I would like some comments about this, it's the first thing i've ever really done using bright colors. usually I go dark because it's easier for me. The wide space in the center is supposed to be there, I measured and it will hold like 12 icons at 1024 x 768.
Center Chii is little bit fuzzy.
And too much colors.
holy crap dude, its like a Rainbow threw up all over Chii
not good, not good at all
get rid of the colours, the two background stocks, just leave the chobits title (with a drop shadow) and the little chii stock on a white background
Way too many colors...
And the effect on the edges looks.. well, 'blocky'.
The three images arent working together on this one, sorry. They are all fighting fiercely for attention along with the rainbow. Too many pictures creates an eyesore, and too many bright colors arent appealing.
Maybe you should just focus on one of the pictures and work on a background that compliments the main colors of that picture. It can be fairly plain and that will allow for icons real easily. (I have no desire to change all my icons around everytime I pick a new wallpaper.)
like the others said, way too much color. get rid of the effect on the outer edge it just doesn't look good at all. as for the the different pictures, it'd probably look better if you kept the middle and made the two bg pics the same monotone color and slightly translucent (so they're not so obvious) and the logo at the top is a little jagged to me maybe try smoothing it a little?
Thanks for the advice. I know the edges are blocky, I kinda wanted it to be that way, I was trying to get the feel of the Chobits opening with it. I suppose it failed. I think I am going to scrap this one and just do another. Thanks for the feedback.
