the ratings on this board are being a bit surreal. It looks like everything gets an 11/10, I wonder to what it is compared to come at this rating....

@ the wallpaper, very nice colors and theme, everything seems to be in the right place, except, and you mentioned this, the grid. I don't dislike it because it's overused. Instead, it just doesn't fit the overall theme of the wallpaper and looks totally out of place. If the grid wasn't there, it would look abetter I think, more calm, wich is needed for a place where u put your icons. Doesn't make it look less good though, still look great

*agrees with naz on this whole rating system shtuff*

Been thinking this for a bit, I wonder what they would do with say a wallpaper from syragon or something :D :D

Good wallpaper, but the text with the logo etc looks weird with the whole green theme...and to be honest, I never even saw the grid..at first :p

Ya it is annoying eh lol, some n00b posts some sig of them useing a green/blue twirl with it extruded and people are like "9999999/10" :\ <<====== In no way relates to this thread, nor is it ment to.

Anyways on-topic, I must admit its very nice, and the chicks add a certain w00t to it.

The second one is trend whorish, sitll good tho lol

I'll give the first one 8/10 and the second 7.5+/10

I definitely like the first one better. I think that the grid blends in with the image really well, but it would probably be just as good, if not better without it. Probably the main thing that I don't like about your second image are the crystals. That in itself made me not like it too much. I'd work with the second one definitely. :)

On the 2nd, the wave effect in the left up corner annoys me, can you fix that at all?

There is definitely an improvement. Technically you have improved, and I think you are getting a better hold on composition. Though, as always, there are things to work on. My first issue is with fonts. If you use text, think long and hard about what fonts you use and how visually they tie back to your theme. Jaggy, hand-scribbled fonts would make sense in a angry note or a punk band logo, not in these wallpapers.

The first one works pretty well, my only real issue (other than the grid) with it is that light effect you did on the character, it's unnatural and I think it queers the colors of that character.

I think the composition of the second piece is a little stronger than the first, but I'm not altogether sure why you let the figure break the top border and not the bottom border, it looks like a mistake. I also think the texture for the back should be more reminiscent of water. The jagged spikes aren't very liquid.

well in the scond one i let the character break the top and not the botom is because she doesnt have an legs in the image i have. those spikes are mainly to make it look like the wallpaper isnt so empty.

the reason for the lighting on the first on is just because i liked the way it looked over the original lightning chose for character.


and for the text i did think long and hard about it. my line of thinking was "what will stand out and be completely sort of chaotic but still somehow look like it belongs with the image". so i turned to "anything you want" because although some letters may not be the most legible i think the overal look of the text is enough to make up for it. i also tried cleaner looking texts but i just didnt like the outcome.


but yes i know i need new fonts.
