FrozOWNED!

Hey all,
Just a quick Frozone piece that I whipped up while taking a break from work.
Here's a revised version based on Magoo's excellent advice:I wish that I'd saved the original PSD, so I wouldn't have to paint on top of the previous version. It still feels very 'grayed out' to me.

Thanks for posting man. I wasn't sure what was going on when I first looked at it. After reading your description it became clearer. Your composition is fine but its not reading as a outdoor scene. You might want to separate the background from the foreground with a little atmospheric perspective. In other words the robot's shadows are too intense to communicate that it's in the distance. The figure in the foreground is a bit blown out so its a little hard to see him. Id like to see you refine this a little more.

Hey,

Thanks so much for the input. I've posted up a revised version that incorporates your suggestions. I definitely think the shadows were way too dark.

Definitely a step in the right direction. But the Frozoznes pose is still not clear. I suggest delineating his contours more with contrast. Try flopping the image and blurring your eyes. This will
1.give you a different perspective on the image and
2. Make it clear to you what others see at first glance. Try to make a a quick read so that we know what's going on at a glance.

Thanks Mr.M.

I got too carried away with the snow fx and it hurt the communication of the piece.
I think this one should have spent some more time in the oven.
