Timeless - Titanic Poster 4 by HectorHimeros

ALRIGHT! It's time for me to give a critique again :headbang: This time around I'm doin this for a very great supporter and TERRIFIC friend :iconsharknoid: It's the least I can do him for all the encouragement and pep talks :iconbadassplz: So Here i go:sprint:

When doing a critique for a project like this, I can't really judge based on the content, since I haven't read the final story yet, so i try to examine if the artist is getting their point across and how well they do it. This is one of those rare exceptions that content matter did encourage me :rofl: Since I have an obsession with the RMS Titanic, the history behind it, and especially the James Cameron Film (and even "A Night To Remember"), I thought this would be a great image to review. :nod:

Based on what I see here, I believe that the artist has done incredible work on selling this idea of a homoerotic story based on the Titanic tragedy. :nod: The placing of the Titanic on the bottom-right side works very well to guide the viewer's eye to cast above. It also feels natural because they're parallel to the ship's angle :nod: The overall image really stands out to me because I would never have even thought about placing a homoerotic aboard the RMS Titanic. The overall idea totally is a shock and surprise as well.

The technique is great. I do have to say the image looks very much like a movie one-sheet. :clap: The elements are blended VERY well and don't have any distracting artifacting either. You obviously took your time in making this a seamless as possible. I also give lots of credit for NOT going to the extreme route and having the models shirtless. If it did have that, it give it a much more "porno" look than this final image has. :laughing:

If anything at all, I'd say that the color palette the only real flaw I could see. :( The choice of using a greenish-yellow tint for the actor's segment is a tad unflattering, but nothing too big either. I would recommend using a more brownish-yellow to give it a vintage SEPIA-look instead. :nod: It would help sell the "Timelessness", so to speak :D

Overall this is great piece and well crafted as well. While the subject matter may not be everyone's tastes, this piece does something very different, in a very bold way. And that is what gets the credit in the end. :clap:
The Artist thought this was FAIR
