Afrika Bambaataa; the Amen Ra of Universal HipHop Culture;

My entry to the NG HipHop Art Competition. The theme was 80s hiphop; so I decided to make a portrait of Afrika; being one of the founding fathers of hiphop.

nice and purple

I really like the msg you had it is and can be true in many ways so really awsome effort in presenting a great msg, ok now onto the art piece, now you have a solid color in purple which i think is such an awsome color to work with, so awsome job, now while i do like purple and it looks good here it would have been nice with another color like a blueish and have them work together somehow, i think this could also use some "FRAMES / BORDERS" maybe if you kept this purple them go with a deep dark purple for the frame and or borders around the edges, makes it feel more like a poster type of thing, just an idea though, aslo you should think about making the canvas larger so you can add more to the msg and or other art images, just gives it more depth, another idea that may help improve on something alreay good. also i like the guys glasses i could see you making them really bright to make a little nice effect for this image, but other then that it was a nice piece, hope to see some more work from you soon

Some frames borders would be nice, also adding anew color along with the purple would be nice, and you could probably add alot more msg and other images if the canvas was larger

Thanks for the thorough critique; Its very much appreciated.
As for the canvas size; the contest required that the entries were 550*400 pixels (this one is double the size) so I couldnt really make it much bigger.
Thanks though!
