    the theme was Going Green / Taking Care of the environment.


    i found this kinda grungy looking tower/power plant. so i anted a scene to be very contrasty, in a desolate area. Planting a flower/plant in the middle of no where as a contrast to the building.

    “It only takes one to start a movement”

    was the title. This was a rush assignment they needed it tomorrow and was given to me today, so im pretty meh about it. What do you guys think?

    the theme was "Going Green" so you did a black and white in the desert?

    Lets see the color version. That being said I think the spout should be pointing towards the plant, not away.

    I focused on the watering pot more than the plant

    It's really not a bad pic but the plant should be the focus. A bigger. more flowrery plant was all that it needs.

    going green also has to do with recycling, so maybe get a symbol of that in your concept....

    put the can on the other side so it points into the canvas better? right now it leads my eye off the right edge, it might help you see the plant better if thats all you have to work with.

    to me "going green" is more about efficiency an renewable products being used. not about botany. but I understand your concept. I just think the large majority has the wrong impression of going green

    i had 8 hours, from assignment to delivery :wtc:

    thanks for all the suggestions guys. You can clearly see why im very disappointed in it.

    8 hour assignments FTL, but the editor did like it. But the more i look at it, i hate it. cant complain now it went to print the day of.

    edit:mistyped numbers
