Yep yep.

I spent most of my Saturday working on this, lol. I almost didn't finish:
Photoshop crashed on me and I forgot to save most of it. :noes: When I restarted, I only had 10% of the complete product.

EDIT: Added mushroom cloud and text. I didn't before because it felt a little busy, but eventually I did it anyway as you can clearly see.

Fun fact: The quote came from :iconredcloudjashin: herself. So thank her for it. :lol:

Sorry Cassie, I had to tone it down for the contest that I'm entering. :<

I lol'd. Quite passionate, eh?

It's been a while since I wrote the artist comment for that picture, but I'm sure that I said that it was a quote by a friend of mine, and that I figured it would be fun to illustrate. My personal opinions have very little sway on most of my work, if any.

If you look for a second, you'll actually see the irony in it. The picture and the statement are rather tongue-in-cheek, if you will.

I am not trying to discourage you or anything, but I am just not really a fan of this. I mean for the most part I agree with the saying (but thats not what I am here to talk about). It just feels extremely odd to me that the whole big form has a shadow, but most of the form is an explosion. I think it would have been better with a dark background and have it emit more light. The varying textures also really throw me off (the vector doves juxtaposed to the photographic jet fighters). I would say go all vector or all photo. The colors are also a bit "wiggy" (yes thats a technical term) but despite being all warm colors they don't mesh too well. Mostly because the dominant red is too cool (has too much blue in it) compared to the oranges and yellows of the explosion. I don't mean to be rude and I think its a great concept. I also think it would benefit from a simpler font

Heh, I'm not offended at all.

Thanks for the critique.

Hey no problem. I'm not so good at designing myself so I know what to look for :P
