Two different angles, which one do you like? Comments?
I like the top picture better, and can I just say what a big fan I am of your work? I also found you through The Sneeze (while searching for Steve Don't Eat It!) and immediately loved it, and was later excited to learn you're from Indianapolis, which is where I also live. Hooray for hometown art! Keep up the great work. :)
The lower one
I have been loving your website ever since steve put the link up on The Sneeze. Every morning I can't wait to see what new art you have created. I definately love the top one better. It gives it more attitude. I can't wait to see what you put on here next!!
I like the first angle more; it seems to frame things better. Also, in the second, it doesn't look like he's actually flush with the the surface.I love the pictures, and I love the work.
I prefer the second shot, you get a much cleared view of what happened.
Me thinks the first shot is more powerful - the angle from above frames the scene and seems to control it better. Faboo stuff man!
Okay, it took me forever to figure out what was going on in this picture, but when I got it I actually laughed out loud. Awesome!(And I agree with wonderfully misunderstood...in the second picture it's much easier to tell what happened.)
ha! seems about 50-50. I think I might reshoot it from the angle of the first, and try to make the trip clearer. Or something like that! Thanks for the input, and comments!
Just found your blog -- these are brilliant...and hilarious!
Top one for sure. This is really bent stuff...
I like the lighting of the first picture better, but the angle makes it hard to understand what happened. Try re-taking the angle of the second pic, but with different lighting to avoid glare.
The lower picture, way way way better. the yellow is a nice addition. You can read the label on "jerk seasoning" better. You get the trip. And I think the splattered nutmeg 'brain' has way more impact.
The second is way more clear. And I like the crowd of bystanders. The jerk seasoning could be clearer to read. And I totally get the Caribean Jerk :)I think that another angle could still be better. I really love this but the composition could have a little more force and the trip could be a little more obvious.Once again, it is really good!
These are so much FUN!! Wicked!!
The top one!great drama!
I prefer the initial shot, my eye is caught first by the shock of hair and then drawn down to the scene of the crime.
Thanks so much for everyone's input. It's hard for me to "see" my work through someone else's eyes after I've worked on it for a while. Gives me a reason to look forward to senility I guess.
I'm another new fan who got here via The Sneeze. I have to say I like the second one much better. It is easier to read the Jerk label and also easier to see his foot tripping the nutmeg. All in all a better composition, in my opinion. Plus, the other objects look less random and more like gathered witnesses.
I liked the top one best, but did not register what had happened exactly. I knew that the seated spice was responsible, but not exactly how.Love your work and your site too. I stumbled it. When my girlfriend is over at the weekend, I will show her and she will be inspired to create!
I like the top one better for the spotlight that shines on the lost nutmeg. Very imaginative stuff you have here. I a new fan.
I think the first one is better. It feels more like you're stumbling onto the scene, looking from a human perspective. The light is also more fitting for the scene that the second picture.
I like the first one better, it puts the viewer more "in the scene" rather than above it.
