Hey everyone, I am just looking for some feedback in order to improve a recent upload.

13 Hours... by ryuyasha11
13 Hours... by ryuyasha11

it is just about complete, but I have some issues with the blending of the extracted Chihiro picture. It is a bit grainy and looks sort of crappy combined with the rest of the picture. Anyone have suggestions on a better blending? Perhaps I should remove it completely.

I am working on Photoshop CS5. Right now I only have blending filters on the part in question so manual blending is just a step away. Suggestions?

I really like the rest of the image, but if you have suggestions for these other parts as well, please let me know. I like to improve my photoshop skills (as clearly I am not really much of a vector artist, I just put backgrounds together the noobish way with extractions and blending, along with brushes and gradients).

Also could take suggestions on a better quote, although the current one is decent, I would sort of prefer one that would be meaningful even for people who haven't watched the Ef anime, or played/read it. Maybe people can think of a better font for the quote/text? Not a big deal, but if you have a good one feel free.

Oh, and here are the resources used:


Brushes -

some cloud brushes, don't have the links currently cause they are old

Font -
Haiku's Script

Thanks people

While I understand your thirst for improvement upon feedback, we generally encourage members to post in The Sandbox before submitting to the gallery.

Since your item was accepted and was not removed, this thread will be closed, as The Sandbox is for members looking for help on items before the submission process.

My best advice would simply be to find some friends and ask them to offer comments on your work. My other advice would be to ask for help and perform quality control before you submit, so as to make the most of your work before the final stage.
