My last wallpaper (that you can see here) has been deleted because of : "The resources in the background are heavily enlarged."

Ah, yes, that's why I told you to choose your BGs better because the one in the deleted wall looked low quality and pixelated/blurry. The second version looks slightly better but that black portion on the bottom still looks so out of place. Have you tried using a different set of brushes/textures for the background? Perhaps bigger ones might do the trick (bigger ones, not resized to a bigger size XD).

I think I have some of the same kind that must be bigger and without the black portion... I must check, though !

I noticed that you submitted a wall here but I couldn't view it,it was already deleted. And I didn't checked it on TheO ^^;;;;
What Alenas said is right. The bottom doesn't blend with the rest of the BG. I believe that I have some large textures. I'll send you some if they still exist :3

I didn't see your first version but I know how does enlarged textures look like. Be sure to stay away from small textures when making a wall!

Oh, this is merely an opinion, but I think orange look would much better than dark pink fir the text, but not a very strong orange.Also I think the brown bar at the bottom doesn't look good because of the lack above it. I think you should make its color white and use a different font for your sign, not a script type, but a basic type. Your current sign is not that legible actually. Well, it's only for your sake!

Just work the vector, and not much larger, use multiple layers or layer masks to leave a better finish. and do not forget to leave your sources ^-^

Good luck :)

I did saw your wall. The bg was low in quality and blurry. Vectoring is best to use to get rid of low quality in images. Textures will work as well. :)

You should totally try to change stoke paths too. They look very unprofessional and don't have that natural flow going on.
As for the bg, try better brushes, hd one, or bigger. Or just vector some flowers, that can always work too. :3

Have fun, good luck.

Here is the latest update of my wallpaper : [update]
And, for the vector itself, how can I say that... Considering the fact that it is actually my first one, for now, I can't do better and I am still learning how to use layer paths... Changing it would be a very bad idea for now.

Thank you for your advices about it, though ! :)

Oh, the background looks definitely better now, yes - the texture is pretty nice and crisp and that black spot is gone. My only suggestion now would be to somehow blend that text better into the background - try playing with blending modes and opacity/fill options to better make it blend in.

Also, while you still don't feel comfortable working with shape layers, some of those lines (paths) look as if they've been cut or stopped in the middle of a line and then continued with another set of paths - you can make one path for one longer line, you know like in those curves of that rope thingy going out from her collar and curve them by tweaking paths. Hope that helps. Keep it up! :)
