I'm Luthor...
i posted a bunch about myself in the introduction topic...
lemme know what you think...
i've touched up a bunch of images...
tried to make a nice group pic...

It's very interesting! Most choose a central focus for the wallpaper. However, I think that there is a way to make your wallpaper less busy. For one, you could make the whole thing monotone. This would blend everything together and make it look like it fits. Then, you could add some text like "anime" or some design details like lines or boxes.

an issue I saw was that some of the outlines of the characters (like Kenshin) are not that crisp. Just go over the outlines and make sure they are cut closer. If you need help, just say so!

It's a nice first wall and is one that anime fans would appreciate.

01-26-2004, 09:05 PM
ummmm...well unless i'm mistaken, most of those chara's don't have anything to do with each other so as a group pic it makes no sense. a lot of the pics also need better extraction. the wall itself has no real focus and is basically a collage of random characters.

considering you're a beginner, the extractions aren't bad. i would suggest you pick a particular character you want a wall for and make a bg to fit.

Anyone got some rope i can borrow?

2 or 3 feet will do...
then you guys can hang me...
hehe :)
i dont really have a favorite character...

01-26-2004, 09:25 PM
o.o i just started making wallpaper...mine is crap compared to urs.

01-26-2004, 09:26 PM
it doesn't HAVE to be of one character or one anime; art is in the eye of the beholder! Since you have so many different characters and themes, you will have to bring them together somehow.

and no dying allowed in the forum. Gets too messy to clean up. :P

luthor...RANMA IMAGES!!you're going to be one of the new newbies i like his way of wallpapers (also dark,keep going!)if you need good ranma images or opinion about I'm here..
(Pooky can I become the official ranma1/2 wallpaper-counsellor in this forum?please :wub: I would make a kodachi wall for you, I've already got some good pict of her.. :lol: )
idea for the wall(I hope you like it :) ):you could group the charas of an anime in a particular area, like:"the comic area(ranma etc)","the science area(eva etc)","the adventure area(kenshin etc)"...giving a particular color to every of the areas ...oh, cut some of them better.
I hope you like this advice :rolleyes:

01-27-2004, 05:38 AM
i disagree with akachan (sorry hun! you can still be the ranma 1/2 fangirl of the forums, though B) ) with the color thing. There is already so much going on with the wallpaper that giving it many colors would confuse things. I would go with one color or hue (ie, various blue colors) and then maybe add some funky text.

01-27-2004, 06:05 AM
About that text...
know any good fonts? :D
i've been scrolling through a bunch of mine and i havent come across one i really like...
i hope i made the image a purple-lish blue...
then i was hoping to use a nice sky blue...
i dont know many good quotes either :wacko:
i was thinking...
"Peace can only be obtained with Friendship" :wub:

01-27-2004, 10:06 AM
(for Pooky:ok headmaster :D )
there's a good site for the freefontssimplythebest (http://simplythebest.net/fonts) :)

01-27-2004, 10:14 AM
Hehe I'll add to that. Another good site for fonts is Fontgarden (http://www.fontgarden.com)

Lotsa fonts there, have fun with em ^^

01-28-2004, 05:39 AM
Thanks for the fonts...
they really helped...
so many good ones to pick from :^_^:
i fixed up my piece of trash...
i think i found a really good quote for my wp...
hope you like it...
o btw
i am really bad with picking colors... :rolleyes:
yell at me all you like please...

01-28-2004, 10:07 AM
Looks really nice with the monotone approach. I personally won't use it as a wall but I think it's nice though (hey~ I do use the walls that people make in this forum! lots of times!)

01-28-2004, 12:49 PM
Yeah, I agree, the monotone approach is realy great.

the monotone one is better, but i think the text's color is a bit too bright (if compared to the background) and the stroke or glow's color doesnt suit the background

01-28-2004, 04:40 PM
Good enough to submit to the site?
I would be amazed if it got it right the first time around...

o well...
faster poster then me :rolleyes:

01-28-2004, 04:42 PM
Much better, I agree with Kelvin on the text, you should try to make the stroke/glow a different/darker colour and see how it works out.

01-28-2004, 04:47 PM
btw for submiting u should have a 1024x768 size wp.

01-28-2004, 04:48 PM
I thought the quote went "Anything worth fighting for is worth dieing for" :o
but it looks very nice with the monotone ^-^(besides what has already been said)

01-28-2004, 04:59 PM
i am really confused :D :rolleyes:
i made the "text" darker...
and i tried to blend the "stroke" more with the background...
if i made the "stroke" darker...
Like EternalBlue said...
you wouldnt be able to read the text...
unless i made the "text" brighter...
which really gots me in a pickle... :wub:
so me confused...
lets just say i hope i got it right this time :D
thanks for all your help guys...
i also like the monotone wp much more...
thanks pooky :wub:

01-28-2004, 05:01 PM
I thought the quote went "Anything worth fighting for is worth dieing for"

it is...
i seen it the other way though...
and i liked it more...
is it distracting?
i dont like it if its gonna ruin my pic :rolleyes:
o crap...
thanks Wizzard...

the comment is just distracting to me because it doesnt make sense that way around ^-^;(only my opinion, dont mind it)

(p.s. i know this isnt were im supposed to post this junk :D )

Thanks for all your input so far... :wub:
my wp has come pretty far
btw... feckless means pointless... :unsure:
cuz all of you made fun of me sayin they didnt look good together :D
now they are pointlessly together :rolleyes:

01-30-2004, 06:43 AM
well in my opinion

the text and the tone of the wall is a great combination but the wall seema too blurry. When you enlage it, it kinda making it's pixels larger meaning it will make the increse of the resolution a prob.

you better try to do it better

no offence but you gotta try harder

01-30-2004, 07:09 AM
Btw. what program do u use for makin wp.
If u use PhotoShop u can clear the chars a bit using Filter > Blur > Smart Blur

01-30-2004, 01:15 PM
this is it...
last time im opening this wallpaper...
if it gets picked then yay...
if not... o well :unsure:
thanks for all the help guys... and gals :D

01-30-2004, 01:54 PM
oooo......really good

01-30-2004, 04:05 PM
hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm well it does look alot better then the first submission, its nice for a collage, but I hope you decided to either do a collage of similar themed/same series anime or pick a charicter and or group and keep the images all the same style.
