Yay splatters! I wanted to make something music-related for this challenge=) I went for a cool and graffiti-ish look on the whole background, I hope you think I succeeded:3

I started out with a purple gradient and the big black letters in the background, and used two textures on them!^_^ This one (by hyenacub-stock on DA) for the background, and another one (by Enchantedgal-Stock on DA) on the letters:3

Then I started looking for a foreground picture - wanted to use a Vocaloid one at first, but couldn't find one that would be easy to extract the character fromXD So I went with this one from K-ON! ^^ Changed the hues to purple-ish, then made some use of the brush in Overlay mode on some parts^^

The music notes kinda came as an afterthought, I couldn't find any brushes on DA that were compatible with my ancient version of Photoshop, so I extracted them from this image and played around with them a little^^

Feedback is VERY much appreciated!

Time taken: around 3 hours
Done in: PS 6.0 with pen tablet
