Ooookay. I'm entering this challenge lol. "Because I'm stupid." Well, possibly the card says it all? I call myself a failure a lot. And for no reason, I suppose. I mean...I'm kind of a perfectionist, and there's no way to be perfect, so I'm always really hard on myself, and not only that, but it seems like my dad always pressures me to be something I'm not. So I always feel like I'm a failure to him. And it hurts me. I get really depressed about things...so yeah...that's why "I'm stupid." ^^; Cause I feel like I never seem to be good enough.
I used this scan of Tora from Alice Nine.
Sexy, dark, got a gun to his head, come on! Fit the theme I was going for. XD; And as you can see, I went and made it monochromatic/dark again lol. But it isn't black and white...it's more sepia. I did make it all black and white first, then sharpened...fixed the contrast...added the brown lighting on the left side, and then I decided to add the light tan overlay. A couple textures as well. Then the typography...it wasn't easy to see at first, but I fixed it. If it's still hard to see, it says "Failure. For no reason."
