It’s a Snow Day here in VA! The ground is covered in nice white powder. Time to blog! What better way to spend the time indoors? Luckily there are two designs today that captured my interest 🙂
2/17/15 Top Pick; Son Of Hell
Composition – Nice simple bilateral symmetry. The round plate in the background nicely unites the two smoking guns in the foreground.
Color – I really enjoy the monochromatic reds with the limited cream color highlights.
Lines & Forms – Wonderful lines and forms in the details of the guns. I also really enjoy the geometry in the round plate. Hellboy’s face looks rough and is nicely highlighted by the thin brighter red lines.
Thank You Fernando Sala

2/17/15 Top Pick; Project 626
Composition – Awesome radial symmetry. The many limbs and weapons nicely balance around the center. I really enjoy the light blue icon and text on the bottom of the design. It pulls the eye downward, stabilizes, and completes the design.
Color – Nice mix of warm and cool colors. I especially like the glow added around the entire design. For example, the light reflecting from Stitch’s nose, weapons, and even background.
Lines & Forms – Clean line work. I really like the dark and light outline around Stitch. It makes him glow and stand out from the busy round background.
Thank You Emilie B

Great design depicting Hellboy as a prancing demon, labeled with his real name Anung Un Rama (“Upon his brow is set a crown of flames”).
Color – Nice creamy light yellow paired with the deep crimson red creates a nice contrast.
Concept – Interesting concept of having Hellboy look like the infamous French Quina Imp Poster.
Thank You Spicy Monocle

06/18/14 Top Pick; Headlight Glasses
His side slicked hair, light gray suit, and bright red tie make Pee-Wee easily recognizable.
Composition – Wonderfully balanced frame around main figure. The horrors of the forest seem to surround poor Pee-Wee.
Lines and Forms – Each animal is nicely formed and rendered in an etch like quality. I really enjoy the bear in the top right. His open mouth and glowing eyes look amazing.

06/18/14 Top Pick; Dark Fiction
Both seductively appealing and horned, this is a match made in hell.
Concept – These two super villains would make an awesome evil team! These two would definitely “shepherd the week though the valley of darkness”.
Lines and Forms – Nice, clean simplified render of both characters.
Thank You Zerobriant
