Hi everyone!
I'm working on a new wall:

What do you think about it?

Credits:
Gavroche scan: here
Background Screencap: here


EDIT:
I vectored Gavroche: http://img841.imageshack.us/img841/698/gavrochevectorcopy2.png
Tell me what you think of it!

Thanks very much!

Wow, nice idea! I think it's really cute :)

One thing you can do that'll improve the wallpaper greatly is to fix the extraction issues. You can kinda see the white outlines of Gavroche where you cut him out of the original scan. He's also a little over-filtered. In the original scan he actually looks pretty detailed and clear but in your wally he seems like he was blurry when enlarged so you added a filter to make him look better. But the result is that he doesn't look quite clear enough. The filter is fine but I think if you find a vector of him or ask someone to vector him (not me >.> can't vector) you'll be able to make him appear clearer.

The background is nice, no suggestions there I guess :) you used the screencap pretty well, just try not to over-filter that one was well. Your character and BG must have the same amount of filteration (is that even a word?) to make them appear blended well.

Hope this helped, you're really doing a great job with it! :D Good luck and have fun with it!

I'm with duhqueen on this one as well. it's a nice blend, I don't think I've ever seen a background such as that blend successfully with another picture with that sort of style. but equally like duhqueen mentioned the little character does stand out far too great but the character is outlined well and is slightly too bright and shiny with comparison of the picture you're trying to blend him with. other than that good job thus far.

Agreed... Gavroche needs a lot of improvements.
I already vectored him (first vector I actually complete!).. Dunno why I didn't that on first place (laziness maybe...)

Tell me what should I change before trying to blend it with the background.
Thank you very much for the comments!

The vector is done very nicely! It might just be my screen but his skin looks a little too pink to me, like a weird shade of it that's a little like purple. But when I move my head to look at it from a different angle the skin-tone looks normal so it might just be the angle or my commy.

The whole idea is nice, and so cuuute xD But it lacks quality. The vector of the little guy is nicely done but if you use it with the bg you already have it will contrast too much since the bg you have now is already too filtered. You have to vector everything to be in unison. :D good luck.

I didn't vector the background but tried to fix it by correcting the edges and so. Does it still look over-filtered? (I think I exaggerated on the lighting...)
I tried to add the same filter I use on the bg to Gavroche, but it didn't stay well. Any ideas to blend him?
Thank you very much for the comments!

I think it looks A LOT better from what you started off with n___n I think in a sense it is over-filtered but not to the point where it's unnecessary. It's filtered where it's needed to make the BG and character blend and I think it looks good. If anything, the BG just looks of lesser quality than the character. Other than that it looks good! :D

It's good, but I think the character stands out too much against the background. And, to me, the styling of the BG doesn't seem to fit with the character all that well - too filtered looking instead of vectored. I like the idea, and I get the look you were trying to get across. However, it just needs more cohesiveness as a whole. One thing the character seems to be missing is lighting to fit the BG - that's one way you could improve it.
