thanks everyone! sorry for the lack of robots and ghosts. I really like your comments. If I did something too boring (and you have constructive crit on what you'd have done differently), I'm all ears to hear your comments.

I think this battle is a great idea! I support getting the kids involved and sharing through art. The fact that the cage has been jumping like it hasn't been in years is awesome, but there can be no doubt that the steel cage needs new comers as well as old and not just artists, but indivudals of all talent levels who appreciate the art as well, if it is going to stay active. I think that battles like this can draw people in. I would love to here comments from the kids as this battle thread goes on. Who knows, maybe some brainstorming could even influence the process. People need to get excited about whats happening here. Cagers unite! We need more battle threads and more discussion. Sitemail your creative networks and bring them down to the cage.

darabia, I totally agree! thanks for your comments! We'll definitely get the kids involved. The reason I suggested they won't comment in the forums: they have to either purchase credits or be a contributor. While I'd love it if they purchased credits, I am not holding my breath. During this process, I also hope to educate them on properly using/licensing stock and not "borrowing" (stealing) imagery.

I totally didn't even consider that. I thought it was free to create an account on istock. (Because I have all the experience, having created an account once in 2005.) Maybe you could relay comments?

I want to see kids and robots on fire! That is my constructive criticism Pinky! :P
Dawn I always appreciate the twist in your images... great juxtaposition of the graduates and the unemployment!
I especially like how you have Royce worked up over in our match

WTG Kelly! Love where this battle is going. I think the kids are going to find it hard to choose just one design

K-E-L-L-Y, I don't know where I read your reply, but I'm gonna write you here, ok, you are not odd, but a minority ! )), and your blow is really cool!
Was that you, Pink who made this: http://www.onlinegraduateprograms.com/generation-screwed with that closed employment idea? Anyway I could imagine a kind of infographics style in your battle...
Posted Thu Mar 8, 2012 4:39PM
no, Beat, not me, but really fitting I hadn't seen that before - I have been saying these words (without any sources) for a little while now. The infographics idea is brilliant! Thanks for the idea! Maybe not this round, but I will definitely keep it in mind! thank you!
great work Kelly! I love the torch poster and how you used it on the crumbling wall. I am going to go for something a bit more upbeat this round than my last! Also, thanks for your comments.
And, Pete, thanks so much for noticing the twists.

Awesome stuff guys... Im a big fan of this style so its so nice to see it in the cage...

WOW! I almost missed this. Fantastic work already!

My neck is sore from twisting it to the left! Great work from you both
Posted Sat Mar 10, 2012 8:17PM
a little more simplistic this time around. The idea here is The whole world is out there (not just the USA).
Here is the vertical version
Kelly, I didn't make this the larger size, but almost everything is a smart object. I had to flatten a few things to rotate (gradients). Let me know if you want the vertical unflattened version.

Posted Sun Mar 11, 2012 12:15AM
