@regenjasenplanga: Both your pie and that white thing underneath the chalkboard are out of perspective.

Hey everyone, this was my submission

It was rejected.
Can someone give me an advice on how to improve it?
My idea was making some kind of trademark poster or something like that.

A few points of attention you should fix:
- Up the contrast
- Pick a lightsource
- Fix the perspective difference (legs and body)

Another challenge:
- Dive into the world of body shapes and recreate your zombie so it's body shape looks more natural.

I'm sure that if you fix these points your submission will be approved.
Without me, it's just aweso

In addition to what Club Beuker said, you should also work on a billboard background for this, instead of making it transparent. You said it was an ad, right? Make it look more like that. Look at references for ways you can freshen up the pic.

It looks rather unfinished, and that's probably the reason why they didn't accept. I'll let them say that for sure, though. I'm not one of the judges. However, you're still going to need more work on this if you ever want this to be accepted. No worries, though: you still got about 4 days to work on this.

I tried adding some shadings and little details. But I can't figure out some kind of ad-like object because these are the 14 colors already.

You can always re-use the colors you've already used..

This is my version 3:

Hope you like it! :)

Few questions:
  • How can I make the brick wall in the back look good?
  • How does the pie look?

@regenjasenplanga:
-Maybe add some texture on it

-The pie looks odd to me, like some tech-non-pieish thing
