Hi all, I really don't know what to do with this wallpaper. My first idea was a sunset theme but then it turns out to be this...

So tell me what you all think of it. I'd be glad to make changes. :^_^:

Its looks good but she looks like shes standing on water :P so I think thats the only thing to change.

How about cutting in a beach somewhere along the horizon; so that way she's not standing out in the middle of nowhere? *shrug*

A white sail boat in the background would look nice.

nice ^^
Mhh the beach is good, try removing the starfish and the crab, and add the boat, it's a very anice idea^^ try to find a wooden boat, a white and blue one(without sail, just an old fishing boat).
Then saturate a bit the bg and add some sun-rays.
If you don't find the boat, put a white text withan overlay glow like "tropical summer" or something else like it ^^
good job!

I like the star, but I don't like the crab...
Yea, and add sun rays!! Shiney ones!
Also... the character looks really smart blurred, i think
Other than that... it's purdy! :)

Thanks for all the comments and suggestion I'll make the changes asap. :) I must say that the crab I put in there does look evil and kinda ugly too..:lol:

The crab and the starfish are making the wall look bad. Remove them and add something like palmtrees around the girl to make it look like she's near some place with lots of 'em, ya get what I mean?

Pooky, do you remember this picture?! Asura Blood made a wallpaper with it back at old AW O.O ...Even the wallpaper is almost identical... Only a little different... *has photographic memory*

Updated: Palm tree with shadow..don't know if its the right angle.
Text "tropical summer" bended,satin. I had white but I thought I try this first.
no sailboat, it was hard to find the right one to fit with the
water layer. ;)

so this what I came up with. Tell me what you guys think and also I wanted to put in sun rays but didn't know how to make them. Can somebody tell me plz? :^_^:

Hmmmm... I like it a lot, but something seems to be missing. How about a lighting effect directly overhead, or rather a little to the left (so as to not interfere with shadows)?

It looks awesome but it looks like shes supposed to be taking the leaf from the tree you added in but the leaf is the wrong way. But if she isnt then you should make some leaves hanging down, not to far though, off the tree you added.

My attempt at a tutorial:

Make a bunch of dots with the Oil Pastel Large brush, size 63. Then give it a motion blur at angle:48, distance:193. Actually, you could probably use whatever angle you wanted depending on the location. Then, to soften it a bit, give it a guassian blur, size 1. THE END. That's it I do mine, anyway.

Updated:

1. ) Somewhat of a sunray..I tried my best..may have to go back on it.

2. ) Added palmtree leaves to the palm tree branch to make it look like she's not pulling on the wrong palm tree..hehe

3. ) I added a lensflare in behind the tree so that way it doesn't seem so obvious..I guess..hmm for some kind of lighting effect?

Spots? where? I really didn't see any.

Tell me what you guys think of it now. Oh by the way thanks for all your previous comments those who posted, I greatly appreciated them. :)

TA DAH!
