Could anyone rate this "art" thing I did?
Posted 4/15/16
I'm trying to improve at air brushing so I made this thing ignore the text.

Choose which is better and explain how I could improve if possible

First image: http://prnt.sc/asdr4w

Second image: http://prnt.sc/asdtmb

Just need some opinions.

I don't really see the defferance, but then again i'm colorblind and farsighted then there's the fact that I have no idea what you're trying to do.


If it's a logo, slogan, or banner for work or school then yea i'd say it's fine... On the other hand what I say doesn't really matter it's the employer and you, if it's a school project then I don't know becuase I don't know the project details but it looks clean so i'd give it a passing grade regardless unless you where supposed to do a image crop or sonething completly unrealated...

10/10 I hope you aren't to confused...

I'd say the first image is better, mainly because of the way the second image looks.

The second image has a darker colour towards the bottom with strokes going in all directions. The dark colour does not gradually change into the lighter colour used as a basis, which means it's very "out there" and made less pleasant to look at.
I'd say try to make the contrast in the used colours less obvious, by making the darker colour a bit lighter. You could even test out mixing some green into it to complement your text better. You have to watch out with this however, because if done wrong the green'll start to overpower your other colours. Afterwards make sure to make the transition to the base colour more smooth.

It's just a small difference between some wave type pictures.

Just trying to improve... This text is going to be used for something but that is still being worked on as for the main point of this is just to compare the water backgrounds to see which is better and how I should improve them.

Thank you for the advice.

I agree with this being the issue because the dark and light are wayyyy to obvious to tell from each other so I'll more than likely mess around with some more little tests to see if I can mix it to be more fitting.

As the dark color is intended to be giving off a more... wavy effect however it is mixed pretty poorly so I'll work on fixing that.

To be honest, I did not see water/waves in your first image when I first saw it. It struck me more as snowy mountaintops. Especially with the white, almost cloudlike, figures above them in the base colour. What kind of waves are you aiming for?

Originally for the waves I was aiming for was kinda like a raging water type thing like this http://prntscr.com/asnaph
Hence the white... I think I made the blue a bit too bright and I should had gone with a kinda fusion of dark and slightly less dark to make a more wavy effect.

Ahh I see what you mean. The base colour is indeed on the bright side for the "raging water type" you're aiming for.
You could use the colour you're using as a base together with the white to accentuate the waves to give it the "wavy effect" you're looking for, like they've done in the example.

Right now the main problem imo is that the base colour makes it look like there's a sky you're looking at, while it's meant to be raging water/waves. I'd try playing around with a darker blue colour as your base colour (the somewhat darker blue in the bottom of the first image'll probably work just fine for that), then start accentuating the waves with both white and the light blue colour you used as a base colour before.
If you take a look at the example, you'll notice that there's also lighter spots in the water. To give the water more depth you can try and implement this once you're done with the waves themselves. This way you won't have just one colour for the water, which makes it look more natural.

I'll see what I can do to improve when I do some more testing. Thanks for all the advice tho cronzy ^-^
