Well I compliment you for going for a grunge approach c:.
The upper-left is pretty sick, but it seems a bit messy, and not in a good way. The thing about Vertical tags is that they're tricky to do, and it's a lot harder to get it come out all purrrdy and nice; believe you me, i know what that's liek lol. If you could pull a curves adjustment layer over the tag, it might look more eye-pleasing, and a balanced outcome ^^

I actually tried that- just now, and several times when doing the tag. If I went darker, the yellow AND the yellow go to crap. If I go lighter, it looks too bright. >__>

. . . It's empty in the upper-left ken.

Yea, I know. >_> Vertical tags are eh, especially since This was only my second one. ;__; (well techinically I started this first, but finished this after I did the flavor of life one. lol) But I'm not that displeased with it.

D: well, have you tried a photo filter, then curves, or maybe a dim-gray soft layer??

I was referring to what's right in front of Lelouch's eyes :3

Well nobody(me) said you shouldn't. I applaud you for doing a Vert tag. you know you don't see many of these lately D:, and well yeah. Keep practicing, and I'm sure you'll be able to get use to the feel of a V. Tag :3

This isn't a grunge approach, btw.

Anyway, I think that just smashing curves over this won't magically make it into an eye pleasing piece. It takes more than that. If you followed this advice, you'd get an extremely over contrasted and choppy result that would destroy the quality of what you have right now. I honestly think that this would be a lot better if you got rid of some of the yellow that's in the bottom left hand corner.

This is also a perfect introduction into mentioning color balance.
The yellow's too dominant in this tag to the point where the original pink that'd originally compliment this looks more washed out than it should be. And lighting wise, it looks a little too contrasted. I'd suggest to either lower that or like I said..get rid of some of that yellow going on.
