    I'm not very confident about this. But this is the first wallpaper I've ever made, and this is for SF.
    And of course, It needs improvement. :)
    Looks great Ken! :) Are you aware that your text slants slightly? Apart from that, I can't think of any way to improve it.
    Yeah! I'm changing it tomorrow. Can you suggest a visual effect, style or font, for the text? Would also like to hear other suggestions such as background.

    Are the lines behind the text a motion blur layer? I think it would be better if it was symmetrical, just make a guide line at 50% horizontal, cut half of it out, duplicate the other half, flip it and move it. I wouldn't put any more visual effects on it, you don't want to take the focus away from the centre :) I really like the open space in it, I don't like complicated wallpapers, icons tend to get lost in the image if there's too much going on. And I also think the font is great :)

    Ghastly thing?

    @Influx, my opinion of course, I think a dark background would work better, such as metallic or black carbon, perhaps a hex grid.

    For those that don't have the luxury of having a graphics package like PhotoShop or Corel. Here's a great bit of software that allows you to convert a conventional photo into a painting and it's free. FotoSketcher
    It's really easy to use and requires no graphic knowledge and can produce some great results. You can turn some of your downloaded wallpapers into a painting in just a few clicks.

    If your PC is a bit on the small side it might take a while to render especially if you are using a large image, but it's worth the wait .... enjoy
