AP has been gone for quite a while now. Sources to make wallpapers along with the techniques used are far greater and
commonly used than almost 10 years ago, so in short; quality acceptance has gone up a bit throughout the years.
The characters look alright, they are fine. I like that you use some textures. The background though, way too empty.
Then there is kind of blood there that doesn't do much other than kind of ruin what is already there. The text is bd too
and there is nothing else in the wallpaper, no background at all.
Text font is alright. Get rid of the emboss and effects (emboss is horrible), then move it more to the left. Not exactly
in the middle, but it should be close to the characters so it doesn't feel disconnected from the entire peace. Get rid
of those blood splatters, the big one really ruins it. Make the text bleed a little instead as it does not ruin is and
still has the same effect.
Not sure, I think Panda mentioned something about the render's quality (I can't judge this part well, sorry) but having
another look...why is his teary eye darker than the rest? And there seems to be a few jaggies here and there, might be
Add something to the background or add lighting effects (can only be this if well executed) which do make miracles and
does the final touches to any piece.
Well done on cleaning the scan btw.
