    The programs I use are Gimp version 2.6 (Fairly Well Knowledgeable) and Photoshop CS5 (very little knowledge). I know most prefer Photoshop but I have a hard time with navigating it probably because I've used gimp for so many years alone. Anyway, my style is generally pop art. Wonder what you guys think of this to make it look it better.

    It's abstract, represents the American mentality of money on the brain. What would you suggest I do to improve? I'm not selling to art conisourres btw, only people on etsy and listia.

    The graphic looks like a negative of a photograph.

    It's up to you, but I would strive to make it less clutterd if I were you.

    So you have probably added some effects and you ended up with this...

    Your idea is nice but realization is bad indeed. :(
    If you want you can put roots on the dollar bank and spread it out on the brain...

    But again if you just want to display this like a message to people, then work a little with effects and so.
    In this case extra effects like roots and that shits are not necessary :)

    I had already worked on this version wizox after I read the other Wiz feedback. I like your idea as well I will go through them and see how they work and use the one I like the best. Here's the latest idea.

    Second one is much better! Now try to find a pic with a head with only the brain showing
    and include that in the center. :)

    I would just have the brain with $ signs in the shadow areas and have the circle around it part of a question mark.

    To me it looks like 2 images on top of each other with a (in this case negative) effect. Not sure what there is to critic, what did you do exactly?

    You've called it 'Art' so it's hard to critique it in a way you say "make it look better' because art is completely subjective.

    I personally think your piece looks really cool. However if you have a style that you're going for/influenced by you could try and observe why you think they look 'good' and maybe try and incorporate those elements into your designs.
