OKey dokey ive finally gotten into the mood of wallpapering again and unfortunately im stuck for ideas

i want to have a pretty decent wallpaper but i dont know how to go about it, so maybe some tutorials or something to work with

or maybe some input for ideas as to what i can have in the background and maybe other scans to use?

anyway for those that dont know Kaleido Star its basically a circus/acrobatic type anime and the character here, Layla, is one of their top performers

at the moment ive just got layla to the right and a blank background so i have something to work with

here is the wallpaper itself interms of how it looks atthe moment

Suggestion: Maybe have her spotlighted and getting ready to step onto a tight rope with the circus and audience in the back ground. OR create a promotional wallpaper for one the series shows or a completely fabricated one (with layla as the star and the remaining cast acting in the background.

Do not interfere in the affairs of dragons, for you are crunchy and good with ketchup.

hm, basically the same things i said on irc, but =P

i think the person above gave a pretty accurate description of what i'd have in mind. spotlight would definitely be an awesome effect and having her step out onto a tightrope.

or what else i had in mind was that you could have a guy on the left side bowing to her and have the background set in a golden castle xD [like the taj mahal, preferably :3 would be pretty cool] but that'd be rather difficult, huh? ^^;;

hehe, whatever ideas and whatever setting. as long as it matches and seems to incorporate her into the background, i think, would be fine. best of luck and i look forward to when i get to comment the actual wall ^.~

:o I like that suggestion. Perhaps you should check out this wall at animepaper.net >> One With The Freaks.

I'd say keep the colors but the starry background is a good start. the outfit suggests priate princess or arabian nights so you might want to think about those themes

I think the wall would be more eye-catching if you keep the colors. & since you're doing a star field, why not try a planet or 2? It would anchor the image more.

Frankly, I don't know if it is such a good idea to use that as the background.... From what I know, the character and the background must link in theme for a good art piece.

Your character gives me an Arabic impression; from her attire, so it would be advisable to use an Arabic themed background...

Isn't Kaleido Star a circus? I think a desert sunset image faded in the background and then lights around her (like the lights in the tent and flashes from cameras). I like the idea of a planet! My idea: starry sky, faded desert sunset, big moon on the horizon, maybe the flashes...her outfit is so dramatic that I can't stop thinking of ideas.

Ripping walls? You're headed to Banned-ville.
