.... who isnext?   254f0e94.gif


Can you even come close to nitenurs79's style and talented entry? 





But wait, I'm not interested in becoming the contender... Because I have different talents and strengths than her. And I'm an underdog.

Somehow I'm still considering my participation just for conveying the important message in this siggie banner.


( Latest update : Banner being removed, since I decide to withdraw from the competition. )



Update :  Officially withdrawing from the competition.

Hmmm. A little bit political Nai.

Agreed. We all have opinions / reactions to things going on in the world, I don't think they have a place on a forum for artwork to be shown or entered in a competition.


Back on topic:


Nitenurse - Great colours from you as always, love the whole glossy look to it and the background is amazing, nice font and the reflection works just right - 1 point.


Nai - I agree with your sentiment / message, but as mentioned above, it's not really the place for it here. A nice design and that's all - 0 point.




Nitenurse - 1


Nai - 0


Well done to RFX for winning the last round :)

I don't see the problem, as I've stated in the discussion topic.



Nitenurse - Don't like the colours, but the fore- and background work together pretty well. It's the red on the top of the 'i' and 't' that puts me off most, because it's on a green/blue background.



Nai - Nice idea and composition, but it just doesn't turn out well IMO. The focal is where it should be, although I'm a bit too much distracted by the deep colours on the right in contrast with the black and white and colours with much less saturation on the left. Furthermore I don't like the black border around MH17, it makes it feel like it isn't really part of the composition, although it's the 2nd most important word in the sig. It's a pity you made 'for' bright red and 'justice' and 'MH17' black/white, because that makes you look at the 'for' first, which obviously is just a word to glue 'justice' and 'MH17' together. Also the blur around the fist could be a bit smoother. Furthermore, the text in the bottom left isn't readable, so it's a bit unnecessary.



So my point goes to NN ^^

Before going even further, thank you chimay12321 for your objectivity and professionalism. This is the first time I'm swaying away from my comfort zone and where my core energy is- youthful, innocent art and pastel colours-to do some experiments with shaded, bold and striking colours. I learned a lot from you and your comments.


I realized that I have switched on the fire or hitting the bee hives, so with all humbleness I'm officially withdrawing myself from the competition. By God Will, there're will be a great lad who will take over my place in the competition, sooner or later.



Cheerio !

I can enter the competition if that's okay. I made this a while ago, but I think it's worthy of the competition.

Nitenurse - I really like rainbows and the reflection below your text is quite well done. Overall a nice looking sig.
JulioCoolio - A very simple sig, I really like the glossy, 3D effect you have on the text, but I don't really like the test itself, it reminds me a little of comic sans. It's a really good looking sig but I would've liked it better if the font had been different.
The score is now:
Nitenurse - 1
JulioCoolio - 0

nitenurse79 - I really like the reflections below your text they are the best you have done. The contrast color on the "i' and "t" are a bit over bright, though not easy to modify, with that effect. over all an easy to read signature with a nice background shape to keep the blandness away. Good color and composition. 
JulioCoolio - Thank you for stepping in. Your signature has a nice simple style that is accented by the use of the chosen colors,  The font used for your name is a bit unclear because of, I believe, the severe tilt of the letters and the excessive foggy shadow.  Granted you explained this is an early work and so not up to your current level, but I can only vote for what you kindly provided and given all that I do like it overall.
The score is now:
nitenurse79 - 2
