    As the title says . . . I need to know about everyone's opinions on it, and ways to improve would also be much appreciated wherever needed. Thanks in advance.

    Character is from the Devil May Cry series, the hero, Dante (him from DMC3): [sp][​IMG][/sp]

    Make it pan out a bit to show more of Dante. When you do, I'd like to use it as my sig, please!

    Seriously, that is cool Bankai! You should also put something like "Keepin' it stylish!", "Jackpot!", or "Lock and Load!"

    hi banky. overall the composition is empty, you have some ok flow but the background lacks contrast and depth. you need some foreground effects. maybe text? i'm not sure. try some solid c4d shapes first, they'd look good and fill space. also, downsize the entire piece. it'll make it easier for you to finish and the end result will be much purtier

    your colours need blending. i have trouble with it myself and tend to make everything black and white (which i was actually thinking would look really good for your piece) but image adjustments also help a lot. download and install these http://packeranatic.deviantart.com/gallery/26482800#/d2y618m and then take a look at this gradient map tutorial
    [sp][​IMG][/sp]
    play around with the different maps and layer blend modes. there are hints of which to use in the maps, i usually stick to soft light. i hope i halped :/

    I'd love to see how it'll turn out. I hope you can afford to do what Koshka suggestion.

    the only issue with them is that seem to like to delete people's stuff if it violates their terms & conditions.

    I suggest Imgur or ImageFTW. None of them require any sort of special account (or an account at all). Imgur lets you create an account though, there you can keep track/delete/add whatever you want, create groups and such.

    The only con I have with it, is that it sometimes adds a .jpg extension to .png files. But you can simply just change that in the URL and it'll go back to its original quality.

    so should I rate this photobucket picture or what? >.>
    He was on today and didn't update the image. So maybe we should just turn this into a discussion of which site is the best image host....

    The way I am now, I might end up making it worse. I was thinking maybe I could get some help.

    I need to, for example, learn how to upload or bring in a pack of downloaded gradients and/or brushes into Photoshop, and also I need to make my skills better (well, good enough to be sold, at least).

    If that DMC Sig's file is still workable, I could try working on it a bit more, I guess.
