disagree with the way people are approaching you with the problems because they do it in a rude fashion.
Alright well I really like the sharpness on this, its really better then seeing blurry images all the time. Now for the crits, I think the 2d was pretty good, but in some spots it doesn't work to well. But it's still better then most peoples and atleast has thought. I think the focal point you put here could of been put in a more interesting spot rather than in the dead middle.
I honestly dont see how this is like Jen's work anyways. He doesn't do stuff like this LOL. Its a far more complex style. This is more simplistic yet pleasing to the eyes
Not to be rude but the air brushing in this image i awfull. Air brushing isn't a lil bunch of dots. Its a very effective tool. How many filters did you use on this image? Every single one of them? I have seen tons of images that look exactly like it. You might wanna go back in the lab and work on ur mediocre brushing.
