I am by far a pro in this section ive just started but I would say a little bit of color in the background or a landscape behind it would be cool
now it kind of empty

It could use a little background yes. :)

Generally I believe that it is possible to make a good wallpaper without adding much background to the image. But in this case I think it needs something a bit more.

I played around with the image a bit cause I don't think I would help all that much by telling you to adjust the composition by moving stuff around, so I posted a sample of what could be possible.

Change that FFXII logo. To be honest, to me it looks like leaf-eating bugs got ahold of the logo and started munching away. I think you should either smooth out the effect or change it or remove the image.

Other than that, I believe you have the starts of a decent wallpaper, just continue to play with it.

The white bg is a good idea, but in this case it does need more work with how you arrange the images. Also get rid of the chewed up logo not saying you should discard the logo but make it not so chewed up in the extraction.

Heres my opinion, I feel that main image is pretty awkward looking(looks like shes picking her nose) but that isnt my main quam with this wallpaper. Tutorials are great GREAT resources but when i see someone use a tutorial in the exact same way its shown on the site it bothers me. Creativity and originality is what defines you as an artist(digital or not) but you should always tweak tutorials to be something special or individual to you. If you created a body would you put a copy of an existing soul in it? Just be creative. It is turning out nicely though. Good luck.

hahahaha, a noob pro. That's the first I've heard. Use some punctuation and I might understand your whole sentance.

Hmm i think you should really put somethin over that white background. Maybe you could put a larger pic of that girl and lower the opacity of it?

I would get rid of the logo, and take RequiMem's example and add a watercolor painting of a beach or some thing, or just a soft mixture of colors. to mix in with the word art and the fram of the pic but other than that I think its good.
