WIP Fringe Poster by ChasingArtwork WIP Fringe Poster by ChasingArtwork
Poster for an upcoming Winnipeg Fringe play done by some friends of mine :)
Still working on this one... so critiques are appreciated.

I'll upload the final piece in a couple weeks, once all the typography has been implemented and artwork has been polished.

The colours amazing! The nighttime scene is beautiful, and the lights I think just make the picture even more beautiful.

And those birds on the wires are ADORABLE. <3

What's the name of this Fringe play? I don't usually do a lot of Fringing, but this poster has peaked my interest. I'd love to go, if I get the chance.

Like everyone else, I LOVE this (and kind of really want to hang it on my wall). But you did state you wanted critiques, so here goes.

I say all this in consideration of it being an advertisement for a play, which changes things. Keep in mind that people are busy rushing around and will give a poster maybe two seconds before moving on. Thus, while again I love the detail, it may be too much. (Of course it may be enough of a draw to keep people looking long enough to read the information, but that's your call and your friends' call and this is my opinion.) So take out half the lines - some windows, sky streaks, etc - simplify it. Make the running silhouettes a larger focal point instead of way down at the bottom. I like the birds and shoes, but again I suggest making them bigger, more obvious.
The sky lightens the lower you go and the buildings are very dark, so I've got a mild concern about the eventual typography - will it be a uniform color and still legible? - but I'm pretty sure you've got that covered.

Anyway, that's my five cents, feel free to ignore! I do hope I helped, though.

good call on the shoes/birds, they will definitely need to be adjusted when the type is implemented. i'm mocking up the type now, no worries it will all be readable :)

hmm, think all the little lines and shapes come together to give the sense of texture rather than creating too much detail, may have to disagree with you on that one :P

all good points tho! really appreciate the feedback.
cheers

Glad to help! I hadn't thought in terms of texture, so I accept your opposing view with even more grace than usual. ; ) You are most welcome.

I love the noir feel to this picture, and the poses the characters are making. Simple and bold. Love it!

Love this pic, a very striking image, I know it'll make a very eye-catching advertisement. I wouldn't normally critique, especially an image I liked so much, but since you asked and since I'am feeling devilish today, I'll give it a go.The one thing I would note is the girl being carried away. I worry that with the low quality print of most posters, and especially if its in B/W, the silhouette of the girl and guy carrying her mightn't be as clear and could confuse the eye, unfortunately I'am not sure what you could do to make her more defined other then change her pose to being carried over his shoulder.
Whew, ok, long one, hope I haven't been too cheeky with my first critique, can't wait to see finished poster!

good call! I think I can add some white highlights to the chefs outline, visually separate her from her captor.

I did try a over-the-shoulder pose, but it really wasn't working.

appreciate the comment!
