    title says cool but it ain’t

  12. @Vikas / Ozzysong – When I look at this a couple things are noticeable. First, punching out the photo from the background has left a halo. There are methods to get better at this. But for starters, blur the edges a little. Second thing, the lighting is a too much. I notice the glow on the globe is too extreme, it seems very fake and not very interesting. Lastly, details are important. Good job using texture on the globe to make it more complex. But if you make it smaller, and add textures to the other elements of the page, it will add some depth to the image.

    Basically, I know your whole tutorial was about being QUICK. Just remember that 99% of the wallpaper out there is successful because of its complexity and beauty. Even good simple designs are well thought out.

    Great first start though, and welcome to the world of Photoshop.

  13. Yup I agree with that the lighting could have been better. Thanks for sharing anyways.
