Neither? It's a subjective piece of illustration.
Doesn't "subjective" mean I get to decide how I feel about it?
If you wanna make illustratornews.co sure
man the list-blog spammers will love him
I think it's alright. My main complaint is that my eye is drawn away from him and toward the background, since it's so much more complex. They put him in the foreground, extremely large, so I assume they want him to be the focus of the image, but it's just not working right now. I'd have preferred if they would have given his face a bit more detail and the background a bit less.
Other than that, it's well done. Colors are solid, it's easy to see that it's supposed to be Elon, etc. Just needs a bit more separation between foreground and background.
The image is balanced overall because the larger part of the image - the foreground - is less complex. Your eye is drawn away from him, yes, but your eye is focused on him first. After you focus on the man, you moved away to focus on what is behind the man.
I'd say the illustrator has done a terrific job of this.
I would not have known that was his face if it weren't for this caption. But I kind of like how the copy of the site has negative margins. It's weird but I like it
I didn't recognise him :/
I think it could be much much flater...
Objective! Leading the witness!
Looks like a poor rip off of Stan Chow's style http://www.thestanleychowprintshop.com/
