This is my entry for this weeks competition, it took about 5 days. I am very proud of my entry and I hope you enjoy the unique style.
Thank you for the comments guys, I hope to make another piece in this style, seeing as I am still trying to find my own style, I feel like this one suits me well. I will try to edit this one sometime too, thank you for the tips Manupix and Setzer, it's really appreciated.
Editing is ok until the deadline, and also after the vote.
The newspaper idea is not readable. Those lines are too random, the columns too close. Try to have a title, one or two large initials, maybe some pictures.
The blue "newspaper" in Setzer's edit is interesting too, makes for a better balance of colors throughout the image.
Oh my gosh, thanks for reminding me about the palette! Credit for the palette goes to Syosa.
Yeah, I forgot to mention that, it was really late when I finished. I should have put it in WIP, I like your idea of sunset. I tried to make it look like a newspaper, but now I see it could have easily been a sea with sunset overhead. Should I edit it? Or would that violate contest rules? I already sent it in as it is now.
Thanks for the comments guys!
I think something a bit more beach and sunsetty could've worked better for this background, I made a quick sloppy edit to illustrate the point. That being said, nice job.
I love the palette!
Since the balloons are displayed as a sort of silhouette poster, this effect might have been stronger by spacing them more evenly, and maybe having similar vehicles on the ground.
