I can't help but think that something is missing from this wall. Any suggestions? I'm open to any and all ideas.

isnt it sha gojyo from gensoumaden saiyuki?

check out his right arm (from your point of view, its on your left) some parts of his arm still needs to be cut

Yep, it's Sha Gojyo from Gensoumaden Saiyuki.
Yeah, I agree with Kelvin about his right arm. And also u should clean around his hair (right part).

Other than that good wp.

You need some text~ Try that =D

and you could add a monotone sephia bg image behind the rope(I hope that this is the right name for... :huh: :P ) like a closed room or another place (that can remind the anime) ;) it would add a 3-d idea

cloud backgrounds only tend to work when it's paired with something else. I like the idea of a background (like a photo) behind the ropes. Maybe a mountain scene? city scene for the rinestone cowboy feel?

Yeah...like pooky said, it needs something more behind the ropes, nice idea and a good start!

Thanks for all of your advice, I greatly appreciate it!

Here is the second version, with a few changes. First of all, I touched up Gojyo, and so he should look a bit cleaner now. Secondly, I put in a whole different background.

I personally think this looks better than my first version, but there could probably be more I could do to it. Any more reccomendations are appreciated.

it's much better. how about making some of the ropes faded to add a 3d look? like, some crisp and some faded?

01-22-2004, 04:13 AM
better now...you could make the bg a little bit lighter

01-22-2004, 06:08 AM
I like the new bg! but yeah, I agree with lighter one, but just a bit!

Third edit. Each individual rope was darkened slightly different from the rest, and the background was made a bit brighter.


01-22-2004, 04:28 PM
Yeah, now seems more realistic!

Good job!

It's looking a lot better. Another thing I would do is t add shadows to the interesecting rope. when two ropes cross, the bottom-most rope should have a little shadow on it b/c of the other rope being on top. Makes sence?

I agree with pooky :^_^:

need some parts to be cut, around his head and chin

Extraction problems:
Face, Hair, Shoulder, Hat

I think u should make the background a little brighter and add shadow on the background on the ropes and the cowboy (to make the cowboy look like he is standing in frount of a picture) and eddit a little around the head and sholders (white is showing a little) and see what u think.............

The shadows would be good. The image still needs to be cleaned up a little: left shoulder (his left) has red on it, between the strands of his bangs still has the original image colors in it, the hat still has some surrounding white, and the back of his hair still has some white. Try that and see how it goes.
