Seems a little bleak (dark/somber colors) for a green statement. Kind of a press this button to end the world feeling.

I can't understand what this is for, the only thing that occurs is what SJ said: press button to end world.
However, I feel the button should not have that oval thing, it should be a rectangle. I've never seen it with that oval shape and it feels strange. examples

The image has nothing to do with the 'Green' statement cheesy Although, I do see how you would get this idea.

It's just a random image I made in Photoshop lol

I can barely recognize a turn-off sign, a tree and a cloudy sky. Since I do not know the purpose of the image, this may be perfectly fine. But if clarity is required, I believe it would be better if the individual elements would be more distinct. Maybe using the classic vertical line instead of an ellipse on the top part of the turn-off sign would work better. Another option would be to remove the clouds and replace the tree with a simplified illustration and to use plain blue color on the background.

It is very "Hellish". It reminds me of the Venom album cover for "Possessed".

I just noticed a slight error with the image, on the top "Notch" where its made the sides go squiffy when I rotated it...Ill fix that (Before anybody points it out xD)

I feel like something more interesting can be happening in that relatively blank upper-right corner.


My other comment is that there is a lot of texture going on in a small amount of space.  Perhaps it would be better to fine-tune the texture so the main essence of it is immediately felt with less texture.

I think I am going to remove the tree (Disable those layers) and see where it takes me smiley

I agree there is a whole lot going on, so I shall attempt to tone parts of it down.  Also, I shall see what comes to life in that corner cheesy

That eye will surely give me nightmares tongue
Also, what's that thing on the top, and why is it not chrome like the rest of the [pocketwatch?] ?
And I preferred when everything was contained inside the center, it looked more contained and seemed like we were looking through a glass at something. I'm not a fan of those while lines (also, they seem to symmetrical on the bottom).

Take the easy way out. Add a naked woman. Instant art! Grin

PS - the above one looks really interesting. Looks like some wizards storm amulet. Thmbsup Thmbsup

Print out the image, drop a rounded glass semi-orb over it, get some nice jewelry made for the silver part... Could be a hit at some of those New Age festivals and 'occult' book shops. Especially if you write a little story/spell book to go with it.

I think your along the right lines of where I am going with this.  I think this is going to be the first in the 'series' of some random "Magic" items.  I'm thinking they could be interesting for game images or something...not entirely sure, didn't intend to go as far as I did with it, but I keep opening Photoshop and doing more haha

<Spring day. Medical building. Focus on upper window and dolly-in on lovely dark-haired woman approaching glass. She smiles as she looks lovingly out from window as camera pans across a scenic gardenscape to find a man with a laptop sitting alone beneath a cherry tree in full bloom. Dolly-in on man. He's playing Angry Birds.>

It wasn't always this way...

Life used to be an endless heartache for people like Stephen66515.


<Slow cut back to woman.>

But now...thanks to your generous dollars...there's hope for him and over 20 million other people suffering with an untreated Photoshop jones!

<Faces camera full on with a look of mingled pleading, innocent sexuality, and accusation in her spectacular pale green eyes as she speaks directly to the camera.>

Won't you help us end this suffering?
