    Mhhh I dont ike it, is just a brown gradient with some text and strange creatures (are those pokemons?). The color palette dont match, the text 3d effect neither match with the plain pokemons.

    If you want to use the little creatures (in fact are cute), try using a color palette according to them, and try to avoid the text. I think that something more colorful or maybe a landscape in plain vector forms (something like Marios backgrounds) will works better.

    I have to agree with samigina. Also, the text, I can barely see it at all.

    I think the creatures can see my soul.

    Do be so harsh guys. A critique would be better.

    I see what you were trying to do. What I think might be good is if you filled that space in a bit more. (Not sure with what mind, Maybe some swirls, japanese comic stylee)

    Also with the text, I like the idea, but I feel there is too much text for it to be subtle. If you were to use the logo instead of text then you could use the subtle look.

    As it stands the text should be more visible. I like that you've used the Ubuntu font for the text but i feel there is too much text. A wallpaper, generally is to be looked at. not read.

    I hope you keep on with the project!

    Hello,

    I agree with davbren.

    Perhaps using the Circle of Friends in your design instead of all that text would make it look better. You can get official logos and such like from here.

    I would love to see any changes you make to this wallpaper as I think it could be a winner

    Well, I like the beasties, and don't mind the text.

    But I have to ask, did you make the beasties yourself or did you find them somewhere?

    The cutting out round them is far from perfect with anti-aliasing and white pixel problems, making me think that they were not vectors you created.

    If I've got this wrong then sorry in advance.
