    Next Top Graphic Maker Round Two Entries: Crits Posted

    1.
    19/30

    Well made with an appropriate choice of font for the image and a good layout. I can see the theme of the Paparazzi. However there is the possibility to do so much in this competition and I feel you haven't made use of that. 4/10

    Well made. I like the image you used There’s nothing which stands out about it, though. There’s this horrible black background, which you could have done so much with. You could have experimented with a few different textures, or you could have positioned the polaroid’s differently. Something to make it more eye grabbing. 5/10

    OMG kill me because i love it!!! I love it it's simple, i just loved the way you made it. that's pretty much all I can say, Its flawless. 10/10

    2.

    Good composition, particularly like the choice of photos. The only part I am unsure of is how the definition of GaGa's mask (centre) is lost amongst your blend. Really like the use of the lens flare and the colour scheme you have used. 8/10

    This is stunning. I LOVE the texture! Wonderful image choice, and it’s beautifully blended. Unfortunately, it’s very similar to another members work, so that’s disappointing. 7/10

    It could be better i dont like the middle picture. and she looks too close but i still like it. the effect its actually pretty, love the colours of it, The pictures are too close to each other too shiny... too full. Tho I still like it.

    3.
    20/30

    I like the way you have chosen to layer GaGa, however the pixel squares you have used for the background of the type really doesn't contrast well with the overall image or the lens flares. The glitter effect also distracts you from the thiner typeface. I do however like your treatment of "Unique & Different". 6/10

    Oh, I do ADORE the font. I love the text, and I love its placement. Take a closer look at the images. There’s some bizarre pixilation going on. The lens effect doesn’t really enhance anything. Solid blending job. 6/10

    I love it!! I love the pictures you picked, tho when i first looked at it i thought... for a reason it looks dirty!!! i dotn like the blur thing... i liked the text and the font you used, the colours are good, it's not saturated. i like it because it's very simple. 8/10

    4.
    9/30

    I like the choice of typeface and it's positioning. However I feel more care and attention should of been made to the cropping of the images. The GaGa centred doesn't work too well at all. Also the background either side of GaGa is very distracting, perhaps some treatment should of been made? 4/10

    You should work on your typography. The font isn‘t the most attractive, and it’s unnecessarily oversized. The middle image doesn’t really work; it’s oddly cropped. Nice image choices, though. 5/10

    Ok epic fail i dont dislike it at all!! i hate it in fact. It's sooo full the pictures are awful and the quality is just sooo bad the font is not any better and the colour of it. sweetie you just killed me 0/10

    5.
    25.5

    Great composition, and a very simple, but good colour palette which has been used throughout. I like the font and it's placement, however "I wanna be a star" perhaps needed to be made a little bolder as it is lost a little amongst the image. Really nice idea of putting a flash animation on the camera. 9/10

    This is beautiful. The most appealing part of the banner is obvious to everybody, so I won’t go on and on about that. The text looks a little squashed, so I would have maybe re-positioned that. A minor complaint, because the whole thing is stunning. 9.5/10

    Tho i kinda like this gif thing, I dislike the colour you picked this pink thing is not my thing, tho I don’t dislike it, it’s not my favorite. Its pretty simple I like that. I also love the background. 7/10

    6.
    7/10

    I don't think much time or thought has been put into this graphic. No effects seem to have been used on the photographs and a very bad choice of typeface and placement. This competition allows you to go wild with experimentation, it is sad to see you haven't used the opportunity.  2/10

    What is the middle of the banner all about? I’m confused. It looks really unattractive, and the font, along with the color of the text is ghastly. Awkward cutting. I like the images you worked with. 3/10

    What the hell… white and that yellow? That text is killing me, even I could do that in paint, and not looking!!! I dislike it it’s simple but not the simple I like. The only thing I like is the picture. 2/10

    7.
    6/10

    I have the same sentiments about this graphic as number 6. This competition allows you to do so much, but you just haven't used the opportunity. 2/10

    Nice cropping. The top right hand side of the banner makes the whole thing rather awkward; almost incomplete looking. Your typography needs serious work. The font is very amateur, and the positioning of the text is dull. Uninspired. 3/10

    Love the picture!!! Hate the rest… you putted text in colours woo!! How creative is that?! I have an answer for you dear… NOT CREATIVE AT ALL!!! I think we have different concepts of the word don’t we? 1/10

    8.
    18/30

    Really nice blend of images here, helped achieved by the use of effects.  I can understand why you used your typeface, it has floral detailing which ofcourse goes with the flowers. However I am not too sure if it works with the whole image or not, though I praise your use of an outerglow! 6/10

    Beautiful image choices. Really good blending. WHAT is the font all about? You’ve got this banner with really classy looking visuals, but then there’s this horrible looking font, which doesn’t mesh well at all. 6/10

    Its actually not bad, I like the pictures a lot! That effect is not my favorite but its not ugly or tacky, Im not into the font but its not ugly. Regular this week. 6/10

    9.
    19/30

    I really like how the GaGas have been positioned to look as if they are standing in a circle. It really helps frame the type below. The colour treatment on the photos really helps to blend with the text. I also like the smaller lens flares you have dotted around the banner. 7/10

    I’m not a fan of the colors. It’s too dark. The text is almost unreadable. I like the texture you’ve used, and I like how it’s relevant. Nice blending job. 6/10

    I like it a lot, tho as in the rest… im not enjoying the font. And it looks a bit saturated as you putted the picture too many times. But I dotn dislike it at all. 6/10

    10.
    8/30

    I am not sure if the grey space is an accident caused in the upload or if it is supposed to be part of the image. The colouring reminds me of a glitchy security camera, along with the grey space… but I am not sure if this was actually intended.. 4/10

    Hmm, what’s the colorization of the image all about? And what’s the gray all about? Nothing about this really works. The effects don’t enhance anything. Nice font choice. Slice placement. 4/10

    No… it looks like when you go to see a 3D  movie and you take off your glasses… and that text!!! Cmon do you think of that font when you see what you did to the picture? If you do buddy we are in a huge trouble 0/10

    11.
    27/30

    Very simple, but elegant. I like the Gold tonal/colour treatment you have done to GaGa (right). The light flares work well with the image, however not to well with the text. I think this problem could be easily sorted by making the stroke around the text smaller, or perhaps removing it completely. 8/10

    Wow, this is gorgeous. Really simple, but that doesn’t spoil things. Wonderful cropping, and that’s some fine blending. WHAT IS THAT FONT?! It’s stunning. Great job. 9/10

    I love it!! Shinny but not too much the picture looks elegant not saturated! Simple… nothing else I can say 10/10

    12.
    19/30

    Nice layering used on the GaGa's and the colour scheme just goes so well with what she is wearing. The type is very elegant and positioned well on the composition. However I am really unsure about the treatments either side, it really distracts me from GaGa and makes the overall image busy.  6/10

    I absolutely love the pink and purple look of the banner. I don’t think I’ve ever seen those images before, but I love them. Masterful blending, and I love the textures. The font is wonderful, and the size, along with the placement of the text is spot on. Well done. 9/10

    So pink sugar!!! It’s so pink I think I’m blind!! No it’s not ugly but god… I like the pictures and I like… no, I only like the pictures. The rest is too pink!! Tho you didn’t do a bad job cutting etc. 3/10

    13.
    8/30
    This really has a Sin City/ Graphic Novel treatment to it, which I think works well with these images and the theme. My only problem is the background. It should either be the full image of the photo, or the concrete like effect. 6/10

    This isn’t the most attractive of pieces. It looks very rushed. The black and gray coloring isn’t appealing at all. The images you worked with aren’t exactly the greatest. There’s not a lot to say about it. 2/10

    No… just No… that picture and that font and that colour… I can’t even say a good thing about it!! The details are good but, and im sure you know how to use photoshop well… but the concept is sooo bad!! 0/10

    14.
    12.5/30

    This image has a really nice flavour to it, different to the other entries. I think your use of type is very successful, and I like the vortex like background you have given the image. The photos have been treated well, and placed appropriately. The lends flare behind "Fame" however is far to strong, it draws your eyes to that instead of the whole image. 7/10

    Very busy. The cutting of the smaller image isn’t the best, and the placement of it is awkward, because it hasn’t blended well with the larger image. I do like the font, and how you’ve positioned it across the banner. Ambitious, but it doesn’t work as well as other pieces. 5.5/10

    Meh not awesome work, not bad, it looks a bit full, the text… too much too long maybe, I don’t know, its almost boring to read it. The FAME is too big and too white and too shinny.

    15.
    5/10

    Good choice of images and placed well on the banner, also I like the use of the lends flare. However this banner doesn't have the "wow" factor. Not a great deal has been done effects wise and don't think you worked to your full potential.  3/10

    There’s not a whole lot going on here. You’ve just shoved some pics down, without using your imagination. Awkward cutting, and the blending is okay at best. 2/10

    Simple… no text that was brave xD. Its not bad tho I don’t like this… colour-no colour thing… it dosent look good! But its not bad either. Could be better.

    24/30

    Very exciting banner! Love the elegant background, the interesting crop and placement of the photographs, which work so well with the type. I can't really find anything negative about this. 10/10

    Very slick looking. Fabulous cutting and blending. I love the text placement, although the font isn’t the most appealing. It needed something to give it a bit more sparkle. 7/10

    ur entry is great, bt i dont know why i dont like some colors. i love the masking and pics, but some werd colors just kill it for me. 7/10


    17.
    26/30

    This is gorgeous. Particularly GaGa on the right, I think you should of perhaps considered doing the same to GaGa on the left. Really like the interesting Flare detail, it really sets itself apart from the others. The type is very well controlled, and I like the choice of typeface. "Lady GaGa" could have done without the Emboss though. 9/10

    Wow, the coloring here is hot. Fabulous cropping, and the blending is really well done. I’m glad you haven’t gone crazy with textures, and loads of different effects, because it’s busy to the point where it works. I adore the images you worked with. Great job. 9/10

    this entry is amazing, gagas lips in the blck & white pic looks so great!! that effect u used is amazing too, fabulous entry hun!! 8/10

    18.
    16/30

    I like how the background (I seem to recognise the background from last week?) is also part of the type, an interesting detail. However, I think this could of been more exciting. There doesn't seem to be much use of effects, there is the possibility for so much more in this competition! 4/5

    Good crop. You worked with a horrible texture, and the font is very amateur looking. Not much to say here. 4/10

    i love it!! the bkground is pretty and the colors are very nice! the text is wonderful. nice masking.  8/10

    19.
    19/30

    Really nice use of photo film and scratched background, GaGa has been merged well with with the dark background. The text feels that it needs to be a little bolder so it can stand out a little from the background.  and perhaps the flash could be made brighter. 6/10

    I like the simplicity of this. The centred font is just great, although the text beneath it is unreadable. I like how the image is relevant to the text. The texture enhances the moody look of the banner, which is a good thing. 7/10

    i dont like it. its too dark, the flash is too big, and the text is ugly. u couldve worked a lot more on ur entry. but its not entierly bad. i like some parts. 6/10

    Everyone entered this week apart from Snow White who had a pass on this round.

    Remember Striker will be running next weeks challenge. So if the judges could send the crits to me asap so I can have them done tomorrow that'd be fantastic.

    Also I think I've figured out a way for someone to help me, so if it turns out I'm short for time tomorrow I may PM someone lol!

    Enjoy!
