  • First Project creating 10 flat head design CRITIQUE PLEASE

    So I just create a personal project to create 10 flat design per day. On the first week, I create the head, the second-week body, the third-week background/landscape and the last week I combine everything. I just recently active creating/drawing stuff for about 2 months. I love drawing character design and for the start, I want to practice flat design first. So here they are I complete my first week. I also have a blog where I post graphic design daily.
    Please give your critique and opinion about my works!
    thanks

      This is not graphic design, so there is really nothing to critique here. It is an artistic exercise, the result of which can only really matter to you,. so if you're satisfied with the output, it's good; if you're not, it isn't.

      That said, some of them are pretty interesting. Like the results of any exercise which requires a certain quantity of output, some of it reaches too far, some of it's lazy, and the stuff in between is probably the most "correct," or at least balanced. One thing I see clearly here is you could use some work on your approach to noses. Obviously, with this many variants, you strive to avoid repeating a technique too often, but a repeat would be better than copping out with a simple rectangle. A constructive comment I'd make is that real noses are most often sources of both highlight and shadow, so while I understand the objective here is "flat," the all-darker-than-face-tone shapes don't work well. You could use multiple shapes for noses; some darker, some lighter (than face tone) for better believe-ability, without breaking whatever rules govern "flat." (You did it with some of the hair features, reflections on sunglasses, etc.)
      I'd rather be killed than come to your party, but if you don't invite me, I'll kill myself.

        Thank you for your opinion. I agree with everything that you said. I think the term "exercise" is more suitable in here. My head has a lot of variants because I try to copy from many people. I know that some combination work some don't. Yet, I decided to include the bad one to know what I can create in one day (is it make sense?). For the highlight and shadow, I honestly still figure out how to do that. I also use this exercise to make myself more familiar with the tool.

      Nice work! I admire the discipline needed to do ten per day. Have you considered selling sets of them on iStock or Shutterstock?

        I think my picture/set still looks horrible. I don't know if anyone wants to buy it.

      It's just what I call it when people use an expression that actually says or means the opposite of what is intended; ''could care less'' would be another prime example.

      That makes sense, I guess. Off is the inverse of on, which makes based off the inverse of based on. Got it. ...

      Okay, I know what a colloquialism is, but what is an inverse colloquialism?

      Probrien, in addition to HotButton's comments, which I agree with, the ad is a bit confusing. Maybe it's lacking...

      ''Based off'' is inverse of ''based on.'' ''Based on'' is a colloquialism.
      I think.
      I have not had enough to drink to play this game.

      Thanks for the feedback. That all makes a lot of sense. I'll take these points and re-work things....
