Well I finally got around to making a new wall, and I am pretty pleased with the result.

Okay so basically I used a stock for the background, edited and enhanced some aspects and added my own stuff. Added a couple gradients, and hue/saturations, photo filter, and all those other effects. Took me a while to do the extraction, but I think I did a nice job. Then I added a texture and lowered the opacity a bit to get the effect that can be seen in the wall. After I added some filters to give it a painted sort of look, then I added the text.

Some info:

Scan from: Shining Tears Visual Collection
Texture from: http://www.desktopanime.com/index.php
Font used: Easy Street EPS
Layers: 22+
Time taken: 7+ hours

Please be sure to leave comments/criticisms, and, of course favs, if you wish. (Even if you don't, lol, jk).

Thank you for your time!

    i like it because the scan has incorporated proper shading and color coordination with the background. but it's kinda of a boo boo to realize that the scan and the bg don't jive: fantasy characters pasted on a modern day road. but i like the filtering; i just wished that the characters were filtered too to add uniformity. other than that, good job. :)

    Nice work getting the stock photo to have a similar feel as the characters. I enjoy your use of neutral colors throughout too, though the becomes hidden in the pattern of the wall's light and dark areas.
