On the usual scale of 1 to 10 this is another 10! I feel that it looks like a real cover. My favorite part of the magazine is the picture of me holding the guitar. The only weakness I can tell is that my copycat cover is a little different on the color placement. If I had more time I would try to do more layer masks and touchups with the hair on my cover, I would also fix the top letters and make them a little more clear by leading them and also kerning them in certain spots. I used the text tool and the quick selection tool. I learned how to make fonts look bigger than they are.
