My First Gimp Wallpaper (1080p)
Press on the Pic for 1080p

Shadows are wrong, It took me a while to get them right and after I saved I noticed the lights on the ceiling, but whatever. What do you think?

This isn't that bad, but it also isn't my style

It looks very good for someone making there first Wallpaper Big Grin, so keep going mate

On the Background, if that was a stock image then this might be harder, but if you put a render on it to give it depth, take and select the background and add a Blur too it, this really helps add some depth to the image. You could even try doing this for the whole back wall

For the images on the side, as Ofnuts said, they are not the same size, and I would create a new layer, and select the area that the images on the walls cover, and add a very light Gradient from Light near the front and dark near the back, this will also help create Depth.

The lights on top are a simple Re-Color.

The guy on the left in Front, starts disappearing twords the bottom... Was this intended?

Overall though, nice job for your first time mate Big Grin

Thanks so much, I actually barely know anything about GIMP, I just did this from gut. I did notice the background was too sharp, maybe I'll start again from scratch, I wasn't trying to make it perfect I just wanted to see what I could do. The guy on the left just came that way, he's from Killzone 3 and one section of the campaign is snowy.

1) they lack perspective (head should be smaller)
2) they are too sharp (unless you assume a very sharp spot light, the shadow blurs as it is farther from its origin, so the shadows of the heads should be more blurred than those of the legs)

There is also a slight asymmetry (more space on the left)... wanted or not?

As I said in my reply to Willy, I wasn't going for perfection, I just wanted to see what I could do. thanks for the good criticism, I'll keep that in mind next time I make something.Smile
