Diamond In The Rough Poster #2 by Spaztique Diamond In The Rough Poster #2 by Spaztique
200th Walfas-related Deviation, I believe.

Here's an updated poster for my movie, Diamond In The Rough.

To those who have not heard of it, a synopsis: Brolli Diamondback is a teenage boy who will die in three months from entering the Illusionary Realm of Gensokyo. We learn he's selfish, rude, not sympathetic to others, and very arrogant, and when he's given the chance to escape his boring high school life for that of an adventure in a fantasy realm, he jumps at the opportunity. Once in Gensokyo, though, he faces horrible monsters, corrupt heroes, and the ever-growing thought that this wasn't a good idea, but he'd rather find ways to gain more power than go back home.

Of course, knowing he'll die in three months, you know this won't end well.

This is not the tale of whether or not Brolli will die, because he will: this is the tale of whether or not he'll redeem himself by then...

I Was brought here by a link on a self-insert deconstruction, and I feel a self-insert story isn't necessarily a universally bad idea, I'm sure there's a way to do it right if you are careful to avoid the various pitfalls.

"The movie was quite intriguing, but the ending dramatically moved me. "Diamond In The Rough" has a plot with its own twists and turns, and that can really bring out your emotions."

It's symbolic: who cares about the details of canon characters when we have an original character to focus on?

When Kanji's Shadow gets defeated, it shows "Agi" in very small text for a short second.

It's partially finished. The first 1/3rd and last 1/3rd are done. It's done enough to get the intended reaction. You can submit a time to watch it on the WSW blog.

Yep. All in one sitting with no breaks but an intermission between reels. Plus, since it's on ustream when we do previews, there's a chat box so you can talk to your fellow viewers and ask questions.

Wow, looks like you did some research on movie posters in the news paper (or just recall them very well).

Time for some Kimo therapy (as we call critiques at my college)

Ok, I see proper use of hierarchy, with regard to both text and images. I see one "orphan / widow" text mistake and that's Uschi Koenig's part. I recommend putting "-Uschi Koenig" all on the 3rd line and not divided like it is. Also, the critiques to the right side... when they end, the double quote <"> is not aligned all the way to the right and looks a bit weird.

Why is Brolli the only one with a face? I get that the Touhou characters are supporting him and are less important (because they are smaller and in back of him). Would having more of a silhouette work better? or a blending of this be good, I don't know... but would experiment with. This way the face issue isn't as glaring apparent.

Oh, and if you are worried about jaggies (or what I call Coaco Puffs) because I'm going to release a tutorial on how to preserve edge quality of the black outline on a white back ground ... by Friday...

Thanks for the feedback, though I can explain the art direction of Brolli being the only one with a face: in most Gappy fics, the Gappy is the only character who is insanely detailed, while the rest of the cast are reduced to living props. You get giant blocks of text describing the main character, but you get very little describing any of the canon cast; we hear about the main character's thoughts and feelings, but any thoughts and feelings we get from the canon cast are about the Gappy; the writer of the Gappy fic wants to make sure the Gappy gets what he wants, while the canon characters fight to get the Gappy what he wants.

So, I made Brolli the only character with any details. After all, in the mindset of a Gappy fic writer, who cares about the canon characters?
