In my previous post, found here, I showed off some of the stuff I made after just starting with photoshop. Its been about 2 weeks and I've done some experimenting. I am back for feedback and opinions.



Positive and negative feedback accepted!

Huge shoutout and thanks to HELLAWAVE for giving me tips along the way.

Thanks ahead of time

Okay, so first let me say I'm coming at this with very little skill myself and I'm also new. Looking at this you're probably further along than I am as I have been focusing more on logo design than forum and social graphics. So I could be chatting absolute waffle and I'm sure Hella will roll his eyes at me if he sees this.

1st: I don't think the colours work well together the text is really bright and vivid and the back ground is super dull. It seems like the texture layers are there for that reason only, to add texture and not to compliment the text? Like the roses coming through behind don't really seem like they have much to do with the text? Same with this little wave thing in the bottom left. But I haven't seen the brief this was made from, and what the customer wanted.
I like the text colours and would maybe brighten the background a little.

2nd: I think the top flare is a little strong compared to the rest of the image, for me it just seems like too drastic a contrast. I like the wolf, that's blended nicely. I personally might have took the colour out of the Forrest?

3rd: I like this, definitely my favourite. The only thing i noticed was the highlight on the left side 'tentacle'? is lit from below but using a global light source the light would be shining from the upper right side.
But like I said I like this one, I would use something like this myself, 100% good work!

Good work overall to be honest, definitely coming along nicely as I've seen some other stuff you posted and this is definitely an improvement. Looking forward to seeing your future work! Good job bud.

I appreciate your feedback. No customer requests, I have just been coming up with ideas. Kong is my PSN/Youtube name. Themes can be tough to follow through on. But I will continue to work and improve.

Thank you!
