I am trying to decide either; what to do with these started images to enhance the message being expressed, or what version has better appeal.
The ideas that have two different versions of images have been kept limited with objects for a good reason. The background was created with Art Rage using some of their special effects for canvas. I wanted to create something that did not block out a large percentage of the canvas, the exception being the penguins picture that has a simple white canvas. There does not seem to be any use for special effects canvas unless you see part of it combined with the image since painting over the entire canvas will cover the background. Hopefully I have created a good harmony of simple objects that blend well with the background canvas in the ideas that have two different versions. Along with the subject matter variation in the two different versions, I was wondering how other people might perceive the harmony of the objects working with the special effects background canvas.
Any opinions or comments welcome.
