Sorry bro, but a clusterfuck of random images barfed onto a grand theft auto cover isn't really appealing by most peoples standards... I gotta ask, are you really a professional graphic designer?


nope, no sig.

Its A Collage my friend please don't be rude

for a collage from a "Graphic Designer" its terrible. You have no composition, no flow, no readability, no spacing and no consistency. . Your text is horrible and unreadable. your pacing is at most following this large "C" shape, which does not lead the eye around that much.
you have random tidbits just stuck on in places in attempts to look good with out taking in any consideration for blending or appeal.
I'm not being rude, well maybe a little, but I do hope that if you are a pro, or at least a student or an aspiring graphic designer, that you place more effort in your actual work than this mess you have actually posted up here.

Now in attempts to not be "Rude" you should post up something much more original, not just a bunch of images created by other people pushed together. I'd gladly like to see even something of just basic shapes with good composition and layout. Try and justify your statement of being a "Graphic Designer" by proving it.
So lets see what you got.

This one is a bit better, at least it has composition and some balance.
Did you have a base reference to work off of? if so, can you link it?

this one on the other hand needs balance. its real heavy on the left side. you got good lead on the player since he is looking to the right. Take that burst of light and push it to the other side or perhaps the lower right corner. Since you have Manningg so washed out with light, the light source won't matter as much.
The smoke comming from the body looks like it coulx balance it too, but you'd need to push it a bit harder on the right.

See these are much better than that first one. You really should have lead off with one of these instead of that.
Speaking of light source the one on manning has a better one coming from the right anyway.

To be honest, and this is my personal opinion, I'm not terribly impressed with it. It looks rather mainstream and it just doesn't feel like there's any emotion in it. It's like you're trying to imitate other, more successful graphic designers without really understanding what makes their works so great in the first place, instead settling for cheap imitations.

Your collage is, as Kinsei said in rather blunt terms, a clusterfuck of pictures, mostly unedited, seemingly put in a random fashion on the edges of the canvas. It feels very cluttered. You made a spelling mistake in the wording, which is more lulzy than anything else. And well, there just doesn't seem to be a focus, no life... no dynamism, if that makes any sense. It's like you just settled for this plain collage. If your aim is to be one of the best designers out there, then you have to aim to impress. You have to leave a part of yourself in every piece you make. Doesn't matter if it's schoolwork or not, when you make a portfolio, most of the work you'll put in there WILL BE -you guessed it- work you did at school. I know it sounds like a lot of mumbo jumbo, but it's only because I don't know how else to say it. There's nothing defining in this piece, and as Kinsei mentioned, there's no "flow" The eye is kind of just... lost. Maybe have your favorite things in that collage be predominant? Have them really stick out, and then just have the rest flow outwards. If that makes any sense. I just feel you really settled for the bare minimum of whatever this assignment asked of you.

The filtered girl is also nothing new. I feel like I've seen that style of picture a million times already, and most of the time executed in a more appealing fashion. I like the colors, not crazy about the little white snake things coming out from the top right corner. Feels like they were added in a rushed fashion to fill the otherwise empty right side of the image.

The Peyton render... I mean, call me crazy, I always figured renders need to have a message to them, a theme if you will. And I'm not really sure what you're trying to say here, other than "This is Peyton." What's the big exploding white blotch in the top left supposed to be...? A spotlight? And those things on the right...? The ones caught in the red/blue gradient? Barfing pacmen? Jellyfish? If you take Peyton out of the picture, it just looks like a bunch of random filters. There's abolutely nothing in the background that I, as a common mortal, can relate to football.

I dunno. A professional artist I may not be, but I still feel you should put a bit more effort in what you do. These seem very generic and mainstream. Don't be afraid to try new things, to send a message with your works, to show your stuff. Don't settle for the norm, go beyond it. That's what everyone here is really trying to say, each in their own way.

even so, you should have really used better skills and judgment in that piece.. Perhaps you should redo it. I'm sure you could make it better.

But Here Is Some Sketches Aswell

It seems that your true strength is at photo manipulation . But thats alright everything takes time and practice.
For your sketching, be sure to remember how the body holds together and how it looks when sketching and drawing. Try and be mindful of proportions when drawing, even if it is stylized.
You already have sense of composition and balance, be sure to use those skills when drawing as well as your manipulations.
