Really frustrated so I want your opinion

So I've been working on this for a really long time, well, 1 week and a half actually, but I've been trying my best, and I can't really get it done.

Last tuesday was the Bday of a very special person for me, so besides what I bought as a gift, I thought about making a custom wallpaper for this person, I have A LOT of versions, but for some reason I ended with this one.

My monitor is really messed up, it's not even 1/4 of both brightness and contrast and is still TOOOOOO bright for me to notice the errors, and I've been asking to people what's wrong but no one can tell me what is it, a friend just said some comments this weekend and I'm really happy as he did know what was he talking about (he works as a video game programmer and he's currently making a video game so he has been checking the art for all this time ^_^) but still I'd like to see if anyone could give me any suggestion about it.

This is part of the not so known collection made by Devil Doll Designs (aka either D3 or DDD ) and as I said, it's a simple version of a custom wallpaper, as you can see this person LOVES wolves.

Clicky!!!!

And yeah, don't say anything about the pink color on the right corner below, that's how I do that in ALL my work

Niiice puppy...

Ah, but where's the wolf's gentle puppy-dog aspect? A skilled hunter, it is also a social animal! perhaps something like this in the background would balance the message a bit...

hey lynk, did u give Mr. Weasel his annual rabies shot?


Battle is a pure form of expression. It is heart and discipline, reduced to movement and motion. In battle, the words are swept away, giving way to actions-- mercy, sacrifice, anger, fear. These are pure moments of expression.

*sighs* Anyway, i think I'm just leaving it like that, Considering the one I made this for, a "social aspect" is totally out of question in this image, i think I just need to take classes to learn how to make good things.

Hey I like it.. that's pretty good. However, you may want to soften the edges around the lower right wolf... besides that it's all pretty nicely put together.

I agree with TTL. Soften the edges of the lower right wolf. I'd also say possibly making the other images a little *less* transparent, so they stand out a bit more. I don't think it'd take away from the main image.


It's my mission to thoroughly corrupt each and every one of you.
