    Default Just can't seem to get it right!

    I've been struggling on this w/p for a few days now and for some reason I can't seem to get it to my liking. I wanted it to just be something simple, but that isn't the case now. I think I've gone blind with the cutting of the image. It took quite a while to cut. But I'm just not satisfied with the cut. Anyone here care to give some advice to this poor dragon?

    Here's the first edit:

    And this would be the second edit:

    The colours do not work, the character just sticks out of the background like it doesn't belong there. Text is kind of hard to read - font itself is OK, but the positioning is kinda boring and the red outlining on black text does not look that well. The texture in the 2nd revision makes the background a bit better, but another image of the character is only distracting.
    Try playing around with photo stocks/textures, consider using tools like this one to generate a nice colour scheme for the background.


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

    Muzzy's right there. It's all unfitting and boring. try to use black and white there with some white text. Play with the fonts some more and also character placement.

    Collab with Unli~ Isn't he awesome??

    They are indeed unfitting and boring and does not suit the character.Although the character is eye catching 'cus of the colours.And as Karuto said you should try black and white or maybe stick to the colour scheme of the character and have better text

    Scraped that b/g completely and came up with this for a b/g that matched what was going on with him a bit better.

    Getting closer...

    But don't bevel/Emboss the extract. I used to do that, and it gave a horrible effect. Trust me there. And the whole theme of your wall needs to be darker. That grey stuff won't work. I told you, use a black bg and convert everything including the extract into black and white. Then add the text with an appropriate font on top of the extract or something.

    Try it...experiment a little more. Thinking out of the box never hurt anone before ^^

    Is that a texture??
    And yes once again I agree with Karo-chan..
    With the whole black bg and better font ect.
    And yeah I much preffer this new than the other two...
    Why not maybe download some grunge brushes??
    I think it will make your wall more better and keep
    the splatter brush you have on your wall, since the
    character has blood.
    Anyway well done on your 3rd attempt ^^

    Agree with ichigo and karuto.
    maybe splash of blood will be the answer.
    the bg texture need to be crisp and darker, and try to match the color with the character.

    I think now that it's too dark
    but it's ok i think your nearly there ^^
    just this time make it a little bit lighter
    or the character even a bit darker
    BUT NOT TOO DARK THOUGH
    OTHERWISE THE PEOPLE WILL NOT SEE
    THE CHARACTER
