    Almost seems like theirs a little too much of that green color, and not enough pictures. Maybe. Looks kinda cool though.

    yes that's your opinion.
    I'd say it's more about sellection and placement within the piece.

    as for a criticism...
    there seems to be a major divide across the lower third.
    The mushroom is the only thing crossing the divide.
    I think that if the bike tire crossed the gap on the other side,
    then the piece would seem more united as a whole.

    thanks for the advice. i'll eventually add more, i've got all sorts of old nation geographics and shit from the 60's and 70's and alot of headie mags so they'll keep comin.
     
  7. After Photoshop i would say trying to do collages 'the old way' is kinda pointless...anyway, keep it up

    ^ what??

    But there's this thing called... TEXTURE.
    (i know you know this, I'm just a meany in this bench)

    It works quite nicely on a collage.
    But scanning the collage does kill it quickly.

    IF IM NOT MISTAKEN....

    IS THAT THE GREAT SALVADOR DALI PRESENT IN THE MIDST OF ALL THAT ARTISTIC CHAOS??? GOOD CHOICE, ONE OF MY FAVORITES... I DID A PIECE IN MEMORY OF HIM, INCLUDING ALOT OF EFFECTS AND CHARACTORS HE USED... LIKE HIS INFAMOUS ANTS & SOFT CLOCK, AND IN THE SHADOWS OF THE PIECE, LIKE DALI, I MADE A HIDDEN IMAGE, THE SHADOW LOOKED LIKE THE PIECE WAS FLOATING IN MID AIR, AND THE SHADOW BELOW IT IF YOU LOOKED AT IT UPSIDE DOWN, IT WAS DALI'S FACE, I WILL FIND PICS AND POST EM... PEACE

    i made one but it's too big to scan. and you'd probably never want to download it. maybe i'll take a webcam picture of it, but then you can't read all the fun stuff.

    eh....its not really here nor
    there...i don't like it, but i don't
    really dislike it.
    collage is tough. i definitely
    think its one of the best things
    you can sit around thinking about and
    trying to be good at. not too many
    people are good at collage in my op.
    keep it up though, anything different
    from the reg blackbook exercise
    is definitely worth persuing.
    tesseractin'up...get out of here
    you photoshop dweebster;)
    hey, by the way, that curnoe
    book i told you about has some
    bangin' early career collage work.

    thats a fresh little bomb thing
     
  13. Jesus christ...you make me sound like C3po....:)
    Anyway, i agree with you....texture is texture and 'traditional' collage has its own beauty.
    Just because i love talking about that ish, here's how i see it: I think that the history of collage and its own birth has to do with the rise of magazines, press in general...TIME magazine, national geographic, playboy and a shitload of others were (and still are) famous for dope photos printed in good quality...newspapers are also a good source for images hard to shoot on your own....murder shots/politician portraits etc etc etc....So at that time when typography evolved and high quality images could be printed the artists had a cheap and 'objective' access to material that was preety damn hard to gather by yourself...i have a dope photo of rauchenburg snooping on the photoarchives of a big ass newspaper...all those things lead to collage, in a way. The way i see it Photoshop is a 'collage' machine that produces in the same quality the original material is (perfect prints) i aint talking about effects and that ish here. That and the fact that you can score ANY type of image on internet these days makes photoshop the physical extension of collage.
    Anyway, i wont front...real collage has abilities and restrictions worth fucking around with...i'm just lazy:)
     
  14. ...hey, i know what paper looks like

    And just for the fuck of it, here's some of my 'collage' stuff(kinda)
