I've been itching to tell you this... ummm... you really need to work on the flow of your work. They're all brushed randomly, and not in one direction so that it doesn't look effortless =/

They're good, but nothing is perfect. And I agree with Sawyer, the brushing does seem kind of everywhere. (Not that mine isn't sometimes)

I also find your style too 'flashy', for lack of a better word. Sometimes simpler things look better than more complicated things.

I don't really understand how you're supposed to get a flow with Grunge Brushes where in tutorials, it tells you to brush randomly, maybe if you gave me an example, I could try and Improve, and I would like to try and make simpler ones with the Pen tool that I've heard of, but Adobe Photoshop Elements 3.0 doesn't have the same tools so I don't really know how I can make something look nice without using all those brushes and such.

Here is some more of my work.

If those tutorials tell you to brush randomly, they're written by morons. Try a different style, I don't know... try something where you don't download brushes, try making something completely yourself. Grunge was fun for a while, but it it doesn't have flow in any way, it just looks bad. And, you control the brushing, not the other way around. You can make the brushing go in a different direction than what it's supposed to be set to =/ Just read some advanced grunge tutorials and stuff like that.

They're good, but they all follow the same theme. You should experiment with other things.

Here's another, and does anyone think I should re-open my old shop where I was the only one making the graphics?

Pixel stretch... not good. I like the new layout, the sig is nice... but work on the shadowing, it's kinda weird where the tube meets the main interface icon.

I for one like your style, I just think it comes down to personal taste really, and if you like your style, you should stick to it. Some times your work can appear over the top, but its still good, and I can't say much, I like my things to look over the top, I have been told not to do it, but I can't help what I like XP

Everyone has different tastes, thats all I can really say other than keep up the good work.

Taste never overrules quality, though, Ookami. Sure, we all have a level of bias when it comes to style, even I do, but a good rater will classify someone's work based on the quality of the work in the artist's preferred style, rather than the quality of the work in the rater's preferred style.
