Wallpaper

Hi there folks!
As a beginner photoshopper and a shredder, i decided to make myself a shred wallpaper for my laptop:

since my friend is a vai fan and liked it too, i made one specially dedicated to Vai:

http://oi49.tinypic.com/3480m11.jpg
well, accually three.
So I hope you like them, feel free to put them as your wallpaper.

The first one is smaller resolution, so it won't fit bigger screens.
If you have any suggestions, wishes that i could make true, just tell me.
Peace,,

Re: Wallpaper

Not bad work. You could stand to make the guitars blend into the background better. Right now they look kind of cut and paste.

This is an easy Photoshop trick. Once you have the guitars placed where you want them, duplicate the layer that they're on. Then apply a Gaussian Blur to the bottom layer. It will make the guitars have a nice blended edge without messing up the image of the guitar.

I made a background for my computer with my own personal guitar collection.

Re: Wallpaper

I think you're overdoing it a bit. EVO looks like it's glowing. You only want it to feather for a few pixels, just enough to soften the edge.
