Hello! I am new to Minted, and was wondering if I could get any feedback for this graphic design? It is an abstracted succulent if that helps :)

welcome to minted! the colors are great + vibrant! it doesn't necessarily scream "succulent" at me, but i see it after reading your description! that's the great thing about abstract, though.. they can be whatever you want them to be! my very first thought was broken glass.

This piece is powerful, it has a lot of movement. My mind immediately thought fireworks or explosion. I can see the succulent now that I read your post. :)

It reminds me of pop art. I feel like I expect to see the work "Pop" or "Bang" in the middle. If it were in all shades of green it might bring a succulent more to mind.

Love the energy in this! As far as feedback, I feel like some of the yellow layers run together because there is no definition between them. Also, be sure to read the submission directions carefully and include the required white border on your submission JPEG.
