Photo Information
Let's see if anyone likes this image at all! Haha. This is my most controversial image. Half of the people who see it think it's garbage, and the other half think "It's pretty awesome".

I don't know who to believe, really.

Love it Dubi! When I first saw it, and it was obvious it was yours, I thought something was bursting out of her dress. Closer examination revealed her knee!
Far less threatening than a gun!

Thanks guys.

As you can see, I added some texture to the edges of the frame. For advice on that, I went over to GraphicDesignForum.com. I was torn apart! They were mentioning things like her motivation for holding the sword, the reason she was angry, the message I was trying to convey with this image. A few of them said the sword in her hand read like a skateboard or a splash of water. They also hated the knee.

All I could think to myself was "Does it matter what message I'm trying to convey with this image? I'm just trying to make her look like a badass"

They ended up giving me no useful advice, actually.
