    The resolution is 1920x1080. I didn't water mark it because I'm not an asshole and will save you the 20 seconds it would take for you to remove it. You're welcome.

    Well done. The only things I dislike is that the focus is on the guitars, not the empty white space, which is how it's supposed to be, except if I used it my icons would be right on top of the guitars. It would make more sense to maybe put them in the middle or on the other side.

    Yes, that is a problem too. However, I would not recommend placing the guitar(s) in the center though as it is too ordinary. I usually put my vocal point in the middle of right-center.

    Example:
    Code:
    if this is the center...         
                                     v
     [screen                          |                  screen] 
                                     ^
    then I would put it near the center,
    but just a little off to give it a more different appeal.
    
     [screen                          |     [B][I]here.[/I][/B]        screen]
                                     
    
    I also would suggest adding some blurry dots. You can either do it manually by getting a small solid brush and then clicking randomly around the spiral, changing sizes and opacity as you go.

    Or you can play around with the scattering settings on the brush's settings to make it scatter and it should already adjust the opacity for you then just click your mouse and follow the spiral.

    Whichever way you choose, I would recommend blurring some dots and then sharpening some too. Do not overdo the sharpening and blurring, though, and definitely do not overdo the dots. I used this same effect using the scattering in my Heart wallpaper.

    The pen work is really really great; you picked the perfect brush and the fade is spot-on. Overall, very nice, just work on a few things to make it really pop and add that really nice glow effect to it.

    You didn't completely erase the blue bits where it goes behind the guitar. Specifically in the white line going up the middle.

    EDIT: highlighted.

    i think the initial stroke, not the outer glow, should have lower opacity
    like lower the fill opacity i guess lol

    I don't quite understand what you're saying. You're supposed to see behind the guitar in that little white bit.
