    I think it looks pretty awesome.

    I don't see why you'd want your forum username on your desktop, though.

    Looks very good for a first timer!
    Really, very good.

    Although your name shouldn't be on there, or definately not so visible.
    And the right side of the light thingy is a bit weird.

    I don't recall him saying that was his end-all thief deterrent.
    In fact all he said was to remind HIM that HE did it.
    Besides it's not like he's distributing this and to be honest who steals wallpapers as their own?

    Erm, Mr. Ducky? I have some opinions that might improve your wallpaper [​IMG]
    1. In the Center beam, it might be better if you add some scattered brush but it is spiralling. It will add more atmosphere.
    2. The "soul" like (sorry, I don't know how to say [​IMG]) that gathered spirally might be good if you turn the opacity down a bit, it might good~

    Maybe I could give you the example (based from what I learned), luckily, I have saved it~ :

    You can have it~ It is just my example~ [​IMG]

    Uh, sorry, I could make it clear~ [​IMG]

    I mean about the beam that shot vertically and straight, it is better (from my perspective) if you add some scattered brush (the brush type might be better using small circle) around that straight beam~ [​IMG]

    I like it. Clean and simple. Personally, I would like it a little more if the beam in the center kind of flared out a little... dunno how to explain that... like it is kind of wisping out. Just don't like how it is so concentrated.

    Anyway, come to think of it, the wallpaper kind of reminds me of Metroid Prime 3.

    Really Good, Although for the beam in the middle, I'd blur or flair It just looks to.. plain. Or maybe a spiral.

    Other than that I think its a great first wallpaper

    Ditch the lens flare, make the spiraling ghost things less solid, and the blue glow a bit more blurry.
