Execl Wallpaper (http://www.angelfire.com/ultra/ldysaturn/wallpapers/excel1024x768.jpg)

I wanted to make a wallpaper and my husband said to make him one from Excel Saga. It isn't very good, but I am just wanting some constructive criticism.

Its not that bad. The text at the bottom will be cut off by the taskbar, so you may wanna raise it up alittle bit, and maybe use a green to black gradient for the text fill. It seems to be missing something, but maybe its just me. Other than that, i think its a good wall :D

It's a good wall. Shift the words "Excel" higher up so it doesn't get covered by the taskbar. Next, you might wanna shift the little girl from the top left to the left of the main girl at the right. Your characters are too far apart, bring em closer

You want some Critisism? I'll give it too you!

Just kidding. But here's what I see. Perhaps just a better version of the Angel picture if you want to make it higher quality and make the Excel font higher as previously suggested. Also if you don't want to make the big picture of Excel as the definite background, you could use it as a centerpiece with the wallp[aper being white. But I know that perticular picture of Excel and that it is cut off so you can't do that in this perticular wallpaper.

Get a different angel (better quality like Kenryoku_Maxis said). If you cant try to blur the edges at least. Move the text up a bit, and choose a clearer font for your name. Maybe you can clean up those pixels on the word (excel) so they dont stick out so much. Other then that good bg.

Change the angel like said already, and make the background picture hued one color only. It will bring the attention more to the main picture.

Nice for a first wallpaper~! It's nice and simple ^^ As the others had already suggested, bring up with word Excel up a little bit. As an addition, I might also suggest you try playing around with the background image to come up with some effects that might be an addition to the wallpaper. It might spice it up a little bit ^^

Nice for your first wp.
Like everybody suggested bring the text a bit higher, and I would make a green monotone bg.

Keep trying!

I do not like the angel where it is because it's distracting. also, it is a bit plain. design will come with time, so no worries! it's a good first start to a wallpaper
