Everybody has to start somewhere , I know you're number 1 problem, far too many objects in each wallpaper, focus on one main object and then try to maybe add one more but be really subtle about it (maybe have a larger team logo faded in the back.. or a smaller one with the players name incorporated some way). Another thing, try having solid colors in your background or fades and stuff like that, when you have an image like a stadium it's distracting and leads the eye in a lot of different direction. Take a look at some of the stuff snipeshow's stuff, he's pro at player wallpapers. Keep practicing and honing your skills!

The Kipper is the best.

I like the Koivu/Selanne one but the red background could be a different color. Hard on the eyes for me.

One quick thing of advice. On the Richards one, make sure you don't have any of the BG covering his face as one of the triangles is directly over his face. Just erase those triangles and it looks much better.

I didn't notice that until after I made it my desktop wallpaper and then I cried.

New ones, the Tim Thomas one is pretty old though I just haven't posted it, because personally I don't like it much:



Jussi Rynnäs:


Matt Duchene:


E: Full-sized versions of the first five are 1280X1024 and for the last four 1920X1080. You can get them by asking in this thread.
