This is my first contribution to Minitokyo: a desktop wallpaper based on Rozen Maiden. I can't seem to remember where I got the character image from, but credit for it goes to whoever I got it from o.O
I think I did pretty well considering this is the first wallpaper I ever made. It took me about an hour to cut the original white background from the logo. Might not have taken so long if my hand wasn't shaking so much <_<. And since I'm no good at drawing cherry blossoms using Photoshop, I became lazy and found some random image on the net that had some, then just stuck it on the wallpaper ^_^a. It doesn't really mix well with the character image, but it's all I could find actually. Some people thought I used a drop shadow effect for the faded section, but actually I used the satin effect on the image, then attached the left side to it.
So... yeah... I'd like some feedback, please.

    You probably got the image from me (I posted this scan on both Animepaper and Minitokyo, but maybe you didn't if you grabbed it from somewhere else) However, the wallpaper has good intentions but you could've worked to pull it off better.

    For instance, the cherry blossoms you added don't mesh with the original scan well at all, they look like they are from two different pictures, which from your description they are. The edges on the text you extraction looks okay, but it could be better... maybe you should have thought about vectoring the title, then it would have a more clean cut look to it.

    Overall the wallpaper isn't very good because you just feathered the scan, still there are still lines though, so even if its not low effort enough there are those lines. You had the right idea, you just need to work on pulling it off better. Maybe you should consider the sandbox.

    Thanks for the criticism, it helps a lot.

    Note 1: About 5-10 minutes after submitting this, I realized that I should've been using rose petals instead of cherry blossoms, hence the anime name "Rozen (German for Rose)" Maiden. I fixed that on my own personal copy of the wallpaper by taking screenshots directly from the anime and cutting out rose petals at the times when Shinku uses them. I don't really see the need of submitting a 2nd version, so I won't bother.

    Note 2: I forgot to mention that this my first time playing with Photoshop (and with ver. 6.0 to boot -_-;;). I also have no idea what vectoring is, let alone how to do it, but I'll probably look it up in a few minutes.

    Anyway, thanks again for the comment.
