Happy Valentine's Death by cryoclaire Happy Valentine's Death by cryoclaire
Cynics need postcards, too.

So I recently revamped my old Valentine's Day card for print, so I figured i'd enter it into the Valentine's Exchange while I'm at it :D

Vision: You can see the 'vision' portrayed in this valentine's card easily and isn't that hard to understand. Basically it's trying to say that valentine's day is "shallow meaningless commercial holiday" plus having Death and another holding each other solidifies that statement making this a pretty well done 'vision'. 5/5

Originality: This artwork is original in my book (I haven't seen anything like it in the very least.) What I have seen before is a holiday getting called 'shallow' 'meaningless' and 'commercial'. That being said I don't dislike it and I find that is does work quite well within the confines of this piece, so i shall rate this section 4.5/5.

Technique: I love the artwork on this card. The characters look great, and the happy colors mix extremely well with the 'darker' message. I also love the how the artist replaces the original words with 'shallow' 'meaningless' and 'commercial'. Specifically how you are able to see some of the word 'lovely' being covered up by 'meaningless' that's just really cool. So the final rating for technique shall be 5/5.

Impact: The artwork really leaves an impact on me. Mainly because it does sum up the corruption of many holidays nowadays. I think that this piece definitely deserves a 5/5 in the impact department.

Aren't they all, though? The holidays, I mean. Honestly they're fun to use as an excuse to celebrate with my family.

this card is able to properly show how much i hate valentines day to my friends while also making it obvious that i care about them because i'm spamming them with the funniest cards i find because that's what i plan to do when this event starts.
