Today someone commented on one of the first works that I posted for critique over here at the Fracfan Forum.
The original picture (below) was posted back in April. At the time I really, really liked it. Now, I'd put it firmly in the "OK / not too ugly" basket, but certainly not my best / most memorable work.
In fact, compared with recent work, its positively dull. The criticism received back in April certainly helped the process along. For one thing, after that I stopped framing my work.
Subsequent comments / requests have lead to incorporate "icon space" in the graphics designed for desktops. Below are two of my most recent efforts.
I wonder what I'll think of the above two works six months from now.
