So you stole the quote and stole the photos and did a horrible cut and paste job. Ehh...jeeze, you could at least try to make it a little more artistic, maybe do the drawing yourself or even try to mess around and make some interesting looking typography related to the quote. It wouldn't bother me so much that the quote and the pictures are just a rip off the Internet if only you made it look artistic in some way. =/
I've already made a disclaimer about the quotes. I've given credit to the original images. I did edit the images to make what I did--please don't call it "a horrible cut and paste job." That's rude and offensive. I'm sorry the series bothers you, but in all honesty, sucks.
You may find it rude and offensive but you should take it as it is which is critique. It really is just not well done. You could at least try drawing something, after all this is an art site. Try painting or using markers or hell even crayons. You could even take the text and get creative with that and make it swirly or put pictures on the ends of the words to make it look unique and interesting.
When you take things that are other people's creations already, their photography and their quotes and slap it together and upload it as your own, when you don't even bother making a real effort I just find that sad and very wrong to do to other people's original works. It is clear here that you didn't even make an effort to make the typography interesting or that you even wanted to do a smooth looking cut and paste job, hell I can see all the pixelated edges on the photos. It just looks bad.
Don't be offended, take this as a critique to better your artwork.
It sounds like you seriously don't want to listen to any critique at all.
I said multiple times to actually work on your typography, draw it and make it creative looking relevant to the quote. I never even remotely suggested you draw something totally different.
Here are some samples of really interesting looking typography. [link]
What you have here is I am guessing Times New Roman white text on a black background with a badly cut and pasted couple of photographs. Do you see the difference in how you can make your typography actually look interesting versus just typing white text on a black background?
Did you look at the original images? [link] and [link] If you did, you'd know that I couldn't have just copy pasted them. Obviously, you can't recognize fonts. So I'll let you know that the font is Felix Titling. I chose it because it is easy to read. The text is not white. White would be #000000 the font is #bcbcbc which are actually very different. The "Black" (which would be #FFFFFF) when the color is #212121. Both are VERY different. I'm sorry you can't distinguish. I chose those two colors because they are easy on the eyes. The series is more DESIGN featured rather than tra-la-la pretty swirly. IT'S MEANT TO BE SIMPLE AND EASY TO READ. I know I'm not going to convince you because you don't want to be convinced. Especially since you think this: [link] is SO much better. (THAT is a white background.)
And I don't get why your criticizing anything when you have contributed nothing to the site. Simply put: You aren't credible. You don't know what you're talking about. I'm done with you.
I've actually argued and discussed my series with another deviant who was able to give me A LOT of good advice, granted they were extremely against my series, they could actually provide something decent. And they were an artist as well.
You're fine!! I'm just hoping they stop trolling and go away. I'm glad you like the style of it! I also know that simple black on white (or white on black) isn't easy on the eyes either. It's like it's a little too contrasting between the light and dark, so I chose colors that are nicer to look at. I think that's also why dA has the green color scheme instead of keeping a white background on text and such.
