    Help Me Understand

    Hey guys,

    Lately I've been completely away from the GFX world on every level.

    It's been weeks since I made a tag, months since I've given CnC, and (seemingly) years since I've been satisfied with something I've made.
    I want your help. I want to know what you all think is my best piece.

    If I can find the best piece I've ever made according to others' opinions, I may be able to determine what I've been missing and work off of that.
    I know it sounds silly but help me if you would please.

    Aure


    Simply comment with the number of the piece you think is best and why.

    For me it's #16. The reason being is, I think that tag has the best depth, lighting and effects that match the render.
    It's good to have effects, but not random effects that really don't suit the tag overall. Also the flow, and colour of the
    piece are spot on IMO.

    One thing You must remember Aure, is GFX should be fun. Because when something is fun, it becomes something you love.
    After all, if you didn't think it was fun, you wouldn't do it.

    bmarlo is right (theres a first lol) its gotta be fun mate fist and fore most but for #4 and #17
    on 4 i love the smuger and the lights are just perfect mate (although a contrast layer would really set it off, but i loooooove contrast )
    and 17 i shouldnt like as im not keen on verts or b/w tags but this has that atmosphere that makes me really want to inspect evey part of it, its a great tag
    Need any gfx making HERE is where to ask

    Aure i think you have a great understanding of gfx and tag making,i dont want this to sound patronising because thats not my intention but i think you should follow some tutorials but use different stocks to the ones specified in the tutorial.I find this really helps me when i dont know which direction to take next.My point is ,i know you dont need the tutorial as you are very accomplished artist but with your knowledge of photoshop and gfx i think you could make something great by following someone elses idea and putting your own spin on it.
    As for the tags 13 14 16 and 17 are my favourites

    I can't decide from #5 or #16. Why, you'd ask? I'm not really sure, lol. I think #5 is the simplicity and clarity and choice of color. #16 because it's got a lot of depth, it's a beautiful render, subject matter, it's also slightly an abstract, has a lot going on but is NOT "too busy," and coloring.
