    Help

    Hi, I'm a new artist and I was hoping to get some creative opinions from other artists. This is not a sales pitch in any way but my artwork is on Ebay, item number 110016986918 and no one seems to like it. I'm just wondering what I could do to better it. I have a lot of fun making these shadow boxes and am looking for critiquing!

    Post an image of it on here. No one will go to EBAY to look at it.

    Honest, I don't try to be an asshole, it just happens!

    It is a shadow box that you can hang.

    I started it at 99 cents just to see if I got any interest.

    It seems very cluttered. None of the pieces fit together/ flow together smoothly.

    In terms of the shadowbox media it doesnt seem very functional. I don't know much about these things so i googled it and it seems that most are used as a kind of decorative border for a picture
    (ex: http://www.webmdm.com/IMAGESBYME/Sha...adow%20Box.jpg)

    The picture on ebay with the blue showing more predominantely is much more appealing than the image you have posted here, but still the arrangement and size of your objects seem out of place/ awkward.

    Mabye if you were to have the tree branches come up from the side and into the corner/top this would act as a more appealing border and move the viewer's eye around the piece better. The moss seems a bit 'cheesy' also. Maybe if it were colored to match the angel or background it would not jump out as much and increase the overall flow.

    Hope this helps

    i tihnk thats a good idea by airrunkle. try to leave a place in the middle so people can put their own pictures in it. and try giving it a theme too. like make one with balloons and cakes and make it like a B-Day box so people can put bday pictures in it. what u think?

    From the photo, the various components do not look very refined and professoinally made, especially the little girl.

    You probably need to improve the quality of the photo also to attract more interest.

    It's also very, unusual, not professional at all, which probably puts people off.

    basically what nafa said.
