    McVeighDesigns Thread

    Thought Id make my own thread on here instead of making a new thread for each new piece which will help save me cluttering the forum (Y)

    These are in order of when I made them which dates back to more than a year or so now when I first started using PS. I think there's a clear improvement as you move down them lol. I've made a lot more but Im only putting in the ones that are "good".

    Re: McVeighDesigns Thread

    Really nice work Vetoed. I like the use of grunge, the bleached images, the metaphors.

    Only one I don't like is Deuce. The figures are too centered; as a woman I object to the personification (but I know that doesn't matter to guys out there so ... ); and I don't like the head on the guy, mostly because I really can't make out what it's supposed to be but also because it doesn't blend well.


    I have a couple comments on Can't Hold Us. At first I thought the washed out look was too much. I think it is the play of the letters against the image. I think it might work better if the image were even more washed out in contrast to the black lettering. Another thing I considered was increasing the color and contrast a bit on the BG image and having the text change its shade depending on the BG color. Or, do nothing!

    Good work.

    These comments refer to the first post. So far I haven't looked through all the others. But I think my favorites are those which, like there, are cover designs or "landscapes/manipulations" rather than portraits..

    Thank you, I appreicate you checking out my work

    I don't even really like this piece myself but I was listening to the song over and over and I just wanted to try and make something for it. The songs all about partying etc and he's not that big of an artist atm and there was only a minimum amount of pictures that included him and this particular image seemed like one that fitted the theme of the song. He wears a mask, thats kind of his "thing" lol Yeah he doesn't blend well with the bg. I think that was my 2nd attempt at manipulating stock and I wasn't that great at it lol

    I agree, I made that cover ages ago when I would just throw textures over an image and add some kind of text that looked cool. I guess if I was to do it again I would try your suggestions. Its funny how the public works, that was one of my simplest covers and its been downloaded 4,480 times and other covers I spend ages on don't get noticed lol

    Good work.
    Again I appreciate your constructive criticism as it will only help me on later pieces and thanks for checking my work out
