Very, very good, but...

IT NEEDS WHITE TEXT!!! :lol:
I did try with white text but it was even more difficult to read, Red was the lesser of two evils.

I reckon the best way around it would be to do a border at the top and bottom separate from the artwork, but blends in.

What Big Finish tend to do is white text with a slight black stroke, and they make sure that the lower half of the image doesn't really have much going on in it. They also make sure that the colours contrast well against the white (most of the time) and they also sometimes blur the image slightly behind the text.

Seriously, from a pure photoshop POV it’s your best so far, the composition works especially well.

Plus, 5 Peris!
