I don't usually post 'word' tattoos anymore, as I do dozens on a regular basis.

But being a Harry Potter fan, I really enjoyed the cuteness of this one, especially as the client took paw prints from her kitty for me to add to it.

This wallpaper is going to be a challenge entry on theOtaku.com, but before I submit it there, I feel like I need some feedback...:3 (If you want to see what the challenge is about: [link]) You'd really help me a lot!:3

And this is the description I'd put with the wallie there...

~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

How this wallpaper came about:
I was reading HP and the Deathly Hallows, again, so that was my first inspiration. Then I was also reading stuff about HP spells and artefacts on Wikipedia (don't ask why, I don't even rememberXD) and then I saw this picture of the Deathly Hallows sign:3 That's when I really knew what I was going to do^^ Then I went looking for the right pictures of HP and Voldemort (the second one was hard to findXD) and I managed to find good quality pictures, so that was great^^

Editing and finishing touches:
- Extracting the pictures from their original images
- I used a texture on Voldemort
- Texture on 'Deathy Hallows' (text consists of two layers)
- Various effects on DH sign, including Drop shadow and a lighting effect
- Tried a veriety of filters and textures on DH sign, but eventually made some kinda texture thing using the dodge tool:3
- Some touching up on HP (including some blurring here and there) + hue/saturation - I changed the picture to a more greenish hue (it was blue at first). Initially, I had a green background and tried to fit Harry's colours to those of the bg, but in the end I adapted the bg to HP's colours:3
- Some touching up on Voldemort
- Big change on Dark Mark (which came rather as an afterthought, but took a lot of time to get it rightXD) - hue/saturation, colour overlay, creating more depth using burn tool (image wasn't very 'visible' in the general composition)

The hardest things:
- Finding just the right pictures
- The composition of all the different pieces of text. First I typed all the words and phrases that, in my opinion, link directly to the DH, and then I had to put them into appropriate positionsXD At the end of the process, I also changed the size of some words, made them somewhat bigger or smaller. (Note: the positioning and size of most words is significant and symbolic in a way)
- Keeping all the images visible, and all the text readable (I made HP [i]slightly[/i] less opaque so you can read ALL the text:3)

Unusual for me:
- I started out making the 1920x1200 resolution wallie (that was part of the challenge, so I figured I'd better start off by making that one:P)
- I used lots of textures (I NEVER do!)
- I made use of opacity a couple of times
- I used several filters (again, I never do that!)
- I messed around a lot with hue/saturation/colour overlays etc.
- Also, I placed some effects on the DH sign; I didn't even know they were available in PS before I made this wallie!xD

Done in: PS 6.0, with pen tablet
Time taken: probably about 6-7 hours in all
Original pictures:

Voldemort - [link]
Deathly Hallows sign - [link]
Dark Mark - [link]
Brushes and textures all standard in PS
