Dec. 3rd, 2011-- UPDATED CHALLENGES!


Love creating artwork but you can't find that extra-little push you need to get going? Looking for a community of artists to share your progress with? Want to press your foundations and aesthetic choices to the max?

Look no further! Open Crits is now a WEEKLY DESIGN CHALLENGE that will push you to get back to your foundations to enforce well-rounded drawings. All artists are welcomed, though for now the assignments will be geared more toward animation-themed work.

  1. Welcome to the blog, Corissa! Glad to see you're posting with fervor. =)

    First things first-- I'm going to go out and guess this advertisement is meant to act similarly as a Theme-park advertisement, or some sort of entertainment advertisement might. In terms of the several different versions, I think it's better to come up with wildly different versions for designs (coming at it from a standpoint like being a person who hired you.)

    Otherwise, I would suggest limiting the amount of text. Right now it feels a little overloaded-- and your character seems cramped and uncomfortable on the page with all that text. Graphic design using text is a reaaaaally difficult thing to master, in terms of figuring out what is pleasing. The best thing to do, is figure out the bare minimum of text-information you need, and thumbnail out ways to layout the page with an image.

    Or, if you're going for more newspaper-type advertisements, its better to block text into a certain area, and let the character act as a focal point, guiding your eye to the text. =)

    Glad to have ya on board!
