Really dig the different styles here. Ended up going with pigspig76 because of the collage style being something you don't see very often in digital art these days. I like the way the images work with each other to tell some sort of story.

Good to see Ink doing some digital work. I know it's not your normal thing so it's cool to see you branching out. Plus LUKE CAGE!!

I really like Skywalker's entry in every way except for the text. I think the composition is really well done and the effects are cool, but the typography doesn't fit imo...a bit too big I think.

Overall a great SOTW. Going to try and do critiques every week with my votes.

Thanks for the feedback. The image that I used was not of the best quality, so I was unable to either upsize and shrink it down a whole lot. In doing so, I lost what little detail I had. I got lazy and did not want to get ou my copy of Civil War and take the screen shot myself.

It has been a few years, so my typography game is currently not on point along with some other lacking of skills (I'm looking at you PS...). I had a feeling it was a little too big. Hey it is the Capt. America and friends :)

I'll keep working on it :) and thanks a ton for the feedback. It only helps everyone get better :)

I voted for Skeli.

I really liked all the entries, though.
Not sure what I could say for critiques that hasn't been said already here.

I love these comps! Curse my lack of a PC at the moment.

ok ill start from the bottom up..

sky's - i like it, but yes that font at the bottom.. the 'and friends' is kinda meh.. it just feels like it doesnt quite belong. Now, i do think the Captain America font works. hm.. maybe if it continued into the 'and friends' part, with a slightly smaller size, it could work better..? by no means, am i an expert.. but i think more aesthetically pleasing for me.

ink - meh, its ok.. couldve tightened up a couple areas.. maybe added some more complimentary colors, to kind of offset the yellow. its a lot yellow.. hah! there is a spot around the bridge of his nose that should be definitely toned down alot, to pull it all together.. gives me a feel of inconsistency, and throws me off a bit. it needs a border also. clearly, ive been out the game for a minute. /bigsmile ya border, that should be like sig noob rule 101. maybe, not in every case.. but this one wouldve worked out here.

pigspig76 - first of all, that wisdom! love the use of scripture here. tbh, i starred at pigs for the longest because there is so much to unpack. ive absolutely nothing negative to point out, accept maybe the reason it didnt get my vote was because it was so busy... which, if it wasnt.. then it wouldnt be the same. but yea, i was stuck in all the symbolism and i probably shouldve voted for this one as it really made the most impact on me.. /62 (kicks self)
itwas a curious blend of so much that kind of gave it a unique feel alltogether.. well done, pigs, excellent!

skelz - this got my vote. what can i say, dude is an OG. this is like the standard. proper proportions, centered, the lighting, the color scheme, the feeling that it gives off, the font works and it has a border! he sets the bar high my friends! /nod

Pigs76, you are right, it could have benefited greatly if I would have cut it down by some (such as you have just down). It ensures that the focus is near the center and better composition of work. I keep working on the text aspect of my work. I just got the phrase Captain America and Friends stuck in my head and based it on that. My head is funny times, and works against me.

Thanks for the feedback, not only for myself but for the others as well. This is very beneficial in all graphics works :)

Seeing as this was the first time in a long time that I've done a critique and the first time it's really been done here, I didn't want to be too harsh. I could have gone a little more in depth, but you all did that for me by joining in (sun)

Really glad we're doing these again. I missed the friendly competition and the way it helps me grow as an artist.
