    Breaker, breaker....

    Couldn't decide whether I liked the dark version or the light version better so i'm posting both and hopefully you guys and gals can help me make up my mind.

    Hi Juz,
    What a pleasant surprise, I like both variants, I always (almost) like images where the contrast is respected, in both of your paintings you have a
    good contrast between colors, excellent design,
    depending on where You use it they are both good;
    I also like your clever signature,
    it reminds me the Chinese paintings signature done with a seal , nice

    I accept critics only from friends,
    how about You ?

    I'm all for the darker background one. Overall it reads better in my opinion because the truck reads better. However, I can certainly see cases when you would use the lighter one.

    All a matter of context. But side by side, I think the darker one shows off that really cool graphic stuff to better effect.

    If you really want to experiment, you may want to do a night time one with headlights on.

    Anyway, it's really effective and feels well suited for a graphic novel.

    I absolutely love this tonal, graphical marvel and I'd give a preference to the first version.

    I'm liking the light one a bit better, but both are effective. Nice style!

    I prefer the first version as it stands out more clearly but both are really excellent
