Ok, I did this in Photoshop. I try to take what Raja said on here, and what you said, jak. Because, you wanted something to represent Hip Hop And R&B. So, I got the girl in the middle of the Turntable, with a mic, to represent R&B. I got the turntable to represent Hip Hop. The Earphones, for those who listen to music. And, the Mic, of course is used in music, and to keep the theme of the old profile pic. And tried to play with the word And, so R&B could be in that word. Anywho, this is what I came up with:




OK take 2......

Becuz u are my fellow artist & friend... im sure you can handle my complete criticism.... unlike Xcept & Raja... yes i saw your comments you 2 fart-tards


First... i like the encorporation of the mic... but becuz its the only realistic object amongs stilized objects... it feels outta place... also it may be a little to big or just placed in a bad position... but im sure you can work that out E-Z

The Headphones took me a while to recognize.... for some reason i couldnt get outta my mind egg beaters, but i knew that couldnt be right....

The 3 stylizied images (the headphones, lady, & turntable) There is TOO much visual conflict going on, becuz all 3 images are simplisticly stiylized... via outline & omission.... the overlapping is of the 3 shapes is just Too much... especially being as contrasting as Blk & White are

i dont really like the turntable but im ok with it if used more strategically... The knobs arent needed at all.....

If u notice there is NO flow to the composition at all, Lines go in EVERY direction... thats bad...

TYPEOGRAPHY I DO like the horizontal/ vertical arrangement of the text... "Hip hop -and- R -and- B" though vertically stacking letters is tradionally a bad thing... i feel it works well here

But the font is Bad... The 3D shadow thing you got going on... bad....
there are Too many separate shapes & lines, readability requires Effort, even with the red color

And lose the white border... not needed

My Advice

- dont feel limited by the area & space of your composition... experiment with a little more cropping off the page

- You need to explore more variation in scale for your objects. All 4 objects are about the same size.... thus there is NO visual hierarchy

- Colour Palette i have always been a fan of Blk & White color combos... so if u choose to keep your color palette... Greyscale the Mic... i can see the warms & cools of the greys in the mic reflecting in the metal


............i think thats it......... but good job nonetheless.... i appreciate your committment to this project

jak dont bein showing yo bitchassness with the big level words thinking u just said somthin

i have no shackles, my mind is full of artistic ideas and i think thats with new ideas come change. yea its somethings u don't want but it will broaden our horizon and also get a new fan base for the group to help it expand though the giga bites of CR. Its not a bad idea to change the avi to somthin thats simular but also giving new taste to the group

now start following rule number 2 and let some new ideas in the bitch!!!!

Lol. Well,I like it because it is busy. I like the fact, that the viewer actually, have to do some work, and really look at it. I kept the Mic as it was, because, I wanted that to be the only real object in the composition. I mean to record all this music, we love to hear, the mic plays a big part. So, I emphasized that, and kept it as realistic object, instead of turning, it color book style. Lol. Anyway, I liked your critique, can see what you saying. I just wanted to explain why I did what I did. I have yet to take a graphic design class, can't wait, lol. But, I still love doing stuff in PhotoShop. Yeah, the Mic was too big, but, like you said, because of me having it too busy, figured if it was small, it would of just got lost. So, I was like I can work with it being big, lol. Lol. On the bad position, lol. I can't ever get stuff, like right in the middle. So, I just have a habit, of going ahead, and making stuff off-center and on the side. Lol, My Intermediate, Drawing, Teacher said I was going to have to break that habit last semester. Lol, but, I can't, and I have got so use to putting stuff on the side, that I actually prefrer it that way. And, those images, I found on the net, lol. So, couldn't help the way some look. I mean the lady was in color, but, I just changed her into ColorBook Style, because, that was the thing I was going for, when, I was looking for objects, except for the mic, lol. Anyway. Thanks, for your critique.

Whatever the next picture is, it should ALWAYS have a mic in it. Mic check 1,2,1,2!!
