Yeah, I know its a cardinal sin for a seasoned anime watcher to like DBZ. But y`know, I like it. Anyhow, the UA theme this time(rather shoddily made by me, Ill admit) was to make a wall based around the song title: "Life is not tried it is merely survived when you're standing outside the fire" - Garth Brooks - Standing Outside the Fire

Also was to use a scan that didnt receive much if any favs around MT, or isnt here at all.

Considering the DBZ section, this wasnt too hard for me. Why I choose this, well..basically its the Saiyan ethos. You practically never see them going off and running. Its always 'Ok, dont matter how big and bad, we kick their a$$'. They live life, going through their trials and tribulations, and never backing down.

I rather like that. So bear with, and enjoy!

Update: Vectored the image, redid the fonts. Well..lets see how this does.

    from afar the only thing that urks me is the font xp
    i would try something more scritchy scratchy to look like the scan rather than bold and with clean lines XD

    everything else is really good... the brushwork as always is fantastic :D

    Nice interpretation of the song lines (however you did pick it) and lots of fiery colours around the often dead Goku. Nicely worked DBZ wall Teryon -resists urge to quote a lame DBZ line-. I've always liked this picture of Goku, keep up the good work.

    Agree with kuroimisa, the rext need more work. It looks as though you cut and pasted in the text rather than just making a new layer on top of the original image just for the text it self.

    Added to favs :D !

    ps - You are not alone, just don't like the English dubbed verison.

    i'd have to agree with musa, the font has to change, and i can notice a few jaggies on the scan. you should of taken your time and vectored it, doesnt look to be that hard. ^^
    good luck. ^^

    While the new font effects look cool, I think that the font itself doesn't suit the theme. Why do you think there is such a wide variety of fonts available? The font you use in a wallpaper reflects what you're saying in the wallpaper, and a scripty font like that just seems too pansy to reflect a Super Saiyan ready to give you the pounding of a lifetime! I'd use a font with an oriental flair to it that uses all capitals. That would reflect the wall better. I can't really say too much about the main image... it doesn't look terrible, but the pixelated lines are a turn-off in aesthetics

    I think it is perfectly okay for a seasoned anime fan to watch and like DBZ. DBZ is a great show, and I find anyone who doesn't acknowledge that fact isn't a seasoned anime fan. You don't have to like it to admit it is a great show. As for the wall, I love it. Strangely enough the reference to Garth Brooks suits it quite well. The colors all work, and it has a powerful emotion that it conveys. 5/5. Thanks for sharing, and + fav.
