Well I'm back, in a sense, I'll be popping in and out a bit more at least lol. Here's a new one I've been working on. Pooky said something about moving the shadow but I didn't understand and she had to go, so eh, maybe I'll figure out what she meant on here lol. Well anyways here it is, a wall of novices from Ragnarok :blink: :D

Welcome back :^_^:

Anyway, I kinda don't like both glow and shadow on the chars. If u want to keep the shadow suggest that u apply a bit of gaussian and/or motion blur on it.
And I'm a fan of monotone bg chars so suggest that u monotone the 3 chars in the bg. Maybe duplicate the bg layer, and color the chars with it.

are you missing a person..there's three in the bg but only two of them in the foreground.

I REALLY like how the one girl in the shadow on the far right looks. The two in front look outs place allmost, but all in all is btetr than i could do lol and it still put me in a "aaaaaa" when i 1st saw it :-D

It looks to me like the three more cartoony characters were taken from the anime istelf (yes for those that dont know they're making a ragnarok anime show) and that the two on the left look like renditions from the game.

I don't like this wallpaper - it looks like four pieces of clip art dropped onto a page with a lens flare added. I don't see any theme to the piece other than 'look at these characters in various poses.' It's not cohesive enough. There's more that can be done with it.

And what's with the blue? It's completely random and doesn't match anything.

Hmm, I'll probably do a different background if I could get some ideas that'd be great. I'm kinda blank on a BG that suits novices lol.

WeyrDragon
06-23-2004, 06:34 PM
well, orangish brown colors seem to be dominant on the characters, possibly something along those lines... might see if you could get a few good screens from the game and pop one of those in the backround in good taste of course..

Hmm how about this, I'll leave out the other pics for now to see how this works ;)

lol, they seems like giants :lol:
Maybe put a shadow (in the same direction as the shadows of the bg) under the chars. It may work :^_^:

WeyrDragon

AHHH! i think thats much better than the original, and you dont have the kind of contrast anymore that you had when you also had the cartoonish characters in there

edit: also you may wish to mirror that, so the characters wont be under icons.

Dude. Do you EVER have anything POSITIVE to say about a wallpaper? Yeesh...


Anyway, I like the second version best. Looks good. ^_^

Oops, the shadows weren't exactly 100% opaque so I guess it got absorbed into the BG lol, I'll fix it in a bit, got tons of people PMing me on RO >_>

Alright how's this? ^^

They look too stiff now. :( If you could somehow make them like blend in with the ground?

=O AOI-KUUUUUNNN!!!! *hugglesnuggles*
long time no see, good to have you back <3

now, important matters:
erm, im not sure about the view from top of the village...cause no matterwhat, theyll always look like theyre floating...

EternalBlue

Lol, well that&#39;s an official pic, so it&#39;s not really possible for me to make a different veiw of it lol. Any ideas on how to make them blend in?

escaflownemoon

Are they standing on top of trees? Well since they look like they are floating no matter how you change it why not add some clouds that they are above the place. ;) :^_^:

EternalBlue
06-25-2004, 12:15 PM
Sure why not, added a light fog, and some clouds.

EternalBlue
06-25-2004, 12:44 PM
Or maybe like this.

I think the second one works better, makes it seem like the characters are more seperate from the background while still being a part of it.

escaflownemoon
06-25-2004, 02:50 PM
The last one is the best. The ones with the clouds seems too weird and jagged lol. Good Job. *thumbs up* By the way, the characters&#39; arm and legs is a bit jagged around. Not a big deal unless looking at it. :)

Agree with others, the last one :^_^:

Why are you high jacking somebody elses wallpaper? O.o Did you get their permission to do this? Also, why are you high jacking this thread?

I like the one with the black bars at the top and the bottom&#33; Nice composition, I think it works really well.

*sticks tongue out at Xian Pu* ;)

One suggestion: the pink neon Kanji in the lower left of the picture looks nice, but it&#39;ll be hidden by the Windows task bar... I think it should be made more visible.

Okay, something weird... I hit &#39;Fast Reply&#39; and replied to the other thread on the Ragnarok wallpaper, but my reply appeared in THIS thread&#33;

I think nobody&#39;s intentionally hijacking a thread - the board is screwed up somehow&#33;

The kanji is part of my sig lol EternalBlue, soooo yea :D

EDIT: just fixed up some really minor things, and tried to fix some of the jaggedness, although doesn&#39;t seem much has changed lol.
