Had these iterations on the wall for critique:
Comments I made on my own work:
It had been in front of my face the whole time and I’d been going around it in circles. So. Stupid.
After commenting on my own work, I realised that I could try making the unofficial more unofficial by putting a rectangle around it:^ Nope. None of those iterations looked right. Ideas sound so good in my head, when they materialise it’s a completely different story.
I was also recommended to increase the level of ‘gestalt’ in my work. I’m still so very unsure of what that word means, and everyone pronounces it differently (not that the pronunciation will help me understand the meaning). What I got was that everything needed to look in BALANCE. Everything needed to look like it went together (was one picture) and not just forced together. A kind of visual harmony? So if the circle is bold, the strokes around the cars shouldn’t be thin. I’m not going for a shocking juxtaposition, I need a visual balance.
^ First attempts at that…
