This detailed image took me hours to draw all the individual little shapes that make up the whole image. I'm still a beginner at this and I struggled trying to make a displayable image for this design that truly showed off the amount of detail and effort I put into it. (It also doesn't help when Photoshop crashes half way through!) Please, if you have any constructive criticism or advice, let me know!

I love this art! I just wish there were some way to make the lines stand out more against the black background.

Hey, I'm glad you like it! Yah that's one of the things I struggled with in coming up with the derby image, because when you look at it at more of a full size it stands out a little better. Maybe it would look better in a different color scheme?

Maybe if you just kept it with just the one color of the line design. I'm getting lost with the blue half-tone in the center of it, and I think it makes it difficult to see your main idea.

Still, it's really neat, and I love the effort you put into it!

I respectfully disagree! I love the detail and the line art, and I think the blue halftone brings in the blue and green of the Earth and the recycling theme perfectly.
My only suggestion would be perhaps to decrease the detail between the central Earth image and the outer "chasing arrows" and leave more negative space so the design reads easier from a distance.
I like "as is" though, and I'd buy it if it prints...esp if it ever makes it onto a tote...

Thanks a ton for the feedback! I agree it does seem a little busy doesn't it? This is definitely a design I'll try and rework sometime and hopefully submit again. Thanks for the comment!

I totally see what you're saying! Yah I think it would read better with the arrows being more noticeable especially. Thanks extensively for your feedback and your interest in seeing it printed! I will definitely rework this with all the feedback in mind.
