uhh, I'll try. Perhaps I'll ask Patchy.

Made sure the leaves aren't cut, and used real transparency this time

@MK
I prefer v8, the v9 is too crowded for my tastes :x and pink feels out of place...
right side (hand and guitar part) looks a bit blurred, but it looks good that way

And I feel in general like either one needs something. What could it be? I mean, besides blending.
Also if you put a faint glow edge around the stock itll cover some of the rough edges and make it look better against the background. This tut helps with Outer Glow.

@milan kyuubi: v8 all the way, pink would fit a spring theme but not really a autumn one.

Kinda stumped on text as nothing seems to fit very well.

V3


Thinking of just removing the text altogether.

Touhou I really love this image and thought about using it myself, but figured I'd run into the same problem your sig is having. It's too close to the original source, almost a crop. The eye color has been changed and everything clarified and more saturated, but I don't feel you've deviated from the source enough. Were you planning on adding anything else?

I also agree with you that the text feels out of place as it is. Because the background is so pretty, it's hard to fit it in a place where you'd naturally put it, somewhere on the left middle.

Spoiler for original wall:

Spoiler for original wall:
I dunno yet =/ I have a few ideas for a background but I'm not sure they'd be any better than the current one.

I probably will rework it in the end as I think its a little empty without any text and its pretty difficult to get any to fit as is.

I really like the character so I want to stick with it soooo suggestions anyone ? =]

^ Well, if it were me, I'd probably just add a c4d/fractal in there and then blur the bg a bit to create some depth and use the burn tool for shadows and the sides.

@ Drake, it's a good background, you just need to rework the colors, maybe by adding some contrast or changing the hue or saturation.

The leafs are important but don't underestimate the mountains behind.

@Drake
the text feels a bit out of place, but if you remove it will the lower left corner not feel empty?
it could use more work, for example changing the shape into a more unique shape.

I like the autumn text, however the sotm text looks out of place. I would either get rid of it or try a different font. Also, it seems kind of monotone to me. Maybe add a bit of different colors?
