What were you trying to achieve with this? I like what you did but it's difficult to give you some solid critique without knowing exactly your intentions on this experiment.

The problem with that is that it shouldn't be "power points" to those who can decipher it, it should have readability regardless. If you want to have your text masking smaller text, I'd recommend getting a heavier weight typeface. Also, warping the type like that will usually mess up most of the qualities that the designer of said typeface intended to be present in their design, so unless you're trying to do something with perspective, or as one of my instructors has told me, a Burger King ad, try to keep the text warping to a minimum. Not to mention, the readability of "techno voodoo" is also a bit challenging.
As for the illustration sitting above the text, the face seems a bit flat, especially on the right, and the hair seems a bit careless. I like what you've got going on with the contrast between the dark face and the bright blue lines, but the face is too dark to see against the dark background. Also, is the dark background a gradient? Stop that.
Glad you came along spags, I certainly have to agree with you, I was looking at that one image and I thought how hard it was to read but I was unsure about it, it seemed fine and I just assumed I was being over-critical about my work, I'm glad I could get a second opinion because you've confirmed my concerns and given me others I overlooked, I certainly need to work on it which will be an afternoon and a half but I think I can breathe some atmosphere into it, if not something much better than the car crash we see here, as always I appreciate the critique.
anyway, came by to drop off a doodle of sorts, nothing relevant, just archiving drawings for the hell of it.

well that game sucked gameplay wise, good story though, ill give it that. and the side quests had pretty good voice acting so that was a bit of an incentive for me to do them
You know how Warner bros. turned green arrow into Arrow? lets apply that to batman

i noticed that, but i was really more concerned with how cool the robot arm looked, my priorities are fucked.
You know Maher, I've been watching your thread for a while now and I've got to say that I think you are much more capable than what is presented. In every post I see a part or section that looks really good and seems like you spent a lot of time on; unfortunately it is brought down by the rest which is either too big, too small, sketchy, or just poorly laid out. I think if you just put abit more time in to any single piece and a bit more planning you're work will really start to stand out.
Right now the most notable thing you could work on is not only anatomy but the poses you put your characters in are very awkward and stiff. You should also keep in mind the size and shape of the arms which seem to vary a lot In your drawings.
There's a lot more to be said that may help you, but I'm doing this from my phone so, yeah. Put a bit more work Into your stuff.
