MangaHelpers Summer Art Contest - The Olympics - Jamaica ! by Erin'

Im not too much a sports watcher, and sports that I'm interested in are not featured in olympics, anyway. But, most of times, in sports contests, i tend to support underog teams, or smaller ones or athletes from less wealthy or popular teams/countries, That is the reason why i chose Jamaica and it's icon, Bolt.

For the avy i used that pic
For the sign : Pic1, Pic2, Pic3

And i added various effects, with mostly lunapic.
