One of my Political artworks. Would like a critique please. (digital art)

Hello,
I am an artists and I have worked on this piece for a few hours and I am not sure where else to go. I would appreciate some feedback. It just feels to constrained. Maybe I need a few more panels with a NYC skyline or something.

Medium is digital art created in Adobe illustrator. ALL work is original and I would appreciate no one using it without permission please.

Thank you

NYC Skyline

is so over used. Show our vacant farm land and imported produce fertilized with human waste, or electronic voting machines, or treasury notes or gas prices. It's a good artwork though, better than I could do.

" Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of they day; but a series of oppresssions...pursued unalterably, through every change of ministers, too plainly proove delibrate, systematical plan of reducing us to slavery..."

It has a great use of poster

It has a great use of poster technique.

I think the message of Liberty holding an M-16 is somewhat confusing. It could be taken to mean "guns = evil", when in reality gun rights are much of what we are fighting for.

Interesting.

Make liberty black and change the lettering behind to red with a black outline .(red on yellow hard to read) change the gun to red and make it a different weapon like a hand gun. Then put a handcuff locked to one arm preferably on the one with the hand gun.

See the response then.

I like the idea of the yellow. and the backdrop.

Good Idea, Great piece.

We can all say what needs to be done, but who here led by example today?

A couple of comments

fix the gun
fix the y in liberty - too big

i think you should keep the

i think you should keep the gun complete. the way its broken in half, ruins the flow of the image.
also, how about a germanic font tyle for the writing?

I noticed was that the focus of the picture seems to bring the eyes to the middle of the picture. I have to make the effort to look at the top to see the words.

the yellow is for a strong contrast.

Yeah, the common font is helvetica...the most common font in the world. I probably should use something else.

I added in a skyline and riot police. Everything looks tiny, but in print it would be 5 ft wide.

I feel drained of imagination tonight. so I will continue tomorrow I guess.

oh and to who wanted me to e-mail them, please e-mail me at

I checked out your website and see we do similar things. :)

I like it

It is a very symbolic graphic. I would like to know what the yellow symbolizes. The "Where is my" font is too common for me. What if you use a more weathered or ragged style font symbolizing the wear on Liberty and Freedom that we are all looking for as it has been beat up over time by big govt? ( only a suggestion).
Keep it up, it's better than what I've done!

I am not an artist. Just

I am not an artist. Just wanted to comment that that is a very provocative piece. I hated the statue "holding" the gun, but it is so true. I think a skyline would take away from the universality of it. how about a stylized tiny peace march with something that looks like people carrying peace signs with police hitting them, in a cagelike structure or somesuch? Great artwork. Evokes emotions and I really like it. er..hate it..

Hey penfold1987

Nice work.

I'd like to see it again without the blue USA in the background (keep the stars/stripes) or, perhaps, 50% opaque. Rifle size reduced by abt. 20%. The image is very heavy in that upper right corner and leads me away from symbolism of statue.

I'm a Photoshop nut too so I appreciate your work. I like it. It's good but not great but I think you're getting there.

Good luck and send an update.

Hope I haven't been too harsh. Nothing personal.

It takes a lot to be too harsh in an art critique. ;-)

I appreciate all your comments and I def. see what you saying. I stepped back when I read your comment and you are right. I'll get right back to work on it.

Thanks.
