Hey you guys! Its me doing a Graphix Showcase like the olden days when I was a wee lad. I'd like the common /10 rating scale on these two Desktops and my Sig/Ava Combination please and thank you. Glad to be back aboard this uh.. board! Cheers. biggrin.gif

[constructive criticism]I like the second one alot. The first one seems too crowded.[/constructive criticism]

Also, the "x/10"-ratings are banned, since they are considered as spam.

and...uh...welcome back?

I gotta agree with yngve. The first one is too crowded, but the second is good.

The only thing wrong i see w3ith the first one is just the empty space on the outside(top and right). Other than that i really like the rest of the first and second.

The first one looks nicer, but anime makes me cry, and the fact it's the only hint of full colour puts the rest off.

I like the second one better as well, because it focusses more on one thing, instead of more pictures like the first one.
It's still a good picture, I can see you put some major effort into both of them.

Nice, I love your style. Same as everyone else though, the second one's the best.

papanesta just tells you not to do number ratings to throw you off. He actually is quite in love with them, and encourages bullsh*t number ratings to make the artist unsure of his or her artwork.

3/10.

Pixel, jesus man. A little more effort maybe? tounge.gif

Nah man, they look excellent. I'm not a big anime fan, but they are damn good. Now, the top one is a bit crowded, a lot going on, a lot of different styles and whatnot. The "tech" type stuff mixing with the tree...and then the anime, just seems a bit much to me.

Well done though. Better than most.

/me pulls out checklist

1. Strange 3D shapes with high-contrast lighting? X
2. Downloaded brushes? X
3. Kanji characters spelling nothing in particular? X
4. Anime characters you probably didn't draw? X
5. Bad plus sign patterns poorly masked? X

No offense, amigo, but it's like looking into a three-year old time warp. Back in 2002 this stuff was exciting and sh*t, but now... it's kinda really OLD. Perhaps you should develop your own style instead of emulating depthcore and throwing in anime?

You DO, however, have excellent composition. You placed everything in a pretty good place and it helps to pull all the parts together.

Well, I didn't use any brushes.. and the + signs were hand made, my high contrast abstract 3D shapes I used with Photoshop are my favorite. There is more style in the second one however because I was building a theme, the first one was a composite. However I do use anime I don't draw and I only use it as a composite type image that brings the whole thing together, except for the first one because that area was very.. empty. My graphics style has not evolved quite yet as I just got back into graphics from about 3 years ago. So bear with me eh? Haha.

The second one is nice. I might even use it to cover up my crap wallpaper. tounge.gif

The first one would be might look better if the top left wasn't black/dark.

Good job though. Better than I could ever hope to do.

Yeah i gotta agree with everyone and say the second one is better. It doesnt mean the first ones worst as thats pretty kickass too. But to be honest with you if want Anuj said is correct i really cannot give you credit for "your" work.

Sure, no problem. I'm just saying that anyone who follows digital art to any extent is definitely going to agree with the "blast from the past" part. wink.gif

Make your "logo" less horrendously large in the second one and I'll like it enough. If you want, I'll spell out "PixelBurst" for you in Katakana, but otherwise drop the random Kanji because it's just stupid.
