View Full Version : In Need Of Help

Okok... i've been working on this wallpaper for a couple days now. I started cutting the picture out and then put it on the wall, everything was dandy.
But then I had a mental block and didn't hav a clue of what to put on the background. Ive tried many things, changed it a billion times but I just can't get the look I want (I don't even know what that look is)

And I was hoping you guys could help me out a little.... any ideas?

[And I know I have to do something about the plain black background... I had lots of things there once, but then it just started looking crowded and crazy...]

looks fine the way it is. maybe you could lower her glow a bit though.

i dont like the black background ... its not fiting with the blue i think

The glow around the tech stuff should get canned, it just doesn't fit. The glow on the character should be reduced to about 2 or 3 pixels. The black background could be turned a shade of blue to match the blue on the character, maybe a blue gradient.

for the bg, you should use the color of the eye of the chara(blue and a light hue of water-green), a gradient of blue,and maybe you can add a slight white grill, like a waving one..

They've all taken the words right out of my mouth -_- Just rework the background and the glow and the techness

Thanx for the help... the wallpaper is starting to look better now

I got rid of the black and added a bluey/purpley/pinky gradient.... im thinking of doing something to the gradient but im not sure yet
I Got rid of the ugly thick glow from the person and the bar thingy... and just made a small one around the person
Umm... i think i changed the colour of the bar, but i forget

Anyway... Have a sneak peek

2nd version is much better! The only thing that bothers me (other than alot of negative space) is she's floating...maybe add a shadow to plant her down.

12-05-2003, 07:19 PM
hmm looks really good now !

12-05-2003, 07:32 PM
I tried to fill up the space by putting stuff there... (good explanation <_< )
And i didn&#39;t know how to put a shadow on the character with a glow there... It looked funny to me ~~ So I took the glow off, and put a shadow there instead

your style is very similar to mine (except you dont use nearly as many boxes as me ;) ). Great to see another one that uses cutesy pics&#33; Now... if only someone else will do yaoi... muhahaha&#33;

Anyway, to the wallpaper&#33; : the colors are great, the text box is great, the monotone images are great, and the stars are fun. How about giving the stars more depth? Like, adding other colors, a glow, etc.

heh good job so far, like pooky was saying I think the stars are a little blan. The girl is just too cute for me though gives me cavities just looking at her. :P

12-06-2003, 06:34 AM
Well, i got glowing on the little funny space filler things
I think it looks funny, but i like it :P

Check it out

actually, that&#39;s a pretty good start&#33; did you try giving it a purple-ish glow instead of a white? just curious about how it would look

It&#39;s pretty nice, but maybe do the purple glow thing would look better.
And Pooky, when the subject is boxes, no one can beat ya. lol =P

12-06-2003, 06:19 PM
If it&#39;s purple glow you want, it&#39;s purple glow you&#39;ll get
Here it is in purple

12-06-2003, 06:22 PM
i think the purple looks better because it matches the purple in the background. what do ya&#39;ll think?

I like the purple sparkles one better. It matches and blends with the background better ^^
