Could I get your opinions on these? Should I do the others in a similar style?
I like it but why is only the "A" blue?

Much better ^^ and did you put the text like that (some parts of them are cut by the left edge) on purpose? if yes, then let it be

Yup. I knew at least one person would like that effect... Keeps it "rough".

Very nice, blaze! I already know the secret but I won't spoil it for anyone who may not know. It's certainly a strange coincidence or intention though^^

I am the only one out of this loop

EDIT: I think I know what it is but I'm sure I'm wrong. What I'm thinking is so obscure that it cant be right lol

You may. Do you understand the meaning behind the coloured letters now?

I figured I might as well do these ones, but I'm having trouble with the positioning. Any suggestions? Or should I just shrink the width?



Notes:
1. Shrinking the main text (i.e. Character name & "K-ON!" to anything lower than 24pt will make it look bad. (Character's name is currently at 30)
2. Picture must stay on the right side, patch-up using gradients are a no-no.

Hmm.. you mean that what to do with the plain areas, right? shrinking the width might work, but I think you could fill them with something... that I don't know yet *Searching*

EDIT:
I think maybe there are 2 things you could do aside from shrinking the width:
- Add some colorful "marbles" -->> The visual theme of the 1st character song covers seems to be quite colorful. If you see the covers again, the girls are wearing colorful marble-like accessories. The colors themselves seems to be their own colors: red, blue, yellow, pink, green. The fonts used in the covers (the "K-ON! character image songs") are colored that way too.

- Add some white areas on the top and bottom like this -->> I think this one is better choice for the uniformity of all the characters (not only Nodoka and Ui). If you go for this, then you need to change the font color for the character songs titles. (ex: Mio's "Heart Goes Boom" font color into blue, Yui's songs are red, etc.)

Those are my opinions

Thanks for your suggestions...
If you are noticing something is off in this one, it's because removing text from a picture is extremely difficult. (I must have cursed many times trying.)

Looks great

Hmm, I don't see anything off here but yeah, removing texts are difficult indeed. I'd rather recreate them instead, lol

There's something about that K-ON! logo... I personally thought that it should be removed because the size is kinda big and it passes through the white area. But in the other hand, the K-ON! logo is needed to stay true to the theme. The size could be shrinked for sure but that would make it unreadable
^ Those are just my personal opinion, though You decide what's best.

and it seems that Ui is the only one aligned to the left, huh? ^^; I think Ritsu and Azusa could also be aligned to the left side too considering that their pictures are quite centered on the original covers.

You'll get used to it, don't worry
Looking nice. So you increased the height of the white areas for fitting the K-ON! logo
