ification (verb suffix - ala rainbow) - forcing oneself into graphics with a gallery.

First tag is lovely! Great blending of the stock into the background and effects makes it not stick out like a sore thumb and such.
To be honest, I never really liked the tag that beat me in our battle. It is low quality, execution was far from great and it all just is egh. Good compo, I think just wrong use of resources and stuff...
Love the vector, although the colours are perhaps too soft? Maybe the shading could have been more prominent but looks lovely all the same!
The second last one is a bit 'hmm' as well. I reckon the focal could have been sharpened more, as well as adding a bucket of contrast to the tag.
Other than that, you have great use of colours, range of styles and most of them are fairly unique.
You have secured a spot in my top artists at PC. :)

Love the colours, lighting layers and effects (especially the shapes and darkened c4ds).

Nice, pretty good as a simple thing but it may look awesome if used in another piece.

The others aren't as good, quality in the third is no smex.
Work on the styles you do best, then you will achieve the best.

The Martin one is amazing, to say the least. :) It looked like you drew it.

I also like the first tag of your gallery: good blending.

New style:

New style.I'm liking the first much better than the second.
I would have perhaps had more distortion from the water on the surrounding 'blocks' though.

As for the other image the second and third 'glitches' from the right are completely stealing focus and far too sharp in comparison to their surroundings.

It's an interesting style though, and quite effective with the first.
Perhaps more lifelike stocks (the same detailed style as the first) would compliment it better rather than the cartoony style of the second.

Those are the tags we love you for CT, not liking the new style much, it doesn't have much variation and the rainbowish colours getting used don't fit with the stocks :/

Back to normal CT, please?

Oh snap, I better go run this suicide note through the shredder. Damn I love shredders.

So you don't even think my new effect is (cry) cool?!

I think you pulled it off really well in the first tag of your gallery, I'd recommend using it more like that, not using the effect as the basis of your tag, it's a neat little trick, one that I really like, but not something that should have whole tags of it.

Wow I really like your new style, it looks really good.. :D

This one is just awesome. I mean look at all those purdy colours.. :3

Sorry CT but thread revival is against the rules here in G&P. You're not permitted to post in a thread which has not been posted in for 30 days or more. However do feel free to start a new gallery so long as you have at least 4 examples in the first post.
