Yay...Finally finished my new wall (took 2 weeks and half to finish it ^^)
This wall is dedicated to C.C from Code Geass and her fascinating beauty(maby im the only one fascinated by her beauty XD)
anyway,the extract is fully vectored by me using a scan I found in animepaper.net and took 2 weeks+2 days to fully vectore it(3-5 hours a day) and due to the method I used for vectoring(shape layer)it took lots of time.I had already planned the BG so didnt take lots of time to make.also for BG I used a stock from DA and played with colors and this time used a theme color that match the extract(Green and etc).also used a few buble brushes so the BG wont become boring(of course not too many).overall it took 17/5 days and It was a very tiring but enjoyable work and the hardest work I have done so far^^.
The size is bigger than my usual works since my vectored extract was 3000x2550..so I made it bigger so that widescreen users can use it as well.
I'm ready to hear ur opinions and also helpful advices!!

Sweet. Not a fan of the black border though, and the text doesn't fit. I like it otherwise.

WOW i was praised by you.DMN im happyyyyyy..
hmmmmm...would it be better if I place the test in the upper black border???..I used a black border cause crediting and putting my signature will be easier and less distracting.
does the black border look that bad???

Yeah, add a stroke on the text, it'll look better than a black border, since such borders are evil <_<

Add a stroke (black for sig, something fancy) in the layer settings both for the sig and the text (and move the text quite a bit below), and it'll be done.

I still somehow don't dig the text ...

You've really outdone yourself sal. Poor boy! I'm sorry, but it does need some doing up...

First of, the text is lovely in your last version. it much better than the previous ones. But there's something that bothers me. Change the colour of the text to a sort of beige and lower the opacity. Make it small, and duplicate the text layers and vary their sizes and use a few motion blurs so all the letters are visible. Don't overdo it though. And lower the position of the text. It doesn't need to be up there IMO. That way, people can see the stock bg thing you used.

The scanline'like things all over the wall also seem a bit disturbing to me. See if you can get rid of those. And you could also try stamping the entire thing on a new layer and using some gradient maps. something slightly yellowish and blue would go well with the colours in this wall. You can also stamp the image again (alt+ctrl+shift+E) and use a gaussian blur. then hard light it. It'll give a softer look. Now it looks a bit raw with out the blur. If the extract gets too bright after you apply the blur, just burn a few bits. That should do it ^^

The bubble work looks lovely. I'm guessing you used gradient in difference mode lots of times to get the bg part. Good work overall ^^
