From Simple to Outstanding

Hi all!
One of my friend has asked me how to make a good wallpaper..
Even though,I still a little not too good at some wallpapers.. ^^

We will go together step by step,
Are you ready?? XD
So here is some tips..
1. Find some resources of nice graphics or pictures
You can find it everywhere in internet
It includes a simple thing like landscapes
You can find it mostly at http://www.deviantart.com/

2. Develop some of ideas in your mind,what the wallpaper you want to create,looks like
This stage needs some touch of imagination..
(Just like Spongebob?? Tee Hee)

3. Try to combine your ideas with the graphics you found in step 1..

4. This is the artistic step!!! XD
Use brushes to complete the pretiness of your wallpaper..
The renders are from:
However,I kinda avoid this step now,because,A good art mades from natural things(become a photomanipulation then),so it becomes more harder,and worthy to the creator..
~Some people usually happy,and proud to them self,how they were able to create a very good wallpaper,but the wallpaper's beautiness was innatural(my opinion)~
But,every choice youi made is really up to you..

5. Bla Bla Bla.. LOL.. XD
Add every worthy part to make it nice,Pal!!

6. The essential thing of a wallpaper...
Don't forget some credits!!
Credits is about where you get the resources of images from,the brushes,and so on..
YOu aren't really respecting the creator of the brush and image renderers,and you are a plagiarizer..
Whoa.. It's bad thing,guys...

Well.. Those are my simple things to make a walpaper.. How was that?
I hope you enjoy this.. ^^

Wallpapers ^^

Some people have asked me how do I make those wallpapers..
Well,the question is quite simple..
Keep practicing.. because from a practice you can know what is good,and not,and there are some useable thing that might help you to make your own creations..
LOL! Let's get it started!!

First of all.. There are some tips of tiny progress that maybe useable for you.. Because I experienced that by my own..
1. Make sure you have some stock photos that able to be knocked out as a *brand new wallpaper* XDD
More commonly,these stocks are about landscapes things..
This is the example of my first wallpaper,that the object put into it..External Image

2. Try to use the brushes things.. Because it is quite usable.. and easy
BUT.. You musn't forget about credits!!
Some people forget about it,and think it as an appropriate one.. ><
Not only that.. They also write the most unmarvelous thing..
OMG.. I hate this things.. XO like.. ______'s Art & Design..
My Opinion:That is very very embarassing plagiriasm if you're not the creator of the brush...!Because you don't own it,and you say it was your design?
If you are the creator of the brush,then,you are free to use it,and say that as your own..
There are many good renders that provides you good stocks and brushes..
Most of all are founded in DA..http://www.deviantart.com/
I don't want to dissapoint you,but..
Some work that are use a tiny details of brushes are better,because they shows the originality of the art you've just made..

So.. I hope you can be better than before..
I'm sorry if I have somekind of annoying thoughts to you.. :3
And,if you want to ask me something,I'll try to help you..
You can PM me,or ask in my portfolio,or else.. ^^

(But,my DA have less wallpaper things instead of TheO.. ><
I have no time to update.. XO)
