Supernatural: Brothers (from ELAC)

New Header and stuff...

In a week or two I'm going to be changing my header... I love the one I have up now but winter will be over soon (thank goodness). Plus I was thinking of having something up there to reflect all areas of my fangirlishness. I was playing around with Photoshop earlier and this was what I came up with:

(click on the thumbnail to enlarge... I think it's a bit large to just post normally here)

I don't think it's too bad but I'm still not 100% happy with it.    Maybe because I don't think everything is blended uniformly enough, or it's not as seemless as it could be.  I still have quite a bit to learn about making graphics. I make small leaps and bounds when it comes to icons and things like that (more of which I need to post soon), but still find things like this to be a challenge.

Is there any advice any of you more experienced artists could offer? I may try again with PSP and see if I can get better results, but I'm not really counting on it.  I'm basically too poor to afford PS CS, so I guess what I have to work with is pretty basic.

(and in case you were wondering, my fangirl areas in order of appearance are: 1. Cam and Vala/Ben Browder and Claudia Black (from Stargate SG-1 and Farscape); 2. Stargate Atlantis; 3. Stargate SG-1; 4. Sam and Daniel/Amanda Tapping and Michael Shanks (from Stargate SG-1); 5. Supernatural (Dean and Sam); and 6. Doctor Who)
