It's a nice idea you have there. I would try to work on the motorbike parts, gears and rearview mirrors mostly, to match the visual style of the mantis parts (kinda sketchy). Also try to improve the shadow and reflection on the floor, i'll hold on my vote to see if you can work a bit on those extra points.

BTW signature is not that hidden... i seriously suggest to remove it for contest purposes, since precisely viewing the details is an important matter to vote...

Mike says:

wonderful piece of art! Raw illustration as its best. However agree with langstrum, the only weakness is the flatten look of the image, it just makes it look more cartoonish, but that's just our opinion that we think a lil' depth would make it even better, maybe this is just the way you intended...

Even thought the outcome is pretty nice, maybe you could've added some other effects like dried blood over her cheeks, to add some more dramatic look to the picture and to manipulate the source a bit more it's a great idea you have there

actually that was a very objective comment, glows, gradients, and such a detailed fly are not precisely minimalistic, plus, if you just stick to the rule of thirds you'll see that the image it's actually unbalanced

Mike says:

sorry i couldn't comment on this one sooner to achieve minimalism you need to get rid of all unnecessary elements of your artwork, less is more. Use 2 colors in your palette, and only the face with the elements around it that are inside the first circle. There you achieve minimalism...

Great idea! don't love the font choice but still works... try to center the elements vertically, there's a lot of blank space below "the hangover 2" and so lil' above "the wolfpac is back!". Also think it should look better using a solid color rather than a gradient. =)

I'd get rid of the ring, less is more, you have a great concept, the ring doesn't have anything to do with it, and catches up the eye too much...

get rid of the gradients and reflections, those effects totally blew up the minimalism you want to achieve

i think it's a nice concept, maybe the hand is a bit dark, and for the mood you've created maybe the shadow of the hand is also a bit dark good luck

the idea is great, the packaging not so much... you did a great job on 3Ds Max to create the toothbrush, but such a nice work deserves a better packaging... the type is not the best, as well as the color combination, and the size is deeply wrong... you should work on the package because you have a nice idea in here

My secret place
avatar Mike
Mike says:

excelent idea!! i really like it, just two nit picks, everything has great lighting except the sunflowers and seagull, which lighting doesn't match the rest. The other suggestion i have, is that the visual zone that atracts more in an image is the upper right quadrant, and right now it's totally empty, that somehow gives the feeling like something is missing, and that's accented by the fact that the four finger tips and the right side of the tree completes a rectangle, i suggest you to place the seagull in the mid space between the 2 middle finger tips and the top of image

Mike says:

elephant it's not a reference, it's actually a source... but anyway, it's not copyrighted or anything so there shouldn't be any probs... it's a nice texture modeling, and you created a nice mood, but it'd be greater if you "build" the elephant with source plates (like an automaton or something) instead of overlapping both the source texture and the elephant texture... still a very nice chop

Mike says:

for a better composition try to place the avocado a lil more behind the fruits in front of him, right now there's too much tension because only an small part of the fruits are overlapping

Mike says:

nice idea, try to blur the background a lil because it looks more sharp than the eggs, and try to find soe craquelure texture, right now it looks like it was drawed with a marker... nice idea anyway GL

Mike says:

it's very cool! i don't think for a logo though... but it's a very nice idea the thing is that when you shrink it, the letters won't be visible at all... so we'd probably be looking a bitten eye with dust :-P but it's a great graphical idea!!

Mike says:

cool... i'm not thrilled by the oblique position, it's a nice type face and well worked, but for a logo purpose, i'd prefer to see it front also with the 3d effect of course One thing i've just seen, look the bottom of the "P" it looks like it were closer that the other letters... fix that

Mike says:

we all force the eye to read the first "P" because we all know this is for PXL Eyes, but ask other people who doesn't know the site what does they see, i really like the cutout style... use it a lot for my own job, but readability always has to come at first good luck... if you fid out there're readability issues, try to put a blue bar on the left and that's it

Great Image being nit pick, it's easy to follow patterns in flames, because the image of flames in our mind is always random, so if you could randomize the flames that look repetitive it'll be top notch

Mike says:

it's your work, what i'm about to say it's a suggestion but i think it will make your image muuuch better... first get rid of the girl copied on the back, add a wooden background using the nut case, finally add some shadows to make it more eye popping... it'd look kinda scary :-P good luck

the cut is pretty hard.. try to make it a lil bit softer, or maybe add some brown border (with the nut texture) around the slice good luck

add some contrast on the face, and if you can, make the edges sharper... see that the bottom part edges are very sharpy compared with the ones on the face
