My Symphony Poster

Click on the image for full resolution~! This is how our poster will be like. It is fully painted with sweat, tears, blood, heart, mind and soul~ lol So exagerating =P Anyways, it was mostly painted in college and the colors looks different in my computer. Looks darker to me but seems fine with other people's pc. Maybe cause I'm using a CRT monitor...

Comments and critics are really really welcome. Still need to adjust/touch up somemore... GANBATTE COTTAGE PICTURES!!! DDDDD8
