    as you said, extraction needs work... the background is very basic, its pretty much just a color spectrum, try something a bit more complex, or see if you can find and ocean scene pic to use as a bg

    What program are you using? If Photochop, then I&#39;d run a film grain across that BG and a REAL subtle crosshatch filter. As for the girl: Grainy. Nasty extraction burrs. C&#39;mon, you can fix it. Really easy many, really easy. ^_^ Again, if you are using Photochop, then: Polygon lasso tool. Your lord and savior of the extraction.
    I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather... not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

    Now this, this I fly with pride.

    Hmm, as Xian said, run some filters on the bg, and TAKE SOME TIME TO EXTRACT THE GIRL&#33;&#33;&#33; It&#39;s not as hard as you think, you just have to sit down and take your time&#33; And also as Xian said, the polygon lasso tool man, the polygon lasso tool. It&#39;s saved me maaaany times. Also try to clean up the image of the girl once you&#39;ve finished the extraction, it seems a bit dull in comparison with the background. Boost the saturation, or do an auto color.

    I still like the first bg better because she&#39;s more animeish looking and your generated psp bg fits well with her colours more imo...it just needs a bit more tweaking..

    Hahaha, if you think my advice was invalid, you&#39;re blind...
    Let me translate it to someway you&#39;d understand then:
    It LACKS originality - be more original, THINK more before just throwing random elements to it...
    The extraction needs MUCH more work - it won&#39;t kill you spending a few hours to get an image extracted with perfection...
    Your background is simply a photography... No real work was ever done with it...

    Was I clear enough this time? Or do you need me to put it into "nice" words so that you&#39;ll consider it a helpful advice?
    A short note you&#39;d want to consider: most people improve with my constructive sarcasm...

    im not gonna say extract, dont want you flying off the handle, but i suggest that you do your work in full, after deciding what changes to make and posting when you&#39;ve completely finished the editing, so as not to junk up the threads to much.

    extraction and background are better, but you should fade the char outline though. the sun is too yellowish, try something with orange nuances.

    If I love trains it is probably because they go faster than burials.
    The best thing about weasels is that they don't turn into pickles when they are you.

    Did someone piss on the scan? That&#39;s what it looks like to me... Bad sun, good idea. Extraction STILL NEEDS WORK&#33;&#33;
    I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather... not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

    Now this, this I fly with pride.

    Fix her up 100% before you decide on other things. I find if I do the extraction first and clean it all up will give you more potential to fully work on the bg without badly don extraction blinding creativeity and saves you time from ppl keep on saying fix up the extraction..
