    squidlips vs zacaboo: KID A : Everything in its Right Place

    800*400.
    rotation fine.
    150kb and under.
    keep return time under a week if possible.
    one or two battlers would be dandy.

    Is there a member on FK with the username you! or is this an open invitation? If it's an invite, I'd like to accept. Only because... well I've been itching and am currently listening to Radiohead, incidentally.

    Hey sorry for the late reply, I thought I subscribed. *subscribes* A radiohead battle would be very interesting. I'd love to see a medley of interpretations of their music. If so, would we stick to one album or any of their songs? Are the song predetermined?

    By the way, I haven't commented on your serve yet. The image has quite a mood to it. I like the sort of starry, intergalactic texture that the person seems to be looking out into. Lyrics seem to work well with their placement. I'd say it's a solid piece all around.

    thanks for the crit, i wanted to do alot more but found that any element i was adding was taking away from the composition so it got left quite simple.

    i didn't have any predetermined idea about the songs however that could add an interesting constraint. maybe 5 volleys each and do all of kid a? i was thinking i could even resubmit without the border and we could do a vertical mural battle in sequence of the track listings?

    i'm not completely sold on the blend into the wood, it looks like you wanted to use the rule of thirds but i think cutting it off at the shadow would have solved the problem (of the shadow) and made a cleaner image overall.

    i love the hand and the tree, composition is perfect imho. is that a shark in the tree?! haha.

    only other thing i would have liked to have seen is maybe a bit more colour in the nebula... so it would match my next image!

    just so everyone knows we are sharing stocks and some extra crop, not psd's.

    The color is fantastic. Great use of texture as well, a lot is going on but I feel like you've created a very cohesive image nonetheless. The burning tree is a nice touch. Give me a little time on this next one... I've got a toothache that is almost too distracting to sleep with, let alone photoshop.

    great battle guys. i'm lovin the colors on all of these.

    great theme as well. One of my favorite albums of all time.

    squids #1 - great background. nice use of the sillouette. The text treatment is a bit to be desired. I wouldn't have put the ~ in and the all caps seems a bit loud.

    zac #1 - nice colors man, really. love the tree at the bottom left. The balance seems off due to the boardwalk, i see what you're trying to do, but it seems like the perspective is off. I think it's the shadows more than anything.

    squid #2 - now that's what i call a nice text treatment. this really pops out above the rest.The hairs on the left and right are done nicely with great colors. The color variation really adds a lot of depth which i think you guys have been lacking here in this battle (even though the rest of the image is slightly flat) .

    those are my thoughts so far in short.

    Please keep this going!


    EDIT: and after all that, i just realized this is a vertical mural battle. Sweet idea and now the image transitions make sense.

    Nice work guys! I especially like Zac's last volley. Very well done!

    I seriously can't wait to see the end result once all the songs are complete.

    I personally thought I'd be told that the image was too dark after I posted it, but I'm glad to hear y'all like it.
