Okay so this wallpaper is...
1) My first original art wallpaper XD
2) A first serious dark wallpaper for a long time
3) [strike]kind of[/strike] monochromatic
4) Composed of lots of ideas put up together
5) my 13th wall *eep*
There are 2 versions:
I used this sketch.
It's something I made on one of those sleepless night. It's horrible, I know. It looked like the bird is growing from some kind of onion. So I just vectored it. Hope the vector is better and not as bad as the sketch.
The idea "mind game" was from, you know those pictures psychologist or shrink used to show people and then they ask them what they see. Well this wall is kind of like that (at least that what I'm trying to do. There are the birds, the cross, the butterflies (there's supposed to be 2 of them, the little one and the big one), and the flower (it's supposed to be an orchid).
Please tell me what you think about it and just be honest. The last time I made a dark wall it didn't go so well. This wall feels not right so constructive critics are much appreciated.
Oh and here's the more simple version with higher contrast
Please please give me suggestions. I really want to improve it... and please be specific. Thank you very much in advance.
Fine, Gabychan. I´ll give you my constructive critique.
You´re idea is good and the vector work too.
From my taste, I would choose the reddish one. The gray one is too much cold.
1)The shading of the wall perimeter, rests visibility to your vector work of the birds: The wings of the birds are blended to the background. Doing that, you loose the vector impression.
2)You have to put the cross behind the birds. Similar reason to the shadow perimeter: It ruins your vector work. The cross traces intercept the vector ones, and it gives to it an overcharged look.
3)The light ray of the left side is more bright than the other.
4)The text work and the font it´s not the best for your piece: Words with their shadow effect seem to be floating in the center of the wall not belonging to it.
And you have writted a long segment. If you notice, the purple flag is a good place for writting the text. But you writted some words that go below the flag. That gives the impression of a tittle that left without heading, or words that are out of place.
5)The butterfly looks a little bit tridimensional. It doesn´t match very good with your nate vector.
What I can suggest for you to improve your wall:
1)Paint the top part of the bird of a lighter color, blending a little in the extremes for balancing the dark and light.
2)You can contour the letters with the trace color of the vector and just a pixel thin [If they´re going to be light yellow]. It helps to make the words more attached to the other work.
3)Replace the cross behind the birds.
4)Fix the words for they could see more structured. Giving all words their own place, everything you wanted.
That´s just from my view.
Anyways, I hope this is helpful for you.
I like the first wallpaper version (red version), but i see the birds a little too dark (for my taste). They barely can notice. I think maybe if you try to put some shadows or border color a little lighter (not to much, to mantain the contrast of the vector)..
For everybody else i like the art.
Good job (nice and clean) Gaby-chan.
Well, Gaby-chan.. this wall is totally cool!!!!!
I prefer the High Contrast version myself.
I might not have as much insight as others but your already a good waller and know all the in's and outs as it is. So, the only thing for me in the high contrast version.. is the text... I'd move it up a bit and make it a ting bit bigger.. say one or two from where it is.. or go by halfs if you can.
Other then that I don't see anything else that need's tending to but that's probably just me. So, good luck and hope to see this wall in the gallery's.
