I drew this picture based on the lyrics from the Chemical Brothers song "Star Guitar"

Another interesting piece you have

And here we have another interesting piece its very whats the word well it needs more attention, more detail more color, adding more color all the way around that actually mix would be a plus aswell, but overall this was actually not a bad art piece but it for sure can use some improvements.

Some improved "FONTS" would be a nice change here, And pick colors that mix better.


Not bad

The colors aren't bad, but the writing takes away from the overall piece. However, I did enjoy what I read, as I can relate >_>.

If they're on something, I presume they are, I would put a few more colors in and maybe a pattern or two. Jumble it up a bit.

well, I'm glad you enjoyed the NOT drug reference. thanks for the review.

Too much writing

If you're going to do a submission that's based around writing, I would suggest that you get yourself a lot more practice with drawing the fonts - tidy them up and make some sort of billboard out of it, with the foreground taken up with the massively happy chap, that's doing drugs.

A quick change from the ultimately negative approach, shows that the colour scheme is nice, though I would assume that the reason that you've displayed the colours on one side as monochrome and the other as Technicolour, due to the symbolism, that without drugs, life is dull. It's not the case, trust me on this ;)

I'd recommend that you spend some time tidying up the image itself - smoke needs to be more than just a few lines rising up the page, the happy chap's head isn't quite completely satisfying in shape - these sorts of thing make all the difference.

Silent-G responds:

I wasn't trying to base this submission around writing, it just happens to be there. and surprisingly, you're the first person to ever dislike my hand writing. You also assumed that everything in this picture was a drug reference, which I can understand, but is in fact not the case. Who ever said the lines rising from his head were supposed to be smoke? You're making way too many assumptions. Thanks for the review anyway.

A bit shabby..

Well, MSPaint is a pretty bad drawing software, you can download GIMP for free, which is a pretty good one.

The handwriting is pretty good, and more interesting than some other premade font.

The rectangles on the right have no importance and just clutter the image.

The artwork itself is pretty shabby too. Your line quality isn't great, and nobody's arms come from their ribs, but that is a common misconception in art.\

I don't quite get how the message matches the image. You need to make it a bit clearer.

Silent-G responds:

MS paint is fine with me for the simple stuff that I'm doing. I've tried GIMP and I hate it, it's way too complicated and I prefer photoshop. I get that nobody's arms come from their ribs, but nobody has circle heads and stick arms either. I don't quite get why the message has to match the image, you need to be a bit more open minded.

Kinda nice

The longer I look at this picture the more I like it. At first I was "Eww, too much pink!" but then noticed the characters in the picture.

So, I like the left half of the picture very much, the character in front looks quite good. But the right side contains too much purple and I don't like the rectangles you placed there. They don't seem to fit into the picture.

Silent-G responds:

yeah, I got bored and went a little overboard with the rectangles. thanks for the review.
