Choice Between 2 Magic Boxes: Brown or Sepia?



Here's Two versions of something I imagined, designed & drew, then glued together out of clay and antique type-writer parts, then photographed, printed out, drew and painted over the photo of it, one more time. Yeah. i know. Over-worked much?

Regardless of the fact there's no right or wrong answer, I get a lot of help from the insightful feed back you guys provide.

So . . . which one do you prefer, and why?

I like the brown a lot. The sepia is good too, but gives more of the effect of an old Polaroid.

I like the brown. A lot of the detail is lost with the sepia on this piece. Brown all the way.

Hard choice. Both great.
Brown looks more organic.
Sepia may pop more in print?

I like the Brown a little more. Some of the detail gets lost in the Sepia one.

Like others have said, a lot is lost in the sepia. The contrast is stronger in the brown. I do like the warmth of the sepia. If the darks were darker in the sepia, then it would get my vote.

It really depends on what you're looking for. The brown shows off a lot more detail, but I think the sepia has more style, mystery. Especially on the bottom left corner where the details blend with the shading.

Sepia. Some areas of the form are lost, but the form is anatomically nondescript so nothing is lost in the overall image. More is gained in texture and colour unity. Or something like that. Just looks cooler to me.

Brown - It has more Kiethish organic detail

Really depends on the effect you're going for, as others have said. I prefer the sepia because it gives a more aged feel. The details on the brown are so clear, especially with the framing, the stitching, and the lettering, that it looks newer.
