This is my first time making a wallpaper in quite a long time (at least a couple of years). So if you have any tips, suggestions, comments etc. I'd absolutely love to hear them.

I like the concept but its too plain and not attractive from my point of view;) .......

Fairly good I like it but it is plain.

I can see some people seem to think it is a tad on the plain side. So what do you think would help spice it up a little. And if you say lens flare, I will kill you :p

There's nothing really wrong with it, though I do agree that it's a bit plain. Maybe play with the layers a bit? Maybe an overlay on the "Free Japan" poster to seperate it from the wanted poster.


I realized, I shouldn't have launched straight into a criticism. My bad.^^; I like the concept you had for this wallpaper, very original. It's been a while since I've seen a wallpaper that doesn't rely on flashy effects to make it work. Well done.

That said, I still think it's a good idea to make the two seperate posters sorta distinct from one another.

Well thank you for the comments, I've done some more touching up here and there. I've made the Recruitment poster a bit more grungy to make the two posters seem more distinct. I didn't like the effects from the overlays but I got the change in effect through a nice messy green linear burn with some opacity tweaking.

I also added a bit of blood on the wanted poster, just enough of a spray so as to add a bit of zing without ruining the poster.

You're very welcome.^-^

Nicely done. There's a good amount of depth to the wall now. It looks good enough to submit.=]

Not enough lens flare.

Seriously, it's much better than before. You might want to try making the duct tape pieces larger (wider), since they seem to be a bit too small for such a rough surface. You could try playing around with displacement maps (filter>distort>displace), it can do magic if used properly and in moderation, especially with the paper edges.
