    Okay, before you all start in on O NOES!! LOLOLOLOZ!!!!111!!! It don't mach!!!

    Allow me the benefit of explaination; please.



    You know those days to where the weatherman says that it's going to be a certain percent of rain? You look outside and see not a cloud one in the sky? For gits & shiggles you grab your umbrella JUST IN CASE? Okay, so there you are walking along when it happens. SUDDEN O HOLY CHRIST RAINSTORM! Then, it's over-- just that quickly. The black storm of death that dropped fifteen inches in two seconds is over. Well, not over per se, but abating. The sun is coming out even though it's still raining? Yeah, that's the feel I'm going for on this one. She was caught out in the cataclysmic storm, ran to the nearest shelter even after her umbrella broke and is having a nice little laugh about it. Of course, now that she's got shelter, the storm is letting up.


    Are you following me? Re-read over that just in case before you click on the wallpaper.

    Now then, are you sure you're following me? Good, what needs to be fixed?
    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.

    In case you're wondering what all I did-- the original images.

    The bus stop:
    I want to die peacefully in my sleep like my grandfather... not screaming and yelling like the passengers in his car.

    I dun like real life photography with Anime. But I like teh concept!! I'm not so very good at critiquing. But I like the concept. The way the girl general looks makes me understand that she just came into shelter from the rain. Which is exactly what you said. :^_^: I think it's good.

    I just thought to myself. Maybe you could try to blur up the girl in the same fashion as the background to make them match more? XD

    ok, the real/anime blend is just... well, in my opinion it just really isnt working, theres an extreme contrast between the two, another problem... shes soaking and theres actually still quite a bit of rain coming down but nothing else is wet, very peculiar weather id say that only gets people wet :P j/k. and the bg itself even in its contrast just gives the whole picture that feeling of being extremely busy.

    if your doing that to infer that i didnt read over and understand your original explanation of the wallpaper your wrong, maybe you dont understand what im saying... no matter what amount of rain there is, its gonna show up on the sidewalk and buildings whereas besides the girl absolutely nothing in the picture looks wet or as if theres been any rain at all.

    Maybe the area's she's in is just now starting to rain? Notice that the sun IS out. Dunno about you, but I noticed that when the sun is out it tends to stay drier for some odd reason. *shrug* Eh, still gonna tweak on this some more.

    I <3 the concept, but the background just isn&#39;t working. Great extraction onthe character, and also great job on the rain. But the background doesn&#39;t fit. I think this could be a reeaaallllly nice wallie if the background is changed&#33; Other than that, it&#39;s perfect.

    The concept is great but the realization of it is really bad.
    The bg, it doesn&#39;t look right it&#39;s too ... strange ..., also the rain, it&#39;s too sharp, I&#39;ve never seen such rain in my life (neither in anime), everything is so unatural.

    I like the rain effect. Maybe you should add a small puddle of where she is standing..I mean to make it a little convincing that she is really really wet even though she had an unbrella. ^^ By the way I love the side walk and the way the curb is on that angle and you have your name there flatten. Looks cool. I like the wallpaper too.

    I have a small puddle under her. Maybe I should bring out the opacity some more? Or... better yet, what should I do to make it look like a puddle?

    Also, to everyone else-- I&#39;m not trying to be rude, and thanks for the critiques, but... The BG doesn&#39;t do it for y&#39;all, then what do you suggest? I mean, seriously. The fact that she&#39;s holding an umbrella tells me that&#39;s she&#39;s coming in out of the rain. I could really use some ideas instead of just saying it&#39;s not any good. Again. I&#39;m not trying to be rude here but a little feedback other than it doesn&#39;t work would be greatly appreciated.

    Anyway, esca, should I bring out the puddle under her some more, and what do you think I should do to make it look more like a puddle?

    Okay, I&#39;ve used the burn brush on the BG and tried to make the concrete look as wet as possible.

    Looks bad to me. It&#39;s a brave attempt I must admit but it doesn&#39;t look good to me at all. I&#39;d explain more in detail but I gotta log out of my school computer in 5 minutes.

    the idea is great, but the real life bg does not fit her - as someone said, extreme contrast. its too sharp and of low quality :&#092; i can only suggest to play around with brush stroke/artistic filters in PS (not just one, several on diff. layers) to make the bg more drawing-like.


    In need of a dose of ARIA.
    In need of a ticket to Neo-Venezia.

    The puddle looks ok but still it seems rather like blue water..than clear water know what I mean? It should look transparent with the concrete but without making it look like a shadow. This is hard..I&#39;ve never made clear water before so I can&#39;t really help you there.
