This is actually my first time putting something in the Sandbox, but I want this to be "good" soooo *shrug* thought I'd see if this would help.

First off I just recently finished my KIBA vector of Amil Gaoul and Zed =O

In all honesty, due to the nature of the series and characters I'd like a background behind them that's sky related. I've gone over and over the web trying to find tutorials on good sky/cloud images. The downfall is 1. I only have PSP8 to work with and 2. my expectations are high. The two images below are the type of sky/cloud I'm looking for... the "sparkly" awesome type xD I think it'd go well behind the two of them. But of course I don't want to just take someone else's image and use it .__. that'd be just... yeaaa... haha... no.

What's I've made/attempted towards a sky background so it can be seen with them for a better idea.

Finally, this is what I already have and been playing around with. Seems easier to go with dark than something light... but I think if I could get a good background behind them that's light they'd be well off... Hm. Currently the third one below is my fav... but I dunno, it almost seems lacking as if it either has too much or the rays just don't match x___X;; can't decide..

So in the end, basically I'm askin' what yall think would go well behind Amil Gaoul and Zed, if it's the sky, IS there a tutorial I could look at for guidance or should I just go for my best (which isn't that much haha with sky-type backgrounds)? *shrug* honestly any feedback on ideas for the background are nice. Just, again, I'm limited to PSP8 and my background experiences are basically multilayers with a different brush on each and then mix, matchin', and lightenin' xD Worst case I'll just submit as a vector and hope someone else makes a wallie for it XDDD haha <3

not sure about the sky ... doesnt really match the mood ...
the 2nd darker one, I really really like - it really puts the focus on the glowing hand thingee ... it gives the viewer a resting spot, very well done

One thing that can go well in the BG is a relic symbol. If you can vector some archaic symbols and place it behind them I think that would be a better theme for it and then make the symbol go kinda relic gold.

Well since I didn't really know what those were, I went and looked em up but they weren't that many showing up, and the ones that did were so different from each other that I just wasn't sure about which were archaic symbols or not >__<;; the only reoccuring type of relic symbol was the cross and although I don't mind vectoring and using that, I don't know if it stays true to the series which only mentions God for this one race we only see once XD

However, I think I'll true to find symbols for "freedom" since that's kinda of what the main character strives for and vector it into the background, thanks for the idea/suggestion and help ^-^

@Seoulsketch - thanks for liking it. If the symbol thing works out, I'll most like use that one ya like and throw the symbol into the great big open space in the middle and hopefully that'll make it seem less... to me, dull XD I'll try to keep in mind that the focus on the hand seems to be liked =) thanks for the feedback

Seeing as I won't get to work on this till probably Thursday, if there are any other feedback/help/advice I could still take it and use it ^___^ Thanks all <3

I haven't watched the show. But the thing on his arm, is all solidly one color. Wouldn't have shade in the same place as the arm that is is wrapped around?

Ah =O thanks for pointing that out, and since its not its full size, ya cant see, but its not actually one solid color (but close to it haha). I'll be sure to change that in the vector, thanks =)
