    Ahh good old zoom and eraser hey, thats all.

    But yeah it's the extracting that takes for ever in making a wall, unless u going to be puting a glow on the edges then it's a little faster cos u can be allitle non accurate.

    I wish there was a faster way but unless u can find the char buy it's self it takes a will.

    Okay, for everyone using the Polygonal Lasso... theres a better way xP
    The pen tool is nearly the exact same but better.

    Step 1: Grab your mighty pen tool
    Step 2: Make a selection around the entire object :P
    Step 3: Right click [make sure its a layer] click make selection. Go up to Select and click 'inverse' then press Delete. Ta-daa~

    Tutorial

    Here's a good extraction tutorial : http://www.good-tutorials.com/track/4973

    It's using the extraction tool....try it see if you like it. I think this is the easiest and quickest way to have a decent extraction.

    I'm a polygonial lasso girl, I used the navigator tool and zoom in to 700%.
    I've tried other methods, but nothing beats this tool for me. I usually extract on a bright background, usually a bright red, yellow or blue... to be able to see what the edges are doing.
    Time wise, in my time as a waller, that has ranged from about 1 hour to 5 hours.
    Now.... remember I wall manga images mostly, so the 5 hour extractions are nearly all of Angel Sanctuary or Clamp art.
    Yes I'm insane.... but someone's gotta be to make the walls I do.
    Right guys

    it has a tutorial on extracting.... check it out..
    (rofl XD shinta you owe me...)

    As for me, I use Pen tool, then zoom to about 600%-800%,
    and then I use Shinta's tip on enhancing the contrast and removing the graininess of the scan... much useful
