Question, do they have to match/have a theme between the tasks or all separate?
You're in! Thank you for signing up.

Without further ado, let's see the results!
Thank you to all of the participants for our first ever edition of the Graphics Gauntlet. We enjoyed seeing your take on the tasks and hope you find our feedback and tips useful for future graphic-making!

TASK 1

@fashionchallenged

Melissa's Comments: I love the unique text and how you used the task requirement of the stars to correspond with each of the clones! However, given the use of four photos as a requirement, I would have liked to see more cohesiveness, which could be done with adding colouring and making sure all of the images are high quality (sharp, not blurry, not too dark). As well, if you do not already know how, I would learn how to blend images as it is a versatile skill to have when making graphics and more asthetically pleasing. You'll find you'll be able to incorporate more pictures more seamlessly. Nice work!
Bex's comments: you did a good job working around the 4 images requirement by having individual pictures of the girls and one of them all together. Something to be mindful of is image quality - the three pictures at the bottom are sharp and clear, but the picture at the top is darker and blurrier, which takes away from the overall quality of the banner. But there are ways around that - depending on what graphic program you use, you can brighten and sharpen your images. But your work will be better served by starting with images that are all of the same quality if you're making a graphic that requires multiple images. The use of the different fonts was also effective as a way of differentiating between the characters.
Eneritz's Comments: I love how you chose a different font and colour for each character and kept the coherence with the little stars. I'm not too fond of the font choices, though. For example, the one for "the rebel" doesn't scream rebel to me, and the one for "the soccer mom" makes me think of a young teenage girl instead (and as much as Alison loves glitter, she's not a teenager ). Everything else has already been said: be careful with the quality of the images and practice with blending the images. In this case for example, the background in Cosima's and Alison's pics is the same shade of grey, so altering Sarah's pic to make the colour match would have done the trick. I love the OB theme, in case you hadn't noticed haha
Sylvie's Comments: I would have loved to see you more seamlessly work your four images together, as well as use more high quality images. Starting with good images only helps with good quality graphics. I like the coordination of the star colors with the text, and I like the font selection for the characters, though I think "rebel" could've been in a more angsty or grungy font or color.
Mini's Comments: I like how you ventured out to use different fonts, text styles and images! My major suggestion here is to make a banner that looks like one whole image rather than 4 separate images attached together. The bottom three images in particular would have been easier to blend together with their similar background.

@midnight_kiss

Melissa's Comments: I think you incorporated the task requirements nicely and I love that you used the rose background of Lucy's photos as the background of your banner! I would suggest more size variance with the pictures of Lucy to add more visual interest. While the blending is nice, it does look a bit like all of the Lucys are Siamese twins so I would suggest rather than using lighten mode to blend, to perhaps try blending by using the eraser tool or cutting around the bodies to remove the backgrounds as it looks more clean. I also would have liked if you had incorporated the colour of the text somewhere else in the banner (through brushes, textures, or colouring) so it doesn't look as jarring. Great job!
Bex's comments: I like the fonts you chose for this! It can be hard to make two different fonts work together, but I think these are very complementary. I might have gone with a different font colour though - since there's no blue anywhere else in your banner, it feels kind of random. A light green might have been a nice choice, as there's a bit of green in the background and green is a complimentary colour to red and yellow. Another thing to be mindful of is your cropping and your image size - when you have multiple images of the same person in a banner like this, it's more visually interesting to vary the size of the images - maybe have one close up, one full body, one from the waist up, etc. Also be aware of how your images overlap and try not to cut off too many body parts. Blending can be a hit and miss task, so keep working at it!
Eneritz's Comments: Such a clever use of the background! It fits nicely and seamlessly. I also love the fonts and the placement of the stars. But, as has been pointed out, the blending could be better. In the second picture from the left, Lucy is missing her hair, so be careful when cropping pictures and with the layer modes (I'm not sure exactly how she lost her hair). For the blending I'd suggest playing a bit more with the image sizes and the contrast, and also adding a shadow between pictures (kind of like in CYO, when you add a shadow between the background and the doll). I'm not crazy about the blue either; all the other colours fit so well together, but this shade of blue is a lot cooler and less saturated than the rest, so it clashes in a not very pleasant way. With those details fixed, I would fall in love with this banner.
Sylvie's Comments: The banner meets all the task requirements, and I like your text work a lot. I would suggest you work on cleaning up your blending, since some of the Lucy's are very obviously missing arms, and it's jarring to the eye. It may be more appealing to try to do cut-outs of your subject instead of blending them into each other. Also, be mindful of cleaning blending up, since in some Lucy's the rose background is in/on her face/hair.
Mini's Comments: I like the text placement and the fonts you used work quite well together! I also think the placement of the stars also works well here. I like what you were going for with the blending, and my critique there would be to ensure the brightness of the 4 images are all the same. I would also be aware of what you are erasing as the arms disappearing makes an interesting conjoined effect rather than having the appeal of seeing separate images blended together It might be better to just have the arms overlapping or erasing what is on the back most layer.

@smilingeyes

Melissa's Comments: I love how you incorporated the colours and the stars very seamlessly, and the use of different sized pictures and flipping the photos really add a lot of visual interest! However, I would suggest to watch the balance of light and dark in your banner. It is quite dark with the colouring and black textures/brushes at the botton, and the picture of the upside-down girl is quite a bit lighter than the rest of the pictures. This could be solved by watching the placement of your resources, or perhaps a gradient overlay of white to black from top to bottom could have helped balance it out. Nicely done!
Bex's comments: this is gorgeous and very detailed! I love how seamlessly you incorporated the star requirement - it's subtle and it doesn't distract from the overall effect. The longer at this, the more little details jump out at me! The image placement and size variation is excellent and the upside down images gives it extra visual interest. And the font choices and text placement are pretty much perfect. My only small critique is the colouring - you've gone for more of a low-contrast look, which is a creative risk because it makes the overall image darker/duller despite the incredible amount of colour you've managed to include. I appreciate you taking the risk, but I think if this banner was a bit brighter it would be even better!
Eneritz's Comments: I absolutely love almost everything in this banner!!! The placement of each and every element is perfect: the textures, the text, how you played around with the images... gorgeous! There's so much detail in this banner, it's amazing. The hair in the two pictures in the top blend a little too much together, but that's about the only detail I can point out. The only thing I don't personally like is the use of colour. You had such pretty and vibrant colours but you muted them. In fact, you did more or less the same thing in the other two entries, so at this point I'm not sure if it's a conscious artistic choice or if we have the screens calibrated differently Anyway, great job!
Sylvie's Comments: I really like the composition of this banner and how you incorporated all your images and textures together very seamlessly. I would suggest watching out for coloring, since the small image of the girl has her face reddened, and that's a bit odd. I also find the bottom of the banner to be a bit too dark overall, and would suggest working on balancing that out.
Mini's Comments: I really love this! The colour combo is a unique one yet they all compliment each other very well. I do wish the banner overall was slightly brighter as I think it seems a little too dim. I would also have moved the "you can't wait.." text a little closer to "Dream" just because it disrupts the flow of reading the text a bit. The font choices are amazing and the colours chosen is perfect and fits in well without looking out of place.

@ayojasmine

Melissa's Comments: I love your use of textures and brushes to fulfill the task requirements, and the overall colour scheme of the banner is very consistent and nice! I'd just suggest to watch your colouring and image quality, as the largest picture is a bit grainy and the smaller image of the girl flexing is a bit blurry. Overall, I think the colouring is just a bit too bright and over-exposed, which washes out the pictures a bit. There is also a bit of white empty space on the center bottom of the banner from the girl's shirt which could have perhaps been filled with a texture/brush/another image. Good work!
Bex's comments: very bright and bold! I really like your image placement and sizing on this. There's some nice variation and I appreciate that you filled up so much of your canvas space and that you took care of the star requirement in a creative way. There are a new tiny nitpicks about quality I have - it looks like your background texture is a bit lower quality than your main images and the girl closest to the top right corner is a bit blurrier than the others. You also went with a much more extreme level of contrast/exposure in your colouring and while I appreciate the creative risk, it does wash your subjects out a little. Just something to be mindful of! And I really like the cutout effect around the girl in the lower right corner. That was a nice touch!
Eneritz's Comments: I don't think I have any critique to make here! Wow, girl! The choice and placement of images is perfect, the colours complement each other very nicely, everything is well balanced and I also love the colouring of the images! I especially like the outlines in the bottom right pic, they prevent the image from blending too much with the central picture and add interest to the piece. Well done!
Sylvie's Comments: I completely get the theme of your banner here, but my first thought was that this was a bit too bright, and I think that has to do with how much white there is in this one. Perhaps consider playing with contrasts, or filling some of the white space in the t-shirt of the main image. Otherwise, I think you did a good job of composing this banner and incorporating the images and textures cohesively.
Mini's Comments: I like how you chose to have the emphasis directly in the centre of the banner and the placement of the images also help create a sense of symmetry. I do think the brightness could have been toned down a bit to help the images look more clear, particularly the top right girl. The background is really beautiful but I think it also would have benefited from having less of a white cast. The text also loses focuses because of this.

TASK 2

@ayojasmine

Melissa's Comments: Nice blending and use of brushes/textures! Because you had to use at least 3 different pictures, I would suggest more size variance in the pictures to make the signature a bit more visually interesting. The colouring is also a bit too yellow and saturated. As well, think about focal points. Because the pictures are similar sizes and spread out throught the picture, your eye isn't really drawn to anything in particular. Great job!

Bex's comments: I like that you were able to harmoniously include so many pictures without the signature looking too busy. Your greyscale looks really nice and the upside down image adds an extra bit of visual interest and your blending is very clean. One thing to be mindful of: while I appreciate that you went for a bold and bright colour scheme, it helps to be mindful of skintones. It really takes away from the overall quality if your subjects' skintones end up being unnatural colours.
Eneritz's Comments: I love the placement and blending of the pictures. The colouring is not so great, though, her skin looks extremely orange. You also need to be careful with the textures and effects you use and how they overlap with the pictures, because her face in the upside down picture looks like a little tomato . It's a nice work, but I definitely love your 1st and 3rd task entries a lot more.
Sylvie's Comments: You did a good job of meeting the requirements in a creative way. I especially like how you tackled the flip requirement. However, I would suggest working on your coloring, since Ariana is very, very orange in this graphic, and she's extra dark in the flipped version. It's also a bit odd in the greyscale one how light/white her head is compared to her body, so that might be something to work with in regards to shadows/highlights.
Mini's Comments: This really caught my eye! I like the colour combination with the yellows and purples. Even without text, it doesn't look like anything is particularly missing there. The blending is also well done and I like the impact of the shadows of the images being left. My critique here is that I would have liked to see balance with the images on both sides by lightening the face on the flipped image.

@fashionchallenged

Melissa's Comments: All the task requirements were met nicely and I like that you added some text as well! With the grayscale photo, I would suggest cropping out the People watermark, as it is a bit distracting and ended up being right next to your text. Watch out for image quality as well, the grayscale photo has nice image quality but the flipped images are a bit blurry and the photo of her with the umbrella is a bit jagged and pixelated. As well, I would suggest a bit more creativity to make a more visually interesting signature. Play around with the sizes of the pictures, think about trying some some colouring and blending, maybe add some brushes/textures, have fun with it! Nice entry!
Bex's comments: having the two flipped Tatianas on either end make this a cute signature - they're like little bookends. Something to be mindful of is images with watermarks on them - your greyscale image has the People logo in the corner, which really takes away from the overall effect. I would have either cropped that out or tried to airbrush it out/cover it with something. Overall I wish this signature was a bit more harmonious. You've got one image that's fun and playful, one that's colourful and one that's more moody. They're all nice pictures on their own, but even though they're all Tat, it still doesn't feel like they go together, if that makes any sense. The font choice is nice.
Eneritz's Comments: This signature feels too simple, like you just pasted some pictures next to each other and added some text. I feel like maybe you weren't as inspired or didn't like this task as much as the other tasks, because it seems like you did the bare minimum to meet the requirements (This might sound a bit harsh but I’m in no way judging you or your circumstances, so please don’t feel bad, I'm just trying to be helpful and honest). The images don't really go well together. I'd suggest taking a few minutes to think about what look you want to achieve or what you want to transmit: a happy vibe, an elegant look, summery, dark... Then you can look for images that fit into your needs. Sometimes you start looking for pictures of a certain person and you find so many nice ones that deciding which ones to use can be overwhelming, but having your mind set on a theme will help narrowing down the options. Keep working and don't be afraid of experimenting!
Sylvie's Comments: Similar to the first task, I would suggest you keep working on incorporating images together, like with blending or cut-outs, as well as selecting high-quality, non-grainy/blurry photos to start with so your end result looks sharper. I also would suggest choosing images that don't feature logos, or at least cutting them out so they're not distractions on your final product.
Mini's Comments: My comments here would be similar to your banner with blending images together rather than having them look block-y. When using several images, it also helps to ensure there is some theme that ties them together. Although the same subject is used, the colouring of the images and quality throws off the overall look.

@smilingeyes

Melissa's Comments: Nice blending, colouring, use of resources, and I really like the creative way you incorporated the grayscale photo! I think that the smaller text could have used a bit of darker shadow to make it more easily legible. As well, I'd just keep an eye out on balance. There is more empty white space on the left side and a lot of colour on the right side so I think adding a bit of empty white space (through the use of a texture or brush) on the right side would balance out the graphic. Good work!
Bex's comments:
this is really stunning. It almost seems simple at first, but the longer I look at it, the more details I notice. And yet, it doesn't feel too busy even with all the little details. The colouring is subtle and your use of textures and resources is quite lovely. My only tiny complaint: the smaller guys get lost in the shuffle a little bit. I also wish that green leaf wasn't overlapping the text, but that's a minor thing. I love how creative you were with incorporating the greyscale requirement. Overall this is very fine work.

Eneritz's Comments: Again with the muted/low contrast colours, but this time I like it better You're like a texture witch. Seriously, what is this magic? This signature is so nicely detailed I've been just staring at it for a few minutes. The only thing that bugs me is that there's a colour change right in the middle of the picture and you can clearly see the division. You could have easily deleted that part on top of the character or blurred it out. Other than that, wow, just wow.
Sylvie's Comments:
I think your grayscale component works really well and is very successful. I like the overall composition of this signature and your use of textures. Some small critiques is I'd prefer the text for "the end" to be placed above the leaf texture, so it doesn't look like the leaf is overlapping your letters. Also, one of the small images (the one on the left) looks like it's a jagged cutout or something, since his head looks pointy. To be honest, I at first thought he was wearing a graduation cap.

Mini's Comments: I really like this! The colouring is beautiful and I love the fading into B&W. The textures and their seamless application is also done very well. I enjoy the font choices as well but I wish that the images of Harry and the text were a lot sharper.

TASK 3

@smilingeyes

Melissa's Comments: This is a nice cohesive icon set with great colouring, use of textures, brushes, and other skills demonstrated! I really don't have much to fault or suggest, other than to watch the consistency of your sharpness. Vanessa is sharper in some icons and not as sharp in others. Lovely work with this task!
Bex's comments: I'm so impressed by your work on this task. I can tell that you spent a lot of time getting each icon to look its best with all your layers of texture and image. Some of them are a little busy, but it doesn't bother me that much because I can see the work that's gone into it. The colour scheme/dullness level reminds me of your first task - it's not exactly my taste, but I've seen a lot of graphics with similar colouring around DeviantArt and Tumblr, so I know this is the trend right now. It's very well done, regardless. For the future, just keep doing what you do and following your instincts. I always look forward to seeing your beautiful work!
Eneritz's Comments: *dies* I don't know what to say except... teach me your graphic witchcraft? Each and every icon is very detailed without being overwhelming, and the set as a whole is just perfect. Congrats on your consistent work, and thanks for sticking with us until the end, Stace!
Sylvie's Comments: Your icon set is very cohesive. I appreciated your creative use of textures and effects throughout the set, though I do think some of them are a bit too busy. I really like your fifth icon and what you did there with the background image for the eyes requirement. Less successful to me was the third icon. I don't love the jarring perfect vertical cut on the blurred background image. Also, be careful about clean cutouts, since on the last icon, it seems there is a glow around Vanessa's hair from what looks like leftover background.
Mini's Comments: This is stunning! I love the amount of effort that was put into each icon. Once again, I do wish that the images were sharper (like 7 and 8 are) as the blurriness does throw me off a bit. The consistency of colours, with the green, red, and blue helps with the overall illusion of unity and it's clear that you made the effort to make it look like a cohesive set.

@ayojasmine


Melissa's Comments:
This set is very cohesive in its colouring and image quality, and I particularly like the icons that met the task requirements (such as the blur, eyes, and frame ones)! I actually wish there were more of those in which you played around with different cropping and techniques, just to add a bit more diversity to the set. Perhaps have some icons which are a close up of her face, some where it is her full body, some where she is more to the side, play around with it! I'd also like to see use of textures, brushes, and other resources like you demonstrated in your other entries. Nice job with your task entry!
Bex's comments: the colouring on these is so consistent! You did an amazing job incorporating all the requirements to create an eye-catching and cohesive set. My advice is to push your creativity even further in the future. Play around with some more textures, get more experimental with the cropping, etc. A lot of the icons in your set are cropped similarly, with Ari's head and shoulders being the focal point. Next time, try for a few more full body shots or waist-up shots. You've got good creative instincts, so keep at it!
Eneritz's Comments: I absolutely love the colouring of this set! It's very cohesive and overall well executed. However, It's a bit simple by comparison. Don't be afraid of playing around with more resources! Thanks for participating and congratulations on your work, you should feel very proud, Jazzy!
Sylvie's Comments: You met all the requirements in this task, and the set is very cohesive. I think the first and fifth icons are my favorite -- I love the effects applied to those. I do wish you had incorporated even more creative effects to the other icons too, since some are pretty simple.
Mini's Comments: You definitely fit the requirements of the task and making sure that the icons all look like they belong together with the filters and colour scheme. I do wish that there was some more complexity as many of the icons are single images with filters on them. I love the first and 5th icon and your use of blur.

@fashionchallenged

Melissa's Comments: I think you showed a lot of creativity with this icon set! I think the image quality overall is quite good (with perhaps the exception of the 1st/7th/9th, which are a bit pixelated), I like your text (especially on the 4th Tatiana icon), and I really like that you played around with lighting (2nd/4th) and different cropping (2nd/9th). While there is a unifying theme and common colours in most of the icons, I think the colour scheme isn't quite cohesive. Having a cohesive colour scheme can be done best through applying the same colouring to all of the icons, and can be done through using certain coloured textures/brushes on the icons. Nicely done on your entry for this task!
Bex's comments: great work fulfilling the task requirements. You've done some cool experimental stuff here that I really like, especially with the blur and the one with the four images. I also love the font in the last one. In the future, I'd suggest experimenting with colour a bit more. It's a simple thing, yet it can really take your work to the next level. Sometimes even just playing with the contrast settings in your graphics program can make your images really pop.
Eneritz's Comments: This is an improvement, Liz! I really like how you incorporated the task requirements. Of course you could have used more resources to make a more visually interesting set, but it's a nice work. However, the quality/resolution of some images is very low, try to look for higher resolution pictures! The set would also be more cohesive if you either used only photoshoot images or off-set/daily life images, since the style and finish of each type are very different. Thank you and congrats for making it to the end, and keep practicing! I know you can improve a lot if you keep working like this
Sylvie's Comments: I see what you were trying to do with the color scheme with your set with black/white/gray/gold tones throughout. However, I think it's not done cohesively across your whole set, since some have some of the tones but not others, et cetera. My previous feedback about selecting better quality images to start with applies here as well, since several of your images are very pixelated and grainy. The second and fourth icons are best in terms of quality, and that's what you should look for when picking pictures to use for graphics making. I also don't love the text over the blurred text on the last icon. It's a bit odd to me.
Mini's Comments: I think this set needs more of a theme uniting them aside from the colour scheme, particularly because of the images you chose. Particularly as they are from different sources (TV stills, candids, photoshoots) it might have benefited from sticking to one of these areas instead. Also watch out for the quality of the images, as the image in the first icon is particularly pixelated. I like the font/style of text in the last icon in particular!
