I lost your original critique and am glad I did, because, in the few days since then, you've improved so much. Your image quality especially has gone up a lot. Hitting your models with the sharpening brush and adding a bit more contrast to them will give that even more of a boost. I'm glad to see you adding more stocks and texture in as well, because your flow overall is a lot better. Keep working on your model hierarchy though. They're still kind of roughly same-height, same-size, so the focus isn't very strong. Giving them a more significant size different and moving your text closer to just one model will make that stronger. That will also help with the flow and keep the eye from going off the canvas. Your colorizations are pretty clean. The skin is still a bit too yellow. I'm not sure what method you do to do yours, but adding a soft light of pink in with it will help. Try making the background a different color as well. Making the background blue or purple will help it look less yellow, or, if it's too pink, use a green. Keep up the amazing work, because you're improving at lightning speed.

You're getting closer. The cleanup put you up almost half a point, but there are still some technical things and versatility to work on before you get into the highest ranks. Your text could be experimented more and experimented less. Sometimes it's too far away from your focus which throws off the focus and flow for the piece, so, even though it may seem typical, just having it closer to the focal model will help strengthen a lot of things at once. As far as experimenting more though, I'd love to see you work in more fonts, especially your smaller ones, as well as more sizes and arrangements because just changing up the fonts so you have some script ones or having your text curve every now and then is something small that will make your gallery as a whole look more versatile. Changing up your fonts to not always just be bold, block fonts will also help pull in more emotion to your pieces. Right now, everything is very aesthetic, which there's nothing wrong with, but having a balance between that and more story-forward pieces will help connect the text to your models more. You've got a good balance of stock to texture pieces. There's also a good mix between hard and soft and dark and light. Try to work in a couple of things with more negative space to add even more variety. Adding some things that are more monotone would be a good boost as well. Having one too many colors in a graphic can make it get busy fast, so either dialing back a color in the pieces or having fewer textures in ones that are brighter will keep that from happening. Just keep on adding more. Your colorizations are phenomenal, and your model placements are always daring. I think you just need to get out of your comfort zone, because versatility throughout your gallery is one of the most important have to reach the highest ranks.

The biggest thing to improve upon is your text. Really make sure that the font style matches the theme or mood of the graphic. It does sometimes but not always. Also, keep working on your text placement. It is definitely getting better. Just make sure not to put it too far away from the focus or near the edge of the graphic, especially in your banners. It's so much better in your newer pieces. Actually, everything is improving so much, especially your image quality, so keep it up. You are very, very close to the next level. <3
