im just starting making wp's too. the picture of Fiona in the front is kind of scratchy. try bluring it a TINY bit to make it blend more. but, it kicks the crap out of my first WP :) .

those Zoids are kind of out of nowhere . I like the colors but the quality of the main character is really bad. Other then that, well the font is cool too,
you should still work on it

thanks for all your help guys (>`-`)> I get what you mean.
I madea second one while thinking about what you said.
I&#39;ll edit it according to your advice <(^-^)> (there seems to be no hope for the zoids one)

heh, keep working ^^ and itll be better and better&#33; ...i remember when i was new here ( not too long ago ) i was so stessed to post walls here, but i got better and now im pretty proud of what i do, so keep persevering &#33;


that was kind of nowhere but i was feeling the i-have-to-give-a-keep-up-the-good-work-comment way. anyway, i think the second one is pretty weird. Im not sure of what to change.....maybe that green-bar color

I&#39;d highly recommend putting your new wallpaper in a new thread. not only is it in the rules, but will also get more comments and keep your thread on topic. Thanks&#33;

sorry ._. just didnt wanna waste space.

To Candy and Dark: thanks for the compliments ^-^ maybe sometime I&#39;ll have one good enough to submit soon.
and what do you suggest I change the blue line to? ;x

Gjallarhorn
01-27-2004, 10:05 PM

Shakaku

hmm I thinks you&#39;re right :o I tried it. looks better to me

Nice... hmm
I think the second wallpaper might look better with a monotone background, a blue-ish one or something like that... one that matches/contrasts with the focus picture

And I was wondering... are you going to do anything on your first wallpaper or are u just leaving it? Because I don&#39;t know if I should comment on it or anything, as you&#39;ve already moved on to your next wallpaper :wacko:

But your wallpapers are really good&#33; :)




[Oh yea, before I forget - DarkTwilight, stop criticising yourself&#33;&#33; My god&#33;... do you know how many time&#39;s you&#39;ve downgraded yourself&#33;? You don&#39;t suck, ok?] :ph34r:

I&#39;m just leaving the first one... :X too many unfixables.

I tried a monotone background :o I also flipped it to try moving more attention to vivi other than the left-side airship.

(think I&#39;d get flamed if I submitted this? <(._.)>)

unfixables?

it is fixable, only needs a lot of patience, by recoloring the main image itself

The main picture is just floating. You need to bring "it" into focus. He&#39;s just heh pasted there onto the gray bar.
And this thread is now dead to that Zoids wall since you&#39;re obviously changing the FF wall.
Also, that Zoids wall.. It looks really good to me. Except I don&#39;t think it&#39;ll get accepted cause that picture doesn&#39;t look like it was done by the original artist. I don&#39;t know, I&#39;ve seen a few of the anime and she doesn&#39;t look so cute in it.

Ok, I don&#39;t like the last version that u posted. Seems to light to me.

The bg still isn&#39;t monotone, u can make it monotone by duplicating the layer, hue the duplicated one by selecting Hue/saturation in your menu or just presing "ctrl + U"(if u are using PhotoShop, if u use another program pleas tell use so we can guide u).
Then sellect colorize and then the color u prefer (for this wp I would go with light blue) and then set the blendings option of the layer to color.

For the second wall, I think Vivi needs to be grounded..he&#39;s just floating in thin air. Did you move that airship? I think you did and I find it quite sticking in my face just because of the way it is placed. It seems awkward IMO. It&#39;s a good try. Keep on working on it, i&#39;m sure you have lots of creativity, just gotta use the right tool to do the work. :)

the 1st version of the second wall was pretty good. But the lil character is jus floating nd needs to be placed somewhere where he will not look like that ( not sure where though :P ). also the bright blue doesn&#39;t match to well nd is to bright, try a darker blue, a color from the bg, but not gray. Also the text is a lil to hard to see nd u can barley notice it, it needs to stand out a lil more. Ithe two bars could also be a lil thinner, I really liked the concept alot though, great idea&#33; :D

could you teach me how to monotone in paint shop pro? :X
and I&#39;ll thin the bats, make the text more visible, and try moving Vivi around while i wait ^-^ and maybe ill flip the background picture back if it looks better that way to you.

Sorry, no PSP experience here other >_< Personally, aside from the blue bar, I liked the first one better, but I&#39;ll go with the flow and see what a monotone one looks like too B)

Shakaku
01-28-2004, 04:38 PM
heh :X I thought it looked best without monotone too, just maybe a bit lighter~

oh aaaand
here&#39;s the edited version without monotoning (>`-`<)
does he look grounded now?
he looks messy around the edges but ill fix that after all the changes :X

The char seems better, but I&#39;ll wait for the final retouchment :D

For the bg, I also think that (in one way) is better as it is. But I&#39;ve learned that monotoning it sometimes can just improve the wp.
It&#39;s your decision if u&#39;ll monotone it or not, u can just try and see it by yourself, if it&#39;s any better or not.

waste all the space you want&#33; we have room. It&#39;s in the rules to open a new thread for a new wallpaper creation, so don&#39;t worry about wasting space
