Lets see, I have been a huge fan of this man Vega for quite some time now, and this piece only strengthens my reasons for that. The lighting and color contrast is soo nicely done, the shapes all carry with them such a flow of energy, this sort of reminds me of how life can be. I like how rather than going for an overly complicated color pallet he has instead opted to keep it simple and more natural. Also being I am myself an ex graff artist, to see this wyldstyle used in such a way, is very enjoyable, this would make a truly great mural imo very nice work Vega, I would crit this, but alas I have no suggestions that could improve what is an already splendid work.
There area few things that strike me in this image.
1. The use of the background gradient is very good. I have seen them used quite a bit but usually see them used as a way to pull attention from an aspect of the center piece that may not have been executed perfectly.
2. The top most edge may be a bit to sharp for the rest of the image. I think that a flowing line could have been used to round out the top or perhaps adding a different color variation to soften it just a little bit.
3. the stem could have used a bit more attention, it looks like another leaf as opposed to the one object that is holding the weight of the flower. I think that because it looks like a ribbon and not a stem that it almost gives the appearance that the flower if floating on top. -if that is what you were going for then well done.
4. I think the bottom shadowing on the roots needs to be drawn away from the plant and towards the viewer. The back light and the shadows presented give the impression that the light is behind the flower and not in front of it, in the end confusing the light source position and the shadows presented.
Over all I love this piece, it's very good but with a little more work it could be great, know what I mean?
Wow, this is awesome. I like the bottom part even more, because it hasnt as much contrast and it is blurred in a few areas. The upper part is too detailed in the middle area. I like the border of the Flower. You probably have put some text somewhere, so the image would look more complete.
