A Dark Knight Rises
I think reducing three characters to the same template form which doesnt fit the tone of the subject matter, then putting accesories that identify them with all of their details does not constitute minimalism. Minimalism is about taking elements out of a design to make it more beautiful and elegant “less but better”, I think the elements you chose to keep are not essential, and the elements you have taken out were not clutter. This doesnt tell enough of a story for me to care.
I think you are hardly alone though, I’ve seen this misguided approach many times on the web and it’s always lauded as if it were clever by people who mistake simplism for minimalism.
All that said though, your comments on all the other pieces have been very insightful and you have a very respectful way of getting yourself heard as an artist, which is truly admirable.
I dont have any quarrel with you, I just think you’re infatuated with an unfortunate misconception that happens to be very popular and keeps popping up on the net, which I wish people would grow tired of already so we could all get over it and move on to something better.
@Conzeit Troll! Hater!
Or that’s what most people would expect me to answer because you’re neutrally critiquing my art. But against all internet odds, I agree. And thank you for bringing it up. This are not, artistically speaking, minimalist pieces. If you compare this to, let’s say De Stijl or Suprematism pieces, they look cluttered and not minimalistic. Although if I have to choose an art movement I would classify them as constructivist pieces.
And yeah, minimimalism is used now as a fancy term, it barely ressembles the intended use of the term.
About my comments on other pieces, thanks, that’s my intention. I think type of contests strengthens the art & design community and it’s important to mingle.
I’m happy with the results, although getting in the top 10 now seems farfetched, it was fun and knowing someone actually liked it motivates me to keep doing it even more.
Thanks for your critique, and I’m sorry to all our fellow art-wise friends to use the label minimalism as an ad term.
haha..loved the icons!!! If you want, check my entry! Watching the World Burn thanks a lot!!

402 votes my arse! This is really a poor design. Your marketing is amazing however
If you think this is a poor design and just marketing you should see this and this.
About the “poor design” comment. I invite you to give me your critique, not just “poor”. I didn’t try to compete in the same category as illustrations, I tried to make something different. Thanks for the comment anyway. : )
You rock! best of luck
This is creative .. voted
@mrbrownie Ok sorry for the outburst. Those other two links you showed me are hilarious though. I appreciate the effort for something different and thinking about it more, you do have an interesting idea, though I think the style is a bit simple and young. I think a more ‘adult’ stylized feel would have been more suited. The horizontal alignment leaves to much space for me but Good effort.
