Poisonous Invasion

The media, insisting on focusing at the event itself, rather than also analyzing the cause.

My worst collage so far. It just doesn’t work, no matter what I try with it.

As I said on Facebook – the perspective is all off. You should teach yourself about 1 and 2 point perspective as a bare minimum.

What’s wrong:

1) The composition draws the eye to the bottom right corner – the detail towards the planets in the top left might as well not be there.

2) The photographers do not look like they are filming the plants – in fact they look kind of slapped on.

3) The plants also look kind of slapped on, and the perspective is all wrong. I think it’s the angle of the building. If the building was more upright then the rest would work more. At the moment it all looks disjointed. I just roughed out a sketch, and lifting the building to be more upright really improves the composition.


This is the admin speaking...

Thank you for the input! I actually redesigned the whole thing using triangles as the basis. Should be ready in a few days…
