the whole thing looks like a mess to me, but you really have to do something with that text.

Yeah, I didnt want to add it, but they insisted that because thats the name of the band, it should be on every band image they have. Go figure.

I intentionally made it very messy.

well, yes, ok...but what i'm saying is that it's not good messy. there's no design aspect to it. there's nothing that catches my eye and it's really kinda boooooring.

and the text is too clean for the messy.

I think it looks kind of cool

it'd be better if you didn't make it out of a picture of nerds

i think it looks like you pulled a snap into photoshop and ran some edge finding filters on it, then randomly grayed in areas without regard to light/shadow.

orrrrr

you pulled a snap into ps, desat-ed it, upped the contrast super high and then proceeded to draw in random outlines.

maybe if you started with a more interesting or less busy photo this process that you have latched onto would work nicer, but as it stands it's too busy for me and doesn't make any sense.

where the fuck is rez? mle? re?!

this picture in two steps.

jack up contrast.

cutout filter.

congrats on making it passable (i guess), but design-wise it's crap. it's the photographic equivalent of taking pictures of your feet.

actually, from an aesthetic perspective it's also incredibly flat. it's what that guy said in the vector thread. "making a picture fake"
it's actualy an ignorant comment in the context of the thread, but it applies here.
there's arent any suggestions, just get a different idea altogether about this... or try drawing it in the style you have in mind so that it doesn't look so lazily processed.

i just plain don't like it. it looks like you just used 2 or maybe 3 pilters in photoshop. I didn't think it needed to be reiterated, glow.
