So I've been meaning to make a gallery here for a few weeks now, but never did it, a little because I wanted to have more to add.
I will start with the latest and work down.

Updates


Updates won't be posted on this post, so look for the most recent post.

The image is a bit big, so I'll just give the link.

Your tags have one problem in common, no depth at all, it's all very flat.
I'd say cut the borders, they tend to look tacky.
That Groudon one isn't bad, but seems kinda low quality, not sure what happened to make it look that way.

As for the linked lp, there really isn't any sort of focal, it's just a blurry puddle?

Yeah, you've got a point there but you might be exaggerating a little by saying there's none at all because I can see a bit.
I like the borders really, but I'll try that.
I know, it's because of the image I used.
Well, I put 'Random' there in big white underlined text for a reason. lol

Thanks for commenting, I'll see what I can do with the depth.

You have something here, but I think you use too much white with most of your banners. I guess that's why it looks like you lack depth, since it's all just white, so there isn't much shading to add depth to it. Some of your renders you used look a bit oversharpened too, with the outlines of the pixels. Or that's just me.

But either way, you have potential as far as I can see. Keep it up.

Eh, I might use white a lot, but I'm not sure if it's really too much that I use, and yeah, the sharpening on some was a bit over done, well kind of, but I know how to use it better now. Thanks for commenting.

Anyway, I think I may have done better with the depth here, or maybe not, I was just doing more blurring, burning, and a bit of sharpening, also use of the dodge tool.
Oh yeah, I couldn't really make my mind up about the border, so I just did three versions.


Here is no border like Dukey suggested.


With a normal border because I'm not sure if it looks good without the border.


Lastly, I was trying some different, I'm not sure if it went that well though, kind of experimenting.

I'm still not really sure if I should use borders or no borders. :|

the colors are nice.

Just to clear up your border issue, in the latest update the one with no border obliterates the others.
It doesn't cut the tag off, it allows the viewer to assume it continues and isn't confined to a rectangle in which case part of her head and her whole lower body would not exist...

Well, I just slightly prefer borders.
True, but also not true, because it doesn't look as if the rest is cut off, it kind of adds to the depth making it seem more as if you could dive in. Without a border is like a sentence with no full stop. So I still slightly prefer borders, but just a bit.

This is a large improvement from what I told you, still a few issues I have with it though.
That squares pattern you used seems rather uneccesary, it's barely visible and where it is, it ruins a nice background, also kills any flow.
The three red lines on the right, and the one on the bottom are meh, again killing flow.

Very much an improvement though.
Try adding a sense of layers to your background blurring, way back stuff really blurred, and stuff that is fairly close to your stock you can still blur but not as much as the stock.

Thanks for the comments.
Yeah, the lines and patterns weren't really needed, I just put them in there.

Well, anyway, just finished this, and it might be better since there's no lines or patterns.
I just left out the text because I wasn't sure of where to place it, it could have ruined it.





Yes, I'm still not sure about the border thing.

I would have updated earlier, but I was doing rendering instead.

Anyway, I just finished this now.

Wow, on page three already.





Not really too great, mainly because I rushed it a little for a battle.

Woop I didn't notice this one. I'm afraid you bumped your gallery after it had been dead for over a month about 2 weeks ago. So I'm going to need to close this one up. Though alternatively I would like to suggest that you open a new gallery with your new works and start anew, it could most certainly be a good idea. At any rate, I must close this one now but please do start a new gallery as you seem to be improving quite a bit!
