Hi ppl...after 2 weeks here my new wall!!
I have always wanted to use the Fractal Renders i found in planetrenders.net and make a wall but never had the opportunity^^..
anyway,finally felt like using them and made a CG wall(since im obsessed with it)..
The BG is a combination os several Fractal renders and then i colored them usingm my own way of coloring(its not st impressive though ^^).also used a scan from animepaper and vectored Lulu using it which took alot of time due to the method i used(shape layers) for vectroing.i think i have choosen a wierd title for it but hope its not too bad ^^.
Took 4 days of work.dont exactly remember how many layers it was since i keep merging them so that i dont get confused specially when im vectoring st.
Any Critique and advice is welcomed ^^

This one is really not bad.
Almost reminds me of a demotivational poster though...
Also, there's something about the C4Ds that you put there that doesn't seem to fit...

Overall, it's really good.
Keep up your wallpaper making.
You have seriously improved since the last time I saw one of your wallpapers.

The fractals seriously don't go well with the stock you used. Their styles contrast each other way too much. Maybe you could find a way of softening up it up?

I agree with Balance and Kuro. the whole idea is fragmented and DOES NOT fit in well together. I'd recommend using colour themes that go either with the extracts haie/eyes/clothes. This usually works. The wall doesn't seem to have any meaning in it. "My will is your fate" goes well with the extract but not with the bg. The title and extract imply danger and destruction but the bg has a more serene look. You need a different bg. Try using different brushwork. Or make it scenic.

If you're going to stick with this layout (black strips on the top and bottom, extract on right side, and bg on left) you'll need depth. So try to work on that too.

I like how the C4D gives off a spider-webby effect. And the vector looks very clean and detailed =DD Though, I do think you overdid the C4Ds there.

Awesome job on the vectoring!

Seems due to lack of description in my first post some ppl got confused.
first of all :Thx for ur comments guys ^^....I was wondering when someone is gonna notice that and finally dear Unli did.yes C4D has a particular shape which is due to concept of the wallpaper and ill exlain it here.

The wall doesn't seem to have any meaning in it. "My will is your fate" goes well with the extract but not with the bg. The title and extract imply danger and destruction but the bg has a more serene look. You need a different bg. Try using different brushwork. Or make it scenic.
im rather disappointed since it seems not many ppl watch Code Geass or if they do well......the BG has a certain meaning and the only type of BG which suites the idea i had for this wall(its not meaningless -_-)..the BG is related to the scenes when Lulu uses geass and then that brain neurons" or axons, cells, or whatever physiological scene u like to call them.thats why the the Fractal render has that spider shape(made it purposly like that)..well u see its abit comlicated and hard to figure out the meaning if u haven't watched Code Geass..also about the blending:Lulu isnt part of the BG and he is a separate part which needs to stand out first and then focuse that axon or whatever scene...so i didnt blend them toghather since its a combination of two separate idea and about coloring this also explains why the colors of BG and extract dont blend toghather.....well thats what i wanted to make and the concept i had for my wall..hope it doesnt annoy ppl
BTW i myslef think that lack of contrast has turned out to st good ^^ dont know about u ppl

@salar: balance, KuroTan and karuto are right. While it's obvious that you've been going for the geass activation sequence look, the vector and mix of renders really do not go well together, as the vector is far too clean and the stock is too detailed. It works in the anime because it's well, moving, and the detail is blurred away. What you need is some sort of motion blur going, with only itsy bitsy lines showing up sharp as the vector is. It all would work much better if the character wasn't that far right, too - perhaps even centered. BTW, you also need for the render to go in the direction the character is facing if you want to add more depth and make the background feel less disconnected. Get Apophysis and render some stock that'd fit better yourself.
