Sorry this one is so late I was pre-occupied playing "Gun" :chuckle:

Ok so here's how it works vote for ONE design in EACH group. So you should be making SIX votes. Please do not select two designs from one group that'd just be silly.

Group 1: Entry 2 - Both weren't good, but Entry 1's text was really weak. 1 was just a few Alexander picture's thrown together with some text that has a stroke slapped on it. Maybe try putting a gradient on it. 2, background is too plain, but the text is what made me vote for it. It goes well with the graphic all together.

Group 2: Entry 4 - 4 blew 3 away. 3's background doesn't look good. The right-hand picture is way too small, I suggest removing that all together. Add an effect to improve the image quality on the left-hand image too. 4, nothing to criticize.

Group 3: Entry 6 - 6, just because 5 was so bad. 5, at least make a background. You just put a solid color and added a whole bunch of pictures of Shockey. It looks tacky. And the effect on Kearse was nice.

Group 4: Entry 8 - 7's brick wall effect was cheesy, and 8's text is average. But 8 just looks better.

Group 5: Entry 10 - Just looks better. Also, 9 didn't make the background, I've seen it before on good-tutorials.com. Click link and scroll down http://www.visualdesigncore.com/tutorials/photoshop/Signature-Backgrounds/

Group 6: Entry 11 - Not liking the size of 12.

Please don't get offended by my comments and flip out.

Why is it my problem if people can't take criticsm. I'm not gonna be soft on them and be like "Yours is good, but I like his better!" I'm going to tell them what parts are bad and not done well, so he/she can change them and/or know what to work on. But just to make you happy, I'm gonna go back and point out every little part so they know specifically which to change.

it's fine to give "constructive" criticism... that is, if you think something doesn't look good suggest a way of improving it don't just say it's terrible. :wink:

#4 was so simple yet so effective.

#6 was very original and eye catching

#8 was unreal. Excellent work.

#9 (Hutchinson) was a very cool concept. Eye catching.

Good work guys...see you in round 2. :D

What do you guys vote on?

Do you vote on composition and theme our do you vote for the one that has the best PS tricks or is most original?

I vote for composition and theme. That way, I'm not trying to vote for who can use PS the best, I'm voting for who I think is the best artistically

Just curious as to what everyone else is looking for, except for backpacker of course..

I look for composition, quality and sharpness first. You don't always have to use every trick in the book to have a good looking image. 99% of the time simple is better as far as I'm concerned.

Color use is big with me as well.

There is a difference between giving feedback and being a prick. You need to work on being less of a prick and just sticking to feedback.

I gave feedback on where people did bad and what they should change. That's what feedback is. I didn't just say "This **** sucks! Stop doing graphics! You suck!" What else do you want me to do? But maybe I am being too harsh, since my judgement is effected by comparing these to work done by people who do this for a living. Sorry.

Ok ok, let's not get too worked up over it. I will give my opinion if that'll make a difference. (Voters, don't be swayed by my opinion. Art is in the eye of the beholder so if you haven't voted yet don't vote based on my opinion.)

GROUP 1
Entry 1
I like this one. The only thing that sticks out to me if the font. I would have experimented a little more with it.
http://www.finheaven.com/clear.gif
Entry 2
I really like this one. It's clear, concise and clean. No overused effects just for the sake of effects.
http://www.finheaven.com/clear.gif

GROUP 2
Entry 3
Like the first sig I like this one but the text bothers me a little. I would have experimented more with the text positioning and made more of the "bad to the bone" text and less of the "Sean Taylor"
http://www.finheaven.com/images/imported/2006/02/taylorsig8gw-1.gif
Entry 4
Wouldn't touch it. It looks really good.
http://www.finheaven.com/clear.gif

GROUP 3
Entry 5
Maybe should have used a few less pictures of Shockey, or spread them around the canvas a bit more. Should make ore of the text to disguise the background a bit.
http://www.finheaven.com/images/imported/2006/02/finshockey4lu-1.jpg
Entry 6
I like it. I would probably have used a diffferent font for "freak" but I don't think that's really important.
http://www.finheaven.com/images/imported/2006/02/55686684-1.jpg

GROUP 4
Entry 7
I can't see it for some reason... will get back to you once I can
http://www.finheaven.com/clear.gif
Entry 8
Nice. I don't think anything really needs to be done.

02-05-2006, 05:59 PM
GROUP 5
Entry 9
I like it. I would probably have gone with the Seahawks logo instead of the Pro Bowl one but that's just my humble opinion.
http://www.finheaven.com/clear.gif
Entry 10
I like this one. I would have tinkered with the logo a little more though make it blend a bit more with the Steve Smith image. Maybe used some blending options. Nice work though.
http://www.finheaven.com/images/imported/2006/02/SteveSmith2-1.jpg

GROUP 6
Entry 11
I like this, it's clean and clear. The only thing that bothers me is the large gap in the middle. I probably would have moved the left image over a little to cover it assuming it wasn't cut out.
http://www.finheaven.com/clear.gif
Entry 12
I like this one I just wish it were a little bigger.
