This is a P.S.A I had to make for my english class. We had to make a service announcement about something we believe is a problem with our choice of industry. I want to make video games, so I chose the fact that most game armor, while nice to look at, sucks in battle. This is my first real time coloring in Adobe Illustrator, and Photoshop, so please tell me what you think, and If I get my message across clearly. Thank you!



Rated 4.5 / 5 stars

I guess the damage to the armor could be more pronounced, the bullet holes across the chest look too perfect and small at distance.
Somehow, I picture that warning label on the top side of a huge, adult sized, clear blister pack (like for action figures). But realistically, your approach works better, though maybe the composition could be better, like a text blow up instead of another frame? Lotta different ways to do it, no right or wrong answers...

Thank you! This was my second real time using my tablet, and photoshop to make a project, and like you commented on my first submission I went far beyond my comfort zone with this one. In response directly to the critiques, I spent over 16 hours, making 28 layers to make this one poster, aaaaaannnnddddd at the last minute before the project was due I realized I had not made ANY damage to the armor, hence the quick little laser holes. You read my intent perfectly though, I designed the "gag" to be like this guy had walked into a game store and bought a life-size blister-pack of armor to put on, and this is how he ended up. (Actually used my McFarlane action figure of Jorge from Halo Reach as a Loose reference!) Lastly, I have ALWAYS struggled with composition, and the rule of three. My current Art teacher is beating me with a rolled up paper to try and improve my compositional awareness, haha! Thank you again for the great critique!
