sweetdevil Quality Over Quantity

Oh-kay, time to revolutionize the world with a new challenge! (It's my first one, so bear with me.) The theme of this competition is, you guessed it, quality over quantity, so I expect nothing less than quality submissions. The purpose of this competition is to push yourself to your limit, and surpass it. Constantly try new things and learn.
As you can see, this has to do with cards. And, contrary to popular belief, I'm only going to tell you what I don't want to see; if it's not down there, go crazy, do what you want. The only restrictions are the ones you see below.

Here are two spiffy banners to advertise the challenge, if you want to: banner #1, banner #2.

Rules

  • No violently-colored text directly on the (multicolor) image >> example (I just hate it)
  • No using only screencaps/stock images. You must modify them somehow.
  • No filter/texture/brush whoring* unless the end result doesn't produce a seizure.
  • No empty description space. That's why you have descriptions now, people. I want to hear something about the process of making your creation. The no-no’s: abuse of emoticons (TheO or text ones; I want to see at most four in the entire description), abuse of punctuation marks (entire lines of dots…), useless letter multiplying in words ("greeeeaaaat"), abuse of chatspeak, very poor grammar (you might not speak English fluently, but at least make an effort).
  • No entering more than one card.
  • No category limitations. Submit to whichever category you like. This includes non-anime ones.

* abusive use of the aforementioned.
If a card breaks these rules, I will notify the submitter to amend their mistakes. If they don't do so within 4 days starting the day I sent the message, the card will be disqualified.

Prizes
#1:
- Vector/wallpaper request (if you wish)** OR a MyOtaku layout***;
- Entry featured in my Creative Paradox World intro for 5 months (starting from the end of the contest);
- A pwetty TheO gift;
- 10 scans of your choice from Animepaper.net and 10 scans from Minitokyo.net; that makes 20 free scans total.
** You may also request for a black & white manga scan to be vectored/walled, not only colored scans.
*** If you choose this, I'll need some time to see if things have changed since I last made a MyO layout.

#2:
- Wallpaper request (if you wish);
- Entry featured in my Creative Paradox World intro for 3 months (starting from the end of the contest);
- A pwetty TheO gift;
- A forum set (icon + signature, in any dimensions; both or individually, whichever you prefer);
- 7 scans of your choice from Animepaper.net and 7 scans from Minitokyo.net (14 free scans total).

#3:
- An e-card;
- Entry featured in my Creative Paradox World intro for 2 months (starting from the end of the contest);
- A pwetty TheO gift;
- A forum set (icon + signature, in any size; you can also request them individually if you wish);
- 4 scans of your choice from Animepaper.net and 4 scans from Minitokyo.net (8 free scans total).

I'm not promising any fan art prizes because I suck at drawing, in case you were wondering why you didn't see that up there.
All participants will get a super cool banner saying they attended! So you gain something in return for entering, even if you don't make it to the top 3 positions.

You have one month to impress me. Do your best, and good luck to everyone!

EDIT: The challenge is over. See the judging and further info here.
