Mad World



Well, if someone is going to write me a critique, please be aware that I don't do collages that often and the blending is probably not always nice as it could be. And I know I should've give more space to Frank but..the die is cast :( and it's so much better in real life than on this photo (for example shades of white) and *goes on with excuses*

Dark Blue Bullet - F2U! What art should you be expecting to see soon:
DeterminedHey guys. I've decided that I will be gone for a while (Ok, at least three days :D, let's be realistic) to create all the stuff I have got in my head (that will take probably more than 50 hours of drawing.) and to take better and more quality of photos of something I've already created. 
You can be looking forward to:
FINISHED work in progress

Before I start, this might be totally biased, because I simply LOVE Donna Darko. That said, I didn't realize it was Darko inspired, the first thing that caught my eye was Cellar Door, and how that is the most the beautiful phrase in the English Language; and then upon taking a closer look, I saw all the other hints.

So, no own to proper critiquing... lol.

The theme of the movie is captured brilliantly, and the text parts of the image brings it all together. You've managed to capture all the important parts of it.

For originality, we can truly agree that the work here is fresh, both in the style and execution thereof. It's unique.

I have absolutely nothing to add with regards to Technique. The piece is skillfully created and you most definitely have a thorough grasp of the medium and techniques involved.

As I've mentioned in at the start of this comment, I have a soft spot for Donna Darkie, so this work really does resonate with me. It made me rethink all the important scenes all over ago. (Do you also find that when you think back to the movie, you stumble upon an important point you overlooked before?)

Overall, I'd say this is a brilliantly crafted piece. I can't add anything that would make it better.
