Use shadow effects, resolution looks off, find better pictures, tweak the lighting, text blending could use work, and the color motif is wrong.

Just quick observations but I could go on :P

I'm gonna go in the corner. There's something in my eye.

*cries manly tears*


My biggest issues are:
a) I suck at Photoshop.
b) I suck at GIMP more than I suck at Photoshop.
c) I use GIMP because I'm to broke to buy Photoshop and too moral/scared to steal it.
d) GIMP absolutely SUCKS at Stroke.

That's why your covers look awesome and all my posters used Gaussian-blurred drop-shadows. It's not that it's the only thing I like to do, it's that it's the only thing I know how to do. The fact that somebody likes my stuff just amazes me.

Well I've got one on deck that I think is pretty cool... but it only works if certain matches fall certain ways.



...and they almost did, but not really. Since neither came to pass, here's both of them. The original idea...

...and the backup.

EDIT: HAHA DISREGARD THAT I SUCK HOLO'S TAIL

So I made a cover that featured Ushio and talked about how she got beat twice by Taiga in the same day. Only problem with that: Taiga beat AZUSA twice, not Ushio. I'm too lazy to make another one now, but I will eventually. The completely incorrect cover is in the spoiler.
The original postShow
Honestly, I like how this one came out. Spacing's a little iffy, though.

One more point to add: She still has a (tiny) chance at ISML too, which can make her the first to hold all 3 major titles.

I couldn't find it, so I'm wondering if it exists... but I was looking for a picture of Ryuuji holding up Taiga while she gives the peace sign. Anyone ever seen it?

Well, there is this, from episode 17, but no Ryuuji.
