Designer: Nina (OP) / ALEX (EtherFuture)

Design Name: BLACK ROCK SHOOTER - ramune re-edit

Purpose: New repeating background for my YouTube channel

Approx. Perfectionist Timespan: 8-10hrs.

Software: Photoshop CS3

Hardware: Mac Mini (KIHARU)

Inspiration: Love for BLACK ROCK SHOOTER and the song

New techniques done:

    + Doing a Dropshadow gradient effect w/o using Drop Shadow
    + Using a watermark text style as typesetting
    + Satin effect to create effect of shining light w/ shadows cast on their skin
    + Altering RGB Levels on image mask to create a colored outline

Epiphanies:

    + Working with vector images can be difficult to work with if done wrong.
    + Finally understand how to make repeating backgrounds - keep the edges simple.

Foolhearty Sacrifices: Lack of sleep

Fantastic! I'm definitely using the black rock shooter dark theme if this appears in it.

Only criticism is that on the right, the voice actor's face looks just a bit flat. She apparently has no nose.
