- The cutting work is rather "fretty", try to spend more time on the edges of the hairs, with a smaller eraser with the brush --> flow of 50ish% setting.

- The background have the same problem of your signature, the picture seems only cutted in height but not in width, there is a little option in the PS7/cs settings (a little chain between the H and W) that allow you to modify a pic without doing those kind of errors.

- The edges of the pic are too bright, the idea is good, but you should lower the brightness of them a little bit. Try to use the eraser with a very little flow to add some transparency.

- The shadow under the text is ofter used to add a "fake" layer on a picture, or to break the monotony, but in this case its rather out of place because you already have kenshin and kaoru on the higher lever, in opposition with the background, try, if you want, to add a new layer with the text, double the size, add some opacity and put it right behind the other text, with a gradient or a pattern (maybe), of course, that is just my opinion.

- Tip: Never use the magical wand to cut the background from a pic, go with the eraser and a lot of time.

Hope thats help.

hows about now? kauro.jpg

Asura 2003-11-11 17:46

2nd one looks better, but i prefer the blooming sakura in the 1st one.. The 2nd one got too pixely.

I'd actually put Kauro much lower than that...the way her legs are placed.. without a bg..a bit bothersome..

@Naruto@ 2003-11-11 18:31

I still like the fist one better over the second one. :love: It just looks more appealing to me. But I guess it works both ways, depending on what you like better. (And when I mean better, I mean in you opion sort of way). :uhoh:

Mizu Shinobi 2003-11-11 18:55

just following advice of Flash_Squirrel but i guess it didnt work out all too well... maybe i misunderstood
the pick of the sakura is bad to begin with.. anyone got a better one?

Mizu Shinobi 2003-11-11 19:06

hows bout now i changed sakura pic but still dont look that great...

should i try a blur?

Mizu Shinobi 2003-11-11 19:14

hows about now??

Asura 2003-11-11 19:40

too much blur and i think the sakura piccie is placed upside-down. play with curve adjustment.

hi-lite outline is cool when done right, but in this case also messes up kenshin. try expanding his hair. try black outline where he touches with the sakura bg.

Mizu Shinobi 2003-11-11 22:45

if i didn tblur then it looks pixley and its not upside down cause thats the same as the original i think someone took that pick whil they where under the tree ill try changing kenshin a bit but if i make it a black outline i think i might as well take out the outlining all together

well i tryed to fix kenshin but iono if its the best copy3.jpg

Asura 2003-11-11 23:11

what i'd try:
lose the drop shadow...looks cheap.
when i need to cut a picture sharply, i always use the pen/path tool, with feather setting set at either 0 or 1pixel

the sakura bg... try make it as soft or softer than of now, the color doesn't blend in. It's too strong.

and try an underscore between kenshin and kauro text.. might work better than the ampersand (sp??)..and use a different font for the 2 names..

fenrihr 2003-11-12 03:38

hmm..... ......


isn't the scar on the wrong side?

ah well... anycase i say kenshin looks good in that last one. and alot of what asura said .... i personally don't like the font used, but that's a personal thing.... and lighten the bg picture... very sharp contrast in it. but... ah what do i kno...

sassycrab 2003-11-12 12:54

It's been positively fovever since I've seen an episode of Kenshin but... isn't the girl's
name Kaoru (not Kauro)? That's the one major thing that stands out in each piece.
Fenrihr also brings up a good point, Kenshin's scar should be on the left. I don't think
the wallpaper would look too good reversed though, so maybe it should stay as is.

Also, regarding the cherry blossoms in the background... I think the larger branches in
the more recent pics are way too strong. The first pic was better because the emphasis
was on the flowers (which is also handy because they don't need much done to them to
make them look softer). Are you willing to make a background yourself or are you trying
to make this using existing images? If you make your own background I would suggest
a water texture in an ultra light pink with little cutouts of cherry blossom leaves (so they
end up white).

its good but kenshins scar is on the wrong side.

Mizu Shinobi 2003-11-13 21:27

i know its on the wrong side.... but i need him facing the other direction... bah o well ill just switch it round a bit and ill try and make th bg softre and no im pretty sure kauro is spelled corectly unless u can prove me wrong then yea... ok back to work copy.jpg

ps. srry im still learning and i dont know how to use all of the stuff in ps7 and use it well so please forgive thnx
