what to say about this one except - perfect.

i am a fan of minimalism and this is - it. the repeating background, the simple typography (maybe a grammar problem though - welcome to THE rupture), the simple symbol - a clenched fist.

a bit more work on the hand itself would be cool, since it is a bit fuzzy, unlike all the other parts of the poster.

love the dull-ish colors in the background clashing with the skin color of the hand. possibly, also, the hand could be a bit thinner towards the bottom, seems a bit big honestly.

but overall - i like it very very much.

This really is a nice vector with a interesting concept :)

I like the constructivist style to it a lot, which can be achieved very good with simple vectors.
The font is nicely set and the 3D effect looks very good on it.
Alltogether the shapes could be more refined, but for the wanted look it is ok the way it is.
The color scheme is very appealing and gives a nice atmosphere.

The only thing that really bothers me are the sort of inner shadoes on the hand/fingers. i think it can do without them very good. Or you could use some clear lines/cell shading to add more "depth" to them. But a soft/blurry shadow looks rather off in such a crisp style that you maintain throughout the rest of the piece.

Overall i gotta say i like the piece and hope you continue making such nice artworks :)

I hope this could help you :heart:

This is awesome, I recently set up a website called 'Poster Spy' which is a social network/portfolio solution for poster artists and I'd love it if you could share your work with the other artists.

Well, they're similar... but Plaza is commercial... I used free font. And it's stored in my project folder, so I know for sure. :D

Man you must be joking cause improvement is noticeable in every new deviation you upload, all this hours in front of the computer are giving effect :D :D

Yeah I agree with you man, I've been busy this last months too, working in design and I just returned 3 months ago to my last and first job, so I've been out of this for a long time.

Extra big hug from Mexico! :hug:

I love it. Great job. The guy talking about the chains, I think he might mean putting them on the wrist like the character from the first game, the tatoos he had. But I like it this way because it shows that there was a Rapture before the occurances of the first game. It shows Rapture in it's prime, before it destroyed itself. And I totally got the waves and the position of the buildings. Like all art, you have to have a little knowledge of the subject matter to really appreciate what's going on. I defineatly can see this hanging in the subways station of Rapture, or near the theme park or theatre. Amazing job!

Keep up the great work.

well done, great color choices and i agree with :devnekogothicksporkie: about the buildings. I think that if you moved the buildings up on the sides it would also frame the text better.

Yes... but this picture represents Rapture at the bottom of the sea... buildings can't reach the surface of the sea which represented as greeny gradient.

Oh no i'm not saying bring them up that much, just change the shape to frame the fist more, give it more of a curve.
