better than the other....perhaps enlarge the image a tiny bit, so that it seems less empty...test is kind of hard to see.....whats the file size? took about half a minute to load with high-speed internet....

Strange, size is 637kb, I did the suggested changes... any others?

The background is too busy, and the text is too opaque.

I made the text more transparent and made the background Dejiko more transparent, I also darkened the background... Nyo!

The text is too frickin huuuuuuge!
Plus the background doesn't fit with Dejiko at all...

I also agree the text is mega huge and it is too much drawing away attention from the character. I like the bg itself but it seems like it doesn't fit with the cute character.

What background would go with her do you think?

Something smoother and softer and cuter. Try using some soft yellow or green on it.

OK, pretty much a complete redesign, but I took your advice

now she needs a shadow..seems like she is floating. The colours look better now though.

aluren

Okay, gave her a shadow

Anyone can render clouds...

True, I'm working on the bg, I was more looking for approval of the colors...

Edit: OK I made a background... any suggestions?

- Nyo

yes I have one..it doesn't fit..you can put a scenery instead..somtimes abstract may not fit. Like the colours you have there are fine..you can add trees, a river bank that she may be sitting..etc.. you can have clouds but not rendered clouds alone.. keep trying :) you just need some pointers.

any tutorials on making a scenery? I've never done it before! Thanks for the help...

You can use stock photos of real forest, oceans,park etc..on the internet
put it as a separate layer and apply filters to it just to give feel and theme..balanced...

I'll give you one advice: do not simply throw lots of random filters to make a background... You have to feel what you're doing, you have to know what you're doing, over everything else.

I agree with dark ;)
the bg it's totally nomatching :unsure: :) but don't give up! Escaflownemoone gave u a perfect advice!
Mine is to change at all the font.when you use a font you should put a themed one.digicharat it's a cute-tech(?) anime, the font you've used it's a total dark one...it seems that she's waiting to kill someone ^^'' I mean don't mind, you can easily fix it, if u put a forest bg, you could move her to the right, increasing her size and move the text to the left(lower left) and ta-daan! you've got a beautiful work! ;) good job!

Okay, I posted this here but it's totally different, the only common element is Dejiko... I did this because I think posting six threads in a week is OTT :)

the bg it's better, but when I saw this wall I saw everything except her.I mean, the focus of your wall seems to be the word "dejiiko", not her...when you make a wall, you have to know where focusing(generally on the chara, otherwise they won't be called "anime wallpapers ;) ).ok? :)
ps:

Strange, size is 637kb
ehm... the wall must be lower than 300k,if your work is bigger, you should say it before someone opens it :)

true akachan. :) The bg is ok you got some idea...but yea I was way into looking at the bg huge tree and cg water..seems like she is going to be flooded by the rising river there hehe...I had to lookd for her like where is Waldo..

aluren
06-17-2004, 05:41 PM
So how could I focus it more on her?

escaflownemoon
06-17-2004, 05:50 PM
you can fade the bg...or choose somthing that would complement her.

aluren
06-17-2004, 07:44 PM
Okay, I blended the BG and edited the curves a bit... also faded the text...

akachan
06-18-2004, 07:19 AM
mhh I prefer the previous version...the only thing you have to make is enlarging her and making more little the text(and maybe changing the text color to a green/blue one).. imho nothing else and it'll be a beautiful work :)

escaflownemoon
06-18-2004, 09:00 AM
I agree with akachan of enlarging her.

Ok, the extraction's a bit messy, I'll fix it if/when someone replies to say it's good / bad / what to change...

do you by any chance enlarge the bg before? Right now I looked at the sky and see stretch marks I guess that what they are called or pixelation.. she looks noticable now..

Himura Enishi

looks much better

Umm no the bg is exactly as it was before... I dunno what you mean by stretch marks.
