You can download splatter brush packs at deviantart.

To add them to photoshop, extract the file (if its zipped, if not just move it to this location..) to Hardrive > Program Files > Adobe > Adobe CS3 (or w/e PS your using) > Presets > Brushes.

Now you can load those brushes in adobe. Hope that helps.

If not, another way to attain a splatter efect, is grab a soft brush around 65-100px, and brush once or twice. Now grab your eraser, go into the brush settings and mess about with the dynamics, scattering(quite high, around 400%) etc . Then erase away on the brush layer with 65% opacity and around 40% flow.

That looks really good, a much better improvement over last weeks already.

Do what KryOnicle said to get the splatter brushes. Let us know if that works for you.

Once you have the whole thing all set the way you want try to sharpen it once or twice to make everything more clear.

Looks good bro.

You might want to unblur it a bit, and it looks like your trying to get a rough, blending border, try and match the outside color with that of the forum, it will look better.

Also, here are splatter brushes.

The Black Donnelys was awesome, I downloaded every episode after it was cancelled and have watched them all at least 20 times, easily my favorite show of all time, I still cant believe they cancelled it, if they ever release the names of who ever decided to take it off the air Im gonna hunt them down and jab a spork in there eye.
