I like that a'lot more man! The left arm needs a little bit of touching up on though, but other then that, it looks outstanding!

Should I fade out that left arm?

I personally think it looks amazing, the only thing wrong with it is the cut off arm, which Createch told you about.

@Createch, I'll give the arm a little light erasing and post a version 2!

#Covet, Thank you! I'll be replacing the old thumbnails as I go and making new ones.

Awesome man! Can't wait to see what you come up with!

You can still make it look really good using the method you did, and it does.

I think this looks really good apart from you having your arms cut off and the green episode text could be changed to a different color.

Not bad.

@Covet, I just updated the thread!

@Wage, can you recommend a color? Also, how do I determine a matching color in the future?

Yeah thats a little better as it blends in  :) Wouldn't of taken off so much myself but alls good :) Still great job on the overall thumbnail!!

Thank you! haha. Next one I'll have someone take a picture of me. It'll have my whole upper body so that I'm able to manipulate it better. I appreciate the feedback!

I usually sample from a color that's already present in the canvas.

I'll do that on the next one. I am trying to decide if I should take a bunch of pictures and replace all the current thumbnails, or just do the new style from now on.

I say just do it from here on out. So then people can see your skills from before, and after.
