It looks good but I would put a white outline around the black text - else its difficult to read.
Nice work... but it's kind of busy. And as already said, the letters are kind of hard to read... Maybe cast a shadow or dark outline...
Try a light blue glow behind that black headline and I think youll resolve the legibility issue one time.
Good Background and great idea .. Needs a bit more touches to seem ecxellent
Ratings :- (these may be a bit low but I think it really needs small changes to turn professional)
Background : 8
Text : 7
Blending : 6
Finishing : 8
Overall : 7.5 /10
- Blending : This may be the main issue ..
Just get the blending options of the text right .. I think this may get you clear with or without glow around the text. (just try different blending modes for the text .. Add, Subtract, difference, overlay, burn ..etc)
- Text : I suggext changing the font or adding an effect on the fill of the text like making it a gradient, texture or adding a bevel.. etc
This is my opinion and my suggestions and I may be wrong or saying things which are not improving your work .. It is just an opinion to read.
is that a brush or a premade texture?
I liek the second of the revisions, althoguh I really liked the color of the original. It just didnt work with the text.
I think it quite well except the difficulty of reading the letters.
Getting better, u use ps right?
