Forest. by cachava Forest. by cachava
This was an assignment to take a word and illustrate elements associated with it into letter forms. This was all drawn in vector in Adobe Illustrator CS5.

*EDIT* Thanks for the DD! And all the love :]

The Artist thought this was FAIR
15 out of 18 deviants thought this was fair.

I really like the idea and the colours. They are all well chosen and nothing falls into the background/is lost from the detail.

I adore the moon and clouds for some reason- the style is really lovely there, and adds some personality so it's a unique typography picture, and not...impersonal and stagnant like so many are.

The critique I have is I had to focus really hard to see the letters; too many of the individual letters go out of the letter "constraints" e.g the tree T has three trunks and so it's a bit confusing. The R also isn't very clear because the spider web sinks in to the background a little bit more than the mushroom does. Also the E hasn't got a very defined bottom part, like E does...etc.

I adore the shading and how high contrast it is and the few colours you've used to shade things. Contrasts are something a lot of artists fear but you used them wonderfully here.

Overall I think this is awesome and quirky but it could have done with some adjusting the objects more to look like the letters. And grats on the DD, dude. <3 Keep being awesome!

Browsing through the typography section on Deviantart, with a bunch of people basically just putting up typed quotes, and then finally come across some ACTUAL typography work. Beautiful.

Me gusta como construiste las letras, y tu paleta de colores es interesante, aunque creo que me hubiera gustado con un poco más de contraste, saludos! :)

Really well done, I like the freedom used to represent the letterforms, and the attention to detail! That aside, the colors also really work well together. That the T and R are not that readable are no issue, you never read all the letters anyway!

Good job on some non-standard typography!

thanks a lot! nice comments :] i agree, the letters wouldn't necessarily read by themselves, but i decided it only mattered that it read as a whole. i'm glad that it succeeds in that way. thanks again!
