The Fall of Sin - Extended



I improved the fluidity of the letters in this version and made it in poster form. Thought about replacing the original but decided against it.

Of course, you have to direct me to your two best pieces as the ones to critique. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":laughing:" title="Laughing"/> Your work is pretty consistent, however, and I could only find a few of your pieces which weren't really up to par.

I'll skip a lot of the good stuff because your comments have already covered that. I will say, however, that your color scheme is quite suitable for the theme, and that the concept is certainly suitable (however cliché it is). Typography -has- to be cliché every now and then.

The font below the design saying, "And the fall of sin..." is not easy enough to read- I don't know why. I just find that specific font to be a bit weird. Perhaps if it was a bit larger? Perhaps if it was a different font? Just remember that all of your fonts should be as easy as cake to read through.

I kind of find the effect done with "SIN" to have been a bit too subtle. If I was looking at this from a distance, I would perhaps mistake this as the word "SIN" with some letters below it. I would have gone a bit further and made the effect take off the foot of the N and a bit of the S.

Certainly, though, it's a tough balancing act between subtlety and significance, and you got it pretty close. I might be of dissenting opinion on where to draw the line.

I don't think it was appropriate to have the image so tall and skinny. I think that you should reserve the tall and skinny proportions for your sleek designs; this is not sleek. Your LGBT poster was much more sleek, and the proportions were much more appropriate for that particular piece. For this one, I would have gone with perhaps a square, or a rectangle at most. On that same note, the word "SIN" doesn't have enough room on either side.

Overall, great job. I really like it.
