I'm pretty new to this forum, so I hope I'm putting this in the correct place. I'm not necessarily "showing off" something that I have created, I'm posting more to get some feedback.
I was approached about making a poster for my school's spring dance concert and I agreed to give it a shot. Pandora is the theme of the dance concert. The poster s supposed to be somewhat chaotic and incorporate things like cupcakes, monsters, faeries, masks, etc... A lot of esoteric kind of images as you might expect in something called pandora.
I don't usually do graphic art, I'm trying to do this poster in PdN. It is my first shot with the program, but I am getting the hang of things pretty quickly (largely thanks to tutorials that I've been doing from this site - thanks).
Here is what I have so far (these images are half the size of the originals):
I also want to incorporate outlines of dancers like here (although I don't like the way I placed them and applied the transparent gradient here... definitely needs some tweaking):
Does anyone have any ideas or techniques that would help to improve the poster?
