What do u guys think? anything i need to touch-up?

Nice concept but in my opinion is to simple. I would retouch the bg and make it darker (maybe u can find a pic of a lakeside or something during the night and used it as a bg).

Keep trying

I like the bg and color...for my taste? The yellow spots need to go, they look out of place, try something else there to fill up the space.

i like the idea, but i agree with wizzard you should find some sort of landscape for the background (put it in really lightly, i think). as for the yellow spots, you should probably make them smaller and more randomly placed

over all, it's not bad

nice job so far, but its a bit plain for my tastes. perhaps you can add some text or like the others were saying, add a pic for the bg.

I don't know about you but those lines are giving me a headache by looking at your wall. Maybe tone it down a bit? I agree with acamori with the yellow dots by making them smaller and also fade it out a bit so that it's not eye catching. Overall it's pretty good.

Yeah, the stripes are a bit hard on the eyes. If you want to keep them, I would fade them into eachother for a more subtle effect and then tone down the opacity on the fireflies (?) they draw your eye too much. Maybe make them smaller & add a few more, just not too many.

beautiful background pic! It really looks nice & gives a nice feel to the WP. Nice work.

I like the background you put in. It helps blend it overall.

The new bg is much nicer...everything goes well. If you could clean up the scan of Kenshin a bit, I'd give it my highest praise (like that's worth anything...;) ).

Very nice the second version is 100x better then the first, one of the best kenshin walls I have seen though im not a fan of kenshin.

It's amazing what a little constructive critisism can do for your work, isn't it? It's one reason I love this board so much.

Your second wall is amazing. I love how you did the kanji for Kenshin's name, as well as the color contrast between Kenshin and the background. Keep up the good work!

awesome wall. I really like your bg landscape. It really goes well with him. 2 thumbs up. :)

Wow, the second one is so much better!
Everyone pretty much said everything I was gonna say... and yea, just clean up kenshin (around the edges)

I like it, too. It's simple and really nice.

Be careful about your image-size. The posted image is nearly 500kByte which is too large for this image dimensions (1024 x 768). It takes really long to load with a 56k modem (yes, there are still some people using that stuff). Increase the compression value of your JPEG-File until you reach about 200k (should be enough for a nearly monochrome wallpaper). Do the same with the Love Hina WP you've submitted (which is even bigger). If you want to submit this wallpapers they will most likely not be accepted because of the filesize.

although both are really nice, I like the first a lot.

The second one is better, although I don't think that particular Kenshin image looks good over the serene waterfall. I'd maybe up the contrast on his colors, make him really bold and stand out.

Oh, and I think pale little fireflies around the water could look pretty.
