OCN Wallpaper. I Need Some Advice.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I made this wallpaper, but I couldn't think of a good quote to put on it. Also, I need better positioning of the text, because when I set it as my wallpaper, the bottom bar covers it up.



What do you guys think?

Looks pretty cool!

My only tips:
-Try fading the gray part in the background out instead of just ending it.
-MAYBE make the text bigger though. It's really personal preference though, I think it would be fine either way.

Also, maybe "Light", or "Streaks"/"OCN Streaks" for a name?

Thanks for the input. Unfortunately I can't do anything about the gray lines ending abrubtly due to the fact that they are brushes and If I try to fade them with the eraser, it will fade the glow on the other lines. I will try your advice on making the text bigger as well. Thanks again.

As far as typography layout. I would position the text on the left side horizontal of the light line on the right because you have more of a defining graphic on the right. The bottom left of the logo has more dead/ black space and it will cause the text to balance such an area.

Edit:
Maybe also add some highlights inside the black of the con because it is too dark
