Hey, how's this one. I used an HQ pic for this, but part of the moon was missing, so I had to redo that part. It might look a little weird but I tried :P

01-29-2004, 10:59 AM
nice. i like it, except i'm not really sure about the flowers in the top left.

other than that it's really good.

01-29-2004, 11:04 AM
Yeah, I'm also not sure about the flowers.
Maybe try to add some border to the baner.

PS. U redid preaty well the mising part of the moon!

:^_^: Ok, here's a version without the flowers, it looks kinda plain to me though without it. Well whatdya think?

01-29-2004, 11:24 AM
Um, I don't think the pic is really working well with the background. The moon is behind her but the sakura petals are casting a shadow on her... How about a day approach? XD

01-29-2004, 11:36 AM
Lol I can't really fix the shadow, that's how it came. Maybe it looks weird cause I flipped the pic. I'll play around with stuff and see how it works out.

I checked the pic. The light seems to be coming from another source than the moon here. Hmmm/

Um, I mean day approach so that the shadows would then be "theoretically" correct ^.^ Unless what she's leaning on is a lamplight in a park or something

Ok I took out the moon, and played around with the background a bit. Which one do you think the BG is better suited on?

This one:

01-29-2004, 03:05 PM
Or this one? I don't think it fits too well. Maybe I'll tihnk of something later....

01-29-2004, 03:15 PM
Prefer the 3rd one but still the bg dosn't fit well with the char.

01-29-2004, 03:39 PM
Whoa just had an idea haha. I think it fits better than the other 2 but tell me whatcha think.

01-29-2004, 03:41 PM
5th=best so far, very cool and fitting i think

01-29-2004, 03:43 PM
Yeah, I agree, the last is the best so far!

01-29-2004, 03:46 PM
So anything else to change or is that good? ^^

01-29-2004, 05:02 PM
I like your more recent one. The only issue i see is that the text bar's doesn't fit the wall. Yes, it may match the cherry blossoms, but those arent the main color of the wallpaper. I would go with a hue from her dress or the wall.

01-29-2004, 05:45 PM
Ok, I used the blue from the background, is that better?

Edit: lightened the bar

Edit: fixed the jagged diagonals

Edit: fixed some other jagged lines and added shadows to the petals in front of the bar

01-29-2004, 05:49 PM
Sup blueboi? The blue is a better fit than the pink you had, but I'd say that it might be a tad too... harsh. Try a softer blue maybe?

01-29-2004, 05:50 PM
It's only my opinion or the bar is a bit jagged?

01-29-2004, 09:19 PM
Argh, if it is too jagged, I can&#39;t fix it very well. The blur just makes it worse, and cutting parts of it makes it even more jagged >_< Well I tried, posted it up there.

01-30-2004, 03:39 AM
Yeah, now seems better.
Maybe try to add some borders to the bar (with diferent color, maybe dark blue) and see how it is.

But it&#39;s also great as it is&#33;

01-30-2004, 05:06 PM
Hmm looks good in its latest incarnation, I think a little thing that would add alot to it is have those sakura petals that are infront of the bar make them cast a shadow on the bar like how the petals on the char pic are casting a shadow, some small extraction stuff on her bow some parts on the edge aswell. GJ though.

01-30-2004, 06:46 PM
Where are the extraction problems? If you mean the little pieces:

Right ribbon : The yellow is her hair.

Left ribbon : There&#39;s 2 sakura petals right behind that ribbon so it may look like there&#39;s a bit there but there&#39;s not >_<

I don&#39;t see what else, I cleaned up a few jaggedy lines on the edges but nothing else I could pick out.

01-31-2004, 12:40 AM
theres a tiny tiny bit of white on the middle of the side of the left ribbon:P
