Hello!

I've just finished a vector I called Smoke on the water,featuring Kaji Ryouji from Evangelion.

I will soon submit it on MT, but I hesitate : where should I upload it? Indy Art since it's a vector, or Wallpaper? The original resolution is 1920x1080, and it looks pretty good on a desktop but it isn't as detailed as the others wallies so I don't know... :( On the other hand, if I upload this as a Wallpaper, I'll upload an extracted version (only Kaji's face on a white background) in Indy Art as well, in case someone would like to use it.

Anyway... I would love your opinion. Where do you think I should upload it? If you think that it should go in Wallpaper, do you see something that I should improve?

Thanks in advance, and have a nice day!

I think that should go to the Indy Art section , since it's a vector art .

If you're planning to submit it as a wallpaper , I think you can do much more than just place a cloud background on it , like giving it some textures , designs etc. (or maybe you can add text as well)

Well, I would submit it under the Indy Art section better, for a wallpaper it looks a tad too simplistic.

Headshot wallpapers are kinda tough to work with. Unless you make a huge transformation to the scan/screenshot, like vexeling or painting. the wall will look...err, plain.
Quiet by jns
Quiet by jns Is a headshot wallpaper, but it's extremely effective as you can see, jns painted the scan and give it a soft look.
Gentle Rain by Yamionpu
Gentle Rain by Yamionpu another example, Yamionpu gave the original screencap a little pump with more shades.

I think that the key to an effective headshot wallpaper is adding details, not a bunch of details but the right amount does the trick.
I hope this was somewhat helpful 8)

First of all, I'd like to thank both of you for your time; I mean it, really!

I knew that something was missing, and you both confirmed that it was a bit too plain. The comparison with Quiet or Gentle Rain is helpful, even though I don't know exactly what to do for a wallpaper... But I think I'll figure out something. Soon. :P (I have an idea, but I don't know if I will be able to pull it out successfully).

I'll upload the current version soon, in Indy Art because I think this is its right place...

Can I use this thread to show you what I will come up with? I think I'll need your help again, since I never really did good wallpapers (just crappy ones :D).
