For the Faith

"For the Faith" is very powerful and beautiful. I love the intensity of the red popping out, the starkness of it. However, I'm not sure I like the mirrored Jesuses, not sure why though. That's just my opinion.
I like your style. The other ones are good as well.

I wanted to add the mirrored jesus because I felt like it was representing each side of our lives (good & bad) and therefor becoming the samething in the 'eyes' of our faith. The general concept is we control our lives, not some big guy ready to hit the 'smite' button

Thnx for the note I just may do that. I kinda built up a habit of saving my stuff at 300dpi and PNG 24 because I do alot of print for my own work (posters and stuff), this way they are all ready to roll if I want them
But it is a very good point. I feel bad for the people with 56k

Thxn for the compliment, I'm glad you like it . But I did notice you said "last one". Did you not like the first two? If not, what didnt you like about them? Not that I mind if you dont like them, I just like to get other peoples opinions, allowing me to improve my work

Im glad my work had an impact on your day . I was wondering if you would mind giving YOUR feed back on the other two? You said its not your style, but what pleases your eye? Color? Lines? Grid?
Ps: Thnx for your reply too, undercv

Blood Splash Democracy:
I somehow like the figure thats standing there and the text near to it.
Though I don't get the name of the work together with the composition.
I always like old newspapers blended trough eachother or on background.
Same with handwritten notes. Though they should add something to the work.
What I can read, doesn't have a meaning I believe?
There are some rough corners and hard contrast in the piece. Try and blend it more to one total piece.
For the Faith:
Title is placed nice. Like it. Like it's really meant for a print or a cover orso.
Mirrored too much. both sides are too identical.
"The general concept is we control our lives, not some big guy ready to hit the 'smite' button :P" I agree, but don't really get the idea out of the picture
Give each side (left/right, bad/good) some themes. the jesus figure solely makes it like a poster for an evangelistic (is that english? ) purpose.
Idea is there, but you can do more with it. If you want to state your vision with the pieces, make sure it's visible in the piece. If you have to explain, the piece ain't clear enough.... or the person is dumb.
(just tell me when I'm dumb people I could be)
So, in general, good goings, but do more with it.

I also like the title but it feels like the subtitle "let us believe it is in us" is kind of an afterthought. Maybe its the type or something but I think it would be awesome if you gave it the same treatment that's everywhere else.
Overall though, I think it's very well done.
